Each week that goes by, The Shadowness Staff and our Founder, Meng To ( /7shadows ) get together on Sunday afternoon and scratch our brain stems and try to figure out new and interesting ways in which we can give back to the community. We dream up new contests, argue over site updates and plan new features to make Shadowness even better!
We've grown like crazy in the last couple of months, nearly quadrupling our size!
Here is what Shadowness Members have helped us achieve:
- We're now receiving 60,000+ pageviews a day. That's 2 MILLION pageviews monthly.
- On Facebook, we've reached 1,900 fans of the Shadowness page.
- Our daily output of articles is now 3 features per day, each article being viewed 300+ times and our Daily Inspiration article is veiwed more than 500 times and shared by over 700 people each week!
- The Shadowness community posts 500+ artworks and writes over 4,000 comments daily. If you want to see how we've grown, check the increase from just last week!
Here are the features that we've added in order to optimize your Shadowness experience!
- Memcached is up and running to help keep Shadowness lightning-fast.
- Fixed the issue with Shadowness updates ending up in spam folders
- Fixed the Shadowness timeout issue, should be no futher timeouts. :)
- For The WIN contest: http://shadowness.com/forthewin Deadline extended to May 21st!
Subscribing is a great win-win situation. You gain more profile options AND more uploads, plus more subscribers = more contests and bigger prizes!
Shadowness also accepts donations! Donating to Shadowness is easy, and you can donate as little as 1 dollar, or as much as you like.
Donating and Subscribing makes it much easier for Shadowness to give back to the community in the form of contests, prizes, commissions and new features like print sales! Every little bit helps!

Please help us in our cause, by Donating or Subscribing. Every little bit helps, and we had a record number of subscribers last week! Thanks guys, we really appreciate the support! We want to create great contests and features for the Shadowness Community, but we need your help!
I was wondering why all of a sudden I was getting emails saying when someone commented etc lol. I thought it was due to changing browsers lol.
Great to see so many new people coming over these ways :D
