    Want to be on Dtoid's Front Page?

    Hey guys,

    I'm one of those weirdos that writes for Dtoid and isn't named Sterling or Holmes for some odd reason. I'm here because I need a hero. A Photoshop hero, to be exact!

    If you can make me these headers, I'll happily use it for two upcoming features on the front page and fully credit you. I'd much rather proudly display the community's efforts than some random Flickr user. Here's what I need:

    Fez Dude: A hand holding a magnifying glass over Fez guy, who has a question mark over his head.

    Kickstarter: I need something for a feature series I'm doing on Kickstarter. Maybe a desktop computer, with an green, ASCII "$"-symbol against a black background on its monitor? Feel free to try out whatever on this one. Tony Ponce suggested kicking a car.

    Feel free to go crazy with either. You know our site, so you know we'll post just about anything on the front page. Image should be a 620 x 350 .jpg just like all of our headers on the front page. The sooner this gets done, the better.

    Let's see what you guys got!

    Any more details on the Kickstarter series, or do you want a more vague general Kickstarter thing?

    It's about analyzing whether certain gaming Kickstarters will succeed or fail to make their money.

    Fez one isn't really worth going into but I guess I will anyway. It's about other anticipated indie games that have fallen off the map over the years.

    He's the Ali that isn't D, but I don't hold that personal flaw against him.

    He's the me everyone gets confused with, including El Jefe but I don't hold that against him.

    I'm actually surprised no one has used an image for Kickstarter from the old BBC program of the same name. I'm sure Jim Sterling must know about it...



    Used to be the highlight of my day watching that show after Newsround.

    Sounds like a good way to earn a Creative Endeavors badge for those who don't have it yet.

    See, now we both look bad 'cause you took the same hand from google image searches.

    Actually, I did mine this morning, so if anything you accidentally copied mine.

    I also think you're the one who gave our position away to the imperials.

    Dolphin, your "art" is fine, even though there's no such thing.

    Pfft, haven't you seen my forum badge? I've been on the Front Page, plenty-o-times, son. I'm like the Front Page Master. YEAH! YEEEEERGH!

    Sorry, what was this about again?

    Aw, man. I can't Photoshop for shit. Hence why I'm always taking half naked pictures of myself. Wait a second, how did I get the Creative Endeavors badge, again? Please don't tell me it was for the half naked pictures.

    It was for your birthday pic for Niero that you put a lot of effort into, I think.
