23 December 2003

Last update of this year!!!  Heads up for those of you don't know, I'm shutting the site down from the 27th until launch date (January 3rd 2004) so Miss Special and I can make the final changes.  Some cool stuff is going to be added to the site not just over the 27th-3rd period, but throughout next year I'll be adding new features.  Since there's been more of a request and interest in them, the Fan Art Awards will take place sometime next year.  I'll try and schedule them when American schools have a holiday break so most of you will have more time on your hands. :)

-----------------------

Skyfire sent in two episode reviews, but I am going to put them up next update along with some more episode reviews I'm working on.

Some art nominations were sent in, and while the art Awards won't take place for a while, you can still nominate until we have ALL decided on a hood date for next year.

The last winner for the Pictures and Captions competition of 2003 is Hacker. Well done!

No new poll this update.  Results for previous poll: 'Which Maximal would look best as Santa's Elf?' 64% of the votes went to Rattrap, 18% to Rhinox and 9% to Silverbolt and the last 9% to Airazor.

New Stuff:

Lots of cool art by Sinead this update!  Check it out!

Another adorable chibi by Nurannoniel is up in her section.

Solar Blaze (HDW) has also sent in a chibi, another cute Dinobot takes the place of the old one on her chibi page.

Miss Special sent in the next part of the intriguing 'Doomcat Chronicles'.

Sinead has sent in the next fic in the 'Living in Death' series.

Oh and, because I won't be updating on Christmas, here's an early MERRY CHRISTMAS! from me!  :)


 

13 December 2003

Maybe some of you will have noticed that I didn't put up the poll for the Fan Art Awards on Wednesday.  That's because I'm calling it off.

There's not been one art nomination in over two months.  Two categories only have one nomination each.  I've spent hours and hours trying to get up all the backlogged art so that those artists stood a chance.  I mean, come on people! There are 257 art pieces and web graphics and no one can send in at least one nomination?  I'm tired of begging everyone.  I'm not a big artist at this site, this is YOUR awards, and unless someone shows more interest in it than me, I'm just not wasting my time on it.  Sorry to sound so miserable, but I'm disappointed.

-----------------------

We received no more captions this past week for the Pictures and Captions competition.  So you can vote now at the Pictures and Captions page.

There's a new poll at the Beast Wars express pageResults for previous poll: 'Which Predacon would look best in a santa suit?' 79% of the votes went to Megatron, 14% went to Rampage and 7% to Inferno.

New Stuff:

Sinead has sent in another art piece, which can be viewed here.  She also made a lovely Chritsmas card for all of us, and it's up on its own special page here.

A coloured version of Skyfire's "Dinobot as a Human" drawing can be seen here.

I got bored and made a Tigerhawk graphic, which is located here.

Miss Special sent in the next part of the Evil Eye series.

Sinead has sent in the next fic in the 'Living in Death' series, as well as 4 more chapters to Taiyoo Soshite Tsuki.

-

I'm leaving on Monday the 15th and will be gone for a week, so the next update will be on Monday the 22nd.


 

6 December 2003

Yay!  Only 18 days before Christmas Eve!

Ta da!

Well, layout design three won by a long shot.  Guess we'll be sticking with the dark theme for next year, then.  Naturally, there will be lots of exciting new changes OTHER than the layout as well.  So be happy!!

-----------------------

One caption has been added to the Pictures and Captions competition.  This is your last week to send in caps!

There's a new poll at the Beast Wars express pageResults for previous poll: Design 1 got 18% of the votes, Design 2 as is got 9%, Design 2 with another colour got 9% and Design 3 won with 64%.

Oh and since you only have a few days left, please please please send in art nominations!  It's not a lot of effort to page through a bit of art and send an email with your favourites, but it was a huge effort for me last weekend where I spent hours and hours uploading all that art at once so those artists would have a chance for their art to be nominated.  And you know what?  There wasn't a single art nomination this past week, after all that.  :(

 

New Stuff:

The first in Sinead's new series is up this update.  

Lady Venom sent in part 5 of her hilarious fic "Tests, Quizzes, Robots and Killers Oh My!"

Miss Special has sent in part 9 of the Chronicles of the Doomcat.

There's a new web graphic by Lady Scale in her web graphics section.

There are lots of sketches from her fic "Learning to Walk Again", as well as a nifty shirt design with DB by Sinead

Skyfire's sent in two cool art pieces.  Depth Charge, and what he imagines Dinobot to look like as a human.

Miss Special  has sent in a funky pic of her characters from the Doomcat Chronicles playing in her backyard!


 

29 November 2003

Eeeeeeeeeeeee!  ::jumps for joy:::  :::does a cartwheel::::  :::falls:::  :::gets back up and types:::::

Important Good News!!!

We've got the site now, and guess what?!  I've already designed three different new layouts for next year, for y'all to choose!  Yup!  I've applied each design to what will be the main page next year.  PLEASE, everybody go have a looksee at this page.  Links to all three layouts will be there.  After you've seen them, click back to that page and vote!  Please note that none of the links will be working on the 3 layouts, because the idea is to give you a 'look' at what the layout will be and how it'll be applied to a page.  The poll's gonna be up for one week, so I can start working on applying the most popular layout to all the pages.

-----------------------

There's a new Character of the Month for December...yeah I know it's two days early, but the calendar doesn't always work in favour of updates.  And the poll didn't work properly either, so I just chose BA since I already had her character of the month bio done.

Some captions have been added for the Pictures and Captions competition.  We need more than what's currently up there, so be sure to send in your caps soon, if you want to enter.

There is no poll at the Beast Wars Express page, as it's being used for the layout choices.  Results for previous poll: 'Which Maximal had the coolest weaponry?'  Optimus and Depth Charge tied for a win, second was Rattrap and third was a tie between Dinobot, Rhinox and Silverbolt.

