As of yesterday, Underdogs is officially 10 years old! A lot’s changed, some things have stayed the same; it goes through periods of not being touched for months or years (… ahem), but it’s still around.
Obviously the contest didn’t quite get off the ground as planned, partially owing to my having to move on short notice riiiight after the contest started, and then not having a functioning computer or internet for several months after that, on top of a new job that has me 6 days a week.
I will be rebooting the contest soon once I take care of a few things (moving again now that lease is up), and hopefully everything will be good to go again soon :)
Until next time~
The sidebar on the main site has been updated to give a list of all the RSS feed reading possibilities currently available, and a page with a complete list can be found at the Feeds page. In addition, I’ve added a monthly email Newsletter that will serve as a monthly roundup of updates. If you wish to subscribe, feel free to visit the newsletter main page or use the form on the site’s sidebar.
As I unexpectedly need to be out of town this weekend with uncertain internet access, I went ahead and posted the Art Submission form on the contest page. You are now welcome to submit your fanworks to the contest.
[ + ] Lovely things arrived in the mail today, so I’ve added scans of Ishida, Uchimura, and Sakurai’s photosets from Tenimyu Season 2: Seigaku Vs. Fudoumine. Expect more such things in the coming weeks.
First, I’ve changed the way the Fanart and Gallery pages are laid out – now instead of just a list of links, you get thumbnails with a small description of the gallery and the pages are overall more user-friendly.
In addition, many of the existing galleries were merged under new categories: Anime Artwork, Game Artwork, and Manga Artwork. The Manga Artwork gallery contains scans ONLY from the original Prince of Tennis manga and its fanbooks/artbooks.
What this means: If you were linking to ANY of the original gallery categories (except for the Miscellaneous section), your links will no longer work and need to be updated to the new URL.
[ + ] I’ve added 2 new categories to the galleries: Musical Prince of Tennis and New Prince of Tennis. Musical Prince of Tennis currently contains scans of various photosets and OSTs, and New Prince of Tennis contains manga images only. It may later be changed to a top-level category containing anime artwork as well.
[ + ] [ + ] The Musical Prince of Tennis gallery now contains scans from the Dream Live 2nd OST, Dream Live 4th OST, and the Dream Live 4th Photosets.
[ + ] [ + ] The New Prince of Tennis gallery now contains scans from New Prince of Tennis Volume 01.
That’s it for now, and remember the 10th Anniversary Fanwork Contest opens in about 4 days, on March 15th! See you soon~
Fixed the problem with the RSS Feed not working. It should now work by visiting http://fudomine.org/feed/ or http://fudo-underdogs.livejournal.com. I’ve also added feeds for both Underdogs’ updates and Underdogs’ Fanfiction on Dreamwidth.
