I’ve just updated wordpress to version 2.6. It was kinda long overdue. The archives should now work correctly.

However, unfortunately, the update completely broke the old theme as it’s not compatible with the new version of wordpress. So, I’m forced to change the theme. All the pages need to be manually edited. You’ll notice the styling will be broken on the pages for the moment. Please ignore that while I update them all… which may take a while.

P.S. We would also like to request some help to design a new banner for m33w! The width is exactly 760 pixels. Height can be anywhere from like 80 pixels to 150 pixels. To submit, simply link your picture right here on these comments, using the html img tag or by e-mailing to xess@m33w-fansubs.com. Try to match the colour scheme of the blog. JPG only please. Other image types will eat up too much bandwidth.

Best design wins, uhh… something.

P.P.S. Kyonko will improve your chances of winning (nothing).

    I love the new theme! :) I’m glad you guys upgraded. Does this mean that the RSS works now?

    Oh, and I’ll make a banner and submit it a.s.a.p! ๐Ÿ˜€

    The RSS fails to read from firefox, but it runs fine with Google Reader or whatever

    new theme is pretty good, even though i loved the old one. well, i am planning to make a banner for you guys, so, do you guys want anything on it besides “M.3.3.W Fansubs”, like your IRC or something like that?

    Basically “M.3.3.W Fansubs” plus the IRC channel is all the info that’s needed. “Part of the Baka-Wolf Network” in small print if you have room to spare.

    New layout is really great.

  11. I finished the banner: http://sunshined.org/images/m33wbanner.jpg

    I used some colors from the sidebar and I took the image from episode 13 of SA: http://brigade.baka-wolf.com/showthread.php?t=4771

    Well, I hope you like it! ^^

  12. Umm, about my comment above, the link to the image isn’t showing because the color of it is white. You can see it if you highlight the text though..

    Oh duh, it went into moderation. Anyways, I put your banner up Hazel, and changed the colour of links to be not white, but now everything looks kinda strange -_- (nvm, i managed to fix everything else turning blue too)

    i think the new theme is ok, although i feel that it is aimed towards a more female audience because of all the lighter colors and such (maybe because it is?). i dont particularly mind tho. but it does look refreshing ๐Ÿ˜€

    Hi m33w ^^ Thanks for always doing a great job on these fansubs, I’m able to say you’re my favourite subbing group. It’s great how you always keep us updated on everything. Anyways I attempted a new banner for you guys. A Kyonko nekomimi banner XD It’s pretty simple; I wasn’t sure what colour to use since there are so many different colours on the site right now. But I can easily change anything on it ๐Ÿ˜›

    okay, lemme figure out how to get a random banner thingy going

  22. It’s so bizarre seeing something I made, put up in public for everyone to see. :S lol! Thanks for putting it up! <3 I hope my banner wasn’t too plain.. :\

    (Oh god Kyonko YES! :D)

    The new theme definitely… surprised me. But, where’d the google ads go? ๐Ÿ˜ (not that anyone ever clicks them, but..)

    I like the new look myself. Very, uh, happy~.

    Don’t have much else to say (as was posted on the cbox by tun, there will be some delays on ItaKiss, sorry).

    uguu, i am working on rendering a really cute picture of haruka, so m.3.3.w, please wait for my submission xD

    the render is high res, so its taking me a long while to render, besides, i am gonna put a lot of effort into the banner. oh, yeah, my rendering will be stalled for a couple of hours, so.. yeah….

    i was also wondering, how long will you guys take submissions for the banner?

  25. Burnt Toast
    7:48 pm on July 26th, 2008

    Is this the color scheme you are going to use for the site or will it change?

    Also, it would be cool–if wordpress is capable of this–to have the banners rotate; like a small script that would randomly select a banner so it would change every time someone logs onto the site.

    wow, thank you all for your submissions. I didn’t expect to get so many good ones. We have a total of eight banners up currently. A random banner is loaded every time you refresh. But because of the caching behaviour of browsers, this may not always happen. Thanks again!

    There’s a typo on ‘Where’ in your banner. Could you correct that so I can re-upload?

    tell me if its overcontrasted, i usually work with really dark stuff, so… i wouldn’t really noticed xD

    so yeah, just tell me ๐Ÿ˜€

    hope you guys like it, it took me 2 days (around 3 hours each) to do it (counting rendering)

    It’s good to hear that the site’s finally running on the latest version of WordPress (actually, there’s 2.6.1 already). Now I can finally see the earliest posts of the admins and users.

    Oi! Please make some extension. I want to submit a banner too. ^^,

    i have always wanted to do something like a banner for quite a while, this seemed like an awesome opportunity, so yeah… ๐Ÿ˜€

    people tell me that most of my sigs are like banners due to their width, so they keep telling me to do banners instead xD

    Oh yeah, if people don’t know (highly doubt that though), the picture is of Tadashi from Ep13 when he delivered the smile that would stop crying babies.

    (Yes, I thought that at that moment and started chuckling; and yeah I’m a dude – lol rambling)

    Wow, so many good banners. It’s going to be hard to choose. I’m probably going to keep the best 8 in rotation. For those who didn’t make it, thanks for your effort, but we can’t put up all the banners unfortunately.
