Did a few small menu changes to the top. Moved the BitTorrent Sync to the info section since it seems like a bit more of a niche thing. I also added a new page called “Draft Feed” that links directly to my tumblr and pulls in any of the draft posts I have been making over there. This was done for those that want to see my little teasers and progress reports on the video/projects/ideas but didn’t want to have to go to a whole other site to do it. I am also considering making a suggestion page for those that want to make suggestions about the site. I am not much of a webmaster so I am trying the best I can to make this place easy to visit.
Now that I am back home I am going to concentrate a lot on the video, but that does not really lead to a huge amount of valid updates for the next few weeks. As such I want to return the idea of the weekly random with a few changes.
The biggest change is that the image won’t carry with it a written story. I have my work cut out for me story-wise with the video and other plans, so I just won’t have the time. The other big change is it will be a bit more centralized on characters I have already developed, rather then entirely random. I just don’t have the time to do any more character building until the new models are official.
I am also going to try reusing themes each week. So if I give an option of four image ideas, the one that wins is made and the other three will likely roll over for another chance the next week. This will make it easier for me to add ideas to the mix rather then coming up with four or five new ideas every time. I may change this up based on other factors, like if I want an entirely new theme set for that week.
Lastly, whether the image is animated or not will depend heavily on the time open to me, so while I would love for them all to be animated, some may be static like the older randoms. Also to cut down on fat all the polls after this will be basic polls put into asides, rather then large posts. Make things a bit smoother.
Overall I need something that can help me figure out a more consistent update without taking too much time from the video. I want to release this video thing “Soon™” but not give up on more consistent updates.
Thus, let us start up the vote which will run till early Thursday.
