Ok I want some member input about the slideshow.
I've been experimenting with the slideshow a little bit and I think it would be nice to try to change it up a little.  I found a lot of javascript codes and programs but I don't know the first thing about that stuff so I turned to Photobucket.
I like the photobucket slideshow for 2 reasons: 1 - it shuffles better than the other one did. The other one sometimes showed the same pic every other pic like 4 times and that can get annoying if you're looking for a specific picture especially since there are over 90 (don't know how many exactly, i stopped counting at 90 and there were still more) pictures in the slideshow. 
2 - If you mouse over the bottom right corner, Play/Stop, Forward and Backward buttons appear which I really like.

Now the only con here is that each slideshow only allows 100 images.  That could be a problem because we probably have over 100 images to show. 
However, I've found that you can run two different photobucket slideshows on the same page (as you can see right now) and the other code does not allow that.

So here is my question, do you like the photobucket slideshow(s) more or should we keep the original?

I like the new one...but, since they only hold 100 photos why cant you run two like it is now?  Then maybe we can put some villains in there too.

Keep the new one, and make one for villains as Speedy suggested, or else move all old and retired into one.  If we get too full we may have to allow only one pic per person tho.

Thats what I said in my post... that it sucked that it could only hold 100 BUT that I could run more than one slideshow on a page as a remedy for that.

I love the new one..especially now that we have Villains in it. I'll get you a pic of my Brute today!! XD

Seriously though, the new ones look cooler. And as has been suggested if we get too full I would also suggest moving all the retired toons to a different slideshow on a page dedicated for them



Just a little warning though. The new slideshow seems to cause FireFox to crash often.

I use Firefox exclusively.  I haven't crashed once.  Do you have the latest version?
