Happy new year 2006!

 

This is it, in a few hours everyone in the world will be in the year 2006!
As I don't like empty news, I've got a little update for you :

The Balto Source english forums are one year old now! For the occasion, I thought of making changes. You probably already noticed them. This is my gift for the new year!

Here's the list :

- Moved the 'Introduction', 'Help/suggestions' sections into a Site category, and placed them at the top. (after all, introduction should be the first section people should visit)

- Added a Lion king section. (finally!) This is only one section for the moment. I had [...]

Merry Christmas 2005!

 

I added :

- 2 new awards
- New poll
- 3 new articles

- New Fanfics
- New wallpapers
- New music videos
- New links


- Changed the smileys for 'christmas suited' ones

- Added a 'snow flakes' effect on the site. It may slow down your computer though, depending on how powerful it is, so you can disable it by clicking on the link just below the banner.

- New 'games' section, in the left menu! Games are something that lack on the site. So I have added a 'quizz' game, just try it! If you want to send your own quizzes, just send me an email with the questions and the answers! (just don't [...]

Fan fic revamp

 

- New poll

- Regularly updated Balto fan arts (I will no more mention it now)

- Added an option for displaying the fan arts on mouse over (use the link at the bottom of the fan art page to activate it)

- Corrected the 'return' link in the fan art galleries, to come back to the right page

- For the fan arts and wallpapers, I've cut the galleries into smaller parts in order to be able to access the 'crowded' ones more easily. I use the same setting you choose for the number of galleries displayed on the fanarts (18 by default). (so fast access people can still choose to display all [...]

Big changes with fan arts

 

There has been a big change with the fan art system. Normally I wouldn't have written a news before a few days, but
I believe it is important to explain the changes now.
A usual complain about the fan arts, was the fact that they were updated only once a week or sometimes more.
So I changed the way the fan arts are managed, and now, instead of updating all the galleries at the same time, each gallery will be updated directly after having been checked!
So, the fan arts will still be checked before being displayed on the site, BUT you won't have to wait a week to see them! Count probably 1 [...]

- Added a FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions) that everyone should read before sending me an email.

- Changes on the left menu : added 3 characters / banners; the links now have a banner displayed; the Tops links are more often displayed. Added direct links to the Staff, FAQS, and awards pages.

- New moderation system on the site, for the comments (fanarts, fanfics, articles...)

- I've named many new moderators on the site; see the new Staff page to know who exactly. Many include [...]

New banner, new search engine...

 

- Changes on the pop up display of the shout boxes : added the smileys and link areas, and removed the right part.

- Splitted the fan art page into several, and added the choice for how many to display on one page.

- Updated the 'Balto Source Favorites artists', which is now composed of 12 artists instead of 9 previously.

- Added a link to the rules of the forum, at the top right, making them more visible.

Big update

 

To make things easier for me, and easier to read too, I've now decided to list the updates done on the site instead of always making sentences.
So the news things are :

- 8 new music videos

- 9 new articles

- Around 10 new fanfics

- New poll

- Huge changes on the shout boxes : I've made great changes in the code behind. Now you can choose to display the shout boxes only in the page, in full screen or pop up, by clicking on the links at the top. There you can also send quick messages by typing your message and directly pressing Enter on your keyboard.

- Changed the rules for fan arts, [...]

Fan art & wallpapers update

  steet add : I would like to notice to all the artists that there will be a new rule on the fan arts.

I already talked about that on the forums. But starting from the next fan art update, the only drawings allowed on the galleries are : drawings of the Balto characters, canines (wolves, dogs) and wolves in a human form. Don't forget that this is a Balto site, so most of the visitors want to see Balto related pictures.
However, I will allow people to add a link to an external account on the web, the link will be displayed in your gallery. So, before I start removing the drawings that don't [...]

Music videos + Balto Soundtrack

 

Maybe you have already noticed, but a new 'music video' page has appeared in the fan section.
I wanted to make that section since a few time ago, and the thing that decided me is that I have found a host for everyone, which is easy and permits everyone to upload yourself your videos.
So, you can now see music videos on the site (there are already 13 videos added!), and add yours. (in that case, go to the 'send' page and choose 'send a music video', then follow the instructions.)
I won't explain how to make music videos, so I have created a topic on the forums for people to give their [...]

