Look in the top left hand corner and you will see a phpbb logo. We want to replace this with something personal and trendy. Anyone have any suggestions?

Never at a loss for suggestions, especially when I do not have to implement them, how about a nice puzzling graphic:



I'll play around with your name this afternoon...

I sent one off to Stretham, but I'm fooling around with another...should be "testing" I suppose, but my brain is fried from Pluto.

And, lo, a …GREAT MULTITUDE…, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before puzzletome; And cried with a loud voice, saying, here lies frustration, toil and glory, enjoy...!



for the logo, i would like to see many riddlers, scratching their heads on some kind of desert backdrop - closest people to the front in detail, further away fade to vagueness - you know the type - would be awesome!

Some splendid suggestions, and I have to say I'm particularly impressed by Falcon's. The thing that is likely to hold us back here is bandwidth. It appears (we're not 100% certain) that the main page reloads completely every time you visit it (do you know Murphy?). As such, the logo is going to need to be something relatively small in size (memory-wise).

Falcon, how much of your image can you edit? For instance, could you remove the writing and person, resize it, put the writing as if it were IN the book and add say a quill that was being used to write puzzletome? (Not that I've thought about this at all, :roll: but do something better if you think of it.)

The overall_header.tpl and overall_footer.tpl files are the ones containing the header and the footer (obviously) and everything else is held in between. So, for example, this part of the forum is contained within a table that is opened in overall_header, but closed in the overall_footer. This, I think, saves things being reloaded unnecessarily. Either way, the image will be stored in the cache so it only needs to be downloaded the first time you visit the site, so I wouldn't worry about the bandwidth aspect of that.

What you should be concerned about is people blatantly abusing the use of smilies - but no, they don't listen do they?!!

Also to consider, avatars. Linking URL saves space and bandwidth, but you will want to write a mod restricting the size of what is allowed to be linked so you don't get huge images screwing stuff up.

Mmmm.... that'll be difficult but I'll try. When I'm done making smilies. Smile Expect a first sample of them in the smilie topic soon.

Can't wait to see the smilies and, more to the point, get rid of these ones.

One thing though, they're not allowed to be better than mine...mmmkay?

Couldn't find a decent quill pic, but I put the text on the page and made the whole thing smaller. It's now 50 kb, which is unfortunately still around 7 tiems larger than the current one. Perhaps you can prevent auto-reloading? The man and left page I can't change without making it look bad unfortunately, since it's an existing image.



Mini-quiz: The first one to give me the title of the magic: the gathering card i took this pic from has the right to feel smug at his leisure. Very Happy

Anyway, let me know if you wnat anything changed.

k, used the 3d model i made for the site layout to make a new logo. It's more clear than the other one, can't give problems with copyright and with a bit of compression is 5,7 kB. What do you think?
