Have your artwork seen by thousands of people!

I have recently acquired a very prominent display case on a site that is "almost" as popular as ours. However, while our fine ad certainly is worthy of the spot, I would like to put something more interesting there. As such, I am launching a small competition.

I would like you to design some leaderboard banner ads of the dimensions 728x90 pixels that I can put up on display. Anyone who can draw or is good at graphical design can participate! What to put on there, you ask? It could be a simple ad, a comic strip, a fine piece of art, anything goes! The goal is to come up with as many different leaderboards we can. We'll keep going until interest is lost or we are booted off the spot!

Please send all submissions to me by PM. I will select the best and put them on rotation as they come in. Everyone who gets a leaderboard on display will also earn a 2010 Leaderboard Design Contest Participant badge, and who knows, maybe we'll even put up a vote for the overall best leaderboard design?!

This is your chance to shine!

Note that the ad will link back to SMW Central at all times.
Cool competition. I wonder how long it'll take them to realise what's happening ...

Of course, I'm betting they'll do the same thing back to us during the competition or after it. But hey, everyone's happy because we all gain some sort of revenue. Technically they're paying more anyway since our ads are more expensive. :)
it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt

then it becomes lulz


I should have something witty to put here (even if it's just to update dated info), shouldn't I?

Advertising Space

This is probably pretty damn obvious, but does the subject matter have to be anything specific?

As I said, anything goes! :D

Although, it must be safe for work and children and whatnot.
Is there a deadline to this wonderful contest?
As I said, we'll keep going as long as people care. The more banners we can produce, the better.
I'll help!
One question, what does it need to be about?
I can pretty much do anything.
Anime List
Manga List
D³ Releases: RL1, [RL2], [RL3], RiS
SMWHacking? I rest my case.
SMWCentral? I leave it to rest.

Could we keep track of the competition on the front page, like with some kind of leaderboard? Then we could have a Leaderboard Leaderboard. But we'd need a competition for that leaderboard too, and a way of keeping track of that score...
you know that it's me that typed this because of my signature right here
OOOWEE!! Something I'm actually okay at! Someone fetch me some paper and a scanner.

Sounds interesting. But what's the leaderboard for?
Must the art be something created by yourself?

And I presume he meant anything. Although you should stick something about SMWCentral in it IMO.

But what's the leaderboard for?

To put on Jul's Project Wonderful banner. "Leaderboard" is the name of the type of image used for the ads.
I should mention that the banners can be animated GIFs if you wish.
Well, I have been wanting to improve my design skills. This will be an interesting project.
I no longer have interest in SMW Hacking as I did when I first started several years ago.
Hrmm, I think I'll do something unique. I'll draw this in yy-chr, then put it in smw, then convert into a .png! (This is okay, right?)

1 minute of effort and i came up with this ... the hardest part was the colours.

(this is half serious half joke, so I posted it instead of pming it. but hey, if this actually gets put up as a banner then lol)
Mine does not show pixel numbers. Let me know to resize this or not.
I finished mine. :D
Sounds interesting, indeed. I will try to think of something clever.