More Balto 3 screenshots

 

I have updated the fanfics section with a good number of new ones. Rotramel has also updated his very first fanfic 'Jenna's journey', the one he is currently trying to publish.
There's a not-so-new poll on the site. You'll also find one new link to Balto sites, and some were updated.
Since there were some problems on the shout boxes (again), talks about mates are now only allowed in a new shout box, 'mate box'.
I have received some comics, most will appear at the next fan art update. There's one in the comic section though, made by Greykitty. If you're not sure what I'm expecting, then [...]

Balto Comic contest

 

First, there is a new poll on the site. At the moment, it seems that there are a good number of people who didn't register on the forums because they don't understand how to use it, so there may be something to do in that way in the future.
Talking about the forums, I have divided the fan section into fan art and fan fiction sections.

I have added 4 or 5 new sites in the 'links' section, two of the sites made it to the 'top' section, so check these sites!

You'll find a few new fanfics, and new awards too.

About the links, I have noticed that the page which concerns adding a link to [...]

New Balto Source Favorite section

 

There's a new poll on the site, the last one broke the record of votes (more than 500)
I have added a few fanfics from Rotramel and silver_balto.
On the forums, you'll see the last message on the shout box displayed at the top, just like on the site. So, this way, you'll be able to keep an eye on the shout box even when you're on the forum.

We have decided to include a new section in the fan arts : the Favorite section.
9 artists have been selected to be displayed at the top of the page. They have been chosen by me, considering the most popular and favorite artists on the site.
I don't [...]

Little update

 

This is just a little update this time. The main thing that changed since the last update, is the forum design. Probably everyone is already aware of this change, but with all the work that me and GamesOfLight put into this, it's still worth mentioning. So far, no one returned to the old design, so I guess everyone like it ;)
The poll was changed twice since the last update. There is a new article on the site, on the Cleveland Museum Exhibit of the true Balto. There is a new fanfic from Lone Wolf.
You'll find two or three new sites in the links section. Finally, AJ sent me a nice award for [...]

Some touching up

 

The news aren't really busy (we are still waiting for information on a possible Balto 4...), it will become more difficult with time to update the site with other things than fan creations.
But I'll try to improve the site as much as I can.
I created a new section in the forums : the 'game' section, for both forums games and video games talks.

There's a new poll, and a few new fanfics. You'll find two new Balto sites in the links section : one is the first ever italian site for the animated Balto, and the second is a deviantart fan group for Balto.


I added an article with official Balto [...]

More Balto 3 screenshots

 

I've added around 60 new screenshots from Balto 3, that you'll find in the gallery of course.

Two articles have been written since my last update. There are 3 new fanfics, and I've changed the poll again. If you go in the award page in the 'Contact' section, you'll find 2 new awards, which were done by the french fans for the one year of the site.

You'll find a new addition on the site : the 'Random link', which is located in the bottom of the left menu. It displays one link to a friend site (mostly Balto sites), and there are more than 100 different links. (the same ones that you'll find [...]

Wolf

 

I have changed the poll. One fanfic has been updated. I've made a few changes in the code of the site to make it slightly quicker, and to get it better referenced by search engines.
I've added two screensavers in the Fan -> Goodies section. (thanks to Dalhusky & Shdrex)
There are three new articles on the site, don't forget to read them!
You'll find new links in the 'links' section.

I would like to mention one thing that I'm not sure everyone is aware of. An animated film about wolves is in production. This is an entirely voluntary project, so it may not be released before a few [...]

Small update

 

As I don't have much time these days, this is only a very small update.

I added two fanfics, I changed the poll, and I added an article from Juuchan17. As soon as I get more time (I'm currently studying for my driving license), I will make more important updates.
The 500 signatures bar on the petition will soon be reached! Continue the efforts!

More on the articles

 

First, I've changed something on the fan art and wallpapers system : now, you'll be able to see which pictures have been correctly sent on the site, without having to wait for the next update.

I've changed the poll, added some fanfics, and a few links. From the results of the previous poll, it seems clear that most Balto fans did enjoy the 'white wolf' scene above everything else (57%!)

I've expanded the article system. Now, everyone can send articles on the site! You'll find a link explaining how to send an article in the Contact section or the articles sections.

Another change, is that [...]

