A new version of Invision (the software running VGS) has been released, and in order to keep things running smoothly I'll have to take the site down for a bit. Here's what I need to do:
Back up the custom styles etc. that have been built for VGS Take down the site Update the software Re-apply the customizations Confirm that it all works as expected Put the site back up Barring any issues I don't envision this taking a terribly long time, maybe an hour.
The site will go down sometime during the day this upcoming Friday, September 4th.
I'll be aiming for around noon or so, but we'll have to see. I'll post a reminder an hour or so before I press the big red button.
During the downtime, you can feel free to join us on Discord over here: https://discord.gg/5tuxaqD
Or better yet take a walk, stretch your legs. Maybe grab a Starbucks. I'll take a grande PSL, thanks.
I see a future where we have cool banners at the top of announcements, ones I didn't whip up in 2 minutes. Really wicked awesome Baubles and Charms that actually look good. Subscription tiers with banners representing them, and site articles with nice drawings, and a front page, and a logo that isn't just some text in an 8-bit style font, and this and that and those and these...
I see a future where @BortLicensePlate and @CasualCart help us to make this place look...
Everyone please join me in welcoming the newest members of the VGS Staff, those two inanimate objects I mentioned above! 😄
The Cart and License Plate are gonna GET animated as they help us spruce this place up with... well all the stuff I whined about in the opening paragraph, and more! Please look forward to it!
