Making your fanlisting better
- Don't collect fanlistings just for the sake of it. Apply only if you're a true fan.
- Update regularly. We all hate to be on the pending list for ages.
- Make an "About" page. And make sure to include a specific info on your subject, not just general "what's a fanlisting" explanation.
- Tell your visitors why you like the subject. It will make the fanlisting more personal, and it really shows you're a fan.
- Make your rules as short as possible. And don't force anyone to read them.
- Make codes. At least one for the most popular sizes (50x50, 88x31, 100x35, 100x50).
- Accept code donations and give credit to the creators.
- Use a fanlisting management script, if possible. If not, use a join form. Don't force us to email you our info.
- If someone requests an update, update their info as soon as possible. Same goes for people asking to be deleted from the list.
- Accept all the affiliates whose fanlistings are related to your subject. Don't be picky about the layouts, codes or member count.
- Do read the member comments and emails. Try to answer as soon as possible.
- Don't trade fanlistings (at least not often).
- If you put a fanlisting up for an adoption, don't be too picky. If you think nobody can run a fanlisting as good as you can, keep it.
And how to make your fanlisting worse?
