I've got some Icethetics-related news for this morning. First, Third Jersey Central is complete, as far as the NHL is concerned. As time goes on, I'll be adding relevant pages for the AHL and ECHL as well as a bonus jerseys area of 3JC where we can keep track of other special sweaters, like those for the Winter Classic and such.
However, before that I need to get the Flashback '98 logo tournament back up and running. It's another one of those things where I'm just trying to figure out the best way to build the page. Hopefully I'll have that done before the end of the week.
I'm doing something new with the RSS feeds. Those of you who have subscribed already know. I've never liked include the full post in the syndication feeds because if you really want to know what it's about, you should drop by the site and see it. So now I'm include a one or two line teaser in the feed. This is better than having only the post title.
You can also see comments via RSS. I'm not sure if I've mentioned this, but on all new posts, comments close after two weeks. So if you've got something to say, you have 14 days to do it. I'm setting it up this way because usually after a week, once the post disappears from the main page, nobody comments on it anymore anyway.
In addition, here's some other stuff I'm working. We'll have a concept art section with Featured Artists. You'll be able to enjoy the complete works of guys like Matt (aka GhettoFarmBoy), Sigma Kappa, Emilis Acus, Mike Ivall, and many others.
A lot of folks have emailed me about having an Icethetics artist design a logo for their local team. I'm building a section that will be sort of a bulletin board for people in need of logos. I'll post their information and anyone interested in helping them out can send in their work. More info on that later.
I'm also going to start putting together a comprehensive section on goalie masks which should be interesting. I'm hoping to make it the biggest goalie mask database on the web. All in time, though. I'm also going to dig into the archives and put together pages on each of our past logo tournaments — who won and how they did it.
All that and more. And if you have any questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to email me any time.
