Just wanted to stop by but I really liked both of your banners, @Pachyrhinosaurus  and @stargatedalek . I also got a giggle out of that one @Loon made (and I also agree with one of your comments here to some extant, as despite how much it disappointed me upon its initial reveal, it certainly has brought some entertainment for me in the form of laughs, from the many photoshop's of it, and such). I agree with @dinotoyforum that would be excellent to use on April 1st/Fool's day maybe?

It should enable the eyes to rest a little. I don´t like too many figures. But on the other hand, the most interesting thing here is the content, not the banner. So I will accept whatever decision.

Cool, would you mind sending me the psd (or equivalent layered) file so I can make some tweaks? e.g. I would like to clean up the shadows and rearrange slightly more evenly. Unless you don't mind doing that as well, but I really would be happy to do it myself.
I use paint.net, a free photo editing program.

The ones I removed from the earlier version are still there, the little check mark next to the layer makes them visible or invisible.

Thanks, I downloaded it, but the file isn't compatible with Photoshop, which is what I use.

I was able to generate a new banner, heavily inspired by @stargatedalek's lead. I have uploaded it but it may take a short while for the cache to refresh so it appears at the top of the page.

Incredible Work! Except why is the PNSO Dakosaurus on there? Lol the Papo Giga though.

I think the BotM adult Triceratops is really early for the 2020 banner- even the backers will get their adult Trike figures in the end of 2021 and not in 2020. Just would have been practical to put something from the first wave like the Diabloceratops, the Nasutoceratops the Chasmosaurus or just the subadult Triceratops.

And I think the Safari Pachycephalosaurus could have a spot- this is the best pachycephalosaur figure.

The new banner is still not appearing at the top of the page, even though the code is updated. I can't work out which cache is serving the old header! To help me rule out whether it is a local cache or server cache, can anyone see the new banner at the top of the page yet?

@dinotoyforum I can’t see the new Banner too.

Killekor
Bigger than a camarasaurus,
and with a bite more stronger that the T-Rex bite,
Ticamasaurus is certainly the king of the Jurassic period.

With Balaur feet, dromaeosaurus bite, microraptor wings, and a terrible poison, the Deinoraptor Dromaeonychus is a lethal enemy for the most ferocious hybrid too.

Oh yes, I can see it! It's fantastic!  :))

What I have done is to go to Options, Privacy and Security, Cookies .... Clean Cookies and Cache, and then recharged it again, and yep, new banner! :D

I cleared my cookies and cache, and nothing. Still the old banner.

On a related note, I wonder if the icons for the sub-forums could be updated as well. As I don't think there's a figure used that's more recent than 2013.

Okay, I guess that means it's a browser-side cache issue if some people can see it, though I don't understand why it isn't appearing for other members who cleared their web cache. Well, it will update eventually either way. On the ATF it took a few hours to appear for me, no idea why it has taken almost a day - and still counting - on the DTF.
