Recently, we've been a bit silent about what we're working on and haven't been as active as usual. There's a reason for that but we hope that you are enjoying the new clothing update while we work.
First off, we are completely remodeling the back-end of our site to make it faster and more secure than ever before. With this, we are also working on scalability issues that we've faced with the current setup. When we would have 50+ users active at one time the site would be too slow to enjoy. To combat this, we are working on more scalable options for the forums, messaging, and rendering systems. We are learning new stuff everyday and working to make the site super fast and secure for ALL of our users.
Secondly, we are planning what we want the user interface to look like. Before you get worried, we aren't changing much BUT we do need to work on the long overdue light/dark themes and maybe a couple more. What we've been planning are mainly things to make the site more alive and pop out. Better buttons, notification popups and color schemes will hopefully help this out.
Lastly, the game client is being redeveloped from the ground up. Not only is this difficult and time consuming but Mark and I are having to learn a lot more. This kind of plays into speed and efficiency as well. We want our game workshop and client to be very versatile and have the ability to handle a large number of users at one time. In order to do this we will need to put a lot of time and research into the methods we're using to create the platform.
As always, thanks for the enormous amount of support from our community as we develop our platform. Hope that this blog post clarified what we've been up to!
