Hey guys.

I know i know, im retired, yet i come back to ask for something. Lol.
I had an idea that im sure everyone would love to hear. I asked zup about the idea and he said he wanted to hear the peoples voice on this.

So here it is. Yall know this banner right?





Hopefully yall do, if not, check the top of the website :P lol. My idea is to get the people of dogfight involved with dogfight alittle more than just financial. I propose having a banner contest held on the last week of the month, and on the first week, hold a vote on what banner entry will represent dogfight for the next 2 months. If the idea is liked, im sure zup will tweek the numbers a bit, and thats fine by me, im just giving the idea :D.

Now just to keep the banners easily judgable, i suggested to zup that we have a theme to go with for those 2 months. Maybe a plane from df, or ww1, or a particular pilot from ww1, etc etc. Just some examples to help zup with.

Another thing i suggested to him was to have a set group of people be the judges instead of having everyone vote, because from what i seen from the last poll, several people tried to cheat numbers by creating multiple accounts. And thats just cheap, in my opinion. So my idea to keep the playing field fair, having a moderator from each squad "represent" their squads vote, or have said moderator make their own choice. Just another idea for zup and everyone here to play with and think about. If the vote is accounted by the whole squad system (meaning the mod counts the votes for has squad, and lays the squad vote for whichever banner was most popular by that squad), or just by the thought of just 1 mod from said squad.

Not sure how this idea will go, but i think zup likes it, but he wants yalls opinions as well, so please help zup and I out.

Yay or nay on this idea?

YES is my vote. Think we could see some awesome art creations. Maybe a free subscription to winner.
ONE vote for each IP address. Echoboom should have the technology to stop multiple voting.

Look below for the next banner to represent this awesome game.

See how the plane has the throttle fully open to climb over the mountain? I believe this would bring people to the game :whistle:

Great idea. Only one member of each squad as voters is a great idea too - for a couple of reasons. It gives more incentive to those in squads, as they would have a voice, and it will keep part of the drama down - some.

Fun!

Nice Idea.. as for the voting, let it be individual as not everyone is in a squadron.

And have zuperman give the particulars. i.e. size & composition & format etc...

I think it's a great idea just maybe the voting has to come from known players who are common on the forum that makes it individual and keeps teh cheats away since very few if any carry on a whole double forum life...It's on the forum so if they are not part why would they want to vote?

There has never really been a contest, but if there were mom would be the undisputed champion, mom has banners. Period.

Would anyone else like to voice their opinion? I honestly fogured this idea would get a lot more attention than this... seeing as there are so many talented artist here

If this is all that like this idea then zup probably wont consider doing this.

I think it's a great idea, I have seen many banners that make me think WOW. I have made a few "simple" banners, nothing that would compare to the things you and Whiplash or Foust make. I'm always eager to see what you guys come up with.

Sounds like fun. I'd be willing to help anyone that needs advice, if they want to give it a go.

Making a banner involves unavoidably puting your "signature" on its design.

So, the banner-maker needs to fit the design of the game itself, to keep the visual identity of the game. So, I believe this task (oficial DF banner making) is only achievable by the Echoboom design team. Its not something we should interfere, IMHO.

OK, perhaps some roughs and sketches, but the final art need to be made by the designer guy from Echoboom HQ. Just saying...

Edit: And nice to see you around, Kes.

I'm looking at it as experience and fun. I'll even sign a disclaimer. I don't want anything. The idea sounds like fun. It doesn't have to be Echoboom sanctioned. Just make it clear that it's just a way to show off your talent IF you choose to participate. The only thing we'd need permission for is to use any copyrighted artwork or Logo. I think it can all be worked out to be a fun experience.

I do have a better version of that plane saved. Im no good with that kinda stuff but I guess when you shrink it then blow it back up it gets all pixelated.
