    ok guys, so as you have seen, I changed the header to a new layout.

    This poll is private vote, so you can go yay or nay on it and no one knows either way.

    Added in the kitco metal quoting box. New logo and background. Removed the old partial background.

    Used the GIM round, the reverse side, for the Logo. These are actual rounds that many of us have that Gim'ers designed at the time.

    I dropped the different colors for the various skins/colors/styles we have and went with one across all platforms. Black and Gold. They go together like salt and pepper.

    By all means, your opinions are welcome

    Bring it on,

    Less black. Try some earthtone such as a modern green or bronze.

    I prefer the debt is slavery side of the coin but not enough to justify a change. Somehow the fonts got changed in the black Mobil edition so the forum map header is hard to read.

    I've always been a believer of keeping is simple and to the point. The way it is now fulfills that goal. The pool is justified, just remember you can't please everyone. You could go out and hire a professional artist to create something terrific, but why spend the gold coins?

    I always liked the Kitco ticker. Is TomD still around? Maybe he can get you some better pictures of the GIM rounds. If not, I'm a photographer, and I would be willing to photograph them for you.

    I like what I'm seeing. I'm glad both the Kitco widget AND the JMBullion widget are up. Also like the GIM coin. Would be cool to set up a long interval rotation of coins in the header, like a different one every 12 hours or something just to keep it interesting. Could also add in a pic of "Helicopter Ben" or Yellen with a black eye with the old Tareyton cigarette tag line "I'd rather fight than raise rates!" or whatever else mocks the incompetents.

    Anyway, headed in a good direction!

    I left the large gap between the logo and the ticker because of small screen users.

    The smaller the screen, the more the header compresses, and smaller yet, it starts stacking.

    exactly right dacrunch,

    I am trying to be mindful of those who access on smaller screens.

    You have the same thing I see on my desktop, except I don't stretch mine so far.

    The silver coin has a simple pulchritudinous, I like it. A gold coin there would have been a bit uptown for my taste, well done Sir.

    How about this centered at the top with the Kitco ticker to the right:

    GIM Title Banner center.jpg

    And this on the left:

    GIM Title Banner left.jpg

    I made them the same height as the Kitco ticker -- 110 pixels.

    Or the Freedom Round picture could be much larger and occupy a line above or below a line with the "Gold is Money" text on the left and the Kitco ticker on the right. (To avoid stacking on narrower screens)

    To be honest, the picture has great detail on a larger scale, but the header at the top of the page shouldn't take up half the screen.

    Hey guys,

    SLV is trying to help us out come up with a new header that works for all of us.

    I like the idea of a round set in bullets, pretty cool

    Looking for ideas and input to improve it if needed

    A forum to whine. I'm not sure what happened the last time you were wrenching on the place but it seems to have upset a feature in a couple of different ways.

    When I click on a thread I've never opened before the software no longer takes me to the first post but all the way down to the last post.

    When clicking on a thread I'm familiar with it seems to take me to a random post somewhere past where it should have landed.

    Are the above problems happening to anyone else?

    The changes I have made do not affect what you state,

    But, a update on the xenforo was also ran, and that could be causing what you state.

    I would have to look around a bit to see what those settings may or may not be.

    On smaller devices I think three objects on one line would cause a lot of stacking. Tonight I might have some time to put up a revision with the same photograph that has the text incorporated and is designed to left justify.

    I like the new color of the bar (new posts etc.).

    I never changed from GIM Black and now for some reason on my iPad I can actually see the *** where one clicks to find 'new posts'. Before it was nearly invisible.

    Never was an issue on a computer because it actually says "new posts."

    It's great when "New Posts" is displayed. That's the main thing.

    I agree with New Posts. It is the way I use the site. On small screens it gets bumped down into a menu. Would be great if there was a way to move it left in the bar so it would have a prominent place. Maybe "Home" and then "New Posts", etc.

    Don't have a fancy fone but I do have a tablet, and this chromebook who's screen is no bigger than a large tablet. Use GIM Black, and I think you have it down now. Clean, simple and efficient, so stop fussin with it.

    But if you be like me, ie. never really happy, and full of what if's, I know you will be changing it some more. :-)
