Domino Back

If you did visit the Domino, you will notice that animalcollective.org is actually mentioned in their Links section as a “Fan Site” which is very nice of them, so thanks Domino.

Wiki & Upgrade

I’ve recently installed MediaWiki on this site, as some of you have maybe noticed, there are new “Wiki” links on the top and bottom navigation bars, the decision to include a Wiki was made after I had posted a thread in the forum several weeks ago. The Main purpose will be so that anyone can edit the pages, unlike the main site, and can start a sub-site of sorts, for a Gig-o-Graphy section, which is to track and list any and all shows that the band has played with additions of member reviews and photos, and the Gets section will be the place where anyone can download the files as well as the Gallery.

To edit and create pages, you must first register the Wiki.

Additionally, the news system (wordpress) has been upgraded to 2.50.

Water Curses & News Writters

A few days ago, Water Curses was leaked on the web, which may or may not be a bad thing according to your own personal views, but in any case I updated the discography section with it, though there is some info missing like catalog number, and whatnot. More discussion in the forum »

Writing

Additionally, if you would like to be a registered news writer for Animal Collective Org, pleace feel free to register under the META heading on the left, and contact me in the forum.

If you are interested, please do so. You can write anything on the band that is up-in-coming or that is important for people to follow up on such as tour dates and releases (or even advances, as above); however, it would all be pro-bono (no pay) and voluntary, but would be greatly appreciated by me.

Page Comments

I’ve recently added some new forms in the Lyrics and Discography sections, in order to get feedback from people, on what you think of the song or album, for subjective ideas as if you like that song/album or not, if there are any corrections to be made, etc.

Anyone can add comments as long as they answer the required question, and the pages will display it.

Welcome Home, “Spirit”

Animal Collective Org (not an official AC site) is still in the process of being completed, however you can still drop by and look around, there may be a few kinks here and there, and some info may even me missing, such as the Biography. However, everything will get sorted out eventually.

Stay a while, join the community, download some live tracks or video if you don’t have them yet, even submit some by posting links in the forum. The Gallery is still not up, but if you have some pictures you’ve taken at a show and you would like to post them, with your permission we would like to host them, as we want to have a live show photographic archive, or any collective pictures that you may have.
