Now I Can Sleep...
Sometimes the only way to get something accomplished is to tie yourself to your chair and not leave (even for the bathroom) until that something is done.
From 10 PM to 1 AM, I did such a thing. I rolled up my sleaves and did some development work.
As I said in a previous blog entry, I like to move fast--and it might be a while until we find a new developer. So...
"Featured Fandom" - check it out on the main page. Scroll to the bottom.
I still have to clean it up a little, make the code and layout a little neater, perhaps add category or author links, but I already love it.
Basically, moving forward, I want to make theOtaku.com more of a LIVE destination. Give you a reason to come back daily.
One thing I hated about our "Featured Anime Hubs" section was that it never updated. It was always the same 10 hubs, for years!
Now we have featured fandom. Basically, the script I wrote finds the most popular fan works (fan art wallpapers, greetings) in the last 24 hours and posts them to the main page.
Submitters have a new way to gain a (lot) of exposure and visitors, as they're checking the news, can pop down to see what's "hot."
What do you think?
