Default new experimental banners for GIMPS

Some people have been complaining that the GIMPS banners are far outdated, but nobody has taken up the task creating new ones.

I'm a noob at graphics design, but I decided to try my hand at making new banners. I used the open-source GIMP (which, coincidentally, sounds like "GIMPS") since I don't have Photoshop. This is the tutorial I used.

Here are two I made so far. The first one has solid text, while the second one is mostly transparent.

Could I continue using this theme, or do you guys have better ones in mind?

There is not enough contrast between the text and the background for either banner.

I whipped up a few.

Of course the numbers on this one are not accurate, just giving the idea.
