Hello... infidels Very Happy
as you may already know from guildchat or simply noticed it here, we need a nice header for our forum and I was asked to write things down.

Let's keep it nice and short Smile
1. The header should be made of ingame screenshot(s)
2. No player(s) on the picture; only mobs and scenery
3. Ideal resolution is 700x200 pixels, otherwise it could interfere with the forum layout
4. Graphical effects,... are allowed
5. Multiple pictures from one contestant are possible.

At some point DutchGirl will stop this contest (probably around end of februari 2010) and a poll will be made, so that we all can vote for the best one Smile
The winner will get a nice mount, but that should be considered as a subject to change by now Wink

Please place all you pictures, questions,... here in this topic.
(if you cannot use forum attachments, use some imagehost and paste a link instead.)

TY AK ^^
As for the name.. I'll try to make some variations for this one.
..and it reminds me we don't have a guild emblem yet. Not that PW MS allows it for the time being, but that doesn't mean we can't have one Wink

Screenshots are taken by pressing PrintScreen key or by pressing F9. They are located in "<game directory>\element\screenshots".

As for the design: I used the original here (i_logo.png) as a template and created a top layer from it and making the default background color transparent. Then I pasted (and sometimes resized a bit) the selected screenshot and positioned it. Then I added a gradient layer mask to the screenshot layer, which made the edges fade to full transparency.

..but there are countless other ways to do that or something even nicer than I did. I just lack the imagination - that's the reason why it's so simple. And the reason why the heck I didn't create a written logo and emblem to my liking yet. Razz

I'm sorry it took longer than anticipated, but I decided I can't figure out anything else better than that on my own.

As for the forum header, I picked your favourite three (No 5, 6 and 8 ) and added a guild name. I tried to make the name layout fit the image theme.
Here you go:
5.

-
6.

-
8.

-

..and also I said I'll _try_ to make some guild emblems. There is a pesky restriction which made it kinda hard - it has to be 16x16px image (.jpg or .gif), so you don't have much space to work with
See for yourselves..
1.

-
2.

-
3.

-
4.

-
5.

-
6.

-
7.

-
8.

-
9.

-

Any comments and ideas are appriciated.

btw, am I really the only one trying that? Come on guys, I know you can do better than me
..and of course I'd like some more feedback on those three headers.. I don't think they are perfect, so any ideas are welcome.

DutchGirl: if noone will respond then say the word and I'll make a poll, so guildies can vote and we can then choose the most popular one.

brettonia: well that's what I was talking about.. it's really hard to make something nice fit in so small resolution and still be recognisable
