LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

Most of the site has been changed over. The galleries are still being worked on at the moment and there will be a major overhaul of the forums coming as well

Actually, the Gallery is going to wait as well, since it will be directly tied into the Forums as far as membership goes, like the current one.

Great new front page, I like it very much Many thanks to Tracy and her team! It's nice to hear that you're working on the gallery too, maybe it will work for me afterwards. (I can only see the pics from the specific file via the front page picture, but could never see any pics when using the gallery button Oh well.)

Anyway, thanks for the good work, DBC is definitely a wonderful site and I love it!

re: the picture - um, not one of my favorites (possibly from its association :wink: ) But that's the *onliest* part I have any qualms about - really! :lol:

I love the new style. I find it bolder and makes you take more note against the dark background. Love it!

I gotta agree with Ostrella on not much liking the new photo due to association . . . and well I don't know, he looks smarmy to me in that one. He looked so much more warm and friendly and genuine in the other :?

But the new color scheme nice, though surprising if one is expecting soft blue tones *L*

Tell you what. If anyone can come up with a nice collage or avatarish picture for the homepage, something creative, then we'll put the selections up for public vote and that will be the new homepage pic.

I just wanted an updated photo and that one from BB was basically the only one I had :-/

A hint, as it will be kinda similar (the new vBulletin for DBCentral will be a newer version that what I am showing you here) www.colonialfleets.com/forums/

Ahh too bad, I think most of my stuff is either too young. I agree with trying to find as recent photo as possible. It seems to set the tone of the site better, I dont' know how else to put it, but it seperates it from an A-Team or a BSG site . . if that makes any sense

*bah* and what wasn't too young, I jsut managed to accidently erase from my hardrive (I had to reformat it due to a virus, and the ONE FOLDER I somehow forgot to back up had *all* my images in for photo references and such, which included all the Dirk images *sigh*)

Yeah. The problem is finding a recent photo that's not him at a convention or stills from people's BB tapes.
He sent me some really nice 8x10's for scanning for publicity but even those are now 10 years old ( and older ). They're nice, but Dirk's not timless if you know what I mean

:shock: :shock:

Then you'd better stick with the one you have used :wink: Honestly, who can provide recent photos if not Dirk himself? Maybe he should ask his sons to take one. Even if it wouldn't be a professional shot, it would be more recent than anything anyone of us could provide :roll: Maybe someone will get a chance for a nice shot on the Galactica cruise :?:
