Minor Character Fansite Marathon: Unveiling

Minor Character Marathon

Hey all! The Minor Character Fansite Marathon is officially coming to a close. Thanks to everyone for your support, whether you were able to finish a site or not. Nine amazing shrines were made during this event to characters many overlook. I hope you all enjoy browsing them!

Way Cool Moonless Rock Steady
Requiem Cyber Punk Dragonheart
Guardian God Likes to Play Soccer Full of Grace

To those who weren't able to finish in time -- we will accept late submissions. If you're working on your site, keep going, and let us know when you're done.

To One Page Shrine Marathon participants, keep working! August is fast approaching!

Call for Volunteers (SOTM)!

Can you spare a couple hours to make a fellow shrine maker happy? If so, you should volunteer to select the winner of our monthly Site of the Month Award!

To volunteer, submit your contact info and availability at the SOTM Communications Post, located on the top-right sidebar of our community. Former volunteers do not need to resubmit your information; this is merely a reminder for people who may not know where to go.

After the official opening of Amassment.org, Site of the Month will be renamed and relocated to the domain and forums. This revamp includes a new nomination system that will be easier for everyone involved. One thing that will not change is the importance of community members in the recognition process. Your nominations and your winning selections are the essential elements of the Site of the Month Award.

As always, if you have any thoughts you prefer not to discuss on Livejournal, feel free to email me at ava@amassment.org .

July 2012 Site of the Month.

When I got the mail full of links with really great shrines, I was for a moment scared, but then, I mean, every shrine that was nominated is really great and has stuff to give, I find them all beautiful, but there was place for just one winner for the Month of July.

First of all than you all of you who took your time and nominated the shrines: Aku, Destinie, Mikari, Todd, Varen, Vii. I loved all the nominations, believe me.

Now,.... let's go down to business...

Early Access

Hello everyone! We would like to invite you guys to have early access to one of our biggest new developments, our revamped forums! Our domain and forums are where we expect most of Amassment's activity to occur in the future, so we encourage everyone to register! While we plan to finish up the current events and SOTM at our Livejournal community, we expect all of our future activities and most of our future discussions to occur at Amassment.org. An official launch date will be set in the near future, and you all can join us for our grand opening party. For now, though, feel free to join the forums and start posting!

Why are we leaving Livejournal?

Well, we're not really leaving Livejournal. Amassment @ Livejournal will still be up and running. It just will be a small part of Amassment, though, and will no longer the main part of the community. Let's face it: less and less people use Livejournal everyday. It's become unreliable as of late, and when it is up, it's dead. Many of our members have told us they've only hung on to their Livejournals to continue being apart of Amassment, and some of our members have already left Livejournal altogether. We're excited about Amassment.org because people won't have to have a Livejournal to be part of Amassment anymore. Imagine how many new people we can reach out to.

How are these forums different from our last one?

When we launched our first set of forums a few years ago, we did so because members were asking for a place they could interact with each other and discuss things that didn't relate to shrines. We prohibited shrine discussion on those forums, because we wanted to keep Amassment @ Livejournal active. It was more of a place of fun. At that time, that was the best decision.

Now, though, with Livejournal dying, and so many shrinemakers not using Livejournal, it makes sense to have a domain as our central base, and use forums as a way for our members to participate at Amassment. Shrine discussion isn't just allowed at these new forums; it's encouraged. We of course have fandom and fun boards set up, too, and an Events and SOTM board will eventually be set up for our activities.

Our forums allow us to separate our content as well, so we can discuss and help webmasters with all parts of shrining – from content like we've previously been focused, and now to design! That's right, we have a board set up for you to post and beta your designs and graphics without annoying people who are more content-focused.

One last thing...

There's a significant new part of Amassment we haven't talked about yet. We've opened a Marketplace. Posting at Amassment's forums, participating in our events, and volunteering for SOTM or other activities will now earn you coins. More on that is discussed at the forums, but basically, you guys can purchase badges and other things to show off, and you can even open your own shops to offer graphics and other web services.

You'll want to join quickly because the first 10 non-staffer members who join the forums will receive 10 coins as a head start. :)

Now onto the forums!

Minor Character Fansite Marathon: Finished Form

Minor Character Fansite Marathon

It's almost the 14th, and thus, we are drawing close to the deadline for the Minor Character Fansite Marathon. Please fill out this form below and paste your answers to a new comment to this entry.



All comments are screened.

This time, we are allowing late submissions, so if you need just a little more time, don't worry! We just want to see new sites; we really don't care when it gets done. However, on July 20th, we will be showcasing our results, and submissions that aren't received by then will be added on later.

Amassment Staff

Hey guys, this is sort of long overdue, as many of our staffers have been hard at work for a little while now, helping us prepare our domain and forums, the next stage of Amassment. More information on that soon! For now, we'd like to call out Amassment's new staffers so they can get credit for their work, and so you all know who you can contact if you have issues or questions in our various areas.

The Directory Staffers who will be assisting Masao in adding, removing, and editing links to our shrines list, and keeping our Members page up to date are Karen and Yamila. You can contact Masao, Karen, or Yamila if you need a shrine link added or updated, or want to be listed on our Members page.

The Events Staffers are Juhi, Sofia, and Chibi. They will be working with Varen and me in coming up with and posting various events and activities for you guys to take part in. You may have already noticed their work in the Minor Character and One Page Shrine marathons. We're all hard at work and planning lots of stuff for you guys. If you have an idea for an event or marathon, or want to volunteer to run one, feel free to contact any Events Staffer. We're all here to support you guys with events.

The Forum Staffers are dubiousdisc, Mikari, Saya, and Sarah. They, along with Destinie, will be instrumental in the next big Amassment development. Again, more on that later.

Ava will still be doing shrine and member spotlighting. If you have any questions about, or want to volunteer with SOTM, she's still the one to talk to.

Having a large staff at Amassment is going to allow us to do more, and help you guys out a lot faster. Please don't hesitate to contact any staffer if you have any questions or issues down the road. :)

New MOTM

It's time to announce a new Member of the Moment. In contrast to SOTM, which is decided by community members, Member of the Moment is a gift from the mods to say "Thank you" to a member who goes out of their way to continue making Amassment community that it is today.
