Is that an official typeface or did you make the letters by hand?

IK = III, but the third I is drunk.

It's an official typeface. I might go back and edit the K specifically to try to make it look better. Might also change the color to try to make the letters stick out more.

I wasnt going to bother mentioning it, but yes, it does match the background too much.
You could try darkening the back image a bit, but not the right end.

SITUATION:
I have two laptops now. The one with the BW Forums FTP info saved on it is like my older one right, but nowadays I just leave it at my job. So when I'm actually at home looking at the BrikWars forum I don't have access to the FTP.

What I need to do is obviously get the BW FTP login onto my new sexy home laptop, but I haven't done it yet.
:(

The gradient on the letters is too dark at the bottom.
Set the gradient so the bottom has the darkness of the current middle.
An easy test.

I think the top is ok, but any darker red seems to be bad.
So try the bottom at the current top red and the top either a lighter red or slide it to slight orange/red, but still brighter than the current top.
don't want to go too bright because then it blends into the background again.



You could even try one just solid color, the same as the top red.
Gradients don't always make things better.

He only works in GT, and sometimes very very dark bley.

It looks like we have a new banner now, but I'm still playing around with the one I was working on.

I took some inspiration from Ken and decided to work with some GT. :D

I love it. All it needs now is a ZMC copyright.
