    It's a photo shot by one CSer from long long time ago. No special meaning.

    It's a symbolism.

    If you read the archive in the National Library, Stamford Raffles always hunt foxes in the snowland of Singapore.

    I didn't realise a simple question would receive such snide remarks. Oh and as for the toy guns, they have all been cleared with customs so thanks for the concern. I think Sion has given me the best explanation.

    Plus i wasn't challenging the reason why that particular pic was chosen i was just wondering whether it meant anything or was a symbol or wat. If u guys wanna start getting all personal then be my guest man.

    No lah...sometimes members here do express themselves passionately. Haha
    As long as they know how to "automatic" and not generate too much friendly fire.

    Really there's no meaning behind the image of the fox, was one of the first few members when the forum started. In the past, good photos were hard to come by, now digital... overload!

    So no worries, no hidden agenda, motives in the layout!

    Guess the owners didn't really change much of the main page appearance. Who knows, maybe next week or soon, the photos will be changed?
