Forum background images

Recommended Posts

Since December 2015 I have set the forum background image to a winter theme: https://sites.google.com/site/orionieuropa/...-protonmail.jpg

 

For the upcoming spring season, I was thinking of changing to something else. And, as always, this is open to suggestion.

 

When summer comes around, I may go with this desert scene although nothing is set in stone:

And then of course there is autumn.

How about a nice field with blossoming flowers. Or something similar?

Certainly possible. Feel free to share some links. I can always try and see if things are compatible with our blue colour scheme.

Perhaps I can change the snowflakes into flowers and we can all become hippies.

Can't we add that as a feature? I've seen another invisionfree board that has it.

InvisionPower has it. I'm unsure if InvisionFree can replicate this. Giving everyone the possibility to upvote something would mean storing this information in a database somewhere. I highly doubt that a free script would be able to do this. Maybe locally, by storing the info in a browser cookie, but only you would be able to see that.

Thank you very much every. smile.gif I can work with these ideas. When spring comes around you'll notice the changes and see the final results.

Ah. I only noticed they both were zIFBoards and had the invisionfree address.

 

That forum says "Powered by IPDynamic Lite" but when one clicks it it re-directs to https://www.invisionpower.com/ just like our "Powered by Invision Power Board" link does.

 

They had like and dislike buttons, but named differently. But I notice now that that forum doesn't anymore.

The service we use, InvisionFree, is a licensed version of InvisionPower Board v1.3. Throughout the years the original has been updated quite a lot, being at v4 right now. However, we who use this free, licensed version do not benefit from this. The two are different companies. That is the reason why there is such a lively hacking community around InvisionFree, because that is the only way to add new features.

 

I have already investigated what it would costs to export our database and import it into a paid version of InvisionPower. Quite costly to say the least.

Updating the winter mountain background image https://sites.google.com/site/orionieuropa/...-protonmail.jpg to something else for this summer, based on the suggestions made above.

 

These were the final choices:

* Desert sands http://www.walldevil.com/wallpapers/w17/pi...wers-spring.jpg

* Spring flowers http://www.walldevil.com/wallpapers/w17/pi...wers-spring.jpg

* Green sunrise http://kingofwallpapers.com/spring/spring-028.jpg

This past spring we sported a sunny and green landscape. https://sites.google.com/site/orionieuropa/green-sunrise.jpg

 

Today I am changing this to a more maritime theme, in the hope of prompting more RP-action. https://sites.google.com/site/orionieuropa/navy-fleet.jpg

Spring has come around again, so back to a green landscape we go. smile.gifhttps://sites.google.com/site/orionieuropa/...ican-meteor.jpg

 

I had toyed with making the blue horizontal title bar into green as well, but that just looked weird.

 

Still, if anyone wishes to propose the next background image, this suggestion box remains open.

Not sure how you guys are doing, but where I live it has been really sunny these past weeks. Time to shed our spring theme and choose a summer background image.

 

These are the proposals we had last year. Everyone is invited to share their own proposals. We will decide with a simple poll.

 

1. Desert sands https://whois.domaintools.com/images/backgr...esert-hills.jpg

2. Spring flowers https://www.walldevil.com/wallpapers/w17/pi...wers-spring.jpg

3. Green sunrise http://kingofwallpapers.com/spring/spring-028.jpg

4. One of these other nature pictures http://hdwpro.com/category/nature

I was thinking about that, but I think taking pride in being a part of Europa is more important than foolish local patriotism. Of course the last picture was taken on the cliffs of Liberty Island. ^^

 

...not that I would mind looking at some beautiful Sunset Sea Islandian beaches...

    • Samura Heavy Industries was the very first Keiretsu to come into existence, founded in 1872 by Masamune Samura. He had a very close relationship with the reigning Emperor who entrusted him in developing Kipan's industrial capacity by using the technological advancements in manufacturing and resource extraction that were flowing into the islands due to the Udo Transformation. In short order, Samura raised a vast industrial empire. The corporation has maintained its firm grip over a huge swath of the economy for generations and has no intention of letting up. Samura has an 'understanding' with the Hogosha ('protectors'), a quasi-legitimate organization who provide brute muscle and guard Samura's assets. Although it's at the top of the "Big Ten," they are very aware of the Sato Corporation's rapid growth. Over much of its history, Samura has been a predominant supplier to the military, alongside their closest business ally, Obata. The industries Samura focuses on include chemicals, mining & metallurgy, steel production, forestry, oil & petrochemicals, concrete, construction, shipbuilding, timber & paper products, power plants, arms manufacturing, aviation, machinery, glass, and aluminum.

    • The Sato Corporation is one of Kipan's large, vertical group of enterprises, or keiretsu, owned by the beautiful and intelligent Asami Sato. Amongst the various business empires, Sato is the youngest of the "Big Ten" keiretsus, and while it is not nearly as expansive as Samura Heavy Industries, Sato is rapidly growing both in market share and political power - a combination the other nine wish to impede at all costs. The company originally started as an automotive manufacturer, constructing cars that were practical and affordable for the common man. Millions of cars on Kipan's roads can be traced back to Sato's assembly lines. Though automobiles remains a core product of the Corporation, under Asami, the Sato Corporation has seen tremendous growth in the length and breadth of businesses it is involved in. This includes real estate, cosmetics & fragrances, department stores, hotels, textiles, advertising, cameras, optics & imaging, a range of day-to-day household and consumer products, supermarkets, telecommunications, and rubber products. And the list keeps growing. Sato has their own racing team with the car driven by the CEO no less.
