No preference really, just something representative of whatever forum it is. Maybe a bunch of various game characters or something for gaming...stuff like that.

This is kind of a rough draft, but I don't really know what else to add to it:

Any suggestions?

I like it, but it also kind of rips off some things from a bigger forum, MFGG. I would pick some more obscure characters so we don't look all mainstream.

Unless that's what you're going for, in which case, it's good.

these are the things in question. Although I suppose a header is not really the same as a post tag...

I think he's picking at the theme. Also - double posting is a bad no-no. Edit your post next time Cacturne.

Personally, I don't mind the banner's design. If we wanted to make it broader in terms of it's relation to "other gaming", it could have controllers and consoles in the banner instead. As it currently is though, this is perfect.

For some reason, I never thought of controllers/consoles. I tried to pick characters that fit each company/system pretty well (Sony was the hardest to think of), since technology will keep expanding and it'll be easier to just have characters there so we don't have to remake the banner every time a new system comes out.

Or something.

I suppose it doesn't really matter to me if we want to do consoles - I can do that instead. The difficult part is, like I said, when the new generation comes out we'll have to make a new one. I'll try to get it made and up today, once my computer's hooked up (currently using my parental units').

I understand what you're saying, in fact, I never even thought about next gen consoles. However, it's not that big of a deal in a way - just look at the Backloggery's default banner:

You don't have to make something too complex - in fact, it'd just be better to get something that says "Other Games". Another recommendation is placing in a few "screen shots" from some of the most popular 16-bit games, like Super Mario Bros., Sonic (very first one), Mega Man 1, etc...

I have another idea, but I can't post an image (all hosts are blocked here at school).

What if we just did a totem pole of the most iconic for each company? For example, an Xbox 360 with a NES on top of that, with a Sega Genesis or something?

DP - What about Microsoft and Sony? Don't forget PCs. If we just have 16-bit games, we'll have Nintendo, Sonic, and... TurboGrafx? *shudder*

Cacturne - The problem is that there are arguments over which is the best. Some might say the Super NES was the most forward thinking, while others would say the N64 or the Wii.

And of course, we don't have to use consoles or controllers - it was just a thought. If the character one is good with everyone, we'll use that. We can always change it if someone comes up with a better idea (where's Ego when you need him?).

We could also do a thing like this shirt I saw:

with the logos for the various more well known companies, i.e. Sega, Nintendo, Microsoft, Atari, maybe Game Freak, Sony, etc.

I could try and fiddle with something.

I'm lazy though, this could take a couple of months.

So, uh... I guess if there aren't any more objections or whatnot, let's have this as the General Gaming Banner:

If anybody wants to replace it with something of their own later, we can decide at that time. But it'll be nice to have at least something there.
