Firefox Personas - Can we get a Donationcoder one?
« on: June 15, 2009, 05:27:26 PM »
I'm sure all you Firefox users have heard of the new Personas feature...

Anybody using them? What's your favorite?

I'm wondering if somebody (*me pokes nudone...) could make one with a Donationcoder flavor?

can't do it immediately, so make your suggestions for what it should be.

Nice Scancode, but not quite...

The personas usually require a header and a footer. I don't know default sizes or if a larger image would autosize to a smaller resolution, but I digress...

I was thinking of the DC home page banner for the header. You know, the thing that goes from binary gibberish to that nice gradated blue, but without Donationcoder.com and the stuff in the middle. Maybe move that to the side.
For the footer, something a little different, maybe a slightly different color, and involving Cody...

Nope, they don't autosize, and they have some nice templates available ( https://people.mozil.../personas/designers/ )
Header anchors on topright corner, footer on bottomleft.

Woops, from the Persona "HowTo":
Quote
Header:
Dimensions should be 3000px wide x 200px high

Footer:
Dimensions should be 3000px wide x 100px high

Also, each image can't be over 300kb
Header anchors on topright corner, footer on bottomleft.

OK, good info. I'll work on a little something myself.

Pretty much.

Sounds lame, but sometimes something a little more dressy than the default is nice.
Which is why I asked about a DC themed one, I mean, why not?
