Some of you might know, that I had a Balto-Website, long before I created my Watership Down site.

Well, I've decided to put back my old Balto website. Currently, it's only in german (english version will come!) and some insignificant content is missing. I'm working on this, but I think, all important things are finished.

So I put the site back online. If you want, take a look  :)

You can get to the site by following this link: http://www.baltosdream.com/en/index.html

I might not be a fan of Balto (since I don't know anything about it), but right now this website looks well enough, and I'm sure it will get better with time and your work. :)

Thanks. Balto is my favorite animated movie :D And my site was the first good german fan-site (now, there are better ones - but I just wanted to put it back online).

Saw the movies a couple of days ago and the old fascination is still there :)

Changed the header, but I'm not sure, if I'm pleased with it...

Got some display errors on my tablet. On my pc, erverything's fine.  :(

Already tried another template. Because the templates are preinstalled, I can't solve the problem. Maybe, it's only my tablet.

I would be very obliged, if someone could say, if the site looks good or flawed.  :)

I don't see any errors on my PC.

I noticed you moved categories from the side to the top of the page. It looks quite good. :)

How could you know, that you are not a fan if you never watched it  ;)

Yes, I've decided to change the design.

The entrance site is also reworked and currently, I'm working on an english version of the site.

I don't know, if I would be a fan or not if I watched it. I could be, but at the moment I am not. :D

C'mon. It's a really good movie. You can even see a (tundra) hare in there :D

Hah, the hare works always  :D

Fresh from my site:

Quote from: Quote:on 
2004, this site hits the internet as a german fan-page. Now, 10 years later, I've decided to make this site international. So from today, the english version of BaltosDream.com is online!

Good work. :)

I've finally watched Balto movie from 1995. It's pretty amazing film, no doubts about that. However, I was a bit dissapointed that the tundra hare you told me about had only showed up for a few seconds and had no dialogue lines.  :p

Still a great movie though. ;)

Thanks.

But you watched the movie, so the tundra hare did his job :D I also can recommend the sequels (even when Wolfquest hasn't the best animations). Of course, they are not comparable with the first movie because of lower budget and other production team, but they are still watchable ;)
