Save our City Banners
« on: September 03, 2012, 11:34:22 am »
I wanted to help, how ever I am broke as a joke, so I did what I could, i have signed petitions, I have yelled at NC soft over twitter, encouraged others to never buy another NCsoft title again, and this



I made a Banner for Face book, any one is free to use it in fact I encourage you to. I am not sure what good it will do, but its the only thing I could think to do right now.

Thank you Xeno i know it doesn't feel like much but this helps to give us a face, and we need that, we need to appear as one as much as possible, one group, one goal, this is out Task Force, our Hami raid.

This looks great, Xenophage. Thanks for creating it.

I have reached out to Meggan, who initiated the main petition on change.org (http://tinyurl.com/saveCOH), and offered to resize your image for her so that it would fit on that site (she currently does not have a picture).

I have not heard back from her yet, but I did a quick test in PS. The image size on change.org seems to be 556x304 px, which is a bit different than your facebook banner. I am usually very much against messing with aspect ratios, but the result looks very acceptable (I am sure you can check it yourself very easily). I think this is fine, but I just wanted to run it by you.

I'll let you know if I hear back from her and she's going to put it up.

it is taller then the face book banner cause you can adjust the banned up and down but not left and right and some times if the image is too small up and down or just thr right size it stretches the image cutting off the sides, so I assure you that was done intentionally

I think you might have misunderstood me. I have nothing to say about banners on facebook (I am not even on it).

I just wanted to be respectful and make sure that you were ok if I resized your image for change.org, if Meggan will add it as an image to the petition. The size of images on change.org is different than your banner (556x304 vs 850x340).

In the spirit of the one posted, I wanted to make one with a bit more action in it... also showing the coming together of heroes AND villains in one final clash against those who might destroy our city (also using a more current logo for CoHF).
