Screencaps prefix change

Screencaps I made all have the prefix ariane179254_ until about April 21, 2017. Starting today, the prefix is extant_ So if a screencap is named something like ariane179254_TeenWolf_1x07_NightSchool_0068.jpg or extant_TeenWolf_1x07_NightSchool_0068.jpg I made it.

Update On My Sites

Marta, my co-web at my Rachel Weisz fansite has adopted the site 😀 It’s propably the most complete RW site currently online and I’d have hated to shut it down after all the work gone into it but I also didn’t want to have it anymore. Marta’s been staff there for about 5 years now and she’s done an awesome job, much more than I have for several years now. I’m very happy to turn the site over to her completely 🙂

I’m still on a little bit of on the fence with The Vampire Diaries fansite – I’m not really into the last couple of seasons, season 8 is rather boring but on the other hand there’s only I think 6 episodes left and then the entire series is over, and I still really want to cap season 2 and maybe also re-cap season 3 from Bluray. So I figure I’ll keep it for now. Otherwise I think I’ve reached an acceptable balance – I just couldn’t bring myself to shut down ALL my fansites/screencaps sites or even to adopt them out because they are just too dear to me. But I shut down/adopted out most of them, and it will free up so much of my time that it should help whole lot. For now. That’s not to say it won’t happen in the (near) future, because I really kind of want to shut them all down but for now, there are few that I can’t.

My Sites page has a current listing of all my sites, social media, deviantart etc. accounts.

Closing Down Sites

I’ll be closing down my fansites/screenapping sites. I’m not sure which ones yet – I kinda want to close down all of them, really.

Reasons I won’t go into here, and also because they’re taking much of my energy (I’m a spoonie and have been for a few years now) and I feel like I want to try and use what energy I have for more creative pursuits such as writing fanfic and making fanart and non-Internet related creative stuff. Fansites are like a work obligation – I know people want and expect updates often and regularly and I feel like I must do that first before anything else or I’ll feel quilty – but then I don’t have any energy left for creative things. I still love doing fansites but I miss being able to do creative things terribly, and that dissatisfaction is bugging me. I kind of want the feeling of not having obligations to update and monitor sites – even if there’s nothing to update with, there’s always the change that the server will blow up or database problems or hacking or whatever. So while most of the time everything goes smoothy and doesn’t require action, it’s always in the back of my mind that anything and everything could blow up any minute. I can’t remember what not-worrying-about-that feels like.
