Coming together nicely...

This just a personal opinion, but I would figure with a name like Forsaken Lords the site would be a little darker and more ominous. Could just be me though.

Your site is a little larger though...I don't exactly work with a small screen resolution and I'm having to use the horizontal scroll. Try bringing the size down a bit.

Well the colors are gotten from our banner which someone made ..

I am not the photshop type person ..dont even h ave it.. I have paint hahaha.. So I have 2 banners the other one is brownish in color and peeps didnt like the colors that went well with that.

Should someone with artistic talent join us and donate a new banner..  I would love to try making new setup.. its fun <SMILE>

Cicalla, of course I wanted to thank you for your script..since I have been using it.. I havent had to tell ONE person why they had to fill out an application to join  Forsaken Lords Board even if they already have Forsaken Lords Guild Tag in game..   Its cool

About Size.. curious what resolution are you using Ryala?  Because I played around with the size til no one in my guild complained <GRIN>

My resolution is set at 1600x1200.

I might play around with something in Photoshop when I have the time.

First let me say this I am assuming that Horizontal scroll bar is the one that goes at the bottom of the screen and moves the stuff left and right...(its layout is horizontal)  If this is not correct then rest of my post wont make sense

Im not  using that big of a resolution and I dont need the horizontal bar..

I am curious.. do you see what is making it so wide that you cannot  avoid the horizontal bar?  Is it on all pages?

Please I have tried to make it work with just about everyone who uses it on my site... but I do wanna make it work for everyone..

I know that sometimes someone logs in with an EXTREMELY long name (grrr) and that messes up the left content boxes on the “home” page but it never made it so wide as to need the scroll bar to move it left right to see it all..

Any help.. I appreciate...Any art work.. Love it too .. would love to see the dark Ominous Banner you might come up with.. This is our other banner.. not much color in it..had a color scheme based on the colors in here but you will see most like the change from this to what we have now.. (see prev posts)

hmmm...well, it's not doing it now. (Yes, I did mean the scroll on the bottom.) Maybe it was the long name thing that did it. Didn't mean to get you worried!! As a fellow webmaster, I understand.

I like the design elements you had going in the old banner. Was it just the color scheme people didn't like?

BTW is there anything else you want included besides the guild name? Like game name, server name, quote, etc.? I just barely flew back into Vegas from Dallas last night so I haven't had much time to do anything but go to work last night, but just for when I get the time to play with it.

name="1614998">

The banner was uh borrowed from our old old webpage. and ya Ihad lotta browns and those kinda colors from the banner in the page..

When someone donated the current banner, I fiddled around with things..and people seemed to like it .. Said they like it brighter.. (I guess forsaken folx can be bright <SMILE>)  We have always had a dragon in our front page... The dragon associated with the old banner was an animated walking dragon..Since I didnot maintain the old site I do not have access to the graphic... Wonder if old site is up..hmmm no cant find it..   But other than a dragon being around.. Our guildleader is female (in game and rl) and is a Barbarian anemed Redbomb Shell, who took this guild from near collapse (18 mains) to being quite large now (100+ Mains 300+total) and still maintaining and incredible family feel to it.

There is a sticky note in our public area I believe that one of our well versed bards wrote about our struggles from the time the guild was first split off from The Remnants to the our last brush with it nearly being deguilded and that is when Redbomb took the lead..  We were truely Forsaken but  now we baste in the glory of what we have become..

So maybe you can take some inspiration from that... Dont feel ya have go off and ruse and make something for us.. but I would love to see what those who are more artsey (I cant make anything with paint program :-> )

Thankyou for letting me know about the width thingie..Glad to know its not a major problem (just when Madsenwasalreadytaken logs on) heheh

I have an animated dragon if you want it Not sure if it's the same one you had on your old site - just something that's been lingering around on my band's website for a couple of years now. I don't know where it originated; when I took over the band website they wanted to keep the dragon they had on their old (crappy) site.
