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. :biggrin:

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. :flowers:

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

Marsel 10-07-2009 07:54 AM

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.

Yeah i was also thinking the same, the banner shouls be changed

Patra 10-07-2009 01:05 PM

Good idea to change the banner to keep it fresh.

Jacknch 10-07-2009 01:10 PM

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.

RubyPrincess168 10-08-2009 02:09 AM

I'd rather he not mess with the layout! I like that just fine and know where everything is, etc.

Warren 10-08-2009 03:47 AM

'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:

Andy R 10-08-2009 02:44 PM

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.

Andy I can't wait to see what you have in store for us. Thanks for the link to the RV site Warren my brother in law will love it.

Lumutqueen 10-08-2009 04:16 PM

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

magnik 10-08-2009 05:53 PM

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.

lise 10-09-2009 02:08 AM

I'm completely outnumbered here but I like the banner the way it is.

LadyLeana 10-09-2009 08:29 AM

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 :flowers:

RoyalistRiley 10-11-2009 12:02 AM

I like the logo on the left but it would be nice for something different on the right

bertie5252003 10-11-2009 03:54 PM

I don't dislike the banner but I think an update is always good ..... who owns the site am I allowed to ask?

Marsel 10-11-2009 04:01 PM


The board is owned by Andy R.
He's made a post in this thread.

Roslyn 10-12-2009 06:04 AM

I, too, like everything here just the way it is, but it's Andy R's site, and I'm a very grateful to be his guest here. :flowers:

stellad 10-12-2009 07:44 AM

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.
