As Shaken by the Train
Oh, a Christmas Eve update. What do I have up my sleeve for today's update? Is it...magic? No! No it's not.

Now then, updates:

+ New affiliate: Shattered Glass
+ New snapshots of episodes 23, 24, and 25
+ Added some new random avatars for the Forum
+ New contribution to the InuYasha Too Much List
+ New poll is up

Previous poll results on the question- New Layout: Love?

Poll Results
Poll Comments

And in response to the comments (bottom to top):

1. Too blue? Perhaps. But we will endure it anyway. Replacing Kikyou with InuYasha just defeats the purpose of the layout. I'd rather not have InuYasha in every. single. layout. B o r i n g.

2. The option "somewhat love" to me is just a fine response if you liked the layout, but "dislike" the character used.

3. Thanks

I know a lot of people hate simply it features Kikyou, but I don't care. This site is not biased towards characters.

Anyway, hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. Whatever you celebrate, celebrate hard and well!

It's like a shuffle beat; easier to repeat
Updates, oh updates:

+ December SOTM is: Taijiya no Isamu-- See their review below.

+ New wallpaper (I know! So rare!).

- Deleted wallpapers that were contributed by others. (only two). I'm still traumatized long ago of someone submitting me something they didn't do. I'm just going to keep it featuring my own works.

+ New snapshots of episodes 20, 21, and 22

+ New download, textless opening: 2

And now we take this time to commence bitching. You know, I am not ignorant if you're direct linking a picture. Every time someone visits your page, a little note is logged to me of that outside url that has one of MY pictures. Of course I could always bring back up the black list, but let's just trot out the following morons here:

1. Direct linking multiple avatars

2. Direct linking/stealing my personal avatar/info content/snapshots

3. Direct Linking multiple MID Zip files, Direct linking Icon

4. Direct Linking button

5. Direct Linking Wallpaper

6. Direct Linking Enter sign

7. Direct Linking Avatar


Isn't that nice? Brings me joy. Angry joy.

Until next wonderful update-

Behold! The power of cheese! Er... Update!

+ New IYK Forum Layout (Kikyou Featured)
+ Snapshots of episodes 17, 18, and 19
+ About a million new InuYasha Too Much contributions (over 700 now)
+ New fan art contributed by Kagome305
-Took down Link Exchange
-Took down Your Opinions

Reasoning for taking down link exchange, well, from now on I'm only going to add sites that I really enjoy myself. I suppose you can always e-mail me to ask, but usually the chance will be slim if I'll accept it. Soon I'll go though the current links with a fine tipped comb.

Your Opinions are down simply because reconstructing is taking longer than I expected. Hopefully it will be completed by the end of December.

Soon I'll be picking a new affiliate from the submitted entries I have so far. So, hurry and apply if you haven't done so yet and wish to.

New Layout
Yep new layout. Fresh for the cold/winter-ness. I'm sure some may "hate" it because it features Kikyou. To those people I say:

Build a Bridge and Get Over It

No, I didn't make the layout as a tribute from past new episodes that played on Adult Swim or anything. I made this months before that. As I've noted before, I plan on using all characters as a layout.

There's a few bugs I need to fix. So you may run into something that doesn't seem right. Also, if your seeing some of the resemblance of the previous layout that was up (which was a tan/brown color) clear your cache.

That's the update for now,

Revamp
How unexpected! an update! (I'm so avoiding homework right now). Re-constructing IYK Euphoria Fanlisting (located under the 'fan' section) didn't take as long as I dreaded. I slapped a layout together for it quickly though. Anyway, up and running!

For those who don't know what in the world IYK Euphoria is, It's simply a fanlisting of people who are deliriously in love with the InuYasha series.

Currently 99 members. Will YOU be the hundredth? Humm?

(note that about two or three people sent an application, these were not added since I was reconstructing everything)

I went through the tedious task of hand coding all the past members into the new format. The only downside to this switch is that people can now be listed by country (of where you reside). Since I didn't ask...eh... Everyone who previously signed up is under USA. If you're listed and are not from USA, contact me to change it.

