Post Skadi Banners Here!

Does anyone here know how to make banners? I want one, and know just how I want it to look, but have no idea how to actually make one.
If anyone reading this knows how, I'm speaking to you:
I can't pay you for your services, but I'll be your best friend. lol

N.B. Banner rules:
  • Banners must be pleasing to the aesthetic standards of the eye, and must be compliant with all Skadi Rules.
  • Banners must seek to represent Skadi Forum's Germanic orientation and its mission statement.
  • No political themes, symbols or devotionalia.
  • All banners should be able to be displayed without distortion of the aspect in a resolution of exactly 800 x 126 px which is also the minimal resolutions in which banners have to submitted. Preferably, they should be designed and submitted in a resolution which is proportionally larger, however (e.g. 1200 x 189 or 1600 x 252).
  • The text on the banners must read "Skadi Forum", "Germanic Online Community", no other additions. Exception: special/occasional banners such as for Yule, in such case the additional text will be discussed and decided upon with the administration.
  • Banners are acceptable in both black and white or color format, however we much prefer color (we only have one black and white forum style).
  • All banners must come in .jpg format or other easily convertible formats (no .gifs or .pngs with transparent backgrounds, no animations, etc).
  • Please make sure to include the original layered design file (e.g. .psd in case of Photoshop) and the fonts in case they are less common, too.
Please note that while contributions are appreciated, it is not guaranteed that all banners will be accepted and displayed on Skadi Forum. If it should be felt that some banners lack in visual quality or clarity, or simply don't represent the forum well, they might not be displayed. Where possible though, modifications will be suggested/requested.

Rules added by the Skadi Forum Administration,
15 January 2011

Aloysha was so kind to create a new banner for our forum. I like it actually a lot. What do you all think about it? Should we give the forum a new look? Any suggestions or ideas for further improvements?

I like the banner, Aloysha, however, I am of the opinion that the old banner should stay, if given the choice between the two.
Can you make a few more banners, in different styles, and perhaps we can vote?

The advantage of Aloysha's banner is that the violett bankground blends extremely well into the color of the buttons and the current layout. A visual change is also overdue for a long time.

The disadvantage is that there would be a layout breach to the main site logo.



Please, everyone, let us know what you think.

Also, a new layout and color scheme is a good idea, Njord.

I want to get a total custom skin and templates, something like the phoeniX dragoN project (http://beta.pixicore.com/) but different: something Gothic/Heathen that fits to the theme of Skadi.

Unfortunately, the templates of vBulletin 3 Beta are still partly hardcoded and will change before the RC. Means that none of the great design companies will waste its time to create custom skins, because they would have to redo everything, once the RC version is released. We still have to wait a bit, until vBulletin finalizes its templates.

Post vBulletin 3 RC1 Status Update

vBulletin 3 RC1 Status Update

Since vBulletin 3 Beta 7 was released on September 27th, a little over a month has passed. In that time we have spent our efforts preparing the first Release Candidate of vBulletin 3.

Amongst the other things going on, these are the major activities in which the development team are currently engaged:

1. Fixing the remaining reported bugs.
2. Simplifying the variables being used in template conditionals
3. Making the templates multi-lingual by moving text into the language/phrase system
4. Completely rewriting all the templates to use the new vBulletin 3 style.

Many of you are interested in learning about the final style that will be unveiled with the RC for the first time. The new style will be much more than a few color changes. The current style distributed with the vBulletin 3 beta releases is little more than a cleaned-up version of the vBulletin 2 style, with the extra vBulletin 3 functionality shoe-horned into it, resulting in a lot of screen clutter and a confusing interface. On the other hand, the new vBulletin 3 style has been designed from the ground up to be the best possible window into the rich functionality of the new system. Our goals for the style include the following:

1. Reduce interface clutter in order to present a cleaner page to users, which is more friendly to novice users
2. Prioritize controls so that most frequently used buttons/links etc. are instantly available, while less frequently used or more complex features are hidden or made less obvious in order to prevent novice users from becoming confused or overwhelmed
3. Ensure XHTML 1.0 Transitional compliance for all templates
4. Update graphics with something a bit more modern

The new style will see a new way to present data to visitors, but will retain the essential vBulletin look-and-feel, so that the new interface will still be familiar to experienced users. The HTML of the new style is almost complete, and work will soon begin on the new graphical elements.

And so for the question on everyone's lips: When?

At the moment, we are looking at a date in late November for the release of vBulletin 3 RC1. Next week, we hope to be able to give you a more precise date for the RC1 release. At this time we don't have a solid estimate for the vBulletin 3 Final release date, but after RC1 goes out we will be able to evaluate how much work still needs to be done to complete the product, and then we will be able to offer you a potential date for the final release. I will say though, that right now I am thinking that the final release will not be too far behind RC1.

Naeh ... I never noticed it before, actually. Thanks for letting me know, Nordgau. I can't fix it, however, as I don't have the .psd anymore.

I also never really noticed it for half a year now until yesterday. Someone must have had his finger for one second too long on the comma key..
