For the first time since I started this site more than two years ago I am considering a design overhaul. I am hoping to achieve a couple of things.
- A wider main panel, with substantially wider image sizes, to make the Bespoke Art more visible and the Tales of Gnosis College more vivid and easier to read.
- Provide higher contrasts and make the site more visually interesting.
- Add a left-hand sidebar and a footer area, possibly with the aim of posting advertising. I still honor the ideals involved in amateur creation, and please make no mistake, I intend for the content here always to be free. But the costs of creating and promoting all this content are considerable, and I can do more here if I can recoup at least some of them. Think of it this way — earnings can be plowed back into the Erotic Mad Science project, and that will mean more art for everyone.
- Due notice of adult content. In a perfect world, I wouldn’t ever feel tempted to do this. But we don’t live in an ideal world. There are just too many people out there who can’t stand to see someone else having a good time, and I need to at least try to ward them off.
Nothing is set down in stone right now, but I do have a proposed draft site, using a customized version of Sayontan Sinha’s remarkably powerful and flexible WordPress theme Suffusion. Here’s a sneak peak:
You can click for larger. It’s set up with examples of different kinds of posts I do, as well as a sample page and a sample comic, and even dummy ads where I think they would be likely to appear. You don’t have to limit yourself to just the picture, though. It’s set up in a subdomain of its own and I invite you to head on over and take a look around. Let me know what you think, either by leaving comments here, there, or just getting touch with me directly. All sincere and non-abusive opinions will be very welcome.
