Jewel Staite's Offical Site is now open.

Who designed the site? Kaylee?
You say that like it were a bad thing.
I think its really cute. Jewel's the best :)
You say that like it were a bad thing.

Yes.
I like it as well.
No. No no no no. I made the mistake of reading the comments, and yep, the first one I see is somebody saying she looks hotter covered in grease.

Oh, and um, this website sparkles with me. Can I move to add it to this week's List?
I like the site, it's quirky and has warmth (which is more than can be said for other official actors websites out there).
Well, it's quite ... pink. I like the design though, especially the Gallery, works nicely

(and the Jewel as - kind of - faerie photo is sweet)

My nose is bothering me now though, what List ? It must be important if it gets its own capital letter.
Hmm, Italian Kitchen (mentioned in her myspace blog) is across the street from my office. I'll have to stake^H^H^H^H^H check it out.
Heh, I haven't liked websites since before they invented CSS - the death of readability on the web.
I agree with you, Saje and Simon. The frilly, pinky, girly vibe suits her.
It's pretty and it's got yummy permalinks, proper titles and the code almost validates. Good job. It doesn't look like someone's official website, so I'm not sure if it's the best choice professionally, but still... what Simon said.
Saje: "My nose is bothering me now though, what List ? It must be important if it gets its own capital letter."

We'd better fix that nose twitch, then ; > - I'm referring to this recent season finale of South Park entitled "The List" which had lots of pink and unicorns and rainbows and stuff, and in which various items both sparkled and pleased the girlie inhabitants of South Park.

It's truly the first thing that came to mind when I saw Jewel's site. Not my preference at all, very jewel-y, sparkly and Kaylee-ish - but if it works for her, then chacun a son goût, as my people say.
I can't open it, but could some bright-yellow moderator change the headline to "official."
I like it. Because it's pretty? Because it's pretty.

Used properly, css does nothing more than speed things up in every sense of the word. It doesn't kill readability or usablility, bad design does that. Flash is the real bane of usability and readability. The photos are a bit airbrushy for my tastes, but its nicely done and uses WordPress, two things which I support.
Okay, is there some trick to the gallery. For example, Serenity says 9 photos. I click on Serenity and nothing. I click on pic and nothing.

Did you notice under Store:

Stay tuned for Jewel’s calendar for 2008 as well as auto- graphed posters, headshots and more!

Aha. And in this way, Saje was enlightened, ta QG ;).

(and, for old times sake, "Oh my God, they killed Kenny !" ;)
Oh, this is great! I love Jewel with all my soul, so happy she has her own site now. Just a charming person.
Saje, so funny you mentioned that. We used that term, "We killed Kenny!" as a code we were having major issues and needed help. Kinda' gives me a smile to see it used again:)
Won't work for me. I get a wordpress error.

Truer words were never written. Now if only we could convince the new generation of web designers of that...

As for Jewel's site, I like it. It fits her personality.
