The B-Raters, Design Notes

Hi all. Sorry for the absence but we had The B-Raters' First Annual Halloween B-Movie Marathon last weekend and that took a bit of preparation and execution. I'm pleased to say we not only pulled it off but actually had a few viewers - a few (not many). But that's okay. Hopefully, we'll be able to bring you more Halloween and other holiday specials in the future and, as we continue to learn more about how to do what we're doing and improve, we'll not only be able to bring you better B-Raters episodes but also more of whatever it is that brings in viewers. We might do it nekkit, if it helps (I don't think it will).

As for the layout and design efforts here, we are also still working to get those right. I know we need to lighten the backgrounds to make it easier to read the text but, because of their designs, it's proven harder than we expected. Trying to make them transparent only resulted in making them darker and larger in size which lead to lengthy load times. But we haven't given-up and are still working in that direction.

Unfortunately, the Holidays are here and we have to get through that. We don't have any specials planned or anything, just familial gatherings and such, like most good 'Muricans.
