From the fb fail thread (post 3):
On a side note, I overheard Fiddlerman discussing a new banner for the site. With your background in backgrounds (see what I did there) maybe you guys could collaborate on a new banner.
^ I can't remember where or when but I remember something about a new banner too. So I figured I'd start a new thread dedicated towards this.
It's pretty late here so I cant practise my violin and I dont want to do catch up study because I cant focus and I have a short attention span. So I threw around a few ideas and heres a rough sketch of what I came up with for the rumored new banner (it is a very very very rough sketch, did it in like 5 mins flat) its back to front because I took the picture with my web cam:
I would like to have a different banner every month to make the site look fresh.
^ maybe photoshopping photographs would be better then.
What if you got a bunch of new banners, including your current one too, and got them to rotate pictures everytime someone came to this site. it has something to do with the html code but i cant remember exactly how to do it anymore.
I think changing banners for different holidays and stuff is a great idea. I also think fiddlerman.com has a pretty good site design the way it is too though.
Besides writing songs I've been a graphic designer since 1982 and web design since the early nineties before people thought AOL was the internet (I'm getting old but still feel 18 😉
Well if you do decide to change the banner and go with holiday or seasonal themes why not add music to fit that theme like for halloween some spooky creepy music. That would be so much fun to play behind someone at a party!!!!
I second it.

One thing I always tried to do was to make pages that load quickly. I know of at least on person on the forum on a dial-up connection. If you make pictures too large (file size, not so much physical size) and put music in the background it would take a long time to load. You really don't want your home page to be a slow load for the people on dial-up. It is easy to forget how slow 56k is.lol
