It doesn't feel like we're into the fifth month of 2020 yet, but then again the days start to blend together when you're setting your own hours. Anyhow I realize I forgot to post one of these in April, things got a little hectic with stuff that's been happening. There are only a couple things to go over this time, but they're kinda of big updates. Firstly I wanted to just say that I'm working on getting more time put into the website and community. I want to work on getting the community more active and such, so I've been making it a goal to work on the community more. There are a number of things in the works, but for the most part I'll be working mostly on the community forums, and my personal areas of the website for now. Oh and the theme, the theme is important so yeah that's also a thing being worked on. Next I want to just let everyone know that I am working on getting the Champion's Den and Evergloam Nightingales guilds I run in the Elder Scrolls Online more active. Both guilds have kind of just been sitting there, so like the community I want to get those active again. I will not be prioritizing these more than the community, but I'm hoping once I get more stuff done here, I'll have more time to run these guilds more actively. Other than that not much else going on, there we not many changes to my life because of the world events recently, and I've been pretty much just been doing the same things as normal. As for streaming, I've been having bad migraines because of the rainy season, so I'll try to stream as often a as I can as consistently as I can, but as I always say personal health takes priority over gaming, and if I don't have the energy or patience to stream, I'm not going too.

Just a heads up, I am currently working on organizing and in some areas rebuilding the community. This is the time of the year for spring cleaning and well, also a little stuck at home when not at work so I figured this would be a good time to work on the back end stuff for the community. The biggest thing that me and the other administrators have been working on is a complete rebuild of the dedicated server that operates pretty much all of the community's servers and websites. Not going to go too much into it for security and boredom reasons, but we are now running the game servers and other services we host on CentOS using docker. This allows us to perform maintenance faster and causes less issues when one server needs to be updated, but updating it will cause issues with other stuff. At this time we are not running more then the minecraft, modded minecraft, and ark servers but in the future we may put up a monthly/event/limited time game server for some added fun and community engagement, more on that later as it's debated. Also the quarter day restarts on the game servers are gone, we now have a program watching the containers and will let us know when one is having issues. For the personal side of the community, I am going to be focusing more on website design and coding more than applications and games. I feel I've been spreading myself a little too thin recently working on all different kinds of programming projects, so I am now going to focus and work on specializing in website design. There will be areas of the website setup for this as I work on it, and for now I am only working on projects for friends and myself. There will also be a dedicated blog section, as I thought it would be important to separate my personal posts from the community related ones. So as aforementioned I will be setting up a dedicated personal blog section, and the community based stuff will be posted here in the forums area. That's all for now, I will post a proper update for April and/or May at a later date as the community is re-organized. Thanks for reading, -XerShade
