There has been a minor change to Drako's Art Contest:

Due to some confusion as to how our Art Contests work, and the fact that they are hosted on both The Den and Playground sites (NSFW and SFW), we have made a minor change to the Art Contest.


We already censor NSFW thumbnails for the Playground.


Now, we added a name field to the Nomination Form, so artists may know who nominated the art.

The name field is completely optional and Nominations may still be anonymous.


We have also added the following line to our Nomination Page:

"Note: Nominations may be pending the artist's reply to our "Notice of Nomination" and may not be included for voting if the artist does not wish to participate."


We ALWAYS inform the artists when their work gets nominated into the Art Contest.  The artists have the FULL RIGHT to reply to that Notice, which gives them the full right to decide to not participate in the Art Contest.  So while we may list art when it gets Nominated on our sites, the artist can decide not to partake and no art is active in the contest until it goes into the polls.

New Domains for Drako's Den and Playground

We have been keeping track of our domains on FreeDNS and have noted there has been a need to move all sites to new domains.


Drako's Den and Drako's Playground are the only affected sites.


The domain server FreeDNS has been working on server maintenance that has taken the domains offline 7 times in the past 5 days.  Many of these outages lasting 12+ hours per time.


With that in mind, we are moving both websites to new domains.


Drako's Den is now:

https://cutt.ly/drako


Drako's Playground is now:

http://tiny.cc/drako


We are working to update all affected links to the sites to new domains and will work with search engines to get the domains switched over to the new ones.

Also, if you got to this page via drako.funurl.com or tnsc.thrill.to we are asking you to update your bookmarks as we plan to close all old domains at the end of the year.

As a side note, our Parent Site (Drako's Website Services) is currently down due to the main server (Bast) not having power.  (Bast is a private server provided to us by a fellow Fur, DennisTheTiger)


Bast is in an area currently being affected by wildfires and subsequent power outages from the power company shutting down power to customers in an effort to reduce the risks of new fires.  (Hint hint, its CA)


We currently do not have plans regarding moving files from Bast at this time:

Mainly due to the fact we do not have access to said files, and because we do wish to continue to use the server space that was donated to us.

Making some tweaks to Drako's Den

Many of you complained that the text on Drako's Den was hard to read.

(The lighter grey on a dark background that we had.)

We initially didn't see the problem while coding the site with the color sceme that came with this layout, but after many people stating it as an issue, we decided to investigate.

We heard you and found that your complaints had some point to them.

So as of today, we have begun to tweak the text and link colors on the site to make them brighter and hopefully, easier to read.  We decided to go with an off blue for these new colors and will be rolling them out sitewide shortly.

Please feel free to tell us what you think.
