500 Shrines and Free Gift Candles

Filed under: announce — artwells @ 3:52 pm

This morning nshrine began hosting 500 shrines. Though shrines are added and removed every day, today marks the first day that over 500 shrines were active at once.

To celebrate, each nshrine member qualifies for a free “gift candle”. Gift candles allow you to remove advertising and enable privacy for the shrine of your choice for one week.

Orange Candles of Joy

Filed under: announce — artwells @ 9:22 pm

Orange candles, with the suggested meaning of “Joy”, have been added to the candle selection on all shrines on nshrine.com. We’ve also received suggestions in to make the candle colors configurable by the shrine’s maintainer. That should be a feature in the near future, but this color came as a quick possibility at just the right time.

Thanks to Serendipity, maintainer of the InfinitePossibility shrine, for the suggestion. Do you have a suggestion? Email artwells@nshrine.com with your thoughts.

25,000 candles and growing

Filed under: announce — artwells @ 11:39 am

This morning, <a href=”http://artwells.com/”>nshrine.com</a> got its 25,000th candle placed.  Though this milestone is a big one, there is still so much more to create and play with on this site.  Growth and positive feedback has been steady and encouraging.  Thank you all!  To celebrate, I’ve turned off all shrine ads for the next couple days.

Private Shrines Available Now

Filed under: announce — artwells @ 1:08 pm

At long last, nshrine is offering privacy settings for your shrines.  This means you can set a shrine to allow only yourself, only your friends, or only nshrine members to see your shrine and its candles. The default will allow anyone to see your shrine, as it has been to this point.  You can still idependently limit candle placing to yourself, friends or members.

This new feature will be available only to advertising free shrines after December 1st of this year, so give it a try for free this month and see if it’s right for you.
