A few changes . . .

I've just tidied up the home page a bit, and added a new "random photo" feature to showcase some of the great photos that have been uploaded to the forums. If you have a picture you'd like to see included then you can add it to the Home page photo nominations thread.

I've also increased the maximum image size to 800 x 800 which means that the picture quality should be better too

Just one thing - it may be a little difficult for people to spot how to advance into the site - how about making the link a little bigger or more obvious - only a little though - no flashing neons!!!

Just noticed - you can click on the pic rather than the little banner - still some idiots will miss it - like me!!!

The picture is randomly selected from a couple of dozen at the moment, with more to be added soon. Do you have a measurement for randomness?

Of course!!!

Anyway I normally praise your site up to everyone - I just felt that such an excellent site deserved higher res piccies.

I thought it was quite easy: there's the main menu at the top of the page, the headline link, the clickable image, and a link in the text below.

There's always room for improvement though, so I've done some fine tuning and made the blue headline link a bit bigger.

How's that?

John
