Hey Everyone!

I photoshopped the "famous" Welcome to Las Vegas sign (which dates back to 1959) to make it: Welcome to (fabulous) ADISC!

background info on the original Welcome to Vegas sign:

And here's the touched-up sign:

feel free to use it to welcome new members! =)

I think it would be kinda fun to have a changing banner like some other sites (namely FA). They could be submitted by some of the great artists on this site. I dunno how hard it is to change the logo in vBulletin, but it could be fun.

But i would assume it would have to be original art, because i would assume the design of the Las Vegas sign is copyrighted some how. But that is a great job of editing it.

Oh, if anyone here knows if that sign is copyrighted,
let me know, i will take down that image, and find something better, so we dont get sued!

I have no clue. BUT, i really seen a similar photoshop Las Vegas Sign in some ad for something else,
then again, that ad might have had permission (and maybe not) to copy the Vegas sign. I have no clue. I just thought it was fun (to make that sign), now I'm having second thoughts! (I'm open to suggestions and feedback)

I dont think we would get sued if a user like yourself or me used that image. But if the site itself used it in some official capacity, then maybe. I was suggesting a banner contest type thing where users could draw their own art and it could replace 'ADISC' on the top of the menu. But it may not be a great idea, cause one thing that is nice about ADISC, is someone could walk by and not see any graphics that would make them think it was a daiper site.

Ah back in the old days we used to have changing logos! I'll always remember the good old 'spring banner outrage' of some year.... Some time ago. The lines didn't join up in some of the themes with the rest of the top part of the site and everyone was in outrage!

Typical me didn't even notice...

Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas sign - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia and,
Welcome to Las Vegas sign Las Vegas Nevada - VEGAS.com


And here's the touched-up sign:

So:

(1) Using that image as our logo: not possible as it does not fit our themes.

(2) Using that image to welcome new members: Sure, go for it!

(3) Having rotating banners on the site: Not currently planned, but may happen later. Personally I always try to put more effort into content, rather than trying to rotate the artwork.
