STAFF ADDITION

Composer here, introducing what I hope will be the first of many contributors to the site, lilandyk.  Some of you may know him by his forum handle DaLadyBugMan, while others know him as the webmaster/creator of the Slenderbloggins fan site and author of several slenderblogs.  I’ll let him introduce himself more in a post, just wanted to say, it’s nice to have you on board!

On a Roll

So much got done since last post, I love it.

- Continued to add more followed series, in both both video and text formats.  A reminder, if you don’t see your content here and want it on here, submit at admin@slendermanmythos.com.  Contact through the same e-mail if you want content removed.

- Marble Hornets and EverymanHYBRID hub pages are open.  By the time this queued post goes through, they might not be alone, I’ll have to see how much time I’ve got.

- The first round of submitted blogs are now up.  Check for newest blogs on the “Read” tab or look up specific ones in the Blog Index.

- Added the Slender Man Reddit to the Resources tab.

- Instituted a “Fandom” tab with subcategories for fan videos, fan fiction, fan art, and slender parodies.

Here’s to another productive week.

[REDACTED]! We’ll do it live!

And we are public.  I MIGHT have jumped the gun a bit… half of me is trying to get me to stay up all night and work on getting the vlog pages done.  And the other half wants me to sleep.

So, what’s new in this update?

The about and podcast pages are done.
The wiki listings have been consolidated under the resources page, while expanding their scope to include an additional wiki, Slender Man’s “Know Your Meme” page and the Slender Man Mythos TV tropes.  The resources page now also links out to a variety of information sources and OOG hangouts.

And of course, posting content like mad.

The next big undertaking will be the vlog pages, and they will take time, so I thank you in advance for your patience.

Entering Functional Territory

Making some headway here.  Still working some kinks out of the video series pages and there’s a lot to add, but the setup is done enough that I’ve begun posting new uploads.  For simplicity, I’m queuing the posts for now, but we’ll see if I keep that pattern in the future.

Videos from March 1, 2012 and onwards will be posted here when I noticed them, with attempts to properly update at least twice a week.  You can view a feed of just new videos from the “watch” button on the menu, as well as look for videos from a specific series by clicking the tag with the series name on any post.  I’ll have a list of category links in the future that you can use to look up any specific series.

I may eventually go back and produce “digest” posts with either summaries or link lists for that series.  But that’s a ways off; there’s still much work to be done.

A curse upon Jquery and WordPress’s distaste for it.

HELLOWORLD

I doubt many of you are going to be seeing this site in it’s current, fragmentary state. If I’ve personally given you the URL in search of feedback, I need no introduction. If you’ve somehow stumbled onto this site, be it through a leak or just to check and see if there’s anything there, well…

I’m the webmaster/creator of this website, aka The Composer. And this is quite obviously, a fan-site for the Slender Man Mythos. I’m currently taking a Web Design Practicum class in university and this is to be one of my projects. I was required to purchase hosting and a domain name and the project was self directed. So I figured why not create a site for something I’m so heavily involved in, something that I wouldn’t mind continuing once the course was over. So… Slendermanmythos.com.

I will continue to add content to this site over time. After an acceptable amount of the features are online, presentable and functioning I’ll start spreading this place around. But for now, mum’s the word. If you want a preview of what some of the final product will look like, check out the everymanHYRID page for a sample of what’s to come.
