Angel's Secrets: Site Updates (2002-2004)

These are in reverse chronological order, so the earliest entries are at the bottom of the page.

.

12/18/04 ~ I posted a new Question of the Moment, and I added the season five DVD cover to the Angel Cast Gallery.

.

11/21/04 ~ I have finally found a use for the old site. Plus, I added a few guidelines for posting at the forums.

.

10/30/04 ~ I have (finally!) posted the recap and review of the Series Finale - but please don't think that means I am done with this site! I still have plenty to accomplish here, plus I'll still search for news and post what I find.

.

10/5/04 ~ I removed several broken links from the Links page; maybe for the next update, I'll check and see if the descriptions I have listed for the remaining sites are still applicable.

.

9/14/04 ~ As of this update, I only have three reviews to go: I can't tell you how happy that makes me. I love to think about the eps and write the reviews, but I'm anxious to finish because I don't like for that section to be incomplete.

.

8/24/04 ~ I am pleased to announce that now even more of this site is pop-up ad free, because I am moving the message board and the galleries to my own domain.

.

8/4/04 ~ There is a new poll question - please try not to faint from the shock...

.

7/21/04 ~ Rumors are floating around about an Angel movie - when I find anything more definite, I'll post it.

.

7/7/04 ~ My goal is to complete the reviews before the summer ends. (Summer ends in September, right?)

.

6/20/04 ~ To gain publicity, I'm having a "links drive." If you have a cool Angel (or non-Angel, if it's really good) related site, simply add a link to this site, let me know, and I'll include your site on the Angel Links page.

.

6/5/04 ~ I've done a bit of organizing/changing things in the Creative Works section; you can read about the changes here. Or you can just visit that section and drown your cancellation sorrows in some fanfiction.

.

5/23/04 ~ In honor of the finale - sniffle! - I have changed the poll.

.

5/7/04 ~ Now that I'm done with school, I should be able to update more. :crosses fingers: Anyway, in case you haven't heard by now, the news is not good. In case anyone is wondering, this site will remain open.

.

3/24/04 ~ The news that I find lately about the show's future does not sound promising.

.

3/04/04 ~ According to one source UPN has decided to not pick up Angel, saying that it's "too expensive." :(

.

2/24/04 ~ Join the fight: Save Angel! Support Angel!

.

2/17/04 ~ I have bad news, my friends: Angel's been cancelled. This is really coming out of nowhere, because everything I've heard has told how well the show's been doing this season. Say it with me: "You suck, WB!!"

.

2/06/04 ~ I completed the site update, but I'm still doing a bit of organizing, so bear with me. If you find a broken link or a missing image, please let me know. (Thanks!)

.

2/03/04 ~ Yes, I have moved the site. It's *mostly* moved at this point, but it still needs a bit of tweaking. I plan to finish it by this weekend - if not sooner!

.

1/10/04 ~ Again, please use the site's "dot geo" URL:
http://www.geocities.com/angelsecrets.geo/
I'm currently unable to update my billing info at Yahoo. If I'm not able to update it before my credit card expires, the "Geocities Plus" part of the site will be discontinued. The site will still be up, but the address with the tilde (~) won't work anymore.

.

12/20/03 ~ Important! Please use the site's "dot geo" URL:
http://www.geocities.com/angelsecrets.geo/
I'll explain later. Thanks!

.

12/5/03 ~ My final exams are almost over; hopefully I can take advantage of my time off to catch up on reviewing eps before the show returns.

.

11/14/03 ~ I've finally seen the season five premiere! :weeps for joy: Can I just say - Angel still rocks! I like it so much, that I agreed to take over another site that I just couldn't stand to see shut down.

.

10/27/03 ~ Since I'm still waiting to see (and subsequently review) the first few eps of season five, this update is pretty small.

.

10/13/03 ~ Thanks to JC Holt a summary of the Season Five premiere has been posted. Thank you, JC - I *do* appreciate the help! I also realized today that I haven't received any site survey results in a long time; I checked and saw - oops! - that the form wasn't working. It's fixed now . . . as far as I can tell. I also changed the Angel Poll question.

.

9/28/03 ~ A reminder: season five premieres Wednesday, October 1. I have (barely) finished reviewing the season four episodes; realizing my limitations, I'm asking for some kind souls to submit reviews for the new episodes. Want more info?

.

9/09/03 ~ With you all as my witnesses, I *will* finish reviewing the season four episodes before season five begins.

.

