and I would like to request you add the ability to position custom backgrounds in the banner, because it was hell to get that Half-Life 2 image lined up properly.

This won't be too easy. I can let you change the coordinates it starts the cropping, but if you go through the trouble to figure out the coordinates, it'd be easier to just crop the part you want out yourself and upload it to imageshack.us or something. PHP alone isn't capable of making it easier. I'd have to either learn some advanced javascript (I'm a novice at javascript really) or switch the generator to Flash or Java. (Unfortunately, I don't know much Java... but I guess I can try to get a flash version running... I just haven't messed with Flash in a web environment much before)

Still, I'll think about it. Definitely won't be a new feature very soon though. Sorry. =(

No problem, I don't mind waiting.  I am a member of the calculator community, and I am still waiting for DCS7 ;)

Well, threw in the "More Info" page which is basically a "Why I Made This Program" and "Who Am I" section plus the copyright.
Nothing special, but it completes the site.

I'll keep thinking up ideas.

Maybe a way to do a different style of text?

Hm, any fonts you guys would want in particular? I just used this one because it's the standard for userbars.

Heh I don't personally have any preferences, because I do like the one you use, but it was the only thing that came to mind that you could possibly have options for

Well, I'm taking the day off of coding. Assuming I get some ideas, I'll continue tomorrow.

Until then... I'm off for some DDR and FFXIII.

(I should start playing FFXIII... my bro bought it when it came out and sometimes plays on my Xbox Live account, but I also need to finish Star Ocean for PSP... I tend to not play often since I'm not a huge gamer. For example, last night I played one game of Starcraft with Cooliojazz then went to bed an hour later)

Unfortunately I don,t like ODST really :(, to me it was just not Halo anymore. I prefered Halo with master chief. My favourites are Halo 2 and 3. I might play sometimes, altough I am not really in a Halo mood lately x.x

The reason I talked about ODST is because it has the Mythic disc (its called Mythic, right?) which has all the maps and such.

oh yeah that, I'm not sure if it's mythic, cuz it seemed to have a bunch of other maps too. I usually use that disc now to play Halo 3 multiplayer. I still kinda regret having paid $69.99 for ODST tho x.x (had I known I wouldn't like it that much I would have waited until it drops at like $39.99)

Anyway back on topic, I was wondering if gradients would be easy to implement in custom background userbars?


Also, another worry I had: you use the same fonts as the userbars.com site. Wouldn't there be risks that you get in trouble for copyright infrigments or something?

Actually, it's the same font as almost every userbar site out there.
Also, it's a free font available for use anywhere.

As for the gradients in the custom BG userbars, what do you mean? I'd assume that you could make a image that's a gradient then upload and use that like any other custom background, unless you mean something else and I'm completely wrong. (It happens. A lot.) ^^;
