Hello everyone! You may have noticed that I've been sort of bad about updates for the past few days... But finally I can reveal why: I've completely revamped the community!
First and foremost, the community has a new name: WE LOVE UNDER CODE PRODUCTION . The name represents my ideal version of this community; not only is it a place to get news, but it's a place to come together over our common love. As individuals we're not very powerful, but together we can raise our voices and shout to the whole world that WE LOVE UNDER CODE PRODUCTION!
Aside from that gayness, the community has a brand new layout ! I worked really hard on it, so I really hope you'll all check it out. It's now fully functional, meaning you can easily navigate tags or check out older entries in the archive. Please give it a look and let me know what you think! http://under-code"; .livejournal.com
*New layout!- It just looks better! The content area is wider and the colors are easier on the eye. Navigation is easy to find and, this time, includes all important links (you can join the community from any page!). Hope you like it!
*We have a twitter account!- The account will repost headlines with links to the full articles. It's not much, but it should be useful if any of you use twitter more than LJ. And since you can push tweets to your mobile phone, you can stay updated wherever you go. If you're interested, please follow: twitter.com/we_love_ucp.
*Facebook and twitter integration- Many of you asked for more integration, so I did my best! There are now two links below every post, one for Facebook and one for twitter. In one click, you can automatically share stories on Facebook or retweet headlines (with automatically shortened URLs!) on twitter. I'm testing the waters with this one; hopefully many of you take advantage of it!
New tags (I actually rolled this one out a few days ago!) Since the tags were growing in numbers and there were multiple tags for the same artists, I went through and cleaned them up. I consolidated multi tags to one and deleted tags that had zero uses. In addition, all artist tags are now in the format “! Arc” to make tagging quicker and easier. It's a small change, but should be a useful one.
*Link directory and shopping guide- These two features aren't up yet, but I should finish them soon. First is an extensive, up-to-date link directory. The idea is to have all sorts of resources (official sites, fansites, blogs, forums, etc.) easily located in one area (I plan to feature non-English sites too, so tell me if you know of any!). Second is a comprehensive guide to shopping online for UNDER CODE items. Hopefully it will give you more options to support the label. Again, the features aren't up, but they're linked from the main navigation (placeholder pages for now), so you'll know where to go when they're up.
- *And coming soon...- Very soon, I'll be adding a page of “badges.” These are basically just images you can put on your last.fm profile, forum signature, journal, etc. to show your support for UNDER CODE. Also, since almost all of you asked for uploads, I'll be posting a few polls in the future to let you choose what you want to see uploaded! And finally, I'm not sure how it will work yet, but I'll definitely be trying to get some community viewing parties up and running!
If anyone wants to be more hands on, I'm looking for help! If you know of any UNDER CODE related sites that I may not know (as in, not the official sites), please send me a message or a comment! That will help immensely in building the link directory. Also, I haven't shopped at every store online, so feel free to share your experiences with various shops if you'd like. And finally, I'll be posting headlines to the twitter account, but if someone wants to supplement with additional tweets, I'm willing to share a password for the account!
So please take a second to see the new layout, check out the new features, and contribute to upcoming ones. And of course, this is your community, so please give me your feedback and opinions. Thank you, and enjoy :D http://under-code"; .livejournal.com
