As you may know, the teaser for the new Pirates movie was just released and so I'm semi-working on the Main Page to help promote the film. Pretty much have all I have in mind (mainly images) but the one thing I don't have is a proper Dead Men Tell No Tales logo. And by logo, I mean like our ones used for the Main Page. In short, I'm wondering if you think you can create something similar but with the skull-and-scroll logo for the new movie...the best image I can find to use as reference is this image. But if it's too much of a request, than it's not too big of a deal yet, as the movie's not out for some time.
In addition (or as a substitute?) do you think you can replace this logo with the DMTNT skull?
Recently, we created a Tabber for the Main Page, during which time I did have help setting up a theme for it. And he provided more updates earlier, so that it now matched the rest of the templates on the Main Page. While I liked the theme itself, I didn't like the image that went along with it. It's pirate-fonted, but it's not as close-to-exact as your fonts...at least when comparing the official logos seen on the movie posters and all that.
In short, I'm wondering if you can modify the POTC font to where it fits the other fonts seen on the Main Page.
Crazy busy the last few days, I'll make it/them right now - probably end up making all new ones just so they match perfectly and we can get the "of the" closer to being correct. (on Quote of the Week as well)
I'd really like to breathe some new life into the POTC webring as well, but I'm not sure how much widespread discussion is needed on that. I just notice it's very plain & the link text is extremely small for modern higher-resolution monitors.
Actually, now that I think about it, is it possible that you can use the Caslon Antique font for the "of the" parts of the headers? (Here is an example of it) Just remembered using that font in the past, and thought it might be better to use.
As for the webring, I was just thinking of making the image and link text a little larger, and adding a custom header to it. Here is a quick example using the same style header created for the main page here: Example
Most impressive! Hate to ask for more, but do you mind making a blog informing other users (and of course visitors of the Wiki) about the font and how it can be done? Just a thought, since you're more knowledgeable on this than I am. Plus it could be an interesting topic worth talking about, and of course it'd be easier to find the answers for any future newcomers in one place.

Oh... that webring (only knew it as the "Hub" or something). But I'm afraid that webring project was not my doing so I don't think that's up to me. You could check with either JoshuaCoalskull, or maybe Dentface, but I don't know how active Dent is these days.
I also brought the letters in the instances of "Ca" closer together to more accurately reflect the true film font styling.
Ah, good eye. Thanks again! It all looks terrific. :)
