Major Collective Restructuring

Nightbringer – My fanlistings collective, Shimmer, has been closed and merged with Nightbringer! I did this for several reasons:

  • One collective is easier to update and manage than two.
  • Many of my fanlistings are also shrines, and vice versa, so the two collectives were a little redundant.
  • I want to be able to interact with all of my visitors, no matter which of my sites they visit, in one central place. Nightbringer is my home on the web, and the launchpad of all of my fandom-related websites — my shrines, my fanlistings, and my projects that sit somewhere in the middle.

Check out the revamped Domain page for more information.

With this merge, fanlistings collective affiliates have been added to the Linkage, and a 75×50 banner has been created for fanlistings collectives to link back to Nightbringer. If you were affiliated with Shimmer, please change your link to Nightbringer. Thank you!

Site type is now listed with each of my larger sites (Character Shrine, or Character Shrine & Fanlisting, for example). Sites that are more fanlisting than shrine are linked with icons under a special Fanlistings header on the sites pages. Some sites listed under Fanlistings currently will eventually be expanded and linked above with my shrines. Some I’m content remaining just fanlistings. 🙂

Fanlistings not currently linked are in limbo: some are in the process of being adopted out, and others will likely be closed. The fanlistings listed at Nightbringer are the ones I intend to keep and continue working on. For those interested, here is the list of fanlistings currently in limbo (If you are interested in any of these, please shoot me an e-mail!):

  • Animorphs
  • Bravely Default
  • Courteney Cox, actress (Adopted!)
  • Koopalings from Super Mario Bros.
  • Shawn Ashmore, actor
  • The Sixth Sense, film

Shimmer’s old subdomain is now being used as a Fanlistings Joined page. I will be removing the link to Shimmer from my fanlistings in the coming days.

I hope these changes make sense to you. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me via e-mail or by signing my network’s chatbox on Nightbringer’s main page. Thanks everyone who has signed it so far! I love hearing from you all.

Minor Coding Updates

Somewhere Only We Know – Minor updates have been applied to the CSS. Font size is larger, and the content width is wider. The site should be more readable.

Forget Me Not – The changes made to my Sabin shrine have also been applied to my Kara shrine. The content is much more readable. My boyfriend and I have just made it through Season 3 in Battlestar Galactica. Several new articles for this site are in the works. Keep your eyes peeled!

New Collective Layout!

Nightbringer – New layout featuring Chrom from Fire Emblem: Heroes! This layout was made in conjunction with Samantha who used Lucina in hers, because making matching layouts is fun, and I needed the motivation and inspiration. Samantha is a great friend of mine, and her layouts are stunning, so definitely be sure to check hers out when you leave here.

The web needs more Fire Emblem.

Fanlistings Updates

Shimmer – I am currently in the process of cleaning up and cleaning out my fanlistings. This is the first of several updates to come.

The following fanlistings are up for adoption. If you are interested, please shoot me an e-mail.

Shoot For the Stars, the Super Mario 64 fanlisting has been moved to my fanlistings subdomain.

Soaring, the Great White Sharks fanlisting and World in Awe, the fanlisting for director, writer, and actor M. Night Shyamalan, have been closed.

Fanlistings affiliates on A Murder of Crows have been cleaned out and updated.

Updates Log

Night All Around – Night All Around, my previous pre-shrine blog, has been repurposed into an updates log for all of my sites across The Nightbringer Network. A pre-shrine blog suited my needs when I had less time to work on shrines and wanted shrines to develop slowly and naturally, but now that I have more time to devote to my sites, it sat largely unused. I have been wanting to streamline my sites’ updates so that updates can be found in one place for some time now. As I update each site, updates will be available to be browsed by site. Updates entries here will be plugged on my network’s Updates Twitter.

A Murder of Crows – The Links section has been revamped! Dead links have been removed and new links have been added.

Nightbringer – The Affiliates and Links sections have been cleaned out! I am accepting link exchanges! If I overlooked your collective, and you’d like to be linked, please feel free to hit me up!
