Recently I've been assigning work themes for the various months, and thought I would share June's, since it's very tangible.
The website coding goal I've set up for June is to get fixes and improvements done across the board. That means all of the small sites will receive updates this month, as well as the big sites. So look forward to a lot of fixes happening all over the place :D
Just a quick update to let you know that Art Abyss is getting an overhaul just like Photography Abyss did. Our ETA is probably Monday or Tuesday.
Another update on infinite scrolling. It's looking like keeping infinite scrolling limited to just logged in users is going to end up working out best. We actually did end up taking a hit on the advertising side of things. If the policies of some networks chance, we should be able to re-introduce infinite scrolling for non logged in users.
But for the time being - just login/register and you can use infinite scrolling all you want :D
We are testing infinite scrolling on Wallpaper Abyss! Let us know what you think, and enjoy!
Please let us know if you notice anything odd around the sites over the next day or two. We had an unexpected crash last night and have had to deal with a less than happy server this morning.
That being said; things are looking fine :D Thank you always for your support - and enjoy your day!
The essence of Christmas is not about the gifts,toys, the different christmas decorations,christmas songs,the snow 0r the delicious foods etc...But it is about how we remember the birth of our savior Jesus Christ. This is the true meaning of Christmas, as long as we are complete in the family celebrating it and giving thanks to Him for all the blessings that He had given us. Love and joy will cherish upon us.
I hope you've all been having a fun and safe holiday season. As everything wraps up, I wanted to write a quick post about Alpha Coders in 2015. 2014 saw a good amount of growth, and a lot of server moves. I expect the first 6 months or so of 2015 to be mainly optimizations and fixes; basically taking everything in Alpha Coders and just making it a bit better. The first two sites you'll be seeing this on will be Photography Abyss and Art Abyss.
There's a lot of room for growth and improvement, especially with most of the smaller sites. Of course Wallpaper Abyss will be worked on as well :D We're going to continue to focus on growing our community, and expect a lot of contests! Take care everyone!
I hope you're having a good holiday season! Today we are doing a very soft launch of a new feature for creators - the Creators Market! The Creators Market is an oppotunity for people who have submitted their own creations to offer commercial use licenses for those images. We have a secure integration through Stripe, and will pay creators via Paypal. If you have a wallpaper that is part of the creators program, just click the 'Add License' link under the wallpaper to get started!
Just some minor scheduled maintenance. Expect the sites to go down for < 5 minutes.
