Update News

I've finally started some of the major updates to the site. It's going to be a slow process, but at least it's a beginning.

+ I've replaced all of the links to the Maps & Google Street View Images for the Season 7 posts.
+ The first part of Season 1 has been updated w/new locations, but it's also a bit of a mess right now. Old Photobucket images must be replaced and the line spacing for the addresses is screwed up.

So I hope you'll forgive the way the older posts look right now. Depending on the season, they're in various stages of disarray. Please be patient with me while I work to improve the site. :)

SPN Moments 1

8 Year Anniversary!

It was on this date in 2012 that I moved my SPN Locations List from my journal to be it's own community here on LJ.

I want to thank you all for sticking around (even with the lack of updates) and using the information here. It's always great to know that the list is useful to people whether they're simply curious where a certain scene was filmed or are hunting down locations when they visit the Vancouver area.

A task this big (and now 15 years-worth long) cannot be done alone. I'd also like to express my gratitude to all of those who have helped me find various locations over the years. So many locations couldn't have been found or narrowed down without your invaluable assistance. You all rock! :D

Taking Stock

Been taking a good look at all the Season Location posts and seeing what needs attention. Sadly, a good portion of the posts are way out of date, have missing info., and too-small caps. All of this will need to be fixed BEFORE I can properly make my Area Location+ posts.

+ Note: Area Location posts will be a series of posts based on the various areas (Vancouver & beyond). Much like is already available with the Google Maps. There will also be separate lists for Riverview, the Watchman Set, & the Back 40 Dog Park. These Area Location posts will be ideal for people who actually hunt down & visit the locations in & around Vancouver, BC. ;)

The Run-Down:
* Seasons 1-8: Need to be thoroughly updated w/bigger caps, missing locations, & Google Map coordinates.
* Season 7 & 8: Need nearly all of the caps/images transferred to SlickPic & linked from there.
* Season 9: Needs new map images.
* Seasons 10 & 11: Needs new map images & missing Google Map coordinates.
* Season 12: Needs missing Google Map coordinates.
* Season 13: Needs missing Google Map coordinates.

Yep, that's a lot of work. And then there's updating the Google Map info.: Removing all the locations that no longer exist and adding in a bunch of missing locations at Riverview & the Back 40 Dog Park. Phew!

My hope is to continue working on this overhaul of the site throughout the rest of this year & the next so that by the time I need to add the Season 15 Locations in (Fall of 2020), that I'll have everything else fixed & updated properly. Don't know if I'll get it all done, but that's the goal.

I'll try my best to update my progress of the overhaul on the community's Twitter: @SPN_Locations.

Update News: Season 14 Is Finished!

I've completed the update of the site with everything Season 14! :D

Check out the Master Post
to access all the page links for Seasons 1-14, PDFs for Seasons 1-14, and a full set of links to Vancouver area Google Maps, including a complete map of all the SPN Locations.

I'm glad that I got S14 completed in time for people attending the Vancouver convention this coming weekend, but I wish I could have gotten more accomplished. I still haven't gotten posts made based on areas in Vancouver done and the Google Maps need to be reworked to eliminate locations that no longer exist.

And since I was so busy with S14, I knew I also needed to take a look at the past Season pages & see how they were holding up after the whole PhotoBucket debacle a while back. I had re-uploaded a lot of caps to SlickPic & re-linked them, but as I recalled I didn't get to everything. Looking to Twitter for help, I got a volunteer to check the pages for me (thank you @HotlipsHarkness!).

Sadly, there are issues with some of the older Season pages such as maps that won't load and caps or images that have an ugly PhotoBucket logo on them. Sorry I don't have time to go through & fix them all before the weekend. I hope you'll understand that I really need a break from working on locations for a little bit. :P

I wish those attending VanCon this weekend & anybody doing any Location Hunting all the best, safe travels, and Happy Hunting!!!
