The plan for 2019 - VirusZero - 12-29-2018 12:34 AM

As 2018 draws to a close it's gotten me thinking again. Mostly about the year that's passed, things I wanted to do and didn't, things I intend to do and that kind of thing.

I was crazy busy in the summer, as people might have noticed. My family definitely noticed... So I really didn't get a ton of time to do anything.

This week though I had some time so I've put in place a few changes that I was thinking about earlier this year and moreso the last few days. One of the major core changes is the depreciation of the roleplay section. It's no longer visible unless you log in.
I'm not getting rid of them by any stretch. However only members can see or post in them.
Truth is though I haven't called myself a roleplayer in a very long time. I haven't had time for starters. And I think that it's a bit unfair to keep billing the site as a roleplay site when we really aren't anymore. So that's another thing that is going to be changing very soon.

I've also gone ahead and moved the gaming stuff to it's own section. The plan is to develop that going forward into 2019. The references to roleplay will be removed and instead replaced with gaming.

I know I've mentioned a new theme a few times but that is something that is finally happening. My plan is to have it done by Jan 4th 2019.

There will be a bit of downtime leading up to the new theme (because I also have some back end changes to make too). But it shouldn't take more than an hour to have all that stuff done. So the downtime will likely not even be noticed.

The backend elements have been completed (it took about an hour as I anticipated. Though most of that was actually just me forgetting I needed to force the system to see the new change.)

Though if you notice anything that doesn't work properly or gives you an error message please let me know so I can get it fixed.

The major change was moving away from EasyApache 3 to EasyApache 4. (This is because support for EasyApache 3 ends in a few days.) This is partly what caused things to take time. Since when I moved to the new version it also updated the PHP to a higher version and I forgot to account for that. So what I had to do was reinstall the old version (which uninstalled the new version) then I could install the new version of PHP over top of that. This way it kept the old files and updated them to the new version.

Kinda a shame with the role play section but glad you're keeping it as a side thing. Though I agree about the change. Seems like more a gaming forum.
