Hey Folks,

If you're reading this, that means you're looking at the 2012 website design!  It was built by the multi-talented Cuprohastes

While implmenting the design, I took the time to add a few more features to the site:

- Support for the Open Graph Protocol.  Now when you click the Facebook "Like" button on any page, that like will automagically go up on your Facebook wall.  This will help spread the word about us!

Google Plus One support.  Located next to the "Like" button, you can now +1 any page on the site.

Enjoy the 2012 look and feel!

-- Giza (Webmaster Leopard)

I'm enjoying the new web design already.  I really like the sunset and twilight skies at the top of the page.  Cuprohastes did a fantastic job.

To be honest, not a big fan of it.  The colours are too bright / saturated on the screen, and even at an easy-reading setting are a bit jarring to the viewer.  The banner? Yes, wonderful, beautiful piece of art.  From a graphical design standpoint, it just doesn't work

I don't think the colors can be called too bright.  IMO, it's "just right", in the Goldilocks zone between too bright and too dark.  It's not jarring to me at all.

To be honest, Giza did the actual hard work of implementing it all, I just supplied the graphics and suggested the colours!

Well it looks great! And similar to the 2011 design, which makes navigation a breeze! Good work! *pats you on the back*

Ok weird thing that happened. I opened up anthrocon web-page. It was 2011 i was like "ok so there not changing anything to-day, can't wait till they do." 5 minutes later start up my old computer so i can move some information to my new computer. I open internet to see what was the last tabs i had up, what would you know i had anthrocon web-page up, BUT it was of the new design. I thought it was of last years design. Then i look at the year on top and it says 2012. What are the chances for the 20 minutes that i was on my old computer that the site would up-date then?

You probably needed to clear the cache in your browser on the new computer.

Maybe on the sides, but be careful that any pattern for the posts makes them hard to read,
like either last year's or the one before that did Annoyed

Agreed. I like the blues and greens better than the browns and blacks...

The soggy old greymuzzled otter wakes up from his post-FurFright slumber and checks for new developments on AC's site.

YIKES!  Too wide!  Too wide!

These old eyes have been behind progressive-focus (also known as bifocal) lenses for well over half a decade.  And they don't like settings over 1024x768 on the 19" CRT.*

But until the old monitor and/or the old Dell Dimension 8100 (Pentium 4  1.4 GHz, less than a gig of ram, running windows XP, but with a very nice ATI All-In-Wonder card) fail,  I'll take one for the team!

Soggy

*CRT:  Cathode Ray Tube.  An ancient video display device consisting of a vacuum-filled glass tube with colored phosphors on the front and an electron-beam emitter at the back.

P.S.  Love the picture of KwiK too!  I bought one of his drawings at the art-show this year!

Will we do it yet again, next year?
