Happy Birthday, Board!

Post by Sobuno » Tue Mar 24, 2009 10:00 pm

Two years have now passed since we opened this board for the very first time.

A lot has happened since then: About 202500 resources have been added by you, the users, of the SWGCraft Project. That's almost 300 new resources every single day. And the number is steadily rising; of the 202500 resources, 169500 have been added within the last year. We've also had a constant influx of new members: 2800 user registrations and activations within the last year, giving us a total of almost 4100 activated users.

The amount of new users could certainly be felt in late July/early August. After a couple of days of downtime in mid-July, the site crashed because of too many concurrent users in the end of July. This incident, while unfortunate, led us to upgrade the hardware the site is hosted on and thus hopefully eliminating the nasty "Too many connections" error forever.

Third party applications have become rather popular. Applications communicating with the site through SOAP, such as SWGAide, have accounted for more than half the resource-related actions the last few months. It is good to see other developers wanting to support the SWGCraft Project.

This year has mostly brought enhancements to existing functionaliy on the site, as the core features were already in place. The schematics section of the site has undergone the most work: A ton of schematics have been updated to reflect the current game and missing schematics have been added. So far, this work has only been done by a handfull of moderators, but we have just introduced a new group 'Schematic Maintainers' that is allowed to edit and add schematics. This should hopefully speed the work of making the schematics current up.

The site is still being actively developed and we have a few enhancements in the pipeline. But for now, let us raise our glasses and wish the SWGCraft Project a happy birthday!

Just returned from some extended travel to learn of this marvelous birthday event. Outstanding!

Though a new-comer and infrequent visitor, I continue to seek ways to make small contributions.

Thank you so much for creating and maintaining this site.
