    New Background...

    Hi, everyone. I'm wondering why there hasn't been a new background on the website? It's been forever! Shouldn't there have been an update with the new era?
    I'm an original fan...posted on this website in the beginning...longtime lurker!!! Literally check the website every day. So, don't hate me! I just wonder what we have to do to make the website more current...

    The new owners just don't seem to care very much.

    The site background was the Good Girl single cover for a REALLY long time, I made this new one when the GH era came around and asked the site owners to update it...if we can get the owners on board I'd be more than happy to make another one with a more current image.

    Also, just a disclaimer, I have no idea why there is a blue bar under the picture...that was NOT part of the design ;p Not sure if that can be removes/changed colors...

    I have Chris's email. I was corresponding with him when we were having some issues with the site a while back. I can ask him for the dimensions and see if he would be willing to update. Mike, would you be willing to do a new banner?

    Mike, Chris emailed me and said the dimensions for the banner/header are 1920x240. I mentioned the blue bar under the current banner, so I hope the dimensions he gave me will fix that.

    What about a background inspired on the Storyteller Tour?
    I think it's appropriate with all the rumors about the DVD

    I like that idea! It may seem silly, but I would prefer more current, 2016, pictures with her new haircut than the Storyteller album photos. They are gorgeous, but that isn't what she looks like anymore.

    Agreed, me too.
    As much as I prefer her with long hair, she's been sporting short hair for a year now, so a banner with Storyteller Tour pics would be ideal.

    My mom doesn't like Carrie's short hair, she says it makes her look older, and many other people have said the same thing to me.
    Funny, I went to my doctor appointment wearing a Carrie shirt with a Storyteller photoshoot pic (long hair). She asked me if such picture was from 10 years ago, as she looks so young on it. She couldn't believe me when I said she was already in her 30s on the photo.

    I actually like that she looks older. The extensions, especially on the red carpet, had a tendency to look kind of high school prom-ish to me. Now, she looks more sleek, poised to me.

    I hope she never brings back the extensions, but I do prefer her new cut when it has had some time to grow out just a little bit and is brushing her shoulders. It helps to soften her features, which can appear sharp because she is so slim. I like her hair best when it is just below her shoulders and is all natural without the extensions.

    These dimensions definitely don't take into account that blue bar...not sure what that is.

    The height of the picture above the blue bar is actually less than 240 pixels, so that number is confusing me a bit...nonetheless, I will make the banner with those dimensions if that's what he said.

    Hmmm, I don't know much of anything about graphics! I guess give it a try and I can email it to him and we'll see what happens. I guess we can adjust the size if it doesn't fit?

    Yeah I guess we'll have to...without the correct dimensions though it's kindda a shot in the dark.

    This is how the current banner was designed to look on the site:


    but when it was uploaded it looked very different...it'd be much easier to make if i knew what it would look like once it's uploaded, guess that's not possible though

    Lol, thanks! I'll PM you my email address so you can send it to me when it's done, although you can post it here first if you want to see what everyone thinks!

    Hey guys,

    Here's what I've done with the banner:


    I read through the comments here, so to try to make everyone happy I used a 2016 photoshoot photo, a Storyteller album photo, and a Storyteller Tour photo...if no one passionately hates it we can email the site owner and try to get it uploaded ASAP (:
