12/4/09: I’m actually moving along ahead of schedule.I’m hoping to actually have all the boards ready for use by next weekend.I work 30 hours this week but hopefully I’ll still get some work done.
12/10/09: The oekakis are completely setup and open for application.There is also now 6 secondary administrator positions open so if you’d like to be a staff member take a look.Since I’m so ahead schedule I’ve changed plans and added to my list.
12/25/09: There are over 20 templates made.They got surprisingly easy and fun the more I made so now the oekaki is really…really customizable.I’ll probably move on to the forum or the paintchat beta next….not sure which.I may even make some more templates in between just to kill the tension.As you’ll notice the templates are completely unique to this site’s oekaki boards and are meant to stay that way so please do not lift them or copy them.If you use the guest board you only get the guest template….sorry guests but we have to save some things for registered artists.
My job is such that i get called in on the spot a lot of times and my schedule is never predictable.While I’m updating I’ll also be posting to Twitter.You can follow me on Twitter if you like.There are links to my Twitter on the main site header and also if you look in the sidebar of the blog here it shows my last three tweets. For now I’m planning to be for the most part done in 2 months.If I have to make changes I will but for now this is the tentative update schedule. The text will look like this if I’ve completed the listed task.
