I'm Back (temporarily)

Postby Sonya » Thu Sep 08, 2016 9:20 pm

Hello everybody,

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. :sweat:

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 :D

Welcome back Sony! I was starting to think the worst; we missed you here on cloudnovel! Sorry to hear about your family but as long as they are getting better and that's what counts! Congrates on the new job, its funny that you say that you got a job at a wine company because my sister got a job at one as well as a wine ferment er (Tester?) Don't know the acchual term for it lol. Well its great to have you back regardless :3

Thanks Sammy, it's good to be back (even temporarily :sweat: ).

I'm so glad to hear your sis got a job at a Wine company. I'm starting to fall in love with wine, food, and Cincinnati (there's so many restaurants here in this city, it's crazy, it's almost like a foodie's disney land. They have this thing every year called the "Taste of Cincinnati" and it's like a food festival of all the restaurants and it's amazing. What's also great is that it's a small enough city we will never get terrorist attacks :D )

Anyhoo first thing on the list is to get the downloadable visual novels working (I already know that the save/load function doesn't work yet in the downloadable version, I'm actually working on it, it's doable to make, I'm just being lazy, sorry :uh: )

Second thing on the list is to make the downloadable visual novels accessible because obviously right now everyone can only see a COMING SOON thing.

I apologize for my absence you guys. :uh:

Attention everybody, downloadable visual novels are now available for free. Just go to your visual novel's settings and click download with your points (everyone gets a free 100 points to start off). :mrgreen:
