I have been slowly working on graphics for the website. The process is slow, because I also have a day job that takes up most of my time. Not to mention I am working on several other things at the same time. So much to do so little time! Anyway, what's new with the site?
Not much else has been done. I received approval from Den of Angels to advertise this site in the news section. YAY! I have also been researching alternatives to the system DFF has, just in case the project gets to big for its britches. :)
Until next time!
I was advertising my database when I was contacted about another database! Currently, they only have a google spreadsheet available and are working on a website. You can find their spreadsheet here:
What does this mean for the future of DFF?
We have decided to collaborate! For now, it means a huge influx of data. They are also working on a website, but it is not currently available to the public. We have exchanged ideas and both sites have or will incorporate features from each database. Most of everything was the same anyway! <3
When they get their site up and running, there will simply be two databases, or three, or four....depending on how many more pop up. I think this is great as it provides more tools and options to the community. The more databases, the less chance of all this information disappearing!
On another note, my free plan only allows me to add 1,500 records to my database and BJD Size Comparison (BSC for short). That means I will need to upgrade my plan and pay money. For now I am covering the expenses out of my pocket, and will have to take donations.
Why not find a different solutions that cheaper or free?
This solution allows anyone to add to the database with a simple form and the information is updated immediately. There is no coding involved so everything from A-Z can be change quickly and efficiently! However, I am always open to suggestions!
I have been missing the old doll feature search website from years ago (dollection.fi), which went MIA due to the owner no longer being in the BJD hobby. I have been thinking about making a database for a long time, I just never knew where to begin. I created a Flickr group many years ago to help recreate the "dollection" drag and drop compare feature, but I never really did anything with it. With new technologies, it is now easier than ever to create such a database without the need for knowing how to code!
Right now, there are practically no entries in the database. I have added a few as examples, but I am going to need the help of the community to see this idea into fruition.
I created the initial database on March 8, 2021 and posted it on the Den of Angels website. I received feedback and suggestions and the DFF has already changed for the better (hopefully) because of this suggestions!
I hope that this database keep evolving to get bigger, better, and more helpful so that everyone can find their dream dolls.
