Quote from: The Dog on November 21, 2021, 10:58:21 AMThink we need a clear mission statement.

That's fair. I'll put on my Creative Director's tweed flat cap then.

  • The most prominent feature should be the name of the site.
  • Doesn't necessarily have to include the ".co.uk", but it also couldn't hurt.
  • Probably best to stick to the colour palette established by the new theme.
  • I don't think I'd want to say "no in-jokes", but if you're going to do that, don't just focus on one.
  • Should make it clear that this is at heart a comedy forum (so as much as I like Dr. Trouser's Commodore 64 inspired effort, it says "retro forum").
  • Using images of Cook and Morris is obvious, but there's also nothing wrong with that.

I know this isn't a mission statement really, but I'm tired. Maybe some inspiration from the past?

Ooh like that one. How does it look matching the sepia to white? Or is the mis-match nicer because it splits the text up?

QDRPHNC

Mismatched it for separation. Sepia is from the locked thread colour. This is just a suggestion though. Maybe it should be funny? Something like Madhair's... "debate, laquer, laughs"

Oooohhhh!

Edit: likely needs centered or for it to blend in? I dunno but it's up now for a test.

[Edit: just realized this is a lift of madhair's earlier gag so I've removed it. Not had a coffee yet. Must do better.]

Banner looks really good, interested to see what other people think.

Hmmm, leave it with me and I'll see if I can do a version that blends in better.

It's good but the faces look a bit squashed into the middle, might be wrong

They are a little, I'm going to tweak a bit further. Issue with this sort of thing is that if the eyes are broken up badly by the lettering, it can be very uncomfortable to look at.

Joe Pesci has let himself go. Or is it James Woods?

Thank you for the positive reception :)

Here's an updated version, and a mock-up for placement. Happy to add a subtitle or something to it if people who are much funnier than me can come up with something.

Nice one. Possible tagline: "Failed comedy writers who never got over Chris Morris" - B.C. Linehan

Jerzy Bondov

That banner seems to be very popular so for balance I would like to say it's fucking shit wank



I thought the first one was good, but this is even better.

Dr Rock

Can we have Madhair's banner sometimes?

Yeah, this one is great.

Why's Ken Dodd on the right?

Not sure how Barry would feel about officially enshining Linehan at the top of the page, but it could work presented just as a tagline, without the quotes and BC's name.

McChesney Duntz

"The world-renowned forum for failed comedy writers who never got over Chris Morris," mayhap?

I also like the even newer banner.

I noticed the current one is hosted on Imgur - should it not be hosted on the same server as CaB? Imgur might not be too chuffed about it if it finds out.

Edit: Ignore me - looks like it was fixed just before I posted!

Yeah I just linked directly as a test to save the hassle of copying it and uploading on my phone.
