how about this is my though even matter a contest should be hosted for a new banner and instead of just you throwing your opinion on us mjh why dont we let the whole board choose
lol what? When I made the banner it was based off of the micro markdown at the time and people gave me feedback on the general design. If someone wants to make a new one go ahead, just make sure it fits in with the menu bar or make a new one to go along with it. Personally I think those micros are still new enough to not need a new one but whatever, all I know is I'm not making it as I don't have photoshop and it was a bitch to get right the first time.
I also see what MJH is saying. Even if its an awesome banner, it needs to be roughly the same size, or else it will throw all the buttons and positioning off.
I really like the one Diablo made, any other likes of it? If a few others like it, I'll give it a try and see if it fits and works properly (thats what she said).