Puppy Dog Tails and Snails
Ooh, extra special for today. You get dos snapshots! That's two for one! 7 eggs for one dollar...eh... Anyway:

+ episode 8 (32 pixs) and episode 9 snapshots (44 pixs) added
+ two new fan arts added by Master Inuyasha and Veronika
+ one new fanfiction, Never Fall in Love!, PG-13, by ILuvIY17
+ new contributions to the Inuyasha Too Much list
- IYK Euphoria shall be down for a while

I'm reconstructing the whole thing. I'm not sure what I'll do with the names that signed up, but hopefully I'll figure out something. I suppose I could just delete it all. That would be a little sad since some of those are from 03'

Some FYI for some upcoming updates:

Completed (squeaky and clean) the newest layout design. I'm itching to put it up next month. Also I'm going to try and make some more quizzes along with wallpapers. Finally, a new AMV is in the works featuring movie 3.

Until next update--

READ
Okay, I want to make a note about flooding my guestbook. Yes, I check it.

DO NOT FLOOD THE GUESTBOOK



What's flooding?

1. Making multiple entries. You only need one.
2. Don't post you've changed your site title, changed a link, etc. I find that annoying. I'll visit your site if I want to. Talk about your site changes there, not my guestbook.

Scandalous
I'm alive! ::wheezes:: Alive...and older. My birthday was the third. ::sigh:: Me feel old...

Alright, quite a big new thing:

-/+ Took down the AMV page and replaced with a new download page (under media section)!

Yes, it's own little system. Which is where AMVs, sound clips, eppy clips will be available. I've transferred the AMVs I had over there. So, you don't have to go though AMV.org to download. Here you can comment and rate the file.

So yeah...that took me all day to install. I hope this will please some of you, who've been requesting another way to download. Keep in mind this is my own bandwidth we are using. Periodically I will disable links, then activate other links.

+ Two new contributions to InuYasha Too Much List
+ New fanfiction up in G section, Collide, by ohrockstar
+ Added one new members to Euphoria
+ Added a Contest Winners page
+ New Link Out added
+ New Poll is up

Also, soon I'm getting InuYasha dvds (oh..the wonders of Netflix) to screencap episodes. I'm tired of digging though my VHS copies. Plus the quality will be 100% better. No way I'm redoing what I have right now though. I'd rather die a thousand deaths than do that again. ^_^

Oy, I have so much I would like to add and fix on the site. I wonder if I shall ever get it done. ::crestfallen:: Anyway, until next update!

Calm before the Storm
Eh... As some may know I'm from Texas. As some may don't know, I'm about 130 miles or so from Houston...which is being evacuated. So. What does that mean exactly? I'm not really sure myself. Where I live there 'was' a mandatory evacuation. It's been bumped down to voluntary yesterday. I don't know how bad it will be here. I have no idea. Not in the slightest.

I may update on Monday for all I know, or perhaps the electricity may be out for days. Have to just hope for the best.

On that note... I went ahead and made a minor update to the site:

+ Quite a few new InuYasha Too Much additions, 675 in total
+ New fanfiction up in R section (NC-17 warning) The Heiress of Heaven by quirkyslayer
+ Added two new members to Euphoria


Until next update...

Notice
I'm sure hardly anyone was aware, lol, but this site was down for quite awhile. Due to the freak massive power outage in Los Angeles, which is where my site's server resides.

I've taken down the poll because that's not working correctly as of now. My host is saying that they are turning on servers gradually. The poll is apart of a different little sever. Anyway, I'll test it out a little later to see if it works. From what I can see the Forum is working alright. If you see any other problems, feel free to call my attention to it.

**edit**

And--- my inuyashakarma@moon-blurred.net webmail isn't working. Contact me at XxSilverAngelxXx@aol.com, if needed.

Everything seems to be working now. Poll and my domain webmail is up.

A picture is worth a thousand words...
Surprise! New snapshots added! Never thought you would live to see the day, did you?

+ Episode 7 snapshots added (41), which now we have over a 1,000 gallery pixs!
+ One new link out added
+ A big, big, big contribution to the too much list by Lita, which now topples over 600

Yes, only reason why I actually cropped and clipped some snapshots today is because I was sick. Stomach flu...food poisoning, I have no idea what it is, but it didn't get a chance to fall asleep until the late afternoon. I felt so horrible. What's worse was that in the morning I was supposed to start my new job, which I even got dressed and everything hoping I would feel better, but nay.

Eh, anyway, so when I felt somewhat better I just began working on some sitey work. You will be surprised to know that I've just completed the Winter Layout for IYK and Spring layout. I have no idea why I made them either--especially so early. Humm...just really planning ahead? x_x

Some InuYasha news I should throw out here:

1. InuYasha: The Castle Beyond the Looking Glass debuts Saturday, Aug. 27 (Tomorrow) on Adult Swim. (I wish my tv would bloody work ::sigh::)
2. Movie 3, Swords of an Honorable Ruler-- There's a EXCELLENT deal online at Best Buy, pre-order the movie and get the soundtrack! Click here to see!

