    So everyone has probably noticed App Invasion's new banner now if your using a computer to view the site. I'm a little torn about it because it does adds a bit of color and character to the minimalist look for the site but I'm starting to think it's too flashy?

    To help decide, what better then to poll App Invasion's users? Feel free to give me some more detailed feedback by replying to this thread. Thanks!

    I feel as if it would look nice if you had it hidden and it showed up when you moused over home or any of the other tabs, that or mess with the positioning a little, not sure what else would work.

    I like it a lot. :D

    But my only problem with it is the Minecraft blocks look a little weird, but other then that, it's great!

    I get what your saying, but I'm not sure using those triggers are suitable for this banner. It might work for smaller gifs...

    Hmm, yeah I was trying to find an image to use to prop up the idol but I couldn't find any so I used the minecraft blocks....what about them do you think looks weird? Just the fact that they're so pixelated compared to the other images?

    It's a bit to small in my opinion. Maybe a clash of clans archer tower or angry birds tower, if you were to change it.

    Those actually aren't bad options, the only problem with the CoC tower is that it would have to be much bigger then the characters for it to scale correctly. That means I'll have to increase the height of the banner greatly or make the characters in the banner smaller.

    The angry birds tower on the otherhand may work...I'll try it out when I get some time on my hands.

    The position of the graphic slightly obscures the inbox tab when you have awaiting messages. Previously the red number indicating new messages stood out on the page making it easier for quick glance and reply.

    This is a legitimate concern and currently the only downside right now...I'm thinking over how to mitigate this...

    I didn't see this thread until now and I miss FlatAwesome, but I really do like the banner.
