I like the halloween banner. In particular the tower - is more RPG-ish than the modern camp tower.

Just changing format - I spose I could ask an admin if they could do it but they usually say no.

Eh some member always praises the Halloween Watch Tower every year. Yet nothing changes as I asked for opinions two years ago when I was part of the staff.

I love the Halloween theme top banner this year. Can't remember if it was the same last year, but this one rocks.

As far as the tower symbol versus the classic fire tower usual banner, I think both are good, in their own way. How's that for a politicians answer? lol, but seriously, I do think they both are cool.

It's the same banner every year for every major holiday. If I recall the Banners were made years ago by a member, and the sever is setup to replace & remove them.

If the banner was to stay the same minus the pumpkin I would be in favour of it replacing the regular tower.

The tower was made by Omega, the rest of the image by Arhu.
And it is not automatically displayed unfortunately. It needs a manual action to replace our banner a few times a year.

Small correction: The banner was made by forum member Jimmith back in 2009, not by me.

I've always enjoyed this banner, please keep it in rotation. Maybe we can have a turkey version in a few weeks ?

If someone makes us an interesting banner, we can consider that

Sorry, but I just couldn't resist…

Now about those turkeys: Well, I bet they are there, but you can't see them due to the banner's scale. And because the city's backlit.

I seeeeem to remember either Myrthos or Arhu mentioning that there was rework of the artwork (and software at a different point) incoming but I guess life got in the way and it didn't materialize.
I wasn't on it for nearly enough but the artwork was one thing that RPGDot had going for it.

I'd just like to interject here and point out that I'm not going to say anything to spoil the mood, Chief. I'll just float here and watch. Don't mind me, just sitting here, floating and watching, that's me.
