Banner Update - Front Page Poll

Post by Clonecommando007 on Fri Jul 17, 2009 9:10 pm

Well as you can easily see, the Clone Army Builders Guild has had it's main banner changed. Just look at the top of your screen, it's there on every page of this site. Wink

I'd like to get some public reaction to this change. Do you like the banner better or worse than the old banner? Here's what the old banner and header used to look like, with a bit of size reduction:


Please vote in the poll and comment in this thread to drop me some extra feedback.

Thanks, and enjoy the new banner!

I prefer the new one. Looks kind of symbolic, if you get my meaning.

Honestly, I hate the new one. The bold letters mixed with the blurred letters make it seem n00bish IMHO. I don't like the old one much either, though, but if I had to pick one, it'd be the old. I think we need an epic banner, like FBTB's. Maybe and epic moment in the Clone Wars. Like one of the scenes from Rookies... If only we could convince Sial to make us one...

I'm all for that. If we can get some kind of epic MOC and have a good photographer shoot us a good scene that will represent the Guild on each page of our site, I'd be happy to at least make a temporary change to that.

So, what scene do you think? I honestly think it should be from Rookies. Maybe the scene where they make their stand against the first wave of droids?

Here's what my fruitful imagination came up with:

There's a clone, potentially a Wuzzie custom commando of some sort, hiding behind a wall, and inside the room he's observing is a glass case, inside of which is a cabbage. Several of Wat Tambor's species may be walking around to add to the effect, with droids of all kinds guarding it.

I like that we have new ones once in awhile but I'd like to the current one a little thinner.

THats a good idea, 80-0.

This is what I say. We let everyone share their ideas, CC and the staff will pick which ones they like best, and then the Guildies vote on which of the chosen ideas they like best. Then we let someone like Revo, DY, or Rook make the idea, photograph it from multiple angles. Then we vote on which angle we like best, and then we let Sial or Firespray do the editing.

Whatever the idea may be, it has to focus on a cabbage in some way, whether it's an ultra-secret CIS project or anything else.

I really can't think of any other ideas, though.

And regarding banners, the idea of the current one is OK, but regarding the execution, I agree with PD, and I'd have to prefer the old one.

I agree. That would look so cool. Maybe Wuzzy could even make a CABG commando...

How would you change the execution of the current one to make it better 80-0?

Oh, you know, I didn't look at it until just now and I noticed someone(you?) fixed those white lines. Razz

So the only thing remaining is the font, and that blaster pistol on the left.

The text and the pistol does still bother me. A bit of simple editing should take care of the pistol if someone wants to work on that, and if someone wants to fix the text that'd be great too.

Like Rook said, if it was thinner, that'd be great.

Hey CC I can make a MOC if someone could add the flames ect to it. I was thinking maybe a clone diving through the air with a explosion behind it. What do you think?


Otherwise I like this one.

OK, with no focus on the cabbage how will that represent us? Just another kiddy idea of BOOM BOOM BIG EXPLOSIONS WOOOW? Razz

I mean the idea is well-intended but in my opinion doesn't represent us well... at all.

Well who ever edits it could edit a cabbage into it. And we could make it ironic and leave someone like obi wan in the flames.. just and idea though.

AWW DID I REALLY? Sad





Get over it. Razz



Oh well, what if I made something on my BRAND NEW 48x48 LARGE GREY BASEPLATE?

My dad finally made it to the Lego store and got it. Hooray for late birthday presents.

Only problem is, I don't have a cabbage.

I like the new one but you should put some of the best MOCs on CABG on the banner too. Wink

The same way FBTB's banner represents them without a Bothan.

Anyway, if we're going to do a scene, it needs some serious macro shit going on. So whoever does it needs to know one end of his camera from the other, or it'll look like buttered arse.
