    Righto, OCAU needs some cool artwork for people who want to link to us and do banner exchanges and wotnot. Sooo.. (digs around in AggCave) .. a shiny new Zalman VF700-Cu VGA cooler is on offer, and 2nd prize is.. (burrows some more) .. a nice mini Maglite + Pocketknife set from ATI. And some OCAU merchandise shiz (stubby holders + stickers) for 3rd place.

    So, what we need is:

    - 120x60
    - 120x600
    - 468x60

    That's pixel sizes. Best to keep each file under 50KB. Only make one size if you like, or all 3, or whatever. JPG or animated GIF is fine. Winner is the one I like the best, but be aware, I will be saving probably all entries from this thread so they may get used even if you don't win.

    I don't really have any specific theme/instructions in mind, just nice banners that make people want to visit OCAU, I guess. :) If you want to do general OCAU ones, or specifically mention forums/pcdb/wiki/whatever.. that's groovy too.

    hmmm... i might have a shot at this, but i probably don't stand a chance...

    EDIT: Yes I am bored, so here we are. If Defyant has any issue with his case being used, contact me! I'll happily remove it, and i don't want to be flamed:p

    Is there some kind of cut-off size for the banners? I've seen a couple in this thread over 50Kb - one was 70Kb and the other was 120Kb.

    Agg, can you clear up which sizes are the heights and which are the widths. Going by the banners on the OCAU forums' and site, I assume you are using the width first then the height.

    Sometimes the simple things in life are often the best. Dont you agree?

    Although... I doubt very much that this will win.... just not enough colour Im afraid and I suspect that it wont hold anyone's attention long enough to really appreciate it for its inner beauty... shame really. ;)
