[edit] Colour scheme and links

I think the colour scheme of the Gallery should match the rest of the site: the dark red of the logo and the grey of the background stone wall.

Edit: and there should be a link in the Navigation bar on the left. --Earendilyon 06:04, 23 April 2006 (EDT)

I agree, I hate the present color scheme. I'll put it on my to-do list. As I'm sure you've noticed I've added that ugly white bar to the top of the pages. What I'm planning on doing is moving the A-Z links to the top left. This would leave a lot of space for the left navigation links where we can put main pages like the Gallery. --Hyarion 12:14, 23 April 2006 (EDT)

[edit] Images by Artist

Do we really need that lengthy "Images by Artist" box? It'll only get bigger and bigger, and for some of those that only have one or two it might be a bit overdone. Anyway, I could be wrong, but I don't think that many people would search for images by artist as opposed to by category. I was thinking that space might be better used in breaking down some of the more important categories. We could have a smaller box (just a switch would work) with some of the more prominent artists listed; say, those with 20+ images in the database. It might also be interesting (if we have room) to put in a box with a random image. --Narfil Pal├╣rfalas 17:05, 1 April 2007 (EDT)

[edit] Characters

I am not sure that I like the word "characters" in the topics section. Unsigned comment by Ingwe (talk • contribs).

Maybe "People" is better? -- Ederchil 14:24, 11 June 2008 (EDT)
Unfortunately I chose not to go with "People" for two reasons; people refers specifically to humans and not all characters are human, and it allows us to use the People category for real-life people. If we can think of a better term I'm all for it, but I think "Characters" encompasses everyone sufficiently. --Hyarion 16:05, 11 June 2008 (EDT)
I believe "Beings" would be appropriate.-Ingwe

[edit] Non-Images

What's going on with all those new blank images? Unsigned comment by Ingwe (talk • contribs).

Since the last update, it's what you get when you upload a file. It's also what you get when you insert a thumbnail on a page, or change the size or position of any existing thumbnail. It's a bug that needs to be addressed, but I haven't seen Hyarion in a while. -- Ederchil (Talk/Contribs/Edits) 14:39, 19 October 2009 (UTC)
