The banners need to be wider. Almost every day I'm getting a split banner. it's even worse on my computer at home. DH is going blind or something, so I had to get a 27" monitor. I hate it. :(

Absolutely true. And I'm just insanely jealous of purdy flowers. LOL

I dunno, I'm having a little bit of trouble working up much sympathy for someone with a 27" monitor (let alone room to actually PUT one that big!)..... Hilarious!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Hey, it wasn't my idea! I was quite happy with my little 24", thankyouverymuch. But nooooo.. DH *had* to replace it.. Grumbling Grumbling Grumbling Now I have to sit like 5' back from the damned thing and try to use my computer that way. He *was* going to use the bedroom's 32" TV!!

Dave, perhaps you could find an emoticon that would be shaking head side to side in a NOOOOOOO type fashion. Whistling

Sometimes it would be handy..

Humph! I don't consider 24" "little" either! Hilarious! My "big" monitor is 17"!

Toni,

Kinda like the second one, if it could be added with BB coding. Dave would know.

Marilyn - You can definitely do that with the BB code. When there was a transition between Cubits & whether or not ATP was gonna come online, I created a forum for the rose people here & it's pretty simple stuff.

Dave has a lot on his plate right now. Perhaps when things settle down a bit he can consider it.

I have several banners in the queue for later in the year. I wonder if I should re-do them so that they are 1500 pixels wide.

I guess if I do that, Dave can delete the ones I uploaded before that are 1200 pixels.

I don't think it's necessary. Less than 1% of the users have such wide screens and even for them, the image repeats itself. I have no system to go through and replace upcoming banners so I don't see a justification for the effort it would take.
