    Hello everyone! Recently, the Skyblock Discord has reached Level 2 Nitro Perks, meaning that we have unlocked a server banner and an animated logo. We would like to give you the opportunity to contribute to the Skyblock Discord by creating a unique server banner and an animated logo. We will be accepting entries from all members of our discord, and your creation will be featured there for everyone to see.

    You can enter the competition by replying to the thread with the format below. Your submission will not be considered if your entry does not follow the format & criteria. Staff Members are allowed to enter the competition. Our judges will not be allowed to enter the competition. Please remember that we judge off of the designs and not who made the design.

    Format:
    Your Discord name & tag number (e.g Name#0000):

    Server Banner (if applicable):
    Animated Logo (if applicable):


    Criteria:
    As the new creations will be featured on the Skyblock Discord, we would like to give you some guidance for your designs. Here are a few things to keep in mind.

    Your design must include:
    • Some representation of the Skyblock Discord logo (you can be creative and make a new default island from scratch that resembles the current island)
    • The size of your banner design must be at least 960x540 in a 16:9 ratio. The size of your animated logo design must be 512x512.
    • You must be a member of the Skyblock Discord.

    Competition Information:
    Entries will no longer be accepted on July 30th and winners will be announced by August 1st.
    Only one entry for each banner and animated logo per person.
    • Your design must be appropriate.
    • No plagiarising other designs.
    • If you enter you agree that the winning design belongs to the Skyblock Discord server.

    Prize:
    Our Skyblock Staff Team will choose one banner and one animated logo design to be used for our Skyblock Discord. Winner(s) of the competition will be credited for their winning design(s) in #announcements. Winners will also receive a role called "Competition Winners" that will appear online like so:

    Only reply to this thread with your entries or questions about the competition. Any other replies will be removed.

    Thank you to everyone who has supported the Skyblock Discord over the past few years. We are very appreciative of your contributions and we hope to have your support for our server in the future.

    I know that the winners are going to be announced at the end of July, but I was wondering if this could be incorporated right now, in honor of the 4th of July. If no, it's fine. It kind of looks bad. Untitled design (1) copy 2.png

    Just wondering if anyone knows any free animation/gif making software. My Photoshop subscription ended recently so I'm out of ideas! Many thanks. :)

    As a person who is, as the French say, le broke, I can suggest resources which are free. ;)
    I also have no admin access (darn those admins), so I had to find free software for browser.

    For making gifs, I use Animated GIF Maker
    For photo editing, I use Photo Editor : Pixlr E - free image editing tool
    For screen recording, I use xbox game bar (rip if you have mac)

    Thanks Agent! This is very useful :)

    edit: I also upscaled this to 512x512 for other people to use :)


    This looks... hectic if I'll be honest.

    For photo editing, I use Paint.NET - Free Software for Digital Photo Editing. It's honestly the free version of photoshop - and I have Adobe Photoshop CC 2020, and I still prefer to use Paint.net (unless I need to select things, Photoshop's quick select tool is so much superiour).

    Thanks Boss :)

    Disturbing development: I didn't save my banner and I didn't start my logo.

    RIP me.

    Your Discord Name & Tag Number: Craney#5010 (Nickname - Craney)
    Server Banner: [​IMG]
    Animated Logo: Bare in mind the gif will play once, and then the text will stay centred as this is how Discord Icons work.

    I’d recommend 5-10seconds as discord’s plays the gif when a user hovers over the Icon for the server. Usually, they won’t have their cursor on it for more than 10seconds, and as they only play once, it’s better to keep it short and sweet

    We're going to keep our server banner the same until the winner of this competition is chosen. We also want to avoid banners and/or animated logos that only relate to one country as we want to include everyone.
