Community - Minor improvements and support for 2018

Post by Khuri » Sun Dec 10, 2017 12:42 pm

I'd like to say a huge "THANK YOU!" to everyone who supported our Pledgie-Campaign in the past. You guys rock! :)


With 2018 coming up we've changed our past Pledgie-Campaign to a more direct one. Help us cover our server costs for 2018.
If you're interested in supporting us, you can find out more information on how to do so on our Pledgie-site.



Changes to the website
We have now moved the website to a new webserver to reduce our yearly costs and made a few minor improvements on the website itself:
  • We've implemented some caching options to improve site speed
  • The main change has been done to the websites theme. There's been a slight overhaul to make the website look a bit slimmer than in the past, as well as making the layout responsive.
    That means you can now visit the website on your mobile/tablet and just read your currently required guides without any clutter on the site.
Thank you for your support, and we hope you continue to enjoy this website!

Thank you bitnykk!

You mean contributers in the way of adding/editing guides?
If you're up to date on that, that sure could be an option :)

You guys have done an excellent job taking the community to places I wish Basher could have gone, and you're continuing to do it without advertisements or other disruptions. So well done, and I'm happy to donate a little for your fees.

Given the glacial pace of game changes, maybe you can take up reporting some of the semi-official RP news, like the Omega storyline that just started?

Unfortunately myself I'm not really in the loop when it comes to the game's content. If anyone would like to cover those news, be my guest ;)

Congratulations on reaching your goal! The AO community refuses to die.

As far as reporting on RP stuff, right now most of it is in the 4th Wall subforum on the official site.
