February 2020 Greetings: 10th Anniversary Incoming!

Posted by Merit Celaire on Saturday, February 1, 2020 - 11:53 AM

That's right, awesome people, we have now officially started the second month of this year... and in just a few weeks from now, we will be closing in on this music operation's 10th anniversary!

Here's what's been going on from the backend side of things so far: at this time, I have been working like heck to get this site community forum portal ready to go before our 10th anniversary itself hits. I've been waiting for this to happen for almost one to two years, and it's going to be a great day when we can post the announcement on when the "Forum Portal" section of our site goes live again. Stay tuned, all!

Second, the Super Nintendo music style arrangement procedures for this year still continue in earnest and I hope that during the course of this month or next month, I can get new stuff posted for you all to check out. As you can see from this page, as of the date and time of this posting, there is going to be a new "starter batch" of covers targeting a game's musical score that hasn't been featured for these music operations yet; plus, I've been targeting some new covers for already existing featured installments that include (but are not limited to) Super Mario OdysseyMario Golf: World Tour, and Super Mario 3D Land.

For both angles, this is going to be a very interesting and exciting month for us here at these operations, and believe me when I say that you all will not want to miss a thing as new announcements/blog entries get shared on this page. Although my main focus right now is to get the community forums themselves back in action again for our 10th anniversary (and/or to make sure we're back again there before the end of this month), you never know when our first Super Nintendo music style arrangement covers for 2020 are going to hit around here... and it just might start this month as well! Until then, you all know the drill: in the meantime while you all are waiting for the "Forum Portal" itself to go live again, you're still able to reach us via email contact form if you have any further question about this entry itself, apply for access to our Discord server, join our IRC channel on EsperNetsubmit a follower request for our Twiiter profile, as well as follow us on SoundCloud.

Until then, you all have an awesome February and let's hope for the best in this special month for our music operations. I'm out for now.

Quick Follow-Up On Our Hosting Account Sitatuion / "Forum Poral" Setup Continues

Posted by Merit Celaire on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 - 10:27 AM

Many apologies for the "dormancy" on the frontend; I am just snagging the chance this morning to get you faithful followers/listeners up to speed on what has been going on regarding our site hosting account and resolving the "forum database access" situation that I've run into as I've been trying to get the new forum software in place that'll eventually be seen in the "Forum Portal" section of our site in due time.

First, as stated in previous entries - the hosting administration had to do a "reset" on my account in hopes to get the issue resolved on their end. They did do that and I managed to get the files for this site back in action a few days ago. But unfortunately, the problem itself is still there regarding my getting access to the forum database itself to do some slight modifications on that. Still hoping to get to the bottom of this eventually.

That said, I was able to find a workaround in terms of installing the forum software itself; however, I had to check through the forum software code in order to do it on the backend (mainly in regards to the "installation process" itself). That has now been done and I'm now still in the "setup phase" of the forum itself; my hope is that we can get this part of the site back in action at last in time for this music operation's 10th anniversary next month.

Once again, I'm still here; it's just that so much "backend stuff" has been taking up much of my time. Not to mention that I'm still hard at work on new "music arrangement" stuff to start off the 2020 year strong, but that's another post for another time. But still keep it locked on the front page for any new happenings; in the meantime, please don't hesitate to follow us on Twitter, apply for access to our server here on the Discord, or check out our IRC channel on EsperNet. Take care for now, all; I'm out.

HEADS-UP: Site Hosting Account Being Reset Soon (Addressing Backend Issues)

Posted by Merit Celaire on Monday, January 20, 2020 - 08:09 PM

Been busy trying to get some site account stuff sorted out on the backend of this place; a few days ago, I've gotten word from the folks at Vimly Digital via support ticket that despite all options they've tried on their end to address the current situations with my related account for this site (mostly in regards to my "database access" login issues related to the replacement forum software that I've been atempting to set up), they'd have to see about doing an "account reset" because there were certain aspects that still require another part of my account backend in order for me to log on to the database area of it successfully.

This is a heads-up that I'm currently taking care of doing yet another site/materials backup in relation to this account starting tomorrow so that the hosting administration can proceed with doing the account reset itself (which includes the filesystem for this site itself and the database that we implement for the replacement forum system). So if you attempt to check this site's front page and are experiencing issues, this is most likely the case.

Many apologies in advance for any inconveniences this may bring up during the next few days; rest assured, I'll keep you all posted via other available matters including our other "interactivity portals" once the site itself is back online again and hopefully, my "database access" issue has been completely resolved. We appreciate your understanding of this matter.

What's Been Happening on the Backend as of 1/12/2020

Posted by Merit Celaire on Sunday, January 12, 2020 - 05:56 PM

Okay, all; apologies for being very "dormant" on the frontend of these operations, but I can assure you that I am absolutely not "dormant" on the backend. On the contrary: I am currently dealing with two "backend situations" which I'll let you all know where things stand at this time.

First, ever since we officially began the 2020 year itself a few weeks back (and after resting up from that), yours truly has gotten back into the Super Nintendo music style arrangement groove again. Details are still under lock and key, but so far, I currently have laid out "tracker process end" wise the foundation of five upcoming covers targeting a certain Nintendo 3DS game that doesn't have a game page for these operations yet. I am hoping, however, that we can make more progress on this angle and get it up for our 10th anniversary next month. Additionally, I am aware that this page has yet to be updated on what I'm currently working on at this time; hopefully, I can deal with this later before the weekend itself is out.

Second, I've been hard at work on the "setup phases" of getting the "Forum Portal" section of our site back in action for our 10th anniversary itself next month as well. The situation is this: we've decided on the forum software to use, and the database for it has been set up as well. The only roadblock that I'm currently sorting out at this time: attempting to log into the database itself on the backend to make some adjustments to it. I have been experiencing some "access difficulty" situations that won't allow me to get at the forum database itself; I currently have an active support ticket with the folks at Vimly Digital to help me get to the bottom of this matter. But rest assured that I am determined to get this angle itself done for the course of next month; will keep you all posted on any new developments on this as they happen.

Finally on a side note: I've been playing catch up on letting you all know about other matters as well. Although we haven't gotten reports of this kind of case, I'm still making plans on getting a form up on our site to all you folks to report on any "plagiarism attempts" involving any of our operation's music files. As you know, the only places authorized so far for sharing my music arrangement works are this site and our SoundCloud account (where I post my "personal favorites" from time to time over there). I'll get more into this another time, but I've been encountering news as of late outside of here regarding people blatantly stealing other people's fan works and posting it as their own. That is without a doubt a red flag there and unacceptable; while I do hope it doesn't happen for these operations, the reality that is that it still could happen, and we need to take the necessary steps to make sure we can take action on those kind of "plagiarism cases" when the need arises. One "plagiarism case" for us is obviously one too many, and we have to be on guard for anything regarding this kind of matter. But once again, I'll elaborate on that more in another post (and when the form itself goes live). Stay tuned.

Until then, you all have a great rest of your weekend; as always, if you have any further questions for me regarding this post, please don't hesitate to send me a email, contact me on Discord (if you have been approved for accessing the server after filling out this form), or via our IRC channel on EsperNet (when I'm online there, of course). See you all later.
