Post by Codes-man on April 26th 2009, 9:50 am

Hi i think the support forum should have a new banner because the current one is just boring and verry old

I disagree. The members don't come for the logo, it's the information the forum provides.

Eclinez does have a good point. on the other hand, having a newly made and refreshing banner may attract more members. And having a new banner doesn't change the information that the forum contains so it might be a good thing. I'm for it.

as explained in darrens link,
the current banner and forum style is default for all the support forums ... (with a few changed obviously)

The banner is like a trademark ... it will change only if the theme is changed.
You don't go to nike's forums and say that their Nike tick is a little old and it'll bring new members if we make 2 ticks?
Remember that this is a support forum ... not some general discussion forum for socialising ... people are supposed to come here to get support and leave ... (at least till the next problem).


There are a lot of members that hang around this support forum, with a 1000 posts , contributing to the GD for example .... (totally missing the point) ...

Just because the banner is old to the current members doesn't mean it will be old to all of the new members. It needs to stay.

I am sure I also had such a topic.. I vote yes..

I ll half agree with Fusion and Jalokim and hlaf disagree.. when you go to Google on 1st may you see another logo, when you go on the CERN day you see another logo..

http://www.google.com/holidaylogos.html

new year logo, earth day logo...

So maybe we could have the same logo BUT not changing all the time.. who'd make it? but for Winter, Summer, Autumn,Spring (seasons)
and special days as FM anniversary

That does make sense, but the banner should be changed only on holidays.

I remind you guys once again ... this is a support site ...
we can compare it to a mac drive ...
you drive up in your fancy Ford Mondeo, order a few burgers,chips and a soda... the lady will interest you in some special offer, you refuse ... then you drive away happy because you'll get fed real soon...

our support forum is identical
you log on... you have a problem so you ask for help ... someone posts spam, you refuse that ... and you walk away happy with your forum fixed as soon as the meal (or a staff member) helps you with your problem...

Razz

we don't want to attract more members ...
we are only here to offer support, and you are here to gain support
Its like I've said this 3 times today ... a support site is not a general discussion forum, like you guys have... we don't advertise, we don't hunt for members.
