Yes, I did do that.

Header might be a little big but am working on another one. That was the original made by Jack Holliday  http://www.jhillustrations.com/  (who is awesome by the way).

The red seal was made by him too. There is a much better resolution one that I am not sure what to do with yet. I have quite a few things from him for Version 6 of the website.

So, maybe you are asking why? And, of course, I retort: why not?

I did a small forum update to the core code and wasn't in the mood to start on anything else so I started twiddling with it. Never really liked the other forum look, just too lazy to fix it with so much else that needed attention. Anyway, my twiddling continued into this. Only took a couple hours but I think it feels much cleaner...except the big header.

If you like the original, you can revert back in your profile.

Profile-> Forum Profile -> Look and Layout
"Current theme" is on the top. The original one is called: "Lockmor 2.0.2 Theme"
Don't be fooled by the snapshot. That is what I used as the template to build it. 

For this one, I used the core files so it is probably a bit faster overall since there isn't anything added to it...just things removed.

I think I will try and make the current header on the main page mobile friendly. It does really suck on anything except a large computer screen and that is kinda bulls**t. No excuse!! Going to fix it. Might end up being a whole new menu...but whatever. You all are used to my experimentation by now I think. :)

Though I think that nice red seal should be for New posts, and something more subtle for no new posts.
