Yay, Musings is hopping!

I always think you're doing this kind of stuff (working and randomly posting in threads) when you're online. Events take work XD

My weekend plans consist of working on Saturday and enjoying Sunday. I'll probably be finalizing my Halloween party plans and stuff.

And for the last question, how much coding (and the like) did you have to learn when you took over Zantarni?

Since it's almost Halloween, have you ever experienced anything paranormal?

Yes. Several times. Among them... "visiting" or post-physically communicating with several relatives (they usually came to me), exorcising an entity from a friend's house (I'm a Reiki Master, among other things)... and others.

ROFL! Heart Well, he IS a Zombie...

Well, I'm not sure about "hopping" just yet, but I'd like to make it more active again Yes

I usually am - just more often in the Staff Room, usually... especially around event-preparation time! And yes, they do take work!! Right now, I'm working on graphics and trying to organize what activities and/or contests we'll have, and who's going to run them... which reminds me! I had an idea the other night for a "game" for everyone to play on the site... I should follow up on that!!

That sounds like a pretty good weekend, Riley! Yes

Well, since I worked as a programmer way back in the day, and a web developer, and a Usability Specialist, and was a Sr. Web Designer before kids (all this was before I bought Zantarni)... it wasn't so much about learning how to code as brushing off my knowledge... but the programming languages and technology change over time (quickly!), so I'm a bit out of date (still)... and my heart and nature are much more in the fine arts / liberal arts side of things than coding. Zukyun, though, is the real code-head. I honestly don't like coding and I'm not particularly good at coding - so I delegate the more complicated things to him. The biggest, hardest thing about buying Zantarni -which we still struggle with- was/is navigating the code that we inherited (it's a mess). It's really difficult to follow other people's trains of thought and sense of organization (or lack thereof Rolling Eyes )- especially when it comes to coding!

Ok, I have a new question. Is there anything you can't do? XD Heart


Also, did the entity leave fairly easily?

LOL! XD You weren't expecting that were you, Rayven?! Yes, the entity left pretty easily. He just needed a little energy, to be shown the "door/path", and told to go. He wasn't malicious... just a bit lost.

Ummm... is there anything I can't do. Uhhh... like what? Try me?!

No, I wasn't Queen Blaze! XD I don't know why that shocked me so, maybe because you're so busy I didn't think you'd have time for that too. Laughing I'm glad it left easily and wasn't malicious. It could have been a lot worse. Yes

Hmmm. Can you work on cars? Just so you know, if you say yes, I might fall over. That would just be so cool if you could do that too. You'll reach Jill of All Trades status. XD

LOL! I was a club and event DJ for a few years in my younger days, I've jumped out of airplanes, and ... kinda. I haven't bothered trying to work on my car recently, but I've done the basic stuff: changed the oil, changed tires, checked the fluids, etc., and I drove a standard transmission for years (in a major city). Does any of that count? Confused XD

XD Ummm...I guess because DJ's, like queens, are in charge, and make sure that everything is working like it's supposed to. They also try to make sure the people are happy unless what the people want doesn't serve the greater good. I hope that makes sense. Very Happy It takes a brave, confident person to put themselves in the public eye for positions like that. Yes


I have another question. Do you have any fairly big plans for Zan that you care to share? Unless they'e a secret. Then you can just pretend I didn't ask. XD

Ok. Yeah, that logic makes sense and it's not wrong! In the clubs, though, being a DJ was very different than being the club manager (which I also did at one point), but the event DJ gigs were ... yeah, pretty much "all me" to keep things rolling along and make sure the people were happy. Yes

Do I have plans for Zantarni? Well, yeah... I'd like to breathe a little more life in to it -revive it!- which, as you might have noticed, we're kinda starting to do with the minor restructuring of navigation, etc. I'm currently evaluating which of our many features people actually use here (I'll probably post a thread to that effect soon but the more immediate priority for me right now is event preparations - gotta keep the day-to-day stuff going!). Some of our current features may go away because they're defunct, pointless, broken, unfinished, incomplete, or just boring XD Razz We'll see.

Otherwise, I have Zukyun looking in to rebuilding the forum -from scratch- with some new technology he's been playing with. Right now, we don't know how realistic this technology or his ability to create, from zero, the features and functionality we need to start fresh is... but we're looking in to it. When we know more, I'll post an official update and let you guys know what's actually going on... and not just speculation Yes

In the short-term, I have a new game idea for you guys... but again, the event preparations are taking my immediate time (uploading items, testing items, creating all kinds of new graphics - banner, background, event shop banner, contest(s)-, deciding where/how to use which items, what contest(s) if any to run and if so, who's going to host them and what the prizes are, loading up the event shop, setting up trick-or-treat functionality, getting Zukyun to upload any pets we might have, deciding whether or not to release any other items to the Tailor or to the Smuggler, etc., etc.!) and I'm still working out some of the details before I post that idea and let you guys at it. But I'm hoping it'll give you guys something else to do and that you'll have fun playing! Yes

I'm glad I made sense. XD

That all sounds good! No rush. XD I was just being nosy. Embarassed I'm sure you have your hands full right now. I was pleasantly surprised to see the changes you have been making, and the new items. Very Happy

I never played the old games, but I would definitely try out a new one if it's added. Yes

The game I have in mind is a forum-based game, but hopefully a little more fun and "official" than most of the others in the games room (or whatever I renamed it XD ). We'll see.

I always have my hands full, Rayven. I don't mind the questions at all!! Keep 'em coming! Heart

What would you like to see on Zantarni, or have Zantarni "do"??

Hey Queen Blaze!

I don't know if anyone said this but maybe you can send an email to every user, kinda like when you're subscribed to a service reminding you that you're still subscribed.

I have no idea if you can actually do that, but it's just a thought! Even if it goes to junk mail, there must be some users that check their junk mail often. Razz

Hi Rose-lie. It's good to see you stopping by! Thank you for the suggestion. Unfortunately, we've tried sending out emails and newsletters and (1) most of the email addresses folks have used for their accounts here over the years are bogus, forgotten, or otherwise defunct and (2) our (outdated) system doesn't seem to want to send emails to all our players anyway Rolling Eyes *groan* *sigh*. IF Zukyun and I can get things functional and/or ported to a new architecture and technology, we will certainly try to contact everyone with a Zantarni account again, remind them of the site, and let them know about whatever new changes we've made and any future plans we may have at that time. I'd love to see some of our older players come back... and, of course, I'd love to see new players come in!

Ahhh, that makes a lot of sense now! I hope that you guys can figure it out- btw all the little changes are great.

I'm excited for all the upcoming changes too! Thanks for putting in so much effort for us!
