lost-boy.org β€” I've updated the way members are displayed for a majority all of my fanlistings. It was something I've been meaning to do for a while. Many of the fanlistings I maintain only have a few fans, so I thought it'd be simpler to have all of the fans displayed at once instead of having a sort option.

For those with a substantial number of fans, I'm still tinkering around with some different ideas! Fanlistings that have multiple fields (ie. The Book Thief) are still being fiddled around with in the background as well. Aside from display changes, I'm also considering using Enthusiast to maintain any fanlisting affiliates instead of manually adding them myself.

All of this is done in preparation for a new upcoming fanlisting! The sooner I clean up some structures and codes, the easier it will be for me to attain some uniformity, especially when it comes to sites that need new layouts and CSS cleanups.

lost-boy.org
lost-boy.org β€” With the help of Masao and Elysa, I was able to update Enthusiast to Lysianthus' version for PHP 7+ yesterday. Unfortunately, the script I was using for the domain's updates blog wasn't compatible with that version, so I'll be working even harder on my end to move everything to over to Chronica.

I was able to move over all of my entries! Hopefully I'll be able to put up a new layout for this space, but in the meantime, excuse the bareness and any mess you might stumble across.

new wind worm king's lullaby dear happiness easy breezy bloom lost-boy.org reprise
Hello! There's been many changes happening throughout the site since the last time I updated, small as they were. I've neglected formally posting any updates in this blog, however, since I was making plans to move to an entirely new script for it: Chronica by the lovely Masao.

Recent events compelled me to finally make the big move, but before I set all of that up, I think it's best to give the huge update now.

lost-boy.org β€” Troubles with my former host popped up suddenly late Saturday / early Sunday, and after doing a bit more background research of my own, I decided it was time to move to a new host. I'm eternally thankful to Lysianthus for taking me under her wing! If you are looking for a new, affordable home to move your sites to, I highly recommend Leprd and Masao's Teacake.

The move went smoothly for the most part, even though it took a while to upload all of my files! My backup was from two months ago, but everything that was lost has since been restored. Any kinks and loose ends (broken characters, etc.) will hopefully be caught and fixed in the coming days. Feel free to let me know if you spot anything wonky!

Eternal thanks to Aku, for managing to grab my online TCG logs from a cached version of my trade post, Megan and Masao for encouraging and helping me when the blackout happened. Thank you all for looking out for me; it means so much.

I've edited portions of the main domain as well, revising and moving things here and there. Domain was updated to reflect the recent move, and I also edited the blurb about the domain's name to align with my current feelings towards Peter Pan. I'll consider doing a fuller revision of all the writing at a later date; I'm pretty content with what I have right now.

Bloom β€” I adopted the fanlisting for Yu Yu Hakusho's Kurama/Yoko Kurama from sweet Delphine! Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to care for it. Yu Yu Hakusho was one of my first anime/manga series, and Kurama was... um, my first fictional crush. To have a small dedication to him on my domain means a lot to meβ€”e-especially little Andrea! ( /)u(\ )

Dear Happiness β€” I've modified how the members are displayed in both this fanlisting and Kurama's. I'll consider doing the same to my other fanlistings, especially ones that I need to make new layouts for!

Easy Breezy β€” Makoto received some new friends a while back. Please welcome Ainna's fanlistings for Ryuguzaki Rei, Yamazaki Sosuke and Free! series movies as new affiliates!

Worm King's Lullaby β€” Another new affiliate! Please welcome Ainna's Uryuu Ishida fanlisting.

Reprise β€” I updated the site to Fancybox3. All of the fanlisting portions of the site (Join, Members, Update) now open in a Fanybox frame instead of a new page. Given how sparse those pages are, I didn't think it was necessary to have them be linked that way. I've also updated all of the external YouTube links to working videos.

New wind β€” The fanlisting for FTISLAND was closed back in May. I still love the band and their music, but my feelings nevertheless remain in a complex spot right now. I decided it was time to let go for the moment. Perhaps one day I will reopen it!

That's it so far, I think! I hope to be able to do more housekeeping very soon, including a new layout for this updates blog and modifying the way the members list is displayed for certain fanlistings done!. On a related note, I applied for one recently, so hopefully that will be included in a future update as well!

Thank you again for all the help and kind words I received during the domain's move. I'm happy this lost boy has found a new home.

sugar and spice
Sugar and Spice β€” The fanlisting for Gaius finally, finally got a brand new layout! I wanted to use the new artwork from Fire Emblem Heroes, but it wasn't working out very well, so I went with a different image instead. Nevertheless, I hope this is an improvement over the last one which was dark and atrocious and awful, ugh!

Now that I'm somewhat satisfied with the layout, I will hopefully be able to get the rest of the content up... once I revise it all a bit, haha. It's been a while since I've touched some of these pages...

Who knew the next update would be so soon? I didn't! I was also recently approved for a new fanlisting, too, so expect to see that in the next few updates or so.

shadow of hyrule
Shadow of Hyrule β€” I adopted the fanlisting for Impa of The Legend of Zelda series from the awesome Megan! I'm so sorry it took me as long of a time as it did. Thank you so much for allowing me to take care of it and for being so patient!!! ;___;

The layout was rather challenging for me as I'm just awful at figuring out how to use transparent .pngs sometimes, haha. I've also been suffering from a layout block and just... IRL responsibilities in general over the past few months which is why it has been rather quiet around here. I'm afraid I didn't even do anything for the network's first anniversary?!

Ideally, I would like to get up new layouts for 815 (even though I'm not playing any online TCGs at the moment!) and Sugar and Spice, and also continue progress on Cradle and Rupture. In any case, I hope I can get back to working on my sites and stuff soon!

new wind
New wind β€” The information portion of the site has been updated in light of Choi Jonghun's involvement with the Jung Joon Young/Seungri chats. It isn't worded very well, but I will be making edits and clarifications when I can and when needed. I'll also be attempting to remove him from any group pictures I used throughout the site, which is just the main layout header at this point. I will consider redoing fanlisting codes as well.

Frankly, good riddance to him, and here's hoping he's prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

tcg logs
TCG logs β€” After quite some time (years!), the site finally received a new layout. Truthfully, I made a new layout long ago. I intended to put it up back when I uploaded the latest version of the domain; it was referenced in the blurb I wrote despite not actually being online. While I still love many elements of the design, overall, I didn't think it would work well as an online TCG trade post layout. I'm still deciding on whether or not I should upload the unfinished version in the layout archive since there's still a small possibility that I may use it for something else in the future. In any case, although this layout isn't the original one I wanted to use, I think it still complements the domain nonetheless, haha.

That aside, I recently adopted a new fanlisting! The layout is already finished; I just need to set up the fanlisting portion. Soon!

Dear Happiness β€” New buttons and the old members list were added, courtesy of Mitchii. Thank you so much! Also, thanks to Elysa for helping me out and for making it possible. <3

Cast away β€” Images that were once hosted on Photobucket are not hosted on my own server. Farewell, Photobucket.

new wind
New wind β€” The fanlisting for FTISLAND got a new name and a new layout to celebrate the band's 10th anniversary! Some of the content has been rewritten or reformatted, and I've also taken down some songs and replaced them with new favorites. Although the discography is unfortunately under reconstruction, there is a brand new videography page. I hope to add more content in the near future.

Happy 10 years, FTI!

dear happiness
Dear Happiness β€” The fanlisting for Takemoto Yuuta from Honey and Clover is now open! This layout was a HUGE STRUGGLE for me. Although I'm still not completely satisfied with it, and do plan to continue tweaking it, I decided to open the site regardless. Everything should be functioning properly, so feel free to join!
