Okay... before we even begin, I have to open with a preface.  No, I am not returning.  No, I won't return either.  The only reason I am here is to preform my duties as one of the Admins in Golden Sunrise.  I ask that any personal grudges or vendetta from either direction be left out of this conversation - I intend for this to be strictly business.

As part of my duties in Sunrise, I have been redoing the interface and icons for Sunrise, giving it a new look that fits with a more modern feel.  As part of that aesthetic, I have been redoing affiliate banners to match.  Here is an example from our other affiliates:

The affiliate for GSAR will be of similar make, as well as the one we will use to represent ourselves (I will share this with you when we figure it out - we are currently letting our affiliates have first pick).  However, I have not been here in over two years, so I do not know the current leanings or trends of the site, and would not know how to represent you in a respectable fashion.  As such, I'd like to ask you which character from either series (GBA or DD) that you would like to use to represent your site in our affiliates section.

I would say Ivan (not just because of bias) since we're pretty chill most of the time and don't talk as much, but I think the obvious choice nowadays would be...and I hate admitting this...

....Garet >.>

Mainly because of the dominance of Draconis (which is entirely unbalanced [although irrelevant]).

That is all.

I think - and hope - that everyone has progressed to the point where they won't feel the need to turn this into an unproductive thread, but I'll add my voice to that just in case.

I've compiled a list of the only acceptable options on imgur. Let the voting commence.

Well, the site is basically a hangout these days. I think Ignatius gives some good guidelines for how to represent the current community, but maybe it would make more sense to pick it based on how the site is designed (i.e. what it's intended to be). That said, I'm not sure how either of those would translate into a character representative, and don't have much of an opinion myself.

I think it'd be good if we had a djinn for an icon. Maybe a venus djinn to match our brown color scheme, or a mars djinn for our draconian bias.

I cast my vote for Merc's Venus Djinni idea.

Both Flint an Pewter have DD portraits I can use.  If you want to use Venus djinn, you'll have 3 choices between those and the GBA venus portrait.

I really like the Venus Djinni idea as well. All the Venus Djinn from the first two games look identical, so I vote to use the GBA image to keep from pinning us to a particular characteristic or effect.

That might actually work. I think that idea may be the best one.

Yeah, I agree with Ig on using the GBA sprite. Besides, it looks like all the banners made so far have used GBA sprites, so we might as well match.

edit: lmao i'm dumb, totally missed that matthew and (maybe?) the DD kraden sprite were used. bye

Only two of them were made with GBA sprites, and even then only because I had no DD portraits to take them from.  Aeiou treats Jenna like a god, and there aren't any lemurian portraits for The Lost Waters, so I defaulted to GBA since I had something that worked for them.

As for the Garet comment early on, there's actually 3 versions to pick from for him - young, GBA, and porn-stache Garet.

As for all of these, I am open to recolor requests, so if you wanted (for some reason) a green Venus djinn, I could do that for you.  Or if you wanted a different background color, I could to that too.

Edit:  Here's the three venus djinn options I mentioned earlier, for reference:

Here are my two cents. Can you make one icon with Hama (Ivan's Sister) and add the label  What?'s Waifu. <3

Other than that I think it is all good. I like the first one the most. The third one reminds me of Dave.

Top Djinn gets my vote as well.

I'd say the middle djinni, but the palette looks too grayed out. Top one it is for me.

Very well.  We will use that as GSAR's affiliate banner.

For future reference, the Sunrise Admins settled with the following:

Please use this for the Sunrise affiliate banner in the future.

With that, I'm out.

If I understand properly what you're meaning by "banner" in this situation (it's entirely possible I don't), we don't really have such things, and I doubt we'd use that one anyway because it doesn't match the rest of the site layout. I'm sure we'll keep your preference in mind if such a situation arises, though.

Now this is a pleasant surprise.

@Ignatius; She would say something along the lines of "Okay, keep it on standby just in case." and add a little :3c to show peace and love toward all things.

You're entitled to your opinion, Catman, but if you have a beef with Rolina, take it up elsewhere. I don't want to see it on GSAR, especially not in a thread whose explicitly stated purpose asks that personal matters not be dredged up, and where a site administrator has already asked people not to do what you're doing. First and final warning on the matter.
