    As everyone can see we have a new forum layout. There will still be changes coming and improvements made.

    The old forum banner will be uploaded as soon as everything is ready. It would however be nice to have a new banner to go with the new forum layout.

    Therefore we would like to invite anyone with skills (we know that there are plenty of you here in the forum) to design the next forum banner. Be creative with it and have fun.

    Remember this is your forum...:D

    I suggest let's wait till Horse comes up with a definite theme instead of the default one. And please not the Christmas thing again? It's almost March ;)

    Yes, but as long as we don't have a theme, it's difficult to come up with a fitting idea. Unless we choose the theme that fits with the banner....... Hmmm, I like that idea :)

    Sounds good. But there can't be enough room for a such one I'm affraid. Looking at the top bar of the new template I've gotten an impression our Admin needs something smaller.

    Wojtec, you can make the whole template the way you want if you know css and php. I don't know if hosre is going to adjust some custom templates or if he builds his own (I would do the first option) but still you can adjust the place for the banner.
    My creation (not seriously :)):

    I always thought the banner my friend Clint did for the Luftwaffe Experten Message Board was a clever idea.

    That is very nice. I still like something like we had before where it rotates between aircraft from different nations.

    OK, Horse. Must say I preferred the variable width of before that adjusts to your screen size. Not a huge fan of this narrow view that is here at the moment.

    I think we can change it soon. The only thing I need , are correct dimensions for the banner.

    I got used to the "Clean Blue" look after the switch last time. It wasn't all that bad, really.
