As always, thanks to the wonderful Pettankon for the art!
Another rotation around the sun, and another year for Catbox! 2018 was kind of crazy! Being forced from my original VPS provider into owning my own hardware in a datacenter, going to Japan, and Mixtape kicking the bucket (i guess that’s 2019 but close enough), and all the small stuff I’m sure i’m missing in between, It’s been a blast!
However, it is with sadness that I do have some bad news: I’m scrapping the total redesign I had planned. Trust me, it hurts me just as much as it hurts you. I have a couple reasons for this - mainly that I was encountering technological problems that would have required either a total do-over with a different framework, or leaving certain pages without basic functionalities. In addition, I’ve talked with multiple people close to me and they felt that the redesign wasn’t necessarily an improvement. I’ve taken their constructive criticisms to heart, and realized that it would make more sense to make the current iconic design of Catbox better.
Hopefully I’ll be able to work on Catbox a bit more now that I have more free time as well. A lot of improvements lately have been on the back-end/management side.
And as always, I want to thank my Patreon supporters for covering nearly all of the server costs now! I also want to thank everyone who has been with me for this ride. Here’s to 4 years, and hopefully many more!
