I was so worried something had happened to this place, like, "This is the second time it's been down lately? There were no announcements?" and now we have a whole website revamp!!

The little zoom thing with the front page thumbnails is nice, and I guess the expanding/contracting subcategory listings could be useful. I was a little bit "wot?" that the Eldest subcategory is STILL under CS Lewis for reasons unknown, but ya know, that's small stuff. We've got an aesthetic overhaul to enjoy and the site is still alive yay it's still alive. Smile

(Also, if the Powers that Be gave us a new site format, does that mean they intend to take more of a hand in website affairs again?)

I guess the downtime was to update the server scripting, etc?

I had no involvement in this, it was all the webmaster's doing and he did not post any announcements anywhere to inform anyone this was happening soon.

Apparently this new update is supposed to make FAC more user-friendly towards mobile devices users, since the amount of displayed pictures is limited to eight in each row (24 pictures on display total).


The same layout must have become online standard, since it had been applied to Wikis and dA.

Man, I was never expecting an update to this site to happen seeing as its been somewhat unchanged for a long time. But I'm digging it. It's refreshing to see some aesthetic changes. Hopefully we'll get some kind of notice on everything that has been changed. I'm curious to know if there is anything more then the obvious and whats mentioned here.

It makes sense to me that the update might have been intended as mobile-friendly, TeeJay, since my profile and galleries look better if I shift my browser window to a smaller size.