 

New Stuff:

Lotsa fics from Sinead this update.  Go to the Latest Fan Fiction page to see which they are.

Lady Venom's fic at the Console has been added to her section.

Lord Skyfire has sent in a fic as well!

Now for what you've alllllll been waiting for.  The art!

Here's all the art that's been backlogged including all the art from the 12 October update that failed to work (stupid topcities...:::mumble grumble::::):

3 art pieces by Lady Scale is up in her FV art section.

Two art pieces by Lady Venom is up in her section.   

Two art pieces by Sinead are also up this update.  

The three artworks by Darkfire are now working in her section.

Nurann's sent in a bigger, better version of her Chibi Optimus.

The links to Skyfire's coloured Rhinox and Rhinox and Ima drawings are working.

All of Starath's art is now working.

Miss Special's art piece "Destroyer Angel and Spirit Share a Quiet Moment" is now working.

Hacker has sent in a pic as well.

I've created a War Art page in my art section, as now I've added another line drawing of a soldier, and added coloured versions of my first two.

 


 

26 November 2003

 

Mid-week update.

 

New Poll:

Vote for the next character of the month at the Character of the Month page!

 

!   Important News:   !

 

Today, according to the Fan Art Awards date, was supposed to be the deadline for Art nominations.  ::cough:: Well, blame me for this.  I forgot to give everyone the heads up!  The fact is, I'm going on holiday this December from roughly the 13th til the 21st.  Yeah... so that means I have no choice but to change the dates again.  This is good news for everyone anyway, because this weekend I'm putting up all the stored artwork, so now artists will have more of their art up and I'm giving everyone more time to nominate.

 

So the dates have changed from:

 

Nominating began 28th June, ends 26th November.  Voting takes place between 26th November and ends 13th December.  Awards takes place 20th December 2003.

 

TO:

 

Nominating began 28th June, ends 10th December. Voting takes place between 10th December and ends 22nd December.  Awards takes place 29th December 2003.

 

Please take note of this and please, when all the backlogged art is put up this update, nominate!  We could use a few more nominations in some categories anyway.

Anyway, I'm pleased that we finally have our new domain name. For those of you who have websites and have linked to me, please update the link, and use this pic if possible:

 

 

Check back this weekend for the first proper update at bwint.net

7 November 2003

 

Exams begin on Monday for me and I'll be writing every day (except weekends, and then I will be studying) for the next three weeks.  I write one or two exams ranging from 2-6 hours per day (for the first 2 weeks), so I won't have time to spend on the Internet.  However, my third week ends on Wednesday the 26th November.  Then I start my nice long holiday.  :)  'Til then, only small, Friday updates will happen.

Notes:

I'm proud to announce that Hacker has purchased the new site!  Many thanks to you Hacker, for helping out.  And thank you to all who contributed money!  Your help is much appreciated.

 

Miss Special will be the art director for next year!  Yup, she'll be handling all the site's art and art updates!

Lord Skyfire has been appointed a moderator to help out at the message board.  

 

Anyone who wants to help with the site next year, whether it be setting up polls or handling Pictures and Captions, Character of the Month bios etc. Please email me and let me know!  Any help next year (my last and busiest school year) will be welcome!!!

-----

There were some complications on getting the site's new domain name.  Although the site's new title remains Beast Wars International, the original URL we wanted was taken.  So the new URL will be www.bwint.net

 

Congratulations to Pacerpaw for winning the Pictures and Captions competition.

Amber sent in some Beast Machines pics and caps which have their own section, linked at the Pictures and Captions page.

 

Because of my exams and the delay of art updates, the Fan Art Award dates have been moved forward.  Click here to find out what they are now. If there are any problems with the dates, let me know.

 

There's a new poll at the Beast Wars Express page Results for previous poll: 'Do you think BW should have had more female characters?'  69% voted Yes, there should have been more females.  31% voted No, but they should have developed Airazor's character better.

25 October 2003

 

Good news: It's exactly 2 months 'til Christmas!

Not so good news: It's less than 3 weeks 'til my end-of-year exams.  :::bites nails nervously:::  Because I need to focus on my studies and discipline myself, it means I can't be on the Internet all Saturday (too distracting) so from next week onwards I'm going to update Friday nights (my time) so send in your goodies before Friday!  After exams are over on the 26th November, Saturday updates will continue.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 

 

Ok, I have kept up the poll at the Beast Wars Express page as I don't think everyone has had a chance to vote yet.

 

There are 2 new polls, however.

  Poll Number One: 'Vote for your favourite caption' for the Pictures and Captions competition.  :)

That one is up at the pictures and captions page. 

 

Poll Two is to vote for the new character of the month.  Go to the Character of the Month page to vote.

 

New Stuff:

 

0_o  Gosh, what a change.  From massive 12 hour updates to like...nothing.  

 

I finished my stand-alone (finally...) and you can read it here (linked at my Standalones page).

 

And...that's it.  ::is still in shock:::  I can't wait until we get the new site so I can start putting up all this art I've got stored!  


 

18 October 2003

 

Good news!  We have enough money for the site! All $60!  Yay!  So hopefully in a month's time all the art that was meant to be put up will be up.  Keep sending your art so I can store it so long.

 

________

 

There's a funky new poll!  We need to vote on a new name for the site when it moves to its new home!  (Soon you'll be voting for a new layout design.  I've got a few in the works.)  Check out the Beast Wars Express page and choose your favorite title from the list.

 

Results for previous poll: "What is Dinobot's favourite food?"  38% votes 'His clone', another 38% voted 'Rattrap steaks', 10% voted 'chicken chow mein', another 10% voted 'chocolate frosting' and 5% voted spaghetti.

