@Erika Can you and your team write a guide on creating such a beautiful banner? Materials, size, paint, stenciling, etc.

2017-11-21 03:27:13 UTC  

@Argument of Perigee that’s a great request. I’ve been in touch with our new activism coordinator, @wayne peek, and having a written standardized manual, as well as accompanying videos, to show what materials to buy and the process of how to make a large scale professional looking banner is something we both want to create and release by the end of 2017.

2017-11-21 03:42:47 UTC  

Yes. We are about to be releasing all of these things. Stay tuned. By the end of the week all of these questions will have answers and directions.

@Erika we should share .xcf files so first timers don't have to learn GIMP from scratch. That set me back a while.

2017-11-21 07:29:13 UTC  

Wow,absolutely wonderful Banner,Very Professional Banner! My dad used to do professional hand painted signs,helped once-even he would be quite impressed! ;)

@Logan it would probably be a good idea to have an .xcf file dump, but I do think it’s a good idea that everyone still learn how to use the software to make their own custom banner graphics. GIMP is a pain in the ass to learn, but it’s a necessity.

@celticflame thanks!

@wayne peek Needs to includes what to look for when selecting a target overpass, how to use grommets, weighing the bottom of the banner to prevent flapping, and deployment tactics.

We will have a voice call soon. I want to chat will all the coordinators and get everyone on the same page. I was thinking when we have our next meeting we could catch everyone up at once.

Someone called the cops. Maximum rustling

2017-11-24 17:31:36 UTC  

thought crime

2017-11-24 17:33:18 UTC  

It was up for a few hours though

2017-11-24 17:54:48 UTC  

No padlocks on it?

2017-11-24 17:56:37 UTC  

Cops will just cut them with bolt cutters they normally have them in the back of their car

2017-11-24 17:56:50 UTC  

Our group leaves small attack dogs nearby to dissuade anyone who'd take it down. Our banners can stay up for weeks, with enough dog food.

2017-11-24 18:01:34 UTC  

@Sam Southern - TN we put 10 grommets on it and zip tied each one. Took him a while to figure out how to get on the other side of the fence to take it down.

2017-11-24 18:07:14 UTC  

Little brain Orlando police can't operate a fence

2017-11-24 23:52:51 UTC  

@Mark Vandal so great

2017-11-25 00:03:20 UTC  

@Erika it's not the same come back!

2017-11-25 01:57:38 UTC  

@Mark Vandal I’ll let you know next time I come visit Florida so we can do another drop.

2017-11-26 00:59:42 UTC  

Still there as far as I know

2017-11-26 01:21:45 UTC

Those two are in mountain bike parks. Libraries, churches, gyms and small towns are all places I've been trying to reach more as well.
