Hey guys have a look Here at the HTML color chart and let me know what color you think the Forum Title should be.

Click any color and the corresponding name will appear in the box next to the chart.

The forum software will not allow me to use Hexadecimal color codes in the code for the Title, only color names...

I like the green you have now tbh, but red or blue might work as well.

I also kinda like the green you now have, but I would be interested in seeing what the red and the blue would look like.

Like I said earlier I am color blind so you guys will need to help me in that area. I used the lime green to try and copy the forum coloring.

I sped up the banner and added a few more pictures. Man this stuff takes a lot of time...

Looks good I like the new banner, well done now you can even get rid of the header below the banner now that you have the name in it as well, it might clean up the look a little more.

I can't get rid of it yet... If I do our emails will come with the Board@Forumotion instead of the McstylisT Hardware... I need to find a way to make it invisible in the HTML coding but the codes I have tried did not work...

We will get there!

You can still see the black if you look closely and you can also see it in the title of each thread...

seems a little white ?
OK you can kill me

Hey Guys thanks for all the suggestions!
I'll see what I can come up with today.

Biggest problem is images and making them transparent gifs so they will look decent with other backgrounds. I may have to load photoshop and or flash back on to the computer for editing but I have not used those programs in years...

like it lot here ..looks really great !! another thing maybe to try would be to reverse the background on one to get a bit more pointy 'action' to focus center & a little more 'POP" ..sorry Joel just an honest thought

if not keep this for a bit let folks vote and maybe try the background flip' later of another day or something to vote ...either way it looks great to me
