At long last we are opening our contest for banner images for the reunified Ponychan.
Everyone is invited to make some banner pictures for potential addition to the site. I will be putting up some prizes for the best of them that I hope you'll find interesting. The prize pool is pictured here. The top two new banners will get their choice of any of these prizes, plus an additional one I'll pick. (If there's a conflict between what each person wants, I'll probably have them flip for it~).
In addition, I'll be posting the original banners mlpchan had; some of them are usable as-they-are, as some were board-specific. I'll ask the staff to add those as-is. Some are really great, and only need a minor revision to work for the new site. If someone would like to take up the task of editing them to reflect the Ponychan name, I'll send something their way as well!
The guidelines for the banners are as such: banners should be 600x150 and less than 75KiB. (Not all of the previous ones fit these specifications, so if you're planning on fixing up the old ones, remember to make them work with those guidelines.) The banners, both old and new, must be sfw.
I will give 2-3 weeks, I think, for banner submission. I can't really give a hard cap for a deadline, since I don't know how many we'll get submitted and how quickly people will submit them. At any rate, I hope you guys have fun creating some banners for the fresh new start of the site, and I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Good luck, and I hope to be sending something to you!
