Default Logos

How about inserting the correct logos for each BSD, instead of every forum having the the freebsd logo?

I vaguely recall looking into this back when I set this place up. It's not something I could easily figure out how to do (IIRC I just replaced the default vBulletin images with these modified ones).

That being said, it's not a "FreeBSD logo", it's the generic BSD logo which dates back to the '70s, long before FreeBSD came into existence.

The "FreeBSD logo" is the stylized daemon, which was chosen back in ~2005 exactly because the daemon represents an entire family of systems, rather than just FreeBSD.

The configuration of Vbulletin is not one of my favourite past times. Only when I happen to run into the section where I can replace the forum logo's I will do it.

EDIT: Second condition: Manipulation of graphic images is also not my favourite. So someone has to supply the NetBSD and OpenBSD logo's in the correct format

This is not a configuration option AFAIK. I just overwrote the default images with my own:

You'd have to add some logic in the skin (or somewhere) which says "if forum is netbsd then use this image" etc.
