Hail and Fair Greetings My Friends,
I find myself in much better spirits these days, feeling more like my old self again. I want to thank everyone for their kind words and support, it's good to be surrounded by friends at times like these. I know so many of you have been dying for some word on RST's progress this week. I am still making progress, just not as quickly as any of us would like unfortunately. I had not expected the last burst of financial support toward the site change goal from the Allies at TES Alliance to come so soon! Upon reaching the goal line, it was time to kick the site change into high gear. This change has been a long time coming.
When I started TESA, I always knew we would get to this point, so I guess it's been in the works since the beginning. It's very important that the site come to full power before I finish RST, because that will be her home when I finally pass her into your waiting hands!
The site change is rather dramatic, although the workload is a bit daunting. As you can see by this graphic, the old blue of TESA has been replaced by this rather medieval charcoal and black theme. I've added several more ES images throughout the site. Also added some new music to the jukebox. We're doing away with the site features that were in little or no use, such as the lousy nuke evo downloads module, and adding some new things to really make it a real hot spot for ES fans. I won't spoil it for you! We are at about midway through the change right now. I suspect the forum conversion to be finished tomorrow and after that, my team and I will have to get things set up and we'll be ready to open our doors again!
There will be a whole host of new things to explore so be sure to drop by and check it out when we launch! Modders, be sure to bring your mods to TESA and be among the first to host with the hottest upcoming site!
LOL Okay, enough plugging TESA. Once things settle down a bit, probably by about mid week, my attention will be returned to RST in force. Things for RST have not stopped through this, despite my heavy workload with the site I still find time to work on it a bit. I hope by next weekend to have enough done for a proper update and some new screens. I am quickly running out of summer, so things have got to stay in high gear for awhile it seems! hmy:
I will do my best to finish by the end of August at the latest. Have had some set backs in the voice actor area so don't know if they will be ready by then. We'll see. Proper update next weekend, and new pics too!
