Well, I agree that the main site's banner and the forum's banner should be different. Each should have a different feel to it (it actually does now, but it can be taken much further). The main banner should be strictly game-related...and best to have current or next-gen characters to make it up-to-date. But the forums banner should be much creative.

A forum banner focusing on the current members (and more specifically, their current avatars) is going to get old quick (since people change their avatars regularly) and newcomers will feel like the forums are too much of an in-crowd to try to get involved with.

With that said, I have a few ideas that I might put into motion.

Do we have a clean version of our logo laying around? It would really help

that's true,newcomers will always feel overshadowed by us long time members.
and then if it was done on our av's someone is going to be left out, and mark my words they will come running and screaming bloody murder with the rest of the villagers with torches and pitch forks.

I was thinking the exact opposite, I was making up a banner with the old "pixilated" characters and put the words "Magicbox" in system font. The theme color was going to be either green and black or red and black, but I'll need to do some improvements. I say we just make a banner about me and get it over with it, you all know you want one of me, CONFESS!!

Oh. Should I get rid of the YA RLY? Also Justin seems to be a little protruding.

There are only two avatars that are hard to see. Nem's and mine.

I'm also thinking about redoing Drunken's avatar.
the problem with that is that avatars change- i wanted to do it but i thought nahhh.

I think that with the changing of the Avatars, newcomers wont know who is thats up there and therefore wont be much of an issue. I like the way it represents a community. You know... what do a skelleton, a turnip and a cute girl have in common? These crazy forums I like the way that it represents a group od different ppl all together in one place. Maybe we should lose the owl (wich will get old once the owl fetish is no longer "in") and get more members avatars up there. Also the magicbox logo should be in the center (besides... its blocking the view of my avatar )

First you fail to implement my insane Lunar idea, then you forget my insanely sweet Ghaleon AVATAR!!!!!!!

Ohwell, still looks hella good to me... with room for improvement
