91.8 The Fan’s Birthday Bash — Streaming Directory

Posted on Jan 06 2011

Day four has come upon us and while we’ve eaten all the cake, our speakers are still cranked to eleven as we party the night away. We’re nearing the end of this celebration, but it doesn’t mean you should be shedding any tears considering the new addition revealed after the jump.

One thing we’ve talked about extensively for as long as 91.8 The Fan’s existence was our directory. For those not in the know, before we had a radio our site was made up of our show iStalk and updates to where users could find legal ways to consume the media we all know and love. The directory as it was still exists, but has only be accessible by staff. After evaluating what we had and planning out exactly what we were doing when the radio was to go up, we decided to take the list down until we could bring it back with a punch. What we’ve done is essentially made the directory a separate entity, and before Kanashimi knew what she was doing the code was essentially beyond her. We’ve pulled plenty of strings and done our best to complete the project regardless with all the features we really knew users wanted.

91.8 The Fan can proudly announce that the first phase of the directory will be going live by the end of the month for Fanatics. What Fanatics can expect is the skeleton to the directory, which means it will be very plain at first glance. In this beta release it will have all of its functions instigated one by one for testing such as series summaries, episode summaries, links to legal streaming sites, places to buy these items, single previews, voice actor lists, and more. This version will be stable for use, but will also help us iron out any bugs that come forth.

The prototype above was made during development stages and does not represent the official release.

Before the final release we will be adding some skin to the directory. We can’t give an exact estimate as to when it will be available to the public, but we can promise that it won’t be released until it’s ready. In addition, this is only step one as said previously, which means we hope to expand the directory to other things besides just legal streaming. We’ve enlisted the help of a few voice actors to aid in our next phrase, which will focus majorly on them and their work, but until then it would be best not to give too much away. We’re thankful for your everlasting patience with this project, and we’re very happy to announce it finally to you.

Tomorrow is the end of our birthday bash, and tomorrow is one that is very dear to our staff’s hearts.
