Well, I have just decided to remove all “Pixel Art Masterpieces”, “Games with Pixel Art” etc. banners from the site (that were located under each post).

I no longer liked them and 35% of those who voted (n=54) thought the same.

Site looks now better.

Anyway… Rest stays the same. :)

In the last few month I got about 3-4 tumblr messages that told me that the “Pixel Art Masterpieces” and “Games with Pixel Art” banners below each post are annoying.

So I wanted to ask how many of you think that these banners are indeed annoying and should be removed.

Thus I created a little poll where you can vote and see the results in real time.

Let’s see how it turns out.
