This New Banner is Bad & It Should Feel Bad.

This new banner is ugly & worse than the old banner.

New members are becoming mods after 2 months of posting here.

This site is bunk.

Because the "Fitfreak" looks like it was drawn by a tween in MS paint & it has a boring stock Fit in it?

I had no idea, I've only been posting here for a decade and owned a GD3 with the Fit version of that badge (blue dot though) /s.

I'm saying it is a badly executed MS paint looking copy of that, when knope did a MUCH better job below.

It just so tremendously lazy.

"Guys we have to update this, but have no graphic design folks & 25 seconds in MS paint"

This sounds like a complaint a teenager would have.

Maybe some constructive criticism would be better. Perhaps, "Hey, the new banner could use some improvement and I have some great ideas if(the person who is in charge of site decor) is open to suggestions?" Unless you don't have any better ideas. In which case you should just keep your opinion to yourself, because criticism without a suggestion isn't good criticism

I have constructive criticism: The old banner was better. The font on this one is terrible, the gradient yellow looks like a 4th grader's powerpoint in 2003 and they chose the worst version of the Fit, the pre-refresh GK.

And suggesting stuff doesn't work on this site, IB couldn't care less & the staff just makes their friends into more staff, rather than you know, trying to improve the site.

But I really appreciate a long time contributor with a whopping two posts insulting my intelligence.

There is no need to insult forum members. Keep this discussion constructive. Maybe IB will read it and fixit. There are only a couple of mods that are active here. There was no word to us at all that the format of the site nor the banner will be changed.

I'd kind of like a banner that embraces all 3 Generations.

I don't HATE this banner, but my biggest criticism would be it is Gen 3 exclusive.

Ill have to admit I dont care much for the new banner either. I know someone put some effort into making it, so no disrespect intended. Overall I think it needs more contrast..too much yellow. I also like the idea of having all three generations represented. Not that I feel left out, but I think its cool to have them all together to quickly see the Fits evolution. I like mr_RogerWill's design, not sure why they never used it.

Maybe the site owners can do another banner submission thread? Im sure theres people on here that are willing to have a go at it for fun, and free of reward (including myself).

See, I find having all three generations overkill and cluttered lol. As a GE owner I don't mind them not having it shown. Idk I don't pay much attention to the banner though.
