OK Arthur, I get it – low priority. But c'mon — you know as well as I do that's a pretty weak solution. The welcome/front-page deserves a big hairy graphic, but after we've said hello & logged in, we're trying to move around the site & get stuff done. The mega-header is just in the way at that point.
However, I also have to say… the site looks great, and I'm really glad we switched over. Thanks!
