How can I contact you?
Well, if by you, you mean the person who maintains the site, then here are a few ways of contacting me:
email: shamash @ gmail . com
If you want to contact the creator of the site, Zack Ham, his email is email@example.com and his AIM is hamoe.
How do I set orders? What's this "rank" stuff?
In order to set the order of images within an archive, or the order of archives within or outside of a collection, or the order of collections, you have to specify the rank of the items. When you first goto the ordering page, each item will be defaulted to a rank of 100. You can change this to whatever integer you wish, and the items will be ranked from lowest number to highest number. If you want to have an item be first in your list, change its rank from 100 to 1. If you want an item to be last in the list, change its rank from 100 to anything past 100 (101 for example). If you still have questions, just play around with it and you will figure it out, its simple and once you understand it its quick and easy to use.
What can you tell me about this site?
Antishift is just as the header says, a community of digital imagery. It became live on December 28th, 2002 under the coder and founder Zack Ham. Since then it has gone through around 3 new owners and has had many ups and downs, and is finally in the hands of myself.
It started as antishift.net, turned into antishift2.com, and is now antishift.org
What is the daily archive? How is it chosen?
Every 24 hours, a new daily archive begins its cycle of existence, and as soon as that cycle begins, the daily archive for the next day is on its way to be chosen. On your user information page, you have an option called participation. When this is on, you may get a popup while visiting the browse page asking you to do one of three things. The first would be to go out and nominate an archive. You are the first person involved in the daily archive selection process, so its your job to just go out and pick any archive you think is worthy. The second step is to evaluate the result of the first step. You get to see what archive was nominated by that first person, and if you like it, you can confirm it. After confirming, that archive will for-sure be the next day's archive. If you don't think its worthy, you can nominate yet another archive. The third step only happens if the second person chose to nominate again, and the third person involved would then choose between the two archives nominated. After this process, the daily archive has been chosen. The idea behind this is not necessarily to put out the best archives on the site, but to give users an opportunity to choose which archives get to be showcased on a main page for everyone to see once again.
What's the deal with donations?
You can find everything you need to know on the donations page.
Where did that cool logo come from?
Ryan Kumler made the "AS" logo, and Zack Ham coded the rest of the template around it.
Who hosts this site?
Me. And I have to pay for it, too, which is why there is a donations page.
