I thought I posted this last night but dont see it up - perhaps the forum hamsters ate it.
Since I am getting better with Gimp as I struggle along learning it (was doing work on creating buttons) I decided to take a stab at a few other banner options.
I am going to mirror the text in the banner with my buttons so bear that in mind while voting. (I hate you - stop posting on the forums is not a vote by the way.)
Option "one":http://i240.photobucket.com/albums/ff300/A-G-A/Banner7.png gloss BWF, no glow, glowing runes, centered text.
Option "two":http://i240.photobucket.com/albums/ff300/A-G-A/Banner6.png BWF in caps, offset, glow effect.
Option "three":http://i240.photobucket.com/albums/ff300/A-G-A/Banner5.png centered BWF in glow text.
Option "four":http://i240.photobucket.com/albums/ff300/A-G-A/Banner4.png centered BWF, no glow.
Still a little weak I know, but better than the crap I have up by far I think. Vote and be heard!
