Howdy Noobs! Phase 1 of long overdue updates is now live, and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with you. We have been chipping away at this overhaul since February of this year on our staging site. Ultimately our goals for the site were very ambitious for our small web team and we have broken the overall project down into phases. Phase 1 is now complete and I wanted to share with you what took place. There will be more updates to come at a later time the details of which we will get into later. Phase 1 should be the most significant and noticeable of the updates, as well as tackle some of the biggest core issues we had with the previous version of the website.

Phase 1 Details

Primary Objectives

  • Modern look and feel
    • Entirely new theme & layout
    • New lightweight animations & interactions
  • Improved Mobile responsiveness
  • Improved Mobile Navigation
  • Improved Loading Times
  • Framework for Events to be displayed in a calendar for future use
    • It will take us some time to get everything fully converted to using the calendar
    • We still need to integrate the calendar into the discord in a meaningful & automated way
    • We still need to get event managers access & populating the calendars with their events
    • The ultimate goal here will be that an event manager just needs to populate the calendar and it will feed everywhere else automatically
