Time for a new TSG theme
I think it's time for a new TSG logo -- I'm thinking something happy and spring-time... no more snow!

Reply with ideas, etc... For our graphic artists, you might enjoy these:

Not sure what you are displaying with those three Gif's. Are they the original pieces that make up the banner or did you draft a new one that is not displaying?

Did you want pictorial suggestions for a Banner Logo?

Those are the pieces that usually make up the banner -- those are the ones I was going to put in place until I decided to post this.

*shrugs*... I dunno, something not too drastic... maybe just a pretty sun or something. Be creative.

What ever you do, try to maintain a consistency or continuity with your current logo, color schemes, etc. Visual identity with the site is important. Variations on a theme are fine, but a wholesale change would not likely be a good thing.

And remember, not all members live where Spring is approaching.

Well after our blizzard the other day and ensuing damage, it doesn't look like Spring here. However I wouldn't mind seeing some tulips!

What about Mulder's head circling the "?" in the TSG logo with some palm trees?

Why not circling the drain...

Davey, you have to do it in pieces so the image will look the same across all screen resolutions. The first image Mike attached tiles across the banner and fills in the space. How about instead of snow flakes you have butterflies and then have some flowers in the 2 and third images. I'd try to do it but I am terrible with Photoshop.

So it does! Maybe a bit of salt and butter on top would be in order!

I understand.
For display sake it is better to assemble the puzzle to display the pink popcorn and then break it apart later.
