Here's your one-stop shop for NG linking banners! You know, for those cold, rainy nights when all you want to do is snuggle up on the couch with your laptop and pretty up the ol' website. For bonus points, you can log into your account and use your personal Fan-Net Link Code to get credit for all your hard work on the Fan-Net.
In March, 2006 one of our users, SlipperyMooseCakes, had the wonderful idea of a banner-building contest to replace the old 88x31 banners formerly used to promote NG. We were down with the idea, so SMC posted a thread about it in the Forums. We received a ton of responses!
Tom's personal favorites were the ones with animated sunbeams, by Bigexplosions. Unfortunately, users didn't vote for those as their favorite. He's stubborn, so Jeff here in the office prepped the refined versions listed above along with the winning entry.
Not to get sidetracked, here are the entries! The rankings for the top five are listed under their respective images!
One month later, Noob-Antichrist organized a second contest for the banners!
