Alright! It is now the 18th of June. So! We're here to declare a few things!
First of all, of course, is that entries to the Changing Seasons Fics contest are now closed! While we didn't quite get as many entries as we had hoped for, we will not be leaving the winner that does win empty handed, with a consolation prize planned! We have learned from the experience of this theme, and will plan the next theme accordingly.
We will be judging the stories as of now, and will announce the next theme on the first of July. The winner of the Changing Seasons theme will be announced then, and the prize given.
Secondly, as a few of you may have been guessing, we have been doing a fair bit of work behind the scenes with regards to the Oekaki.
As a few of you may already know, the old Oekaki software had to be shut down, after most web browsers stopped supporting Java based web applets. In addition, it was becoming troublesome to actually maintain ourselves.
After we couldn't find any publicly available HTML5-based Oekaki packages online for use with AGNPH, we had decided to embark on our own. Thanks to the amazing work of Cyn, we now have a working Oekaki package! All the previous Oekaki submissions are still available, and we have backed up the animation files for all the older submissions. Importantly, accounts and comments are also still retained!
We are opening access to the Oekaki as of now, as a Public Beta. We encourage users to report any bugs found to us, in this forum topic!
Now, onto the third bit of news. Flygon will be unavailable from the 2nd of July through to the 10th of July, due to attendance of certain events. Be sure to contact Cyn, or other site admins, if you need assistance.
We hope you all enjoy! The Oekaki software needs a thorough runthrough, and we're going to have a fun time reading through the submitted Fics entries!
