dave, You clearly misunderstood what I meant with depth. I’m not talking about some random effects on the fonts nor the background. I’m talking about the layout of the banner, at what position things are, what background that’s being used. Only some font effects doesn’t create any depth to a picture, only to the text.

Your opinion is that the banner shouldnt draw any attention to itself, but on the other hand, why have a banner at all then? Maybe just some text and the same BG color as the homepage. I believe a nice banner that draws attention to itself makes the homepage look professional, and makes the visitor interested at looking further into the homepage (if it’s a first time visitor that is). And I’m sure many of the banners that aren’t simple have a lot of thought behind them, not just some random layers and filter effects. But we all have different opinions of course!

Edit: also, can someone be so king to make the homepage using Phife’s banners? Just wondering how it looks like.

I quite like phife’s style generally.

Wow, this Kallio’s banner is literally half Russian.

as it’s unlikely that any single banner gets a majority, I say there should be a subsequent run-off poll for the top two banners, rendering a single decisive result and thus enforcing the democratic legitimacy of this community

Reposting my newspost comment:

I like Kallio’s banner a lot as well. But why are there 21 stars? Why not 12 (number of stars on the Flag of Europe) or 27 (number of members of the EU right now)?

If you will add some stars behind “ETF2L”, there will be exactly 27. But for an aesthetic purpose they were removed.

thats half arsed. they were clearly added to resmble the flag of europe, or one coudlve just put ponies or burgers there instead. easy way out tbh. being aesthetic isnt the only purpose of graphics.
