For those who don't know who I am, my name is Sonya, I am the creator and owner of this site. To those who remember me back when I was still active, I have been on a hiatus for a very long time without notice. I will explain in the next paragraph and keep the story short:
More than one family members became seriously ill, so I lost the motivation to work on CloudNovel (which is why the downloadable version has not been completed till now). Not only that I had to find a job so I was job hunting as a salesman in the grocery store, a bakery clerk, a bank teller, and months later I finally found a stable job at a wine company (and I haven't been happier) as a bookkeeper. The family members that have been ill have been "cured" after many treatments, but there's a chance their illness could still come back so we are still wary of their health and wellness.
So anyway that's my explanation as to why I was gone. I'm back now because I took a look at CloudNovel's websites stats and I am surprised to see that CloudNovel is more active than it has ever been. I have to give thanks to all the moderators who have been keeping the site alive for so long while I was gone, CloudNovel probably wouldn't be where it is without the mods.
So how active is CloudNovel? Well according to google analytics we have 367,396 pageviews
per month. Back when I was still active, we had about 80,000 pageviews per month. So the traffic on this site grew by 300%
Anyway I'm back now, but now that I have a job, I still don't know when I can finish the point system where you can download visual novels and implement the point system completely.
I will do my best though to complete the downloadable visual novels, maybe by the end of this year, but for now there are no guarantees. It all depends on if I can find enough time from my job, dealing with my family's health problems, and more.
Anyway I hope I can meet all the new users on the site
