New Banner for our Honeycomb
« on: April 02, 2017, 02:19:13 PM »
Hello, dear members :)

The forum is nearing its 6th anniversary on April 11. Therefore, we have decided to replace the old 5-year anniversary banner. As decided by the Banner Contest, a new banner by Chipster-roo has been put on the forum.

Let's congratulate Chipster on the great banner and celebrate another year for the Honeycomb! :celebrate

Thank you Brighty, Claws :) And thank you both for the advice you provided when I was designing the banner.

It's really great that this forum is still online and active after six years :) And hopefully for many more :)

Have you considered making each day count - doing something meaningful each day - instead of letting the days and weeks and months and years fly into oblivion? --Bright Side

Congratulations, Chipster! :)
A really great banner, I immediately realized that something had to be new, until I glanced upwards.
What a new banner can change altogether. Great work, I like it a lot, Chipster!  :bigwig3

I would say, it's the best banner, this board had so far!

Adding a border on top and bottom (so it fits to the left and right ones) would be nice. And if you do such great work, I would have added a slight notice about the creator. Like "Created by Chipster-roo, mind-controlled by Silverweed's Claws, instructed by Darkling Nocturnal" :p :D

Edit: What I miss is a character design of the third season. Maybe remove female Blackberry or Pipkin and replace it with scarred Campion.

This is very nice Banner, well done friend Bright side.
In fact it would be very good idea to change the Banner every 4 months to vary.   :calohki
I love Watership Down!
 
Everything is fine =) (?)

Thank you Vesper, Darkling, Acacia and Hazel :) I'm glad you all like the banner :)

Darkling, you make a valid point about the borders, so I made an updated version; can someone please put it up? EDIT: thanks Claws :) I think it looks better now.



I don't mind not putting any credits text on the banner, but I guess we could add to this page: "Banner created by Chipster-roo with assistance from Bright Side, Darkling Nocturnal and Silverweed's Claws" or something like that.  Claws didn't perform any mind control though :p

As for adding season 3 Campion, I'm not sure...I don't think it would be fair to include one Blackberry but not the other, and I doubt removing Pipkin would provide enough room for a large rabbit like Campion.  Sorry.

Acacia, changing the banner on a regular basis is a good idea :)

You're kind, Chipster. I hardly did anything to create the banner :p But I'll look into adding the copyright to that page :)
