Yes it's here. http://www.apositive.org/images/banner380x76.png I got to that by right clicking on the banner and choosing copy image url. So that means the banner image is hosted locally.

Re: Whoa quiet here....

This isn't math or computer science. :p Unfortunately. If it were, I might know how to help... I just mean how do you even access the page header? Or the front page? There must be some framework that allows you to make changes. With AVEN that would be drupal. It could in theory just be plain html fo...

Re: Meet our Apositive mascot, tentatively named Abby

Great work CatBunny!

And oh gosh, mascots... that brings back memories. Shortly after I joined the PT, back in the mists of time, someone wanted to make an AVEN mascot and ew took a lot of flack for even taking that idea seriously. Right here on apos in fact. :p We gave up in the end...

Re: Disability and asexual ?

I think asexuality is a sexual orientation, but sexual orientations don't have to be life long. They can be caused by external events in some circumstances. Maybe sexual orientations are *usually* life long, but in the end things can change. If you don't experiene sexual attraction, you are asexual ...

Hey Allie, welcome to apos! Gosh I sympathise with your situation; I'm lucky I've never had to go through anything like that, being from a very secular background.

So it was very very early stages and they're confident it isn't anywhere else, that I don't need further treatment because it was all removed and they're going to keep an eye on me. Yay!!! Gre...

It might be dull but there has definitely been activity in the last 7 days. For example here! And several other threads. So I think this page

One thing that's either missing from the new software or I can't for the life of me find it for whatever reason is a page that will give the posts of the last day or week (or whatever). It was pretty useful to be able to see new activity without looking through the entire board for something new. Di...

Re: A challenge to young Brits

In theory the vote could be ignored. In practice that won't happen - it would not be politically viable, and would lead to extreme social unrest. Yes it will take time - at least two years - but barring something very unexpected, the UK will now be leaving the EU. And yes, Scotland is actually my ma...

Tan, if they were going to stop you running they would already have done so by now. Also they let you run for declass not too long ago, which has the same criteria as running for mod. So unless something has happened since then, they won't stop you running for this one. It's down to the voters. Your...

Re: Am I Asexual ? The easy guide

Sexual attraction is a happy compromise. It's neither meaningless nor so precise that anyone can precisely define it or measure it (despite what piffy thinks). It relates asexuality to something people are already familiar with, but allows enough nuance to allow people to interpret it somewhat flexi...
