What? It doesn't show the whole "Happier Abroad", only some of the letters. That would look strange. Why not just use that image and put "HA" in it if the two words can't fit? Or just have "HA" and a globe somewhere around it?
What are you talking about, it has the whole introduction to the forum. To a new forum member this will peak interests. I'm a world class marketeer who has had several decent jobs in different countries, I know what I'm talking about.
Ok we can try it. I wonder if anyone will complain though. lol

Why not just have a logo with just an H and A in it and maybe a globe behind it?
Ok I put it up there. But it looks tacky. You can't even see the yellow subtitle. Why not just have the words "life and love overseas" in yellow with some image behind it? Even that would be better. Or just a simple HA logo with a globe behind it?

Oh shit I thought you were going to replace the whole blue box with what I made. You didn't tell me it was that small.

What do you mean? What you put together was a small square of the original banner. It could not have replaced the whole long blue header at the top. What did you think was the logo?

Just to let you all know, we can create subforums in this forum now. They would be forums under the boards we have now. Not sure if they are necessary though. But it's something to keep in mind.
Not to purposely be an inhibitor, but are you sure you want to give EVERY POSTER rights to create their own subforum? Am I understanding this correctly?

I don't see anything but a broken image. When I try to open your image in a new tab, it says "Forbidden". That site hosting it must be blocking Taiwan.

Can you get it to me another way? I can enable uploads in PM's for a while if you want to send it as an attachment.

No of course not. I was speaking figuratively when I said "we". I meant that I could create subforums here, if enough people wanted them. You are funny. lol

Update:

Alright I've changed the background color of the posts and of the forum list index to the same color it was on the old forum.

How does it look now? Better?

Note: If you don't see the new background colors yet, press Control-Shift-R or Control-F5 to refresh your browser cache so you can see it.

Important feature:

You should all know this, but in case some of you don't know, the "View Your Posts" link at the top takes you to a page where you can check responses to all your posts. It should be one of the first pages you go to when you come to the forum.

Some new features to note:

- If you receive spam via PM, you can report the PM by clicking on the exclamation mark button in the top right corner of the PM you receive.

- If you are composing a post or PM and don't have time to finish it, you can save it as a draft by clicking the "Save as Draft" button next to the Submit button.

- The default view in the forum on topic pages is set at 15 posts per page. If you want to view more or less posts per page, you can change that in your User Control Panel settings, under "board preferences". Your UCP is linked at the top in the header section.

To moderators:

If you see a red exclamation mark next to a topic title in a forum list, it means that someone has reported a post in that thread. Click on the red exclamation mark to view the report. From there, you can close it or issue a warning to the offending poster by clicking on his/her username.
