Yes, me and the winner (through discussion) will make a new style that match with the winning banner, so free to use any colour scheme you want. The style name will be decided by the winner. Wink

P.S. You might need to make button for the new style as well, if you are the winner Tongue

That paw is stolen from Ai's Taiwan official site, if you notice, in the Japanese site they use balloon instead of the paw. Anyway, the paw is part of the whole style, if you select a new style, you get to see different post icon, different new topic icon, etc. Those are the icons that need to be changed for a new style.

It's okay if the winner doesn't know how to make them. The main thing here is the banner, if you win, I can help you with that. Wink

Haha, you're actually the first one who has submitted the entry for the contest, congratulations! Boogie btw, if you come out with a better design later on and decided to update the current submission, just gimme a note. Wink

I'm still looking for more entries here! I think I gonna send out a mass email announcing the banner contest and the memberlist cleaning again. Kinda off-topic, but we would have around 940 members by now if I didn't clean up those useless account. Some people likes to register again and again with some obsolete email. Then there's people who register just to download stuff from the forum. No

Which rules has limited your creativity? If you're refering to the "not-so-busy" recommendation, I would say that winning banner will be used as banner for a new style, and ultra busy banner won't fit with the forum style.

Personally I think it's okay. It's up to you what banner you wanna submit and what the poll result shows. If people like your banner, so be it, and we will have it as the banner for new style even if it doesn't fit with the forum layout.

I don't think you're going to submit those banner you've shown here, right? Do remember, all submission should be anonymous to voters, so don't show it elsewhere before the contest ended.

P.S. Every single bit of the banner you submit should be made by you, including background, text everything! (except Ai-chin pic, of course) If you used someone else artwork as your background, you will be disqualified. (I noticed the background you used in your current banner is took from someone's abstract artwork?)
