Nightbringer

Major Collective Restructuring

Nightbringer – My fanlistings collective, Shimmer, has been closed and merged with Nightbringer! I did this for several reasons:

  • One collective is easier to update and manage than two.
  • Many of my fanlistings are also shrines, and vice versa, so the two collectives were a little redundant.
  • I want to be able to interact with all of my visitors, no matter which of my sites they visit, in one central place. Nightbringer is my home on the web, and the launchpad of all of my fandom-related websites — my shrines, my fanlistings, and my projects that sit somewhere in the middle.

Check out the revamped Domain page for more information.

With this merge, fanlistings collective affiliates have been added to the Linkage, and a 75×50 banner has been created for fanlistings collectives to link back to Nightbringer. If you were affiliated with Shimmer, please change your link to Nightbringer. Thank you!

Site type is now listed with each of my larger sites (Character Shrine, or Character Shrine & Fanlisting, for example). Sites that are more fanlisting than shrine are linked with icons under a special Fanlistings header on the sites pages. Some sites listed under Fanlistings currently will eventually be expanded and linked above with my shrines. Some I’m content remaining just fanlistings. ūüôā

Fanlistings not currently linked are in limbo: some are in the process of being adopted out, and others will likely be closed. The fanlistings listed at Nightbringer are the ones I intend to keep and continue working on. For those interested, here is the list of fanlistings currently in limbo (If you are interested in any of these, please shoot me an e-mail!):

  • Animorphs
  • Bravely Default
  • Courteney Cox, actress (Adopted!)
  • Koopalings from Super Mario Bros.
  • Shawn Ashmore, actor
  • The Sixth Sense, film

Shimmer’s old subdomain is now being used as a Fanlistings Joined page. I will be removing the link to Shimmer from my fanlistings in the coming days.

I hope these changes make sense to you. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me via e-mail or by signing my network’s chatbox on Nightbringer’s main page. Thanks everyone who has signed it so far! I love hearing from you all.

New Collective Layout!

Nightbringer – New layout featuring Chrom from Fire Emblem: Heroes! This layout was made in conjunction with Samantha who used Lucina in hers, because making matching layouts is fun, and I needed the motivation and inspiration. Samantha is a great friend of mine, and her layouts are stunning, so definitely be sure to check hers out when you leave here.

The web needs more Fire Emblem.

Updates Log

Night All Around – Night All Around, my previous pre-shrine blog, has been repurposed into an updates log for all of my sites across The Nightbringer Network. A pre-shrine blog suited my needs¬†when I had less time to work on shrines and wanted shrines to develop slowly and naturally, but now that I have more time to devote to my sites, it¬†sat largely unused. I have been wanting to streamline my sites’ updates so that updates can be found in one place for some time now. As I update each site, updates will be available to be browsed by site. Updates entries here will be plugged on my network’s Updates Twitter.

A Murder of Crows –¬†The Links section has been revamped! Dead links have been removed and new links have been added.

Nightbringer – The¬†Affiliates and Links sections have been cleaned out! I am accepting link exchanges! If I overlooked your collective, and you’d like to be linked, please feel free to hit me up!

Nightbringer Archive

The following updates were recorded on my domain, Nightbringer.net, prior to February 16, 2017, when I opened this updates log.

January 21, 2017 – New site! Drift Away is a shrine to Drifloon and Drifblim from Pokemon. Check out the Other Games section for more information. I hope you enjoy it! Please let me know what you think!

September 15, 2016 – I am excited to announce a joint project with my good friend Stefi: Those Who Fight, a Final Fantasy community builder! We accept one shrine per character in an attempt to get every Final Fantasy character shrined. For more details, check out its listing on the Community page.

August 14, 2016 – Cleaned up and reorganized the network a little bit! Night All Around now has its own page in navigation, and a banner link on the index for quick access. I’ve decided not to renew the Drew Barrymore domain, so I moved those sites here to Nightbringer and updated those urls.

July 26, 2016 – I’m excited to announce a new major feature of The Nightbringer Network: Night All Around, a pre-shrine blog! I plan to update it at least a couple times a month and feature articles on a variety of my many interests, with the idea of allowing my upcoming shrines to develop on their own. For more information, check out the Night All Around about page.

April 20, 2016 – Well, the guestbook was short-lived. It attracted a lot of spam, and I mean a LOT. I’ve replaced it with a CBox which you can now find on the index. I still want to hear from you!

March 15, 2016 – The Guestbook and Contact page got new layouts to theme with the 404 page. Now all of my “extra” sections match! These layouts are a throwback to an old version of Nightbringer.

March 11, 2016 – New layout! This layout was made to commemorate my Dynamic Duos project with Samantha at Amassment. A Hei shrine is on the way! Until it gets here, I hope you guys enjoy the layout. Please let me know what you think on Twitter or in my guestbook.

October 29, 2015 – I moved as soon as we debuted this and was without internet access for a while, so I’m just now getting to adding it, but Samantha and I opened a shrine recommendations blog called The Amazing! Check out the two awesome amazing sites we have featured so far.

October 15, 2015Forget Me Not has returned! It has been fully revamped with four new articles and some rewritten ones. It now covers aspects of Kara from the entire series.

April 20, 2015 – I reorganized the Sites pages here and at Shimmer. All sites have new icons, and sites are divided by subject over several pages for easier browsing.

March 1, 2015 – My Tidus website, Poltergeist, is now located at http://tidus.website/! My favorite, biggest, and most active site deserves its own domain.

February 18, 2015 – New site! A Murder of Crows is dedicated to Henry from Fire Emblem: Awakening. Check out the Sites page to learn more.

December 8, 2014 – My friend Crystal and I launched Legendary, a Nintendo directory today! It has been added to the sites page. Check it out, and join if you have sites dedicated to subjects that appeared on Nintendo consoles!

November 21, 2014 – New layout! Jump on Twitter and let me know what you guys think! In addition to the new layout, the domain has all new buttons and three new affiliates. Check all of my affiliates out. They’re all great friends with amazing sites.
