    If Grimsby Town had "Harry The Haddock" as a mascot and Chelsea supporters were actually banned from bringing Celery to Stamford Bridge* then "Pizza John" starts to look perfectly normal. As it is, I've already backhacked the Pizza John banners into FIFA'04 - which I'm still running a decade later.

    Early on in the days of Sydney FC (I currently live in the exiled convict colony of the Antipodes), there was an advert on the telly for a particular brand of bread. At one match when Sydney played a team sponsored by said bread company, about 2000 of us at the home end started singing the song from the advert and flinging slices of bread around the stand, from loaves which we had brought to the ground for that purpose.

    Suffice to say for the rest of the season, there were announcements telling us that fireworks, signal flares and "excessive amounts of perishable food" were banned by stadium management.

    I don't know if you guys have Aldi near you. If you don't, it's a chain of grocery stores that emphasize low prices (I know they all do, but these guys are super serious about it). It's one of the few places where you can get a gallon of milk for $2 in Chicago.

    Anywho, Aldi is a sponsor for the Chicago Fire. As part of the sponsorship, at every home game they offer a deal where if the Fire's goalkeeper Sean Johnson makes three or more saves, everyone gets a coupon for a free gallon of milk. As a result, every time he makes a save folks in the Harlem End (where the home supporters stand) start chanting "Milk! Milk! Milk! Milk!" and then cheer deliriously if/when he makes his third save.

    Incidentally, the commercials he did for Aldi are amazing.

    I tried adding the TSWGO logo into the other logo, but it was significantly lower quality, and I don't have a great way to put the images online somewhere to link them here. I know a way that might improve the quality a bit, but it might take a while before I can do it. An ideas about getting the image up?

    @Gerenjie,

    The solution I'm using for file hosting is a little bit complicated. I'm hosting my own web site using Windows Azure and have deployed my files there. I initially tried 4shared, but I wouldn't recommend it, as the whole site is rather spammy and they shut down serving large-size images after only a few views.

    @MichaelDiegoGil,

    You're close. The only thing you're missing is that you need to press the "Show Source" button in the editor before typing HTML.

    HTH,
    Clay

    Yeah, there should be just one person we should send the pictures to and that one person should email it to Hank and John. Lets Vote! I vote @claycompton he knows what he is doing. We should all work together on this.

    If you want to link to an externally hosted image, here's what you do:

    1. Scroll down to Leave A Comment.

    2. Click on the Show Source icon at the top of the comment box. It's the second icon from the right. IT looks like two pointy brackets- <> - on a blank page.

    3. Paste this into the comment box:

    <img src="http://s160.photobucket.com/user/1culapx/media/DFTBA.jpg.html">

    I used the URL because it's the most recent link you used, you can replace it with other links as long as you leave everything else (including the quotation marks) in tact.

    4. Press 'Post Comment.'

    5. Go make yourself a cup of tea.

    Here's what the finished product should look like:

    @un_beknownst No, it doesn't. It has a insert file that links to other websites. If I'm wrong about being able to upload pictures, please tell me so I can.

    Some of my thoughts on the banners: Regardless of the fact that John said "3 feet by 16 feet" within the announcement video, I'm practically certain that the stadium banners are measured in metric because it's England. This implies that the actual size of the banners are "1 meter by 5 meters" which is nice and close to 3' x 16' but the proportions are slightly different. For the people that are developing images, I think that 1:5 proportions are a lot easier to work with than 3:16.

    For the ease of everyone, I feel that shared images should be 216 x 1080 (1" x 5" @ 72 dpi) which is fairly straight-forward set up in image editing software and fits well on people's screens when exported.

    Here's a graphic showing the relationship of the two sizes:

    I don't think these are going to become banners lol. John hasn't said anything.

    ahh much better.  no pesky words.  You guys can insert your favorite sayings into it if you have the desire such as "Friendly ankle hugging" or "context is everything."  Or you can ignore it.

    Just a thought:

    Why does a banner at the ground need to advertise AFC Wimbledon? The people there... are already there.
    That sounds to me like trying to catch a bus once you're already on it.

    I don't think we're advertising for AFC Wimbledon.  We need a theme for the banners and use... well you know... the club we are advertising for.  Although one doesn't need to add the club, it gives an easy, eye catching template to place ads on.

    Aren't we advertising AT Kingsmeadow? That was the impression I got from the opening post.

    In the last Vlogbrothers video John announced a plan to have banners/ads made by Nerdfighters at AFC Wimbledon's(aka the Wimbly-Womblys) stadium.

    Indeed. There were some designs in the beginning that advertized things like the Foundation to Decrease World Suck that were really onto something. But since then it's been mostly stuff that seems intended for fan Tumblrs more than anything else.

    I think there's a real opportunity to do something cool with these ad boards and I'd hate to see it go to waste.

    And I though our Aldi adverts were funny.

    He hasn't said exactly what he wants the ads to be for...
  • gerenjiegerenjie Posts: 64 ✭✭
    So... Does anyone know which ones are becoming the ads?

    See this video - adverts are in place:
    Likewise, I've changed the adboards in my copy of FIFA'14 too.
