Colour scheme and links[edit]

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)

Images by Artist[edit]

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)

Characters[edit]

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

Non-Images[edit]

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)
