Recent discussions indicate many people would like to consider a new graphic for the banner of the forum. The question is, who is in favor of changing it, keeping it, or just don't care? The poll will run for 30 days and we'll see where we are at that time.

If we decide we'd like to change it, the next challenge is coming up with a quality graphic with the following characteristics.

Thanks John for starting the poll.

My choice.
The good old CNJ.
Nice and weathered too.:):thumbsup:

But one of his 4014 would look nice too.

Like tworail mentioned, a rotating picture of a few different ones would be nice if that could be done.

But that will come later if enough vote to change.
Thank :smokin:

I think the real questions are: What should we change it to? How do we decide that question (majority vote?) How willingly will the losers accept the decision?

After the birthday brouhaha, I just don't know!

As John said, the real question here is should we change it.
The rest comes later.

That is what the poll is for, yes/ no/ or don't care. :smokin:

Yes change it.

John;

I think it's time for a baner change. While we're on the subject of changing things on the forum, how about updating the printed descriptions attached to the scale sections. The N-scale section still says it includes discussion of "Gram Farish" trains! Really, they went out of business years ago. I don't think "Minitrix" or "Life-Like" are particularly representative of current N-scale either. Kato is a major N-scale brand that is conspicuously absent. Things have advanced just a wee bit in N-scale since the 1970's! :eek:

I wouldn't mind a change, although it's a great image.

I would recommend an ever-changing image from a set of arguably 'superior' proto and model images that their authors would give permission to use. That is, from a pool of available images, whether 20 or 2000, they should perhaps appear once per visit, or change every 10 seconds on a marquee as happens at other hobby sites.

Personally, I don't notice it. I like it the way it is, because without really seeing it, I know I'm on the correct website.

maybe each thread from the main page can have a different train.

that would create 36 different train pictures.

just a thought.

lets explore every possibility.

but definitely change the main picture.

I would like to see the 4014 bigboy a model or the real one.
