    Ughhh feel a bit bad and want to let people have 1 more day to get their entries in since there are actually a couple more interested people... I hope this doesn't sound to unfair.

    @Balmory, Maybe try putting a 1 or 2 px outside stroke around the text to make the text stand out better!

    Nice one jodey! Any animation would be awesum tho. It just makes the banner 'Pops out' at the gtop100 site. Maybe fading this banner into some picture with a GM char and some text '24/7 online' or something. Idunno tho, I Ain't that pro at drawing =)

    Fuck it, yeah I'll give this event another week any maybe change the prizes a bit. I suppose the banner needs to be as good as possible so as many entries as possible is best. Again, I hope this doesn't sound too unfair on the 2 previous entrants that participated in time.

    And yep, I'll let people vote!

    Gave it a try while waiting for the server to get back up. Nothing fancy tho.,

    For some reason I can't put the .png files in the attachment, so if you'd need them I'll send them later.

    If you check the gtop100 maple website there is some animated gif banners so I'm assuming it would be allowed.

    Still accepting entries? I may be new to the server, but I would still like to enter a banner.

    I worked on for a bit since I last posted in the thread lol. I gave you both png and jpg as well as gif (animated).

    728 x 90 animated: (The file size is too large to upload (5mb) I'm using tinypic to upload my images and it does not allow 5mb and above. I made an animated 728 x 90 banner, but I can't upload it atm (plus i'm too lazy to reduce to file size lol...)

    Edit: I also read that some people don't know how to make banners. I use gimp, just look up some tutorials on gimp and get used to how to use it, then you should be golden c: I make all of my banners and gfx work with gimp.
