My name's Melvian and I make typefaces, character animations, maybe software on occasion, and have an interest in what feels like way too many things (but mostly relating to design and technology). Lately I've been lurking around "web revival" circles and want to give some communities a shot, so here I am. I do have a website, it's still very new, and you can check it out here. Other than that I'm curious to see how things go and what I have to contribute, if anything.

Hello! I've come across your site b4, don't remember how. Nice dragon! Have you considered joining the Draconic Webring? Also, I noticed your links section is empty? Have you considered a button wall? You're an artist so I bet you could create an 88x31 in no time flat! If you do end up going that route, let me know, I'd love to exchange buttons with you.

Finally, I like your approach to site updating. One feed where you'll update people about everything, I think it's a valid approach :^)

I remember seeing Melvian recently on the Melonland forum.

Hello! Welcome to the forum!

Thank you!

Oh hey, I've been to your site quite a bit as well! I really like it, especially with all the directories and buttons you have! It proved very valuable as I started getting to know these circles. I'm pretty surprised that you found my site too! Also, thanks!

quoting Eternity:

I did apply for the Draconic Webring, but I haven't gotten a response yet.

quoting Eternity:

About the links section, my original plan was to put all the webrings there but I realized it made more sense to put them on my homepage. In an ideal world I'd have a button wall too, I just hadn't found anyone I wanted to trade buttons with yet (which is a little embarrassing to say now).

I do have an 88x31 badge! my badge

And I'd totally be down for trading buttons with you!

Thanks! I've never tried a format like this before, so we'll see how it goes.

Awesome, yo. Added. I don't know why I didn't see your button when I visited. Keep up all that great work on your site :^)

Thanks! I didn't have my button on my website until just now.
