    New!New!New!

    I think it's about time we got some new banners for AO, what about you guys? We haven't had a big contest in a long time and AO really needs to be spiced up, considering how dead it's been recently.

    Of course it's natural that things slow down but damn, this is the slowest I've ever seen the place my whole time being here.. not to nag or anything, but is there an ETA on when the gallery will be back up? That's one of the major reasons why I don't come here very often anymore and it's nearly my favorite part about the site :c

    the lovely members being number xD

    We had a contest a while ago, but very few of the entries followed the requirements for the contest.

    Then the site got hacked multiple times. Something we are still recovering from well over a year later.

    We got bigger problems on our plates at the moment right now then dealing with a minor cosmetic feature.

    When you put it that way you make it sound like I don't care about the site's well being xD

    If I could help, I would, though I don't even know what's wrong.. and I was simply trying to inspire the community away from endless journal entries and stagnation. Maybe I should start watching more anime that way I could participate in more of the discussions however, I'm still bawling over the recent decline in graphic talent.

    :c

    more guilt.

    I know this isn't my place to suggest this but I would like to request.

    Why not build a graphics team on AO? The team would have the right knowledge of vB skinning/CSS so they could work on it for the admins and mods who are going through this tough situation.

    This could help spice up the forum to build up the community.

    THE RULES!

    I'm on my grind in search to find whats on my mind, its one of a kind!

    Another anime forum I used to use did that and it seemed to work really well. I like it when people get creative. WOuld you do like a voting process and that banner would stay up for a certain amount of time before the next?

    Do you think AO has enough dedicated shoppers to have a decent graphics team? I'm down but I don't have access to PS everyday..

    Well its not a matter of numbers its just motivation plus a small team so I think we have plenty.

    Flawed when your not around Photoshop maybe you can start learning GIMP as a secondary program.

    I second Violent's opinion. Even I don't rely on Photoshop for that much except for lineart coloring, wallpapers, signatures and re-edits. Which is why GIMP's portable version when I do leave my home computer just as efficient as Photoshop without some features.

    And about the banners contest, Hassun said we would a potential amount of members willing to compete.

    How about everyone who's interested posts here so we can gauge the playing field.
    Plus Trunks also had this to say:

    So chances are your gonna have to purpose this to the admins for approval and hope they throw us a contest to enter.
