    Hi I have created a fun little forum, that is more of just a hobby to get used to running a server. Anyway the site is in my sig, I'm currently creating a banner / logo for it, I'm not very good with gimp (no photoshop available) but I have made something. Tell me what you think, improvement I could make, etc.

    ps: I know it's a wierd size, will prolly fix that.

    This banner looks like it's directly beamed into now from 1994. If you do want to keep the smilies, remove the white space around them. Make the text bolder, and increase the kerning... a little.

    Could you possibly make your banner longer? Putting a line of type at the top and a line of type at the bottom?

    And maybe a lil less drastic gradient. Heavy gradients are straight out of the 90s. Choose colors that are closer in color, like a medium green to dark green, etc.

    As mention before, I'd bold the type. At least one line. Which one is the title or the 'subhead' of your site? I would definitely make that line either bolder or a lil bigger than the other so it will have dominance.

    Hope it helps
