Greetings all! I think this is the correct place to post this, if not, admins feel free to move it. Anyways on to the point. I've been looking around everywhere for a Gentoo web banner, you know the ones that are typically 468x60. So since I couldn't find one I decided to go ahead and make one of my own. Here is what I have so far. Any and all feed back would be greatly appreciated. At some point I'm going to submit it to the Gentoo WWW team on the main page and see if they'll put it up.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/DeathCrush904/gentoo_webbanner-468x60.gif It's about 58k so it's not too bad
EDIT:

As I said, feedback is greatly appreciated.

I like the command prompt. I think the other frame is too busy though. IMHO it should be a simpler, maybe choose either the Gentoo G xor Tux.

Alrighty, I took out Tux as well as the 'Powered by:' and you're right it does free it up a bit more. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v723/DeathCrush904/gentoo_webbanner-468x60-02.gif I was trying to go for the feel of the main gentoo.org page

Nice one! I like the first link, with the penguin in the background. Don't know if the animation would work as the main banner on a page tho.

Shouldn't it be `#' instead of `$'?

# is many times used to denote a comment inside of a config file. If you load up a terminal, you will usually see a $ for the prompt. However that may not be 100% accurate as there may be some terminals out there that use # for all I know. Good question though.

$ is used for normal users. # is for root.
