My new Banner

Postby Legolas » Sun Jan 16, 2005 1:52 pm

I hope you guys like it. As always, Comments and Suggestion are always welcome :) .

Enjoy,

The Link to my website can be found in my profile, but I'm not sure how much good it will do. The main page to my site is still down, because I am 'still' in the process of giving the entire site a -Makeover- . I hope to have it open again by my birthday (February 10), sort of like a present to my fans (heh like I had any...) and myself.

BTW, thanks for the awesome comments 8) .

Now that is a cool header, though I shudder at all the modified LEGO! :wink: :roll:

It's a bit hard to read because it is too dark, but my moniter settings are screwy anyway. :oops:

I look forward to you website!

Thanks guys :) .

Your enthusiasm in my site is just the thing I needed to get my butt in gear, and finish updating it. Stay tuned for that February opening, some of you may even be astonished :wink: .

Nathan - Yea even my brother told me the font was a little hard to see, does this look better ?

Image

I've also reduced it in size by like 20%, a few of the non-LEGO forums I visit complained about it being too big and just plain annoying....What a bunch of haters :roll: .

EDIT/offtopic: I just noticed Nathan, that you live in Eureka. My brother lives up there, and I lived there about 8 years ago. Is the Bay Shore Mall a good place to find LEGOs ?

I didn't notice that at first, but I can see where he's coming from - the revised version looks much better ~

Hey, sorry I took so long to replied...I rarely visit this forum...

I've never really found any good place in Eureka (or surrounding towns for that matter) to get LEGO. Only the KB Toys in the Bayshore Mall has some sales once in a while, but they are few and far between. I've had little luck with yard sales too...all this wet weather usually terminates yard sales. :?

The best place I went to get LEGO was near Saint Cloud, Minnesota, when I was there on my dad's sabbatical! A Pick-A-Brick was an hour south and there were yard sales aplenty, not to mention a local LEGO group.

/On topic: Personally, I like the bigger banner better :wink:

Hey Joey, I just saw this thread and your banner is awesome. I love the customes and the graphics you added. I haven't read your story before but I am heading there now. Great Job.
