Welcome!

Hi, my name is Iva and this is ¡APPROVED!, soon to become a complete replacement for my previous fanlistings' collective, LOVE. Until then, my joined fanlistings are here, so are the affiliates.

I've been running fanlistings ever since I was a teenager, and I'm 27 now. In the meantime, I went from a bedroom web 1.0 hack to a professional web designer with a couple of huge and well-paid jobs scored in the past decade. At some point, while messing with WordPress' multisite feature, I managed to screw up LOVE and I was somewhat surprised about how many trouble emails I got in only a couple of days, I even had one FL removed before I could even react. I realised that it could be because everyone wants to run FLs for squirrels, green and peace and because I was always known as an avid "hater" most TV shows and associated "ships" and "pairings"; but what they didn't know is how much my life and perspective have changed in the meantime.

Then I thought I'd come back. The teenager in me is still remembering being 19, surfing the web on dial up to read about Formula 1 and going gaga whenever I'd get approved. And back then, the word gaga had nothing to do with a creepy all-seeing-eye pop singer, mind you. Also, through fanlistings, I met one of my closest real-life friends, as well as one of my absolutely favourite Internet friends - Mira and Cristina. In fact, back in February 2005, we took some photos at the McDonald's here in Belgrade and told everyone we had The first fanlistings meet-up, ever. I am not sure if we really were the first, but I like to hope we were.

I am not sure what will become of ¡APPROVED!, and how long does this somewhat anachrone concept has to go, but let's enjoy its second walk down the street of fame.

This website looks best in webkit browsers, such as Google Chrome and Apple Safari. But it looks pretty good in Firefox 3.6 and Internet Explorer 8, too.
