I mentioned this in a PM to chipper: Is there anyway we can change/ remove the banner? I really don't like having a huge "FORUM.DRUGS-AND-USERS.ORG" at the top of my window. Already got busted in class. I think discretion is key for HR.

IIRC, the banner was made by Taytoechip, then added by Chipper.

There used to be gallery images I think.  I wouldn't mind going back to that instead.  It would make it easier when browsing in public.
Transparency is necessary to ensure decent staff members get elected. Members need to know when staff are misbehaving, so members can be informed voters.

Yeah, I got busted at Polytech also and had to explain that it was a harm reduction site and then explain what harm reduction was/is. I got the impression that I just lost quite a bit of respect though (he's a bloody druggie scum etc).

Is it possible to be able to turn the banner off as a setting in our individual profiles? So people can choose whether it is there or not? Or maybe just have D & U Forum in the big print and the full name in smaller not so noticeable print?

Yeah, if we could turn it off that would be cool. Or just a banner that doesn't scream "drugs"? Lol

I've never designed one, but this seems kinda big. Maybe something about hr? Sorry I'm not more helpful.

the thought crossed my mind. I will move it down the end until I figure out something else.

tainted, I hope you understand. member's privacy has to take priority. but it's a great banner, all the same.

... ok, it's done; parked out back until we get a better idea. sorry Tainted, you know i love it and appreciate your hard work.

jdub, are you ok with this temporary (hopefully) fix ? ... maybe next time something along the lines of 'connecting people through discussion' ... this may take a while ...

in the future you guys should say you volunteer with needle exchange or overdose prevention and this forum is how you get to know the needs of the population who uses those services so you can help them better.
something something drug war, social justice blah blah

It was a very well done banner though so please dont think it was anything to do with the quality of the banner, Tainted.

Good idea Makita. :)

Tainted, let's have a decent think about it. D&U looks innocuous but maybe it's too short.

or we could take a vote/poll, perhaps ?

... and it's also a button, if anybody realises.

Yeah, thanks chipper.

Like others have said. Looks aren't the issue. Was just the content.

I promise im not even .000000001% upset with removing the banner!
actually, i'm more flattered than anything that chipper even used something i made in the first place.

Though i do have one small little question.
Why is everyone calling me Tainted  8)

I get you mixed up as both names sound like they start with "tay" vs. "tai".

your banner is at the bottom of the page.

looking forward to your next artwork.

I'm glad you changed the top banner. I was thinking the same thing when my now-deceased friend was in the room with me while I was browsing the forum. He said, "Drugs and Users? What's that?" I didn't want him to get wrapped up with the wrong crowd.

Same thing with Opiophile. I had had people "in the know" question me about why I was spending so much time on Opiophile before.
