Hey Brad -

Do my eyes deceive me, or did I actually detect a visual glitch in the new brown header photo with the 3 cairn heads? (Or perhaps it would qualify as a typo?)...

The title reads: CairnTalk .net 

Shouldn't it read as: CairnTalk.net as one word without an open space between letter k and . ?

If I'm wrong, I apologize and hope you won't hate me for being such a ****. But if I'm right, it's just because I can't help myself - catching typos, (other than my own) is just about my favorite thing to do!:P

P.S. I'm not sure if "Forum Support" was the right place to put this entry, but I was unable to find a forum called "No-Man's Land."

This is the place. And I consider pointing out typos the work of angels :halo: If only life itself came with an editor.

Oddly enough though I recently added that space in deliberately. My thought process (for what little it's worth :P) was along the lines of CairnTalk being the everyday casual site name while the .net adds the address. 

Previously I made the distinction using a different color (and/or font-size) for the .net part. That involves editing the underlying HTML which gets overwritten whenever I have to reinstall a theme. I'm getting lazier and the site name is in a setting file that's easier to get to and survives most updates.  

My other concern with a color shift was having to be mindful of each of the possible header backgrounds from the picker. 

I don't want to cause unnecessary stress and I don't want to contribute to a decline in typographical literacy so I'll probably delete the space and try another approach. Or do nothing. Nothing is also possible :P

I had second thoughts about sending my email, thinking it might have sounded snarky and I hope it didn't come across that way. (I agree that a color change for .net would have been a nice design solution, had it been practical).

Thanks for being such a good sport, Brad!

Pretty much the opposite of snarky, I'd say. I'm interested to hear when something gets noticed for better or worse.

As I mentioned, I hold editors, proofreaders and extra sets of eyes in high regard. Even when sometimes I have to say, "Er, I meant to do that :whistle: " or "Uh, thanks for your input." :)
