Sorry to bother, but I just have a quick question about the change in size of author/series images.
Okay, so you know how, if the image submitted is larger than the allowed dimensions, it is automatically shrunk to the correct dimensions by the site? My question is, for these images, has the increase in the allowed dimensions caused them to automatically become larger (which I think would be the result if the case were that the site "remembers" the image in its original dimensions, but displays it at the allowed dimensions), or will all the images still (unless updated after the change) be shown at the previously allowed dimensions (which I think would happen if the site only "remembers" the image in its shrunken state)? The reason I ask is because I'm wondering if I should go "update" all the series images (well, where possible and appropriate) to their new allowed size, or if it's automatically been done already.

Yep, all images will have to be updated with larger sizes ... Thanks for the question!

I updated the author/series image widths again, so that they can be 400px tall, as well as 300 pix wide.

i actually prefer 300px tall, since 400px looks too big on my monitor (1280x1024). but i guess that just depends on the individuals' resolution. not complaining though, since they don't look tiny anymore. : )

also, i like how you put the mascot back on the left. the right and left columns' height match, and the right side doesn't look as cluttered since it already has a lot of text. things look much cleaner.

p.s. 'Propaganda' section is nicely named.

I like this much better! The placement of the mascot, and the "new" banner bigrazz Although I'm telling you, have some sort of banner/theme color contest!

Also noticed that you added the "propaganda" to the series pages...
Was this to cover the costs for these improvements?

Not costs for these improvements, but server fees in general. "Propaganda" as a title was just my idea of a joke.

cool- was wondering why everything looked different when I went here today ^_^

Do you still plan to have that kind of hairstyle in 5 years' time?

I like the widened layout, it makes it easier to read now since just about everything only takes 1 line instead of a mix of 1 + 2 lines. Thanks for updating it too since I think the search bar fits well in its original/current spot.
