It's time for a new look!

We want to invite your submissions for a new banner to use for the site, both here on the forums and on the story board.

TO SUBMIT A BANNER: send your submission by PM to me, iheartGibbs, here on the forum. Or email your submission to me at barbara.iheartgibbs@gmail.com.

Requirements:

  • Must show all major characters including the current team (we need Ellie). As for Kate, Ziva, Jenny, Mike, Fornell, and others who are in smaller roles or no longer on the show, they can be there, but less prominently featured.
  • The site colors aren't changing. While the background isn't REQUIRED to be blue, it should coordinate.
  • Must have the words NFA Community. Can also have NCIS Fanfiction Addiction Community, since that's what NFA stands for.
  • The current banner is 800 X 240 pixels. The banners to vote on aren't required to be that size. You can make it wider to fit more in. But keep in mind that people with lower resolution screens may have to scroll side-side to see everything, which may make them not want to vote for your banner. It may not be an issue, since most screens these days can handle a lot more than that. :yes: I'll leave the dimensions up to each artist. If we feel one is a little too big or too small, we may ask for adjustment.
  • Anyone can submit banners to be voted on. You do not need to be an NFA full member. We'll put a note up on the Story Board, as well, so others can submit artwork.

You have until July 15THE END OF JULY AUGUST to submit banners! There is no limit to the number of banners you can submit, within reason*. All the submitted banners will be voted on my the entire membership, and the winning banner will become our new site banner. NOTE: staff may request small changes to the winning banner before posting.

*We say there is no limit to the number of banners, but use some common sense. It's fine to submit 2 banners that are very similar, but differ in font/coloring/wording. We do not want 6 or 8 different banners to vote on that are practically identical. Make sense? If you draft several, pick your top couple to officially submit. We hope to have several people participate.

Barbara, when I save the banner we currently have and open it in a graphics program, it says the size is 800 X 240. (pixels) I don't know if the new banner has to be exactly the same size, but that is the size of the old one.

I extended this to the end of the month. At this time, we only have submissions from two people. If you have skills at all, please throw your hat in the ring! I know you're working on Nepal relief art, but we really want a quality banner. (Not that our current submissions aren't quality. They're lovely. :yes: We just need MORE!)

Sorry, I have no art work type talents at all. I can't even draw a straight line without messing it up. Hope you get more submissions.

I can't use my usual photoshop program at the moment (I'm waiting some new lenses and can't do photo-heavy work because of migraines), so I want to submit my idea in the hopes someone else will be inspired to take it up. What about using images of all of the characters either reading on their computers, reading from files, or writing on either computer or by hand? I'm sure there's got to be a shot of everyone from the current main cast, other than maybe Palmer. (Ellie on the floor surrounded by papers would be hilarious!) And there should be something of Kate or Jenny in past eps as well.

I can't remember the episode, but I know there was one in one of the first few seasons where the team has to go through a huge set of boxes of files in the squadroom (Tony wasn't taking his turn if memory serves me) - that would be great for it too.

It appears the email address I supplied in the original post isn't working. I have updated it with another email.

barbara.iheartgibbs@gmail.com

If you submitted a banner or banners to me and didn't hear anything in response, PM me or send them again. Thanks!

I don't have Photoshop, either, Chelsea. :) I make do with a fairly simple program which you can't find anymore (unless you really dig deep enough through the web).
Got GIMP but I rarely even use it as I can't seem to find the time to learn how to use it. In my opinion it's more a generic for the expensive Photoshop.

Sometimes, the simpler free photo editing programs are all you need. GIMP is kind of a pain and hard to understand.

I'll see if I can come up with a decent banner before the end of the month.
