Districts Updates

Districts is a site directory created on Neocities for Neocities, aimed to make finding sites relevant to your interests easier. We sort sites into different categories, which sum up either the topic of the site or the interests of the person behind it.

Sites are listed alongside their buttons if they have any, and can be sorted into up to two districts! If they would fit in more than two, we choose based on what features most heavily on the site.

It's worth noting that we don't inherently condone or agree with the opinions displayed on any site listed, and do not take responsibility for the content of any site (besides our own). Downloads are at your own risk.

We also have no affiliation with Neocities itself.

History

The original 'districts' URL was saved a while ago by former Neocities user and Districts staff member, dotcomboom. The first version of Districts didn’t go far, but at its core, still had the same concept - a Geocities neighborhoods inspired list of tags, which would later become the districts themselves.

Districts developed with the help of many people, such as lempamo, who built the first real iteration of Districts (taking inspiration from DMOZ), and the then-Neocities users of Somnolescent, mainly mariteaux, Capy and Cheren. Districts soon became what most people on Neocities know today, complete with its old mascot, Seb.

Districts had been left to rest again at the start of 2019, until March, when a series of events led to Districts finding its way into the hands of former Somnolescent members Cheren and Neo. The two stepped up from lead seeker and friend of the site (and guest artist) to lead the project, together.

Staff

Cheren

Cheren

Cheren is one debatably-infested half of what makes Districts what it is, seeking out most of the sites you'll find here, sorting them into districts and writing descriptions. He runs two sites, bugland and viian, which are in Petsburg and Tokyo.
Neo

Neo

Neo is the very loud very pink other half of the power behind Districts, managing the listings and envisioning what lays ahead in the future of the site... He no longer uses Neocities himself, but you can find his art here.
