Hey guys! It has certainly been a rough few weeks trying to get the server up and running again.
Come to find out, the security issue was some sort of breach in one of the wordpress plugins we were using. The plugin finally updated with a solution (as you can tell by the website being back up again!) and we’re happy to be live after all this time! Even though there has been a fix, we’re not happy with our experience here at wordpress and so behind the scenes we’ll be searching for a new framework for the website.
In the meantime, the website may take some time to gain some traction again. This means gifts may be given a little slower but there are returning artists who will be seeking the inspiration now that the site is back! The best thing we can do right now is get the word out that the website is back in action and continue to submit your requests. With the new year, I will be working extra hard to bring some of your ideas to life as well. It’s important to me that we bring the Starcall spirit back to the art community! 🙂
If you haven’t read up on the latest patreon post, here’s a little blurb to get you caught up on what we’re planning:
The website will be back up and running by the end of the week.
It’s exactly as we left it – so let me tell you a bit about what’s been going on.
Wordpress has been an absolute mess and we’ve actually been searching for some new framework. This is requiring us to rewrite the code for the site but since it’s taking us some time, we’re going to keep the project public on the current site until we’re ready to make the switch. All gifts and requests already submitted will be transferred when it’s time! If you see anything buggy on the website in the meantime, be sure to report it at firstname.lastname@example.org!
While we’re going to have a larger public to-do list posted of some future additions and changes soon, here are some more immediate deadlines for what’s the come!
Project Starcall website will be live again by Friday, December 21st. You can submit your requests and start fulfilling gifts that inspire you again! The forums will become active with study sessions and monthly challenges!
Project Starcall Development To-Do List will be live to the public on January 1st. This will keep you up to date on what’s to come. You’ll be able to see how close we are to launching on the new framework and what features will come afterwards. Feel free to make any suggestions regarding the website as well!
We’re happy to be back and to have YOU guys back. Let us know if you have any questions!
There was also a minor purge of accounts, so be sure to read the latest news update here!
