Ok, a first go from all the games we seem to play here:

Ok, looking good so far. A couple of things...

If you alter the size of your window, you'll see that the banner can change size depending on the width of the window. We need to be careful with this. As far as I'm aware, this header (or whatever you wish to call it) divides into 3 separate pieces - I believe you can see exactly where it divides using the psd. Obviously we need to be careful with the size of "The Gaming Union", bearing this in mind.

I mentioned about perhaps using some of the 3D art created by members of this forum - some of it is fucking awesome, and it would be great to see it used here.

Finally, I'm guessing the style of font/text you are using is just temporary, because it doesn't really fit, or look that great yet. Maybe we can find a nice futuristic looking font - try http://www.1001freefonts.com/ - to use, and style in such a way that it fits with the background image, and the rest of the style.

I hope that was useful, and thanks for taking the time to do this Crook!

Meurig's done some lush stuff. He's pretty much in the business of it now, im sure he wont mind contributing to something thats helped him out in the past.

Plus it would also be a bit of a cry back to the old days when the boards were flooded with HW players. I know its not the same anymore, but you dont want to forget you roots.

I love the design tho m8, its absolutely beautiful.
