The Coronavirus Epidemic and some site talk (03/25/2020)

Recommended Posts

Note: Some of you may see that this was posted on March 24th, but that's only because it's about midnight in the east coast as I'm writing this.

Well, well, well. I never imagined that things would come to this. Not in my lifetime at least.

First it was just hand sanitizer selling out, then we saw toilet paper, food products, rice, pasta, galore. Almost all basic necessities for life being put on reserve by people.

I mean, me personally, I can't say I blame these people too much. You never know if or when things will get bleaker than this, but at the same time, have some consideration for your fellow men and women out there.

I'm personally very afraid of the uncertainty of whether this will get worse, get better, or if it'll get worse before it gets better. I mean there's a lot of panic and fear mongering out there and that doesn't help things. You can't sneeze or cough in a public place without worrying about if all eyes will turn on you. Hell, you can barely go out at all with martial law put out in most places in an effort to contain this vicious virus until a cure can be developed.

Now, I know that all sounds bad, but in the meantime we all have to stay strong. For the sake of our loved ones if for no other reason. Perhaps we can keep ourselves occupied until then. I've been doing that with a balance of work and play. Work that I can do from home and I've been just tearing it up on my Xbox 360 lately!

I'm going out tomorrow to look for some hand sanitizer so wish me luck and cleanliness!

 

Now on to some website matters.

Again, I haven't been the most attentive site owner I can be, but can you blame me? I think only a handful of people even check in if we're lucky. Screw it, I'm just gonna say it. If it wasn't for our server failure in February of last year, we'd probably have a fair amount more of activity right now. I partially blame myself, but otherwise, what are you gonna do?

The key to getting people back here is what dumbfounds me. We'll try some promotion, maybe a giveaway, communication to those people is the main thing we need right now. If you guys, mods or regular users alike have any suggestions as to how to boost up morale and site activity, leave them below me, for sure!

Other than that, I'm not sure what else to say. I am going to look into getting some new themes for the site, at least a few. And of course, I'll post more here, but that will only mean something if people do come back and start to be active. Between Nanda.to and more importantly various Discord servers, we've got some pretty stellar competition on our hands, but I do enjoy a good challenge!

And also, to anyone who's looking at the current Millennium Light theme and thinks it's cancer, don't worry because it's a work in progress. I'm not very good at handling these things on my own.

I'm also looking for new co-admins who can help me with managing the designs and whatnot. If you think you have what it takes, shoot me a personal message!
