Ah yes, I just found out that's where they put it. Yay!! :D

Anyone who knows how to can also take bits and pieces from the Illustrator file and work on them in Photoshop - the catch there is that they will have to manually position all the artwork. I don't know how carefully the banner-approvers are going to be monitoring where all the little notes and things are (or if they're all there), but I would hope people don't start rearranging parts of the logo on the sly. :(

Okay, so I guess this means I need to get cracking and make some banners. lol

Can we easily change the main page colour scheme to match?

the orange really clashes.

Some nice "Netscape" would probably be best.

maybe more blue.

Contrast is fine too :x

Once again grats, DriftRoot! Mainly for the coulour theme, it's much to my liking. With the last logo, I changed the colour pretty much, but now I guess my "My Banners" page will get pretty much blue :D

Kickass logo, probably the best looking one we've had since I've been on the site...and that's been about 5 and a half to 6 years. :up:

^_^ I went with the teal/blue because I thought the heavy black of the paint stroke was already going to make the logo quite prominent on the site. I didn't want to add yet another color on top of that which drew even more attention. As for why I didn't, therefore, go with orange, it looked weird and didn't work against the light orange background of the main page - parts of it literally disappeared and other parts were hard to see. ALSO...it turned into Halloween. Big time.

I saw one of the newly submitted banners used the logo as background art - it looks really cool!! I guess as long as the "AMV" is showing, that works. Great idea, whomever made that one! :D

I think he's stated before that he lurked for a long time before joining (For whatever reason)... Also, who cares and why did you have to point it out?

I did that once with the last logo. I was so afraid that it would get immediately rejected for not having it in the foreground. You can imagine my relief when it made it through to be judged by the public. :D

Anyway, I've been messing around with the logo in Photoshop and Illustrator, and holy spline-fest, Batman! That's quite the complex little Illustrator file. I have to say, I'm rather afraid to do much with the .ai file as it has so much going on in it. XD

Very well done, indeed. Now I'm even more impressed with it. :P
... yea ...

Thanks, although I don't know if it's impressive so much as messy. LOL This isn't the most complex AI file I've ever created, but it's definitely the most chaotic.

And hey, go nuts with it. Just don't accidentally turn off the opacity masks, though I'm not sure if anyone did do that - accidentally or otherwise - if that would be grounds for rejecting the logo in a banner. Save a backup copy, guess? :P

well i've got 3 banners uploaded with the new logo, 2 are pending vote, and the last is pending approval...

is it just me or are the banners taking forever to be voted upon :? i'll admit i've slacked and haven't made that many in a while, but i remember the voting taking no more than a day, sometimes even just a half day to be decided. and now i'm coming on expecting to them finished and there's still way off. gahh! :x

Just got back from Otakon and processed all banners pending approval (I don't normally do it, but the other admins are still at the con).