8/23/03 ~ It's more than a rumor: Angel's fifth season will premiere October 1. Did I mention that's also my birthday? (Oh, I did. Well, this is my not-so-subtle way of repeating the previous post.) Instead of asking for items on a wishlist, I'd love it if some kind visitors would consider reviewing one or more of the upcoming episodes: read more of my plea for help on the Review Index.

.

8/6/03 ~ There's a rumor that Angel's fifth season will premiere October 1; I really hope that rumor is true because that also happens to be my birthday. *g* Instead of asking for items on a wishlist, I'd love it if some kind visitors would consider reviewing one or more of the upcoming episodes: read more of my plea for help on the Review Index.

.

7/23/03 ~ I thought I was updating right on schedule, then I noticed that it's been almost three weeks. My (lame) excuse is that I was determined to finish two reviews. Plus, news about the show/stars has been pretty slow lately except for casting rumors, which I usually post on the Spoiler Board as soon as I find them.

.

7/03/03 ~ It's been a while since I thanked all of the lovely visitors who send feedback about this site: you guys rock! For those keeping score, we're about to reach another mini-milestone: July 9th will be the two year anniversary of the day Chrystal turned the site over to me. Drinks for everyone! (Everyone in this room. ;)

.

6/16/03 ~ This was one of those updates that took place at various times over the last week - so you know it must be a big one. You can read what features were updated above; it may not look like much, but believe me, it took quite a bit of effort. In other news, please give a warm welcome to my new affiliate.

.

5/25/03 ~ Now that Angel's been renewed - oh, I do love the sound of that! - there's plenty of speculation about the cast for next season. It's a bit early for those types of rumors, but if it generates interest in the show, I'm all for it.

.

5/12/03 ~ Angel's been renewed! Read about it here or here.

.

4/28/03 ~ New Awards - yay! In other news, we're *still* waiting to hear if Angel's been renewed. At last report, I heard it would be about two more weeks before the announcement is officially made. As soon as I know what's what, I'll post it on the news page. If it's good news, I'll probably send it in an email to the people who are on the receive-an-update-notice list, too.

.

4/13/03 ~ On the Angel News page you can find a couple of links where you can vote to Save Our Show. Also, don't forget to click the banner at the bottom of this page; it goes to the WB Angel page, and they're counting how many hits this site produces.

updated: the Angel (Cast) Gallery, the Angel News page, Episode Reviews

.

3/30/03 ~ If you've been here before you probably notice that the site has a new layout. (Comments?) All of the pages have the same names, they just have a new look. For more on the new design, click here.

.

Updated 3/15/2003

Added a recap and review of Supersymmetry and posted two new poems in the Creative Works section. Found several new bits of Angel news. Changed the Question of the Moment, and updated the Question Archive. Also added a splashy banner to the site index to help advertise Angel's Wednesday timeslot.

Coming in the next update (before the end of March), there will be a new layout for the site.

.

Updated 2/22/2003

Posted three new stories in the Creative Works section. (Many thanks to everyone who is contributing; I do appreciate it!) Added a link to the links page and found a bit of Angel News.

.

Updated 2/7/2003

Added Angel News and included links to several Season 1 DVD contests. Updated the Angel Poll archive; wow, those are some lame questions. (Note: poll ideas are gratefully accepted.) Jayneanne has sent another fabulous fanfic, which has been added to the Creative Works section.

.

Updated 1/26/2003

Posted my review and recap of Slouching Toward Bethlehem. Changed the question on the Angel Poll. Added quite a bit of Angel News and two new Creative Works. The site also received a new award: thank you, Lori!

.

Updated 1/05/2003

Starting this year, no starting the sentences on this page with the word "I." (It pretty much goes without saying that I'm the one doing the updating, yes?)

Posted the review and recap of The House Always Wins. Found a little Angel News. Redid the Angel Links page, which was in desperate need of some URL updates. Added a new fanfic to the Creative Works section; she credits the fanfic on this site as one of her inspirations. *smiles*

Happy New Year!

.

Updated 12/17/2002

I've posted the review and recap of Ground State. I found a little Angel News. (I'm done with finals, but I'm lazy and sick, hence the short update.)

.

Updated 12/03/2002

I've posted the review and recap of Deep Down. I found a little Angel News. (I'm in the midst of finals, hence the short update.)

.

Updated 11/20/2002

I changed the question on the Angel Poll, archived the old results, and added a little Angel News. I also backed up some of the files: that's not too exciting, but I'm convinced it's quite necessary.

.

