ACC 2.0... for real
Greetings community members. As some of you may have already guessed, yesterday's April Fools Day shenanigans were not entirely in jest. At this time Lauren (aldericon)
and I would like to formally announce ACC 2.0. Up until now it's been a mythical white whale whispering promises on the horizon. While we can't promise any specific release date, we do feel that enough progress has been made that completion sometime this year is more likely than not. The only major skeletal systems left are the Bell Shop and the moderation system. Other than those, the major work left is filling in the muscle and dressing things up.
Full disclosure, there's still a chance that this crashes and burns. The journey thus far has been filled with ups and downs and now it's pretty much just Lauren
and me trying the best we can (mostly Lauren
). For that reason the Admins have been hesitant to really bring up anything relating to 2.0. However, with things as they are in terms of activity and at least some glimmer of hope at the end of an arduous trek, we felt now was the time despite the uncertainty of actually finishing 2.0. In that vein, we'll be posting updates from time to time going forward. Keep an eye out for the first look at 2.0 within the next couple of weeks.
In fact, you might have already noticed some sneak peeks yesterday. The banner was modified from the summer banner that will be used on 2.0 and the added AFD avatars are potential candidates. Please note that some may not make the cut or end up being modified prior to release. They may also need to be purchased from the Bell Shop. Definitely let us know which ones are your favorites on this Site Support thread
. For those that missed the avatars, they can be found in that thread.
Finally, we're always looking for more helping hands, especially in content creation and development. If you have skills in graphic design, CSS interfaces, or coding in Node.js and would like to contribute, please send in an application
. Please be sure to list your skills and what you think you can help with. We're also looking for people to fill out the missing pieces of guides of the current site for all games. If you're interested, please use the same application link.
Thank you to everyone who has stuck around. Our members make the community and we hope to be able to revamp everything to make ACC more enjoyable. Please keep an eye out for further updates on 2.0. Thanks.
