    You might have noticed we just re-installed the rotating images. Note I say 're-installed' so before any plebs jump on the bandwagon and say we copied everyone else, remember, we were first and discontinued it when we got bored of being copied.

    Anyway, we've a spare bit of space in the header so the rotating images have been reinstated, for the time being.

    There's current about 1300+ images in the directory, but it's always good to have more. They're easy to make and I'll show you how here...

    1) Install the LightShot plugin or software

    Whatever your browser is, there is a plugin...
    Chrome: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mbniclmhobmnbdlbpiphghaielnnpgdp
    Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/lightshot/
    Internet Exploder: http://download.cnet.com/LightShot-for-Internet-Explorer/3000-12512_4-11453893.html

    There's also an installable version that can take shots of anything on your screen, not just your browser.... http://www.skillbrains.com/

    2) When you see something that would look good as a 800 x 80 pixels banner, just click the 'feather' symbol, the screen darkens and you use the mouse to select an area. The size of that area is indicated. The selected area can be moved with the mouse.

    3) Once you have selected the area, just click the 'save' icon and it will save the image to your hard drive. You can change the directory and name at this stage. Save it as a .jpg file.

    4) Upload it to your normal image host, then display them here, or email them to me. Either way I'll grab them and add them to the directory.

    Thanks ! :thumb

    Why not take some quotes out of the papers they published about us, like the Reckless and Irresponsible blah blah blah

    can you get the banners to self rotate rather than them changing when moving around the forum? would make the scroll a lot faster
