    4-7 days sounds about right.

    Wow! Thanks a lot. Very cool that we both went to the same school chain. Glad you like my site. Now, if I could just get permanent employment. ;) Flash is one of the most specacular web creations. I latched onto it in a week's time. Great stuff and it doesn't use Lingo. Used to make my head hurt. :p

    Christmas time was really fun around here. We had 6 different menus and dedicated all of December to holiday themes. I wouldn't want to keep any of them up for too long because I enjoy the default rotating menu. I spent the most time on that one and the bizillion characters included. LOL! :concern: We're still working by ear. I thought the anniversary menu was up for too long, but St. Patty's feels like it came and went so fast. There's always next year. :)

    Yeah I hear you about permanent employment - I HAD been working in our field for like five years when the economy went south. I was the web designer at Sierra.com, a dream job, but just need a new dream now :p . At least you are in SF and I am in Seattle, so when it starts to pick up again, we are in the right places.

    Flash - I've done mostly 30-60 second animations spotlighting different software titles, but most recently had a contract where I taught myself how to do interactive maps, so that was thrilling. Flash is only limited by imagination, and I LOVE it!

    It doesn't feel like we'll ever get sick of these cool menus you've put your heart into. I've got to stand by my two weeks opinion, because that St. Patrick's Day one came and went quick to me as well, and I've been logging in multiple times daily. I assume many people never even got to see it :cry: Do you have webspace where you keep your old holiday menus? I'd love to see them, and I can't be the only one...

    Flash really hooked me into multimedia. It's funny - I learned in 4 and it's already to 6 (MX).

    The past menus will be back into rotation later this year.

    Ummm....Froggy, when I go to your website, all I get is a big, green, blank screen. I have the latest IE for Mac, which is 5.1 :o

    Um, I dunno :(

    7 days would be very cool, but they need to be up a bit before the holiday so you can see it 3 days before, the day itself, then 3 days after. If the fans demand it i don't see why there couldn't be a menu gallery either on MC or your own site. I mean sooooo much work goes into them it's a shame to be limited to even 7 days. Ken Plume's old MC banners have their own gallery on the site where you can see them all.

    That page pops up a new window to browse his portfolio. If you have something like an ad pop-up stopper enabled, you'd have to turn it off temporarily. It could be a different issue with Mac IE, but it was my first thought...

    My site launches a javascript window now. If you have pop-ups disabled then it won't show up. Working on a lanuch button.

    JAVA STUFF: Well, I haven't altered this new version of IE since I started using it about 3 months ago, and I've got pop-ups all over the place. I've also got those new ads that float all over a website, too.

    I'll be waiting for that "launch" button ;)

    Happy, as a Mac user, to complicate things again :p

    It is Mac complient. It's probably something in the settings. This is the first issue that has come up. Still needed to code an alternate rout on there for those with disabled Javascript. Check it again.

    It works!

    Now there's a message that says: Click here if the window doesn't appear or for a different rescaled version.

    Holy crap, you're fast :eek:

    What makes the menus special is that they are only up for a limited time. Ken Plume's menus were only cataloged once the graphics transition was made.

    It's great that these menus are so well received, although I don't want my own site overrun by Muppets. There's enough on there already. I do like your three days/three days rule. Maybe we will instate that. I tell you , the anniversary menu was up so long that even I was getting sick of it. LOL!

    Re: Luke

    As far as i remember, Ken's menus were catalogued there way before the graphics transition was made. Dunno who told you that ? People were encouraged to use them as banners i thought. I know what you mean though, it is better to keep the flash one's special and not have them on display all the time. As long as they stay in rotation i guess.

    Really? I never noticed. Maybe it was an addition toward the end of the old site.

    Ken's graphics have been located on our current banners page since mid-1998. The reason they are there is not necessarily to provide a gallery of the images, but rather so that people can choose what Muppet Central banner to put on their site. We had requests that people could use a Dark Crystal banner for example, so we made them all available for variety and so they could be customized somewhat with other Henson fan sites that are out there. So if someone has a Grover site, they could use a Grover MC banner.
