I've cleared my cookies and cache and it isn't appearing for me.

It is so odd, I don't know why it isn't updating for everyone. Including me, I still see the old version. Patience.

I can see the new banner on my mobile and on my computer too (in Hungary).


Can?

Yes, I can (even now too). There's the Shringasaurus so it's definitely the new banner. Funny because I don't know why I can see it while almost everybody can't (I certainly didn't do anything like the others wrote). I use on my mobile CCleaner so that makes some clearing of unnecessary stuff. I can only think of that and I think I switched off my mobile somewhen in the last 24-36 hours.

Huh! Well, I'm baffled, I just can't seem to get the update to show up on my devices.

 I can see the new banner. It's great :) ! Nice choices.
 Unfortunately in my case the Safari Deinonychus appears only once, right behind the DTF lettering.

Where? On your device’s settings , on Google?...   I still see the old one. I’m from Spain too.
Do you use Firefox? @Shonisaurus , @Concavenator . In Firefox, menu (right top corner, the green circle in my pic): Options --- Privacidad y Seguridad (on the left) -- cookies y datos del sitio --- Limpiar datos (on the right)

Me too, and it's my site! I've purged cookies, history, cache, shut down computer, and still the old banner persists...
But as @Duna's screenshot shows, the new banner is 'live'. I can't work it out.

Can any tech heads help me here? I updated the forum's css (index.css) to link to the new banner, but the page source shows that for me, and apparently many other members (but not all!), the page is linking to different css file (index.css?fin20). But the latter file doesn't exist in my files. The suffix ?fin20 must mean it is a cached version of the old index.css. But how do I get it to update?

No tech head here but I just noticed the New ATF banner comes in bright and crystal clear but on the DTF I see the old one as light and faded like the way the forum icons appear before you log in. My browser is Safari.

That's intentional so the title text is clearly visible (now that it overlaps a colourful background). I just forgot to lower the opacity for the equivalent ATF file when I updated it and haven't gotten around to correcting it...  :)

Not sure if this helps, but I am still getting the old banner, so I loaded the image in a separate tab and noted it had the file name dinosaur_toy_forum_background_2018.png.  Changing the year to 2020 did give me the new image (separte from the page), so the image is out available, just not chosen by the page. So if all else fails, I guess you could just change the name of the image.
