    I think it'd be funny to call us "Luke Skywalker Air Force Base"


    [face_laugh] That's a really cool idea for a name! :)

    LOL!!! [face_laugh] Hmmmmm.... maybe... ;) (D'you think the folks over at Luke would mind?)

    Yeah, I know it kinda looks like chrome. That's because I used a chrome "fill" and just changed the colors to the desert scheme. It can be changed... if it bugs everyone that badly, I'll do it. I also found a better Star Wars font, so I could re-do the "Tatooine" too. For now, I've got a couple of other graphics projects going on (for a few days, anyway), so changes would have to wait.

    First off, heyas, Dan! Thanks for the kind plug about my Imperial Lego stuff!

    Now, if anyone would like some help with the website, feel free to ask, as I did the one for our 501st Garrison, and I'm always happy to help out if I can.

    Just lemme know if you need anything.

    :) No problem! I guess there IS someone else out here who collects SW Lego (I obviously don't do it at the scale YOU do, but still...). Anyway, it should be pretty neat to have some real stormtroopers over here :)

    WOOHOO!!! I like!! I love!! Let's use it!! :) :D YEEAAAAAHHH!!!!

    **regains control of herself**

    Alrighty, let's get started on the website too! Subjugator, you've seen the basic idea I put together, yes? (here)

    Well, we were thinking of putting the links over on the left bar there. The thing is, the layout is a bit boring right now. Feel free to tweak it, play with it, whatever you'd like.

    The page categories that we've had in mind are: Who (we are), Where, Hobbies, Events, Links, Main (back to the intro page), Legal, and Contact Us.

    I believe I linked to the directory that the images are in on the previous page of this thread - go ahead and play to your heart's content.

    That looks wonderful! :)

    Perhaps I could contact Vader2000 and get the Phoenix Fanforce added to MN's link page... if you're interested and all. ;)

    I have a quick suggestion. Can you extend the nav bar on the left side all the way down? If we want to extend the news on the main page beyond a single screen that nav bar/graphic will just end abbruptly when the user starts scrolling. (I'm also on 1280x1024, so it does that all the time).

    Gavin, Thanks.

    Idiots Array, I updated the nav bar. I am on a 1024, so I know what you mean.

    Bria, I suppose any link to us deserves a link back.

    kreleia, glad u "love" it. It can serve as out banner as well. That register.com banner on the bottom is there
    'cause I am pointing to a folder on a server, not a dedicated ipa. Going this route, we dont have to put up with pop-ups or pay any hosting fees. If someone wants to give register.com $50 to get rid of it, they are welcome to. heheh

    Night, the link is pointing to the right place.


    Let the suggestions fly my way...

    Get rid of the sound file. While it's cool the first time, it's annoying every other time. Instead make it a quote right above the news section, ie.

    "You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villany - Ben Kenobi, ANH

    **finally sees it** Yes. Yes, yes, yes. :) This is perfect. Truly.

    I really couldn't access it earlier. Sorry. For some reason, it kept pulling up some ultra-annoying "Coming Soon" page.

    Only one suggestion from lil' me. It might load faster if you break up the banner into pieces (two or three - this coming from the one person on the boards who still uses a 56k modem). And, as much as I like Ben Kenobi's quote, yeah, it probably will get old rather quickly.

    Otherwise, don't change a thing, except to add. :)

    it removes the register.com banner if you are pointing to a subfolder.

    Then I must be missing something...you get a domain name for free, but it comes with banners at the bottom. If you want to make the banners go away, pay $50. Is that correct?
