Shining Force Central - re-designed

Posted by Moogie on 18th July 2001 at 12:00pm
Well, it's been just over a month in the making, but it's finally here :) Shining Force Central is now officially re-designed and looking better than ever (if I do say so myself!). I can't help but feel I've forgotten something... but I'm sure I'll soon find what it is, if I have. If you find any broken links on the site, please let me know!
The site is now database driven, meaning that it's much quicker easier for me to add and remove links... which in theory means I should be able to update more often. Shining Force Central currently has 231 sites listed in its directory.

I took some time off work and scanned in loads of Shining artwork, which can be accessed by clicking on the name of the game to the left, and then selecting the artwork link on the right side of the page that loads. I'm sure you'll find your way around the site quite well!

Each game now has artwork, postcards and desktop wallpaper (plenty more to come, but enough to keep you going for now, methinks). I've also included high resolution (300DPI) scans of all the game/soundtrack covers, inlays, CDs etc. For those of you who haven't been here for a while, there's a new forum (as of May) which is really active. I finally updated my collection too!

There are going to be more features added to the site over the coming weeks/months/years *grins* At the moment I plan to have an MP3 of the fortnight, poll of the fortnight, comic of the fortnight and a contest every month. So, you can be sure I'll be updating more frequently! I'll also be in the forums pretty much every day, so feel free to drop by if you want to ask me anything.

Can you help?
With regards to the contests.... I'm trying to think of some cool prizes I can offer, but obviously I'm on a budget. I've got a few ideas, but it's going to end up costing me a fair bit of money - can anyone suggest any ways to make some money from this site, to put towards prizes? I'm not allowed to use banners, and most of the Pay Per Search schemes have turned my site down :(
