Looks really good. The colour scheme helps give the board a distinct identity. I like the red colour when you scroll over links, too. It goes well with the quote and edit buttons.

Perhaps you could incorporate the black from the banner into another element? Maybe make the headers ("Welcome to Bond and Beyond," "Bond," "Beyond" etc.) black w/ white text. That would probably look sharp.

I can live with the colour scheme. Easy on the eyes. It kinda reminds of the menu background in GE64.
Agreed. On that note...

Running with the GE64 menu idea, perhaps a manila folder pattern? Here's a few you could try:







These smaller tiles also have the advantage of loading way faster than a wallpaper. =)

I adjusted the text on the banner:

Did a bit of tweaking too...preferred the original shades of blue background naturally but haven't changed the letter colouring...



or with a bit of twinkle to it...

I like it. Are we going to run with that or has the banner been settled upon?

The white background's a bit too bright.

I centered the text on this one, too. I think it just looks a bit better that way.

I'm not entirely certain where the orange sherbert tone on the text is coming from... gold might do better.

The smoky, glowing "Skyfall" is a little, uhh... random, too. I prefer a cleaner look. Just my thoughts!

Banner v0.07



Perhaps a 50th anniversary theme might make good wallpaper :scratch:

I'm not a fan of the orange either.

The color in the previous version worked better.

Yes! 50th anniversary if possible. But could we include: at least one image of each Bond, a few of the popular Bond girls (Honey, Pussy, Natalya?) the DB5, an explosion/smoke/silhouette girls, etc?

A tad busy, I think. Shrink the Golden Girl dramatically?

I'm afraid I don't really like that one. The forum name is difficult to read and seems at odds with the SKYFALL logo. And the extra photo of Craig forces it all into an awkward space.

I don't mind the idea of a custom forum logo in the image. I just think the font you used made it a little unreadable. If you got rid of Craig and the bullet hole and instead made the forum-and-film logo bigger, it would look much better. Right now, it feels like you're trying to cram as much as posssible into the banner when it works just fine the way it is.

Or, get rid of the extra Craig, keep the bullethole, and improve the BaB font.

I still think the orange text on the banner needs to be changed. Reverting it to the previous banner would be satisfactory and it'd match better with the overall theme of the forum.

I was gonna say, it looks a little too Halloween themed.

I guess we'd need AgentJamesBond007's permission from Mi6? Or not, considering he doesn't own any of that image, either. laugh
