♡ info about the site, a qna and a little history about it!! ♡

────── ・ 。゚☆: *.☽ .* :☆゚. ───────

wappydog serves as a place for me to chuck every ounce of my chaos into, a place for me to scream about my favourite things and, well, just be completely epic on!! it's my little passion project, and managing this site has really helped a bit with my mental health...

i started this site on march 16th 2023. at the time, i was trying to find good places for me to, well, express myself + chuck my info down!! carrd, listography and rentry sadly didn't quite hit the spot... so i turned to neocities. later on, i migrated over to nekoweb!!

i hope you find joy in this site just as much as i did when coding all this up... if you have something nice to say about this site, chuck a comment on mah lil guestbook!! it's much appreciated ;__;

some history...

since march 16th 2023, wappydog has gone through 7 layouts. this one is called "digiheaven"!!
this layout was mostly inspired off cinni.net, but strawbebby & cloverbell were also inspirations too!!

wappydog v1.1 - march 16th 2023 ★
♡ the first ever version!! ♡

the first ever layout i "made" for wappydog!!
this one was built on cloverparty's f2u 1998 neocities layout. the reason why this is dubbed "v1.1" is because v1 looked very slightly different (different colors in the sidenav)!!

despite how ugly v1.1 looks, its still a layout that i hold close to my heart. after all, it marked the start of my coding journey lol

wappydog v2.0 - may 29th 2023 ★
♡ the cuteness is real ♡

i completely redid v1.1 and replaced it with a cute little mamegoma theme. it was also my first time messing around with position:absolute;!! im still pretty proud of this layout, actually =^__^=

wappydog v3.0 - june 29th 2023 ★
♡ chiwawaaaaaa ♡

header-style layout time babeyyyyyyyy!!!
wappydog was completely redone, this time with a different base from cloverparty!! i moved off from the common sidebar layout and moved onto the header-style layout. the site doesnt look as clunky anymore!!

v3.1 was basically the same except it was pink so im not gonna show it here lol

wappydog v4.0 - august 9th 2023 ★
♡ comfort plushies, anyone?? ♡

i love how cute this layout turned out!!! plushies were planted everywhere to represent my love for them!!
sadly, v4 didnt last very long... as proud i was of this layout, she didnt quite represent the site the way i wanted it to be... :'[

wappydog v5.0 - september 19th 2023 ★
♡ the wappy is back ♡

probably one of the best layouts i ever made for the site.
v5 was mostly png-based, the process of me making this consisted of me screenshotting my site + then building around it on procreate!!

i wouldve kept this one for longer if it wasnt a nightmare to play around with :'[

wappydog v7.0 - december 16th 2023 ★
♡ welcome to my digital world... ♡

wappydog got a complete new coat of paint!! i tidied up everything a little bit and, yknow, made the site a little nicer!!
again, like v4.0, it didn't QUITE represent the site the way i wanted it to, so sadly, he had to go. v7.0 is pretty much a refurb'd version of v6.0 LMAO

quick qna!!!

💿 are you ever going to finish wappydog??

erm... not quite sure about that one yet. i have massive problems with my motivation which means i can go for days without touching this site, other days i'll be sat here at my desk coding non-stop LOL
this site's constantly changin' and growin' as i learn more about html and css >:]

💿 what's the song on this page??

on pages stylized like what you're seeing, the name of the song SHOULD be listed in that silly little marquee at the top of the page. atelier amacha music my beloved :3

💿 why wappydog??

if it isn't very obvious by the theme of this site, wappydog is the name of a line of robo-pups created by sega toys + activision. you were able to communicate with wappy through a game made specifically for them!! think nintendogs but with an actual physical toy!!
i snatched the name quickly when i was extremely hyperfixated on the wappydog...

by the way, say hi to mimi!! they're my wappydog =^__^=

💿 i'm struggling to view the site :o[

if you're using kaspersky, for some reason it's flagged my domain as phishing, potentially because in '12 the domain was used as some advertising site?? (thank you archive.org)
for the time being, please put wappydog.net in your trusted domains list!!

this site will NEVER ask for your login details, nor will it ever attempt to steal your info. wappydog is simply my little personal site where i chuck my chaos on!!

💿 how did you make the 3d-looking wappydogs??

i used ibispaint for those... (however my primary app is procreate)
all the parts of dee altair (my sona + mascot) were drawn on different layers. if you go to effects (labled as FX) on the sidenav of your drawing, then go to style, you should see an effect called "relief". click that and boom!! draw linelessly for best results (means you'll have to apply the effect on every part lol)

click here for a speedpaint of what i did!!

💿 who's the wappydog around your page??

that is dee altair, my sona and my mascot!! (they/it pronouns please!!)
i created them back in march of 2023 after many attempts of trying to create a sona for myself. they're some wappydog alien thing who loves to travel between universes :]

btw. this is their ref sheet. feel free to draw them if you like =^__^=
(click on the image for the full-width version!!)

💿 can i use [random] thing from your site??

eeeehh.... depends on what exactly it is.
if you want cool resources, check poochi, my resource site!! (its WIP sorry)
as for coding, you can take small snippets if you'd like!! just don't. like. steal the entire layout lol (inspiration is heavily appreciated!! seriously it makes me so happy seeing people get inspired off my stuff :D)
