Talking with this old friend of mine has brought back many memories. I remember when I first created these World Wide Web pages, so many years ago. I remember why it was called The Power Rangers WWW Homepage, because way back when these pages were first created, the site was really one big main page. It was a time before Netscape Enhancements, there were no background images or colors, and frames were but a dream. I remember when the documents section of the site consisted of three documents, The Power Ranger FAQ and The Power Ranger Episiode Guide by Terri Ann Guingab and The Power Rangers Toy List by Pamela Green. I remember searching out these documents on hard to find FTP sites, long before WWW search engines were popular. There was no need for a links section, because at the time, this was the only Power Ranger site I knew existed.
I created this site, because at the time there was no place on the Web where Power Rangers' fans could find images and information easily. I remember reading on the Power Rangers newsgroup, alt.fan.power-rangers , that some people were looking for A Power Rangers Web page. I searched for one and could not find one, so that next day I made my own. Several months after making the page, I discovered a Power Rangers page made by Eric Olson. It is a good thing that I discovered this page so late, as one reason I created the page was to fill a hole that existed in the Web, a very important hole to me. Now, there are so many Power Ranger pages, one can hardly even count them. Don't get me wrong, this is a good thing. Many of these pages provide things that these pages can not offer, and a person searching the web should have as many resources available as possible.
This brings me to a side issue that I would like to discuss about the Web. The Web is a great source of FREE information, which is one reason why I love it so much, but all this information must be used with a sense of etiquette. If you plan on using an image or document from this or any other site, you should ask the site owner. I'm not talking about making a personal homepage, for yourself, and adding a Power Ranger picture by a description on how much you love the Power Rangers. What I am talking about is, taking something that someone spent time on designing, writing, digitizing, etc. without asking and trying to pass it off as your own. Since this site has been up, I have encoutered people who have reworded documents and then tried to claim that they were their own, I have seen sites that consisted of nothing more then images and information from this and other sites, I have even been accused of using images, that I digitized myself, without asking! Before I use any image from any other site I try to ask first. If you wish to use anything from this site, please ask, chances are I'll say yes :-)
Well, these are just things that I have been thinking about, which is really what this space is for. Oh, I guess there Is one more thing I should mention about information from this site. Many people ask me if it is alright to add a link to it. To this question you can always consider my answer a yes. In fact why not use the Morphing Grid logo. Just use the following html code:
width=90 height=70 alt="MG">The Morphing Grid</A>
Which should look like this:
The Morphing Grid
Finally, I would like to close this message with some of the images that I have designed for this site over the past few years, I hope you enjoy them

Within a few short days I was contacted by a member of the Saban Interactive Department. Through his help, I was put in contact with the head of the Legal and Interactive Departments at Saban Entertainment. After a brief discussion I was allowed to put the site back up.
