This shouldn't come as a big surprise: I can't continue to run this community anymore. I'm not around as often as I used to be and I know it's only going to get worse. I'm giving up all my communities except stockicon and nexticon, simply because I don't need to keep to a schedule at those two communities.

Let me know if you want to take over this community or any of my other communities.
(Comments are screened.)

PS
I had a great time and it's been lovely to see all you guys and your creations. :)

(So sorry I've been MIA. I'm visiting my family and I thought I would be able to find some time to update. Alas I haven't had the opportunity to do so until now.)

We could really use some more votes over at Challenge 134 - Voting.

Please Vote Here

Thanks and enjoy your weekend!

[{{Banner Maker"s Announcement}}]
Dear mod neke and members, I hope you don't get too disappointed but I'm going to retire from banner making for this community. I'm going to spend more time doing stuff for my own icontests & maybe actually making icons so that leaves less time for banner-making.
Hopefully, somebody else will volunteer to take over - it's not totally un-fun - you get to play with fonts and textures. And who doesn't like fonts & textures?

If anyone wants to make their own banners or make banners for this community here is an .xcf (GIMP) document.
Download here.
It includes all text layers for placements from First Place to Best Crop. It also has a few textures you can play with for practice. It looks like this:
imagebam.com

Before you open it you'll need to download the Bebas Neue font which is free from Dharmatype.

Otherwise, members in the communities listed will make you nice banners at your request.

custom_banners
cb_overflow
banner_contest

Okay, that's the end of my melodramatic announcement. :)
