    Just went to UO.com for the first time in a while, and what is the first banner ad at the top of the page?

    Thank you for 15 years!

    Yep! The old website is berry pretty, but those fancy image sliders are hard to update without using already-taxed artistic resources. The new one is supposed to integrate MyUO and maybe some other cool features (is it too much to hope for a web-based vendor search?). :)

    Wait... what? Are you talking about making the slider or the images? The slider is pretty straight forward to make in Drupal 7 using content type and views, and then just a bit of CSS for image placement. Creating the images and backgrounds themselves, well yeah that's a little harder for the non-graphics person like me.
