Exvius & Future Revamps

This month's agenda isn't much of an update, largely due to my upcoming vacation I'm looking forward to two weeks from now. The fact I've been working on my two-week itinerary felt as if I'm studying religiously for a college final exam. Although I am excited, I'm still not quite content for the amount of time I've invested my itinerary on. I shall return the second week of May to resume any projects.

Exvius: Check-In
As previously mentioned on my past updates, members were given a long grace period to update their sites via Exvius. Members were given rules to follow:
  1. Link to your site is working properly
  2. Link to Exvius is working properly
  3. Link to Exvius is located easily

With that said, I have purged out members that didn't follow through. Speaking of rules, it was getting increasingly difficult to manually update claimed sprites, especially when members decide to swap out. Therefore, for my future sanity, everyone is now allowed choose the same sprites. I've also processed more applications and denied a few because I was unable to locate the code stated on their application. Or perhaps they missed that the code should be up immediately after applying.

Future Revamp Updates
In the coming months, Cerine and I will continue to provide several sites, including fanlistings, an entirely new layout. Aside from the outdated layouts, our old HTML/CSS coding are atrocious, amongst other things. For future updates, we plan to transition all HTML coding from tables to DIV (pure table-less), and eventually move away from old DOCTYPE HTML 4 to the latest standard web <!DOCTYPE html> for HTML 5. The only reason why we kept the depreciated DOCTYPE was to prevent tables from making ugly gaps. I truly believe it's about time we ditch the "Save for Web" concept knowing it's been legacy for years now. Furthermore, I would very much like to get myself in-sync with the modern coding due to its simplicity and cleanliness of the coding structure, much like the change of PHP coding over the years.

Enamour x Persona 5

As March is coming to an end this year, Cerine and I have finally completed a new design to give Enamour a change as promised. The second version features the series Persona 5: The Royal. This project had been on hold since January, but we could never find any inspiration to complete it let alone that I also got sick around that month. So many times have I looked at this image and said, "I need to work on it." When it was time to really push this design, I find myself sick again which in turn projects got pushed back once more. I have come to notice that every year of my Chinese zodiac, I get sick more often than usual.

Although I have never played Persona 5 for myself, Cerine have. Some say it's overrated, some say it's series that I should look into. For me personally, this art direction has is second to none— the way the bold colors interact with each other and are used always captivates me whenever look at its art, and how while the colors are so bold work together so smoothly is something I very much enjoy. When I think of the words aesthetic or style, this game's art style would be an ideal thing that comes to mind. That said, I have overwhelming love and admiration for this style as it has a very chic but bold design visuals that grabs people’s attention at first sight.

Cloudplane's New Design

Hurray to day offs. They never fail to provide me with much respite from the relentless assault of hectic work shifts, assignments and what-not. Much can be said of what has come to pass in the past week since I last bothered about updating, but such things are usually hard to put into words. I shall try my best.

Firstly (and certainly the most pertinent), a new design just dropped at Cloudplane. After many consideration of attempts of how we wanted the site to look on the previous layout, the "fixes" felt like placing a band aid on a wound that never closes. Thus, the second layout was decided, more or less on a whim, after finding the perfect image to suit the name of the directory's name better. In turn, the new layout is also the second time that I’ve coded pure DIV in ages. I’m a little rusty as it took some time getting used to table-less coding again. Not to mention that I’m sorely outdated on the latest GUI, trends and skills. Otherwise, it’s a simple layout for easy navigation. In addition, the directory was updated to include a revision of rules and about section, and removal of dead links.

So in closing, I conclude by saying that there is a new layout for another network that’s currently in the works. Please stay tuned for more updates round the corner.
