No I'm sure that poster seriously believes the world revolves around the USA.




It does, or haven't you noticed everyone always talking about us all day everyday.

I bet not a day goes by that most people of the world do not either say or hear somthing about the US.

We are the Kardashians, but on the geopolitical stage instead of entertainment TV.

I am not american... When I log in in the morning, the last thing I wanna see is angry US policemen and / or collapsed world trade centers plastered over the whole page. So heavy with negativity... I like better ATS background to stay as clean and politically neutral as possible.

Plus, minimal images would make it easier to load on my computer. Some of my devices which have limited bandwith still crash at loading simple animated gif avatars... Now you're going to add some more scroll-triggered JavaScript functions and make the background image-heavy....

Keep it clean and neutral. Why not use something in the lines of:



or



or perhaps even



(Images not mine; only posted here for illustration purposes)

(Also, remember most of us are using the dark theme. )

Just my two cents anyway.

Here's where I could use your help... what other iconic imagery would you like to see rotating in the background of our site home page?


It's a cool idea, but I don't think there's a way to make it not tacky.

I don't usually see the front page. If I saw that sort of thing first time, I wouldn't come back.

The sidebar nonsense has taken me a LONG time to tune out. Remember how much backlash there was when you put certain images on the sidebars? I made an ass of myself. Then again, someone thought an iconic image was an iconic image. I'd never seen it before. Didn't last long...

Why is this a thing? Why don't you fix glaringly obvious problems like the member join date stuff first? The million star glitch has been a PITA for awhile.

Dude. ATS isn't good right now. Fix the screw ups, then worry about pictures. You're the man, you do a ton of the work. Fix the blatant screw ups before you start a new project.

I'm a mess SO, but I know that I need to to take the laundry out of the dryer before I load more in.

I would go for mass invasion picture across the borders in EU and America. That is what is happening now and would send a message that ATS is up to date on current events.

SO,


I like admire the distance's idea.

each forum should have its own background. the moderators for each forum can choose a picture for the month that will be the background. then from there, the image on the homepage can be a random image from a random forum and can change each day.

a reply to Razmijix:

Not kidding at all. Of course ATS has members all over the world. And each and every one of them enjoy the freedom to speak their minds here. Showing one flag is not disrespecting any others. My intent was a reminder of free speech and freedom of the press to tell the truth, even when others in the same field fail to do so.

On a side note: I will never be ashamed or consider it joking to fly the flag high and proud. It is not exclusionary. By its very nature it welcomes all who enjoy freedom and wish to be part of the great melting pot.

You've had pretty good judgement in the past regarding changes but I don't know about background images. If you're going to go for it maybe just neutral images would be best. Otherwise you might have to create a new forum to discuss the hidden messages in your imagery lol.

1. Please get rid of the blinding white background. Black is suited to the #1 conspiracy site on the web.

2. As to background images, how about a few UFO's?

3. On another forum I belong to they have a handy floating thing on the right side of the window with Up and Down arrows, so you can go to the top or bottom from any point in the page. Wonderful option to have.

First thing that always comes to mind for me: The American flag with the Bill of Rights as an overlay.
Second: a donkey and an elephant on one side of the screen, a large bald eagle head with piercing eyes on the other staring them down.
Third: the scales of justice with armed guards.

Just a few to get started...



We have members from all over the world, not only the US. Don't want to alienate anyone?

Side images?

meh...?

I'll have it zoomed in so that what's great about this site (the threads, discussions within them, and the links provided by active members) will be all that's visible on my screen.

hi skeptic, did you also change the pages on your mobile site, i had the recent posts page saved on my phone but when i openned the page it comes up on the forums page with a gray background and large black letters, but then it disappears very quickly to a differant forums page, but with very small letters in yellow on a dark brown background.

These are the only 2 pages that i can access, no homepage or any headings.

My phone is older, as i am, so i do need to upgrade but just wondering if you guys changed the mobile site pages as well, thanks.

Have you tried the dark format? Click the circle at the top right of your screen - that's half white and half dark colored.

Dont think the American flag's a good idea. This is an international site serving all countries. Now, a rotation of flags from the world? That would be great.....

There have been no changes to the mobile site. Can you get a screen shot so I can see what you're seeing?

Everything will be addressed, as alluded to in the opening post.

However, I'm not aware of an issue with the member join date.

Lovely, but could we have one border with butterflies and faeries, or maybe aliens, or how about one with an ancient archaeological site.

Or maybe the borders could switch throughout the day, so we don't have to look at death and destruction all the time.
