Im not going to lie man, these things have happened in the past. I understand that you've almost been on the site for a year now. But this feels like its moving fast. Talking about making a banner and whatnot now, I've been a member of this website for nearly 4 years, not long after it was created and most certainly when it was just getting going. ASF is an international thing now, something like this is something I personally don't want to see rushed. You said you all wanted specific and not done elsewhere, so let's start from there.
EDIT: could someone do one of those red/blue backgrounds with the person being white silhouette? But have the guy obviously be crouched with a long rifle and ghillie suit. If you don't know what im talking about check out the nba logo thing.
soundguru: I like the 3rd one you made in that last post, could you change the text so it doesn't have the lines at the bottom? I've got a professional patch maker in canada (sue from COM patches who can help us out with this, just gotta settle on a final design).
