My new site is finally up- click here to have a look! Unfortunatley angelfire has banner ads, but at least it works, and the ad setup is much better than some free hosts.

Oh well, please give it a look, I hope you like it   smile

PS- I'm not sure how it looks at different resolutions, it might be a bit weird at 800x600 and below...

A good start. Enjoyed your fish fetish quip. I wonder though whether you should be typing out entire synopsis for eps, though, as plot is one of the more important aspects of some eps... it's people like YOU who ruined "The Sting" for me! (Alright, 10% people like you, 90% people like myself...) A little messy, but it just opened, so I'm sure it will me cleaned up and groaning with content in no time  wink.

Thanks for the feedback  smile

About the episode thing, I probably will start doing less spoilerising reviews, for your sake and mine- if I write as much as I did for SP3K every time it'll take me too long to do all 72 episodes.

When you say 'a little messy', do you mean the content layout, or the actual look of the site? And do the picture-links at the top of each page take up more than one line for you? As I said, I'm not too sure about how it looks at different resolutions.

Thanks again for taking the time to look & comment!

Yeah, they take up two lines... but I thought they were supposed to!  confused Ah well. And when I say 'a little messy,' I meant the content layout... I'm lazy, and I don't like scrolling down half a page to get to the menu bit. Good work, though!

Thanks   smile
Yeah, I see what you mean about the menu thing, but don't forget the pictures at the top are links too. Strange that they take up two lines, I hope it doesn't look too weird. For me there's just a single line of them, and that's what I wanted.
Thanks again for your comments!

Nice looking site, with some nice content.

All my scan art is over at Scan Art Central, but you have my permission to use it if you want.

Anyway, keep it up.

[edit] My link has disappeared from the side bar of FSAC. Wierd.  hmpf Seems I got shafted. But my page still exists here.

Thanks alex!
I went with 'bender_messed' and 'zoid_intou'.

I'm thinking of making a second art page, for the sake of dial up users like myself (less thumbnails to download per page), but I think I'll wait until there's a few more pictures.

If by staffing you mean someone to write episode guides/ reviews, then yes! Please email me with any content for the site  big grin

Sure, I'll submit.  Although I already got hired for another site, it doesn't mean I can't submit stuff!  big grin   Post what you want.  Like, specifically.

It's a good site, however, you should center the pictures at the top. Also, I would put the menu at the top or at the left side. Other than that, it's looking good. (However, I disagree with your reviews of the comics, out of the first four, I think #4 was the best. But that's just me  smile )

Well, the obvious things like fan art & fan fiction, but I'd also like to include 'guest' episode guides/ reviews and the like, preferably in a similar format to my one on SP3K (the plot synopsis doesn't need to be that long).
Only if you want to though  smile

For me they do appear centered, so it's probably something that looks different at lower resolutions maybe? I'm viewing it at 1024x768, and it looks like this (half-size screenshot):



Anyhow, I'll see what I can do to fix that.

You're probably right. I keep hoping that having the picture-links at the top and the text menu at the bottom is enough, but there probably should be a text menu in view as soon as the page loads.

Each to his own  smile
But actually, I initially thought that #4 was close to, if not the best comic when I first read it, but re-reading them for the reviews I decided I liked issue #1 better. I'd be more than happy to include comments or 'second opinions', so if you'd like to write either your own review or just a comment on my review(s), that'd be great  big grin

You could just put text under the pictures.

Also, it looks like this on 800x600:

Thanks Birdbot, now I know what people mean when they talk about the 'messiness' of the site. I'll have a go at fixing that. Also, the text under pictures idea is a good one.

Thanks for your help  big grin

Sorry for the double post, but I think I may have fixed the picture problem, and I'd appreciate it if someone with their screen resolution set to 800x600 could check it out for me  smile

This message comes up when I open the site:

You can use my Fan-Art if you want Zoid.

It's on this thread I don't know if you can right click though.

Birdbot: Thanks for the framegrab. It's annoying that the pictures still take up two lines, but they should at least be centered for all resolutions now. I've changed that for all the pages now, and also changed the main page sub-heading ('A Futurama Fansite') so it's now on a seperate line from the main heading, and in a smaller font. I've got no idea about that second thing, and it doesn't happen for me, but thanks for pointing it out. Does anybody know what that means/ why it comes up?

Coilette: Great art, but it makes me angry that I don't have your talent  big grin
I'd love to upload it to the site- any specific pics you'd like to submit, or can I choose? <edit>Unless you tell me otherwise, I'll pick.</edit>

Leandro: Thanks for that     smile

Birdbot: That's weird, but the fact that the angelfire ad code isn't working for you either suggests that maybe my HTML is okay, and there's some other problem (I don't know what though). What OS and browser are you using? Thanks for letting me know, if anyone else gets the same problems I'd like to know.

I named my fanfic, so you can change the name on your site. I call it "Virtually Trapped". I know it's not a great name, but I'm horrible at making names.

The rest of the site looks good. Now if you could just get more people to contribute!
