Domain & Webmiss


{Domain}   iceflowers.org hosts my fanlisting since January 2010. Before moving to that domain, my fanlisting could be found under fan.november-solitude.net and utsukushiki-yami.org, both names which I didn't like for too long and found too complicated to use. So when I decided to get a new domain, I knew it must be short and easy to remember. I finally came up with iceflowers.org when I listening to the song "Eisblumen" by the german band Eisblume which translates to *surprise* "Ice Flowers". I was really addicted to that song back then (still love it today) and as I also love ice and flowers, it was perfect and when I saw that my favorite TLD was available, I registered it. I'm still very happy with that domain and I doubt I'll ever let it go again.

While each fanlisting had it's own subdomain for years, I felt like it was time for a change in mid 2015. I was playing with the idea of a new domain for related fanlistings for a while, but eventually decided that it's not needed. So instead of getting more domains, I decided to move related fanlistings to their own subdomain, except for those that are having a domain itself. So currently my fanlistings are scattered over the following (sub) domains:

http://leon-kennedy.net/ - Leon S. Kennedy fanlisting       http://my.littlepony.org/ - My little Pony fanlisting
http://my.last-escape.org/ - Resident Evil fanlistings       http://her.last-escape.org/ - Games fanlistings
http://moon.iceflowers.org/ - Sailor Moon fanlistings       http://fragile.iceflowers.org/ - Anime/Manga fanlistings
http://faded.iceflowers.org/ - Animation fanlistings       http://shattered.iceflowers.org/ - Everything else

{Name}    Every site needs a quirky good name, and as much as I like iceflowers I wanted a different name for my fanlisting collective. Since I started a collective in late 2008, it was named "November Obsessions" but I found that soooo lame and uncreative, plus it didn't fit on the linking buttons because it was simply too long. So I was thinking about a new name and I wanted it to be related to my favorite video game series Resident Evil. After some days of brainstorming, I finally came up with "Room 402". Room 402 is an area located in the Raccoon General Hospital in the game "Resident Evil 3: Nemesis". After solving a puzzle, a safe can be found in Room 402; inside the safe is the Vaccine Base, which can stop spreading of the T-Virus when mixing it with the Vaccine Medium. I really liked this, plus I consider my fanlisting collective my personal "room" in the world wide web and it's a really short name that fits on all linking buttons - So that's how my collective got a new name xD.

{Fanlistings}    I started joining fanlistings around 2004 when I found these cute linking buttons on various blogs back then. But it wasn't until November 2007 until I began building them myself. When I was browsing the Sailor Moon fanlistings at TAFL, I saw that there was no longer one for Kunzite, my favorite character from Sailor Moon. So after thinking about it for a while (after all, I had no idea of building and running a fanlisting), I finally caved and applied. And only a minute later, I also applied for the relationship between Sailor Venus & Kunzite from Sailor Moon as well because the previous fanlisting was also gone. Sailor Venus & Kunzite then also became my first ever fanlisting while Kunzite became my second one. After opening those two, I had tasted blood and wanted more and you can imagine the rest, right? ;)

I also joined both message boards at TFL and TAFL, and in December 2009 I became a trouble checker at TFL and a few months later also at TAFL. I checked for Relationships: Book/Movie, Animation and Games at TFL and Relationships at TAFL before completely stepping down in 2013. Back then my RL and Job were quite busy so I had less time than before. Plus, I became a category staffer myself in October 2011. Currently, I'm staffing three full categories at TFL: Arts and Design, Food/Drinks and Toys/Collectibles. In October 2015 I also became a category staffer for TAFL where I have taken over the full Music & Songs category as well as the full Rivalries category in June 2016. I'm also a trouble checker again and am currently working for Songs: Bands/Groups N-Z.
