We need to reach a wider audience!

While the API has had 510,148 unique visitors in the last month, the site itself only received 4,821 unique visitors, most people dont even realise that fanart.tv exists and that is where they are getting their images from,

The aim is to get more people involved with the site, and hopefully increasing the image contributions, to that end, please tell your friends about the site, tweet about us, digg us, mention us on your blogs, stumbleupon us, google +1 us, like our facebook page, most of these can be done from the home page.

Another option is to email places like lifehacker and suggest they do an article about us, we need all the help we can get to let people know about the site.

Something old

Ah, the age old (internet wise at any rate) problem of spam.

We had some spam on the site for the first time a couple of weeks ago, we have put some systems in place to hopefully block it, but let us know if you get any.

Something new

Due to popular request we have finally added artist thumbs at 1000x1000px to the music section.

We also have a forum thread where people can make requests for new image types

Also due to popular request you have have noticed you can now browse by alphabet letter in the Music, TV and Movie sections, so if you aren’t sure what you are looking for feel free to have a nose.

Something borrowed

Martijn, the creator of the great XBMC plugin Artwork Downloader, XBMC Team member, and also admin here, has kindly added some python examples to the Movie API page and the TV API page

Something blue

Probably not a category we will be adding but the suggestion brought a smile to my face anyway http://fanart.tv/topic/new-image-types/page/2/#post-927 thanks @jacktyler
