With our lovely new forum, there's talk of needing a new banner for the top of the page. We have lots and lots of people on here who are talented with Photoshop or whatever, so it might be fun to invite entries and maybe have a bit of a vote on it, if Neil is ok with it?

From what I can gather, header images should be 900 x 90px by default but that can also be changed in the back end. I'm not an expert, so happy to be corrected on any of this.

So maybe we could set a width limit of 900 and a height between 90 and 140. And please please please make sure you actually design / output something at 2x size so that it looks good for people on higher resolution screens.

And maybe a new favicon to go along with it (those are the icons that appear up in your browser's tab bar). Those should be 800x800.

And it needs to be work safe!!

Yep, nothing wrong with being sexy. But work-safe sexy.

I'd like to put myself forward to be the new CaB Banner. If elected the first forum member I will ban is popcorn (obviously!).

Get rid of that madhair60 shit (replace with popular and good poster like Ferris?) and could be onto a winner.

If you're looking for the new face of CaB, well, thousands of Twitter users can't be wrong.

Maybe something like "Cook'd and Bomb'd - as trolled on Inside No. 9!"

Isn't 800x800 huge for that?

The banner should obviously be an animated gif for an optimal browsing experience.

Yes, ridiculously huge.  The current one is 22x22.

I would love to be the new banner. I can think of loads of people I'd ban straight away.

Can we get all these images to rotate randomly?

That would be ace.

There's no downside to making it bigger than it needs to be. The filesize will still be very small and it'll have the benefit of being future proof for increasingly higher resolutions.

Think we need a clear mission statement.
