Rare Update From Aron

19 Apr 2015

Posted by Aron in Otaku Network

Hello everyone~

 

As some of you noticed the chat had been down for a while without any word on it actually being fixed or not. I can safely say that the chat has been fixed and is currently working again (for those of you who actually use it).

 

The reason for this was that I was finally able to get around to paying the bills for the website~

 

Thanks to a few generous users I was able to save a bit on my end for the software license we use to run the website. Even with that though, I had to pay a little over $200 on my end for the rest of the license and hosting costs which includes domains and what not.

 

Many of you have been asking what exactly is going to happen to the website, as it is now... we've kinda just been sitting here for quite a while looking the same without anything actually being done. This is quite obviously my fault (not sarcasm).

 

Thanks to my lack of urgency we are kinda stuck in the middle of the a... transition period if you will, between versions of our website software. We are currently a version behind from what is currently the most..well current. The newer version has quite a few features that we look forward to implementing, as it changes the focus into a more social website, rather than just a forum. The issue we have is that because this is a large update to the software, any past extra features that we have made to the website will be unusable as well as any cosmetic changes (themes. As such we have decided to hold off on any big changes until we feel we can update to the newer version and take advantage of it.

 

I'm sorry for the lack of updates, we're trying hard...slowly.

Not So Wonderful News

01 Apr 2015

I'm sorry everyone, I didn't check the date. I looked at the ON Paypal, and it's still pretty much empty. It turns out the donation we were so excited about was fake. Good job, whoever did that z.z I deleted the donation from the system.

 

So yeah, looks like most of the stuff we were going to buy is going to have to wait...probably indefinitely for a lot of it...

 

I did end up buying us a Minecraft Server before I realized that, so look forward to that.

 

 

Also, in actual site news, you may have noticed that the chatroom is down. Once again, our IPBoard License is expired~

So yeah, feel free to donate, if you can. Otherwise it'll be back up whenever Aron or I have the clams to shell out $70.

Wonderful News

01 Apr 2015

Posted by Mura in Otaku Network

Thanks to a generous donation from an amazing member, we'll never have to worry about money again~

 

Hosting and site licensure are no longer even an issue. In fact, we'll be upgrading to a needlessly expensive package, with more bandwidth than we could ever use~

 

Also be on the lookout for site improvements in the near future. Now that we can afford professional programmers, the sky is the limit. Some things we'll see soon:

  • An Avatar System
  • The completion of Project Azure, the ON Game
  • Anime Viewer
  • Manga Reader
  • Japanese Goods Store
  • Badass layout improvements for the site
  • A free piece of cake sent to each and every user on a weekly basis

 

Also I might be using some of the money for tea.

 

Such an exciting piece of news, I hope you all stay with us to see what wonderful places this will take us~

 

.....I'm sorry.
