Updating the MelindasBackups banner
« on: July 07, 2010, 01:07:16 am »
There has been some suggestions that maybe it is time to update our banner on the main backups page (http://www.melindasbackups.com). 

The current banner contains older pictures of Melinda from when she wore a wig (picture 1 below).

Mu has come up with alternate banners using more recent pictures of Melinda (pictures 2 - 4 below).

If we wish, the banners can be rotated.  Alan has indicated he has two possible ways of rotating pictures used in the banner.  He could the banners based on a time delay or randomly pick a banner whenever the page is clicked on.

I thought I would post the banners currently up for debate for a week or so and let everyone discuss them.  If someone has an idea that isn't included below, feel free to suggest it.

Then sometime next week (probably Tuesday evening if the discussion has subsided), I will put up a poll and we can vote on whether to:
a) keep the current banner
b) replace the current banner with just one new banner
c) replace the current banner with multiple new banners

Of course, all of this is subject to Kelley's approval.  Once the backups have decided what we'd like to do, someone will email Kelley to get her stamp of approval.

I like both the pictures on the left from 1 and 2.  Hmm, wonder if Mu will make another banner ...

I like them all because they all show a little different side of her...so I would like to see them all get rotated in...

I can't pick one without seeing them, but I love the idea of rotating the pictures, so you see something new each time you log on. Smiley

I know you all are just going to love this .  .  .  but we need a new group picture on the front.   I think the reasons are obvious.

I didn't put up a poll yet.  In the very first post, I said I'd probably do it Tuesday (tomorrow) but I may get to it tonight.  Tomorrow at the latest.
