Windows 98 + ME *still* alive campaign + logos

Recommended Posts


Nice, glocK_94. I like "Happy Windows 9x user". I think it sounds better than "Still using Windows 9x", which depending on someone's mood, could be interpreted as "I'm being contrarian, muaha.".

Campaign logos [97 KB, ZIPPed].

Added glocK_94's new logos.

Enjoy.

I very much like these 98 banners.

Several of the forums I frequent don't allow images in signatures or in the threads if they're not directly related to the subject. They do allow avatars, which is the one spot I can use one, but the banners are the wrong shape.

My artistic talent leaves a lot to be desired.

Could someone here merge together one of this style and color,

With one of this shape and size?

If someone would make one that looks better than the one I made, I'll gladly use it.

I'll try to make an avatar...

But maybe smaller then since not all forums allow big images.

Didn't anyone notice that the "Windows 98 Forever" user bar's picture is from Windows Vista's task bar? It's inappropriate.

Thanks. It's appreciated.

Resizing one is the easy part. A few keystrokes with IrfanView will do that. Making the initial image is where I have problems. My artistic abilities are so bad that a "paint-by-number" can end up unrecognizable!

Been trying to think of other captions that would be good besides "Proud Windows 98 User".

Any opinions on these for banners or avatars?

Loyal Windows 98 User.

Windows 98 User By Choice.

98, the Best M$ Can Be.

Powered by Windows 98.

Considering all the improvements, modifications, tweaks, etc that are discussed here, maybe some of these would be appropriate.

98 Modified for Real Performance

Windows 98 Made Even Better

Supercharged Windows 98

How about something similar to this, but with "Windows 98, MSFN Edition" or similar for text.

Would make a nice startup logo too.

That's quite a lot but I will do some of them soon. I like especially the "Powered by Windows 98" and "Supercharged Windows 98"...

I'm sure you can take care of that ! PM me if you need help.

Text like "98, the Best M$ Can Be." are best avoided, as they assert superiority. Not only could this lead to arguments on message boards where you would have that in your signature, it also alienates Win95 and WinME users.

I wasn't asking you to make all of these by any means. Just tossing out some more ideas for anyone who might like them. I also like the "Powered by Windows 98" and the "Windows 98 User By Choice" options.

"Supercharged Windows 98" on a logo with racing stripes or flames? :w00t: Too much work, but sure would look good. Something to play with when I have time.

BenoitRen, you're right, especially about alienating 95 and ME users. Wasn't thinking about that at the time.

Why is it bad to make eye-candy userbars? Even for 9x campaign...

How about The Win98 Club - Accept No Substitutes with an ALT of "The last of a breed" ? :rolleyes:

To who, and what, exactly, are you responding to?

There's nothing wrong with eye-candy. But the eye-candy I was talking about comes from Windows Vista. For a user bar promoting Windows 98, this is unacceptable.
