LOTS of new Fanart

I’ve been a bit lazy lately and haven’t written an update for all of the uploads I’ve been doing.
There is new fanart in the following sections:
Avatars & Icons
Signatures and

I also re-updated the credits on each of the fanart sections as many people who’ve sent in fanart have not been credited since we redid the index. You’re all credited now, as you deserve to be!

Sorry that this update has been delayed. Enjoy the new fanart.

and additionally Sarfania added some Christmas eCards!! – Martina.

Oh yes, we’re just changing the look of the wallpapers site, sorting them into categories, so….just don’t wonder there aren’t any at the moment!!

Survey results

Thanks a lot to all the visitors taking part in our survey,
it was really very helpful.
43 visitors did take part.

I will go through some of the answers and telling you what we’re planning to do.

The survey told me, that all layouts are loved in an equal way. Some where more disliked than others, but there were always some of whom it was the favourite layout. So they will all stay.

I also got told, that some of them are not viewable in the Mac IE. That’s true, since I have it myself. The Mac IE does not understand valid xhtml, it is old and does make mistakes. I will see, if I can find a valid hack to make some extra code for it.

I got some ideas for future skins: lighter blue, one where you really see his eyes, award ceremonies and galleries/appearances, more skins with his characters, red, brighter and newer pics, Jake Chessum, Jack Sparrow, red and black, together with Vanessa, pink, no pink (<–haha, right after each other…).
So, yes, some character skins will come within the time, it was most wished, and brighter colors, yes, I’ll try my best. It looks always so much brighter on my very new Mac than on some PCs I used.

Only one did not like the long navigation, everybody else liked it, and the gallery navigation, too.

Favourite sections were most part the Johnny section,
