Some changes  
Hi everybody! :)

I thought it was more than about time for me to take care of this community, considering I haven't done much for it since it's been handed over a few months ago (what can I say, life's a bitch), and soooo... I started to realize some mild changes today.

+ I gave the community a fresh face with a new layout; I used a header nextuesday made and posted here a while ago, because a) I love the look of it, b) it fits the layout's colour scheme and c) it even miraculously exactly met the size-requirements. I hope you like it. :)

+ Since we now have a sidebar, I created some tags, which are supposed to make archive-browsing easier for everyone (for instance if someone is only looking for icons, s/he only has to hit the tag "fanart: icons", instead of wading his/her way through all of the community's posts). Therefore I'd like to ask every posting member to try and tag his/her entries. New tags can only be created by maintainers (which is to prevent having multiple tags meaning the same thing), so if you need a new one, please respond to the tags-request-post I will post later.

+ Which brings me to another point: the community is now "members only" by default. This has several reasons, one of them being trying to make it harder for spammers to spy on the community and its members (and therefore protecting it), and also protecting photo agency-pictures and the members who post them. DO NOT try and change the security setting. This will be the last public entry.

Everyone who is only watching the community, but not a member, should join now if s/he wants to see the entries here in the future!

+ I also changed the user-info to make it match the layout, and update it with these new rules, and so on. It's still missing a nice picture, and I'd like to ask you to suggest pictures for me to use for the user-info in a comment to this post, if you want to. :)

Flames, praises, suggestions go here. ;)

That's a good idea about making this members-only, it's unfortunate that it's necessary to do that here :/

Lovely layout BTW :)

I don't think it's such an unfortunate thing really, a lot of community's are locked without any such reason...it's a pretty common thing to do. As long as it serves us. :)

Thank you. :)

You mean the comm's layout? Thanks. I changed it another time since this entry, so this was a different layout I talked about here.
