- EVEN MORE BEHIND THE SCENES: Along with the changes to the watermarking process, experiments are underway to
make all of Rollsign Gallery's web pages more smart phone friendly. These changes should help eliminate such issues
as formatting errors and overlapping text on various pages. The pages added or updated on January 1st have some of
the experiments applied to them. If there are any issues that still occur on these new pages, feel free to send me a
screen capture of the error(s) so they can be dealt with. THANK YOU!
