Just a couple of questions:

Are Flash banners allowed?
And, talking about animated GIFS, is there a size limit in KB?

I'm gonna start with an everyday, lightweight, non animated GIF, just to warm up. :)


Interesting. Maybe I'll try again this year...

Flash is fine. 50 K is the upper limit for the banners.

My first entry. Hope you like it. 23.8Kb of plain boring JPG. :)


Banner Entry

I'm afraid I couldn't match the "Comixpedia" font precisely...

It comes in at around 20.4 KB.

About that, is it ok to use the comixpedia logo that is here on the site? A bit of a bother to try and reproduce it and if I have to do it, it may differ somewhat (i.e.the font)

We're ok with using the logo image from the site for the purposes of this event-

Well, lets see if I can get this here flashthingymajig to work. Had lots of trouble with the fonts and ended up using comic sans because of it. Funny how things rarely turn out the way you imagined them.
Anyway, heres my contribution (sorry, dont know how to embed swf files in a forum post so you will just have to click a link):

"Pedia" is a very funny word out of context.
