    The only reason I know about this forum is because of Tyler (Thanks man, I didn't need my time or anything you know). Maybe we should create some small advertisements that any member could place on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube etc so that more people would become aware of the forum?

    Like for example (really just an example) for social media:

    [​IMG]

    (I just quickly took the styling from that thing I made earlier)

    And for YouTube/Streams maybe a 10 second video that quickly tells people to go for it?

    Would be nice to get some more people to post and create content around here ^^

    I would love to get more people to advertise for the site. So far I have been doing it during livestreams for the most part, as well as grabbing maple streamers.

    Apart from that, I've been learning SEO stuff so when people search for "MapleStory 2 Forum" Tria has a chance at showing up. :topkek:

    This is really great Goates! I like your logo too, would you mind sending me the PSD/Font name? :hearts:

    The logo is sadly not a font because I recreated it from the MS2 logo. But I'll put together a good PSD for you. Give me a moment.

    And here I thought you just did a really good job at mimicking the old MS2 logo with Photoshop.

    Oh well, still looks awesome!

    Well I did mimic it o3o. Basically I traced the letters of the MS2 logo and then applied the layer styles to each letter separately. Finally I added them all in a group and gave the group a stroke.

    Here's the link by the way: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2tgixowopowfozk/Tria%20PSD.psd

    It just takes time kiryuin, the more you practice the more progress you will make over time.

    Oh I don't mind it at all.

    Might be wise to adjust the drop shadow on it a little though. Could you pass me the PSDs of those images so that I can show what I mean?

    Try to never leave your drop shadow on the standard settings. It tends to look lazy and sloppy. In general the standard drop shadow is kind of ugly. It doesn't blend all that nicely. I set it to overlay myself and made it a little less soft.

    Those links are both the same so I could only adjust that one ^^'.

    Try not to get lazy with the cutting of your objects by the way! You can see the sloppiness on the horn a little. Wand tool is quick, but not as accurate.
