    New Headers

    So after the passing of Satoru Iwata this week we had a discussion and the banner to the website was changed. I know this is something that was hardly ever done since I have been here but I had barely given it much thought. Trying to gauge the reaction to the community, it seemed to be something that people would like to have changed more frequently.

    I saw a suggestion that said we should maybe look into changing it every time there is a new game released. First Party I think. Phases said he had no issues changing it regularly.

    Now, I know we have a few people around here who are good with Photoshop/Gimp or whatever your choice of software is. If you feel like it is something you'd like to be involved in, make one and post it up here. If we have several banners going at the same time, we can call a vote on which one should be posted in. I'm sure eventually everyone who wants to, will get a chance to put theirs up.

    If no one shows any interest, we can leave it as is or change it on occasion. Just a suggestion and I think it could be something that could be fun to work at. I know we used to post game cover concept art and it was always really fun.

    Just for Ray!

    First off, thank you Phases and whomever created that banner. It's very tasteful. I don't see the need to change the banner all that often, but what if it referenced not only new games, but older games as well? Or even Eshop games? I say this because we've had quite a few new members lately and it's a nice reminder of some games that maybe didn't recieve the attention they probably deserved. Something like MK8 pretty much sells itself, but why not show some love for Guacamelee or Steamworld Dig? Or Fast Racing Neo or NSLU?

    Just a thought.

    I have no issues with this at all. I'm just going by what was brought up before. The only things I'm sure that will apply will be no cursing or anything against the forums rules that you wouldn't normally do around here and it will of course have to be Nintendo related.

    Sure. But maybe posting a banner with ZombiU or LEGO City or whatever might be neat. I like to spread the word about games I enjoy so that others might enjoy them too. There have been a few threads here about Wii "forgotten gems." By bringing a broader awareness to new WIIU owners hopefully nobody feels that their WIIU is lacking in content.

    Even edgier games like Bayonetta, Devils Third, whatever could be presented in a tasteful, non offensive way, even if it's just the logo and a WIIU tag on the end. It would be a good way to get the word out on games people might not be aware of. Subject to moderator approval of course. I'm not actually sure how that would work, but it's an interesting idea.

    Sorry, I wasn't trying to say it has to be first party related. I'm just saying it should be on the console itself. Third party is fine.

    I'll get started right away on my "Nintendo Sucks!" banner.

    Seriously, this could be pretty cool. I vote we leave the Iwata one up for a couple of weeks before we change it out, though.

    I posted the image size in the other forum. I think it was 959 x 79 in Jpeg format if I remember. Outside of that small restriction, it will be creator's choice likely.

    Maybe we can set a fixed time for every banner, for example change it every 2 weeks, and if an anticipated game is gonna be released then change the banner the day the game comes out and leave it there for 2 more weeks. It doesn't have to be 2 weeks but you guys get the point.

    I always assumed the MK8 banner was an ad. So, this isn't the case? If we can change them, I think a Splatoon banner next would be most appropriate, then move on to the next new release, whenever that is.

    I saw that one again just recently. Maybe the best episode ever.

    So then no 21:9. That equals out to about 109:9, which is even way more awesome!!!

    It's actually 959 x 78 so it's closer to 110:9 which is even way way more awesome!

    I might try to get something rolling on Gimp sometime if I can remember how. I was never all that good at it anyway. Is there no interest for it? I see quite a few suggestions. Is it just that not many people have the skills?

    I think the Iwata header should be changed when July ends. But I'd say Super Mario Maker is too far off to replace it. I suggest Splatoon. It's getting constant updates and apparently August is going to see big expansions for the game. What do you guys think?
