Hi.

I've thougth about putting a banner server on my web page (when I release
new versions of some of my programs I get about 1000 mostly geeks
visits/day), nothing commercial just for promoting some (mostly free)
projects I would like people to know about. One of those projects is of
course D so the question is: Has anybody with more artistic/marketing
instinct that me created a banner (standart size) for this project? I could
try to do one in Gimp but as I say marketing instinct is not one of my
gifts, but I would accept short and shocking slogans as a base for one on
this thread.

Let's see what people come with :-)

Good idea. I'm not particularly artistic, but I took a stab at the challenge: http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/banner.html By the way, I don't know if 468x60 is a standard size, but I've made quite a few banners recently that size. -- Justin (a/k/a jcc7) http://jcc_7.tripod.com/d/

Nice! I've added it to my bannerserver (at the bottom of each page), for example: http://juanjoalvarez.net/animail

Juanjo: Here's a couple I came up with...the graphic one may be too simple and too large, but I gave it a try. :)) You're welcome to use them both if you'll like to...they're free to anyone. http://spottedtiger.tripod.com/D_Language/D_Banners_XP.html David L. ------------------------------------------------------------------- "Dare to reach for the Stars...Dare to Dream, Build, and Achieve!"

The "The race is on, turbocharge your development with D!!" is great, though the text is barely readable. I'd suggest changing the font / its props

Hehe I like the style :) I'll also put those banners (the thing supports banner rotation) and I'll make shortly a gallery with all the banners received and post the link here.

I've put a page with all the (currently three) banners people has posted

More banners please! :)
