Gothic What's New

12 October 2002: Did lots of random work in the last couple years, but recently revamped the club database system with a new format, and started the converstion of the content to XHTML/CSS.


1 September 2000: Finally removed refernces to the former hosts at dnx.com and gothic.acs.csulb.edu from the home page, and did a few tweaks to the templates for the club listing, which seems to be the most popular area now.


9 July 1999: So, this site does actually have updates more often than every six months, but I dont always list the minor things like the regular changes to the club listing. I did however add a couple interviews to the Text Files area today.


23 November 1998: Added the ability to cross link sections in the "Resources" section so some subject can now be a subsection of multiple areas (again, like Yahoo).


12 April 1998: Fixed a few more of the header/footers and remove the text versions of the photo indexes in the NetGoths area.

8 April 1998: Gave the site a newish look with a change in the header/footer of most pages, and a new style sheet. There are some pages in the NetGoth area and the Text Files area, but most are done. The new automated, yahoo-like "Resources" section has been running for a few weeks now as well.


18 February 1998: Added the "You Might be a goth if ..." article to the Text section.

5 December 1997: Still addding new more and more new entries to the club listing. Changed some wording on the main page and the club page.


25 November 1997: Finally got around to totally revamping the club database system. Its now more cgi driven and easier to update. Each club has its own page generated and the update form is automatically filled with the old data to correct. I've moved over a good chunk of the old listings I thought were still valid.

6 November 1997: Edited the club listings for New Orleans, added a few bands to the resources page.

30 June 1996: Fixed the club submission form so that it actually works again. Also temporarily tweaked the java script at the bottom of each file so new netscape 3.0b's dont gag on it. Added a few clubs as well.


23 February 1996: The domain name request finally went thru so I'm starting the transition to the new address. Hopefully I'll never have to do this again now. vamp.org here we come.

14 November 1995: Added a loveliescrushing interview from Dreampop to the Text Files section. Also did a bunch more clubs but I always forget to add a mention here. Basically the club section is always in flux now. Amazing what 30k/hits a day will generate.

Its now vamp@vamp.org or vamp@dimensionx.com. They're all the same machines. Figured we had to be cool like Netscape and get multiple domains that just refer to the exact same machines. Other various cosmetic changes that most people will also never notice fixed as well.
