Toni: I totally agree with everything you said. I think I'll remake that banner soon, see if I can make it look not quite so bleh-ish, now that I (sort of) know what I'm doing, and with your advice.
Maple: Yay! I'm glad you like it. I agree, on seeing the fairytales banner on here, I thought that too. I wanted it to be kind of... not very noticeable, I guess, when I was making it, but I think it would like better if it was clearer, yeah.
