Artist Page is Up

I did not do most of the updating this time (too much overtime at my real work) but the artist page is now live (thank you president :D). If you are an artist at MiniComi this year, please check that your artist information is correct.

There were quite some issues trying to get everyone’s images linked. All those who has not submitted an image or if your image does not work an Origami Cat placeholder is used.

The major reasons for your image not working is as follows:
– The link does not work (a few tinyurls resulted in error)
– The image was already removed when I tried to access it
– Those who have submitted images not in the right size as requested are automatically resized to 100 x 100 px by website code, so there are chances the resized image may not look as nice as your original image.
– TIF files do not work in links. I have re-saved your image to JPG by default.

If you wish to edit your information or image, please email them to me directly to the email below. Please include your Table number as shown on the artist page for easier looking you up. It is recommended to use sites which allow direct linking (such as Photobucket.com) when you submit the images to make things easier 😀
