Make Grey a good looking one and you'll get one too.
You can design it yourself, or I'll make one for you.

it needs to be between 10px to 30px high and 100xp to 155px wide.
The banner can be animated.

I'm not making Grey a banner. What is wrong with Grey's current banner? Seems a pretty good banner to me.
I'd rather fix these:

i don't like that it has my name on it because my name is already above it. it seems a li'l redundant.

everything important is getting worked on, this is just some minor bullshit that i don't wanna waste zoul's time with, but I can't do anything of worth.

What sort of title would you think worthy of yourself, Grey?

Also, still wondering how big the animation size can be, KB-wise.

I'd have the world cruelest handicap because seriously who here even knows how to make gifs like these besides of me and a two or three guys? Grey just wants the name off, that's why i made it.

Seriously though, gif making isn't that hard. You make a picture, then you make another picture that changed in some way, the google for a program to put those pictures together. DONE.

Unfortunately this is the step some people are having trouble with. As surprising as it is, we don't have many artists/designers/people who know this.

you still have to worry about how the transitions between the frames look. it may be simple to make a gif but it's not simple to make a good gif.

Oh well there are tools for aiding that, the point being not going straight for photoshop.
I'd prefer to be fucked sideways than use photoshop for pixel art or gifs. It's good yes, but not the fastest or easiest to use option.

Ah, right, I somehow took it to mean the technicality of the gif itself was the problem.


Closer to real entry. Might do more with it if the concept has any bearing to it.

It says 10 to 30 in height at the top of the page... But size isn't final anyway... Aaaand I thought mine was 30, but I guess not.

The first is the Logo and Ranks PSD files.
There's nothing special in thm really other than the size which you will have to work with.
If you do not have Photoshop, the sizes are:
Logo 800 px x 300 px
Ranks 155 px x 20 px

Current Ranks:
BR - Image
Admin - Image
Moderator - Image
Grey - Image
Gold Member - Image
Anyway just saying, 20px is the most you can go without making it look intrusive or too llamative.

I don't disagree. It's probably more likely Zoul got it wrong at the top than in your quote too.

I kinda want to make a GIF with a joint slowly burning up and revealing the English flag underneath it

But I'm having trouble finding a proper picture of a joint from the side >.<
