The site runs on a custom built CMS with a admin area to create pages etc

I love that animation you put on the front page with Dizzy moving a box into another hut. :v2_dizzy_clapping:

Thanks. :) We're moving tomorrow so Tony's gonna take everything down later tonight and take all the hardware himself to the new house tomorrow. No idea how long we'll be back online but he said he can set up a temporary local connection with a dongle if needed.

Looks like the site is back online. :)

Just had a look at Colin's links, I certainly remember both those layouts, this was definitely before I joined the Community.
Both sites certainly had a thing for radio and webrings back in the day :p

Yep and we're back in business. :) Didn't mean to spend long on it today but it took 4 hours to convert the announcements page to a blogger for updates. :P Was fun having to hack it to pieces to remove all the extra annoying bits.

I remember the webrings. I was involved in a bunch of webrings for a number of sites I was maintaining at the time for the Seiken Densetsu series. Those banners got huge fast and could take up 50% of the front pages. I think Tommy Pereira came up with the idea of the more graphic webring using the large images of the Yolkfolk. That was one massive image, haha!
