As for last week's two polls ("What do you think of the new sidebar?" and "What do you think of the background?"), here are the results:
It's good to see the sidebar is a hit. It would have sucked to work so hard on something that no one liked. As for the background, the reason it's important to go with a pattern instead of a photo like the foggy forest is that for people with larger screen resolutions, the photo is going to repeat and just look cheesy. If I use a larger image to accomodate these people, then those of you with smaller resolutions are going to see a zoomed-in version of the image and not the whole thing. It's just a mixed bag, so it's usually better to go with a pattern that can repeat itself until it's heart is content and still look good.
I hope that you all will grow to like it, or at least be able to overlook it for the sake of the content. Thanks for hanging in there with me.
