The people who take graphics from this site are becoming increasingly helpful. I just came across a girl who had stolen the entire menu, and I was able to get the Flora and Layla buttons back! She would have had a decent site, if it wasn't trying to mimic this one. Oh well.
Any other episodes SHOULD still be working, these were just saved as drafts, according to the email. For now all I can do is find a different hosting site so that I can re-post them as soon as possible.
It's Emma again, and I've been working to get the pages up and running after the image incident. I've been able to recover most, even though the copies I find through Google Images are in shabby shape. I know it's still pretty bare, but I'm about to open up the fan art page for you. You can find your name in the "artists" page if you've ever sent in art, and it would be a great favor if you could send me any copy you have of the art you've submitted. I have a few files saved, but not many, so any help is welcomed!
Three pages have been recovered so far. Now you can enjoy the episodes, character bios, and music videos again! It might take more time to have the rest of the pages in working condition, but I'm doing my best.
Thank-you to everyone who contacted me with concerns about the episodes page, and to everyone else who has managed to remain patient.
Edit: The dolls page is good to go.
I'm off for now. What I've been attempting to work out today is the issue of rapidly disappearing images. If anyone notices (and it's a fact that you will) lost images, please contact me with a link so that I can deal with that post specifically. I'll begin replacing the images on the outfits page as soon as I possibly can. Thank you for your patience, it's much appreciated.
It's Emma again. If you haven't read the post I made last night, it's probably best to see that one first.
I'm not sure what's up with the disappearing pictures. Some that were fine last night are gone this afternoon. Thank the stars, Phoebe is a packrat verging on hoarder, and has a huge Winx-Fairies folder on her laptop, also where I'm posting this from. We're going to work like madmen to get the images sorted out.
I've talked over email with a few who've had concerns, and the gist is this:
-Yes, Phoebe is still alive.
-No, she has no interest in remaining admin of Winx-Fairies. That's where I come in.
-Yes, she still cares about it and all of the people who have made it what it is today.
Why was I chosen? I still don't know. I work with Phoebe (I work full-time, except Mondays and Wednesdays, off at 6:00) and have been an avid Winx Club fan since the sixth grade. I haven't had much experience with the online fandom, but I'm a quick learner. I also have Phoebe on-hand; luckily she's willing to ease me into this.
Hi, I'm Emma. It hasn't been easy to do, but Phoebe and I moved all of the blog permissions from her personal account and onto the WinxFairies.firstname.lastname@example.org account, which we came up with a slightly better password to. I'm sure it must have taken a lot of deliberation, but that account is now mine. I understand that there are people who deserve it more than I do, and not everyone will take to the change right away. In spite of this, I'm going to do my best to pick up where she left off. If this doesn’t work, all the permissions are to go to Kikurukina. Now on to housekeeping. I don’t have access to the account email@example.com, and there were over 900 unread messages in it last I had seen it. If you had sent something that you wanted posted to the Fan Creations page, resend it to the usual Winxfairies.firstname.lastname@example.org. (Note: I‘m going to be setting up a poll on FC regarding cleaning up the fan fictions. Check it out to have a say, I‘ll be posting about it on here later.) Phoebe also left with the possibility of a Winx-Fairies makeover. If you could email design ideas to me that would be wonderful, I’d love some ideas to go along with the possible layout drawings she left. Don’t worry, no major changes. Sorry, I know that’s a lot to take in for one post. I can’t wait to get to know everyone here.
Edit: Ohmylord there have been a few image issues on the blogs. I’ll get on that ASAP. It’s midnight where I am, so I’ll do all I can for tonight.
I have been tinkering with this idea of us collectively watching the first season of the Winx Club together on a certain night and then we can talk about it in the chat box or somewhere else (if anyone one has a good idea).
What do you think?
I would post the episode here on Winx-Fairies and we could all watch it on a certain night/day and discuss it. This could be a weekly thing. I think it would be nice to help newer fans get up to speed about the older seasons and we could talk about things that we liked or disliked in that episode and how we wished it had stayed in the Nick specials.
Also, I'm thinking that we watch the RAI English/Cinelume version rather than the 4kids to get newer fans up to speed.
