Default Will there be a Concrete & Gold skin for board?

Changed mine to the LP8 skin and I think it could almost pass as the C&G skin. Simon? You working on one?

If we get support from the main site, yes. If we don't then Simon will do his magic. I am hoping and I have asked that we get a new board software. Simon has been (hopefully) working with the tech team at SAM to get something good for all.

We haven't had technical support from management since our last official webmaster left so it's been difficult.

Yes we are rather hoping to have something totally fresh. Whilst I can create a skin for this board it's basically like putting lipstick on a pig at this point. The core software underneath is VERY old and doesn't have a lot of the modern features people like or want. We're hoping management can overcome the current technical roadblock on getting new software but if not, I will start on a theme for this one again. Still plenty of time yet until the album.

The band have a new song about this important subject.

I predict it could be the next single...

because the cover art has been leaked:

I've created a temporary C&G skin which is now the default but I've kept the SH one available if you prefer that, so it probably won't change automatically. Not sure.


Click here to change to the new one
, or use the selector on the bottom left of every page.

It's essentially the same as the SH one but with a different header and background. Still hoping to move to something else so I didn't want to waste much time on it, but should suffice for now.

Maybe if I swap enough times I can confuse my browser and end up with a SH / CAG mash up --- multiple linked roads made of golden concrete with lots of "F"s in all directions... aka "the SHAG"
