|Hello, guest! I'm Kitty, and you've stumbled across Ultima! My goal is to provide you with graphics and resources, as well as with any requests that you might have. I take requests for buttons, glitters, banners, and mood indicators. I have one serious rule: do not steal. I spend a lot of time on these, and you don't need to steal them. Go ahead, take a look around. I'm sure you'll find something you enjoy. And if not, why not request it? If I like it enough, I might even add it to the site for others to enjoy!||
Wednesday, July 20, 2011+2 Requests
Back from another semi-hiatus
Wow, I'm horrible at updating this summer! Normally, summer is the time that I get the most done with my sites, but apparently this summer is different. Not only do I have five (difficult) books to read for school (plus one essay, sixteen workbook pages, and a fill-in-the-blank type-thing), but I'm also volunteering at the library & my youth group is doing a TON of stuff. So I may be inactive a bit this summer. So sorry.
Anyways, I've finished two requests. One has been up since July 3. I'm really late on that one, and I apologize. Oops.
Sunday, July 10, 2011Kitty is back from Hiatus!
Fail Kitty is fail. I sincerely apologize for the lack of updates. I was gone from June 26 - July 2 for summer camp in South Mississippi, and then as soon as I got back - the next day - my father told me that we would be going on a family vacation to Tennessee. I had a great time, but unfortunately I was unable to update my sites (or even tell anyone that I was away!) while I was gone. You don't have to worry, though. I'm back, and will be updating as soon as I possibly can.
First things first, I have one button request to complete for BoardPaint (they sent it in while I was away; Fail Kitty forgot to close requests before she went to camp), then I have a few banner ideas that I'll have to mess around with.
I'm sincerely hoping to get Ultima back up and running to its full potential before I have to take a break for my Senior Year. I'm going to busting my behind in order to keep my grades up this year, so I might not be on as often as I should. I'm even contemplating just shutting Ultima down. It's not as entertaining as it used to be. Maybe a week of intense graphic-making will be good for me.
All that remains is for GIMP to unfreeze. It froze right in the middle of the button request - thank goodness I had saved it before messing around further. I simply tried to change the font color...and it's frozen. I might have to restart my computer to get it restarted. But no worries.
Thank you all for sticking with me. I sincerely hope this will go well.
Saturday, June 25, 2011ULTIMA WILL BE ON HIATUS UNTIL JULY 2, 2011.
Wow, Kitty fails. It's been two weeks since I've updated, and now my only update is that I'll be on hiatus for a week!
Here's the reason: Summer camp. I'll be rebuilding a community that's still in despair from Hurricane Katrina, then going to New Orleans. I'll be back very soon, and I'll bring a bunch of new content with me, I promise!
Saturday, June 11, 2011Well, that's over with. Ultima didn't place in Genericizing's SOTM, but I did participate! So a new award has been added to the "Sitely" section for you to take a gander at.
Monday, June 6, 2011Vote for me @ Genericizing?
+1 Icon Request
Someone requested an icon of Riza, which is a character in an anime/manga series.
On another note, mind sparing a vote for me at Genericizing? It would really show your appreciation for Ultima! I'm counting on you, denizens of Neopia!
Friday, June 3, 2011Vote for me @ Genericizing?
Listed @ Smiley Central
Listed @ Starcross
I was listed at two different sites today, Smiley Central & Starcross. They're both directories (of course).
I'll probably spend most of the day creating awards for my review site because I deleted the old ones that I had. Expect new graphics for Ultima by the end of next week.
In other news, Ocarina of Time 3D (for the 3DS, of course) comes out on June 19. Be warned: if I get this game, Ultima might be put on the backburner for a while. I love me some Zelda!
Thursday, June 2, 2011Vote for me @ Genericizing?
Listed as "recommended" @ The Faerie Compass
Listed as "recommended" @ Android Directory
So I went on a directory-check today, and much to my surprise (and delight!), Ultima has been listed as "recommended" on two of the directories it is listed at! I'm really happy about this; probably more than I should be.
