Written by steet :
It's been some time since I thought about doing this, but the answer to the petition decided me :
Balto Source has registered the Amazon partnership service, which means that you will be able to buy the Balto films (and more) directly on this site!
This way, I hope to get more people to decide to buy the Balto films, especially the new fans visitors. Amazon may not have the cheapest prices, but they are very reliable, and ordering from the web has a big advantage : it's possible to find the films when they are difficult to find in stores.
There have been a few other changes on the site :
I've changed the content of the window below each page on the site. Before, it was used only to display the latest articles sent on the site. Now, there can be displayed : the most popular fanfics, the latest fan arts, and Amazon partnerships links.
Now that there are a lot of galleries on the fan arts, I've added a search box to access them more easily. I've also made a few design changes in this fan art page, and the 'mouseover' option to display the fan arts is now activated by default for everyone (but you can still deactivate it if you don't like it).
I've named two new mods on the shout boxes : Rickwolf & Kodifan. Talking about moderation, I've done a few tweaks to stop the spread of a spamming robot on both the site and the forums, which was beginning to be very annoying these last weeks...
Also, it is now forbidden to post messages without writing your pseudo first. (so no more 'A visitor' messages)
A big addition on the fanarts, is the possibility of sending GIFs animations in your gallery, among the usual pictures. Just send GIFs animation files just like you do with JPG, and it will work. (although the files musn't be too big). The rules for the animations are the same as for the pictures, which means : they must have been drawn by yourself only! (no animation made with pictures from the films will be accepted) After all, it's a site based on an animated film, isn't it?
One last thing : As fans, we all know that Balto deserve to be more popular. In order to get more people to know about it, I've organized a 'project', which is : everyone is allowed to talk about Balto Source, and add links wherever you want on the web. The more links, the more people will know (or will remember) about Balto!
More things :
- New poll.
- New music videos.
- Fan arts and fanfics regularly updated.
- Added a 'Fanfic of the week' link in the left menu.
