Banner Archive

The My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic community has churned out some incredible artwork from enormously talented artists. The banner selection on Fimfiction is just a small selection of what I consider to be some of the defining examples of artistic quality its members can produce. If you'd like to suggest a piece of artwork for a banner, send me a pm and if I think it's high enough quality I might use it, but I'm pretty picky and need artwork that works on the site so please don't be offended if I'm not interested in what you send!

If you see a banner you'd like you use permanently on the site, just click it below!

>>717 Cool, cheers :scootangel:

#128 · 3d, 12h ago · · ·

>>714 Me too, but some have workarounds, like this one if you really want them back:

Just a word of caution though, those methods aren't directly supported by the site and works by modifying the layout displayed in your browser.

#127 · 3d, 19h ago · · ·



I kid, I kid.

It's a logical and ultimately acceptable decision. But I still really miss 'em =\

#126 · 4d, 9h ago · · ·

>>660 It was eating up bandwidth, so they removed it to make the server deal with a lighter load.

#125 · 1w, 5d ago · · ·

--- Edited: Well... darn... honestly, I liked the pony banners, I also liked the idea of artists who enjoyed the site and ponies and supported it via art....

Whatever, still sad the banners aren't used anymore.... Thanks for at least explaining it, even though it's in Site Updates that I found the reasoning... should probably make a link up at the top of this page so other ponies like myself don't grumble in sadness at their favorite art pieces not appearing up at the top of the page like a happy greeting saying "Welcome, time to read a new chapter of your favorite story here, on your favorite site! :D " ........... sigh....

Why have banners been discontinued?

#123 · 3w, 14h ago · · ·

>>513 How Does One Get In Contact With Different Communities? You Guys Have Seemingly Removed That Particular Search Option. Also Why Have You?

#122 · 6w, 23h ago · · ·


So did Sollace. [Excelsior!]

#121 · 6w, 5d ago · · ·

>>514 PiercingSight figured out a workaround right here

#120 · 7w, 3h ago · · ·

>>513 damn. I hoped there would be at least an option that lets you keep one or more, like the colors of the words or background..

#119 · 7w, 5h ago · · 3 ·


It is not, unfortunately. Banners are gone for good.

#118 · 7w, 5h ago · · ·

>>421 btw, is it somehow possible to still use banners?

#117 · 7w, 5d ago · 7 · ·

Rest In Peace Beautiful Banners, 2011-2014. Now we have to deal with a hideous shade of green. Couldn't you have least picked like a pony color or something? Blue? Purple maybe?

#116 · 8w, 3d ago · 1 · ·

Where are all the banners I am so sad :fluttershysad::raritycry:

#115 · 8w, 3d ago · · ·

Oh banners, oh banners. Where for thou art my banners.

Cum bak

#114 · 8w, 6d ago · · ·


Just stop by Knighty's blog posts :facehoof: ... he explains that, while they look cool, they take up space that could otherwise be used for something else. they left blank spaces on both sides of the website and they're pony related content.... this wonderful fanfiction website with all of its features may be branching out into being a fanfiction website for all fandoms (which is fantastic news considering the features that fimfiction has that archive of our own and don't have *cough* read later and overall better organization and overly-graphic content :twilightblush: actually being allowed *cough*) (thats if i read the blog posts correctly:twilightsheepish:)

What happened to the banners?

I couldn't find anything about them.

#112 · 9w, 2d ago · · ·

I'm gonna miss these, but after reading up on the reasoning behind the change: I agree with it.... the pros wayyyyy outweigh (outneigh, ha! pun) the fantastic artwork you people selected as banners. I'm just here to say you all have great tastes in art...... :fluttercry: so beautiful.

#111 · 9w, 4d ago · · ·

>>422 the bar was always colourised. Changed depending on which you picked.

#110 · 9w, 4d ago · · ·

>>405 already was one.

#109 · 9w, 4d ago · · ·

>>421 Oh, you wound me, Mon Modérateur. In any case, I was really just talking about the banner area, not the entire site.

Anyway, I'm happy that the bar has at least been colorized now. The black was too harsh of a contrast to the white background before, and didn't really match up to the rest of the site's style. It's a little thing, but it's nice all the same.

#108 · 9w, 4d ago · 4 · 5 ·


If you think this site is "black and white" then you might want to get your monitor and/or vision checked.

#107 · 9w, 5d ago · 1 · ·

So how do I use a banner again???

#106 · 9w, 5d ago · · ·

Primus damn it Knighty... :pinkiesad2: This new site update is making my Firefox freeze up...

