Many updates will be coming in September.
As some may already know, every summer I take something of a forced vacation. The heat quite literally disables my ability to program.
But with the cool weather of Fall and Winter soon arriving, I'm gonna work my fingers to the bone coding every last idea I have for the site!
Guilds and Cards will be two areas of focus.
I want to allow Guilds to advertise on the site. Guild owners will be able to create ads, and moderators will choose which ones run.
Sizes allowed include :
As for cards, the idea is to make a card game. Seeing as there are limitless ways to make card games, you can expect many card games to spring up!
What I feel the most motivated to do is, make EVERY character on ACDB a NPC you can challenge to a card game. Win enough games, you unlock more characters you can challenge.
The difficulty will be set extremely high, so you have a 90% chance of losing.
I'll probably make yet another currency ... and have pretty strict caps and limitations on it.
Also, Cirno will be making some waves on the site with her projects this year! It's gonna be exciting !
New Search for Mobile
Cirno had this idea. I implemented it similar to Windows 8 tiles. Click your way through to complete a search. The only options are :
- Cat Ears
- Hair Length
- Hair Color
After, you can scroll down and expand your search to include :
- Two Hair Colors
- Two Hair Lengths
- Two Eye Colors
- Cat Ears
- Made Several Changes
- Mostly cleaning it up, and finishing off the HTMLEvent Log
Started Grouping EventsGuild Coins
Every member gets 100 guild coins which they can use to invest in Guilds that can then use those coins to buy characters.
Anyone can create a Guild. But the more members, the more potential investors!
So far a little over 300 characters out of 74,000+ have been bought.
Here's some snapshots of the Guild Coin tool that await you !

Nothing major yet.
I'll be away from ACDB's head office from Wednesday May 20th to Wednesday May 27th, as we are going to Anime North !
