New Banner

Submitted by Placentasaurus on October 2nd, 2008 at 2:56 PM

Shouldnt we choose the vice-banner in order of how they did? I mean shouldnt the second place banner get the nod in this instance, and if not that, then the third place banner? Not to knock the new banner too hard, but there is a reason it went out in the first round, along w/ the Microsoft Paint banner.

Is it possible that what banner we have is really not that big of a deal?  Do you guys sit at work all day and stare at the MGoBlog banner?  Until this whole fiasco I don't even know if I could have described the old banner without looking at it. 

Brian has his reasons for picking this banner.  Deal, bro.

MGoBlog banner?"

 

Why yes, brah.  Yes, I do.

 

I don't care about the banner either, but let's not get too high and mighty about what issues are important enough to post on the MGoBoard and what issues we posters are 'above' discussing.  This is the land of inanity, and I sort of like it.

There was an inordinate amount of time invested in the banner search, and people got invested.  I admit I'm partial to the Yvgeni banner.  Consider that one my vote to ultimately replace this one.  I'm pretty sure that one's not from Flicker.

Sorry team.  I can admit when I'm wrong, and clearly I am.

Brian, please stop using your time writing Michigan football content and focus it on more important things like the banner.  Also, I was hoping you could change the color of the reply button, the two different blues kinda clash.  Thanks.

Everyone comes to MgoBlog for different reasons, and thats what makes it what it is. I was probably overly into the banner contest, so to see all the work of the artists, and everyone's votes kind of get thrown out the window made me sad. Gross in a good way though right?

I really don't want to have to pull another banner because of copyright blah blah, and this one 1) looks good, 2) was put together by the same guy who did the banner banner, and 3) should only offend the U, which I doubt is dumb enough to antagonize a notable pro-M media outlet. The others are all questionable.

the text below mgoblog is actually the description of a play from UFR. I had to shrink it so the search bar would fit, but in the original you can just make it out.

If i get some time i'll redesign so i can fit the whole thing in, because the small text is all relevant.

BUT

1) I think it got voted out quickly because a lot of people think it looks meh

2) Sorry, but it's his fault for yoinking the image, why do you feel the need to use another one of his banners

3) Count me as another vote for Yvgeni, and I don't think that should offend anyone (or infringe any IP more than this one does)

I would like a copy of the .dwg or .ai file of Brandon Minor so I can use him as the scale figure in all of my section drawings.

Just imagine orthographic Minor running down a hospital corridor or speeding through an elementary school classroom.