 

 

There are quite a few captions for the Pictures and Captions competition.  If you haven't sent in one and would still like to, be sure to send it in before next update!

 

New Stuff:

 

Only one fic this update.  Dannn's sent in an interesting fic which looks into the past of some of the Beast Warriors.  Click here to read it.

---------------------------------

 

Ok, I know I put up a lot of stuff last update but I never posted it on this page because all the thumbnails to the art did not work.  I've decided to give you a link to what last update's page would have looked like because some of the stuff I put up did work and in the case of the thumbnails, you can just right click them, click hyperlink properties and type in the direct link in another window and it should work.  All this will be fixed when I get our new 400 megs of space.  Click here for the original 12 October update. - link no longer active.

 


 

11 October 2003

 

Announcement:

 

Sapphire's Beast Wars Website is fast running out of space.  I need $60 to buy more webspace and so far we have $40 either on the way or there in the account already.  Until I get that extra $20, I'm afraid I just have no more room at this account to put up artwork and graphics.  I've tried linking to other accounts but that won't work, so until I purchase the site's new home and the 400 megs extra space that comes with it, there will be no more art updates.  I'll upload fics and polls and competitions as normal.  Please, still send me your art so I can keep it in a safe folder and put it all up when the time is right.  :)

 

As a result of this, the Fan Art Awards will be moved forward to cater for the new art that'll come with the new site.  Feel free to nominate anyway.

________

 

New poll up at the BW Express page!  This one's by Miss Special with some help from Lady Scale and Amber.

Lady Scale has sent a great BW art piece, as well as more sims-generations.

 


 

6 September 2003

 

 

The Fan Fiction Awards have been post-phoned until the 20th of September.  The reason for this is, by today, I still had not received enough votes for the awards to work.  That reflects that there was not sufficient time for the voters to read enough fics and therefore cast votes in certain categories which lack votes altogether.  I am posting a message later today containing all the categories that need votes or have 3 or 4-way ties.  This will give everyone more time and hopefully more people can make it on the 20th.

 

 

There's a new poll up at the BW Express page.

 

There's a new Character of the Month!!  (I'm sure Miss Special is happy .)

 

There's 1 caption for the Pictures and Captions competition.  Come on, folks!  Send in your funnies!!

 

 

 

New Stuff:

 

Art by Lady Scale is up in her section, as well as some more sims in her Graphics section.

 

Liar has sent in part 2 to his Summer Storms series.

 

Miss Special has sent in another doomcat fic! Check it out!

 

I was in a rush today so I didn't get everything up.  I might add some more late tonight (my time), otherwise the rest will be up next update.


 

30 August 2003

 

Smaller update today.  

 

Note:  I have extended the voting date for the Fan Fiction Awards until September 5th.  Please send in more votes; at the moment I don't have enough for the awards to work. :(

24 August 2003

 

I am sure most of you would have heard about that killer virus/worm thing out on the Internet, causing havoc on millions of computers. It has been deemed the worst one yet and it is spreading itself through emails. I did not update on Saturday because I decided it was too risky to go online, and today I installed the latest version of Norton Antivirus available to me. However, I am not opening any emails with text attachments sent to me recently, just to be on the safe side. So, for today's update, only files (with attachments) I got up until Wednesday will be uploaded. I'm sorry, but I don't want to risk opening them just yet. The problem with this virus is, that you may have it without even knowing so and it automatically sends itself to everyone on your address list. The stuff that is not up today will probably be up next weekend, when I have downloaded some security patches and the latest firewalls to protect myself from the virus.  Also, rather not risk me getting it, and sending it to all of you unknowingly!

 

 

The winner of the Pictures and Captions competition:  Congratulations goes to Hacker!  Your caption is now the official one for that image.  :)

I have another funny image submitted by Starath that will be the new competition image for next update.

 

New poll up at the Beast Wars Express page.

 

Please note, you have until the end of this month to vote for the Fan Fiction Awards!  While I have received many votes for the popular categories, some of the quiet ones are seriously lacking votes.  So please, vote away!!

 

New Stuff:

 

There's a new stand-alone fan fic by Sharpshot plus a graphic to go with it!

 

A gorgeous art piece by Varyn is up!

 

Lots of new art by Lady Scale.  Her section has grown to three art pages, with a section now dedicated to the FVs!

You can now vote for your favourite caption for the Pictures and Captions competition. I had all sorts of poll problems today, so the actual poll is up in the Beast Wars Express section.

That's all for this update.  Read and nominate as you please, but be sure to send in the noms before the 16th!

 


 

10 August 2003

 

Yesterday was National Women's Day in South Africa and a public holiday to celebrate women.  So I shopped and took a rest.

 

There's a new poll at the Beast Wars Express page.

 

Results for previous poll:  In response to the question: "Who was the silliest Predacon?"  4 votes made Waspy the winner, with Quickstrike and Inferno tied for 2nd place.

 

The two audio files from Hacker's OTCC report are up.  They're linked on her report page and on the Media page.  Go listen to the Rubber Duckie song (sung by David Kaye) and hear Megatron's strange statement! lol

 

Lady Scale has sent in a whole lotta bloops and animation odds, so check 'em out!

 

One more nomination for the Fan Fic Awards.  Just to let you know, I'll be putting up a last-minute-fic update next week Wednesday, in case some of you have Fan Fic Award Category candidates you want up before the deadline.  Sadly, the category of 'Most Frightening' might have to be taken out, as there's only one nomination. :(

 

Two more screenshots by your truly are up here.

 

New Stuff:

 

Loads of stuff by Lady Scale up in her art section!

 

A short fan fic by me is up in my Stand Alone Fics section.

 

Part three of Miss Special's Doomcat Chronicles is up.

 

A fan fic by Nurannoniel is up in her new fan fic section.

