Since the "Image of the Day" feature was first introduced a little more than 4 years and 2 months ago, it has provided the addition of over 1500 images to Fringes' Galleries! While impressive, those numbers mean it is also time for some changes.

The fact of the matter is that there are only so many pictures that can be gleaned from the Phantasy Star games, books, and related material. At this point, some of those sources have been exhausted completely in this respect. While I do have a few additional sources that I plan to tap, continuing to add new images at the rate of one per day would exhaust almost all sources currently available to me by the end of the year.

To extend the lifetime of the "Image of the Day" feature, it needs to undergo a change. The daily schedule is moving to a triweekly event. New images will now be featured on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. The title "Image of the Day" has been changed to "Featured Images" in most places around the site to reflect this change.

I've enjoyed the results of our Featured Images quite a bit over the past few years. We've had some great discussions about the visual design and world building of Phantasy Star. I like to think that everyone who has taken part gained a new appreciation for some of the series' finer details and lore. I want to thank everyone who has contributed to the success of the feature in these past years. I look forward to continuing those discussions throughout this year and next! :D

Hope it's okay to comment on this. Here's my two cents. I've enjoyed seeing the "Image Of The Day" and will miss it, however, I do understand why you've had to change it somewhat. That being said, I strongly dislike most change. Yes, I realize that is coming from me, the same one who loves to change her avatars and signatures frequently. What can I say?? Guess I'm just fickle. :silly:

Just wondering have you thought of changing it to "Image Of The Week" and perhaps only doing one image a week? That would surely save up some Images for down the road. I don't know what it is but I just like the title of "Image Of The Day (or Week)" better than "Featured Image".

Okay, nuff said, and I apologize if I've stepped out of bounds in any way by giving my opinion on the subject. I'm sure either way will work out fine.

I considered making it weekly briefly, but I thought that might be too much of a cut back right now. When I have a chance to gather up more images and figure out how long three days a week will carry us, I might revisit the idea of going to a weekly schedule. Thanks for the suggestion, though. :)
