___Dan, the level of your evilness has never been greater.
___You have put the ugly Monkey that USATF uses as their mascot as the mascot of these very fora.
___Are you trying to scare all the youngsters with this hideous thing from visiting the fora? Or like Mr. O'Reily with his picture on his book, with the Spike monster, you are trying to scare the youth athletes from becomming drug cheats?

Yes, the Fuzzy Fopaw has been hanging in these comfy confines for a couple weeks now. There hasn't been any outcry this time around, but I suspect he's just about outstayed his welcome.

I might have to work on some seasonal logos...

A thought might be to go back and taek a look at the different Games macots and perhaps start a rotation leading up to the announcement of the Beijing macot ... Wink

And on a related side note did you ever look at the different forum "looks" I mentioned before ??

Ooh, me likes. Very Happy Do you think the main Olympic site would have those somewhere? Never easy to find specific info on any of the Olympics sites...

Er, um, I don't think I ever did go back... Embarassed

I was waiting for someone else to say something ... But I'm not sure they even noticed ... I think its cool ... You have it set up so that they rotate at random each time a page is accessed ... And you were able to keep the names and the year's that they represented ... Very very cool ...

Glad you likes. Smile

Randomizing them seemed like the way to go, otherwise I'd have to be manually changing things over all the time.

They came out pretty legible for the size, but I figured adding the name and year would help keep things identifiable.

Is it any contest? I think even the doormat beaver (Amik) puts Spike to shame.

Izzy from Atlanta was pretty horrible too. The only people who liked it were the little kids. And BTW I think the rotating mascots do add a nice touch.

Izzy was someone's idea of trying to be too cute ... The eagle in 1984 was cool ... But Izzy was just dumb ... It represented absolutely nothing and was the silliest thing I've ever seen ...
