Slightly Changing Layout

While messing around with our main page today I decided to move the affiliates into their own navigational pane to the left. I hope this helps the site look better instead of looking scrunched together. We have an announcement today and that's in regards to a new design. We are planning to launch Version 5 some time in March of 2006 hopefully with part of the Novel Database for the JP Encyclopedia. We're hoping to complete all the other sections: The Toys, The Rides, and Gaming online before this new version.
Hello To All!

Hello everybody! This is DiloRaptor here, if you've been on the Jurassic Park Legacy forum or have perhaps seen the Staff page, then you probably already know that I am the Moderator and News Provider here at the site and forum. I'll just say a little about myself so all you visitors can get to know about me. I'm 15 years old and I go by the name Chris, I am a Sophmore in High School and i'm an avid fan of the Jurassic Park series, i've been one ever since I was only 5 years old. How did I become part of the staff here? Well basically, I joined the forum and posted for a short time and soon after, befriended Tyrannosaur, the webmaster here at JPLegacy, and well, thats pretty much it. I've been loving it here ever since and i'm really glad to see that the new news system is up, you'll all be seeing a lot more of me here on the main page! By the way, be sure to have a Happy Holiday, celebrate it with your family, stay safe and be good or you might get coal instead of presents!

That's right folks we're now using a brand spanking new news system. So expect to see reports from all of our staff. There is a new section online currently and that's our Exhibits section. We will possibly be adding more information to this section as time progresses, but for now we included some select pictures from my offline image collection and some general background information about these exhibits.
Also, with so many holidays going on during the month of December we would like to take the time to wish everybody a safe and happy holiday season this year.
I took the liberty today to archive the months of November and October into our archives today to clear the index page up slightly. Also for those who have e-mailed me in the last week or so there may be a slight delay in adding you as an affiliate (about a week or so).
Subject: Stan Winston on JP4 Date: 12/09/2005 Author: Tyrannosaur
Credit:MovieHole.Net (click the link to see the full article) Oviraptor has pointed out a very important Stan Winston interview that was released by MovieHole.Net tonight in reference to the status of Jurassic Park 4.
Not to be worried though, he’s got a few other projects on the boil. He’s got a film he’s producing in the Isle of Man, is working on “Antarctica” (“that will be digital. It’s not fantasy. It’s a true-story about these sled dogs that survived over a year when they were left behind. Wonderful human interest story”) as well as a couple of other sequels on the bubble, “Jurassic Park 4” and “Terminator 4”, but at the moment “the scripts don’t exist right now. They’re always talking about them, but until it is, it ain’t”.
Unfortunately things are looking dreary again for the possibility of a fourth film to the series. We're still hopeful a script will be made soon though.
