I want to make a deal with you.
Dear NS2 Community,
This is not a project itself, it is to support a project I have been working on for some time.
I made the duplexgaming downloads database, which is quite frankly awful (despite being useful). I have been working on a re-make, with vastly improved styling and functionality (a lot of really, really exciting features to drive interest in NS2). Improving my PHP skills, a girlfriend and a new job have all made making progress difficult.
The new site will be seperate from the duplex site as the extra functionality simply doesnt work crammed into a clan site. I have now made significant headway in the functionality and layout, it is however completely missing 'A Grade' styling. I am capable of styling most of the site, but I would really love an amazing background image graphic. Something that WOW's people and makes them excited about NS2.The Deal
I need a superb, awesome and exciting background graphic for the site. In exchange for this I can offer several things: Hosting for a personal/clan site, a personalised email at the site, a small signature on the image (like a painting) and/or a mention on the site. Along with the chance for tens of thousands (at least) of people to view your work.(I can only use one person's work, but I really hope that some really skilled people will help me out!)
Briefly what I need is an exciting background image for the site. It should be 1920 pixels wide, height is flexible aslong as it fades to black at the bottom. I will let your imaginations go wild for what is on the images and how it is displayed. I personally imagine something similar to the Starcraft 2 forums (or as in the NS2 tweet Diablo 3s forum). But I am open to anything. I have produced some template files to show you clearly what I need, download links below:PSDJPEGPNG
