Default New Logo, and new color schemes available

As you've no doubt noticed, MoM has a new logo to take advantage of the width available on this board as opposed to our original one. We've got new floating heads for you (actually, one is the same, just a diff picture of her than before).

Also, if you look in the lower left of every page you'll find a drop down box to select a color scheme for the site. Several are available, so hopefully you'll find one that suits your eyes.

Enjoy!

I love the new logo, and I'll check out the new color schemes. Although I have to admit that the blue on MoM 2 is easier on the eyes than on MoM 1...

Well, I'm glad someone else likes the blue here beter than the old site. And the logo looks great! Much more interesting.

Checked out the other options, and decided I like the default best.

I like the blue here, so I'll probably stick with it. The new heads, though... MAN! Love the improvement, and now the male half of the population might not feel left out!

I checked them all out, and am now trying blue-gray. The others looked a bit too psychedelic for me.

A couple are definitely rather psychadelic, but I liked the rest.
However, I have gone back to the default

Methinks the logo has become a banner

And we got PMD's here too?

Hmm, yes, I guess it is now a banner rather than a logo. Oh well!

I tried out all of them, but I think that the original is still the best of the lot. As for the logo / banner / thingy at the top of the page: I prefer the old one. It was less distracting.

Ah, well, at least you can scroll down so it's off the page on most screens.
