    someone could make a favicon. 16x16. we're using the default vanilla thing right now and it looks dumb
  6.  
    Somebody should now tweak the default colors to match our sweet new header. And, eventually, we should have a couple headers that rotate out. And a footer!Word nerd
  7.  
    how do we post a new header?there ain't no magic in the breakdown baby
  8.  
    ^ with magic?HUUUUUUUUUUUT!!!!!!!
  9.  
    ^ damn it, i have no reached that level of spell castingthere ain't no magic in the breakdown baby

    Rich, I think you design one with the specifications that Brandon can give you, and then you give it to Brandon. But I don't even know if it is possible to have rotating headers, or even desirable. It was just a fanciful idea. Tra la la.Word nerd
  11.  
    well mine would have a laser light show (as expected)there ain't no magic in the breakdown baby

    Oh shit!Word nerd

    my photoblog has rotating headers, but it uses necromancy, not magic, so I do be thinking it would not work here.this wont hurt a bit...

    ilikeitfixed:i really like it the only thing i dont like is it is kind of grainy

    i'm no artist, but i'd have to agree. i think the concept is great, however, just some tweaking needed. my brain keeps wanting to tune out the "static".

    it's also possible that my brain is fundamentally flawed. in fact, i'd say it's probable.

    along the same lines, kiddo katsu's logo always puts me about half a step away from experiencing full epileptic seizures.~(..,)~ (oYo) make whoopee not war (oYo) ~(..,)~

    i love the 80s miami colors...sweet logo...i agree that the rest of the site should be in the same, neons and shit!!(moscow)

    I'd say that Kat's avatar is probably a good example of how a Bostonfixed lasershow could be accomplished.Word nerd

    We could have rotating stylesheets too, that correspond to each logo design. Crazy neons for this header, shades of gray for a BW-photo header, etc. Or whatever.Word nerd

    i appreciate your feedback...but i'm not going to change it because i like it how it is. some people like things crisp and clean, and that's cool but that's not this header. i fully agree with rob - rotating headers would be the bomb. if that's not possible, we should just change it up every now and then. so basically what i'm saying is: feel free to make a less grainy header, and then I'LL criticize it! JKJK
    but really everyone, design one yourself! brandon, you should post the parameters again here.
    i REALLY wanted to make an animated gif like the north end knockout flyer for the header, but that wouldn't be too swell when i'm cruising this site at work. so no more epileptic seizures for now...guess what

    i can make them rotate.

    banners should be 130px tall and pretty wide (2000px should cover it; since most people won't see the stuff on the far right, you can repeat). i can work other things out too, but i'd like to keep the height stable..

    someone on the old site made a nice sepia-toned header with an old map of boston and a bike on it. Anyone still have a copy of that one.Troglodytarum is latin for troll

    ^ i re-posted it back in one of the earlier threads. it was the wrong aspect ratio, though.

    what's a favicon?

    it's the little image that gets displayed to the left of the URL in most browsers.

    brandonc:someone could make a favicon. 16x16. we're using the default vanilla thing right now and it looks dumb

    I just did this in a few minutes.

    And the inverse, which might go along well with the new header.

    just shrink kiddo katsu's initial bike polo logo down to 16x16. there's nothing polo-specific about it, and it looks fine at that resolution.
