I'll see if I can knock up another without the clouds on, you think white background or try for something transparent?
Transparent for sure. Though the problem is the color really, if the O has transparent behind it, it might be too bright to see well. So It's a hard choice.

Hmm, the free app I was using to make them doesn't seem to like transparency :)

Here is the basis if anyone wants to have a go.

See where the ad is, the grey part. I am not sure if this is Firefox or my being a Subscriber. If it's because I am a subscriber, you should remove the grey part 100%, its very big and useless if you pay to be here lol
You can also drag it to the bottom of the page. There is a customize link that lets you move everything around. :)

Is this what you wanted?

BTW, .ico attachments aren't currently allowed. Would it be worth changing this?

Before I completed the header there was just a grey section above, on the line where the logo is, it was bigger and very vacant!

Uploaded it but don't wanna ditch my cache just yet, but hopefully we will see what it looks like soon enough!

I'll add .ico to allowed attachments soon!

I think we need a real logo, to replace osnn.net and so that we can have an awesome favicon as well. I will design something.

But then what is a logo? :D

The O does actually remind me of the windows vista busy mouse pointer so I may well exploit that at some point :D

Something to this effect.
F*cking love that mate. Really stands out. Obviously it would need to be changed to fit in the whole "OSNN" acronym, but I really like the style. It stands out and looks professional.

You know what, you've got a really good point there :) Maybe Bman would be kind enough to come up with something like that too, and we could vote on the best one!

Well keep in mind that overstock.com already has the market on the saying of "The Big O" - bastards!

Maybe I'm crazy - but, when I look at a thread with new posts, the icon next to how long ago it was made (i.e. 8 hours ago), used to be orange or whatever if I hadn't seen it yet. They appear to be grey now. I think this was working (orange) yesterday, but today it doesn't seem to be.

This is useful so I can scroll through threads just to those posts.

It appears random for me, sometimes show them as new, sometimes not so much. :(

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
