As posted in my journal, your favorite developer is back!
Lots of things around the site have been sorely neglected in the past three years - and I'm ready to change that tide!
So strap in, buckle up, and prepare for the wildest ride of your Route 50 career.
We're doing this thing, man. We're making this happen.
Update: Gallery submissions are now auto-approved :)
Wow. Groups, in general, have been sorely neglected.
My apologies for this one. Of all things, you'd think that the official group for the entire website would be frequently updated; but no!
The revamp of Route 50 is coming along swimmingly. I'm getting really impatient to release it, but we have to make sure to work out all the little bugs first, sadly. In fact, I'm working on upgrading Groups now, which is why I'm here and why I've realized how badly this group has been run!
Though, the one saving grace is that luckily all the lovely people of Route 50 keep a steady flow of Galleries submissions in the official groups, which is nice. So thank you to all contributors. :)
To all members, please feel absolutely free to post discussions or to submit to the gallery. If anyone can think of any interesting events we could run through this group, do let me know.
Here's a screenshot of the new groups page as my apologies!
I hope you're as excited for this revamp as I am. It really is improving everything drastically. I can't wait until everyone can use it. :D
Whew, it's taken us a long time (and Navarrdev's nearly gone crazy in the process), but we're essentially finished with groups. We'll be releasing them soon, yay!
If you'll take a look at the founding dates of some of the early groups, you'll see that they were founded in July -- whaa?! Yeah, I started the Groups system a long time ago and they literally sat there for months and months until we finally busted our butts to finish them in a week's time.
Additionally, if you weren't aware, Xetajaadm has taken the reigns on managing some official Groups. She's made some really awesome icons for them too! There'll be contests and events through them, and perks for being a member when we open up TEA (our planned site newspaper). Check 'em out:
So, what's next on our Winter Update Pack list? Solve the following puzzle:
We've been making a lot of progress, woohoo!
What do you think so far? Please comment~