Updated 11/05/2002

I added some pictures from the upcoming episode to the Angel Gallery; yes, two gallery updates in a row: no one get excited. ;) There is a link to more pictures from that episode and a few articles and reviews on the Angel News page. I added a poem that was sent to me by a site visitor. As I was cleaning up the fanfiction index, I removed one broken link and corrected one, so there's another new story.

.

Updated 10/18/2002

Since this is a slow week with very little news and no reviews to write (because I haven't seen any of the Season 4 episodes yet) I decided to focus on the Angel Gallery. I created a new gallery for Exclusives, which holds the largest pictures. I reduced the size of two pictures, so they're not so close to one megabyte, but I bet that section still gets shut down often by Angelfire. Maybe the other two galleries will have more up-time this way.

.

Updated 10/04/2002

I updated Angel's Story with a blurb from the WB site (thanks, guys!). I posted my recap and review for Tomorrow. I updated the Angel Poll Archive. On a whim, I changed the site intro paragraph on the main page. For a limited time - I'm not sure how long - there is a site survey on the Angel Poll page.

.

Updated 9/28/2002

I posted my recap and review for Benediction. (The r&r for Tomorrow will be posted later this week.) I changed the Angel Poll, and I plan to archive the results from the two previous polls as soon as I find where I stored them. There is also some Angel News, including an announcement about a new book for Angel and Buffy fans.

After I sent out the update email, I added two new members to "Angelesque." I'll mention those in the next email.

.

Updated 9/16/2002

Last week I remembered that I have an Angel picture gallery, so today I found time to search for new pictures. I found several from Season 4 including a few which (I think) were just released today. This is what prompted me to update. Well, that and the fact that it's been a while... There is a little Angel News, and I switched to a Bravenet guestbook. Hopefully it won't fill up quite as fast as the one from Geocities.

.

Updated 8/30/2002

More major updates, although many of these occurred gradually during the past week. I posted reviews and recaps of "The Price" AND "A New World." I added much fanfiction from Ellen (aka "Scribble") and Cryptic Angel, and I slightly revised the fanfiction submission guidelines. I found plenty of Angel News and even organized the news archives a little. I created new buttons for people to use to link to this site. While surfing, I ran across an old award that a site had presented to Angel's Secrets; they even wrote a lovely critique. I also added a new page for Affiliates, Cliques, and Listings.

I am currently back in school and busy as ever, but I'll still be around. My goal is to find an Angel source well before the new season starts - you may recall that my local channels don't show the WB programming anymore. I also WILL finish the reviews of Season Three before October 6th; much sooner than that is the plan.

.

Updated 8/11/2002

Major updates today - can you tell that I have a small break between semesters? I posted my recap and review of "Double or Nothing." I found much Angel News, including spoilers for season four. Scribble sent me a wonderful new fanfic. I changed the question on the Angel Poll; I'll archive the old results and comments later. I also completely redid the design of my clique with the wonderful graphics contributed by petal creations. (See the clique for more info.)

.

Updated 7/24/2002

Why in the world did I wait so long to automate the poll? Now, visitors can view the current results at any time. Anyway, I added some Angel News, and added my recap and review of Forgiving.

.

Updated 7/13/2002

I updated the Angel Poll Results and changed the Question of the Moment to an automated poll. I found a little Angel News. I added another new Creative Work - an Angel haiku submitted by a site visitor. Angelesque has a new member, so check them out.

.

Updated 6/30/2002

I added my recap and review of Sleep Tight. I also updated the Angel Poll Results. I dug up some Angel News. I added a new Creative Work - an Angel haiku submitted by a site visitor.

Last week I switched to a new chatroom - it's worked every time I've tested it so far, so it's doing better than the previous chatroom in that respect.

Help Wanted! If you would like to write recaps and reviews for any of the Season 3 episodes that I'm missing, please feel free to do so. I would appreciate the help! Email me for more info.

.

Updated 6/11/2002

I also updated the Poll Results and added a new Question of the Moment. I found a little Angel News that includes a rumor - repeat rumor - about a cast member not returning.

.

Updated 5/29/2002

I have posted my recap and review of Loyalty. I updated the Angel Poll results. I also added several Angel News links.

My schedule has changed slightly, so updates may be rather sporadic for a while. I am planning for an update every two weeks for a while; don't worry, I will not forget this site. I'm also still working on catching up on the episode reviews that I'm missing; my goal is to have those complete well before the summer is over.

.

Updated 5/14/2002

I updated the Angel Poll results. I also added several Angel News links.

