  1. Ok so Runie has expressed that my banner is lame (eff you too) so this is an open invitation for anyone to create us a new one. Thank you Smoke Bullet!
  2. I hate this ugly olive green background. It used to be transparent but somehow I crapped it up and my only option seemed to be opaque colors. Does anyone have ANY idea how I can make that background transparent again? *Solved! I'm a genius
  3. The buttons at the top are also a bit out of place, uneven, and inconsistent. Again, an open invitation for anyone to make us some new ones Smile I would like the tiny guild seal to be present on the Log in/out tab. Preferably gold and then grey respectively.Thanks Icarus!
  4. Fable III has been released and it sounds like you guys want to incorporate the new features of the game into our forum somehow. Share some ideas, create new banners, suggest new locations, what have you!

Have at it you creativity nuts!

If you want to give me temporary management I can try and find where you can make the background transparent. We can commission Ash for the banner and buttons :3. I always went to him to make my sites look like sex, and they always turned out great. If not, I'm going to ask Del about this free Photoshop-like program you can download and maybe I can work some magic.

Does 'New PM' replace 'PM' when you have one? Or what?

Yeah but it doesn't really stand out or grab your attention ya know? it's just the same color and if you happen to look up you'll see it.

I'm not much a fan of the olive green, but you can make the white in the banner and the buttons transparent in Photoshop (google Photoshop CS4 Micro) and save it as a PNG. That'll make it work here, on the forums.

I could TRY to make some stuff, but I'm not that good at it. If you really want me to give it a shot, I will.

Go for it Nick! I'll take any and all feedback. It's better to have a collaboration of ideas.

It's fine. I'm not that great, but I know how to work stuff. If you can come up with anything better, I won't be offended if you post it up :P

So I found this site and it actually has buttons so we can make those ghetto things up there look nice.

Here's the Link: TADA

I made a few. I know they're big so obviously we'd shrink them to fit the menu more. We'll just have to make them .gifs and make the backgrounds transparent. You can make your own if you want.

[Edit]
I moved all the pics so all the images are broken. I'm too lazy to repost them

Yay new buttons! I actually don't think my computer can do anything with those right now (all I have is paint...). So whenever I get home we'll make them fit and put them in!

OK so Ash made fun of me and is going to do the menu buttons properly. hahahaha which I'm OK with. When I shrunk the images it was too hard to read the words, and I couldn't get the backgrounds to be transparent.
