If you haven't read the Blog before this, called "Wenganator's Site", please do so first. Click here.
Ok, so I've been experimenting around with some chat room websites, and I've determined that one of the best is at xat.com. So I've created an account there, and created a chat room (as well as a chat group) for Wengantor's Site Members. Now, you don't have to create an account at xat.com to access the chat room, since I think it's kind of inconvenient for everyone to do that. Anyways, all you have to do is go to the chat room, and you can create a screen name there before you chat if you want to. No need to make any accounts or anything, xat.com should recognize your computer the next time you go there, and your chosen screen name should pop up the next time. If you want to make an account though, that's totally fine, too.
Anyways, here is the link: http://xat.com/Wenganator
I have been fiddling around with the chat room for a little while with Nightwish, one of our moderators, and it seems that the chat room is ready to go. There are a lot of functions you can try to figure out yourself, like setting a profile picture or turning the language filter on/off. If you need any help, feel free to contact myself, or Nightwish. I'm sure as everyone gets accustomed to the chat room, more people can help the newcomers.
Remember, this is just a place for faster chat service between Wengantor's Site members, or really, anyone. You can invite your friends to go there to chat; I don't mind. You can even link them here. But I think this is a great new application in accordance with this site. Tell me what you think about it, and we'll work out any bugs that might appear.
P.S. Don't forget to vote here!

UPDATE: The new vote requirement is 15. I just realized we only have 39 members... if this site does go back up, we're going to do some major advertisement.
Wow... it's been a really long time since the last blog post. And any activity on this site.
So, lately, I've been looking through all this old stuff on this site... and it's brought back a lot of memories. I never really "concluded" this site, and for the past year or so, this site has pretty much gone into the trash.
I've actually gotten a few emails about re-starting Wenganator's Site (first one dating back half a year ago, lol), but I just don't think this site will ever be very active in the future. As some of you remember, we were getting 200 views a day at the "climax" of this website, and in all, more than 1800 hits.
But then again, this website has been around for a while:
Posted by wenganator on September 2, 2009 at 3:56 PM
Yes... there's been a long history behind this website.
What was that? A year and a half ago? Wow. Time flies.
So, I'm asking for a poll. If you want this site to continue, vote yes. If you don't think it'll survive, vote no. But please do not refrain from voting. One of the key things I'm looking for is to see how many viewers this site can draw in even if it means sending out an invitation via Webs.com.
Simply leave your vote as a comment. Yes or No. Y or N. I don't care. Just vote. I am looking for 20 "Yes" votes. There is no specific time limit I have set, but it has to be a reasonable time - if we can generate 20 votes in 2 weeks, I will start managing the site. If not, then please think of this as a formal conclusion to Wenganator.webs.com. In either scenario, it's been a blast.
(By the way, I know we had the "Clan" thing going... as well as RP rooms starting to be opened. If you want them to continue, please say so in your comments... I need some feedback.)
Note: "Concluding" this website doesn't mean I'll just delete the whole thing from the Webs mainframe... it just means I'll stop managing (like what's been happening recently). This is pretty much the only chance for the website to become more lively - otherwise it'll just be a thing of the past.

Allmightywarrior is moving, so he put up a short "good-bye" post, titled "All Hail Allmightywarrior"
Okay, that being said, I will finish up all the contest/points stuff (besides the Banner Contest) later this week, possibly on Saturday or Sunday.
And LM, no, I don't know what you're talking about.
|Posted by Wenganator on February 1, 2010 at 6:06 PM||comments (13)|
Let me just say this before anything else: WOW. ALL the entries for the Banner Contest have been GREAT. I love how you guys are really just clicking with these banners and Wenganator's Site in general!
I will be extending the due date until next Monday, February 8, 2010 @ 12:00 A.M. EST.
Wow, the past few days have been pretty much a sit-down-smack-in-the-face kind of day. Yeah; I've been really busy of late.
I'm going to keep this short, because I've already had several long Blogs in a row, and I don't want to bore you. Pahh. I doubt there's even that many people reading this.
Oh wells. I still like my site; I just want to thank you guys for coming on once in a while and checking it; it really means a lot to me.

