Post New Banner
Hi everyone...I'm liking the new banner at the top of the page! I think its 'cute' and thats no bad thing in my eyes!

Who is responsible for the drawings of the plants and people...is it Carol's school 'kids' or have the adults been getting creative :wink:

maybe I should take that as a compliment! :lol:

I took the idea from the various banners on the phpBB support fora, for example;

- I felt photomontages like the Oasis one and the HT one are a predictable cliché, and that a primitive-painted style made a visual counterpoint to any photographs posted in threads.

I may keep changing it, a bit like the graphic art on the weekly covers of New Scientist.

Which, I think, is better.

Plus it might attract some Venusian members if we're really lucky.

I really like the new banner too Peter- and well done for incorporating palms, nanas, succulents and boos into the picture- as this was and issue people could never decide upon!

Thankyou both.

There is a farm on the way from here down to Cairns that has a pair of scarecrows at the front gate that get up to all sorts of things, its a different tableau each time I drive past. If I have time, I may do the same with my two stick-people up there.

Peter.
