I aint a mod but, was that was the job of mjbliemel.
It has never been taken over from when he passed away.

I have an idea, why not put this little swish up there, it took me 20 mins to get the sky to move behind the windscreen but it looks good and is a very small size 277kb

I can add a title if you wish.
comments welcome

I think the main idea before was to give many forum members the ability to showcase their car on the site banner, which any of the existing "banner rotation" hacks available for this forum SW package (vBulletin) can do very well - even changing the image with a frequency up to at each page load. (mjb was periodically manually changing the image linked to at a static URL he maintained at a different site before.)

BTW, p986, your image looks great! Most people won't have the skill or time to generate a flash image but if the hack can do any image type, then hopefully it would not matter.

Yer i see what you mean... I could get say... 12 members picture and create an animated GIF image to change every 5 seconds..

If it supports SWF then flash would be ok, but failing that GIF is just as good. I could host it on imageshack and just link off here as import image??

admin see what you can sort out...
