    Thanks to those that have started posting some artwork for this. I am incredibly impressed with everything posted. Looking at the two banners, I honestly love both the simplicity of Irkalla's banner (and of course the font!) and the aesthetics of Leugi's banner.

    One point on banners is scaling them to fit the user screen. Not sure what the "typical" resolution is nowadays - suspect 1920 * 1080. However, on the iPad this is terrible. We actually have a "Fixed Width" theme, and if someone were interested in scaling their themes for mobile devices, that would be great.

    It'd be impossible to find out. Steam is a program and draws specifications from your computer. I guess Ainwood could post a site-wide poll but it'd be shoddy information as there are more guests than members and most wouldn't vote.

    As a new member, I think the new look of the website needs to be a bit more simpler
    The website design is a bit confusing and are too many links and tabs to look at. Sacry as a newcomer :undecide:

    I think that we need to make it much more user friendly. Also, the website doesn't tell, BAM... CIV 5 , it could be any other blog and thread website we need to capture another image for the website, something that says civ.

    Admittedly, I'm not a newcomer but remembering when I was, one of the things that I liked about CFC was the layout. I didn't find it confusing then and don't now.

    I am using the Civ V Revised theme, looks amazing, but can it be scaled to fit a 1280x800? I feel that the author made it to fit a bigger monitor.
