If we are going to get this forum really cooking.

We should atleast give it a push in the right direction and this temporary 2 minute photo shop job of a banner just wont do it any more.

So if any of you chaps have 5 or 10 minutes free time and can cook up a really tasty new banenr graphic, that would be a super help.

I will try myself this week.

And if we can put together something really nice by the end of this week.

Then we can sent it off to the ultimaker gods and ask for the update ....

    Doesn't work very well with a smaller monitor, it also looks a bit messy. I think the current one is better then yours...

    The "user forum" text is clearly pasted on later. The JOIN US with the robot is a bit funny, but makes it messy. And the ultimaker itself, it is the "target" of the forum, but I think it looks silly at that scale and location.

    A logo should be good looking, but not crowded, and 'merge' with the rest of the forum style. Example of another forum:

    I would:

    * Put in only 1 robot (I would opt for the black one, at the size you have it)

    * Remove the "fast, highdetail,portable, affordable..." text.

    * Put "User forum" at that place, maybe with the same shadow type as the old text. But NOT red.

    * Remove the JOIN US!
