The chief reason I decided to create this fanlisting: vs.hive is awesome. (That's why most people start fanlistings, isn't it?) Since I've already extolled many of its virtues on the front page (and given it my seal of approval by running this fanlisting for the script), let me fill you in on the site's technical details.

Behind The Scenes

Building swarm wasn't very difficult. I installed the single site version of vs.hive... That's pretty much it! When it comes to PHP scripts, I normally abandon default layouts and start with a clean slate. However, for version one of this fanlisting, I decided to work with the included CSS.
Most of what you see here was created by Alis Dee, though I shoulder a good deal of the blame for the current color scheme. Color "inspiration" came by way of feeding some of the buttons on sk.ODE's links & resources page to Color Hunter, then messing around with different combinations. I switched up some of the fonts as well.
I used EditPad Lite and the Web Developer extension for Firefox for coding purposes. I've made my best attempts to insure this site has valid XHTML & CSS. (If you find any errors, do let me know!)
The use of the word "swarm" as the fanlisting's name came about because hives make me think of fans swarming.


Just in case you got this far but somehow don't know what a fanlisting is, here is a little quote from thefanlistings.org:

A fanlisting is simply an online listing of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join... [T]he only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are) - they are just a place where you can have your name listed along with other fans of the same subject.
