Ishida Uryuu, *Hakanai.net, Christopher Nolan, Good Tidings, Pastel Colours

Got approved for this subject a couple of days ago, but it’s been a wishlister of mine for like forever so I set to work on it quickly, and now it’s ready for release! Please join Delicately Soothing, the fanlisting for pastel colours! (And yes I’ve adopted the British spelling just because it looks cooler)

I also added new affiliates for Christopher Nolan (Inception and Arthur+Eames) and Ishida Uryuu (Muramasa). Incidentally, it was Uryuu’s character birthday yesterday. ^^; Also added the new FL owned icons for Hakanai.net!

Lastly, some new updates for Good Tidings: a new 100×50 code, some new guidelines regarding finished layouts, and sent the thank-you finished icons for Rhys and Laurie. ♥

The other day, I set up the information page for Good Tidings, the 2019 Holiday Layout Marathon I’m hosting (and I’ve added Rhys and Lene as participants):

Sign-ups close Dec. 1, 2019. Come join! ☆

In other news, I’ve updated the index page of Ainna.me to add a more functional/informative menu. I am also officially launching /PULSE, my mostly-RL microlog.

It seems like a really manic energy took over and I was able to finish Scented, my homage to the popular 90’s web clique, Scented Angels. 。.:☆*:・’(*⌒―⌒*))) I really wanted to revive this clique because I still want to use it on my domain splash page, but since I had no way of contacting the creator (Tira)—as it has been two decades since the site was closed—I thought it would be fitting to put up a tribute instead. I suppose visiting Robin’s The Nostalgia Project gave me the necessary push to finally get this done! ^.^ Art is by Yuumei, used under her nonprofit license.

*Northstar.nu, Dog-Eared, Ishida Uryuu, Scented

Hit by a sudden flash of inspiration, so I started work on yet another a new site. (⌒▽⌒)☆ Done with the initial phase of the layout; coding is to come next. Just have to write a little content and then we’re good to go~

In other news, I finally got around to adding icons to my sites at Northstar.nu. ^^;; Also tweaked the CSS there a bit more, until I’m finally happy with how the content is rendered on the page (especially with the “About,” “Design,” and “Projects” sections).

More housekeeping:

  1. /log: Fixed the CSS so the entry backgrounds now have rounded corners, edited the .htaccess (with help from Lys, as ever! ♥) to drop the PHP extension in my files, and finally got around to adding a to-do section
  2. Ishida Uryuu: Decided to go with a fixed top nav, hopefully it looks better!), and added a new affiliate, Rukia
  3. Dog-Eared: Made the content into an iFrame so it aligns better with the header image, but now I seem to be regretting the two-column layout decision since the site is so text-heavy >_< This design really works better for smaller sites with little content. So I may have to change the layout soon, no matter how much I like the current Kuroko+Nigou one(个_个)

*Northstar.nu, Project Clique, Sheldon Cooper, *Hakanai.net, Christopher Nolan, Ephemeral

Here’s what I’ve been up to yesterday and most of today:

  1. New layout for the main domain, ft. Ichigo Kurosaki (fanart by Sideburn004, used with permission). I had problems with the viewability of the last layout, so I had to change it. Too bad it lasted only ten days.
  2. Reverted to the early version of the Contact page, because all the other scripts I tried just wouldn’t work to my liking Now it’s back to Minako, with a few CSS tweaks ♥
  3. New links added to the Exits page of /log
  4. New affiliate added to Project Clique (The Docket) + cleaned up links
  5. New members and affiliates (The Docket, Beautiful Mind, and List-Me.com) added to Ephemeral
  6. New affiliate added to Hakanai.net (Laura)
  7. New affiliate (Alfred Hitchcock) added to Christopher Nolan
  8. Slight CSS tweaks to the members’ list were made on Sheldon Cooper

Ishida Uryuu

I spent most of yesterday designing and coding a new layout for ARROWS OF LIGHT because I could no longer take the rushed ugliness of the first one. xD As with Tony, I initially wanted to have a two-column layout, but it wasn’t working for me so I decided to just roll with this one-column result. (Really liked how the header turned out, btw; again, I made the blend and textures myself from stock photos, augmented by So-Ghislaine’s. It may not look like much, but I am at least pleased with how it looks!)

New codes were added, too—both my own and the rest of Estefania’s codes, which she kindly donated last April when she passed on the members’ list to me. ♥ Also added a few affiliates to the site: Shinji & Aizen, Ichigo & Zaraki, Byakuya & Rukia, and Gin.

Voltron: Legendary Defender, Project Clique, VLD: Keith, VLD: Pidge, *Hakanai.net

Working on a new layout for one of my FLs today! But in between I squeezed in a few minor site tweaks:

  1. New affiliates for Nolan (Dunkirk) and Tony Stark (Iron Man)
  2. New affiliate (Lotor) for VLD, Keith, and Pidge (+minor content tweaks for Keith and Pidge)
  3. New member for Project Cliques (Sheroes)

I also went on a joining spree—it’s practically a must when I’ve revamped an FL and am looking for affiliates; I found myself going to so many other sites I did not initially intend to visit and ended up joining. xD Hence, my joined page at Hakanai is pretty well-fed ^^;

*Northstar.nu, *Hakanai.net, Ephemeral

Ephemeral // Fanlisting Collective Directory So I had another niche directory idea and ran away with it. xD This time, it’s for fanlisting collectives. I thought it would be a good idea to connect all active FL collective owners since we’re basically a dying breed by now. If you run one, please join Ephemeral!

As an aside, this was probably the fastest layout I made. (Design- and coding-wise, everything just seemed to come together.) Fanart features Hotaru Tomoe by Pillara, used with permission.

On another note, I made some minor CSS tweaks and edited the “About” and “Exits” pages (added new links) for this update log, and added a Closed FLs section to Hakanai.net. The latter is meant for new FL owners who applied and got approved for these subjects at TFL or TAFL—they can contact me for the old members’ lists. ♥

Tony/Pepper, Codename wa Sailor V, Shoujo, Tony Stark, Elementary

  1. New link for Elementary: Joan Watson
  2. Intra-network affiliate exchange: Shoujo with Sailor V, and Tony with Tony/Pepper

24 October 2019
Tony/Pepper, Project Clique, Mr. & Mrs. X, Tony Stark, Elementary

Had about three different versions of this layout before I went with this one; I was actually going in a completely different direction with it, but decided to stick with a simple one-column layout instead (ft. fanart by the talented Hallpen, used with permission). I also just received the members list from Deborah and now I’m ready to show the world the new Tony Stark fanlisting!

Also some minor CSS tweaks and affiliates (mostly cross-listing my other sites lol) were done to this site, to Mr. and Mrs. X, and to Tony and Pepper, and Project Clique. Minor CSS tweaks were done to Elementary.
