Re: What you like to add or change on the site

While I am looking at the banner, maybe the trailer could be a bit less generic and a bit more Escape? Sadly, I am good at criticizing, but not good at drawing.

Either am I.. That's why the older banner looked the way it did (and displayed differently on different browsers).. I need a royalty free clip art in a .png file format.. I searched and found the current one..and imported it into "GIMP" a freeware graphic program to size it correctly and fit into the banner. To be "Escape" specific we would probably need to hire/get a graphic designer to do it (camera ready art) as a digital picture wouldn't really work as the background needs to be transparent (so it 'floats" over the banner) .. I'm semi-technical, but I really can't do the "Graphic Arty thing" (or dance the rumba or any kind of dance really, in fact my dancing skills are pretty much bunk..)

I really try to use "free stuff" as it kind-of adds up when you start going down the professional route..

Changed the banner to include "trailer".. I think we are stuck with the "generic trailer art" though, unless one of the members can come up with something better in a .PNG format. The size of the entire banner image is 468/60 pixels so the "trailer clip art" should be around 80/45 pixels or something that we can scale down to fit..

Of my two suggestions, you have fixed the more important. Thanks, Jeff.

Jeff, the little trailer looks like a 17' anyway, so personally, I think it's great. Great job, I appreciate all you've done on this forum. It's a fun addendum to our own HokieEscape.
