Hi David, all

Hi, :-)

The text on the banner should actually read:

The challenge: 50 thousand euros needed!

As stated in Wikipedia (there is a linked official document, but I didn't have the time to read it):

"For European Union legislation, the spelling of the words for the currency is prescribed for each language; in the English-language version of European Union legislation the forms "euro" and "cent" are used invariantly in the singular and plural, even though this departs from usual English practice for currencies."

So I stayed with "euro".

I'm not quite sure if the text is meant as slogan (and thus "Needed" had to be capitalized), but I changed the capitalization to normal text.

For "50 Thousand" -> "50 thousand": This reduces the visual impact to just an information, so I changed it to "50 000".

Do you think this is ok?

Best regards


PS: I'll come back later to the discussion about which banner to use
(Christoph's, my new one, any other). For the meantime we should link what we have. The present banner is not worse than no banner at all...
(just my personal opinion)
