This month's What's Up Wednesday has a lot to be shared, so let's just jump right into it!
As was expressed in the previous news post, I had been fully intending to continue the monthly updates, admittedly foolishly expecting that grief would be an easy thing to go through. Conversely, I took the past several months for a lot of self-care, which I feel was the best course of action at the end of the day.
During this downtime, artist superbearwars felt it was within their best interest to step down, so we bid them farewell. Because of this, marking output will be considerably slower than previously, though we'll continue keep you updated as always! We aim to be as transparent as we can be with these things.
On the other end of the spectrum, we've recently added a new member to the development team. With this, staff have begun joining the site to start getting acquainted with the features and functions. While we still have quite a ways to go before we are ready for Alpha, this is a pretty exciting step in that process!
Now that I am back in the saddle, I took about a month to catch up with clients that had graciously been waiting for me, and then the past half month has been all about ClanHeart! I've continued development on the management side of things, which has been progressing very well.
This month's focus will continue to be on management tools as well as user preferences. Although this is the main focus of the month, I'm very excited to be back to working on ClanHeart, so it's highly likely I will end up poking here and there at a lot more than just these two things.
Last, but most certainly not least, I'd like to express my immense gratitude to all of you! Truly thank you from the bottom of my heart for all of your understanding and patience while I went through such a sudden event in my life. After all of this waiting, it's time to crack on, so let's get to it!
