I like the idea very much. If anybody is interested in producing a banner please post in this topic. Perhaps if we can get at least 5 interested members, we could proceed with the contest?

The best would show promotional art from the system's best/most recognizable games.

Like the Bond image from the cart label:

I will definitely participate in this and will post within the next week or so. Using characters is a neat idea

Here is my first entry:

I used Metal Mario and Dark Link ideas to frame the banner because I think Mario and Zelda are the most beloved Nintendo characters. I like the simple colors of black, white, grey and a tint of blue because they seem timeless to me. The background can be white or transparent. It is 1000 by 100 pixels

That's very nice! I think something similar but with some color would be a nice alternative.

Okay I agree. After all, the N64 is the most colorful console. Here is one with color but different pictures for Mario and Link because the others I had specifically for a dark banner:

Any better?

I really like how that turned out, lithium. I have been staying with in-laws for months now. I wish were were finished moving in to our place. If I had my computer all set up, I would love to take a crack at a banner. My signature photo was the last thing I produced.

Very nice. Was hoping for something with the characters a little larger, though. Like closeups of their faces, or something...

Here's a banner from a forum I used to visit - I like the size/position on the characters:

Call me crazy, but I actually like the current logo. Maybe Add Mario + Zelda to it like you've done, but keep the current text.

Simple is better and looks more professional. When you do too much it looks like something a teenager would whip up in photoshop. I prefer a more classy look.

While I give kudos to all of the above submissions, I, too, really like the font/color of the present banner. While adding characters to it is a great idea, I was thinking about a controller silhouette imposed behind the present banner...kinda fits with our gaming/collecting motives. But alas, I have very little computer graphics talent.

I have taken everyone's comments into consideration thus far. I think with the combined ideas and some of my own designing prowess, I have come up with an excellent banner:

Posted Image
Please click on the banner itself for the actual size

I used the images of Mario and Zelda to frame the Banner (on the corresponding side with their respective color of blue and green) because they are the most iconic on the console. I used the original banner (because I really did like it too but think it still requires an upgrade) with some slight changes to the colors and font. I placed a yellow N64 controller as a background to the middle of the banner for a plethora of reasons: 1) to add in the last of the 4 main colors of the N64 logo (yellow, blue, green and red), 2) to show how colorful the N64 controllers and consoles are, and 3) to show the unique controller layout with 3 handles and colorful buttons. Lastly, the background can be white (as shown) or can be transparent to show the background color of our current forum.

This is, by far, my favorite design and it gets my vote.

I like Lithium's most recent post, but the green text overlap on the yellow controller is slightly hard on the eyes. Maybe borrow Valor's idea and use a very faint black outline on the text? his glow width is a bit too much IMO, but if you could make it just a thin outline, it'd look perfect IMO.

I was bored at work so thought I'd have a quick go at a few. There basically all the same but with different varients of text:

Ignore the white border. I wasn't able to get the N64 in the background to stretch without looking rubbish.

Or something very similiar to the original:
