    That is true Tuckerd I like #3 for the way the words Firearms Discussion Board stand out. It lets people know right away what we are about. I seldom take the time to read these things and the first thing to catch the eye is what people will focus in on.

    charlie i have to talk it over with tac ,i like the www.com on there ,so if people can't find the link they will remember to .com address

    i like #5 but with #3's font ,#3 just needs to be shadowed a little more ,it is just a matter of contrast

    i can't take all the credit my brother has tought me most everything i know about puters ,he has a stack of software from he!! ,and is very good ,inside and out

    oh! i like the flag on #1 the best

    GP,

    I'm undecided as of yet however, should one of
    the banners with the forum descriptions be the
    one we go with you can add in the B/S/T with
    it, GSA already has another sites banner
    in the rotation that is a firearms dealer as stated
    so in that persons(company's)banner.

    B/S/T is a prime attention getter!

    Exellent job GP!

    I like the first one even though it's a little busy at the bottom. I also like #5 but the flag behind the words makes it hard to read. Maybe in red?

    #1 the flag is very blurred and Firearms Discussion Forum is way to small. I would go with #1 if you can make it to look like #3 or #5.

    nice banners,but i know for starters it doesnt matter what i think of them. but for what it is worth, i dont care for any of them.
    text is great,but the rest needs work. this is a good board and i like it alot.
    i know some people who could make one for this bb,and it would be awsome.

    i also know of a site that makes free one's that look better.

    i hope you all dont get mad at me for saying so, if you have a choice from reg gif are animated gif banner,which one would you like to have?

    well thats the hillbilly texan 2cent worth what do i know

    Yes you do have a say texasgunman. This board belongs to all of us and we all need to speak up and say what we think.

    I prefer regular over non animated. You are more than welcome to make one up and show everyone. Or tell us what you think would be best.

    Thank you Warpig883 i hade some custom made banners made for my bb, and they looked great, so befor using them i wanted to ask members what they thought,they liked the new banners,but to my suprise they liked they old one,its like the one in my signature but on a larger scale.
    they said the old banner hade a message to it,american eagle.
    and that banner was free, kinda like a kid,buy them a toy and they much rather play with the box it came in. i could have saved money i just recently got another bb,its .com made by vbuletin,tech-men are working on it now, im trying to pick new banners,themes ect. lot of work. my ezboard will remain the same its paid up for six mths and i have $102 in community chest,none refundable,so we'll keep the bb for awhile.
    sorry fella's got things on my mind and just rattling away.

    i have a friend who makes banners and gif's,she is real good at it and stays very busy, esspecially it being holidays.

    i will have her make this board a banner as a gift, so you seem to want a non animated banner, same text thats on the sample ones? let me know what all you want on banner,also if you have a theme general idea of what you all want ok? i will be back checking on this post,befor i ask her to make it ok?

    meanwhile you folks have a wonderful and Merry Christmas

    I would vote for #4 just because of the way it "jumps" out at you.

    However I would make the following changes:

    1. Remove the yellow/gold color from THE FIREARMS FORUM and make it white with no shadow.

    2. Remove the shadow from the wording in the arrows and make it bold face red.

    You now have a three color rather than a four color.

    GPostal, Keep up the good work. Your banners look good. Sometimes simple is better. You can always improve on something, but is it always necessary? Thanks Dan.
