First of, its too high. like 70 pixels would be ok imo.. The space between "BroodW" and "ARMAPS" is totally not acceptable <3. There shouldnt be any dots after "events", the banner must show clearly what we do, not "kinda" what we do.. the banner atm tells me "whatever" or something. On that part the original one on top is the best.
I'd say like [Maps Events Community] ... Also the Starcraft font isn't too sexy.. :( I'd personally prefer a font wich is more personally asociated with the site perhaps. I will try to make one myself, and i hope you will like that one :o
I think clean design is they key though. especially since you use no graphics whatsoever on the rest of the page.. simple geometrical shapes or something. i will try designing an easy-to-remember logotype too :o
Well, i like the new banner, even if i don`t like the 0815 font and that the words next to it are easier readable than broodwarmaps. the small banner in your pictures SP are sweet, buut i don't really like them too. The look more like a coding language from 1987 or something, or a title of an Asteroids clone ^^ sorry :)
i try to make new banners and stiuff myself, not that you say i jsut bitch around ;) _(im at home for some days, maybe i can upload something the next hours, we will see)
