I don't think a smaller logo is even necessary. I think FANEDIT needs to really be the message of the banner. The site, the concept, the activity. Designers need to start thinking about the banner not as a poster for their fanedit, but as an artwork medium (that just happens to involve their fanedits). I think the most subtle banners are working the best. My favorites so far are:

Each one has a point of focus, but it isn't necessarily unobstructed, and as a banner takes on a more abstract concept. Hell, the Blue Skies From Mars banner doesn't even have a title, and has the central art mostly obscured, BUT, it looks great and we immediately know what edit it is from because of it's uniqueness.

I tried to take into account comments about the one focal point and expanded the focus a bit beyond the narrow bounds. Don't think I've seen one for this yet, and what this thread definitely needs is more Bruce Campbell:

ETA: Either my browser's going haywire, or somebody's experimenting with a REAL rotating banner! :-)

ETA2: Updated the original banner so that the blood is darker, as per Jorge's suggestion. I hope tinypic doesn't mess with the colors this time...

ok now you guys are killing it.

the auto changing banners is a neat idea, but man, slow down the changes! You can barely see what the banner/edit is before it changes again.

I'm experimenting right now so you're seeing a work in progress. I really don't want to turn the forums off while I tweak so you'll just have to suffer. Smile

"less is more" has left the building.

Since this thread is picking up, I didn't want a few of them to get lost so I put them together:
