It is like a huge sign telling people who see my screen that I'm not doing real work.

I always scroll down as fast as I can when the page loads so that no one will see it.

I can't agree more. I started scrolling before the page begins to load. Big avatars don't help either.

I have the same problem here (and sorry my avatar couldn't be bigger :) , I will change that in a few minutes).

To be honest first I was worried with that, but since now everybody knows that I am going to apply next season, I just do not care anymore, when somebody stops at my workplace and sees the forum I just give that "yellow smile".

Anyway for those who do not have that "freedom" I think it is a good idea to make a little bit smaller the logo since changing the browser is not always an option.

Have I not been around lately? :oops:

Unfortunately, no new entrepreneurial stuff to talk about. We keep pursuing ideas to improve GMAT Club.

We could always what google does to its logo on some occasions. You guys can come up with your own images for your favorite days. We could just upload your favorite images on relevant days..

Just a thought.. Remind me if this idea blows.. :oops:

The most sensible logo would be if someone with more time than I do does my idea!

I was thinking that you want to rip off the actual test-display colour scheme, set up and framing and all that.
