Our Link Buttons page was made so you could all link to this site from your blogs and other pages. But since it was done amidst all the other things required to make a forum, the results were somewhat...sub-par.

So they've been completely redone. The tiny buttons have been made brighter and less grainy. Here are some of the other new ones:











If you were using one of the images that we've discontinued, you'll find it will still work and display that image, although you're more than welcome to switch to one of these newer ones.

In other news, Shaun is working on a new big feature that will make the future of real (tangible) contest prizes a possibility. Hopefully we'll have that up and working very soon!

The goal is to have it fully running this weekend. It's a bit of an annoying process to get approved, etc. We're approved for 2, waiting on the 3rd, and then we need to do a little work on the coloring and some little tidbits and it will be ready to go

Awesome! That last one does look a bit--happy--but I guess other people can use it.

Actually, I started using the boring ones so it wouldn't look like I was favoring one website over another, but now my blog looks ugly and bland. -sigh- And these new ones are pretty too. Good job!

Since 80 x 15 seems to be a common button size, I've added three more buttons. These are slightly smaller than the 88 x 15. Both are common on the internet.



So Carraka, those ^ images will match up with the other ones on your blog. No more awkward button-sticking-out-ness.

Yay! Now all the buttons look different! I feel much better about myself now.