#105 · 9w, 5d ago · 6 · 1 ·

I think the fact that this is still here is a promising sign. Perhaps a toggle option will be added later on for the people that like the banners and the ones that like the new system. Every one will be happy then.:pinkiehappy:

#104 · 9w, 6d ago · · ·

Everyone flipping out in the comments here about the banners being removed, and I'm just here to watch Gob. :twilightoops:

#102 · 9w, 6d ago · · ·

>>383 It's even worse for me, because firefox, a browser I've never used before but have to use for many reasons, froze after it loaded the new site .-. On one hand I'm glad I didn't break anything, on the other NU MUH PRETTY BANNERS!

#101 · 9w, 6d ago · · ·


Knighty made a pretty, pretty blog post about why he did it

#100 · 9w, 6d ago · 9 · 1 ·

A site for MLP fanfiction (poppy bright Technicolor horse land) is now mostly black and white?

Because it's totally not a massively jarring change to go straight to "black and white and nothing all over" after having those distinct, colorful bars (and, optionally, pretty fanart) at the top of the page for quite a while now.

:facehoof: Oookay then.

One question, why did you think it was a good idea to hire Maud Pie as a design consultant?

#99 · 9w, 6d ago · · ·


I do follow him, but his blog posts get lost in the hundreds of other posts I get a day. On an average day I'll have 75-80 new updates to look at. Plus, I've scanned his page. Couldn't find anything mentioning banners being taken down. Mind pointing me to this mention?

EDIT: found it. It's not listed on the main page, but it's there. Had to look through some comments to find a link. I seriously never would have found it unless I knew it was there. :trixieshiftright:

#98 · 9w, 6d ago · · 4 ·



If you guys followed knighty, you would know that he mentioned this a few days ago.

#97 · 9w, 6d ago · · ·

I keep clicking 'Use Selected  Banners',  but nothing's happening!:raritydespair::raritycry:

#96 · 9w, 6d ago · 11 · ·


A day may come when Knighty explains what he's doing before he changes the site on us and panic ensues, but it is not this day.

#95 · 9w, 6d ago · · ·

Once upon a time there was the one reading rainbow banner... that time has passed. Once upon a time having a slideshow of banners was new and interesting... that time has passed. Once upon a time... we had banners... that time has now passed.

Reasoning and logic aside, a large amount of home died here...

#92 · 9w, 6d ago · · ·

Oh, good, it's not just me. Thought I'd clicked on something and screwed sh*t up like I usually do.

#91 · 9w, 6d ago · · ·

Nooo! You can't take the Shady Trough from me! It was where everypony knew my name!

#90 · 9w, 6d ago · · ·

Salutes and rides the slowly sinking ship Roseluck banner into the abyss as small violins play in the background.

It's been an honor using you all these months.

>>377 I found out the hard way.

Now I'm going to read something adorable because I just watched a video about famous stalkers, it's the middle of the night, and I really have to pee.


#86 · 9w, 6d ago · · ·


That is where you would be disappointed. I do not write anything, not even blogposts.

It's just... I truly believe that there are different types of people and each has its own strong and weak points. So. I am pretty sure that I am not any good in writing, so I don't even try.

#85 · 9w, 6d ago · · ·

>>375 Yeah; I was an immature bitch, too.

I guess I should be the one apologizing; I was combative and belligerent. I should have just asked you to tone down the bluntness.

Glad to see it's all cool now. :twilightsmile: Might read some of your stories to see if you write my kind of jam.

#84 · 9w, 6d ago · · ·


Hi. Yeah, I know that it is pretty much water under the bridge right now and you said that you would not post any comment here, but... Well. I just don't feel right when there's something unfinished, and to me this argument IS unfinished.

Alright. I am sorry for the insults that I threw at you. They were at the very least undeserved. I did not expect such reaction to come out of me, but I had a bad day and did what I should not.

My apologies.

#83 · 10w, 10m ago · · ·

>>370 Well, that was gonna be my last post related to whatever that was anyway so I didn't get stuck in a toil of random shit, but mkay.

>>364 Considering it happened a good while ago, I have long since ceased to care about that argument.

P.S. The reason I don't have any social skills is because I'm autistic.

And since I've made no progress in improving my social skills since I was 9, your last few bits of advice probably definitely won't do anything.

#80 · 10w, 13h ago · 1 · ·


Yo, comrade friendo, maybe its about time we calm down eh? Holy hell, the guy was just talking to you. I won't lie, throwing out your IQ doesn't actually help your case. At least Grenader wasn't trying to throw his intellectual penis size in your face. And there's such a thing as connotation. In case you're too dense to grasp what I'm telling you here, that's the implied meaning of a word. Hes calling you a retard to highlight your flawed reasoning, and your over-reaction to being told some simple information. On top of that, you mock the invective properties of his insults, and then say  you use something as base and primal as pornography to counter? Perhaps you should go back to high school, or perhaps (judging strictly on your diction and reasoning skills) you are still in high school? Regardless of your education and overall intelligence, you should learn some social skills, remember exactly what it is that this 'fandom' is meant to stand for, and then come back.
