A new fanlisting to finish off the year
Had a pretty hectic holiday traveling schedule, but the good news is I applied and got approved for Athrun Zala's fanlisting at TAFL earlier this month, so when I got back after Christmas, I got working on it.
Athrun is one of my absolute favorite characters, so I'm really, really happy to own him. This does mean, however, I'll have to expose my decade-old shrine plans.... "Aldebaran" was the name I decided for a shrine dedicated to him probably over 10 years ago, but obviously never got around to working on. My biggest stumbling block was I could not make a layout I liked to save my life, so it never went anywhere.
With the fanlisting up, and a layout I like, I hope I can keep the motivation going and finally get the shrine online sometime in 2020. I've been rewatching Gundam SEED and SEED DESTINY (for the 4-5th time now) recently, so it's as good of a time as any for these plans to finally take shape.
Icon Sort errors
Due to my switch to PHP 7, I forgot Icon Sort, which I used for some of my fanlisting codes, was not compatible. After one of my fanlistings got in trouble, I realized my error and went through and updated all the affected fanlistings.
If anyone else also uses Icon Sort, I can pass along the fixed version that is compatible with PHP 7, just shoot me an email.
Fanlisting news and Enthusiast upgrade
Unfortunately I never got around to logging these new fanlistings when I first opened them.
I adopted Solas's fanlisting from Megan, who was super kind and understanding with how long I took getting it online. I really love Solas, and I appreciate the adoption.
Part of why I was dragging my feet on finishing the fanlisting was because I knew if I opened the fanlisting, I'd have to make public my Solas shrine. I started working on it in 2016, and all of the current pages you can view were written and uploaded around September of 2016, but after that I sort of let things slide, and never got around to working on it more. It sat online, but hidden from public view (since I never linked it anywhere) ever since. Now that the fanlisting is online, and the shrine exposed to the public, I hope to return to working on it again, and finish it some day.
But the main purpose of this update post is to say I finally updated Enthusiast to the PHP 7 compatible version by Lysianthus, with some additional tweaks. All my fanlistings have been converted over.
I might be doing some cleaning soon, so if there are any of my fanlistings you're interested in adopting, please contact me about them.
New layout for Ethereal
New fanlistings and adoptions.
Oops forgot to update when the first two went up, but this is basically a roundup post for my recent fanlistings.
If anyone is interested, I have a list of fanlistings available for adoptions here.
