Haven is a retreat from most things in life. It helps to encourage website, literary, and communication arts growth in not only the contributors, but also the visitors to the site.
Layout and Design
Past - In the
past, Haven has had a very dour look - the main color pallet being gray, white,
blue, eggplant, dark jade, and black. It was all table-based, to be
friendly towards browsers that can not handle frames.
Present - I like to think that Haven's look has brightened a bit, with the big sunset on the home page and new color pallet. It has less in the way of "clutter graphics", making it quicker to load, and more "feng shui".
Future - Hopefully, Haven will be re designed with two CSS - coffee (frames) and tea (no frames). These will have not only original graphics, but be all around nicer.
"Being the webmaster of a site is like having a child - not only have you created it with much love and care, but it continues to grow and evolve with even more love and devotion then one put in at the initial creation."
That said, I have been the webmaster for this site every since it opened in late 2004. I would love to see it grow even more then it already has, even though I have neglected my "child" from time to time.
Please e-mail the webmaster with any questions, comments, concerns, suggestions, etc. Thank you.