 

A fic by a new writer, 'Liar', is up and linked at the Fan Fiction page.


 

26 July 2003

 

Lots of new stuff this update!

 

Results for poll:  The question was: 'In a straight fight between Inferno and Dinobot, who would win?" 27% voted  'Dinobot would slag him, for sure!' 18% voted 'Inferno would burrrrn him to ashes!' and 55% voted 'I reckon it'd be a tie.'

 

New Poll:  It's time to vote for the next Character of the Month.  Go to the Beast Wars Express page to vote. 

 

New Pictures and Captions competition with an image submitted by Lady Scale.  I'm trying it out this time.

 

Three animation odds, two of them are new (one has a picture) and there's an image for an older one.  I found one but you have Lady Scale to thank for the two with images!  Click here to see them.

 

Images of the toys of TM Rattrap, Optimus (season 1 and TM), Megatron, Inferno, Cheetor, Dinobot and Depth Charge are up in the Toy Reviews section, along with three new reviews by Lord Skyfire.  

 

Four episode reviews have been added!  Two by me, one by Pacerpaw and one by Kacheetah.  At the bottom of the episodes 'Go with the Flow' and 'The Agenda Part 3', you can spot some new images from those eps, taken with my dad's digital camera-phone. They're small and the quality's not great, but they belong to us! Mua ha ha!

 

There are some fan art and fan fic nominations.  Don't forget that voting starts 15th August.  It's only fair that if you want to vote for a fan fic in a particular category, you've read the other fics nominated in that same category, otherwise you're not giving the others a chance and maybe (if you read them) you'll think they are better than your original choice. So basically, if you want to vote fairly, start reading.  :)

 

New Stuff:

 

Two fan fics by Miss Special are up in her section.

 

Artwork and two web graphics by Lady Scale are up in her art section.

 

A picture of Arlaya from my recent fic 'The Pull of the Moon' by me is up in my artwork section.

 

A new Beast Wars collage is up in My Web Graphics section.

 

A fan fic by Skyfire is up in his section.

 

The first fic in my new series is up and linked at my fan fiction section.

 

A new section to the Media page has been added!  I've started up a page of my best screenshots.  Click here!

I'll be adding more next update and I'll select the best quality ones.

 

Having read just about all of the 130+ fics on this site, I've picked up a fair share of errors repeated in fics.  Therefore, I've gone and updated my 'Writing Tips' page with some of these common mistakes.  Please, before you send in a fic, even before you write your next one, if  you know your grammar and spelling isn't that hot, do yourself (and your editor and readers) a favour and check out this list.  I did it for those of you who battle a bit with spelling and such.  You know who you are!!

 


 

12 July 2003

 

Winner of the Pictures and Captions competition:  Congratulations to Dannn for winning the competition!  Your caption is now the official one for that picture, now up properly at the Pictures and Captions page.

The new pics 'n caps competition will start next week.  If you have pics that you'd like to see captioned, send them in.  Lady Scale has sent one which will be used for next week's competition, but you're welcome to send in any funnies of your own to be 'queued'.  lol

New poll:  Vote at the Beast Wars Express page

I've added a link to the Links page


 

5 July 2003

 

:::grumbles irritably::  Stupid 'Amazing Polls'.  Their service stinks!  I'm aware now (albeit a bit on the late side) that the poll for the Pictures and Captions competition doesn't work.  So, I've scrapped it and put in its place a bravenet.com poll, since those are more reliable.  ::sigh::  Sorry to make you all vote again, but you'll have to go to the Beast Wars Express page to re-cast your vote.  (That's the last time I use 'Amazing Polls' again. I'll stick to bravenet, even though their last one mysteriously didn't show up on the Beast Wars Express page....)

 

Lady Scale found some more images where BW Bloops and Animation odds can clearly be seen!  Click here!

 

Oh and, please start sending in Fan Art Awards nominations...pretty pweeze....?

 

New Stuff:

 

Some more artwork by Lady Scale can be seen at her art section, on page 2.

28 June 2003

Two new polls:  Vote for your favourite caption at the Pictures and Captions competition

A new weekly poll is up in the Beast Wars Express section.  

 

There's a new Character of the Month as well as a new Quote of the Month at the Beast Wars Express page.

 

I'm slowly correcting the message board link to the new board on each page.  Just give me time.  Also, The Console has now merged with the new board.

It may not seem like much, but this update took me forever.  So, you'd better enjoy it or else!!


21 June 2003

OMG, my exams are OVER!!!  :::does a happy little dance:::  July holidays, here I come!

 

The site won its first award!!  Yay! 

 => Now....where to put this thing?  *lol!*

 

Ooh!  More captions for the Pictures and Captions competition!  I'll hold the competition poll next weekend, so if you haven't sent in a caption and still want to, email it to me before the 28th!

 

*Lots* of fic award nominations this update!!  Go check to see if your fic has been nominated!

 

It's that time of the month again...time to vote for the next Character of the Month!  I know I'll be adding him/her two days before July, but that's when the update falls, so....go to the Beast Wars Express page and vote!

 

An animation odd pic has been added to the Beast Wars Mistakes and Animation Odds page.

 

Here are the Results for the previous poll: What did you think of the BW Transmetal bodies? 30% of you voted "I liked them", 70% voted: Transmetals. Kick. Bootie, no one voted: They were ok, I guess OR I liked the season 1 bodies better.

 

Fan Fic Challenge:

Even though there have been lots of fic noms, there's been an obvious absence of nominations in the following categories: Best Romance, Most Frightening, Most Surprising, Most Gripping Suspense-Thriller.

This is probably because not enough fics fall into these categories.  So here's a challenge to all you writers out there!  Who can write the most romantic, or scariest, or gasp-inspiring or suspenseful fic of them all?  I challenge all you writers to write a fic/fics in any of the above categories.

