Now we can only use a 125 by 125 max for our ani's, does anyone have any idea how hard it is to find a pic that small? My original one was 125 by 150. *upset*

You know I do love how clean and organized the new layouts looking, even though I agree that I miss the Illharesses in the back ground. Though are we going to get a remake of Kiel's intro page as the current one is for the old layout.

What interest me most though is the changes it says will be coming to the subscription parts. Path to Power sounds like it'll be fun, and Relic Hunters sounds like it's going to be real fun. *wee* I mean I love drowtales and would love to support it more but I'm a bit on the poor side and could only see myself getting a subscription for other stories. But making an actual game that will be fun while supporting my favorite comic seems like something I'd save my money for every month. Or try to anyway. *hmmm*

I can't remember what my avatar size is, but I think I will find out if it's too big in a moment *oops*

edit, wow, I was literally half a kilobyte over the filesize limit, well I managed to get it to half the size without changing image quality, apparently I forgot to use "save for web" in photoshop last time :V

Everyone else hurry and fix your avatars, I have no idea what any of you are actually named, I associate internet identities with their silly faces ^^;

I fixed (and by fixed I mean I went back to my old one) my avatar shortly after the site switched over (forums went first), but I'm looking for a new one.

Also, is it Nuqrah'shadeh or Nuqrah'shareh? I've seen it spelled both ways in the comic...

"Spelling" is a very flexible concept in Drow culture; they do not use a fixed orthography, but each individual writer develops her own flavor, much like some of the posters here :V

The new Kiel+Naal wallpaper is so good, if only I knew how to make it into my new avi. :(

If you don't have an image editor you can use http://pixlr.com/ without downloading anything.

Upload the picture, use the marquee tool to drag a square around the part you want, select "copy." Open a new blank image and paste, if necessary resize the edges so there's no empty space. Go to Image -> Image Size and change the larger side of the image (if it's not a perfect square) to 125px. Save as PNG or JPG, double-check that the image size is less than 48KB.

Wow. Now there are appearance options. *eek* Overwhelmed at first, I'm still deciding which I like best....

My favorite part so far is the little "online" banners. XD

*boogie*

Awesome Wallpaper is awesome? Awesome? It. Is. Pure Awesomeness!

Thanks - I got it back *wee* but smaller :(
Now every avatar is stored on the site. Earlier it was linked - should this not make it easier (it should not take any space on the site) to have larger avatars?

Othewise - Yes SHINY oh so SHINY - putting on sungrasses :B

Maybe the forum is to shiny o_O

The new design looks very good! Front page is easy to oversee and find what you want.
I do miss the Ill'haress backgrounds a bit, but I have them downloaded as wallpapers so it's a bearable loss. ;)

Forum looks good too. I really like the colour-scheme and I haven't found any bugs yet.

Only thing I would remark on is the navigation buttons for the comic. Might benefit from being a little larger. :)
Otherwise, the new design looks very good, both in design and function.
Kudos to the designers and programmer. ^_^


@Kalegion
Nuqrah'shareh is the correct one.
Nuqrah'shadeh is a typo that that sneaked past the editors. *clears throat embarrassedly*

Currently there's just one background for the front page, but that's just because there wasn't any time to make more. :P Kern will make more later, and perhaps he can even be persuaded to put the old ones back online. :)

I'm surprised to see Kiel still cares for cake.
