Yeah, I liked that Reddit one, too. Obviously, wouldn't want to get this too cluttered, but those empty spots are just begging for some kind of non-trademark infringing Cubs/site logo.

Maybe a custom logo on the left and the W flag on the right?

I say a cutout of Kawasaki's face on either side, facing the banner. I offer this pic as a potential source image.

That Reddit banner was a mixture of graphics and CSS code. On Reddit they let you edit the headers with custom design code.

I was messing around in photoshop and came up with this as a full sized banner rather than just the text. it's not terribly flashy, but it might look better than just having the text up there.

Yeah, I've saved that one to the hd already. I'll see what I can do to use that as a header background image instead of the blue

Taken from imb's thread: lose the ".com" and make it "North Side Baseball" so it's more legible. This isn't 1994.

I can set it as the background image, but then I'll need a clear image of the same size so that the box doesn't shrink. Just haven't gotten to it yet.

As for NSB...I'm torn. NSB makes more sense, but NSBB is the legacy.

NSB makes more sense, especially post-sale.

I guess it's kinda like how hccf was inexplicably hccf instead of hcf.

It may be a "change is bad" reaction, but the NSB thing just looks wrong. I can deal with it under the banner...that's easily ignored. But seeing it on my browser tab all the time...it's like nails on a chalkboard.

Can we get the "new posts" link outside of the dropdown menu like it used to be?
