Hey everyone, quick post from myself to ensure things are going well.
We'd like to thank SDG for creating our new logo and personal avatars for our contact page.
You can view the new logo here:
Quikfox has been designing the 10th version of Retrogade in it's 5 year history to reflect this new logo. It won't be moving away too far from the current design that's in place now, rather than building upon what's there.
ShittyKitty's been very busy coding the back end, and has quite a few features inserted already. Three months ago we were in a text based alpha with the very basic of code. He has now implemented a giant list of features and bug fixes that have come up.
The features we're planning for the next month will include the User Profile side of the website. Because artists are very creative, we'll be making sure that the profiles are as customizable as possible.
LethalDosage and myself have been working hard to ensure that you, the user, will get full benefits from using Retrogade. Hosting your art or programs isn't just for the sake of putting them online and walking away, we want to ensure that you're going to have a little bit of fun by helping out other artists with your tutorials or just uploading a cool, free font you saw on the web.
Finding other users with skills you need to finish that project will be another way to stay connected. We aren't just building nostalgia, we're building a community. A community where artists, programmers, photographers, anyone with an art passion to work together on projects, discuss or showcase their works, and be able to enter a friendly atmosphere where others are willing to help out others.
Retrogade is coming along nicely. The project is still on track and with the amazing work that Quikfox and ShittyKitty are doing, it's progressing much faster than any of us could have imagined.
Please come by and check out http://retrogade.org - any ideas you have can shape RG's future. I'm sure the older members would like to see some things come back as well somethings changed.
