Well here is the deal:

After A previous post about the amount that bleeping-computer has expanded in the past two years, the idea of creating A banner to post in your web-site, blog, or myspace.

My question is:

Does any-one have any ideas for this banner?

Any ideas will be appreciated, and if they are good enough then I will try them. :thumbsup:

Your bleeping computer icon/avatar is great! The overall banner though I find confusing - too many transitions for one thing - perhaps combine the 'tired of your' and the *bleeping* computer into one line? Also with no visible background it's hard to tell why the text is appearing where it does which puts me off a bit.

Just a suggestion - have the bleeping icon there all the time, but stop it bleeping when the final text comes up?

Also replace the "!" at the end of "Tired of your *bleeping* computer!" with a "?".

I have now run across a horrible horrible problem....

Photobucket is now screwing up my photos when I upload them... they are resized and completely murdered. They are within their limits both bit wise (Kb) and Height/Width wise....

Any other ideas where I can upload them?

EDIT: Never mind... I have now discovered imageshack...

Here are two new ones. The only difference between them are the backgrounds....

Nice work. :thumbsup:
I made the backgrounds those colours because it would match the site colour scheme, but there's probably no need to restrict it to that set. Change as you wish.

The first looks cleaner to me.

Another suggestion for the sequence, if you will permit WlkingMan:

1. Your bleeping icon centred no text.
2. "Tired of your bleeping computer?"
3. Bleeping icon on left with BleepingComputer .com with slogan. (leave out "pay a visit to")
4. Same as 3 but icon no longer bleeps.

Just thinking out loud.