Note: this website will be down starting Friday, May 17th, 2002 at 9:00 pm PST (GMT-7). Service will be restored the morning of Sunday, May 19th, 2002. Geocities is doing some "scheduled maintenance."

.

Updated 5/08/2002

I added my recap and review for Couplet. I updated the Angel Poll results and the guestbook archive. I found several Angel News articles, but I couldn't find much on the birth of David's baby. I'll keep looking.

.

Updated 4/30/2002

Angel News in print: TV Guide has an article on Angel, which states that Angel is still successful without being paired with its sister series. I added a new, less controversial Angel Poll, and updated the results from the previous poll.

.

Updated 4/23/2002

I finally added the recap and review for Waiting in the Wings. I added a little more Angel News. I also updated the Angel Poll results; I honestly expected the responses to be less predictable than they have been. I plan to add a new poll next week.

.

Updated 4/16/2002

I found several pieces of Angel News, no doubt because of the return of new episodes. I updated the Angel Poll results, which I apparently did not do last time. (I updated it on my computer and didn't upload it to the site. Ooops!) I changed the About this Site page slightly.

After I sent today's update email, I added the link to the new Chat Room to the main index. The Yahoo! Angel news page links to this site as the source of a chat room, so I thought it best if I returned that feature. Note: the chat room page pops up in another window so that you can keep surfing, if you like, while you wait for other chatters.

.

Updated 4/9/2002

I added a new forum to the Angel Board, which is a place to discuss non-Angel related topics. I updated the results of the Angel Poll. There is a little Angel News.

.

Updated 4/5/2002

I was toying with a slightly new layout for the site index; I liked what I had so much I decided to go ahead and post it without waiting for next week's update.

.

Updated 4/2/2002

There is a new Question of the Moment, which is a slightly modified version of the previous one. I found several tidbits of Angel News. I updated the results of the Angel Poll.

.

Updated 3/26/2002

I added a little Angel News. I updated the results of the Angel Poll. I included a link to a Question and Answer site on the FAQ page. I also added one of my sites - fannesite - to the Angel Links collection.

.

Updated 3/19/2002

You can find major Buffy spoilage if you visit the Angel News page. I posted my recap and review for Provider. I updated the Poll Results, and I emptied the guestbook since it has been full for a long time. I also archived some of these old entries because this page was huge!

.

Updated 3/12/2002

I looked for news, but didn't find anything. (That's a side effect of Angel being on hiatus.) I updated the Poll Results. I had to throw out some of the votes because people were spam-voting; one single computer sent 19 votes in a row.

I'd like to welcome Sandra's David Boreanaz site to Angelesque.

.

Updated 3/4/2002

Due to time constraints, this week's update will be divided up between today and tomorrow. Today: I added a new Affiliate - A Brazilian Buffy site. I also added a little Angel News. (Most of the news that I find these days is not very encouraging.) I updated the Angel Poll results and the poll archive. Tomorrow: I will post my recap and review of "Birthday", add the link to the new Angel Gallery, and send out the update email.

.

Updated 2/25/2002

There is a new Question of the Moment. I found a little Angel News.

.

Updated 2/11/2002

I finally posted a Recap and Review of "Dad." There are three new poems in Creative Works - thanks to Melissa for letting me post her work. I added a new affiliate to the About This Site page. I updated the FAQ page with UK DVD info. I also updated the current Angel Poll Results. I corrected/deleted some broken Angel Links and added a new one. I posted a little Angel News as well.

I am busier than usual, so I probably will not update the site again until February 25th.

.

Updated 2/04/2002

I added new pictures to both galleries. I updated the Frequently Asked Questions page. I also updated the current poll results and the question of the moment archive.

.

Updated 1/28/2002

There is a new Question of the Moment Poll, and the results are updated as well. There is plenty of Angel News, mostly about next week's ballet-themed episode.

.

Updated 1/22/2002

I found several more pieces of Angel News. I updated the Angel Poll results. I also added a new poem to the Creative Works section.

.

Updated 1/15/2002

I found several pieces of Angel News. I updated the Angel Poll results. I added another links site to the Angel Links page.

.

Updated 1/07/2002

I posted my recap and review of "Lullaby." I updated the Angel News page. I also updated the Angel Poll results and archived the previous results. I added to the Angel Links page. From now on, I will include any spoilers that I have on the spoilers message board because I can quickly and easily post what I find. I removed the site poll from the About This Site page: many thanks to those that responded. I plan to post another site poll later.
