WHUT.  I DO THE TESTING I GET TO PICK THE PICS.
This one is 700x210

ETA: ok, so 700 seems the best width for my screen.  Could a few others look at these and let me know which size seems best for your screen?

700 px wide is probably the best for me as well.

I set up the Creative Corner under the Other category if y'all want to take a look. I did that yesterday. Is everyone fine with it as is?

The pictures that were wide just had a slider at the bottom so I could scroll over.  None of them affected the formatting of the forum elements.

Thanks for all your work, Dyany.

Well, no one's said anything, so we're going with it as is for now anyway. :)

Next thing to discuss...

I can move all relevant topics from the General Discussion into the Creative Corner category. The next question is... Does conversation on things such as currently watching TV shows or movies or that sort of thing also get moved? How are we delineating things?

Since I'm now looking at this... I'm going to ask a bunch of questions about other categories and organization.

Do we want to change Home Preparedness and Food Storage to Home Preparedness, Food Storage, Cooking? Because we have food topics, recipe topics in other places, but why not stick it all together?

I think all of us can be a bit loose when we start threads, & may not always put them in the best category. Not only food & recipe topics, but occasional others as well. Some topics unavoidably overlap categories, & we just have to make our best judgment.

But now I see that food & recipes have made inroads into the Creative Corner. Is this what those who looked for a category for artistic topics wanted – since we have an established forum (Home Prep) that can also cover food.

What about a broad category for Home Preparedness, Food/Cooking, Health & Safety, (or any title Laurie/Dyany/Andrew think covers it all, with a short explanation like those for other categories), that would include all areas of temporal well-being? It would be for conversations about emergency storage of all kinds, cooking & recipes for storage or daily use, fitness & exercise, safety, animal health, home & car care, & related subjects. 
 
Sewing, knitting, etc. are among the topics that can overlap categories, since they can be creative but are often just about making clothing, which is an area of temporal well-being. And some food topics could also be creative if we are talking about, say, cake decorating or meal presentation. In those cases, we leave it up to the author to pick the best home for his/her topic. But some are clear-cut: if I am asking how to make decorative tatted table mats, it is not “home preparedness,” & if I am asking how to preserve tomatoes for storage, it is not “creative.” :P
