beleive it or not, we got 1000 members in under 2 years roughlymnatively orignally, I did it before I will fo it again most likely, albiet i have less time to work on it.

Also I;ma active on lots of social media, so if i get the people i know over here after i get some content, should not be hard.

I stated this  Quarterly goals thing because i need to be using GU as a "practice of best practices" as is I have a shot of controlling the web presence of an international company,  and I wanna be ready for the interview.

I;m going to try and do this at the end of each Month after the quarter ends.

So for the last 3 months of 2020:

What was accomplished

1. Migration to a host and multiple years of hosting set up.
2. Maintenance page up, and site plan made.
3. Fixing (replacing) the database errors caused by Rowan's deletion of the database (Which actually started like in July upon review of the admin logs....)
4. reserving as many names as possible for returning members.

What was NOT accomplished yet

1. Site Base redesign.
2. re-implementation of the GU reporter code and GUR.
3. Migration from SMF to a platform that can handle being a one stop shop.
4. The GU app
5. New Logo

What has been accomplished in the first month of 2021

1. Domain name secured for years to come.

Q1 2021 goals

1. Finish basic redesign of main site
2. Get GUR back up and running correctly in new design
3. New Logo finished and New GU banner Done
4. Get Zel's svc repository running.

Q2 2021 Goals.

1. Get racing subsystem operational and in beta
2. Get blogger/Writing system operation and in Beta
3. Get art gallery into operational and into Beta
4. Set up Cafe Press.
5. Finish any outstanding Q1 goals

Q3 goals

1. Finish Q2 goals and get at least once system into Release format.
2. Have saved enough money to hire an App developer to help make the GU app.

Q4 goals,
1. Get the site back to at least 1000 members, with 100 actives.
2. start forming affiliations with other websites.
3. Get non obtrusive advertising set up. (see the buttons on the bottom SMF/Helios puts on there? stuff like that.)

Ideally by the end of 2021 I want everything back up and running.  probably not going to happen given my job, but we'll see.  These goals are site wide only, and do not include any projects or personal content I will be making.

I love the resilience of this site. It's like Tombstone: the website too tough to die (also so tough we have our own fight game)!

Are we going to have animated custom avatars again? Mine doesn't seem to be moving.

Everything is a direct port.  If they aren’t working, it’s a bug i need to figure out.
Edit: I checked your avatar, and it is a png.  I’m reasonably certain that pngs can’t animate with out serversidee support, as is yours doesn’t animate on a direct link  either.  Try using a gif

Also as the down time, the domain host, enom, had subcontractors do the domain names.  They then took them back in house.  Somehow during that switch my account got lost.  I wasn’t able to log in to correct the now missing credit card.  On thd brightside, gu is now registered fir the next 4 years, at a pretty good discount.

Some one emptied the indexes on Christmas.  As for maintenance mode, not sure why it came back on ,  I had it running live after the attack

Underconstruction page is up.

the main computer which i have all the site stuff on has been very....well hard touse for multiple reasons.  but  suffice it to say, its very frustrating and not conductive to work, when i can't even get the mouse to move properly.

I've ordered some stuff that hopefully makes this easier,  but as of right this second it takes 3 hours to do ten minutes of work, and I don;t have that kind of time, nor that kinda of patience, at least not any more.   And I;m adhd anyway, so i tend to find  Results= fun, fighting the  software= work, so double not conductive to getting anything done.

Uh, last time I checked, anything with Link and/or Zelda in it is a Nintendo IP. Just because the graphics are a little different doesn't change that fact.

hence why thetribal stain glass won;t work.  sprites can be a sperate file as well.  but if the bundled graphics are generic theme friendly rel;igiuos symbols...

Anyway I think we'd probably need to do that anyway, just have the program have graphics packs, and each user distribute thier own.

i have been extraordinarily busy, esp considering the time of year, but I do plan to have a maintenance page up soon, actually, it should have been up three weeks ago, but things are kinda..hellish around here for time.

Which costume do you want to see the most.

No, he threw a hissy fit and demanded to know in public why I was inserting these symbols into Hyrule, same general idea as  you are are now, but in MUCH MUCH  less polite terms, to the point someone ELSE was gonna ban him, except I said no, and explained it to him. Then he apologized and avoided a ban,.  Ill give you the same answer I gave him, because they were there to begin with, and the response I gave him, which he failed to do, if you keep the feel of he game correct and  consistent, I'm fine with removing these things, as I said above.  The Lens of Turth though if I make the graphics is being made with he Zelda 2 mystic cross on it, as it was originally intended.

As for posting graphics HERE,  as long as its not Nintendo IP, they won;t say anything.  Which is PART of the reason the Christian imagery works, because they can;t say shit about it and it fits the original game.

That being said, as i said I'm looking do it as a patch that's optional.  I see no reason to include it bundled with the program.
