A Status Update from Jstar
Hey, everyone. Over the past few weeks, it’s become obvious that Jay-Cast has kind of been a little slow when it came to releasing content. The last post created was on January 1st about a new year, and then nothing. I’d like to be transparent about this.
What happened over the past few weeks is the fault of two things. The one that isn’t that great to say is personal stuff. I had a great winter break that got me to do some big things for Jay-Cast, but it has since finished and I’ve returned to my normal self, with a schedule and school and regular things. This is also why Jay-Cast has slowed things down a bit, where I haven’t really been able to do a lot for the community I’m in. I plan to get a better grasp at this and I hope to have things resolved and back on track as soon as possible.
The second thing is something greater. It’s simply that I’ve been working on a project related to Jay-Cast. It’s something that I have almost-full assurance it’ll take our community to the next level. It’s a little ambitious and I hope that it’ll break a few stereotypes in the process. In order to do so, however, I have to take my time on it, as I don’t want to announce it only to drop it once I hit a wall of thinking. I’m not the only person working on it, mind you, but this is seriously planning out to be a pretty big thing for me and everyone working on it. I hope that it’ll succeed and that you guys end up enjoying its final result. I just hope you guys stay tuned for the next two months for when I send out a teaser for it.
I plan to have my 50th issue released hopefully next weekend. This would have been it if it wasn’t that it’s the 50th one, which I aim to have it be my biggest article yet. I plan to go all out in what it’ll hold, so please keep in eye out for when it’ll release.
One last thing: If you guys were dedicated enough, I did release a similar post to this earlier this weekend. Sadly, it got deleted along with two other recent posts from a web hosting migration that occurred. I started work on my original status update when I got the email saying it was done, only to see that the publicly real server migration began working later that night. I effectively lost everything done in those few hours, which included my status update, minor revisions on Dracus’ recent post, and the worst part is losing TacticalTracer’s review of The Evil Within 2. I’ll link her playing it in a video below, and it was a pretty good review, so it’s simply depressing that it got lost in the abyss. I read it, and it was clear that a lot of effort was put into it.
I’ll make sure that something like this doesn’t happen again with more consistent website backups. Until then, I’d like to thank you for your support as we continue to head into a new year and that we’re starting to edge into the proximity of our first anniversary. Until that happens, thanks for reading, watching and supporting.
