NES: Little Updates

In case anyone was spending their time worried that I was tired f my new project.

I just added an active and inactive page to the archive. I created them as master lists that someone can just scroll through from A to Z.

I added a few more blogs to the list. I'm now adding the month/year that I add them to the database. As I see people's blogs I am trying to snatch them up and add them in. It isn't a perfect system but the list is growing.

I am also putting a little update notice on the main page. This should help anyone checking the site to know that it is an active and tended project.

This weekend I will probably start looking at categories as well and add a few more news articles once I hunt them down.

I'm going to let the name soak in a bit more but I will probably buy a domain name for it shortly.

I know that there is a lot of Eve Blog drama out there right now. New Eden Source is simply an archive project. I can get my kicks out of seeing myself as a historian or librarian. If anything, the Eve Blog drama out there shows a need for independent sources and lists not focused on anything but creating accessibility paths for those seeking information about Eve. This is never going to be a highly complex website. That is not the goal. I want it very simple because its feature is the information that it holds.

  1. You might consider heaving a "Filter" on the blogs so the user can use "show only active blogs", e.g. if looking for information about more recent stuff or the up-to-date mechanics of EVE.

    I don't know anything about how complex it would be to implement that, though.

    1. Thank would be wonderful but it is well above my current abilities. However, may be time to learn some basic website language beyond my HTML abilities.

      Some of what you are looking for will be in the category pages once I figure out what I want them to say and how I want them to look. It will not be a search and get focused flavor cookie option but it should allow someone to easily select a sub-page that has a more focused list of what they want.

  2. I am being part of the peanut gallery, with trivial suggestions. No rush; your list is already wonderful. Seriously.

    Can you add 'contact details' on new eden sources? Your front page has 'If you have any links for me to add leave a comment or send me an e-mail and I will add it.'

    However it also has "Comments : You do not have permission to add comments."

    I also can't find an email address, or pilot name on it, or an explicit link back to this site to allow people to add comments.

    1. No worries. I will get that info added tonight. I dunno why the comments are weird. If I cannot get them working I will try to remove them.

  3. http://talocanunited.com/wordpress/feed/ : wormhole category(if you end up adding categories).

    Now all I need to do us update my own lists from yours (and add this talocan's site too)
