small complain though, I don't feel that the arrows fit the general design
Yeah, I've though of drawinig these handdrawn like the text was, but that indeed doesn't match the other lines.

Also discovered that some filters kinda screwed with the figures. Already thought something was off but couldn't pinpoint it yet. Fixed that, figures now look as intended.

That is very nice! Only thing really is the lack of anti-aliasing on the text and Mario.

You could also maybe try to have the bevel effect a tad smaller, but more shiny.

Pyro Guy, assuming that this your final banner black contrasts very badly against dark blue. Make the black text have a white outline or I'm forced to decline the banner.

Sorry to be a bit too blunt, but I can't accept banners that have bad contrast.

If it's not, ignore my comment.

Agree with Baby Luigi.

Black is not a good match with a cold color like Blue , not a good contrast at all.

It also breaks the composition because its such a strong plain dark color with all the other colorful palettes.

Also , the other day i saw the letters for ''featured'' , and whilei dont dislike them , i would have tried to make something closer to the current Mario Party fonts , judging you guys are going in the MP route and using a very modern Mario render.

Like this



i was recreating MPDS font for a thumbnail. Obvously not finished , only for reference purposes.

Just a suggestion.

Don't worry, the black 'articles' isn't final; I just wanted to see what people thought about the general design. The artwork and background were just last minute things to complete the banner and give a sense of scale. So yeah, definitely not final, but thanks for the tip.

The most modern MP font has a blue outlining, like this. Based on that, I had another go at recreating the font:



I think I prefer the 'articles', but I'd like to hear some opinions before changing the 'featured'.

I don't think I like the blur out at the top of the title. Also, I think you can reduce the text borders there a bit.

I only reduced the borders for the 'articles', because I want to scrap the 'featured' design anyway.

Keep the anti-aliasing thing I mentioned in mind though. It currently lacks anti-aliasing.

Also, I feel like the dots in the letters need to be a little smaller and compacter. Otherwise it's good.



Any more comments on the Proposals banner though?

I do like the style of it. Though it strikes me as planning after a discussion has been reached, like we're working on a project to beautify Mushroom Kingdom after there is a proposal to beautify it.

I thought more about it as being the plan as a blue(green?)print that's being proposed (which is sometimes updated (slightly) during the proposals's run), rather than a thing that's created after the proposal, as that would require a proposal without plan (which frankly doesn't work).

Ugh, sorry I haven't been able to update this. I'll try and revise the OP at some point soonish. About the Proposals, I don't really see any issues with it. Maybe make the fill in the 'proposals' text a bit brighter.

It's funny I was about to bump this :P

Anyhow, I added a very slight background pattern to it, and made the text a bit brighter as per TPG.

Nice. Unless anyone has anything else to say, then I presume it's ready to upload. The source code for the Proposals header needs updating though, from '[[File:Proposals.png]]' to '[[File:Proposals.png|800px]]' for consistency with the Maintenance banner.

I didn't mean to jump in late, but may I make a further suggestion?

I would love to see the banner's "proposals" text be centered as much as possible, because I think it looks a bit out of balance in respect to the rest of MarioWiki:Proposals. The two large shapes could be placed on either side of the text instead (plus I keep misreading the shapes as spelling "TO" at a glance).

Here's a rough cut-paste edit as an example (any proper changes would probably need to be done from your source version):

I really would have liked to do that myself.

Will get to YK's suggestion.

Oh man, sorry for that. You can take over on uploading that banner; you made it after all, so I shouldn't have interferred.

I do agree it is more balanced that way. Shall I upload it this way?