 

 

New Stuff:

 

Art by Lady Scale has been added to her section.  She has also sent in the first of her FV series

 

Sinead has sent in more of her fic 'Taiyoo Soshite Tsuki '.  Check out her fanfic section.

 

A funky episode review by Lord Skyfire has been added to the Episode Lists page!

 

Miss Special has sent in some cool Angel art plus the next chapter of Angel's Saga.

 

Dannn has sent in a cool fic which can be found at his section.

 

I've added a new  high-quality picture to the Special Characters picture page.


 

14 June 2003

 

Super cool update today!  So much new stuff to look at!!!

 

A new weekly poll has been added to the Beast Wars Express page. Results for previous poll: 'Which Was Your Favourite Season Of Beast Wars?' - 10% of you voted Season 1; 30% of you voted Season 2; 30% also voted Season 3 and the remaining 30% voted 'I liked them all equally'.

 

Three caption entries for the Pictures and Captions competition have been added.  Come one, guys 'n gals!  We need more than three!

BWA Update - June 2003.


30 May 2003

 

Change in plans.  This is NOT the last update until July.  Updates every weekend will continue as normal.  I've had a good look at my exam time table and realized that I have one long weekend and the third week of exams I only write two at the end of the week.  This coming week is the most busy but by the end of next week, I'll have a lot more time on my hands.  So there will be an update next weekend.  Keep sending stuff.  All I ask is that, because I won't be able to check and clear my inbox during the week, please send fics and art to this address: tessab10@yahoo.co.uk  - it has 6 megabytes and should sustain the load until the weekend.  Just PLEASE don't send any forward messages to that address.  This new address will only be used during the course of June.

 

On with the update!!

 

Starath won the Pictures and Captions competition which means her caption is now official!  Well done, Starath!  Sinead has also sent in a picture with a cute caption which is also at the Pictures and Captions page.

 

There's a new character of the month, as you can see.  Along with that, there's a new 'Quote of the Month' and a new poll at the Beast Wars Express page.

 

The results of the 'fan art awards' poll:  Fan Art Awards will start this July.  I'm going to try for the 1st of July, but no promises.

 

New Stuff:

 

:::gasp!:::  I've finally finished my Depth Charge drawing!  It's coloured and against a nifty background.  Click here!

 

Skyfire sent in a sketch of Ima (Pacerpaw's character) which I have coloured. Click here to view it.

 

 

The next part in 'Angel's Saga' by Miss Special is up plus a whole lot of artwork by her too!

 

An excellent Beast Machines poem by Pacerpaw is up in her section and the poetry section.

 

Starath has created two lovely little poems which I've added to her section and the poetry section.

 

Sinead has sent in a new fan fic.

 

A new story by me is up in the Lone Stories section.

 

I've uploaded newer, cleaner versions of the picture of Silvershadow which was drawn by Skyfire, coloured by me and touched up by Pacerpaw!  lol

 

Lady Scale has sent in a Sims-generated version of what she thinks Rattrap would look like as a Human.  
Click here for her art and web graphics page.

 

Divatron's site is back up at a new address.  I've updated the links page with it.

 

Apologies to Darkfire75, Sinead and Lady Scale.  Studies have kept me too busy to work on the update and I simply didn't have the stamina to put up anymore tonight.  Your work will be put up next weekend.

 

 


 

17 May 2003

 

::sigh:: My back-up site account at Crosswinds if officially dead.  Dreamwater just closed half its branches, causing Divatron's site to disappear.  Free servers are dying out left right and center!  Let's hope Fateback.com can hold out until I can afford a pay-server.  Just need two more people to send in ten dollars and we're home free!  Everyone hope the Rand (my currency) weakens a little more against the dollar. (Here's me hoping for it to weaken why the rest of South Africa weeps to see our currency slipping down in value again.  Strange scenario, ain't it?)

 

Btw, there are a couple of new nominations at the Fan Fic Awards Nomination page.

I've kept the Fan Art Awards poll up because there are so far only 7 votes and I *know* there are more people who can still vote.

The Pictures and Captions competition was a tie so I've changed the poll so that it's between the two winners and by the end of this week, when everyone has re-voted, we'll see who's won.

 

New Stuff:

 

A fan fic by Dannn is up in his section.

 

I've written a short, sweet comedy called "Dinobot's Dilemma" Click here to read it.

 

Darkfire's sent in a YuGiOh fic which I've added to her fan fic section.

 

Solar Blaze has drawn an irresistibly cute chibi Megatron!  Click here to see it!

 

Lord Skyfire drew a picture of Silvershadow (one of Pacerpaw's characters) which I coloured and added to Lord Sky's art section.

 

Lady Scale's done an interesting set of screencap by screencap stories which can be viewed here!

 

I've created two new web graphics.  Megatron fans will be interested in one of them. ;) 

 

A new goody has been added to the Beast Wars Express page.  Click here for Sapphire's Transformer Biology Theories page! (I got creative, ok?!)

 

 


 

10 May 2003

 

Gasp!  My school's open day was a disaster! Virtually none came, so, I got to go home early and hence, update!

Yay!!!

 

The poll for the Fan Art Awards has been changed to 'Dates: options of when to have the awards'.  Please vote.

 

Also, you can now vote for your favourite caption for the Pictures and Captions competition.

 

Announcement: I've totally redone the Latest Fan Fiction section so that now, each update, that page displays the new fics for that particular update.  It's no longer just news on my series (I've moved that to another page linked there.)  If you want to see which specific fics are new to each update, go to that section.

 

New Stuff:

 

A story by Miss Special has been added to her section.

 

A really funny BW comedy by Sinead is up in her section.  She's also done another stand-alone.

 

Some art by Skyfire is up in his artwork section.

