Random would also eliminate any preferential issues in "choosing" what photo gets displayed.
Something we may want to consider is a copyright disclosure / usage agreement for submitting a photo. The forum may not be a for profit business, but that doesn't mean we couldn't still run into usage and copyright issues. Although I'm not sure of Canadian laws regarding privacy and copyright, but in the US it's always a good idea to get a declaration of ownership, and specific permission before using second party intellectual property for public use. This goes double for portraits. In fact I would strongly recommend not accepting picture with people in it, because of all the privacy issues involved.
This process could a be as easy as a usage agreement stating that "By submitting a digital image file here, you are declaring full copyright ownership of the photograph being represented, and you assume full responsibility for the privacy rights of the people and or property represented in it. In addition, by submitting this image file here you are granting the administrators of http://www.the510realm.com
full permission to us this photograph as they see fit within the specific context a banner image format representing this site. The administrators of http://www.the510realm.com
and their associates are not responsible for, nor do they offer copyright protection for images submitted and or displayed here."
This may seem kind of paranoid, but working as a commercial photographer in the past I've seen some prey F'ed up stuff happen when not using this protection.
OK I've thrown the pitch for a great STD joke. Batter Up!
My swap will be made of solid gold and it will run on puppy farts.

If shardik hooked that little guy up to his throttle body he'd make it up Pikes Peak in record time.
