We, here at the BG hangout,  would like get some feedback from the members. There has been some discussion about, whether or not, the theme of the Hangout site represents the hangout in a positive light.(i.e. the wood plank background). The question is: should we use a more modern theme for the site (similar to the look you get if you use a mobile phone to view the site?) We will, in the near future, be updating the heading at the top, but would like to know, from the members, if we should modernize the look and theme of the site as a whole. Please let us hear your opinions, and know, that it will be impossible to please everyone, but we would like to get the pulse of our Bluegrass community. We will accept feedback for approximately 5  days. Although we are posting a Yes or No poll, feel free to elaborate with a reply to this post. Thank you, in advance, for your feedback..

Personally - I think that it looks just fine !. However - the design at the top of the page could do with a smidgens of updating ie.a banjo that looks like a 5-string banjo,& a more modern (F5) mandolin design. Neither does it depict a Guitar or bass Fiddle or if you want,a Dobro (i'm not sure if Bill Monroe would approve of that though).

 Purely my 5p (UK) worth. Maybe,if it's not too expensive to do so,or inconvenient,the 'theme' could be changed every now & again,purely for variation ??. Whatever changes you do,as long as the background still makes it easy to read ie. doesn't visually overwhelm the 'topics',then it should be ok,

Okay. So after viewing, and reviewing, we have determined to leave the rustic wood at this time, but we will be updating the logo, along with adding a favon on the tab, so when multiple tabs are open, it will be easier to distinguish this site. Thank you all who participated in the great feedback. Please bare with me on any changes. I have an illness in the family and time is precious. Thanks again to everyone.

I am concerned far more with the content rather that the cosmetic aspects.
