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. 🙂

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.
