    Watermarks help protect the graphic from others ripping it. In some cases, it is essential.

    Very nice for a static banner!

    Please add these words next to webhostingsources.com - Human edited directory of web hosting services

    Change the red on the servers to grey.

    ultra, looks like someone spilled blood on it lol

    fabrikated

    I understand the watermark idea.

    But nobody but myself could use these banners if you add 'webhostingsources.com' somewhere on the banner.
    Actually, all banners should have that since any web hosting directory could use any of the phases I left in the first message.

    How about this, water mark is fine unless I decide its one of the top three then you must remove before the contest is over.

    By the way Myles at prioritycolocation.com and Jeff-Rd (web designer who posts here) can let you know that I pay for services promptly.

    i can barely read the text. it needs to be bigger and use dark blue

    it was better when you had the lines rotating - try these

    Is this an interactive contest? Because I thought there is a prize and a deadline, so what's this all "tweak this" and "change that" and "ummm that frame needs some slowing down"?

    timechange

    Should i PM all those changes then? If not how else would I state your close or not?

    markcw, contests have a set of guidelines and a timeframe. Then the entries are posted. Then you spend some time pondering in private "umm is it this...no, this looks better...this is the winner but it would still need a couple of tweaks" before you announce a winner.

    That's my understanding of a clean contest.

  30. #30
    ok, I can do that

    ultratorture - banner 2 needs some work but I like

    ic3d banner - 1 needs some changes but I like

    Any changes I will ask for on Wednesday at 9pm

    All banners entered become property of Programmer Solutions, Inc. Please do not enter banners with watermarks.
    All banners entered?? Shouldn't that be all banners that win? What you are saying is that any and all submissions become your property as soon as they are submitted.

    Could you please clarify?

    An animated banner for your consideration.

    The only thing that is an issue is that I have to optimize it to your file size specs. But I won't bother doing it until I know if is a winner or not.
