Hmmmm. These are the colors of the favicon, and I thought people were OK with the favicon!? I didn't know there was any objection to the colors. Not many people are commenting on this thread. Ultimately, I guess it's Paul's choice on what he'd like. If Paul/others want to continue with the blood red/bright red scheme, I should recolor the favicon. I would like to know if this is the case.
There is no problem, of course, with changing code, colors, or introducing your own graphics on a style template, hence the term "template." Even the horizontal bars can be recolored or changed at will.
This does not change the basics of the style. At the bottom of the forum we have "Template made by DEVPPL Flash Games." This is sufficient reference to the template designers, but it could also be changed to something like "Style based on the original RedSilver template by DEVPPL Flash Games."
Really, I think the header area can be thought of as a graphics playground, and we can change it around as often as we want while keeping our main logo element intact somewhere. There are inifinite possibilities. Personally, the chemistry dude doesn't seem that apropros to our group.
My opinion at this point: If there are no solid ideas for the header other than the logo, we should for now just replace the chemistry dude with the logo and group name, with a good font. This is a very simple change that at least gives exposure to our logo. Anyone with an opinion on the font?
I'll be getting ready for vacation today and tomorrow, and gone next week, so I won't be spending as much time on creating graphics for a while. I'm having fun with this though, and I'm enjoying everyone's participation!
