    OK here we go, I know some of you have already come up with some thoughts on replacing the forum graphics at the top of the templates. The idea is to make it say maybe the site name(ooh!), and have some content that pertains to, well the content of the site. I am not a graphics person, more like I suck, so I am asking for help from the community to come up with some graphics for the four forum templates(can scroll through on the bottom left or in your profile).

    Artakus:
    Need a new header graphic
    Size: about 30KB
    width:662px
    height:105px
    Download: since was purchased, need to check license before allowing download

    Oceanzero:
    Need a new header graphic, locate top left
    Size: about 10KB
    width:237px
    height:128px
    Download: http://www.forumtemplates.com/download.php?tid=55

    Filux:
    Need a new header graphic, locate top left
    Size: about 10KB
    width:199px
    height:104px
    Download: http://www.forumtemplates.com/download.php?tid=63

    Filux2:
    Need a new header graphic, locate top left
    Size: about 10KB
    width:216px
    height:90px
    Download: http://www.forumtemplates.com/download.php?tid=64

    For Oceanzero, Filux, and Filux2 you may design a completely new header if you want(bonus points), maintain same color scheme. Please let me know if you need more psd files or info on the template.

    Attached are the PSD files for these templates, now filux and filux2 have a funky logo, and oceanzero, has the blue fade, which I think the psd files will help with. Please do not hesitate to ask questions, which I probably won't be able to answer, but do try :D. Ok now some rules to the contest:
    Any member can submit logos
    Submitted logos, must be attached no hosting remotely
    No limit on the number of submitted logos
    Winners determined by staff
    Will last till May 19, 2006
    Rules may change

    Prizes(Think gift certificates Amazon):
    Artakus - TBA
    Oceanzero - TBA
    Filux - TBA
    Filux2 - TBA

    ENDING FIRDAY JUNE 2nd

    I know I volunteered to help out with this, and have not presented anything at all... I do fine with photo editting, but the graphic arts part, well, I basically suck at that. Here was the best I came up with. I know that there are quite a few of you out there that are way better at the graphics stuff. So please, kick my *** in the site graphics. Go ahead, make my day! ;)

    Now I liked the one Tiger did with the P-38, but the name needs to stand out a bit more I think, but dam you guys have more talent than I have with such things, I wish I was as good as you guys.

    Great work guys.

    just been messing around for a bit, none are anything special and some are a bit blured but there's only so much you can do with 216x90 pixels, these are for Filux 2 btw, hence the vile green :lol: ............

    I do, but I don't have in flight that are worth a damn. Our Zero is in Texas for the next year or so and left just before my new camera arrived. I could try one of the ground shots though.

    I will also be seeing the A6M5 in 19 more days and will definitely being getting aerial shots of that one!
