Lightbulb Is It Time to Change the Banner?

I think it's time to change the banner. I remember when there was a contest here and people voted on the ones submitted by members. That was a fun thing to do. Nothing wrong with the one we have but now and then, when one opens a site, it's always nice to be surprised by the changes made with it. Makes a person think that a site is growing, moving along with the times.

I understand the kind of work volunteers put in here and it's really much appreciated by all. Just a suggestion for the distant future.

It seems to me that origination is perhaps instinct, not intellect. -Joe Strummer

I think it might be time to change the banner too, although I like the logo on the left.

Perhaps a possible new design would be more inclusive and would include more Royals, especially ones that joined the Royal Families after the original banner was created.
The logo on the left should definitely stay - it's beautiful and quite regal.

This said, I'm rather fond of the current banner: it's so TRF, sort of instantly recognizable.

Good idea to change the banner to keep it fresh.

It would be great to see the banner change - at least with updated photographs - QE2 hasn't had that haircolour for donkey's years! I too think the logo on the left is great - it's exactly right!

At the moment the owner of the forum is busy in creating a new lay out for this, and hios other forums. In the process the banner will probably change to. For the moment we don't know what the new lay out will be precisely. it is best to wait with a new banner until the new lay out will be sorted out. It will take some time however.

'Layout' referring to the visual appearance (called the "skin") rather than a re-arrangement. It's to do with the overall design and colours of the site.
As an example, see one of TRF's sister-sites:

Another example to look at is (another sister site). As you can see it looks and feels like a cooking site. We are going to get a new skin for TRF and it's going to look and feel like a Royal site. So be patient a new look and feel will be here soon. Stay tuned for more details.

If you want a new banner for the top right until the new skin rolls out, that's fine. I can change it anytime.

I like the The Royal Forums in the top left corner. But possible more royals in the top right.

It's good to change something since time ti time.
I like the left part of the banner. It could be little bigger.
On the right side could be something different like mix of jewels and royals or smth like that.

Everyone seems so full of ideas...

Maybe the creative ones among you can make some examples of how they'd want it to be, and then we can see what we can do with the suggestions

Nothing wrong with the present banner but a new banner would look just as good. Thanks to the person who will make the new banner.
