Friends, as most readers know (but some newer readers might not), the 22nd of every month is a ‘vacation’ day as well as a ‘review’ day for me (RWX) at Wuxiaworld, as WW was created on December 22nd. This is the one day each month where no Coiling Dragon chapters will be posted, although this month, you’ll still have plenty to read, thanks to my awesome colleagues! Each and every novel is worth your time, I assure you!
The past month has been a period of explosive growth, as our active projects have doubled! The redoubtable flowerbridgetoo joined with Martial God Asura on May 26th, my dear friend Xiao Lai joined with Skyfire Avenue on June 9th, and the delightful alyschu joined with Against the Gods on June 13th. Throughout this time, despite the huge growth in numbers, the new server has remained steady as a rock (99.5% uptime)! Going forward into the next month, the priorities are now to improve the user experience, whether it be negotiating less problematic ads, ‘subscribe by category’, possible UI redesign for the home-page, and more. For the last in particular, if there’s a UI redesign that would work for you, let me know! I’m currently thinking of making the homepage into ’tiles’ so it’s easier to see updates for ‘each project’, but I am very open to ideas.
Also, tentatively, next month is the ‘moving month’ for RWX! As noted previously, in late July/early August, I will be moving to Vietnam for a long period of time as part of my work, and so starting late July/early August, although you will still get 2 chapters a day, the posting times might be ‘weird’ because of that! Also, for one week’s period (I’ll give advance warning), either at the end of July or the beginning of August, you will just get one chapter a day, because I’ll be too busy moving things around during that week to be on my full schedule. But again, that should just be a one week thing!
