When you first join the tf2 server I noticed the banner was all funny and did not fit

here is the link to the message of the Day MOTD

http://202.60.82.195:9966/ubik4.htm

Can some one wuth some HTML skills please make a hot looking banner/splash page so when you join our server you get a some good looking tf2 / ubik morphed page

Tech stuff
Modt.txt
Motd.txt file contains the message of the day! This is the introduction screen when somebody joins your server. There's a cool new feature in 1.6 that allows you to put HTML code... But that's supported only in a couple of games (Counter-Strike and Day of Defeat). A non HTML motd.txt would look like this:

MESSAGE OF THE DAY
Welcome to Counter-Strike 1.5

Map Rotation For This Server:

de_airstrip
cs_havana
de_chateau
de_aztec
as_oilrig
cs_siege
de_cbble
de_dust
cs_747
de_prodigy
cs_assault
cs_office
cs_italy
cs_backalley
cs_militia
de_train

But a HTML enabled motd.txt may contain HTML code with colors like this:

<p><font><font><font>MESSAGE OF THE DAY</font><br>
<font>Welcome to Counter-Strike 1.6<br>
<br>
Map Rotation For This Server:</font></font><br>
<font><br>
</font></font><font>
de_airstrip<br>
cs_havana<br>
de_chateau<br>
de_aztec<br>
as_oilrig<br>
cs_siege<br>
de_cbble<br>
de_dust<br>
cs_747<br>
de_prodigy<br>
cs_assault<br>
cs_office<br>
cs_italy<br>
cs_backalley<br>
cs_militia<br>
de_train</font></p>

HTML may seem complicated but there are a lot of tutorials for beginners (search on Google!). Remember that you can always use a WYSIYWG (what you see is what you get) editor to create your code. If you don't want to use HTML code for your message, simply write it in plain text and it will work.

Remember that this file is limited to 1KB of space and HTML may not contain any Flash nor JavaScript.

Server.

Id have to blow out some serious cobwebs.. but i know HTML fairly well.... The only thing that confuses me is your request. You ask for a banner, call me silly..... but a banner is just a pic like this.>>>



Do you want like a splash page coded to replace the original one????

Or do you want a new banner pic. (ie photoshop ect.)
