Please use this thread to pitch ideas for a new title for the website (the "Touhou-Project.com - Touhou Image Board / Chat / Video") as well as ideas/submissions for a new banner. We will pick/add any good ones. God knows that a lot of you are more artistically talented then I will ever be.

>ideas for a new banner

Something featuring one prominent representative character from each board?

Not entirely sure what is meant with the word 'title' in this context.
No. 1361
Title refers to what appears on the front page, the title bar on your browser window, and on the frame on the left hand side of the screen (if frames are enabled).
No. 1363
>Something featuring one prominent representative character from each board?

Yukari (/th/), Kaguya (/eientei/), Yuyuko(/border/), Reimu (/shrine/), Remi (/sdm/), Sanae (/youkai/), Okuu (/underground/), and Yumemi (/others/)?
No. 1376
Anyone who feels they can use an image editor to create the banner(s) please feel free to go ahead and make it. Ideas are fine and all, but actual products are also great(since yours truly has zero skill at this).

I'd also like to expand the scope of this, and invite anyone who can make a css to go ahead and feel free to make one for the site - we'll include it.
No. 1377

Something more general than that would be lovely. Group shots of the characters or scenery of the area.
No. 1378
I can make a CSS or two, but it might take me some time to work out all the bugs. Say, a week or so? Time is an important factor on my part, and I seem to have little of it during the week. So I'll be borrowing the Futaba CSS as a template to work from~

I could also make a banner or two, but I think it'd be best to let one of the drawfags have a go at it first.
No. 1379
Can't properly fuck with CSS unless you can see all the possible colors, like titles in non-OP posts.
Don't mind me.
No. 1380
Does the banner have to be the same size as the one we currently have? Some size limitations would be nice.
No. 1382
It can be larger, if that's what you're asking. As long as it looks good, and doesn't take up the whole page it should be alright. Don't worry about conforming to any one particular specification. I know it's a cop out to say this but, just use your own judgment on whats appropriate. And well, file size wise it shouldn't be something monstrous like over 1MB. Again, common sense.
No. 1385

The banners should all probably be the same size, so it looks nicer.
No. 1386
Well, since no one on IRC wants to try out the CSS I wrote, I'm going to post a link here.


Plug this into Stylish or whatever the equivalent for your browser is, and tell me what you think.
No. 1391

Aside from my text changing size, nothing really notable seemed to happen.
No. 1392
How odd. I changed just about all the colors, so only the font size changing when you preview it is pretty weird.
No. 1396
Doesn't work for me either.

Another odd thing is that it affect's other sites as well.

I'll give you an example.
No. 1399
Yeah, that shouldn't be fucking possible. Your Stylish must be fucking up, or something.
No. 1400

Yeah, I saved a copy of this thread and changed the HTML so it'd use my CSS. This should make previewing it a lot easier. I really should have just done this from the beginning.

No. 1402

You seem to have written it as a global style, so it is possible to affect other sites if you forget to set it affect this site only.

No, I wrote it as a "copied the CSS directly from Photon and edited it in Opera's source editor and then dumped the css file in pastebin."

Hmm. Looking at the image information stuff there, it appears that I'm going to have to tinker a bit before finalizing it. I'll probably either make it white, or else a brighter shade of gray. That's barely visible as it is.

Nuclear launch detected~ Also, let me know on IRC (or here) if there's any bugs in the Chernobyl CSS that need working out. I'll mess with it some more tomorrow and hopefully have it perfected before the evening.

Not the same person as the guy who did the other 3 before but well... I kinda based off his since I don't quite get what type of title and banner is ideal. Rather, I have no idea exactly what is actually wanted.

Just so you people know, I have experience making forum signatures and banners on occasion. Not that I'm trying to brag but just a little FYI.

Text could be a bit smaller and smoother on the edges but other than that it's alright.

Feel free to post some images you'd feel would suit the boards.
No. 1604
I would much prefer if all the boards banners used similar, if not same, fonts in them. Looks neater and a bit more uniform that way. But that's just me nagging pointlessly, nice work.
No. 1607
File 125252868181.jpg - (53.87KB , 546x109 , sdm.jpg ) [iqdb]

Keeping them uniform would be preferred. If we can agree on a style and upload images already at the dimensions we need then this would be much easier.

I think that images should be the same size as the old banner with a one pixel thick border the whole way around. The font shouldn't be too fancy or complex and it shouldn't take up too much of the space on the banner.
No. 1609

I wholeheartedly approve.

The centred /eientei/ doesn't seem to fit with the rest of the banner. Other than that it's a great candidate. Loving the overlapping ears and glow.

No. 1970
Banners had been set to rotate on their respective boards. Thanks to all that contributed. And feel free to make more if so inclined, especially for the boards still using the old logo. Or just a general logo to replace odd instances of the old one.

Same goes for any additional CSS, ideas for a motto or title for the site (both show up when you visit the front page). Good ideas are always welcome.
No. 1971
New banners are in place, but we still need a default one for the front page. /gensokyo/, /i/ and /tt/ also aren't covered yet.

We're using a rotating image script to show multiple banners on each board, so more submissions are always welcome.
No. 2178
Someone needs to make a vertical one so that if we decide to advertise on some other stie, we have the vertical stickposter style that's so popular to use as a banner ad.

Thanks. Sorry it took me a while to get to implementing, I can only blame my laziness. Do you have a preferred version? I'm going to add one of them to the rotation, but you might think one of them is better.

I actually like all of them, but if I have to choose, >>4162 will be my preference.

I'm allowed to make banners for the other sections, right? Because I have plans to make ones for /sdm/ and /shrine/.

Go ahead. We've enough banners I think but there's no problem adding more.