Fan update

 

GamesOfLight : I updated the fan arts and the wallpapers on the site, and I changed the 'fan art of the week'.

steet : UPDATE : There was a small problem on the Lion King Source, with the creation of the galleries : the galleries were created in the wrong list (on balto source) instead of the list of artists on the lion king source. So if you couldn't create a gallery because of that, it should work now.

New section : Articles

 

As most of you have probably noticed, there have been a few changes on the site.

First, I moved the rules on the chat, so that they will only appear if you click on 'display the rules'. (I think you only have to read it once, so it was useless to display them all the time)

Then, I've added a new section for every Balto : the articles. This section is meant to contain good information that will be interesting for the Balto fans. Most of the articles that will be there, will come from the most interesting topics on the forums.
And of course, you can also write articles yourself! If you wish [...]

Typical update

 

GamesOfLight updated the fan arts, and the wallpapers. He changed the fan art of the week. I added some links to Balto websites, and two new fanfics from Rotramel. I also changed the poll. I promise to go back working more on the site in one week, but for now...

New 'webmaster associate'!

 

This is kind of a big news to me : from now on, I won't be the only one working on the site.

I have given GamesOfLight, a french fan, access to everything on the site. So he will be able to update things like fan arts for me!
He already updated fan arts and wallpapers, and he changed the 'fan art of the week'.
And don't worry, he is really trustful, and he spends a LOT of time on the site. The only reason you must don't know him, you english people, is that he can't speak much english.
Everyone should say good luck to him, because it's all but an easy task ;)

Edit : I would like to [...]

Huge Balto links update + Balto 2 soundtrack!

 

First of all, I've updated the fan arts, added two fanfics from Rotramel, and a few wallpapers.

The biggest update here concern the link section. This was probably one of the weak points of the site, but it's not anymore now. It is now divided in three sections.

* The first one contains more or less the same links than before, and they are the most interesting ones to me.
* The second one contains around 80 links...to Balto sites that are still online! You can guess that I made big researches for obtaining such a list, but it was worth the time I think!
* The third one is the most [...]

Balto 1 & 2 galleries finished!

 

I have finally completed the galleries for both Balto 1 and Balto 2, which represent around 200 new screenshots...No need to tell you where to find them. Only the Balto 3 will need to be completed now!

I have updated the fan arts, added a few fanfics, and a few new wallpapers. From the previous poll (which balto product would you like the best), it appears that most of you would just want a Balto 4 (37%), and in second a Balto video game (22%). I must say I'm a bit surprised by these results, because I would have thought that the Balto special edition dvd would have taken the lead. It's [...]

Changes for the fanfics and wallpapers

 

Fanfics and wallpapers were a pain to update, considering the fact I had to do everything manually. But this time is finished! I have changed the system, it was much work but it's working. Now it's easy for me to add fanfics and wallpapers, and you can even upload your wallpapers the same way as the fan arts! (but as the fan arts, they won't be displayed until I've checked them though.) The big change in the fanfic system is that you'll now be able to add comments to the fanfics you've read. So if you've read some, please give reviews, I'm sure the authors would appreciate that!

Balto 3 unofficial soundtrack!

 

I have two big news this time!

The first one is the opening of The Lion King Source. The name says it all, it's a Lion King site I've made, based on Balto Source model. You'll find the link in the upper left side of the site ;) However, I've temporarily used automatic translations for the text content, so don't worry if you don't understand anything...But, I will translate everything myself when I get the time.
Keep in mind that it will only be a secondary site though, and I'll now update it as often as I do with Balto Source. But I'll still try to complete it progressively. I know the [...]

Balto future on the first of april?

 

I've found an article that seems to put down all the rumors on a Balto 4...
It can be found here : The article state that "According to the recent news on the expansion of the Universal Home Entertainment Productions division (UHEP), big changes were expected. [...] Due to the poor sales performed by the latest installment in the Balto series, Universal Home Entertainment Productions does not plan any new sequel to the Balto franchise. However, a decision has been taken to bring back another old Amblin animated feature, An American Tail. A new series is currently in production, starting [...]

Soundtrack full cover

 

I've added two smilies on the shout boxes, and I've updated the fan arts.
Thanks to Gamesoflight, I've been able to add scans from the cover of the soundtrack of Balto, which you will find in the "Information -> Other" section of Balto 1. I've also moved the goodies and wallpapers in the fan section, which seems more logical.
There's also a new award from the french fan Wolf 250. (seems like nearly all of the awards sent to me were made by french fans...°x° )
Finally, since there were a lot of topics on animals, I've created a new section "animals" on the forums. If you [...]

