The roadmap is live and the new feature is revealed. I'm working on a forum for all members to chat about everything they like. The deadline is the 31st of July 2017.
Here is some more information about the new forum:
MangaWorkshop.Com has a blog, but it was hidden in the footer of the website. Also, I wanted to add the road map, but I had no idea where to put it.
The solution? Add an extra menu item called "more". Here you will find links to this blog and to the roap map. In the future, new improvements will be found under the more menu item.
Next step: Add information to the road map.
The first members uploaded their art, made their comments and shared through social media. It was only a matter of time, before I would receive the first feedback. Positive of nagetive
The feedback I received was all about improving the website. So how could I say no? I will make a "road map" page this week, showing the improvements I want to build in the following weeks.
After one week a total of 8 old members replied to my mail or PM with a lot of positivity.
A big thanks goes out to (in alphabetic order): Az, Ceta, Def C, Killerkun, Major Banana, Raptoe, TheRagingSpaniard and Tulay.
They will help with filling the website with quality content.
With the new website up, the next step is to get members to use the new website. The old website had over 11.000 members, but only around 600 were actually active. I deciced the make a list of the 30 most active members and send them a mail and a PM telling them about the new website. Fingers crossed!
Unfortunately, there are no active members on MangaWorkshop.Net anymore and the website is official dead.
SheezyArt.com had to close shop too and it sparked in me the need to rebuild MangaWorkshop. I also was able to claim MangaWorkshop.Com and decided this was a good time to start over. Reset MangaWorkshop. Out with the old, in with the new.
And this is the result! Next step: get members...