Okay, so here's an epic quote (from me). All you have to do is who it's talking about (it's about two people ON THIS SITE), and you'll earn 15 points for your Clan, and you'll receive this very interesting chat I had with one of these people.
Disclaimer: The prize may not actually be the chat. But something like that. Hey, I just got to post this Blog already.
"A materialistic fighter with dreams of blood and a girl "out of his leagues" who wants to stab me (which is entirely possible if she wanted to just run over here right now) -- what a "cute" couple; and yes, those are quote marks because I'm quoting the girl"

Edit: I have added a few more questions in the FAQ section.
Okay, so first piece of business: get the points update.
1.) PA gets a point for his team for the question on what thing had a grand opening last week at Sycamore Jr. High...the Spirit Store. +1 for Ice
2.) NWish redeemed himself with the question in Blog 60. +1 for Fire (they do not get the original set 2 points because it took a second "sort of" try)
3. NWish got the "PM me question" right first; PA got it second (that's all the entries I received). +5 for Fire; +2 for Ice
As you may have noticed, IceClan is dragging along quite a bit. So here is a new contest for IceClan to redeem themselves. Nevertheless, both Clans still get to participate, or else it wouldn't be fair for FireClan.
So this is how the contest will work: I will collect all entries at 12:00 A.M. Eastern Time on Monday, February 1, 2010. You are to create a banner that somehow represents this website, Wenganator's Site, by incorporating the words "Wenganator's Site" at the very least. Basically, you must make a banner out of any picture (I really don't care as long as it's appropriate) and include the words "Wenganator's Site". READ THE FAQs FOR MORE IMPORTANT DETAILS - MORE THAN 75% OF THE THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ARE IN THE FAQs!!!!! I will judge the banners based on this criteria:
1.) The banner is creative and attractive.
*2.) It includes the words "Wenganator's Site".
3.) The banner contains a catchy slogan about/relating to Wenganator's Site.
4.) It is reasonably sized; it can easily fit in a signature.
*5.) It is turned in on time.
(*ed requirements are REQUIRED or else you'll be automatically disqualified)
So, if I'm not good with MSP (Microsoft Paint), then how do I create a cool-looking banner? Well, there are many websites that can help you with this. For example, a very good picture/banner converter site that you can make an account for free is http://www.picnik.com.
When is this due, and how can I get it to you? Your banner design is due at EXACTLY 12:00 A.M. Easter Time on Monday, February 1, 2010. There are two ways to post your banners: You can PM me the link to it (you're going to have to upload it on a website, like http://www.imageshack.us, so that there is a way we can incorporate it into coding), or post the link as a comment here (I prefer you do the second way).
Will there be a prize of sorts for the contest winner(s)? Or is it just points for your Clan? Good question. You see, I haven't got everything sorted out yet but there will be another prize besides just points for your Clan for FIRST AND SECOND PLACE. This will probably be something to do with the RP, but trust me, the prize is VERY GOOD.
As for points, this is how they're going to be distributed:
20 points for first place
10 points for second place
4 points for any other participant
This is a very good way to earn points FAST.
How many entries can I enter? You may enter up to 3 entries. But only your best scoring banner will be counted, unless there are so few entries that to do this would make the contest very dull.
Can I be classified as Anonymous if I don't want people to know I made a certain banner? Certainly. In this case, just PM me the link of the banner, tell me you want to be featured as Anonymous, and I'll do it!
Can I submit a banner that was made by me and another person; in other words, can I form a team with someone else for this contest? Sure, but if you win, you will have to split the prize in half with your partner, just to give you a heads up.
Will there be any ties? No, I will (try) to pick a definite winner...if all comes down to all, then there will be a tie in second or lower place, not for first for sure.
Is there an example you could show me? Yes, definitely. I will post an example right at the bottom of the contest section of the blog, and any other person's banner that they have submitted, so you can get the feel of what you need to do.
Hope this FAQ was somewhat helpful. If you need more help, feel free to just add a comment here, or PM me.
Example: Okay, so I know this is kinda unrelated to Wenganator's Site, but I threw it together in a matter of minutes...so don't exactly follow my idea; you won't win, trust me.
Current Entries: Wenganator -
Lightning Moon -
Echo Skey -
Now, on to the rest of my Blog.
You know, I've noticed that lately I've been making REALLY long blogs. To the point that it would just be better if I did a bunch of short ones. Oh well.
Anyways, to tell you about some of the things that have happened in my life lately (if you're a person like NWish, just skip this list and continue reading):
- Before Thursday I've never been on a ski lift, so my ski instructor at Perfect North decides for me to go down the green lift twice, and then takes me (and Peter Tosh) up the orange lift.
**** it was scary. Went down it TWICE (both directions). Somehow I survived. (But then again, I was like swerving clear of ever jump there was)
- Got a 100 on my math semester exam (YAY)
- Made the MATHCOUNTS team (sorry Nimit for all those tie-breakers...)
- Learned how to waste 10 minutes typing up this blog while I'm thinking of what to type.
- Hope that Webs doesn't delete this.
Haha, a conversation I had with Ynis the other day:
Ynis: So, what does that '<3' mean in her username anyways?
Wenganator: Huh, you don't know? It's just a heart sign sideways.
Ynis: *dawn of understanding* OHHHHHH...I always thought it meant "Shimmer less than 3"
Wenganator: Lol, no, it's just a heart.
Ynis: You know what it should really mean? Shimmer has an IQ LESS THAN 3!!!
And then I was cracking up, unable to control myself, and...yeah. I won't bore you with any more of my
So...I've updated all the mod stuff...except for one thing
@Shade: Could you just leave a comment here telling me if you want the mod status to be on your ShadeStar account or the Wangster Gangster account?
Okay, I'm going to go finish up some hw now. I'll edit this Blog if I realize I forgot to put something up.
(Changed my screen name, btw, in case you were wondering...I might change it again soon)
|Posted by ynis on January 23, 2010 at 2:08 PM||comments (0)|
Shimmer's IQ < 3
Actually it is 1/12