 

A *cute* chibi Rattrap by Solar Blaze is up in her artwork section (page 1)!

Lady Scale has sent in a new web graphic (which can be viewed at her art page) plus a fourth screenshot gallery!

 

A non-BW poem by Pacerpaw is up in her section and the poetry section.  She's also written another short story/poem thing.  Not sure which to classify it as, actually.  ::shrugs::

 

I've written a short, sad stand-alone fan fic which can be read here.

 

Two more high-quality images have been added to the Pictures of the Maximals page.

 

A new link has been added to the links page.

 


 

3 May 2003

 

Hello everyone!  There's a big update today so here goes:

 

Firstly, there has been an idea expressed on the message board about having Fan Art awards.  Now, I'm ok with having art awards, but I need to know how many others are interested in having them. So, I've put up a poll on the Beast Wars Express page where you can vote in favour of or against the idea.  Please vote so I can get a general idea of how many are interested.

 

New Stuff:

 A new stand-alone fic by Skyfire is up in his fan fiction section.  He's also sent in a ton of art, most of which I've added to his art section (the rest will be put up next update.)

A two new fics by Darkfire75 are up in her section.

Three more fics by Lady Scale (click here) plus a fantastic new web graphic which can be viewed at her art section!

Sinead has sent in the last three installments of her 'Loving to Learn, Learning to Love' series.  ::sniffle:  I hate to see the end of a good series! Sinead has also sent in some more art.

There's a lovely new poem by Pacerpaw in her section and the Poetry section.

There are some more captions for the Pictures and Captions competition (which closes May 9th).

I've added a story by Miss Special to her section.

There are two more blooper pics up at the Beast Wars Mistakes and Animation Odds page.

A new link has been added to the links page.

There are some more nominations at the Fan Fiction Awards nomination list, plus the addition of a new category.

I've added two new graphics to my Web Graphics page.

I've written a comedy fic in dedication to all the writers and artists of this site.  Click here to read it!


 

30 April 2003

 

Just a quick mid-week update to change the character of the month (for May).  A full, proper update will take place this weekend.  

 

Another thing, from now on I'm not going to update the character of the month picture on writers and artists pages.  Each time I change the character of the month, I have to update every page with that image and now that I've topped 300 pages, I don't have the time.  There are now so many writers and artists that to go to each and every fic and art page just to update the character of the month pic is proving to be too time consuming.  So don't be startled if the character of the month image doesn't change on some pages.  Main pages will have the updated image.


 

 

26 April 2003

 

 

Remember last update's Easter pic?  Well, Lady Scale sent in her own version here!

 

New Stuff:

 

Two fics by a new writer to the site: click here for Pacerpaw's section!

There are some more nominations on the Fan Fiction Awards Nomination list.

Some more FAQ have been added to the Extensive FAQ page concerning the fic awards.

 

Don't forget to vote for the new character of the month on the Character of the Month page.

 

Also, the Picture and Caption competition is underway, so send in your captions!

 

 

BWA Update -  26th April 2003

 


 

20th April 2003

 

 

  Guess what? We've passed the 100 mark with 102 fan fics, stories and poems archived at the site!  Yay!

The Pictures and Captions competition is underway again.  Check out the picture and start sending in caps!

I've received a number of nominations and there's now a Nomination List (linked at the Fan Fiction Awards page) that you can have a look at. I'll continue to add to this list each update as I get more nominations. A complete FAQ along with dates on the voting and the awards has also been added to the Fic Awards section.

New Stuff:

Her fan fic 'Purpose' has been added to her fan fic section as well.

Solar Blaze (HDW)!!!  Congratulations Solar Blaze! (And Happy Birthday, too!)  Your cap is now the official one on the Pictures and Captions page   

A new picture is up there which will become the next Pictures and Captions competition image as of the 19th of April.  For now, have a look and have a good think about it.

 

And now, presenting a new addition to the site:

 

With over 90 fan fics and stories at this site, I think it's time to launch the site's first annual Fan Fic Awards. This will also give writers a chance to write fan fics that could be possible nominees for the September Awards, which gives you over four months to be creative and write some great stuff. Click the button above to learn about the categories, awards and more.  (To be linked at the Beast Wars Express and Fan Fiction page)

New Stuff:

 

The next part in Angel's Saga by Miss Special is up in her section

 

A new fan fic by Lady Scale plus her third gallery of screenshots and captions!  Not only that, but she did this adorable little pic here, with a little help from Solar Blaze.  Thanks, Lady Scale!  

 

A new poem by me in 'My Poetry section'.  It was inspired by the film 'Enemy at the Gate' so if you haven't seen it, it might not make much sense, but if you have, hopefully you'll like it.  :)

 

Guess what?  I've written my first full-fan fic since the Uprising series.  It's a lone fan fic, not part of any series, and it can be found here.  Read it and tell me what you think.

30 March 2003

Same goes for the Quote of the Month at the BW Express page.

28 March 2003

 

Sorry for the late update.  It's not my fault, actually.  I had everything ready to be uploaded on Saturday the 8th, but my FTP server has been down as it was undergoing maintenance.

 

New Stuff:

 

It's reaching the end of March, which means it's time to vote for the new Character of the Month. 

 

I've been sent a whole bunch of new fics by Skyfire (Chris), but seeing as I was updating at 1 in the morning, I was too tired to put them all up, so at the moment there's only two new fic in his section, but this weekend I'll put up the others. 

 

Some art by Sharpshot is up in Sharpshot's new Art Section.  Also, chapter 7 of the Beast Wars N series has been added.

 

A new fan fic by Starath is up in her section.

 

Lots more BW Bloops at the Beast Wars Mistakes and Animation Odds page.

