An archive of all the update logs I wrote for the website. Mostly as a reference to myself, and also so that they don't clog the main page too much
09/11/2022 - Update 2 - Been mostly distracted today, but I added some more of the Neopets artwork and had to fix some extra issues with the galleries on mobile. Speaking of mobile, I adjusted the literature and journal pages to have a slightly wider formatting on smaller screens. I'm hesitant to add the rest of my fics in case I have to fix the formatting on every single page again, so I'll wait until I'm fully satisfied with it.
Old Neopets art page is almost finished, though it's a bit laggy... Is this a bandwidth issue from not being a neocities supporter (yet) or something else I can fix? Consider becoming a supporter once this place is better fleshed out.
09/11/2022 - Update 1 - Still working on the Neopets art section :) Added the art for some of my pets and did some very minor CSS changes. The galleries are a lot more finicky than I thought.
Reminder to self that I need to update the galleries on the Sewing page so they have the updated code. Not like they're visibly messed up there, but might as well get it out of the way :)
Not a fan of how fics look on mobile, consider looking into that and formatting it like AO3
07/11/2022 - Misc. minor updates here and there. Slightly reorganized the literature section and while at it, I added one of my League of Legends fanfics, Chained. It's from 2018 and I haven't reread it since, even now I couldn't bring myself to do it, but I want to update it slightly for any wonky sentences that maybe could be worded better.
I also added my very ancient Neopets adopts and old screenies from 2007 to the Old Neopets Art page! There's still a lot of art that is missing, but it will be getting added soon :) Slowly getting there. I'm experimenting with different gallery types.
I also had to move the website counter to the right sidebar in the main page because last night it wasn't loading for and I assume its host website was down, but that was causing the rest of the sidebars not to load.
At least with it being on the right side, it allows all the layout bars to load first. I am also aware that the Header and Footer are the last things to load, which likely has to do with the script I'm using for them. I wonder if there's anything I can do about that...
05/11/2022 - No one will see it but today I organized my CSS sheet and also cleaned up this index page a bit :) There's a lot of nonsense code I added when I was still trying to figure things out and I'm really proud of myself that I'm becoming better at this to the point where I can start seeing more and more mistakes I made.
Also unrelated, but I fixed the mobile stuff on the Journal page, and also added some extra Deltarune fanfics. Only AO3 links so far, I have IRL plans so I can't add the fics today. Maybe tomorrow if I'm not too tired.
04/11/2022 - Spent today messing around with this place. I slightly reorganized the pixel art page and adding my Deltarune OC sprites. I also finally made a new page for the Art Archive, particularly one for my old OLD art. I want to better improve my skills at making galleries and stuff like this before I go ahead and add my more recent and regular art.
Anyway, there's a bit of a placeholder image situation going on in those menus because a lot of the older art isn't available online anymore since my Photobucket is in a weird limbo state atm. I have everything saved at least, so that's a start.
I decided to start with my Neopets stuff since it's the earliest art I got archived... I only added a few adoptables and a few self-indulgent ramblings so far, but that's about it. I'll be adding the ancient screenshots and everything else soon-ish.
03/11/2022 - Update 2 - I used to think it was kind of silly when my teachers said to never do inline coding and put everything in a style sheet. I suddently understand what they meant :')
03/11/2022 - Update 1 - After many experimental back and forths, I finally managed to get a gallery layout that works in a way I like! It's hardly perfect and still has a few quirks I need to work on, but overall, I'm very happy with the result :)
I also added a new font to the h2 and h3 thingies to spice things up and so far I'm very happy with how it's turning out!
While I was working on the gallery features, I also reworked the Art Archive Page a bit. The links still aren't functional aside from the Pixel Art and Sewing ones, but we'll get there :) Now that I'm writing this, maybe I should remove the links that lead to the stock W3Schools placeholder picture of a mountain haha
Edit - I did that, AND I finally made the main page more mobile friendly! Normally I wouldn't care, but I would like to show this website to my dad seeing as he mostly uses the phone, and it would be cool if the first impression wasn't a broken website :'D
The pixel art page needs better organization before I go ahead and start making more pages. I initially made the pixel art page right away since it's a type of art that I rarely made, wELL GUESS WHAT MY DELTARUNE PHASE REALLY GOT ME INTO DOING AGAIN.
I'm also debating how my OC section is going to look like. Initially I was only going to add Drimare Universe content, but seeing how my brain got hijacked by Deltarune, perhaps a "By Universe" filter for the OC pages would be cool? Somewhat inspired on the current organization on my Toyhou.se perhaps.
01/11/2022 - sO I DIDN'T FORGET ABOUT THIS, I just kind of lost motivation and suddenly it's November. Anyway I saw a post on Tumblr about NeoCities and was like "Oh hey, that's the thing I have", so here I am again.
While I went on a bit of a self-indulgent stupor by adding a bunch of buttons I liked to my Footer, I'm mainly doing behind the scenes changes atm. I changed the overall website's font to "ＭＳ Ｐゴシック" but much to my dismay, the pixely effect is lost when you go above 22 pixels, and it does not seem to work on my phone at all :(
Perhaps I'll go look for a better pixeley font to match the vibes I'm going for this place, I did have to increase the font size since the italics got a bit crunchy at some point.
Currently I'm moving the glittery cursor code somewhere else, because rather than putting it in it's own separate page with the header, I just pasted the entire script on every page separately, so now I have to edit out every single page that has it, good thing this website doesn't have that many pages on it yet...?
Page Idea - Site Map?
12/04/2022 - Awkward moment when you make a Latest Updates section but neglect to update it when you change the website lol. Added an art section for my Pixel Art :)
Also added a new plush to the Sewing section and greyed out buttons for empty pages on the Creative Archive so it's clearer which pages are available and which aren't. ...Responsive layouts on most pages are still waiting to be made.
03/03/2022 - Slow updates, been too caught up in commissions and other projects to work on this place, but I did add the first page to the Art Archive, particularly one for my plushie work since I have so few of them. I'm debating whether I'll use that format for all the art pages or if I should try something different...
Note to self - The "To Give You Heaven" fic isn't posted here yet, don't forget. Also add CSS to links and make them look nicer.
24/02/2022 - Did not add League of Legends fanfics lol. But I did add the journal page and a single entry, as well as thumbnails for the art gallery and have begun to tamper with media queries so this place actually looks navigable on mobile. I was worried it would be too hard but it's actually pretty simple to understand and I'm kind of resenting getting crappy grades in the HTML/CSS classes because I couldn't get my dumb creature brain to understand how media queries worked. Why did teachers make it sound like such a headache???
23/02/2022 - Update 2 - Added all the Deltarune fanfics except the ones that are works in progress. Added base for Art Archive but still not happy with the format. Tomorrow add the League of Legends fanfics while thinking about it??
23/02/2022 - Update 1 - Slow day. Added FAQ section on the About page and started attempting to add an interests section. Struggling with boxes and whatnot, I'm not even that invested in adding interests, consider scrapping?
22/02/2022 - Added Latest Updates bar, draft for About page and a few Deltarune fanfics. Still need to plan out how the art gallery will look. Also create an update log page so I can archive these updates when they become too much? I had an idea to make a page dedicated to my hyperfixation history earlier, would that be stupid?
