    Default The Banner thread

    As an 80s fanboy, I just thought I'd register my approval at the marvellous new banner, and also the general 'starfield' revamp to the forum. Good work, Pip!!

    Where's Peter Howell when you need him?

    Good work, Pip - the Sid Sutton of Planet Skaro.

    The pattern isn't seamless though, you can tell where one bit ends and the other begins, damn my monitor... I'll have to revisit that...

    Ta for the nice comments, I'm glad you all appreciate my hard work

    I just like to say that the stars behind where it says 'Planet Skaro' are from the Tom Baker title sequence, whereas the ones behind the pictures in Andrew Curnow's signature are from the Davison sequence!!!

    I know, it's sad, but you would have been disappointed if I hadn't said it!!!
    If you think this is sad you should have seen the post I did about Mr Curmow's signiture pictutes on the old ezboard site!!!!!

    I really should get out more!!!

    Oh yeah.....excellent banner Pip!!!

    I'd be even more impressed if you could tell me which Tom Baker story I took the screencap from

    It's where I'd have got the starfield from if I were you. Best quality version released so far of course

    I have a vague memory of having asked this back on the old PS, but I can't remember the answer, so... How can you tell the difference between the Baker & Davison starfields, Andrew/Ian? I'm well-impressed that you can, but I just wonder how? Or are they in fact totally different but I've just always been too wrapped up in myself to notice?

    I predict you will get a reply starting with "Warning - technical explanation ahead!"......

    Is it not the case that the S18 starfield is a brighter colour - eg the red, yellow and blue bits as seen in Pip's striking banner?

    I fear we're heading towards an embarassing "It's just you who can't tell the difference, Curnow" scenario...

    Yeah right

    We should have a competiton sometime: "Guess the title sequence"

    I think Andrew might have a battle on his hands to win that one...

    Ahh, but was it the EastEnders titles with the dome or before the dome. Or when it was all black and white apart from the blue river Thames?

    There was a time when I was in America and a Doctor Who episode came on, straight after a set of adverts and with no 'announcement'. It was a Tom Baker episode (pre Season 18).
    Just as the logo was moving down the time tunnel I said
    "I bet it's Revenge of The Cybermen".

    It was...............even I don't know how I did that!!!! - it's not even an 80's titles sequence and there's no stars to count or anything!!!
