Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 2 2010 6:57 PM EST

^ Epic Fail :PPP

Mythology March 2 2010 7:03 PM EST

any pixel dimensions?

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 2 2010 7:11 PM EST

As of right now I have no limitations but Compact as possible while still being able to read it clearly is probably best :-)

I'm leaving this part as open as possible. If us Judges see something cool and it is too big/small we can always ask for it to be adjusted to fit what we are looking for :-)

Demigod March 2 2010 7:15 PM EST

I love that there's a contest to boost advertising. Even if this contest turns into a flop, thanks for trying.

Sadly, I don't know how to make .gifs, and I never really learned how to make Flash videos (much harder than I expected). If any of you players know can work with Flash, give it a shot.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 2 2010 7:21 PM EST

Didn't think of a Flash but if it follows the Rules then I will allow it :-D

Wraithlin March 2 2010 8:48 PM EST

how do we paste the gif here?

Wraithlin March 2 2010 10:11 PM EST

Photobucket Please delete previous post, and we'll see if this one stays and doesn't disappear like the last one.

IndependenZ March 3 2010 4:54 AM EST

Are older entries allowed? Because I think I have used this image before :P Don't worry, I'll make a brand new one tomorrow. Feel free to disqualify this one, it can serve as an example.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 3 2010 10:28 AM EST

Something Old, Something New........

Yup all

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 3 2010 3:35 PM EST

Ahmmmm noone else with skillz around this joint? Well I'll tell you what folks if there are enough entries I will double the prizes!

If we go even further than a secret number I will triple the prizes!!!!

Demigod March 3 2010 3:54 PM EST

I can handle photoshop without much difficulty, but I know nothing of Flash or .gifs. My attempt to learn Flash failed, but I might be able to learn to make .gifs to help CB... I just don't have any free time.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 3 2010 4:21 PM EST

I know people who kinow people that could do the translation work just give me ideas folks!

Salketer [big bucks] March 3 2010 4:25 PM EST

I can certainly provide someone to make the flash/gif part...

Here's a 10 minute try from me

There is room for improovement but the idea is there.

Salketer [big bucks] March 3 2010 4:38 PM EST

WoW-Like signature? I am ready to provide the resources needed to make this possible.

IndependenZ March 4 2010 8:31 AM EST

Okay, here goes. First a still image:

And the animated version:

Plus, a userbar I made a couple of years ago. Spread the love :P

IndependenZ March 4 2010 8:41 AM EST

Weird. Somehow my Firefox distorts the images in this post a bit. If you're having the same, try right click and 'copy image location', and open that location in another tab. I don't understand how, but then all of a sudden it loads the images perfectly :/

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 4 2010 1:43 PM EST

Bring in more stuff ppl!! Remember the more ppl who Get Involved the higher the chance of making some serious cash!!!

Demigod March 4 2010 9:56 PM EST

These aren't mine, but it makes sense to post them here:

Demigod March 4 2010 10:54 PM EST

I just taught myself the basics of making .gifs, but I really don't have time to add tweens or find quality images. So here's my tutorial piece:


Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 8 2010 9:24 PM EST

Need Moah Stuffs!!!!

Demigod March 8 2010 9:27 PM EST

You know, I thought my little tutorial piece was a steamy turd when I made it, but now I actually like the simplicity of it.

MissingNo March 13 2010 7:02 AM EST

I really like Inde's banners and his userbarc is sweet, I might end up using that on some forums.

Salketer's idea is sick. If we could really do that I'd be down for it.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 13 2010 10:37 AM EST

No Worries I'm not putting any of the idea's down. I'm just looking for more variety! More options to me are a good thing especially in any kind of a Advertisement setting. If one thing doesn't a persons eye another will so that is what I am shooting for :-)

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 13 2010 10:41 AM EST


Before anyone uses any of this stuff I would ask you wait for me to get it set up.

I have a plan in the works I'm just asking for a little bit of patience :-)

Admin{CB1}Slayer333 [SHIELD] March 13 2010 11:20 AM EST

What a spiffy new title.

Demigod March 13 2010 11:28 AM EST

What a spiffy new whoziwhat? Wait, Zen, are you high?

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 13 2010 11:34 AM EST

No I want MORE from the Community and I am willing to pay out of my eyeballs for it.

I know that there are plenty of Talented players in CB capable of making things in flash, .gif, .html, .xml and whatever else.

Bring your thoughts and ideas to the Table folks!

Demigod March 13 2010 1:08 PM EST

Here you go. These things take way too long to make.


euphoria. March 13 2010 5:44 PM EST

Something I whipped up this morning..

Salketer [big bucks] March 15 2010 8:03 PM EDT

bump :) To keep ideas coming! I will send more when I have some free time.

Demigod March 15 2010 9:30 PM EDT

I made this banner specifically for the MUD community. Considering that they use such basic (or text-only) graphics, our lack of graphics might be an easy sell to them. Of course these banners would be clickable links returning to Carnage Blender.

I also made this as a bump, but Salk beat me to it. Jerk.


Demigod March 15 2010 9:53 PM EDT

Will an admin please update this list with the new additions? It would be nice to keep these in stock.

IndependenZ March 16 2010 1:14 PM EDT

Yeah I agree with Demigod. Plus, it might be cool to incorporate a link to the banner page in the *Refer A Friend!* page. People will have easier access to images that advertise CB. And maybe add in html and/or BB-code how to use one of those images as a link.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 18 2010 2:29 PM EDT


AdminNightStrike March 18 2010 10:34 PM EDT

There are some good banners here. I especially like the sentiments of "ton sos stuff, still no graphics.." and "tired of flash, get depth instead" that I see in a few of them. Keep it up!

kevlar March 19 2010 1:14 AM EDT

Euphoria, kudos to your entry... I <3 it

iBananco [Blue Army] March 19 2010 7:04 PM EDT

AdminNightStrike March 19 2010 9:09 PM EDT

That supposed to be a hot ascii chick? :)

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 21 2010 1:47 PM EDT


Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 21 2010 1:48 PM EDT

Saw the app in the Forums and had to give it a try >:-D

Demigod March 23 2010 11:30 PM EDT

El bumpo.

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 27 2010 3:21 PM EDT


Zenai [Ministry of Pain] March 29 2010 12:59 PM EDT

Zenai [Ministry of Pain] April 2 2010 11:58 AM EDT
