I agree with the zebra. And we could also try with a new logo, instead of a random mane six image. That's an option!

I'm not sure what made you think this isn't intentional.

I never said it wasn't intentional just that I think it would be more aesthetically pleasing behind the bar rather than in front of it!
Minor thing though.

Is there a way to cycle through Banners?
As in, have a selection then whichever one loads is randomized upon refreshing?
Like 4chan's banners.

Yes it's pretty simple. Mayday has also said we can do that so looks like we won't have to choose just one.

Eggcelent!
I know Sapph is working on the headers as well (the RED text).
What about the bottom-page image?

I've been planning on doing something for that myself but haven't gotten around to it. As usually anypony else is free to offer their ideas and mockups

I did some samples. Here they are. Also, if anypony needs a Vector-file version of the favicon of the site (i.e. the little pink circle with the rainbow 'F' in it), just let me know. I made one.

I love all of them.
Avarick drew one up, which I will preemptively post.

Thanks for posting it for me! Also, I likes #1 and #2 from the previous post. Could even use one for top and one for bottom of the page so they match

Just a note... on the main page, the word "Highlight" is spelled "Hightlight."
'But I don't want to go among mad people,' Alice remarked.
'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here.'

I noticed that too...just now!
I'd like to suggest that the new navigation bar (which is great!) perhaps have an additional Wiki button, perhaps with Apples? Or Twilight with Wiki, Apples with Rules?
I also appreciate having the Sun and Moon link to the Announcements and About Us respectively, but it would be nice to have those labelled, since those are pages a lot of users don't know exist in the first place....for some reason.

I, too, was thinking a Wiki link would be nice. Especially since it could get AJ on the map. :)

I think #2 posted by Ayame looks fantastic and it would be a refreshing updated to our out-dated graphic. Avarick, your logo looks very nice but I'm not sure it would be very readable when sized down.

I made such a button, it's just not up yet.
