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!

That's a wrong info Alexstrasza gave you, the banners can be returned with a little workaround. Follow these steps:




Install the browser addon Stylish from here:

https://userstyles.org/

Then install my style that brings the banners back:

https://userstyles.org/styles/108589/return-banners-to-fimfiction-net


The Cutie Mark Crusaders Banner is set on default, because it's my favourite one that I use all the time, but you can just replace the link to the banner, as the banners are all still stored there (for now):

https://www.fimfiction.net/?view=page&page=banner_credits

Unfortunately, there is no working link to the individual images to paste it into the code for the userstyle, but if you make a right-click on anywhere on the site you should find an option to display the source code of the site. Click on it and scroll down in the window that opens until you find the several banners listed together with their address.

Just in case you can't find them for some reason, I list them here too:

Copy the address of the banner of your choice either from this comment or from the code of the site, open the style in the Stylish addon in your browser, click on "Edit" and replace the second URL behind "[url=https://"]https://"[/url] in the code here, which is the URL of the banner I use, with the URL of your banner:

background-image: url("http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2014/357/b/0/old_fimfiction_net_logo_by_cmc__scootaloo-d8avtxh.png"), url("https://static.fimfiction.net/images/custom_banners/solar_group.jpg?2");

Then just click on "Save", reactivate the style if necessary and you have the banner of your choice back on the top of the site! :pinkiehappy:

The style also includes the old logo of FIMFiction.net, for more aesthetic pleasure than knighty's new one.

It is also recommended that you download the banners for yourself, as knighty will probably take down the banners one day completely and it's best to have them around for yourself, just in case.

Have Fun with the style that restores FIMFiction.net at least partially back to it's former glory! :twilightsmile:

If you're interested in userstyles in general or if knighty should make another ugly or inconvenient change to FIMFiction.net, check out the Userscripts group to find lots and lots of userstyles to make FIMFiction.net look like the way YOU want, so that knighty can't force unwanted design changes on you:

You're not the only one. But knighty wants to turn FIMFiction.net from a MLP: FiM fiction site to a general fiction site, so according to him, the pony banners have to go because of that.

You're not the only one. A lot of users here suffer under knighty's terrible ideas.

He removed the banners because he plans to turn the site from a MLP: FiM fanfiction site to a general fiction site and according to him, the pony banners must go because of that.

For now, you can get the pony banners back, though. Install the browser addon Stylish from here:

https://userstyles.org/

Then install my style that brings the banners back:

I wish I knew. I'm new to PC games.

#137 · 4w, 6d ago · · ·

>>849 Sadly the only way we could get it back would be if everyone had high speed internet and unlimited data. Until that happens never we probably will just have to come to this page.

But speaking of internet.. Could you possibly know why I have such high ping in call of duty world at war pc? I have 50 megabytes a second download, 26 upload. Yet I get a ping of 150-200 while playing when in every other game I get ping of 20-50. It is wireless connection but that doesn't affect the other games.

#136 · 5w, 17h ago · · ·

>>782

Sadly, we will miss them. I had a pheonix to look at... it was great when I had bad days and felt like binge reading.

>>837

I agree. A monument to remind those who used banners of the good times before inspiration came from elsewhere.

Special to those who remember and a legend for those who never had the banners.

#135 · 5w, 2d ago · · ·

>>838 The reason he got rid of them was because every time a page loads, the images has to be downloaded to a browser's cache. With the amount of people and frequent page switches, it takes its toll on the bandwidth. However, since the banner credits section doesn't get too much attention, it wouldn't use up too much bandwidth. But yeah, this page might disappear in the future.

#134 · 5w, 2d ago · · ·

>>837 I just think it takes up space, which is the reason Knighty got rid of them in the first place.

#133 · 5w, 2d ago · · ·

>>809 Might just be a junk page. Though I do hope they don't remove it. It kinda serves as a monument in a way.

#132 · 6w, 2d ago · · ·

In all seriousness, I have a question:

Since the staff has basically gotten rid of the banners, why is this page still here?

#131 · 6w, 6d ago · 2 · ·

>>756 *sniffles* Well now I don't see Nightmare Celestia everytime I open the site... lol. I had that while banners existed because believe it or not, Celestia is on the bottom of my favorites list.

#128 · 8w, 4d ago · · ·

>>714 Me too, but some have workarounds, like this one if you really want them back: http://www.fimfiction.net/blog/419886/fixing-the-happening-adding-banners-back-to-fimfiction

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 · 8w, 4d ago · 1 · ·

>>712

...Quitters.

I kid, I kid.

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

#126 · 8w, 4d ago · · ·

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

#125 · 9w, 6d 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....

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 fanfiction.net 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 · 17w, 3d 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 · 17w, 4d ago · · ·

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

#110 · 17w, 4d ago · · ·

>>405 already was one.

#109 · 17w, 5d 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.

#105 · 17w, 6d 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:

>>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 · 17w, 6d ago · · ·

>>391

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

#100 · 18w, 15m ago · 11 · 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 · 18w, 1h ago · · ·

>>389

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:
