Most of you probably know of Hidden Realms
through Kai or Brian's posting there, or through some of the posters from there that have come here. In the interest of trying to get some further new blood here and hopefully boost activity a little, I think applying to be an affiliate of that site would be a great boon for this forum. To do this, however, requires us to submit a small banner for them. Thus, I ask you for your submissions on this.
How this is going to work is any of you that might be interested in putting something together for this create your banner. The only requirement is it has to be 88x31, but I do ask that you try to focus on making it aesthetically pleasing, and somehow suggestive of this site. Sprite work'd probably not fit that well for this, mainly because I don't think it really represents the forum as it is now very well, though of course it's up to you all what you want to try out.
So then, go ahead and post what you come up with here, and after a while, I'll probably put up a poll or something to decide what you all want to go with. It would probably be helpful for those of you wanting to work with this to check out the Hidden Realms site and see what sorts of buttons other sites use for this; maybe you can get some inspiration there for a submission here. And people here less personally artistically inclined, folks that have ideas they don't think they could personally do justice for, go ahead and post those up here too.
