    They are outdated, it's about time we got some fresh graphics.

    You need news before you can ask someone to change the graphics. The people responsible for keeping that stuff up to date do it in their spare time so you can't blame them for a lack of content.

    Fuck it, I'll do it. Someone give me permission to change the banners. I do graphic design as a side project, like mapping.

    Exactly. And the fact that we're still announcing the last 72 hours says something.

    Yeah, it would be nice, as one of the few in the small demographics of people that looks at the main page, I would like to see some new stuff....

    Not saying that this is a reason or anything for what does or doesn't go on the ticker, but from what we saw a while ago... not many people actually looked at the front page, if they were recurring members.

    This may have changed in the past few years, but I just wanted to point that out, for people to consider.

    Yeah, personally I just go straight to the forums, but I think it'd be nice for first time visitors to see what's currently going on in the community instead of things that have already passed.

    MVA is getting a banner on the 10th, 72hr is getting one on the 17th (so it doesn't knock MVA off too fast)

    Are you going to use the banner I designed? Because that would be hella.