I've of course updated the fan arts, and added a few fan fics too. There's also a new poll.
It is becoming more and more difficult to update the site, the main reason being that I have less and less free time to do so. So I think I will have to slow down with the updates. I just hope that people will finally understand that it is much better to send fan arts by the fan art send system instead of [...]

PETITION !!!

 

As most of you have noticed, a petition for Balto has been started. It would be too long to describe the reasons of it here, so for more info, check the topic on the forum here.

All I can say, is that I've made everything I could do to make it so that every Balto fan will want to sign it. Notice : I know that some people didn't sign it because they don't want some of the things included in the list. You're wrong! Even the most hardcore Balto fans wouldn't probably buy everything. This list is only here as an example. That's why I wrote this sentence in the petition at the end : [...]

I updated the fan arts, with an impressive number of drawings (I can't even count them now...), and no less than 14 new drawers! I changed the poll as you may have noticed, and I added new links to Balto sites (in the links section, of course).
I believe the site is becoming really complete now...I'm not sure I'll be able to change anything in the system. But, I still managed to solve one problem : on the shout boxes, you had to update manually and frequently to see the others posts. Now, the box is automatically updated every 20 sec. I'll probably give the choice of the frequency of [...]

Shout box changes

 

First of all, due to the requests of many since I forbid roleplaying on the shout box, I made another shout box exclusively for roleplaying.
Also on the shoutbox, I added a small list of background you can choose from, in order to make the shoutbox much prettier.
On the forums : I added a "star" system, which gives you a few stars according to the number of posts you made. I also added a lot of new avatars, mainly thanks to Baltra. And, I also added a board for roleplaying on the forums, too.
I updated the fan arts (I think I'll do one fan art update with every site update [...]

Finally, I've added 70+ screenshots from the beginning of Balto 3 in the gallery.
Wow, I can't believe that's all, with all the time I spent on this...

It makes everything fresher, I was becoming tired to always see the same pics :) The gallery for Balto 1 is nearly complete!

I've updated the fan arts, and added two new fan fics. Sorry for the wallpapers, I'll add them next time (too lazy at the moment)

You thought I was becoming lazy with the updates? Not at all : it's just that making this nearly all new design took me much time this week...I hope everyone will like it! There are too many changes for making a list, so you should just check for yourself the "new" Balto Source. I'm not sure if the blue-purple colors will be to the taste of everyone, so make comments ;)

Balto 3 released in the USA

 

After being shown on Cartoon Network two days ago, the second DTV sequel to Balto has finally reached the US market (the major one!), and also Canada. For this occasion, Universal launched an official website for Balto 3, which can be found at this adress : www.baltodvd.com. There isn't anything really interesting on it, but at least it is an official website. I also found the little flash game that was on the italian site, on the site of its creators, HERE (and it is in english. Scroll down to find it).

A not very original update

 

I've updated the fan art section with a lot of new drawings (I will not put the drawers list anymore since you can now see who sent new fan arts since last update, with the blue borders)
For most screenshots and fan arts on the site, borders will appear when you point the mouse on them, so that it gives a better feeling for the pics you can click on. I may have changed a few other things here and there, but can't remember what it was.
There are a LOT of new wallpapers from Pample, Shalaska and Catadventure, and also a few new winamp skins from Wolf FX Alex.

Finally, I've also added [...]

New send system

 

The major word of this update is : simplification! (at least, for me) Considering that I haven't got all the time I want to do everything I would, I've decided to "automatize" several things. You probably won't notice most, but there is a major one that concerns the fan arts (drawings). Now, you can send yourself your drawings on the site, under conditions (.jpg format only, with a resolution not too big) With this system, I was already able to update the fan arts with at least twice or less time than usual...And you won't see any difference in the galleries display, even though all the [...]

Balto Screenmates

 

First, I would like to congratulate all the visitors for breaking the 50.000 visits limit, and also for increasing so much the number of pages viewed by visitor! The only thing that I'm a bit afraid is that the site is taking more and more bandwith, and I wouldn't like the site to be a victim of its success. So I would like you to reduce the downloads on the site when it's not necessary (for example, viewing images or downloading music that you've already got on your hard drive).

You may have noticed that the forum has been a success, so it's not a test anymore and it's [...]
