    1. [Editor Note: PLEASE VOTE IN SIDEBAR .. Thanks =)]

      if i had to pick one out of the selection as the best of the crop it would have to be: Banner Two made by Ferret Defunct.
      Kind of reminds me of the reflection plugin in compiz when you turn the cube lol X

    2. Darke says:

      Its a tossup between banner number 2 and number 4. But… I choose 4 because it was the first one that I noticed on the page!

    3. Eric Gillis says:

      I submitted quite a few banners for your consideration, blah. ^_^ From the email

      Hopefully they didn’t make it to your spam folder x_x;

    4. Anonymous says:

    5. Captchaface says:

      I like Banner Seven Created by Cristianbam most. It suits you the best

    6. Net4Life says:

      I like number 8, the colors merge well and i like the pics ๐Ÿ™‚

    7. Free_Programmer says:

      Where is my banner ???
      I send tow only for you ๐Ÿ™‚

    8. TeamRoa says:

      If you want to revamp your site with a cool banner I can help you. I have one I did for the contest but didn’t submit it. I still would like you to see it. I am a graphic designer and a friend of Marvin.

      I was thinking of making you a cool video intro for any video that you make. Please let me know what you want to do.

      Send me an E-mail or call me(Get my number from Marvin).

    9. brunopereira81 says:

      Oh man (woman, gurl, mam, Nixie…) Cant we vote on 2 banners???

      If we could I would choose 11 and 13.

      11 because it is so geeky its cool and respect you “I <3 llamas”.

      13 because looks really awesome.

    10. hi Nix! im gonna vote for banner 15 ๐Ÿ™‚ its just top one! see you around x x

    11. Silvernode says:

      I think banner two is the winner. Although I would like to see the “shadow” look more like a shadow if you know what I mean.

    12. iamqueball says:

      I like Banner #8 best. Lama and Real Picture. The real picture will have a lot of people clicking on it just because its’ a real picture of you (and we all know that you are a very attractive woman).

    13. Robert Saunders says:

      I’d say banner #14 is the cats meow.

    14. Alex says:

      2, 12 or 14 They are the best combination of professional, clean and you.

    15. Warpreactor says:

      I like Banner 8, very professional and clean.

    16. Torch says:

      I like 5 because it’s just so unusual, it would be a memorable image… but it’s more fractal-oriented than pixel…

      Otherwise, 12 or 14. 12 because it has a picture, 14 because it’s like a moving pixel, with the 3d and reflection effect. If there’s a decent arrangement to put a picture in it, would be even better.

    17. most cheap USB Cables are not very durable and it can cause errors in data transfers too “

    18. Plastic Pond says:

      ehternet cables are still the ones that i use for my home networking applications -*-

    19. you can always tell the quality of USB cables by looking at the thickness of the cable. thicker usb cables have higher quality :-.