I tried to make more graphics today, but without any of my stuff from my old GIMP program, I ran into walls and I couldn't find any of the old stuff online so I could put it on my new program. I apologize. I hope to be able to be back to full capacity by August, more-than-likely by the end of June. Over & out!
Wednesday, June 1, 2011+1 Button Request
Vote for me @ Genericizing?
Requests are OPEN! To prove this, I filled one button request today!
In other news, would you please spare a vote for me at Genericizing? I would love you forever! No, really. Vote for me because I have an awesome site!
Monday, May 30, 2011Listed @ The Faerie Compass
I've finally redownloaded GIMP! Thank goodness! Everything's going to be okay. Requests are still closed, so don't get too excited. I'm going to work on making sure my graphic skills are where I want them before I open those requests back up again.
In other news, I reopened Siren's Song Reviews, so if you need a review for your site, don't be afraid to ask! I really want to start reviewing again!
Other than that, though, I am pleased to announce that Ultima has another affiliate, Shine, a graphics site by Rabbit! Ultima was also listed on The Faerie Compass.
Sad news: I had to shut down my directory. You can read why here. Thank you for supporting me.
Saturday, May 28, 2011Listed @ Android Directory
So I've been listed at Android Directory. I'm listed there as a recommended site. That really makes me happy.
Remember to spare a vote for your favorite graphics site! *pokes button up above*
Friday, May 27, 2011Kitty's out of school!
Applied to be listed @ Android Directory
Yes, you heard correctly. Kitty's out of school and she's got the whole summer ahead of her! I'm going to work my hardest to get Ultima back to being SUPER-ACTIVE again. I'm talking like three or four new icons PER HOUR.
Okay, so maybe not that active. A couple of new icons per day, one or two resources a week, that kind of stuff. It's going to take a lot of hard work. I've gotten lazy over the past few months. But don't worry; Ultima's going to be back, and I'll be better than ever. Prepare for the awesomeness to come!
Tuesday, May 24, 2011Still waiting on computer hard drive.
Yeah, yeah. I'm a horrible person, I don't know what I'm doing, blah, blah, blah. There's the small fact that it'll cost $100 to get my old computer's hard drive back that had all of my brushes/fonts/textures/etc. on it. So, I suppose I'll just go ahead and download GIMP and do some basic things while I wait. I'm sorry for the delay. I'll try to get my hard drive back as soon as possible, but there's the small fact that the old computer was a family computer, and Dad says we have to wait 'til he has an extra $100 to spare on the computer. I just want my graphic program back!
Sunday, May 22, 2011Looking for a sister site!
Yeah, there's been a few issues the past few weeks. Namely, the computer's been going haywire, but don't worry. Very soon, Ultima will be up and running better than ever before! I simply have to redownload GIMP and find all my brushes and fonts again. There's the small matter of obtaining my old computer's settings before I can do this, but that shouldn't take long.
I sincerely apologize for everything that's happened the past few weeks. Stick with me, and I promise, everything will be okay.
Edit, 4:20 p.m. I entered Genericizing's SOTM competition. Help a site get back on its feet and vote for me? :)
Friday, May 13, 2011KITTY GOT A NEW COMPUTER!
I have lost ALL of my brushes, fonts, and textures.
I got a new computer today, and I have not had the time to work on getting everything back up and running. So I apologize in advance for the fact that there won't be very many updates in the next week or so. REQUESTS ARE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. Please, please, please bear with me. I'm so very sorry about this!
Saturday, May 7, 2011Keep on Keeping on
Things aren't quite as awful as they were - I mean, the computer hasn't shut off in a while, but I haven't tried to open up GIMP in a few weeks. Now that we're not doing anything in school, I'll have a lot more time to focus on my graphics site. I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience. Oh, and if you want to, graphic requests are open. I'll try to get to them within a week :) Thanks for understanding!
Friday, April 29, 2011EXTENDED HIATUS?!
Well, my computer's all messed up. I'm hoping to get back online sometime before school lets out. I know I've been gone for a while.
KEEP LOOKING FOR UPDATES!
That's all I have to tell you for now. If you need more information, please neomail me. Go to
