SixByNine sent me the icons, I suggest the first one because it fits the theme, but either are fine.





Enjoy, we'll get your icon and put it up.

EDIT: So THAT was the catch with Freewebs. I knew there had to be one.

Okay, fixed. You should be able to see them now, I hosted them on my Angelfire account.

Now, to put Luis's fanfic up on the site.

That's cos all the other PEELers are too lazy to send them to me. I don't want to use any pic that the artist may not want shown on the site... gotta respect their right to privacy and all.

Thanks for doing a pic, leelaholic!

The Fry-Borg by Luis Gonzales is now on the site. Congratulations on being the first author on Futurama Fandom, Luis!

I hope more people send their art and fanfics in this weekend, that's going to be the best time for me to upload stuff.

A word of warning. This is the message I just got from freewebs when I was uploading a file.

Non-Premium FreeWebs Users can only have up to 50 files. To upload an unlimited number of files, please upgrade your account to Premium User status by signing up for any service from your Premium Services area.

You want to find another host...

Aw crap.

I'll just make extra accounts to hold all the stuff.

EDIT: Or I can save up some money and just buy the freaking premium service. Is it that expensive for one year?

I'm sure you could find a better host if you were going to pay.

Well, I only have about 28 files, and if worst comes to worse I can move the site elsewhere.

Anyone know any inexpensive hosts, preferrably with your own domain name (ie www.futuramafandom.net)?  I want as much MB of storage as possible...

I offer hosting, of a kind.  Quite cheap too.  smile  However there might be a conflict of interests because I also own a fanfiction site...

But if you're interested, e-mail me.  I'll see what kind of deal I can do you.

If you're willing to pay, SmooveNet offer some fairly cheap (ofcourse "cheap" is a relative term) hosting for fansites (used by TLZ and FSAC among others).

What exactly do you need hosted? If they're just pics and other < 5mb files i'll host them, i'll never use 50mb, and I have u/l bandwidth, you can have 40mb of my space if you want, If i ever go over 10mb i'll be surprised...
If you need the whole site hosted, you can still link to mine for pics etc. I really couldn't care less.

And despite what i have seen people say, you can hotlink Tripod stuff, you just have to know how  smile

As I said before, I am pretty new to website making, so I have no idea how long certain amounts of MB last... blame my naivety.

Thank you, Rage Dump and Archonix, for your offers, and thank you Teral for the hosting suggestion.

Latest on the site is that I've recieved some fan art and a fan fiction to put up... I am working the fan fiction through a simple process called "spelling and grammar check". It should be up as soon as I've filled in all the missing commas and periods. Fan art will be up somewhat sooner.

For those who are considering sending their work(s) in, remember to try and get all the punctuation in before you send it... I am a bit of an English freak and correct it upon sight.

If/When you want something hosted, mail it to sleek85@iprimus.com.au i don't check that address really often. (about once a week) So if you need it uploaded quickly, tell me.

And 40mb should last you as linog as you need unless you resort to video. Here are some filesize examples

An Average sized Mp3 - 3-4mb
A wallpaper in .jpg - 150kb-200kb
A 3-second uncompressed 640x480 video - 67.5mb
I just made one of them  smile
A twenty minute video, well compressed - 40mb-200mb

So i don't think Mp3s, fanart, fiction etc. will cause you any problems anytime soon. If you do want to use video, make sure it's compressed, and compressed well.

Is this page dead or are you going to update it ever again?

If you adertised it better in your sigs and trade buddy buttons with other sites you would get more traffic and thus more submissions.

yeah, looks a bit dead doesn't it. The problem is that I don't have time to do anything on it right now (though I have a plan to revamp and advertise the crap out of it over christmas)

It's not really my site and Asy seems to have given up on it.

Seriously, check it out in the new year and there is a good chance it will be up and running again. I don't want to advertise too much, cos it's a bit bad to use someone elses site to advertise a 'rival' one.

here I've put it in my sig... enyoy.

I'm sorry!!!!!

I feel really stupid now, I forgot all about it. I promise I'll do more work on it, but I have 3 projects this weekend from school, but I'll see if I can start working on it tomorrow... otherwise, next weekend. But I will work on it.

Thank you so much for not forgetting about it, 6x9.

I've added in a Futurama Firsts section, which outlines first apearances in futurama. I thought it would be good add some content to the site that I hadn't seen elsewhere. I would apreciate any feedback on the pointlessness of this task  wink (and let me know if anyone has done it before)

Looks like a great site...if only you had more fanfics and fanart.
I'm working on a fanfic of my own and I'll submit it as soon as I'm happy with it.

@1 of the gang: Thanks, your support is very much appreciated.  big grin

I corrected the spelling mistake. I immediately apologise to all Leela fanatics  wink

Asylum, maybe you should put some of your fanart/fiction up there. It would at least give some backbone to it.

I will move the Futurama Firsts secton to another freewebs account if we need to save space on the first

ok, so I wasn't expecting linux to take 3 days to install...

Asylumn, do you still want to do the site? I could take over and try and find someone else to do content.

Xmple: since you are so 'vocal' is there anything you would like to see on the site. I don't really want to do general futurama stuff because all that is pretty much covered by CGEF and TFP. Origanly it was designed for fanfics, but none have turned up. If you have any ideas, they would be welcomed  smile

Also, if you are a fanfic writer (or a fanartist) we would love to display your work. please email it to me, you can use the email link on my profile or go to the site and submit it.

If Scans are accepted then you should have no trouble getting art. Just advertise a little in General Fan art.

As for fics you just in the "FanFic release date" or "FanFic rewievs" threads.

All play and no work makes Xmpel start bitching !
