Carpe Noctem Signature Banner

A banner for people's signatures as has been seen for different sites on the web.

I hope I put this in the correct forum! If the staff love it, perhaps uploading it to the site might work.

Let me know what you think!

Edit: If the fog behind the text needs work, let me know. Easy fix.

Arion, thank you!

That's actually very easy to do!

Looks like this


Just replace the <>'s with []'s. The example uses the 2nd style I posted.

I've already got this in my signature on CDO. :)

It look very nice, the only thing I could say is that we should have a VC miniature instead of the skull. Much like Willmark has in his CDO and DOWO banners. That would look even better. Like a skeleton or a zombie or something.

Skeleton.. or maybe Vamp. Sorry Swiss, I've sent you a PM before seeing this topic!

I will put it on the server, so the pic won't get lost. I'll put this image + code on the portal page when it's ready.

Looks neat!

Great work there Swissdictator. A big thanks from the rest of us for the work you have put in.

As for the pic, how about about the one from Markof's avatar if he has no objections:

Can you also create on for mod / admin and PM them please?

I've made some VC sig banners a while ago for the VC Core units using painted mini's. I haven't been able to add in the Specials and Rares yet, but maybe you could use some of the images and put them in this sig banner instead of the skull:

scroll down and you'll see them

I think you can cut them out nicely, maybe mirror some or make them smaller.

I'm starting to think that yes, the dark text is better. Stylistically it fits better, plus I like how it almost seems to be coming out of the mist/fog.

If nobody objects, I think I will stick to the dark text.


I'll create the staff banners in a second. I will then update my original post with the banners.

Master Vampire, I included the updated version of the one with white text... as I am assuming that is what you are asking.

The original post has the most up to date versions now, let me know if you'd like any more work done. Otherwise feel free to add to them the database.

I do ask that, once you've uploaded them to the database, you change the original post so the code points to the images in the database so people don't point to my photo bucket account. :)

Yes, will do that. Though, if you look at your original post, you see the member banner with dark text has the old skull on it. I was wondering if you were going to change it to the skeleton like the staff one or the member one with light text.

It shows up as the updated version for me.

Sometimes photobucket is goofy... you might have the click reload on the thread. If that doesn't work... right click on the image, click view image, then click reload/refresh.

I've also created similar banners for "Painted Army x points"

I have one for... 1k, 2k, 3k, 5k, and 10k. I think that should cover the range well enough.

I can e-mail them to the staff if desired, so people can start using these.
