Hey guys, as you may have noticed the Dragon Contest was delayed as I had to migrate servers. Fortunately my new provider gave me a great setup, better load balancing, AND a better price. I think the site should be more stable.
In fact, I managed to put comments back in finally! Which really was “get off my butt and wire in Disqus.”
Now, that being said, some more news!
First, I am planning to make improvements to the site. It’s been awhile and though the code is stable, the interface is stale and I can make it cross-device much easier. So for the next . . . well however long it takes, yours truly is going to be tweaking and poking and making Seventh Sanctum version . . . er, well I’m not sure. But anyway, an upgrade to a slick, somewhat larger-fonted, better-laid-out interface. I want this to really feel like a utility.
Second, I am going to look at a variety of other features people suggested. Now as I’m using this as an excuse to stretch my creaky coding muscles, no promises on what goes in or out. But we’ll see – people had ideas ranging from oekaki, to a tumblr, to jam sessions, to podcasts . . .
Third, because this is going to be some work, I AM putting contests on hold for awhile. I’m not sure what form they’ll be back in or if I may replace them with something else. Basically I want to stay focused – and they can take surprising amounts of time, depending. The current winners will get their prizes (in fact I’m mailing them out as we speak).
Fourth, I do want to try and build some more community here, so suggestions welcome!
Fifth, I may be tying this in to a few other projects, partially as a way of realizing your requests. Just stay tuned for some hopeful surprises . . .
That’s it gang, so keep on generating!
