I see what you are saying. That is one of the problems that I have with the picture right now. They are animated gifs, so the go in a continuous cycle. I also can't control where they start when you see it. So what happened was when you finally saw the gif, it had cycled to the start of VILLAGE and not FROST. So the SW is correct in the timing and in you case the signing was not. :-)

The picture that shows us has


If SW is read top to bottom then what you have is 


and what you sign is

I am not sure what you are refering to. Is it the writing itself or the picture that shows up that you are saying has a problem with the timing? 
But be advised that this page is a work in progress. I am making improvements as I can. (There are somethings that I know are not right as of now.)

The only difficulty I have is that the SW for Frost Village seems to not follow the rule of time order in whether something is top or bottom.  There are two signs combined, one in which the flat hands are out from the signer and one in which the signs are for house.  

I would write them with the House sign at the top as that is the first sign in time.

Everyone -
Look at Adam's newly designed web site.... It is a work in progress, 
and the progress is really exciting...

When you visit this web page:

Take your mouse, and place it gently over the SignWriting...

A video pops up showing you the sign in ASL that is written there...

It is really a brilliant idea, Adam, and I know this will become an 
important way to teach SignWriting too...

Try it everyone!