 

Note:  I had a lot more art, fics and BWA news to put up this update, but I'm simply too tired.  My FTP was working so I took the opportunity to upload as many files as I could.  Hopefully this weekend it'll still be working and I can upload the remainder of the files.  Until then, enjoy the update.

A  coloured picture of what Solar Blaze imagined Transmetal Dinobot would look like can be found at her section.

It was Lady Venom's birthday on the 12th, and as a present for her, Solar Blaze drew this picture of Triyet, a character belonging to a story Lady Venom wrote which can be found at The Console.  Hope you had a great birthday, Lady Venom!

 

A new Lone Story by me.  It's a sequel to 'Of Maralites and Men', so I suggest if you haven't read the first, read it before you read the sequel.  

 

A new stand-alone fan fic by Dannn!  Check it out!

 

Don't forget the Caption Contest!  You have to caption this picture and the best caption will become the official one.  :)  Send in your captions before the end of March!

 

 


 

 

1 March 2003

 

 

March!  Yay!  A month to go before I start my holidays!

 

New stuff:

 

A new Character of the Month!  He won by 6 votes!

(Naturally, there's also a new quote of the month in the BW Express section.)

 

The Cast page has been updated with some extra info and some fixed typos. (Thanks Sinead.)

 

A new fic by a new author.  Click here for Chris' section.

 

Sinead has sent in a sequel to 'Wake Me Up Inside' which can be found at her fan fiction section.

 

The Pictures and Captions page has been updated with 9 new images and caps.  Check them out!  There's also a Caption Competition at the bottom of the page that people with humor might like to try out.

 

Speaking of which, Lady Scale has sent in a page with her own edited screenshots, complete with hilarious captions!  Click here for Lady Scale's Screenshots page!

 

Solar Blaze (HDW) had acquired a Yahoo Photo account and has uploaded some more art!  I've updated the second of her art pages with a link to her account.  Check it out!

 

A really fun thread was started at the message board, in which everyone listed little things that seemed a bit out-of-place in various Beast Wars episodes.  Well, I loved this thread so much that I have started a page which lists things to watch out for in Beasties episodes! Introducing the 'Beast Wars Mistakes and Animation Odds' page.  This page will be listed at the Beast Wars Express page as well.

 

The broken link to the BW Beatbox song has been fixed.  ;)

 

There were a few fics I couldn't get up for this update and I apologize to those writers.  I've sent emails to you and hopefully I can get your fics up and working by the 8th.  

 

That's all for now!  Enjoy the update!

 


22 February 2003

 

 

Well, we're getting towards the end of the month, which means a new poll as to who you'd like to see as the new Character of the Month!  Go to the Character of the Month page to vote!  ;)

BWA Update - 22 Feb. 2003

 


 

15 February 2003

 

The weekend's here!  Ahhh!!!

 

Ahem...on to news.

 

Super cool news!  I've added a brand new section to the site which can be found in the Beast Wars Express page and the Fan Fiction page.  Presenting:

 

 

This is a place where anyone can post stories, fics (unfinished or finished) ideas and poetry!  It is NOT, I repeat NOT replacing the regular message board - it's a board solely for fics/poems/stories/ideas. You can post what you want, when you want and get responses from the people who read.  I'll post all my ideas and poems and stories on there and I'll read whatever gets posted there and reply with my comments.  It's a section for YOU so people can read your work between updates or stuff that you don't want officially archived.  Click here to find out more!

 

Other cool news!  There's a chat for ALL members of the site this Sunday (the 16th) at 1pm Florida, USA time.  It'll be in the chat room on this site (linked on the nav bar above).  If you have AIM as well, I'll be on at that time and my screen name is kismetstar15.  See you there!  (And yes, the link IS working now, or it should be!)

 

Site Additions:

 

A fantastic BM fic by Lady Venom has been put up in her section.  Even if you didn't like Beast Machines, this fic is well worth a read!

 

There's a brand new stand alone fic by Sinead up in her re-vamped section.  It's beautiful, it really is.  

 


 

8 February 2003

 

 

::sigh:: I not only had to replace my guest book as a result of dreamwater bombing out on me, but also the link to my chat room.  I've updated most of the important and main pages with the new link to the chat room as the old one won't work.  

 

On to new stuff, now:

 

Two fics by a new writer: Lady Scale.  Click here to access her section!

 

New artwork and new fan fics (plus two Top Ten comedy lists)!  Click here for Varyn's section!

 

Another one of Sinead's fics has been put up in her fan fiction section.  Click here!

 

Beastbot has agreed to let me link to his toy reviews page.  Click here to read his reviews (link located at the bottom of the Toy Reviews page.)

 

That's all for now.

 


 

 

1 February 2003

 

Did you know this website consists of more than 200 pages?  0_o

 

 

I've updated the Fan Artwork section with a link to Sinead's art.

 

I've added another fic to Sinead's section.

 

Solar Blaze's artwork page has been re-done so it's quicker loading.  Be sure to check out the coloured version of Magnanimous!

 

A new Character of the Month! I know that on some pages the old character of the month pic will appear (Rattrap) but that's because it'll take too long to re-upload every page with the new character of the month image.  But it has been updated for February.

 

A fan fic by a new writer - Hacker!  Click here to access Hacker's section.

 

Two more exciting chapters have been added to Sharpshot's Beast Wars N Series.  

 

A new fan fic by Dannn.  Click here for his section (which has just had a makeover.)

 

Another web graphic added to My Web Graphics page.  Click here to see it!

 

Dreamwater deleted my old account.  :(  So, I lost my guestbook and all its entries!  ::cries::  I've got a new guestbook now, though.  It's all empty and quiet....sign...please?

 

 


25 January 2003

 

Well, I've started school.  Ugh.  I won't have much time to write and update now, but as always I will try to update every weekend or so.

