Would you guys mind putting the name of the game under the main picture? It was easy to figure out this time but in the past I've been pretty stumped and had to Google for screenshots. I've seen other people ask in the comments what the game pictured was so I don't think I'm the only one.

You're not the only one to ask, but I always reply that I find it amusing to have people guess :) You're more than welcome to ask me in the comments (It's Eight Minute Empire, for anyone else who's wondering) and I'll reply straight away, but I'm not given the answer straight away.

There's no neat way to do it within the copy anyway.

See? Fun!

Also just to clarify - we have caption functionality, but not specifically for header images. We're also not a wordpress site.

I would have to just write something somewhere that says "Header image is X" which I've dabbled with before; it just sits there, out of place, and out of context and it annoys me. The only exceptions is when I need to specifically credit an image in the header.

So yes, it's a rather personally-driven imposition, but I would rather you guys just ask me and start up a dialogue if you want to know what the header image is.

I know, I know - SUCH a tyrant.
