Re: Opening speeches

Do you write this part before or after the rest of the content, or at the same time? Before because I always put this sentence in Photoshop when I make the design so that I know how to style it beforehand (and it sometimes changes in the end). It's a good guide though! THIS IS ACTUALLY THE MOST EXC...

Re: What are you playing?

Vii - yeah, I guess it is more geared to kids, but the concept of the game itself is interesting and some elements are interesting. My favorites were Jazz, Viola and Falsetto. I had wanted to like Polka more considering how tragic she is and all but...nope. I just couldn't like her D: Have you playe...

Re: The first step is admitting you have a problem.

All characters will have enormous necks for improved headbanging potential. Headbanging will be used as currency, as a tool and as language. Hair that's shorter than an entire back will be outlawed. Bald people will be given a donation of hair from the hairiest members of society.

Re: What are you playing?

Eternal Sonata!
What do you think about it?

I thought it had a lot of limitations gameplay-wise (repetitive like hell) but that it had some very good ideas plot-wise and some nice characters!

Who are your favorites?

Re: The first step is admitting you have a problem.

I'm glad to see you here!!

Oh, you and your shoes. Don't worry. Being your twin, I'll make up for your obsession by only owning one pair all year long. I swear, you'd probably have a stroke if you had to look in my wardrobe. You can be my girly twin and headbang forever.

Re: Opening speeches

I try to word each one differently, as I expect my sites will sometimes be visited all together if someone is viewing my collective, and it'd be odd if they all sound the same. Huh, I had never thought about that. I do try to phrase them differently through different sites, but just to avoid repeat...

Opening speeches

With splash pages not existing anymore, it has become common practice to put some sort of welcome message as the first thing your visitors will read on your site. So: what do you write on the first page of a fansite? Do you have consistent patterns across all of your sites? How do you phrase this we...

Re: What makes a shrine a shrine?

Sorry for double-posting but I just thought this deserved a long reply too: I think shrines back in the day were a way for people to connect with each other using interests they had in common. These days, we have things like facebook and twitter, so connecting through a shrine is less common. I thin...

Re: What makes a shrine a shrine?

Oh, this thread is so going to turn into an in-joke... :P I guess a fansite can be any site that's devoted to someone else's creation, though the definition might be even wider than that. A good one, though...I guess it is that magic appeal of those sites that invite you to read more. In these days ...

Re: What are you playing?

In these days I've been playing a lot of Age of Empires II. One of my favorite games ever. :D
(and, sadly, not one you can really build a fansite for. it would be a fansite for...actual history?!)
