• Please remember that Politics, Off Topic and Global Warming boards are for fairly serious discussion. I would like to see language used in those boards reflect that level of serious discussion. Sand Pit, Members. Improvements—go your hardest.

Second lot of improvements

I have not touched them for at least a month. Must be someone else.....something else happening.
random shite seems to be happening... i keep getting some message telling me to accept cookies but it won't give the option... sometimes the problem just disappears as if it didn't exist or sometimes nothing works...

Of course something happened, we closed the old board and before that moved all the smilies from that board to this one. Now they need to be rejigged to work in their new position.

There are graphic designers that do work for the web as well. Looked up a couple in Adelaide.

So early next year find a great image you like, post it here or in Members maybe (copyright.) When we have something we all like we can get a logo done and header done.

Then we need some lettering:

Main:
Political Animal Australia


Minor:
Robust and informed debate
Australian and World Politics

(We can argue about the wording.)

Logo and lettering (fonts, styles, colors etc) done then XenForo should help me get the new logo and header in place. If not—task #1 for developer.

After that—nice to have some decent little pics, one per visible board. Again, a web designer can select and shrink then touch up images for this.

Anything else? Yank forum offer any ideas?

Fuck, look at the logo, imagine the lettering around it gone—logo can be quite big!

I have hit the quote tab, without meaning to, and I guess they are unrelated, from different topics. I don't know how to unquote

but I just tried the Button below and I removed it yeah.

Now the button is gone.. so I imagine it will only reappear when I hit +q button again.


To quote myself, incorrectly quoting Kamahl... Why is Life so hard.
Yeah fuck that logo off, dont like it!
@HBS Guy Shouldn't the lettering say Australian and U.S. Politics? Maybe with an Australian flag and a slightly larger U.S. flag in the middle since the U.S. is the center of the universe? :bgrin
.
Yes, numbnuts, I already said the logo is going and the whole header designed properly by a web designer.

Ummm “Australian and World Politics” covers it pretty well I reckon. Flags, not a flagwaver.

I would like to see some nice little pictures on the visible boards and am not against the US Congressional building for Politics—an image that is cleart shrunk down quite a bit.

This would be a goody for the logo:



Just have to sort out copyright.

CRAP ---FUGLY and not what I regard as a recognisable Australian icon animal to lots of peeps.

I do realise what it is but as i say not widely recognisable I would have thought.

Kangaroo or Koala are recognizable Aussie animals imo

Yeah....let's be really groundbreaking and have a koala or a kangaroo. How novel.

Depends on what you want to achieve don't you think.?

If this is just for Aussies, and the odd yank or kiwi.. yeah whatever.
If you want to attract other international members, you NEED something striking, but quintessentially Aussie.

I'll think on it. :bgrin .
