> Let me know if there is something you'd like to see changed. :)


I’ve started tinkering with the CSS again. No more secret theme switching by clicking on my face up there. :)

I’m going for black and white and the default blue for all links. The previous classification for site links, links to sister sites, links to Wikipedia and all other links didn’t really work with all the redirections I had implemented. Thus, be gone!

I’m sticking to Garamond as my favorite font even though I must admit it looks absolutely horrible when viewed on Windows without Clear Type. Oh well! Most people will be reading the site via a feed reader anyway, I guess.

I’ll also try to stick to a larger than average font-size. I haven’t decided whether I should be using Google Web Fonts.

Let me know if there is something you’d like to see changed. :)

How does the referrer thingy at the bottom of the post work? The two pages linked seem not to link to this post?

Regarding styling: I’d prefer a non-serif font.

The referrer thing works as follows: if a visitor to the wiki has referrer information, the wiki fetches this page and searches for a link to the page. If that works, it remembers the link. This means that eventually referrals expire if nobody ever follows them. Normally this works very well. Some sites such as Blogspot offer users a blog-roll. As far as I understand it, users will then see the n most recently updated entries or a random selection. Either way, by the time other visitors try and check the referral, it’s no longer being displayed.

If you check Self:action=refer you will notice that at the moment the authors of Dreams of Mythic Fantasy, The City of Iron and Troll and Flame seem to have me listed on their blog-roll. All of them are Blogspot blogs. :)

As for sans-serif, try this link. (Your preference is set in a cookie.) Feel free to switch back.
