    I like the picture better now because before I saw a mushroom cloud or a tornado, but for myself, I don't think of nature as having a goddess dwelling in it, although I do use the expression "Mother Nature."

    Hmmmm. I don't have a suggestion for something else to say right at the moment...

    The banner is absolutely beautiful - I'm trying to understand - really - could someone help me relate this to the mists around Avalon because it looks so otherworldly - beautiful, but not earthly. Help me - I have never been one of those people who could interpret paintings. It's very pleasing to the eye, I am just trying to understand the connection - maybe there doesn't need to be one. I'm a blank slate at this point.

    Now, if the mists are not to be portrayed at literal, then I could get my head around a symbolic mYsts and see it's connection - kind of like the new Jerusalem spoken of in the Bible - an ethereal Jerusalem rather than a literal one.

    Please don't view this as criticism - I'm the one with the vision problem, not ya'll.

    Its only for a Couple of days then one of the Misty ones goes up there - Then a couple days later another and so on. Its not Permanent as We will be changing them up every couple of days or weeks depending on the Community's take on each one.

    Its just a change for the Eyes is all and You must admit - We have to acknowledge all of the hard work others have done on Banners. This is just one of the ways to do that...

    And......the rotating is a great idea - yes I believe everyone's work deserves a shot.

If we could get used to the idea and it was physically possible to have two planets rotating so closely together, it might be a neat thing to be able to take a flight to the neighboring planet for an outing. Brings a whole to new meaning to the phrase "road trip".
    This is taken straight from my portal layout/design proposal posted elsewhere on the forum, I was just asked to post the banner here. And it's a pic a just grabbed off the interwebs (http://www.cool-desktop-backgrounds.com/); I would propose to have several versions of the banner background image anyway, I think this was already suggested in this thread. Also the image should have cleared copyright (should be fine in this case as this site is clearly non-commercial). But since I'm not the author of the image I'm not likely to be able to edit it other than for colours and, possibly, a minor retouch (^__^ )

    Another issue which I believe should be settled before anything else is whether the forum will be fixed width - and if so what width it's going to be - or fluid, in which case I think there should be a layered CSS or something along those lines, and this should be reflected in the proposed designs. Then we should have a logo which will be always pretty much the same and more or less independent of the background image.

    Mercuriel is working on this Majorion trying out several skin we'll be able to choose from .

    I assume this site is hosted with a regular hosting company (Goddady in this case) so you guys ought to have access to all the usual controls and features, so, why not set up a sandbox for experiments and tuning, for example a subdomain such as sandbox.themistsofavalon.net, password protected through htaccess if need be, so all those experiments can be conducted without affecting the real forum.

    Speaking of which, may I ask why the e-mail notifications come from the board@forumotion.com address, and replies are sent to mac@gillamnet.com? Is there a reason not to set-up mail accounts for this purpose on this domain?

    Uhhhmmm - Where are You getting this Info ?

    Blink

    All We have with this Forum is a CP Interface and three Temporary Themes plus the Default one. We cannot Upload to this Forum from that Interface anything other than minor Graphics and CSSs and even with that - Its Image Hosting that is Hosting Our Graphics.

    We can't get to the root Folder or for that matter any of the Forum Folder Hierarchy of this Forum nor are We able to upload anything other than what The Host allows Us as already detailed.

    Now while this is more than the free Invision Forum allowed Us - It is still lacking in the Functionality You describe or think We already have. That said - We do not have that Functionality - YET...

    Well, Godaddy is the domain's registrar according to Whois. A made assumptions based on that. I'm not sure how the Freeforums work, but by having had a look I assumed the forum software is phpBB 3.x (I think it also showed up in one of the skins) although the source code a) is compressed b) lacks the generator meta. If my previous assumption is wrong, the next one would be that the Freeforums allows you to set up a site with a forum and redirect a DNS entry of your domain to it, which I see as very impractical, hence unlikely - wouldn't it make much more sense to just get a hosting plan and download and install phpBB or other free forum software, while being able to do anything else, like set up more-or-less unlimited number of e-mail accounts, subdomains and whatnot?

    I pay about 35 euros a year for something like that with 2 or 3 GB of hard drive space, FTP access with unlimited accounts and PHP/MySQL, 120 euros would buy me a year of virtual private server with Cpanel, about 10 GB of hard drive space and up to 10 2nd level domains hosted on it, fully pre-installed LAMP AND a root access on top (which I normally don't need since most hosting companies provide an interface for most of the settings, some even a DNS management).

    As for the notifications, that's what I see in my e-mail client.

    if you need me to add a copyright sign just let me know, i can copyright it to the forum if needed?.. I could also create that logo (on the left of a banner) + a another banner that can get alternated along with a background for each theme. just let me know.

    P.s sorry if this post doesnt make sense to you all, im in work so shouldnt really be on the forums! lol. See you guys later (i do still browse while at work) naughty of me! :)

    Heres a theme mock i came up with. people said about a dark theme, if its possible i think this theme would look good New banners, Members please take a look and decide - Page 4 Icon_cool

    http://i39.tinypic.com/33kg9lk.jpg

    its an url this time as the picture is quite large and would look better loaded in its own tab / window.

    NWK.
    P.s by the way this is a just a mock, it didnt take me too long i just took a screenshot of the site and edited certain colours. for some reason the colours where the main menu show (home etc) dont show correct. Im not even sure if its possible to alter the menu with a gradient. The banner would also be a lot lot better its just a quick mock to show the size of a banner in full, the theme would look more like AV2 in my perspective.. not copying, but the way the logo sits with the banner.

    Here let Me give You the Skinny and I am not debating if You are right. You are.

    Its that We can select from 4 different types of Board and go back and fouth between them if We so wish. That being pHpBB2, pHpBB3, PunBB and Invision as types of Forum Boards We can run and switch between and have the Info travel across It globally. That said Forum Motion owns all the Code - The WebServers - All of It at the moment and so this is the real reason for thoughts of expansion...

    As far as the URL - I reserved It for Us for the next Year and will have to get into negotiations with them on purchasing It if We even can. The Phone call for that is tomorrow BTW...

    I was looking at It Siri...

    I'll have to put it up tomorrow when I get Home. Carol and I are once again thinking about changing the Banner anyways. That said - Bank on this. If this Banner isn't the next one We put up - It'll be the one after that OK ?

    BTW - I like It ALOT...
