Community Update, May 2019

So it’s that time of the month again, time for the monthly update. So a bit of exciting news starting out of the gate, I have recently been putting a lot of work in to planning out the website and the website for The Society of Creative Streamers.

So let’s start off at home first. I have moved the website back to WordPress as while I like Invision Power Board, it just didn’t seem appropriate for what I wanted to do here. I do have plans to make use of the software, but that is for later in the post. Instead I will be using WordPress as it is simpler for me to post short posts, rants, updates, etc on WordPress, so expect more frequent posts, content, and other cool things. Also I am currently working on a custom theme, so if the website is a bit of a mess for most of May and June, sorry in advance.

Now the exciting bit! I have been working on the community website for the The Society of Creative Streamers group that I am a member of for the last little while, and after banging my head on multiple walls for a few months I have a rough idea of how I want to get all of that sorted. I will be using my, now, spare copy of Invision Power Board to manage the content, and I think it will be better used for a larger website than a smaller one, this one.

Over the next couple of months I will be pretty much focusing most of my non-relaxing efforts into getting these two websites off the ground and working. So in addition to health issues because of the rainy season this will mean less streams possibly, though I will try to stream at least once a week, and who knows there may be some sneaky web development streaming on occasion.

Community Update, April 2019

So it’s been a while since I posted something or worked on the community so I figured I would post about what’s been happening recently. First some slight malfunctions. Earlier this month my dedicated server almost imploded. Fortunately before it actually did I managed to get most of my data off of it, note I said most. Unfortunately while I did get a file that was supposed to be the backup for the websites database it was corrupted and I was not able to estore the data, as such I will need to re-do everything on the website.

Now on to brighter news, I have been working with The Society of Creative Streams group I am a member of to work on a new website for them so we could have a nice hub for all of our content to be displayed on. Progress has been a little slow, and don’t really have anything to show yet but figured I would just let everyone know that I was working on it.

As for community updates, the vanilla minecraft server has been reset, and is now on season two. We are also hosting a FTB: Sky Odyssey server for modded right now. The discord and community websites have been slowly undergoing an update and I am hoping to get the updates out as soon as possible, but as mentioned above some technical issues have put a little bit of a wrench in those plans.

I have also been putting a lot of time into playing Elder Scrolls Online so expect some content related to that soon, though there will not be any video content for this as if I so much as load OBS ESO throws a tantrum. Other games I’ve been streaming are Divinity: Original Sin, Stellaris, and Ocarina of Time Randomizer. I don’t really have a schedule for streams right now due to health issues so just keep an ear out on discord, I will post to the videos channel when I go live.

Anyhow that’s it for now, hope everyone enjoys the new content and updates and thanks for reading,
