Hi guys! As you may have heard, I’ve decided to move Warrior Cats of the Forest to a new host, Wix, due to the ever-growing list of glitches that have made our current website all but unusable. This website will remain accessible through the URL warriorcatsoftheforests.webs.com after the move, but all roleplaying and other activities will take place on the new site. The new website can be found here, but please note that it is still under construction and very messy.
I’m uncertain of how quickly the move will progress and expect that there will be unforeseen challenges and shortcuts along the way, but I hope to have everything up and running by Saturday, June 30th. You are welcome to go ahead and make an account now, but until the website officially opens all roleplaying will remain here. In the meantime, please keep an eye on out for any new blog entries.
Here is a rough outline of how the move should progress. First, I will finish building the functional aspects of the website (forums, page content, settings), then the superficial aspects of the website (primary design, individual page layouts, miscellaneous cleaning and fidgeting). The current design of the website will not be its permanent appearance, rather Sunken and I will create several potential layouts –including one that is as close as possible current site appearance- and hold a vote to determine the site’s ultimate appearance. If you would like to try your hand at creating a potential new layout, please PM me and I can offer some guidelines. Then, I will transfer the domain to the new website and open it for roleplaying by current WCF members. Next, I will repost important blog entries (rule changes, Monthly Meows, anniversaries, guides, etc.), followed by a new advertisement guide, and we can begin recruiting new members. From there, the last two tasks will be reposting art albums and then running through the website to find any errors or areas for improvement.
To make this process as smooth as possible, I’ll need your help, particularly with easy but time-consuming tasks such as advertising, archiving and reposting art, and searching for errors. Thank you so much to the people who have already reached out to me, I will send out instructions for helping archive art as soon as I am home and can access the website email again.
Lastly, I just want to sincerely thank all of you who have stuck it out with WCF these past few months. I’m painfully aware that they’ve been some of the roughest in the site’s history and hope that this change in host will be a new start for us and the community can to thrive for years to come.
