Seasonal Theme and Image Request

Postby neps » Tue Dec 02, 2003 9:12 pm

Hey All,

In keeping with our usual Holiday theme based design, I have added a Seasonal Theme to the board, which you can select it from the "Profile" section. It's a general snow flake based design, so it isn't religious specific but still gives feeling of the season to the board.

I wish to also change the logo of the board for at least the month of December, but I don't have the energy right now to do it. So I'm starting a little contest, and the winner will have their graphic displayed on the board. The only requirements that I ask is that you keep it somewhat to what it is, but you can change the color and winterize it to match the rest of the Theme.

You can either email me at webmaster@knightrideronline.com or post the image here so everyone can see. I will take everyones opinions under consideration, but will make the final decision.

Thanks!

Neil

I like the new theme neps! Very relaxing, anyhow... I will join, I like to make my own little logos, but here are my two questions...

1. What logo do we change, use the KRO logo that sites up at the top??

2. How do you post a pic off your hard drive?? Or does it have to be online??

Thanks neps and company... :)

This is the logo in question. You can't post off your hard drive, unless it is set up to be a web server. If you don't have a website access, you can email it to me at the above address and I'll put it online for everyone to see.

Thanks!

I think with green on it would look better.

He said to winterize it. So I made it black to reflect the lack of daylight hours we currently have. lol

Well the image file is a GIF, and as such is indexed to a limited color palette for quicker downloading. If you don't have a program that can convert from index color to RGB, your best bet would be to take a screen grab of the logo, and work from that.

These entries are amazing! No offense to Neil, but the original logo looks kind of "blah" now!
