    There should have been a poll about that...

    Why was it removed?

      I wrote a patch to remove it last december. My unwritten argument was that the monastery can be confusing enough to a newbie without unnecessary banners. There are no longer any new quests posted, and the poll ideas quest concerns only a few monks and they can find it from How do I create a Poll?, we should not advertise this quest with a banner on the front page.

      Corion has applied the patch when as a reaction to this thread I have pointed out that the banner can actually confuse monks.

        Gee, now I feel kinda guilty.

        Honest, I think it really was kind of confusing, or at least distracting. Context is a funny thing, and the 1st time I encountered your (former) banner mine included alot of poking/messing around with various Unauthorized/BlackHat editions of Windows XP. I'd just left a short-term contract with a firm that was running into problems because they refused to adopt Windows Vista. When I saw 'Mega XP' I thought to myself 'Wow! XP in Perl?' And my (unrealistic, I guess) hopes really were dashed.

        What about the "Donations gladly accepted" banner? Is it still true?

    Didn't there used to be front-paged nodes on that page?

    Anne

      That is the front page, hence why it's displaying nodes that get "Front-paged".

        marto, I'm actually not seeing anything on the front page besides the title. Are there front paged nodes there at the moment? Do you know what would cause that? I don't see anything in my settings that would affect the front page.

    Oh, foo!   I liked it.   “Bad” dog... no biscuit!”   ;-)   Go put it back.   There’s no law about having a quirky sense of humor ... especially in a monastery.   :-)
