Hello everyone!

TibiaQA.com is proudly announcing the Fansite Banner Design contest! The goal of this contest is to design a banner that will be used to identify TibiaQA on other fansites and on the official website.

Contest rules:

  • the contest runs from 16. September 2019 00:00 CEST until 6. October 2019 23:59 CEST
  • the fansite banner suggestions must be posted as an answer to this topic
  • the fansite banner suggestions must comply with the technical/content details provided below
  • there's no limit to the number of suggestions one player can make
  • requests for clarification can be made as comments to this topic; answers should only be used to submit a contest entry

Technical details:

  • Size: 150px x 100px
  • Format: gif
  • Max weight: 65KB

Content details:

  • The banner must feature the Omniscient Owl (fansite item of TibiaQA); an in-game sprite can be used, but a re-drawn image that fits the banner style has much higher chances of winning
  • The banner should say "TibiaQA" or "TibiaQA.com" in any place
  • The banner can use minor animations (no heavy blinking etc.)
  • And of course, the banner should fit the TibiaQA style and be a good representation of the fansite
  • TibiaQA.com logos and other graphical materials can be freely used and are available for download here.

Prizes (as selected by other fansite admins and CMs)

  1. Golden Trophy of Excellence + Nightmare doll + Rune emblem of choice
  2. Silver Trophy of Excellence + Vampire doll + Rune emblem of choice
  3. Bronze Trophy of Excellence + Teddy bear + Rune emblem of choice

    Special prize (an entry selected as an official banner for TibiaQA by the TibiaQA.com staff)

    • Omniscient Owl

    Picking winners procedure:

    • The top 6 entries selected by the TibiaQA.com staff will be sent to the fansite admins and CMs for voting. Their votes will determine the 3 winners.
    • In addition to the above, the TibiaQA.com staff will select one entry on its own that will replace the current fansite banner and become the new official banner of TibiaQA. It can be any entry from the pre-selected top 6. The special prize for this is the Omniscient Owl.

    Disclaimer:

    • Any entries submitted in this contest can be freely modified and used by the TibiaQA.com team at any time for the purpose of representing and advertising the TibiaQA.com fansite

    Good luck to all of the participants!
    TibiaQA.com team.

    @Zupakode How many first places in fansite's contest you won, that you think it is so easy to do? ;) Hehe...
    @lehula dohon I don't see anything wrong with making contest, where you have to do something that requires some skills :o

    Is not easy to win contest but I think is harder to get 4000 points.

    Imo - nope, because contribution systems are based on being active, you're getting points and you're 100% sure that sooner or later you'll get the item. In contest you never know, and there's only one person who win :) I know people who wanted to win Midnight Panther Doll in 2015, they still trying without any results. Be respectful for somebody's work.

    it's a shame you can't design it on a piece of paper.

     My little crappy attempt that gave me way too much of a headache, but I thought I might as well post it ^^.

    Animated version :)

     ver.3  changes eye colors to those of TibiaQa when blinking :)

    by (33 points)
    Looks great! ^^
    The animated version is above 65KB though, have you tried compressing it or making some changes?
    by (16 points)
    Thanks,  and I appreciate that you saw it's above 65kb so I made a new simpler version ^^
    by (40 points)
    the third version was really good

    Hey there!

    I have made two versions:

    Pixel Version 54KB

    The players resemble Tibias Fanbase, where they ask a question, hence the ( ? ).
    The Omniscient Owl (representing TibiaQA) then answers the question, hence the ✔️
    The players in the banner is in no way supposed to resemble any player from within the game.

    Drawing Version 57KB

    My own version of the Omniscient Owl, added in the banner along with its magical effect!

    TibiaQA Staff, feel free to use my owl for whatever, after all it was drawn for TibiaQA smiley

    by (40 points)
    I have to say I liked your work, the pixel version is nice
    by (208 points)
    Hope see it in the first place!

    Hi guys

    Here is my entry

    Tibia QA - U can do all the questions and find all the answers about everything ON TIBIA (Quest, addons, cook recipe, atlas...)

    Hope u like.

    by (16 points)
    Maybe add a dark outline around the text? Because it blends too much with the wooden arrows and it's super hard to read. Other than that good job :)
    by (18 points)
    thanks for the tip! I will try before the deadline :DDD

    Hey there! Your entry file size is 118 KB, max limit is 65KB
    Try to compress is or change a few things to make it valid for the contest ^^
    by (833 points)
    Thanks for catching this, Krisph!

    No worries, I assume that the 65 KB limit is set by Cipsoft?
    I'm working on my submission but my first banner had over 200 KB+ , so it kinda forces you to make a somewhat simple, but neat banner
    by (833 points)
    Correct, the limit is set by CipSoft.
    by (11 points)
    Thank you guys, I didn't saw the limit size.
