Color or B/W Sponsor gif's  Reply with quote  

I think that the sponsors images should be in color. They are sponsors after all, with the whole point being to have a bit of visibility to their market in exchange for things they do for the lan party. Also I think the B/W (grayscale) is ugly.

Other's think they look better gray.

What do you think?

B&W sponsers images go with the layout.

if they were in color, it would look like they were just thrown on the page as an afterthought. i can't tell you how many sites are good except for the slap-dash sponser image(s). that's not what good design is all about. i wrestled with the conflict of sponser image placement when designing the overall layout. and this is what i have come up with. they do appear on all pages (minus the forums) to give them the "airtime" they need. this is a step-up from the old OLP site, which just had the sponsers on the home page. and they rollover in color to give it a "kick."

do the sponsers play that big of a role in our lan that we want to draw THAT much attention to them? i don't think so. people come to the website for the forums, to signup, and to hopefully to read the news updates. i'm willing to bet very few of our visitors click on the sponser links.

sponsers have given us swag and and tourney prizes, and that's it. would people come to a lan that has no swag or prizes? yeah. we've been doing that for years.

Same here.....it's cool looking. I say let it be unless one of the sponsors throws a hissy fit or says something.

If Nvidia wants to bitch and moan, I am sure ATI would like to take their spot.

They have been doing that alot lately.....

they look somewhat better in gray. but that's not really the issue, is it Goodboy? ultimately we should display their banners as they want them presented. if they didn't specify how they were to be presented at the inception of their relationship with okgg, then going with gray should be acceptable (until such time as they bitch about it). however, in the case of nvidia, I think okgg is obligated to not screw with their preferred banner colors, since it is my understanding that they DID specify that the banner was to be presented "as is".
