    Hello all as you can see wabi-kusa.com is now glassboxgardeners.com

    The site started as a wabi kusa forum but this has now changed and now covers all areas of gardening related to aquascaping, terrascaping, aquatic, non aquatic, paludariums, terrariums etc.

    Ive now moved and added some forums into different sections of the site, if you think ive missed some? Or should move some to different sections please post here.

    Thanks for reading this, welcome to Glass Box Gardeners.

    Here is one for the "think tank boys/girls"

    I have enlarged the Glass Box Gardeners and given it a slight slope.

    In the red area, how would Logo go?

    Also Topic names a little bolder?

    The reason for suggesting this the first thing a new comer sees is that top section at the moment it seems rather flat not eye catching enough to hold there attention.

    The ASW is a good example its a different colour but you know what it represents.

    Sounds good to me Keith, a new logo is needed for sure the current one was a 5 min change from the wabi one.

    What about a scape picture? Or even a revolving one that changes each time we come to the site. Say 3 different images or more covering different subjects to the site?

    With a bolder subjects.

    One problem moving the site name to right side is the compatibility with different browsers and devices.

    I'll work on something asap.

    If any one has any very large high res images I can use for the site please contact me to arrange them to be sent to me or I can download from flickr etc.

    -serok- has some nice images I would like to use for a aquascaping image, Roy also has some nice ones wabi-kusas etc.

    Terrascaping pictures anyone?
    Paludariums anyone :)

    Thanks

    haha thanks Ev :D :victorious:

    the GBG sign i would like to add a small logo to go with it so suggestions are open to this and maybe get rid of the small grass logo we have now as that was a simple wabi type logo :/

    if anyone is a graphic designer please assist us by creating a new logo :) - transparent background thanks :encouragement:

    individual forum images sounds good to me and a great idea ill work on that over the next few days.

    "moss gardens" "experiments" great ideas :) ,what section should we place these forums terrascaping? or should we create a new section?

    p.s im stealing your photos ;)

    You are welcome Jason :D

    "experiments"? hm... maybe more often than only one time?
    Mossgarden to Terrascapes

    I think each section should get an own photo - looks better! Even photograpie, lounge etc.

    im thinking experimants in the general section or off topic?

    Ev do you have some hi resolution images of your moss scapes? to use them for the header i need a minimum of 1600 width, higher the better.

    if so pm me and ill send you my email to send them.

    thanks :)

    You've got an email Jason,

    I have not really a good idea for experiments - maybe better: each one name his threat so, if it is about an experiment in the different sections... like Glom did already.

    What is with outdoor activities in our field, bonsai, miniature gardens miniature ponds balcony etc.?

    WOW WOW

    That is a fantastic Background.

    It catches your attention immediately, this looks very interesting, I want to see what else is here.

    The Glass Box Gardeners now looks to heavy and modern, where the Mosses etc look very aged.

    Glass Box Gardeners

    Its just an idea.

    Glad you like it keith :), ive set it up so it rotates to different subject images but at this time only one image has been uploaded so im after more hi res ones.

    I agree on the font Keith, however I did try a thinner one and it was hard to read due to the backgrounds but my plan is to have a play about today with different fonts and sizes.

    I was thinking that earlier today when I saw the new header but I thought it would be a lot of work but you obversely know your around a computer.

    Is there any chance of adding another band of colour between top two green bands and placing it there in a contrasting colour to Glass Box Gardeners?

    By doing something like that it would not distract from the Header photo.

    You can use any of my photos if you want to.

    In some cases a set of 3-5 smaller photos might be of interest.

    I have changed my Avatar as well to keep up the new image, it was done by ASW

    One little concern today 14th.

    After Welcome "Keith" cannot be seen its there I think its in either a dark Green or Black, the others written in White parts of the word are in the white background.

    Just a teething concern.
