Page Policy and technical summary (for the freaks)

Tech. Info: Hardware | Software | Provider/Host server

This page started in October 1996 on AOL, intended as a "door" into the Lion King fandom, all I had was the materials collected from other pages. This is the main idea behind my page:

1.) Providing Lion King related stuff that you won't find elsewhere.
There are too many pages that collect TLK stuff from others and put them together for the dozenth time.

2.) Providing HIGH QUALITY stuff.
I've seen too many screen captures and bad scans! This is the right place for top quality pictures and sounds of TLK. Some complain that my pictures are too large. My reply is very easy: Low quality stuff is hard to overlook, there's too much of it. My pages might be big to load with all the thumbnails, but isn't it worse to download a huge picture without knowing what's on it at all? Now, that would really be a reason to complain. Besides, the average 'onliner' has at least a 28.8 modem, so my pages aren't THAT shamelessly big.

3.) Bringing people together.
That's what my Fan Map- and Fandom pages were made for. WHERE are fans? WHO are they? HOW to get in touch with them?

4.) I want to make a homepage that is worth to be looked at, that's appealing and that has a personal touch.
This is the ONLY way to be something special in the shere mass of pages on the data highway. This also means I have to do it all on my own and not go around 'stealing' backgrounds here and there.