Until next update-

Yes...I missed my site's birthday. =(
I didn't get to do anything special for the site on it's anniversary a few days ago. I've been thrown into work like a horrid beast. I did make a cheesecake for myself. ^_^

Which, really I should be asleep right now, but might as well update anyway!

Here's the last poll results: See here

Ha to you nay sayers! Democracy wins!


And indeed I have installed a forum. It's all set up and ready to go. I promise you at least me and my friend Gina will have fun posting rambles. ^_^

The link to the IYK Forum shall be on the fan section.

As a nice lovely that I am, I've made some gallery avatars for people to use. I was able to use the Japanese names for the character. I suppose I think that's particularly snazzy. ^_^ Hopefully if I ever screencapture the newest characters, I'll make avatars out of them as well. Or, if you're really nice, you can donote the character image that you want.

So please join and post. I know it will be slow to start, but it's free for your use. Also if anyone can think of any other categories you would like, feel free to post in the Suggestion Box section.

As to other updates we have 4 new Your Opinions:

[ New Article ] -- for Adult Swim... Scheduling by Pua
[ New Article ] -- for Anti-Kikyou vs. Anti-Kagome by Carlos
[ reply 13 ] -- for Kagome's Character by Maggie

Whooo for comment boxes!
Yay! Finally got it figured out. Was it really that hard? No.. but it was certainly hard from me to remember what were all these files I had to do the program. Twas' recommended by Nozomi I do believe. I admire her nifty comment-ness. smile

Yes, do you see that weird "purr" ? I actually made the emodicons. At first I was doing a lovely little InuYasha inspired head when all my work was deleted. Discouraged and crestfallen I pondered something else I could do quickly. So.. I found the Chocho...Chococat?... Is that the name? Character from Hello Kitty. I don't know to much about Hello Kitty, but the little kitty is adorable.

Also you can note that I made these since they aren't the greatest quality. x_x

But hey, first time me ever attempting to do some. Do I get cookies anyway?


So, some of you do fear the layout...as...noted by a few in the guestbook, the header graphic is a bit big. Mm, but it shall stay. Unless everyone finds it ungodly annoying. I usually do 3 versions of a layout that I'm working on, and for this one it's a version one. Why so quick to put em' up? Ah...I just want to explore the world of PHP. Plus, I can easily change the layout later. I shall when I get those new calendar scans.

I think the last bit that I'll add, to somewhat bring this into a sitely update, is that I've had a few e-mail suggestions about having a forum. I'm indeed very capable of hosting one easily. I just have no idea if you [ the people ] would like it or not?

I see many InuYasha sites that have forums, but it's rather dead. Some of my good friends from today I've met through forums, so I think that is indeed a fun way to communicate and gear towards a center community. Perhaps with the forum I could replace the 'Your Opinions' Section with a special spot in the message board. Mmm. Don't know.

I may cast a poll to see, but if you have any feelings about it one way or another. Feel free to leave a comment! That's why I have this little bugger in the first place. ^_^

Previous update on 7/13/05...
2 affiliate spots for IYK are now currently available. Feel free to [ apply ].


Yes...as it looks I had gotten inspired in a matter of days. @_@ A new fresh layout, which I'm sure the majority of you may be a little scared of the brown. ^_^

How on earth I pick my colors that I do, I have no clue. On a whim, just a whim. As for the main image, It features three of our series fellows. I personally like Sesshy in that one. *ahem* anyway, now I am indeed php-ifed. I'm PHP-PiMpEd in other words..for you young folks.

Eh, the haloscan comments don't seem to work in PHP pages. I'm sure you have to...pay or something for it to do so. I know there's some free PHP comment codes floating around out there, which I'm trying to find.

Do note the snazzy little poll to the side. (which you CAN send me comments through that! eh...about the poll subject!) which, I'll personally get whatever comment you make. Note that if some of you love to spam Spammy SpAm, I will block IP addresses. =D

I may redo some of the header images to go with this layout...and I'm sure there's some bugs...perhaps broken links floating around. If you spot any, please feel free to let me know.

So...this is the layout that I created in a matter of days and switched all of the HTML pages to PHP through non-stop hours. What do you think?

Leave a comment in the guestbook or the poll on the side! Arigato and until next update!
