Thank you, I’ll pass the compliments to Miria for the design—premade comes from her Otaku Junk. ;)
Yeah, I’m doing well and Christmas went well; I’m enjoying and eating my Xmas gifts—mostly chocolate along with books, perfumed candles and jewelry. What about you? What did you get for Christmas? :)

Wow, we got pretty much the same gifts…well, except the clothes; my family can’t really give me clothes, because I’m the size of a killer whale and it’s hard to find fitting yet good-looking clothes. xD
My Christmas lunch has been the same since I was born: salami, prosciutto and such as appetizer; anolini (a kind of tortellini in a meat broth) as first entrĂ©e; boiled chicken and beef with sauces as second appetizer; last, panettone, nougat and cakes as dessert….a very light lunch. xD xD
I got a books about dog breeds—I love dogs—and another one about the wild animals living in my the mountains (called Appennino Emiliano) at whose feet my country town is placed.

My sites schedule has been completely awol for months—I’m terribly behind with lots of sites—but right now my first priority is to make my final decision about Akairo’s destiny: do I keep the site, and renew the domain, or do I go back to my origins by moving everything to It’s a big decision, I about 3 weeks to decide (until expires) yet I’m still far from having decided—I’m 70-75% leaning toward Hakanai.

Wow, thank you for the compliment. :) I’m decently good-looking, but beautiful is stretching it too far. xD

At the beginning Akairo was born to be a site to test designs aspects—dropdown menus, image slides, responsive menus, etc.; when I got tired of Lovedrug, I made Akairo my main gfx site but I’ve never been fully satisfied with the name—and in fact I updated it way more rarely than I did with Lovedrug or IAdore. When I got the chance to grab the domain and a hosting package for it, the idea of ditching Akairo started to grow in my head…and now I’m more and more inclined to keep Hakanai (Hakanai 85%—Akairo 15%).

As usual, my idea with site name changes is to just go with your gut; from what I got, that is telling you to change name but you’re being blocked by people not updating your link. My opinion on that is a bit drastic, meaning that, if I were you, I’d set a deadline: if people don’t update my (your) link by due date, I (you) will remove them from the list—that’s also a good way to get rid of dead or inactive sites links.

It’s funny: you mentioned a manga collection site; I was just watching the one by Aqua Cure’s owner yesterday and the idea came to my mind too….but I have way more than her 72 series (mines are likely more than 100 series), so the task is quite daunting. :P

Lately the whole documentaries I’ve been watching, on both TV and YouTube, are either Nazi ones—because my dad watches those at dinner—or fantastic and paranormal scary ones; I haven’t watched a natural documentary in actually quite a while.

That was the idea, but I never got to actually do so and test my skills at responsive menus and image slideshows—not for lack of trying, though. :P
And a manga collections site gonna be a really titanic task for me, as I’ve been buying and reading manga since around 1999-2000; though I’ve thrown away and sold some, I still have lots of volumes and series. xD

Owning/running a fanlisting has never really interested me, though I love joining them; by the way, do you mean the fanlisting script called Enthusiast? I’ve read the tutorials on the script’s site—and on Google—and it seemed relatively simple to me.

I’m currently watching the latest seasons of my top favorite shows, NCIS and Criminal Minds, but I’ve basically watched nothing aside from those; I can’t seem to find a series—or anime—who can really “capture” me, I always lose interest after a couple of episodes of any new series I start.

You summed up my feeling perfectly: the first word coming to my mind when I think about Akairo lately is blah; I just don’t like it anymore. I’ll probably end up moving everything to Hakanai by January.
A composed name is good when both words in it are short, otherwise it can become a mouthful even to type; I personally still like Hakanai Paper much more than Loveboxx, but it’s up to you and if you liked Loveboxx more..
Places to start for site names? Well, there’s Akairo (:p); then I use for the english names inspiration; I don’t know of a site with Japanese site names, I’ve never seen one around—I’ve searched—lately resorting to Wikipedia’s section on japanese legendary creatures and folklore.

Yeah, it did; I was really torn, but when I went to check Akairo today I felt almost like the site wasn’t mine and I decided it was time end it.

The twin sites idea is super cool….unless you find your guts too (I know you have that and more) and decide to change name—but I would love to have the name similar to yours. :)
