I decided to take a shot at this whole banner thing too. Obviously I don't have all the info so I put some placeholders in for the details. Then again it would be pretty funny if they advertised it like that "ZELDA MARATHON!.... whenever!" _awesome_

Ninboy's is looking pretty awesome though, so I'll understand if they use that instead.

I really like this one, but you should add the number of games being played too...

I made four mediocre banners for the Zelda Marathon...

Woah, that really awesome! I wouldn't have it any other way than that. The color's pretty nice, I just love it. :) Also, Swift, your 4 banners are nice, too.

Thanks!
Mine aren't exactly banners, they're just for people to use as sigs during the Legend of Zelda Marathon.

Hm... I might load up Photoshop on this machine soon(BSOD a couple days ago, redid OS) and give it a go.

Since I got Photoshop, too, I think Ill take a try as well. I'll see what I come up with and post it here as soon as possible.

We love your banner! I temporarily photoshopped your banner to put it on our website, but as soon as you add the time, date, and charity, we will re upload your version. Also, the banner size for the website will need to be 760x158

Here's the banner I made last night, I hope it's not that bad. I'm new to photoshop, and I may have a different kind of version. I was hoping I can use it to promote the marathon. Well, here it is.

Great, I see it up there. To see it yourself reload any page of the forum or main site. The reload button should work, but if it doesn't hold down Shift at the same time in Firefox.

I really liked that banner right when I first saw it. The colours especially; they are similar to those in my banner, the full image I cropped it from anyway.

So many other good banners though, already. We may need to put in a random cycle again.

Awesome thanks! That one was for the website :) Could you make it for the forum now? 800x120.

Here are the resolutions for anyone else who wants to make one.

Website - 760x158
Forum - 800x120

I would prefer the format PNG...if you can make it PNG-8 (if you use photoshop) with 256 colors, 0% dither. It cuts the filesize from a jpg pretty much in half. If you can't just save it as a jpg and i can convert it.

I really liked the current banner the first time I saw it as well. In the likely event of another random cycle, I may go for banner number two soon. This time, it'll hopefully stay up! :D

We should have a Zelda video contest. A preview video we can make for places like YouTube, and Gametrailers to advertise the marathon in advance. The contest winner gets their video shown. All the Speedgamers have to do is supply some basic materials, and guidelines for the video.
