Site updates from April to June 2002

18 June 2002

I'm sooo tired... I'm so tired I keep getting the date wrong, so please excuse any mistakes in the archives. This update is the fruit of 4 days straight of programming. Four days. That's how long it took for us to track down all the information, fics, and then archive them. I-am-very-tired. I should be studying for exams this Friday :(

In difference to my sore eyes, here's the short list (sort of) of what's been changed around the site:

We've expanded the glossary, so it's now more - complete. As it should be :)

Re-vamped the Bookshelf; it has a completely different look (Kuja from FF9, because Eilis knows how to nag. She loves that game.) now, and I think it's an improvement. Not really sure yet, we'll see how things go. Added a demented FAQ you can get to through the 'contact' page in the Bookshelf. Not sure why we made it, though.

Created the new HP sub-archive, Gramarye (took two goes, but got there). Very mixed feelings from the staff over everything to do with this archive: the name, the look, the colours... but it's done. And that's what counts :)

Directly linked the the creation of the new Harry Potter archive are the new HP banners for the site... is this worth mentioning? I dunno, but since it required some effort on my part, I thought, why not.

Updated K-chan's contact info for kiribans - correct email now. Very sorry about this - she keeps having to change her email due to reasons out of her control.

I've revised/expanded the submission guidelines for NS - 3 new submission methods available. Go read about it and all the details here. The point is to make it easier for you guys. Not me, this just complicated my life by a factor I do not want to think about.

We have updated Mage, K, and Eilis's profiles. Not very interesting news, huh?

Revised the index page of the Garden - looks a bit better now.

Added HP theme songs, accessible currently from the index/update page of Gramarye. In serious need of input, I seem fixated on FF8.

Added tons (and I mean it) of new quotes to the archive, and moved old ones into their pages. Or something. Yeah. But they're all pretty good, I think.

Now for the important stuff: due to the sheer size of the fic update this month (100+ fics), I've decided that from now on, to look at the fic updates for the Sensus Fanfiction Archive, you actually have to go to the Bookshelf. It's easy, just get past the warning, and go to the updates. Trust me, it's well worth your time. If you're on the ML, I list 'em all. It's a bit crazy.


22 April 2002

Mostly a fic update today - we're working on a new template for the site, but that requires Photoshop - which hasn't been moved to the new comp yet, and effort while we figure out what it should look like. In the links section, we have two new links: the first to one of our new author's site - HTH, as well as a link to a new fanfiction/fanart page, The Seme-Seme Club. Changed a few things in the Fushigi Yuugi section - nothing to go crazy over, just a few aesthetic adjustments.

New mini-section in the Special Directory: didn't feel like doing any 'school type' work the other day, so I started working on wallpapers. So far we've got two Harry Potter Snape themed ones - both made with Dee's artwork; they both have the same general idea, just different background colors ::shrug:: Couldn't decide which one to go with, so just put them both up. So far they're only for 800x600, but I'm working on bigger screen sizes.

On another note, I've lost a whole bunch of site-related files somewhere on my computer. It's really annoying &_&

5 April 2002

First update for the month - on over a month. Gomen. >.< New links to Bishonenink added, some revisions to staff profiles (I think it was K-chan), and I've taken the [status] tag out of all the fics which are already complete - to reduce file size. Or whatnot. Oh, and I changed the font face in all the sub-archives. Verdana's much prettier. Major major fic update today - sorry about the wait. Remember, if you actually go into the Bookshelf, the new and updated fics are all linked in the Bookshelf updates ^_~

On a completely different note, the Noire Sensus Forum is up, all thanks to Dee - I didn't even know the staff wanted a forum. Go join, have a looksee, or do whatever you like; we promise not to bite ^_^
