Site and graphics design  
Hey all -

Finally, *finally* this semester is over. I'm really sorry that I haven't been around... it's just been crazy for the past six weeks, really. Anywho, thank you guys for your patience and for all your hard work; my head is spinning after having taken a peak at the fic recs post!

I want to start working in earnest on the site layout throughout the next few days, as well as on a splash page. I'll do a few different layout versions (that's pretty easy with CSS), but with regard to the splash page - I just wanted to ask whether you guys have any particularly *favorite* B/F (or just Buffy and just Faith) pictures. If so, and if you feel like linking or sending (gmail can take it!), that will help me get a sense for what you guys want to *see* on the site.

Also, what should my first priority be for getting into the swing of things? Should I make it a point to go through the one-star recs and second the ones I'm in favor of? Or is there something more useful that I could be doing?

It's awesome that your semester's over. I have only 27 more days of work! Whee! (Well, except for the lack of money part. May have to get temp work in the summer.)

I kind of never thought of *not* including the one-star fics we chose; I was really going more on a pass/fail basis, with just the really truly excellent stories given more stars. I've been busy compiling an address list of all the authors, to send a supplication email to--that should be going out within the next few days, and it includes all the stories/authors on our list so far.

In other news, I've been too busy writing fic to write my essays. *is bad* Maybe I should give it a go, yes?

Congratulations on your semester being over :)

In terms of Buffy/Faith pics-- I don't have any particular favorites. I should mention that thoughtquarter offered to do a Buffy/Faith graphic just for us with our site title/colors/theme once we had it worked out. Anyone else want to take her up on it?

That's awesome, yeah! So she could basically whip up the splash page - that's what you're thinking, right? Totally works for me.

Have we decided on any kind of color scheme or does it matter? Should I tell her dark, light, whatever?

Hey, Katie, do you have something along the lines of a template for the stories we'd be archiving? Because, if you do, I'll start formatting the stories I've gotten authorial permission to use.

Haven't whipped up anything like that, but it won't be hard; I can definitely have one by tomorrow. I'm thinking that each fic will open up in its own window and be pretty bare-bones there... sort of like at ChosenFics. What do you guys think?
Zuluzulu on May 24th, 2005 01:41 am (UTC)
What are the advantages to the fic opening in a new window, as opposed to just being a link to a new page?
Marenmarenfic on May 24th, 2005 09:40 pm (UTC)
I like that format, personally. Great idea.