 

Wow!  This is one HUGE update! (For my little site, anyway.)

 

A lot of new art!  Check out Cheetra's coloured version of Lady Venom at her section.  It looks fantastic!

 

Sinead's sent in some lovely art.  Click here for Sinead's Artwork.  Man, I just love the Dinobot pic she drew!

 

A new writer!  Click here to go to Sharpshot's section.  Read the first two chapters of the Beast Wars N Series - it's such an interesting idea! 

 

The Links page has been updated with links to Sinead and Sharpshot's sites.

 

I've added a poll to the Character of the Month page where you can vote for the character you'd like to see next month.  :) (so far there's a three-way tie! 0_o )

 

A link to pictures of the TM Rattrap toy has been added to the Toy Reviews page.

 

Ooh!  Have a look at the new Animated Gifs page!  I got creative late one night and made these cute little pictures which you can use as message board sig pics etc.  Have a look!

 

I realize now that that Beast Wars collage I tried to upload was too big so you couldn't access it.  I've replaced it with another desktop image design which has become the background you're looking at now!  Nice, huh?  Click here if you want to save it for your desktop.

 

 

BWA NEWS: Has been updated.  Click here to read.

 

That's it for now.  I'm going to try and get more up on Wednesday.  Click here to go to the message board.  It's at its busiest ever!

 


17 January 2003

 

There really isn't much this update.  For those of you who didn't read it last update, the last fic in the Uprising series is up.  Because I had to do a lot of re-reading of my fics to get my memory up to scratch before I wrote 'The Planet of Youth', I noticed a lot of errors in previous fics.  I've gone back and revised After Earth - the first in the After Earth series and I'm slowly putting up the edited versions of the other fics in the series in case anyone else wants to read or re-read them.  

 

A very funny little thing by Lady Venom and Cheetra: Click here and have a look!

 

:::sigh::  I have been alerted about the error a few times now that the Guest Book page doesn't work.  I've corrected the link on this and the main page, but it means I have to correct it on EVERY page with  this layout, which could take some time.  I'll slowly upload the pages each update with the corrected link. Sorry about that.

 

I've been asked if I'll do another comic strip.  Well, all I need is some funny pictures!  If you have a Beast Wars screen cap/picture that is odd and delicious to caption, why not send it in with a caption of your own or leave it to me to make fun of ::evil chuckle::

 

Anyway, that's all for now.  

 


15 January 2003

 

This mid-week update was done for one purpose.  I'm updating to announce that I have 

finished the seventh and final fan fic in the Uprising series!  Did you know that I've been writing the After Earth and Uprising series for three years?! The story can be found on the Uprising index page and it is titled 'The Ultimate Price'.  I hope you all enjoy this fic and have enjoyed the series as a whole.  There's a little note for you at the end of the story if you'd like to read it but it must be read after the story.

 

School starts next week for me (unfortunately) which means I'll have less time for updates.  I will try and manage one once a week but just bear in mind that this is my Grade 11 year which means a LOT of work. 

 

A regular update with fics, art and comics will take place this coming weekend.

 

Thanks and enjoy the fic!


Latest Fan Fiction News - update 15/1/03

Current Fic News: 

The seventh and final fic of my Uprising series is here. Titled 'The Ultimate Price' this fic can be found at The Uprising page.  I hope you will enjoy this fic and have enjoyed the series.

Sneak Previews:  

Past Sneak Previews. 

What I'm planning to write:  

 

Currently, I'm experiencing a bit of writer's remorse.  I've just ended my series and right now I'm sad because I'm finding it difficult to let go of my characters and put the series to rest.  It will be some time before I start writing again and I'm still making up my mind if I even want to write another series.  If I do, it may or may not be a follow up to the Uprising series.  I'll have to wait and see how things go.

 

 


11 January 2003

 

::moans::  You'd think I'd sound a little happier after returning from a five day holiday, and so did I until I got really sick on the last night.  I'm very weak and tired and I seriously don't have the energy right now to do much.  However, I've done a few little things just to update this site.

 

I've created and added a new collage to Sapphire's Web Graphics page.

 

I have made a Toy Reviews page (found at Beast Wars Express page) where I review the few Beast Wars toys I have and allow others to send in reviews on their toys too.

 

Something to brighten my day: Solar Blaze had drawn a sketch of Magnanimous whilst testing his powers (seen in The Planet of Youth).  It's very good but better yet, she's working on a coloured version as well. 

 

That's all for now.  I'll try and do some more when I feel better.

 


4 January 2003

 

A quick update before I go on holiday for five days to the mountains.  

 

A new fic is up in Sinead's section.

I have fixed two pictures in the media section of both the Maximals and the Predacons.

 

Unfortunately I've had little time to write anything but I have done a drawing which I'm going to get scanned in soon (if I can configure my mother's ancient scanner to my laptop.)

 

Next update will take place on Friday.  Feel free to send in art, fics, BW jokes/quotes or pictures and captions anytime before then and I'll include them in my next update. 

 


 

1 January 2003

 

Firstly: Happy New Year everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

And as you can see, with the New Year comes a brand new and funky site layout!  I hope you all like the choice I made.  It should make navigation easier and it adds a lot more colour to the site.  I've totally redone the Beast Wars Express section with some new pages and goodies!  Have a looksee!!  This layout has been applied to every page except the fan fiction pages which I believe are better viewed without the navigation bars. There's a Character of the Month section again and this month it is Rattrap.  I'll archive all the previous Characters of the Month from last year by next update.  This coming Friday I'll add some more fics by Sinead.  If anyone would like to send in comments, fics/art or would like to point out some broken hyperlinks, please feel free to do so before Friday.  With the new layout there's bound to be a few pages I missed. I hope you all enjoy the new look.  Take care and have a fantastic 2003.
