The word "friendliest" is split over 2 lines for some reason...
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

There's a space between the 'i' and the 'e'; it renders on one line (but with a gap) on my desktop. I think the file that needs modifying is template.php - if you're feeling brave you could let me do the edit.

Yeah, template.php is the one, the text is in the function that builds the sidebar. I was thinking that it would maybe make more sense to have a post somewhere which contains the welcome message, and get the message from there. I can do that tonight if people think it makes sense.

It makes sense to me - it means we can alter the welcome message without having to go delving into the files, and it saves you from having to do maintenance on it in future. if there are any other similar pieces of text, I suggest you do the same with them. We just need to ensure that nothing will go wrong if there's a spambot posting, for example, but that's probably as simple as locking the relevant thread.

I've done that now, just edit this post to change the welcome message in future.

So I'm pretty crappy at editing the banner, but nobody else got round to it, so I did my best in minimal time :s

Ah, F5 is my friend, as ever. Many thanks for doing it; my image-editing skills are non-existent.

Is there any way to force browsers to update their cached images when we change the banner?

Looks like we can probably trick it into reloading the cache when the image changes, I'll have a mess around with it tomorrow.

I think so. Furl it up and keep it ready for next year.
