E-shuushuu has always thrived on user-contributed content. E-shuushuu staff have traditionally allowed the users to contribute to the site's growth, and the quality of the site's banners are a testament to the talent of e-shuushuu's users.
Banners are split between two different types:
- Split Banners - Split banners were prevalent in the early days of e-shuushuu. At the time, the site's layout required banners to be split into three parts. due to the site having a non fixed-width layout. The three parts could be any width, so long as the total width of all three images combined did not exceed 980 pixels in width.
- Left - The banner part shown on the left hand side of the banner area.
- Middle - the middle image.
- Right - The right part of the banner.
- Single Banners - The de-facto standard, a single banner is 980 pixels wide and 200 pixels high.
New banner submissions are accepted here :
Banners may be submitted in .jpg, .png and .gif format. Animated banners are also allowed, but it is recommended that the animated part be of the split type banner, with only the middle image containing animations. This is to ensure that the banner does not place too much strain on the server's bandwidth.
Special Event Banners
A number of special event banners have been made for special events.
