• Please remember that Politics, Off Topic and Global Warming boards are for fairly serious discussion. I would like to see language used in those boards reflect that level of serious discussion. Sand Pit, Members. Improvements—go your hardest.

Second lot of improvements

As well as getting a much better logo and header I have asked the developer re pictures against each board.

Oh—the developer is creating a small pug in so that when someone registers using the new registration window a PM is sent to Admins. So a new member can be quickly vetted—no spam wanted! The member applying to join has to tick that he has read the rules—no argument down the track!

Yeah—make it a 3 way Conversation and whoever is on board can do the vetting—can instruct mothra to do it I am sure.

As to the board pictures—they need to be simple so they can be reduced to a very small size and still make sense. How big—dunno. As big as poss I guess?

Politics—Australian Parliament House?

Off Topic—loaf of bread (food) or a rake (gardening) or an arrow way off the bulls eye?

Global warming—temperature graph? Is a simple line drawing should reduce really well.

Sand Pit—bucket and spade as used by kids on the beach.


Please post images and the board you think the image applies to and I will shrink them to 200 x 200 pixels, see how clear they look. Don’t post really busy photographs—will look like a blur.

It looks nice. We could use an Australian flag with the union jack photoshopped out.

Nah, could mean anything. Lunar or space exploration. Needs something to indicate heat. Hell, “CO2” with a suitable font and color or color gradient (blue to red) would do.

Off Topic is difficult. So many topics! And a small image. A flower and a load of bread? Glass of beer—bit more casual and wide ranging topics?Dunno.

For Off-Topic ? a Pineapple.

With a straw hanging out of it, if you insist. Or a Coconut.

And for Climate change how about a pic of our beautiful Earth with a big question mark over it... or...............

A picture taken from the fires.. of 2019-2020.

The fires—now you have something! Now to find a copyright image suitable to shrink. From the ABC website I suppose?

I'd think so or any other published on-line photos
like that one of the Kangaroo being caught full-out in front of a vast wall of flames..? that was seen around the world.

No. It ws on the front page of many Newspapers, plus yeah ABC NEWS. It was obviously in NSW during those huge fires. It was caught on camera because it was going past on old historic homestead that was burning. Maybe Conargo? The Roo just happened to race for it's life as the pic was taken.
