Wow, thanks guys! I wanted to adjust the spotlight because it looked off from the original picture being cropped.

I actually don't mind the current golden color for the text. It's not dull and it's not too bright. It is very easy on the eyes.

I just wanted to say thank you to all that liked the banner enough to post it up there and congrats on the update to the forum!

I'm glad everyone found it "tasty", but I wouldn't eat it because you never know where those pixels have been ... OK bad joke. :lol:

I understand that some like white text for reading, but if you've ever stared at white text on black for a long time, it will mess with your eyes and you'll walk away seeing text everywhere until it wears off. :lol:

This gold is still bright, but much easier on your eyes in the long run or any color that is slightly muted.

The banner definitely works. I would only alter it in one way. Since the colors in the banner are GOLD = Gibson, BLACK = Polka Dot V, & WHITE = Concorde? I still would like to see the Concorde guitar in there. I mean they built a relic of the guitar just this last year. I'd say it was an important piece of equipment in Randy's arsenal. Why not replace the right picture of the Gibson with the Concorde? You have the Gibson guitar represented in the banner twice. I'm sure many fans think the Concorde was definitely symbolic of Randy's originality. The first statue of Randy was with the Concorde as well. Long before the Polka Dot V. Those are the Holy Trinity of Randy's guitars. I'd push for the black Jackson but there are far fewer pictures of that guitar than the others. I think Randy only used it for two months if I'm not mistaken.

I don't mind replacing the image, but it's not up to me. It's up to the peeps that run the forum.

If you go to RR.us their banner uses the Polka Dot V exclusively.

If you go to RR.tk their banner uses the Polka Dot V, Classical guitar and Gibson (not shown but implied).

A banner is more than a cool image to look at. It is a story. It tells you not only who the web site is dedicated to but their personality as well. If we want to show the most complete side to Randy we (all members) should do our best to represent that with this site. If there is a limit to what can be included in the banner then there should be an attempt to be as inclusive as possible. Personally, I would like to have 5 guitars represented.

1) Gibson = Randy's Quiet Riot Days and symbolizes his teaching tool.
2) Polka Dot V = Randy's transition from QR to Ozzy's BOO days (uses Polka Dots in the finish).
3) White Jackson (which I have just been told in a PM is incorrectly called the Concorde) = Randy's original design and symbolizes style and grace.
4) Black Jackson (the real Concorde) = Randy's final days with Ozzy
5) Classical guitar = Randy's fundamental passion and true calling.

What I am hoping for is a banner that will go beyond the usual fanfare of focusing on one dimension of Randy's playing and bring a more complete view of his personality. I invite all members to have a say in what the final banner should say about Randy's life.
