Yup, some of the files (including the chibiicy one you mentioned) were missing, either because I absentmindedly skipped over them or they didn't comply with atspace's 200kb size limit. I've clicked on everything clickable and it's all worked for me, so the site should be safe for viewing now. Thanks again for checking out my application and taking the time to comment! =)

I know some people might find splash pages annoying, but that's where I wanted to put fanlisting or affiliate links, and if I'm accepted that's where I would put the Xepher newsbox, as it would be too messy on the updates page. As for the diagonal cursor, I thought it was fun, but if too many people find it annoying I can always change it ^_^

And thank you so much for telling me about the broken links, I'll go check them out right now! I remember someone calling while I was uploading (I have dial-up) so maybe I skipped over a few when I went back to uploading.

Desired username: suku


Site Description: Basically, a personal art site with a few things on the side, like tutorials and wallpapers. The vast majority of what I do is anime, as I enjoy it the most. I'm taking Drawing and Painting this year, so whatever projects I upload from that class will probably be more realistic. I've also been playing with a different style - it's like a cross between realism and dolls - that you can see here (bah, this example is about a year old; I had a far more recent example but now I can't find it. Figures ~_~). I do mostly CG, but I'd like to play with watercolor soon.

As for my webdesign skills, I know enough HTML and CSS to scrape by. Here's my sample site:

I used Paint Shop Pro 8's image slicing tool, Microsoft FrontPage, and some Notepad. I haven't coded in a while, so I just modified the stylesheet I was using for my old site. I hope that's alright ^^; I also have a DeviantArt account, if you'd like to see everything in one place, though it's pretty much the same content as the site:

Why "Suku Suku"?
It actually doesn't mean anything in particular; my little brother and I had some fake words we'd use when we were younger (kind of like twin speech, except we're not twins) and suku suku was one of them. It's the only one I remember besides kushkala kashka. But, because I think "suku suku" sounds cute and because it doesn't mean anything - thus not forcing me to have a revolving theme for my layouts - I chose it :3 It probably sounds like some weird Japanesey thing, but I swear that's not what it's from, and if it does mean anything in any other language, I don't care 'cause it's my word! x)

Why Xepher?
Because the Xepher offer is amazing. I haven't found anyone else offering this amount of webspace and freedom at a price I can actually afford. I also don't think I've seen a community quite like Xepher has behind it. I've been scuttling about the forums for a bit (why yes, that cockroach -was- me xD) and lurking for even longer, and you guys seem like a very nice bunch :3

How do we know you won't die on us?
Because I have no other choice :'D I have to construct and maintain a website as a graduation requirement. Plus, I love drawing. I've been scribbling for years now and I'm not about to stop anytime soon (: But, I'm not sure if I completely understand the "semi-regular" updates requirement. Is monthly okay?

And that's pretty much it. Thank you for taking the time to read this <3

That was incredibly thoughtful of you! 0-0

God, how I love Katamari Damacy <3 I'll have to get to the sequel once I finish up KH2.

And SNES Lion King is so much fun *-* I'll have to get a new power plug for my system so's I can play it again ;;

Switching entirely to CGI films?! D: I read that on Wikipedia, and, the source being Wikipedia, I chose not to believe it x( So sad. I haven't seen Home on the Range; I wasn't very interested in it when I saw the previews and never remembered to rent it. You liked The Wild? I saw a teensy bit of it, the part with the crocodiles (I dug them), I'll have to see the whole thing sometime. But I agree, it's not like their CGI movies are terrible, so I'll just enjoy them for now and catch up on some foreign animation... But, since you reminded me that history repeats itself, I shall wait for the day when hand-drawn animation comes back in style... hopefully I won't be too senile by then ¦3

Yeah, CGI movies are definitely the popular thing right now. I can't remember the last time Disney released a hand-drawn film that wasn't a sequel. I like CGI, but I -love- hand-drawn animation. I grew up with that sort of animation (I learned English watching Disney movies, for crying out loud), and it's quite painful to see it slowly disappearing ):

General Chat / Spore = Best Game Ever?

Oh, those three little words in that order raise such fury within me x3 But Spore does seem incredibly promising. I got to see some of it on E3 and what I saw was amazing. If it comes out for the Wii, I'll be all over it :3

La la, the new library just opened in town (which I've been waiting three years for!) so I'll be sure to check out some of the books on these lists :3 Though there seems to be a lot of fantasy, and I'm not much of a fan e.e; My brother is forcing me to read Eragon and it's not going very well xD Anyway. Here is Pidgie's obscenely short list:

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
Not fantasy at all, but it's a childhood favorite of mine; very heartwarming/wrenching.

The Moorchild by Eloise McGraw
It's fantasy... ish. I think. o.o; But it's my favorite book on this side of the universe and very easy to read; shouldn't take you more than an hour. The dedication gets me every time :'D

Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs, and Hannibal by Thomas Harris
If you enjoyed the movies then the books are must-reads ;D

Yay, I love these! My Spanish 4 teacher had an optical illusions book on the shelf next to my desk, so whenever I finished a test I'd flip through it and be amazed :3
