I don't like the "someone should make a logo" thing at the top so we need some suggestions! Anyone got any ideas? If you find a cool picture or can design one yourself then post here. Smile

I've been trying to draw something up, not feeling inspired tonight for some reason so maybe someone else can make a start?

Is everyone happy with the default colour scheme and template? Better to choose and change now rather than later i guess. My vote would be for the Terayon theme i mentioned before...

http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=438270

Would need the support of our host to upload new templates tho.

Edit:
Might be an idea to make sure logos are vector based as well? (for future use)

avid_engineer:

You should be able to setup a new template from the administration panel. If you need FTP access, let me know and I'll send you an account.

Edit:
My apologies. It appears you can only create Themes.
I've sent a PM to you with the FTP info.

I have an idea for a logo.

Use an infinity sign on a rotor wheel. with above it two small magnets and below it two small magnets. Each magnet should have north and south poles labeled with "S" and "N". One magnet on the bottom and one on top would each have a disc shaped shield infront of it. All North marked sides should face the infinity symbol.

In the middle of the infinity symbol place a lightning bolt to symbolize electricity. Right above it between the top two magnets put a light bulb.

What do you think? Smile

Nice ideas babcat, that illustrates what we are all about quite well.

I've taken your idea for lightning and a lightbulb with my original forum logo idea from my previous attempt. The colour scheme is easily changeable to match whatever forum template we end up using. Here's what i got...



Im sure theres room for improvement, simplicity is sometimes good too Smile

Very nice -- I've thrown it up in the subSilver template.

Perhaps we could hold a logo contest?

Speaking of:

avid_engineer, are you interested in setting up a poll for the default template?

Thanks crank / drichardson. A logo contest sounds like a good idea to me and ill try and get a poll going for the tew template in a min... right after i've made a brew Wink

Here's a better version to suit the Terayon theme (if we decide to use it) which sits across the board title area.

Great image Avid, well done! I'm still seeing the smaller logo though and can't figure out how to change it. Confused

WhiteLite,

I believe the new logo has been applied only to the new Terayon2 theme. Check it out by chaging your board theme in the profile section.

Remember to vote on my poll in forum suggestions if you like (or dislike) the Terayon2 theme, we only have like 4 votes so far and ive just extended the time left to vote to tuesday (GMT).

Ah well done Avid, I got it now. Actually I have already voted in your poll as I disliked the standard forum layout. Razz

I'm tempted to go ahead and change the default forum layout to this one now.
