    Would it be possible to have a changeable picture graphic up top? Like every month the pictures change or have a scrolling graphic? So maybe people can send in their "what it means to live in Broadlands" pictures? :)

    WOW STEVE! WE LOVE IT> Nice chamge from the ho-hum blue and white. It's also easier on the eyes and seeing the local pictures is a nice touch. We have our house decorated in harvest colors so it's right down our alley! Bravo for the hard work put into this.

    Steve--

    We like the "Experimental Style" of the Broadlands Forum. Is it possible to change "with the Seasons" or is too complicated?

    Broadlands "Nature Theme" is also great. Perhaps having scenic pictures on your Forum as "background" can be done.

    Good luck--

    Foodie

    Here's a sample of what I could help out with...

    Dunno, just toying around. Ultimately depends how many icons you want to replace, and if you want something other than the quill and paper motif, something more Broadlands-y or nature-y.

    I've been using experimental version and really like it. Appreciate all the hard work you guys put in designing and monitoring so we can spout off stupid opinions :)

    please, can the forum theme change with daily weather and stock market conditions, as well as my mood? Oh, and pink butterflies!

    thank you!

    Hmm... a script on the server to check weather conditions... rotate pictures so they match the daily forecast....

    I won't speak for this forum's admins, but I may try something like that on my own website.

    Stop giving me more projects to not finish! :)

    Something to do with reputation. I gave you a reputation point, it should be green now. :clap:

    You can change a person's reputation by marking up or down the posts they make (approve or disapprove of their posts).

    I guess someone's approving of some posts for some people if others have green dots.

    I wonder if anyone has red dots....

    that is in the works as well.. but done by the other guys :)

    Err... did you say broadlands.org ? That domain is not owned or controlled by us. That is VM's commercial 'sales' site.
