Crimson Glass 2020 Facelift

On September 19, 2020, Crimson Glass turns eighteen years old. It’s been online in its current form (as a WordPress blog) since January 2014. In the last six years, it’s expanded to encompass not only all my fanfiction, but tangential projects like a YouTube channel, a General Hospital section, as well as tons of resources for readers and writers.

It’s also insanely messy and out of date in a lot of places. My goal before January 2021 is to overhaul the majority of the site and clean it up so that it’s more organized and uniform. It’s been a very slow process this summer, but I’ve made a lot of great strides. Below is an expansive to-do list for all the plans and features I’m overhauling.

Major Improvements

  1. Move the site to new domain (http://www.crimsonglass.org).
  2. Create subsites for long stories and series.
  3. Overhaul and merge Alternate History stories onto one primary page.
  4. Overhaul and merge Alternate Universe stories onto one primary page.
  5. Complete General Hospital section
  6. Complete YouTube video section.
  7. New main site theme
  8. Organize screencap and video clip collection.

Screencaps & Videos

I get my DVD edits from CurlyQGrl, Stacey, who has been in the GH community for decades. You should check out her site for GH and other soaps going back to the 70s! So my edits are divided by DVD numbers, then the titles on the actual disc. When I screencap, I screencap in batch mode by title and disc. That’s where the numbers come from in this list.

  1. Make sure DVD collection is completely ripped to my hard drive.
  2. Screencap all DVDs.
