Things are looking weird around here…

Recent WordPress updates caused the index page to go completely insane. Being that I have zero experience with actually customizing WordPress, I’ve been spending my Saturday fumbling around, trying to rebuild the site from scratch to protect it from this in the future. I’m not terribly happy with the changes rolling out with 3.7, so all I can say to my fellow devs is – be careful when you upgrade! Even if the worst had happened, we still have backups, but dealing with a failure like this is always scary.

Aside from looking… well, horrible, there is a new addition to the header image. Rebmastu makes it a point to complain regularly about the difficult navigation on the site, and while no one has actually mentioned it to me, I’m sure some people have gotten confused by it in the past. There are now links in the header area to go to the various sections of the side, and the links to both the tumblr and twitter are in the sidebar.

Please let me know of any suggestions to make the site a little better right now. I’m infinitely frustrated with, well, everything, and the absolute last thing I want to do is roll out a site that is simply “good enough.” Well, that’s obviously what’s happened now, but hopefully there is some groundwork in place to make things better in the future.

Let this serve as a reminder: When you press that “update” button, never think to yourself, “this never goes wrong, but I definitely don’t want things going bad tonight!”

Does Turtle Paradise attract amazing people?

With our massive Shouoto and Lost Universe blowout yesterday, Rebmastu mentioned our current financial predicament involving the domain name renewal… And you guys stepped up to the plate. Hard. I mean it, that goal was knocked square out of the park, and I am totally baffled by how amazing you all are. I really don’t even know how to thank you guys ;_; We currently have nearly $90 in the pot (so to speak), meaning not only has the domain renewal fee been paid, but now we’re also able to pay for last month’s issues of Aria and Asuka, which… okay, I’ll admit it, we’ll be lucky if anywhere still has them in stock OTL But thanks to you guys, we still have a shot at getting current content!

So this is where I’ll open the floor for comments. I can’t make any guarantees, but what series do you guys want to see us release? Is it Barajou? Birdcage Manor? SLH? Junketsu+Kareshi? Mebius Gear? Lost Universe? Flower Thieves? Or perhaps some new projects? Like I said, I can’t make any guarantees, but this is a good place to let your comment be heard if you’re really itching for something =D

And again, we love you all so bad it hurts. So bad.

Comments closed! We still love you guys, but I think we’ve got enough to go on now =D Oh my God, I can’t believe no one wants Flower Thieves ;_;

Birdcage Manor and Omamori: Chapter 7 double-whammy!

The girl’s got good intentions, but someone, please, let her know she’s doing it wrong!

There’s not much these days that I hate more than a late release, but oh man, this week. Lucky sevens my ass! Reb’s computer is now a s’more, and I’ve got my computer on the operation table (i.e., my desk) acting as her hard drive’s reverse life support, sucking the juice out of it because ;lakfdj. Hopefully productivity won’t go down the hole because of this, but I’m not making any promises. I mean, we’re sharing a computer for now (new computer? On this budget?! HAHAHA, NO) and I sure as hell can’t scan while she’s translating! Oh well, forget about that now- it’s (a kind of late if we’re going EST) release time!

In this week’s installment of Birdcage! Answers? What the hell is exposition doing in my story about naked chicks and whores?!
Download Chapter 7 and wallow in despair!
Or just read Chapter 7 online! (and continue wallowing!)

Later, in Omamori chapter 7, we have… Mimori straightening out his priorities! Does anyone read this for the story?!
Stop being so self-centered and download Chapter 7 here!
Or get your reality check online!

Comments are super appreciated this time around since Reb’s been in a total “Hurrrr ;_;” mood since her laptop fried. And, uh, it’d do me a bit of good if she stopped wandering around in a funk, too ¯\(°_o)/¯

Polling is srs business!

He may not look it, but Viral is actually a canon whore

So apparently people feel strongly enough about Anise’s name change to utilize proxies! Don’t you guys have something better to do? Like messing with Saimoe?

Lulz aside, this act of stupidity will probably result in the results getting thrown out… Eh, but if we get proofs that no one’s proxying then I guess we’ll use it. But now it looks like it’s coming down to us, lawl

Forum down for maintenance

Well, I wasn’t gonna say anything, but this is taking a bit longer than expected. The forum is currently offline for an upgrade. I don’t suggest going there, things look seriously fruity right now.

Trust me on this one.
