Tidying at The Gamer’s Repose

With the help of my awesome boyfriend, I have been fixing up the HeroClix powers and abilities page on The Gamer’s Repose to reflect recent rulings changes. Check it out here: Colors on the Dial and Their Meanings

More tidying is to come, as I seek to keep the site updated. I think there are still a few more things to check on, but that will be for tomorrow. Now, I sleep. …Maybe. If I don’t get caught up in my book again and read ’til 4:00 am. LOL

Tinkering, LJ Purge, and New Possible Projects

If you logged onto WMW.org anytime between 12:00 AM and 1:00 AM EST, you might have noticed that the navigation appeared to be bouncing around all over the place. That was me, trying to get the navigation to be a little more intuitive, and royally bungling things up in the process. -_-

BUT! I did get it fixed, and now all the little leafy navigation thingies have WORDS to go with them, all the time! WHOOPEE!

Also, since my old-as-grass LJ account is no longer being used as the update journal, I purged it of its networky updates and began again. I have no clue what I’m going to use it for, but I’ll keep it around for randoms.

I updated the network page accordingly, and even spruced up the network links all around. Now, they are more descriptive in their hover text. Woot. 😀

Lastly–check out the Projects page on this little blog for some new possibilities on the horizon…CuriousLittleBird just MIGHT be making a few more new sites in the near future! 😀 😀

Two New Link-Exchanges, and Lux Perpetua Project

Hooray! Check out Ghost-Lights.org and Reflera.org, my two new link-exchanges. (On the way to add them, I realized I didn’t even HAVE a link-exchanges page yet–that got fixed in a hurry!)

Also, in the next week, I am quite hopeful that I can upload my last upcoming site, now named Lux Perpetua, about Dove II of the comic book series Hawk & Dove.

In future updates, I’ll be referring to something called the Lux Perpetua Project, which is basically me scanning in all the best images of the lady Dove from my collection of H&D comics and uploading them. (Currently, I’ve got all of the five-issue miniseries scanned in, but it will take a VERY long time to scan in everything else. If I waited till I got ALL the comic issues done, Lux Perpetua would never be uploaded!)

New Affiliates at WMW.org and Crooked Glasses!

Welcome to my newest affiliate at WMW.org: Lady Dinobug! 😀 Her lovely domain collective Rokuro.nu is a portal to all her content on the Internet–well worth checking out. Oh, and did I mention her mad leet skills in graphic design are in evidence? 😀

In other news, I’m also hard at work adding Crooked Glasses’ first-ever affiliate–After-Hours.me! :’) Blogs grow up so fast… *sniffle* After Hours is an enjoyable and fun blog written by Chrizta, and I’ve been visiting for a while. Just had to get up the courage to ask for affiliation! 🙂

New Affy and Spiffed-Up Look, Plus Updates

First, a big announcement: WMW.org’s got a new affiliate! Raine of Ashke.net graciously accepted my request for affiliation–go check out her awesome domain (and don’t forget to bow). XD

Second: I fixed the itty-bitty-teeny-tiny-yet-still-annoying-to-my-OCD problem that I’d been having with Version 12 of WMW.org. It may not look a whole lot different, but trust me, the backend coding is much different! Suffice it to say that I can now display more than four affiliate buttons without the whole layout going batpoo crazy. 😀 HOORAY for expandability!

Third: I added my last two character pages to @Austara’s Character Files. Now, Beatalie and VIBRATE officially take their place in my pantheon of City of Heroes characters. Wootwoot!

…Kind of amazed that I was able to get all this done, after months of not being able to do squat with webdesign. Startling what living WITHOUT headaches can help you accomplish! ^o^

Uber-update at The Gamer’s Repose

Finally finished all the work I wanted to do over at The Gamer’s Repose.  Here’s a brief rundown:

  • Took off expansion/set lists for Magic and HeroClix–couldn’t keep ’em updated fast enough, and there were other sites that did it better
  • Created a sitemap
  • Edited Team Abilities article to reflect all the new team abilities in HeroClix

Hooray!  Only been trying to get up the energy to do this for four months… XD

Now, on to Skies Over Atlas.  Mwahaha.  🙂

Thank you for taking the time to read this post, and I look forward to hearing from you!  🙂

I heart the /images/ directory

…and I especially love it because I just spent about 45 minutes making it and moving tons of stuff over into it.

Oh, yes.  7 different little folders within the /images/ directory, all to organize the hundreds of images I had just tossed into my main directory willy-nilly.  The actual moving process didn’t take all that long, but I had to make sure all my text files linked to the images properly.  THAT took a while.  Ah, debug.

So, according to my last post, I told the truth–the image-hoarding problem WAS solved by “tomorrow,” which is today now.  😀  Woot, I finally didn’t procrastinate something to death.
