Art gallery names
« on: July 02, 2004, 10:02:05 AM »

Due to popular demand, I'd like to start an art gallery. What should I call it?

I'd prefer it to be something Hogsmeade related, rather than Hogwarts or Diagon Alley, but I'm not too picky.

Post or PM your ideas.

There may be points in it for you. :D

I was thinking maybe something to do with portraits, like the portraits in the castle. Maybe Portrait Gallery?

Lol, and a good one too!
How about "the Wizarding World of Art"? No? Then how about Godric's Gallery?
Hehe, I'm on a roll with alliteration here. The only other suggestion I can think of is Hogsmeade Gallery.

[edit: How about Hengist's Gallery? I was just looking at the hp-lexicon and it said that he was the founder of the wizard-village.]

I got it sorted out. Sort of. Well, it's working well enough. Once I get a few more things taken care of, I'll post the link.

What's the title? I'll make a banner for it.

(Also, have you decided which color schemes you'd like me to use for the Common Rooms? I'm going away next Monday so if you'd like me to get any of that done beforehand I'd have to start soon.)

Actually, it's going to be somewhere else, so it won't need a banner.

And sad to say, I haven't had a chance to test the other buttons yet. I'll try and do that tonight. Hopefully it'll give you enough time.

How's the site going? Is it going well, or bad?

It's going okay, but I've been busy, sick, and tired, so I haven't had a chance to do more than some prelim work. Hopefully within the next week or two. But no promises.

Pretty clever.  I like it too.  It does step outside of the HP/Hogsmeade world, but so what?
