The 10,000th candle

Filed under: Uncategorized — artwells @ 7:29 am

The 10,000th candle was lit in nshrine.com at Fri, 18 Jul 2008 09:38:25 GMT. It was in the Bumblebee Shrine and was accompanied by the dedication “Voor Syl”.

It’s been a great 10,000 candles. I’m looking forward to making room for millions more.

Advertising Free Shrines For A Week

Filed under: announce — artwells @ 8:36 pm

Thanks to all of you, nshrine.com is becoming a success.  To celebrate several minor milestones this week, I’ve made all current shrines advertising free for a week.  Those of you that have ad-free shrines already will have one free week added.

To learn how to keep your shrines ad-free status, you can click on the “Keep Ads Off This Shrine” button on any ad-free shrine.  (In shrines with advertisements, you will be able to find this information through the “Remove Ads From This Shrine” button.)  If you don’t want to have the Keep/Remove buttons in your shrine, you can block this through the “Change Shrine Settings”.

If you haven’t checked your shrine out in a while, or haven’t visited others, now is a good time.  You can start here:
If you haven’t got any shrines yet, get started

Thanks again for using nshrine and spreading the word.

Alphabetical Listings of Shrines

Filed under: Uncategorized — artwells @ 9:55 pm

Growth is steady and great input is coming in. New tools are in the works and the nshrine experience keeps getting better.

I’ve just launched a simple listing of all publicly-available shrines. Many shrines have opted-out of listing, as is completely understandable. Hopefully we can soon offer greater privacy through access control. For now, shrines may be removed from the directory by “Change Shrine Settings” in the shrine editor.

According to the settings the shrine creator gives, some shrines welcome candles from all, some from just nshrine members, some from friends only, and some just from the creator. Browse around and respect a new shrine or two with a candle: Visit the Shrines Page.
