So welcome to SOTW 248! Now that I have hijacked SOTW, it's going to become BOTW for awhile; A.K.A Banner Of The Week. The idea is that the next series of contests will produce entries that the content team can use for article on the flash banners on the news page (that's the sliding images at the top of psu.com that feature articles). Keep in mind that there are 4 floating tabs on the left hand side of the banner so the the first 25% of the banner shouldn't feature any prominent features (head over to front page to see what I mean). Also, including a tab is not necessary but would be nice (doesn't need words, just to match banner, dimensions are 130x45).

Is it Ok? They will be very useful to the site in the coming weeks :) Better than just having normal sigs that just sit on some finished voting thread. Also, now 'y'all have a bigger canvas! Let's see how this one goes. :)

Bigger is not always better, but I'll be giving it a go. :)

We'll see how it goes.

Ghost, the OP for this thread is supposed to display the winning entry of the 246th SOTW, not the 247th. You aren't supposed to wait a week to set up the theme and entry threads or else it becomes "signature of every other week". :p

The deadline is Friday, so the poll goes up Saturday and the next theme and entry thread on Monday. Kwes and Fon know this too so you can ask them for help.

I'm going to extend this until next Friday. I'm sorry for the disruption but it's a busy time and I'd like this to run an extra week with it being at the top of the forums. So new deadline is the 15th.

Great! Keep in mind, "what would look good on front page, pimping an article PS4 related".

I'm really sorry guys, between RL and me trying to run a million projects at PSU at the same time, I haven't been very successful at this. However, there is only one entry so far, so I guess people don't have time right now?
