Can we vote to change that hideous....

Postby Track Junky » 03 Dec 2011 17:44

looking futuristic 510 on the top of the website?(banner) I personally hate it. How about a stocker, a monthly members car, nothing is better than that thing lol!

I'm not yelling, just voicing my selfish opinion :mrgreen:

I don't think its hideous - but I wouldn't mind something more old school.

I agree with James, Hideous is not what I'd use to describe this a slick stylized rendering of a 510. But OOOH I will admit to feel bit conflicted here.

With the full ground kit, no bumpers, and the classic sonic body line all smoothed out, it does kinda look like a BMW 320i. On the flip side though, this has been the only "Realm" icon I've known sense coming here in Aug, 2010. In some way I equate this image to my reconnection with a beloved passion for my one and only dream car. And let's face it, I do like the color schema :mrgreen:

I think I've only seen three forum changes in my time here. Just hang in there change is the only constant thing.

IIRC when the Realm changed over to this forum format, the requirements for sizing of Banner images made it difficult to program using random pics like the previous system did.
Perhaps someone should ask Spencer if he can provide a set specs for Banner pics, then we could provide him with new pics for the Banner.

I'm liking the idea of random images. It would make it harder for my wife to tell when I'm on the sight. She can see that yellow car from across the living room. :shock: Busted! :lol: :lol: :lol:

Give me proper dimensions, minimum height/width, and maximum height/width and some sample images. Side profile shots would be best, IMHO.

I can photoshop them to whatever any of you guys want!

random rotating images or not, it is time for a (manual?) change.

The dimensions of the splash page image are 891X200p, or 12.375"X2.778" @72-dpi, This image includes the graphic on the far left to the rear bumper of the car. It is a jpg file in Bicubic format. It's formated this way to help smooth out gradients in the illustration. For pictures though, we'd want to use Bilinear formating. Not sure if we'd be able to keep the same banner graphics, but maybe we could produce a top layer mask with a 450 X 200p window you could just drop the pictures behind. That way the photo image would just need to be sized, dropped in, then flattened, and rename the file. What do you think?
