They are on there - right on the front page! :eek:
(lower left hand side - fyi - they have been there since I redid the site with the new look 6 mos ago....)

Also they are listed on the the 2003 Points page as the champions... :doubt:

okay, so my buddy and i did some more work too the front end of the site. Take a look and let me know what you think. I believe this will be the basis for the rest of the layout.

Since the OH/IN region has done a very very poor job in designing a web page (it's only poor becuase there is none) can you include the champs from 03 for OH/IN as well? We also keep our points on the site and I can send you an uptodate file if you need it.

Looks good, keep up the good work.

Action shots man! A big shot of the field, or someones car on two wheels bouncing over a berm. Maybe some door to door action. By the way I am getting just a grey grid on the top now. Is that right? It did have a picture when you first changed it. Great job so far.

There still should be a picture. You might have to refresh your browser and see if it pops up. If not let me know what browser you are using and I'll test it some more.

thanks.

I look for some action shots.

Me too neither. I'm running IE 6.0. I have the same grey faded grid, but nothing else. Even after a refresh.

EDIT: I'm no html expert, but it looks like the problem is that the cars.jpg file is set to the table background while the head.png file is set to the first row. Wouldn't that case the grey grid to show on top of the cars.jpg?

chicote

Actually,

I have the png. file set so its transparent — so the cars.jpg should show through. I'll have to double check and see why your browsers are not accepting the transparencies of the .png file.

Thanks for letting me know!

Not sure if this helps any, but I'm the same as Beau in that I saw the picture a while back.

And I forgot to mention it in the last post: the site is looking most excellent! :thumbsup:

The pic a while back didn't have the png. overlay on it.

this is what it looks like on my browser: I'm using safari (a mac program)

Interesting. I like the affect. There must be some issue with png files for IE. Here's what it looks like on IE:

Oh wait, I can't post pictures here...

I'll try this:

okay, here is another site using the same style of .png with a background image behind.

the link is www.designphorum.com

here is the screen shot. (the design phorum logo is the png, let me know if it shows up gray on your browser)

Okay, that site also had a problem with .png's. Apparently IE has issues with .png's and they are not fully supported. This dissapoints me because I might have to rethink the whole structure of the site so that the majority of the viewers (pc users running IE) can make good use of the site. Unless everyone wants to download firefox here (http://www.mozilla.org/products/firefox/)

then this wouldn't be an issue and everyone would be using a very nice browser that is much more efficient and friendly than IE

I tried Firefox. I ran into problems with online banking with it. I never took the time though to find out what the problem was though.
