Posted by Kim on November 13, 2019, 10:30amThis is it - the very last of our 100 day timeline for Operation Audacious Phoenix.
How did we do?Given how totally audacious and even possibly ridiculous this timeline was, amazingly well! There are a few things still pending - notifications, live chats, and image uploads the most prominent among them - but day 1 of beta will include nearly every feature the site currently has plus several hundred new ones.
How do I participate in Beta?I am currently setting up a server partition on which all our OAP backers can start to beta test. In the next 24 hours or so, I will be announcing details of how to participate in that beta to OAP backers on this forum: https://www.rprepository.com/g/audaciousphoenix/forum/Backer_Forum
If you are a backer and you can't see that forum, please join the Operation Audacious Phoenix group so I can add you to the list of people with access.
Reminder: A "backer" in this context is someone who financially supported Operation Audacious Phoenix by purchasing something in the bake sale.
WHEN DO WE GET THE THING?My hope is that I will be able to finish the missing features, and polish things up enough through beta testing that we can officially launch 2.0 in December.
How am I (Kim) doing?I am the IRL equivalent of a Skyrim character in the middle of an intense battle with 2 stamina left and an inventory full of venison stew.
Which is to say, I am pounding ridiculous snacks and discovering myself waking up from multiple Unscheduled Naps to try and carry this thing over the finish line strong. Despite the exhaustion, I am so, so, so happy, and so looking forward to beta and eventual launch! This community deserves all the good things!
