The Banner Builder has been revamped to make it easier to create great-looking banners, incorporating new features as well.  A couple more options are available, and you can now select a background image that will appear behind your banner.  Think of it as a banner under your banner.  An under-banner.  Yeah.

Take a look in the Control Panel, under Style Tools.  You'll notice there's also an option to share banner background images you upload, should you choose to.

Oh, also, when you get all crazy and the like with the banner builder and share the banner backgrounds you upload, they'll come along with any themes you share, as well.  We're slowly moving towards a more community-driven approach to things like themes, spotlight approval, custom icons, etc.  Of course, there'll always be the first line of defense, where I click a button like a monkey to ensure that no horrifying images (say, a vicious raccoon devouring a doll) make it into the wild.

Also, the Control Panel has been cleaned up a bit.  Things make less nonsense, now.  It's all part of an elaborate new process we've adopted, called "reducing the suck factor."  We quite like it.

Tomorrow's going to be blocked off for support tickets. We will be barricaded in our offices.  Anyone attempting to breach the perimeter will be disemboweled by our bloodthirsty Aussie Shepherd.  Oh, and go visit GamerFables for some good reads.  It <3 U.
