So, it's the time of the year to re-vote for Community Promotion ads on all the Stack Exchange sites. And while the ad we ran on Science Fiction & Fantasy last year was pretty good, I thought maybe I could do better. The following image is my attempt to prove that hypothesis:

This is why we can't have nice things.

I tried to incorporate some elements of our site design (colors, the robot/human on the side), and also appeal to fans of science fiction (Douglas Adams and exploding planets).

Before posting it on SFF's meta, I just wanted to get the community's blessing, and/or see if anyone had any suggestions for improvements.

**Based on the below answers, I have posted the updated image to Meta SFF. I will update as needed if any adjustments are suggested. **

    $\begingroup$ This is personal taste, but maybe some flashier colors? $\endgroup$ – PatJ Feb 3 '17 at 14:56
  • $\begingroup$ @PatJ I'm trying to match the palette of the main site. So... maybe I can touch it up a bit, but I don't want to go too far $\endgroup$ – DaaaahWhoosh Feb 3 '17 at 14:58

    $\begingroup$ I posted last year's version there already. I'd rather have this version than that one, so I can delete that answer if you want, or you can edit this image in place of the first one. Either way, I think this great. $\endgroup$ – HDE 226868 Feb 3 '17 at 15:02
  • $\begingroup$ @DaaaahWhoosh Oooh, subtle. $\endgroup$ – PatJ Feb 3 '17 at 15:07

    $\begingroup$ @curiousdannii yeah, looks like I can. It started out over the size limit, but I guess 2/3rds of the data was unnecessary. $\endgroup$ – DaaaahWhoosh Feb 4 '17 at 2:30
  • $\begingroup$ Looks fantastic! Only thing now is that it looks like there's some 1px artefact on the right side at the top. $\endgroup$ – curiousdannii Feb 4 '17 at 2:33

    $\begingroup$ @curiousdannii yep, good catch, fixed that and some stars that were bothering me (they all bother me, but some less than others). $\endgroup$ – DaaaahWhoosh Feb 4 '17 at 3:26
  • $\begingroup$ @DaaaahWhoosh they are not the stars, eh, they are Dalek's, and the earth was destroyed just by a misshit. $\endgroup$ – MolbOrg Feb 4 '17 at 3:56

Option 1: Replace the current proposal

There is currently a proposal to re-use the design from last year. Vote for this answer if we want to remove that proposed design and replace it with this one.

    $\begingroup$ I like the new proposal and think the Oskeron reference is confusing in the old one, I like this option. $\endgroup$ – Tim B Feb 3 '17 at 15:52
