Sounds fine to me! Sorry about the delay, I thought this thread was officially dead. I'll change the name now.
Are there any more chapters on the horizon? If so, please send them to me!

Yeah, that would be good. I do have a few more fanfics up now though, from a guy called Mitch- they're worth checking out.

I would appreciate a few visitors, as I've just signed up for a .tk address, and I need to meet their minimum-hits criteria. So please, click here!.

Try putting the name of the section under the image links at the top. A. It's quicker to read and B. Some browsers such as FireFox don't like the alt code, i'm trying to get the plugin though!

Do you think writing the name on the actual picture would work? I suppose I'd have to write it in white for ease of reading.

Try it, but i think plain text underneath or something would probably be clearer.

For the fan art, don't put the dimensions and size as the ALT text.  Pretend that the ALT text will be read out in context with your page with a text-to-speech engine.  If you can't think of something good to say, use alt="[image]", and put that other stuff in the title element.  In most browsers that will come up as a tooltip.

Also please don't use target="_blank" (open in new window).  It's really really annoying, and one of the most annoying "features" of HTML.

Your episode guides kinda spoil the episode, they give away the entire plot... and for the seasons that are incomplete you should add a note to that effect.  Otherwise it looks like a bug.

For the starred ratings, make a nice star image with the alt of "*".  It'll look nicer that way  smile

Other than that, it's nice, the simple design seems to work well.  Your site is nice, but I can see that when it gets big, it's static HTML nature will make it hard to maintain (but, you're on a freebie webhost).  But if and when you reach that stage, you probably would have some sort of content management in place.

I admire you for making a site about a dead sci-fi TV series, though.:P  (This applies to all new sites)

Cool site, zoidyzoid!   smile You have my permission to use any of my art you choose. Most of it is here.
These two were in the General Fan Art thread.

Thanks guys   smile

@crazy nibbler: I agree that angelfire is far from perfect, but I haven't been able to find a better free webhost. Suggestions would be appreciated though...
And thanks for the art Kyle, I'll definitely upload some of it next time I update the site!

Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm looking for a host that offers FTP uploads, and as far as I can see, Livegate doesn't.

Thanks though   smile

The Alltoons Cartoon Network provides free hosting for toon-related websites. You get FTP upload and much more space etc. All you need is to have Google Adwords on your site, but they're very un-intrusive.
