Banner Design Competition
 
Hey I was thinking if we end up using this format for the site for a while, or if we go back to the old format, we could have a competition to design a new banner for the top of the page. Other Subaru sites I'm on have done this in the past with great success. Should we give it a try?

Great idea!
I did some research and this is what I found.
The forum banner/logo must be smaller than 760 pixels wide. Many people suggested around 500.
The height is variable say in the 50 to 150 range.
Gif or jpeg formats will both work.

Edit:
Now with some more experience I think we should shoot for 640 to 800 x 120 to 150 pixels
The file size should be small otherwise the forum will load slow.

Sounds like a great idea. I'll have a go & see what I can come up with.

Very nice banners so far! Is there a way we can make the text stand out a little better? Maybe use white text or some sort of shading/highlighting to separate it from the background images more?

Also make them a little bigger if you can. Shoot for something like 500 pixels wide x 100 to 150 pixels tall.

Is this better ? I made the text darker & faded the pics a little.
