Here's an offering from me:

left - middle - right

all together

I still have no capacity for anything but plain backgrounds >_<.
The kanji reads as "e-shuushuu" (well... with the furigana, anyway), and more specifically means e/ii = electronic/electric, shuushuu = collection. Nya.

On another note, I wanted to use this:

but I remember reading that the formats of the three pictures should be the same, and I didn't want to change my other ones to GIF. Is this still true, or could I have a couple of PNGs and a GIF?

It seems to work if you modify the html code a bit. ^^
You can get the trial code with the link Fettgans posted.

You can't see it, but these are actually animated, if you modified the code a bit..

The ones in a black background is how it looks like expanded. (Using 1280x1024 resolution^^)
I don't know much about html, but I could at least do the small things. :P

Nice banner there Fuwari. :) I wouldn't worry too much about complex backgrounds since the banner will be 'broken up' in 3 parts anway, so plain is fine.
Although I like the theme and kawaii figures in yours, they don't superbly fit together. I think a version with all chibi nekomimi would be best next to a version with 'normal' nekomimi characters like the right one.

To honest, it looks very plain as a couple of my ideas back fired but I'm interested in ur opinions and any recommendations if nescessary.

PS: Does it matter if it saved in png or jpg format?

Nice, December^^
The only real complaint(this is just personal opinion) I have that it's another Rozen banner. We already have one on rotation. I was hoping you'd choose a different anime for more variation.

Image

Wouldn't want the whole site to give the impression that it's a Rozen-fan site. Shuushuu's meant to be all-around. :lol:

I thought there wasn't a Rozen Maiden lol

I don't see that banner often but I can make another one to give it more variation :)
Just let me gather my ideas for the time being :wink:

Ah, I knew that it would work that way; I just vaguely remembered there being some rule of some sort that the three pictures needed to be of the same format. Looking back through the threads, it doesn't seem that there is... what I'm remembering is probably this:
anonymous_object wrote:We can try to work something out if you want to keep the border, but either way, can you make the middle one png instead of jpg to match the left and right?
(Odd how the mind remembers things). All of the current banners are in PNG format, so it's possible that the site just grabs the left.png/middle.png/right.png out of a random folder instead of searching for the extensions/formats. I can't think of any other ways to tell how the system is selecting the files, so I can't tell if it can select multiple files of different formats yet. Then again, Anony said he didn't mind animated GIFs and previously mentioned he'd take a JPG setup (*points to December*):
anonymous_object wrote:I'd prefer PNG, but if a JPG setup looks ok, they will be alright as well.
(Continues mumbling to himself). Er, so what does Anony have to say?

Hmm. I made the banner with the animated GIF in mind, so I agree with you on that. But then I wondered if it would be too much if all I had were chibi nekomimis everywhere, so I decided to use Fate(?) instead. But really, I just ran out of chibi nekomimis >_<. I need to find some more and see what I can make.

Oh, what a very interesting topic this is. ^^ I'll try my hand at making one too, but I won't guarantee anything.

Solwyvern's neko SHnY one is so damn cute ^^

Yeah, the code currently just picks a random directory and expects the files to be left.png, middle.png, and right.png. However, I can change that so don't let it limit you. I can make it so each banner can have different file types for each piece.
e-shuushuu!
