Anyone any suggestions to liven up the Main Page? I was thinking about a slider which first shows the image currently in place and after that some images that are linked to either the 3 seasons or some of the main characters.

That's a fantastic idea :)

Sure. I would like that, too. :)Supercollaborator (talk) 00:00, April 19, 2017 (UTC)Supercollaborator 

We could use a custom background as well. I have the whole series so I can take decent quality screenshots. Any ideas? :)

I guess maybe the one in Ginger's Solo when Ginger imagines herself, Dodie and Macie in a band called "The Ponies". I've always liked that one. Any other screenshot would be fine, too. :) Supercollaborator (talk) 00:40, April 19, 2017 (UTC)Supercollaborator 

I like the new cover. Great job, RuneType. :) This show and these characters will always be apart me. I love them so much.Supercollaborator (talk) 20:36, April 19, 2017 (UTC)Supercollaborator 

Thanks. ^.^ It's still a work in progress though and the coding is trickier than I thought, but it will get there eventually. ;) RuneType (talk) 21:50, April 19, 2017 (UTC)

I hear you on that. The old saying is "Rome wasn't built in one day". Like you said we'll get it eventually. :) Supercollaborator (talk) 23:36, April 19, 2017 (UTC)

New Background

Idk how familiar ya'll are with Wikia and its coding, so i'll just explain it in simple terms :D
There are two main ways we can handle the background:

  • As one solid image that does or does not show a little in the main content space. Here is an example. The main content space is transparent enough to see the forest a bit, but not so much that it makes the content unreadable.
  • We use the sides only. This is what most Wikis do. And most TV Wikis utilize the space to show off the characters. Examples here and here.

I'm going to browse through the show and see if there are any good shots that would make a good solid image, or moments I can pull from that would be good for a collage.

Awesome. Best of luck with the collage. :) Supercollaborator (talk) 23:36, April 19, 2017 (UTC)
There's a whole ton of theming and customization we can do, that I've never gotten around to (being the only person on a wiki is lonely lol)
I'm going to try and make up some backgrounds and experiment with the theming too. I'll take some screenshots and we'll see what we like best. :)

Sounds great! There are some official artworks out there of ATBG that are of good quality that could be used. RuneType (talk) 12:15, April 20, 2017 (UTC)
I'm sure there has to be some good quality artwork of this show that's available. :) Sounds great to me, too. Supercollaborator (talk) 14:05, April 21, 2017 (UTC)
