Now It's 16 Years
Well, Cloudflash is now 16 years old. I made 2 new C-Mix comics to celebrate. It hasn't been a terrible year, has it? Sure, I've only made 3 new comics so far this year, but at least they were kinda bigger than normal. I made some decent progress on the redesign, too, so that should count for something! I've been busy working on my house, get off my back. Okay, fine, it's been a terrible year. Are you happy now?!
Re:Spite Down / Artwork Added
Re:Spite is temporarily redirecting to Cloudflash while I sort out a little Re:Spite problem. I'm hoping to get it to go back to the proper Re:Spite website tomorrow! Anyway, just wanted to let the masses know in case they wound up at Cloudflash and wondered what's going on.
Over the past week or two, I finally created the Artwork section. Well, it's still a work in progress, but at least it's possible to view some of my art now. A good portion of it (36%) of the art is from Re:Spite! I suppose over the past 4 years, that's been mostly all I've been drawing. Perhaps it was around 2010 when my artistic abilities transitioned from "serviceable" to "pretty good", then to "something people could actually like" in 2012. Anyway, so I guess that explains why a lot of it is Re:Spite-based.
I sure took my sweet time, but I finally updated the forum to kinda match the rest of the website. There's still work to be done on that front, but at least it looks a little more presentable now! I also made a new C-Mix yesterday. It's been a while, haven't made one since Cloudflash's anniversary last year. Speaking of which, that's coming up again kinda soon, so you can probably expect at least a couple more comics when that time comes. Hopefully I'll keep working on updates, I do hate to see my website in such a bare state!
Return of the Forum
Well, I finally revived the forum. I figured I should upgrade it to the latest version of phpBB since it'd have to be redesigned to match the site, anyway. It took a while 'cause it was a bit of a hassle to save all the old user accounts and posts. Everything's been restored, so our old members can enjoy cringing out to their archived posts from 10 years ago. Meanwhile, new accounts will see a wasteland of a forum with practically zero posts on it! I forgot to make a backup of some files before the big move, so we lost all our old attachments and most of our avatars.
We don't have a chatbox at the moment, but I'll see if I can get one up and running again. Other than that, I guess the forum is open for business. I'll update the hideous default graphics as we go along.
