The final update - sad to say goodbye
It started as a pet project, right after the birth of the internet. Watching Full House growing up there was suddenly a new way to connect with other fans, sharing pictures and geeking out. Long time has passed since I saved first .html files to floppy discs, frustrated at how few pictures fit on 1.4MB, hehe. This site was my first experience with coding, html and php and it inspired me to explore photoshop. Throughout my teenage years I spent a lot of time learning new scripts, making digital art work, creating quiz awards and connecting with other fans from all over the world. Tanner Central grew, I was proud of myself and what I had accomplished. I created the interactive quizzes and other fan sites started adopting my style. Not bad for a young girl from the arctic north.
As I finished high school, started working and planned my immigration wedding things changed. I guess it's only natural. You can only fangirl for so long. Quite a few of the people I knew in the online community from the early 2000s left at this point. It had been 20 years since Full House started and more than 10 years since it ended. The actors had moved on to new and successful projects. It was time to let go.
Don't get me wrong, Full House is still in my heart. Website design is as well. Letting go of something is often necessary to embrace and enjoy new things. The final decision to close was made over time because it was not an easy one. It would have been really cool to keep going until the 10th anniversary in 2013. Realistically that it's not doable. I still see activity on the site, which makes me happy, and I therefore plan on keeping it online as it is for as long as I keep this domain. I am shutting down he forum as it didn't bloom as expected. The guestbook is still available.
I want to send a big Thank You to my followers over the past 8 years. You guys are awesome and have put a smile on my face so many times! To my site affiliates, fan work submitters and fellow Full House webmasters - Thank you for showing interest in my site. To Doug Fowler, Jane and Paul - Thank you for the great cooperation we have had over the past years. I really appreciate it.
Take care my friends. Live, learn, love. Be happy :=)

Fixing stuff update
I did some cleanup on the forum after a couple of spammers had fun over there. They are now banned.
- I added one new Affiliate and did a link check to remove any dead sites. If your site has moved and your link is missing please contact me. I'll be doing another link check soon in the Links department.
- I added the fanquotes that have been pending in my mailbox, and I removed the link to my old screencaps since they do no longer exist and the mailinglist.
- I updated the Webmistress info as it was outdated.
- I cleaned up and embedded the Guestbook to make it more accessible. I decided to moderate new entries to avoid spam.
Tanner Central's 6th anniversary was last June. I did remember it but found no time to do anything special.

I've been fiddling around with this one for quite a while, not liking it enough to show it to the world. I feel that something is missing in it. But I am not going to find the answer so I might as well use it until I have a new idea.

The future of Tanner Central
As you have noticed there has been a severe lack of updates in the past year or two. The reasons for this are many - moving to my own apartment and getting married takes up a lot of time, and as we all know people lose interest in things as time goes on. I started this web site 6 years ago, and things are not the same as they were then. Both me and the people visiting the site has changed a lot. Full House itself ended almost 14 years ago, the actors has moved on and so has the audience.
The site will still remain open for a long time. There might not be amy new content posted, but I will keep maintaining the site as I enjoy the technical part of making websites. I have a new layout half done, but I am such a perfectionist and didn't feel it was pretty enough to be shown off yet.
In the fall of 2009 I will move and husband and I will start university, which either means more time to be online, or less time, we are not sure yet.
I have not yet decided whether to keep the forum or not, as it never really took off and the activity level is very low.
The site is still my beloved baby and I think about it often. I am truly sorry things have come to this.

I have disabled some of the forms due to HUGE amounts of spam emails. If you want to reach me please email me instead. I still do not have internet at home, but it will hopefully change soon so I can start working on some updates.

Tanner Central 5 year anniversary
On june 8th Tanner Central had its 5th anniversary. Sadly I am in the middle of moving and I won't have time (or internet connection) to do anything until july. I am still waiting for my internet to be connected (2 weeks overdue) and I also have international visitors to show my country to.
In the meantime we should enjoy the sun, celebrate summer break and graduation (for those who finish school this year) and leave the internet alone for a while, haha.

We are nearing the 5 year mark...
Hello. It has now been almost 5 years since Tanner Central saw the light of day.
For the occasion I am going to show the site some love. Today I did a link check and all the dead links are now removed. This includes the affiliates. If you are an affiliate of mine and your site has moved, please let me know and I will add you with the correct URL.
There will be a new layout up soon, as well as other goodies.

Finally an update!
I am back from the dead, hehe. I got married in September and my husband moved here to live with me - craziness. Life is slowly returning to normal (what is normal?)
I have added one affiliate, updated the FH on DVD page, updated Jodie's bio (because as you know she got married in July and is pregnant! Congratulations Jodie.)
I have had some problems where my computer decides to eat my emails, so if you are not FH4ever and want to become an affiliate please resend the application as I have lost it. I have also started receiving tons of spam, so I need to change my form email system soon.
Anyone noticed anything on the site that has mysteriously died please let me know so I can fix it:=)

I uploaded the cover art for the 8th season on DVD and the complete set, scheduled to be released on November 6th. I also added the news about Jodie and her July wedding!
