While doing some research on the web I came across this site that is a giant button wall of random 88x31 buttons and I thought I would share!

And I also came across this button generator:

Enjoy! ;p

I remember we were talking about buttons in a previous discussion. I am wondering if we could get a movement started to start making another button size the norm, even if it's just within shrines. I'd like to see the 100x35 or something even larger be the norm! What do you think?

Good god I know you said it was a massive wall of buttons but I just was not ready for that and still had some kind of sensory overload when the page opened and had to roll my chair back and take it all in for a minute.

I'd also love for 100x35 or something to become standard. I hate 88x31, it's too tiny!

Haha oh my god. This reminds me of The Million Dollar Homepage, where this one guy sold ad space for $1 a pixel, up to (obviously) a million bucks. The result is, well, that monstrosity.

I'm not a fan of 88x31 or 100x35 (they're the same proportion so it's a pain to make both of them). I'd like to see something taller come into style -- I'd be happy with 100x50, a la fanlisting codes, but I'd be thrilled with something that gives more space in general, haha.

I feel like I was shoved back into the past seeing that button wall xD

I'm all for buttons being larger since I can have more space to work with.
I accept your challenge, "high prince", but I am no general.

I prefer 200x40 myself. :) I'd love to see that become more common.

... As someone who comes from a background of 468x60 with plenty of space to work with, yes, I'd love 200x40 lmao. We called them banners back in the day, at least in the German community.

Those walls. That kinda threw me for a loop.

I like the 88x31 size but I wouldn't mind branching out into other sizes as well.

My favorite is 88x31, but I don't mind 100x35 either and wouldn't mind this becoming the new norm. I don't even make 200x40 banners for my sites because I hate making them, but after reading this post, I realized that I should make sure that I include some from now on for those who prefer it.
