That's right, make a new link banner for us, and we'll give you one (1) Gmail invite if we end up using yours. (Gmail is Google's web-based e-mail service with one gigabyte of free storage. The only way to sign up is if you are invited.)


Here is our current banner:

The Mushroom Kingdom - All about Mario


Guidelines:


  • Image must be 468x60
  • Must include "themushroomkingdom.net" or "TheMushroomKingdom.net" or "www.themushroomkingdom.net"
  • Background must be black
  • Banner should either have a picture of Mario or mention Mario
  • Use the Foo font for "The Mushroom Kingdom"
  • Save your banner in PNG format.



Send your banner(s) to: contest -at- themushroomkingdom dot net (or post them here).


That's it, good luck!

I already have an invite, but might make a banner anyway.  Although getting recognition for creating a banner for the best Mario site on the net is award enough, will there be anything else to win if the invite isn't used?

So, TMK is moving to TheMushroomKingdom.net?

Will the site colors and style stay the same?

Do you need anything else?

At the moment, I don't have any ideas for alternate prizes...

The domain is already active (it forwards)...  We'll probably be on ClassicGaming forever, unless we can get access to E3 another way.

Site design is staying the same.

I've got an invite, too. But I like making things, so I may do it.
I'm not a good drawer, so beware.

Here is a result of my experiments with 3D text.  It will be deleted shortly.



Here's a start for a banner with SMS Mario and the text from TMK.  I am not going to waste anymore time on it.  If someone else wants it, they can have it.

Excuse me, but I believe you must send them to contest (at) themushroomkingdom (dot) net in order to compete, thank you. I already have.

Since we want to have a very good banner, I'm going to publicly critique the entries as they come in.
nintendoexpert89 (GMail): too boxy, text is too small
MamaMia Mario: Haha, but at least make sure people can tell who that is on the banner... I might move the text around a bit as well
Luigison #1: 404 Not Found
Luigison #2: please antialias resized objects
LlamaYoshi eleven11: Mario font is overused in bad ways (you can see through the letters) ... crappy white pixels surround the image
TEM: way, way too cluttered
Ian #1(GMail) general comments: use PNG format so you don't have color/detail loss
Ian #2(GMail): green blob looks kinda weird
cowman (GMail): very bad collaging job, negated images don't look good, motto doesn't make sense
Super-Dino-Yoshi #1: I don't get the motto... and "kinda" is spelled wrong
Super-Dino-Yoshi #2: I don't like the font substitution
Super-Dino-Yoshi #3: ... or that one...

Here is mine, sorry, but it has some white in the background.

Well, that was the theme, but I suppose I could take out three fourths of the images.
