Any chance of something fresh? I noticed it doesn't change since upgrading to the new software.

I was only thinking Adam is too busy to bother with this kind of thing so letting us design something fresh might not be a bad idea.

For some reason, I remember them being designed by Jason.

i think he did some of them, but not all of them. they stopped being random after the forum software was upgraded awhile back... not sure how simple it is for adam to re-randomize them.

The randomness actually ended up taking up a lot of bandwidth.
But... now that we have more of it, we can do it again.

Go now and make!

(and someone make a post about it if you could)


I think this should be the next art contest (if TinManOne doesn't have a new topic in mind)!!!
That'd be slick. The winner(s) would get to see their entries at random when browsing thegiant (cool prize)!

Oh, I thought someone said something about voting to get the best ones.

Should we keep them on either a red or black background? Or can we go wild with these?

Make it yours!
You can do what you want.
But i sure we will use some discretion in choosing them.
Just saying that there is no limit to the amount that can be chosen.

Here is one that ca77 did back in the day.