@NWish and most everyone somehow: You're wrong. You told me the right answer at school, but you didn't put the answer you wished to put on here. So I'll give you another chance. But if someone else answers it (in IceClan), they will win 5 points for their Clan, instead of the 1 you can only receive even if you get it right now.
Changed screen name to The Importance of Zero.
End of Semester (last day) tomorrow. Yay. But Mrs. Stubblebine's making us clean up the art room while all the other teachers (for art) are throwing a party. XP
Ski Club tomorrow. Should be fun, since no school on Friday (HAHA LIVE WITH THAT MASONARDS)
And just to prove my hate of Mason, and all Masonards (Disclaimer: Sorry LM, but I'm not sorry. You're a Masonard now, so ha.), I will now give another trivia question that only Sycamorenites (probably) can answer. (BTW, anyone's still allowed to answer the one in Blog 60, that is if NWish doesn't get there first...specifically IceClan; FireClan is out except 'Wish now.)
What "grand opening" is occured/occuring today (Wednesday) and tomorrow (Thursday)?
Ha, take that Mason.
Another Disclaimer: Although I do hate Mason, there are still some good friends I have over there. For example, JBoy on this site, and Awesome Kid, who was going to be a mod but Webs was being an a** and didn't let him make an account.
Phbtbtbtbtb. Even Webs hates Mason. XD
I don't know why this Blog is so long. Guess I'm just bored.
I will be updating the moderator/highest-ranked member list soon. Probably on Friday when I have no school.
Yeah, I'm too lazy to log onto my Webs account to change everything, so yeah. I'll do it later. "Never put off to tomorrow what you can put off the day after that" -- some random (famous) dude
THE IMPORTANCE OF ZEROOOOOO----.....
Note to self: Okay, I'll type up that essay later
And just as a little bonus for all you who read to the end and check this site (somewhat) regularily~
Just PM me the following (preferably to my "Importance of Zero" account or whatever, just not to this one) to get bonus points for your Clan, first person gets their Clan 5 points, rest of the people get their clan 2 points:
I IS SMART. I GUESSED IT. YAYZA. NOW i WiLl Go Do SoMeThInG productive. Like go on the Forums secition! WHEEHEEE
Oh, and just do it. Okay, see you guys later (I'll be trying to fix up the site; Webs has been acting oddly lately (again) ).
