Before we get started with our recent updates we’d like to take this time to acknowledge our first anniversary of our Beta. While there’s still a long road to go, we’re very thankful for all the support, comments, and suggestions you’ve provided us over this past year and have remained patient with us as we continue to improve the site. From our very first backers on IndieGogo (a list of whom you may find here) to our new users joining every day, you’ve all been great to us and we couldn’t be more proud or excited for this site and where we will go in the future.
With that being said, let’s dive in to the recent updates:
We’re back with a quick update for you.
Weasyl is currently in the midst of moving our servers over to a new location which will provide us with the ability to optimize the site’s performance for your enjoyment. As that is going on, we’ve had to delay the release of some updates to the code as well as front-end user features. We project that, barring any interruption, we should have things on our end squared away by mid-to-late September.
In the meantime, we’re still working hard with our community to help improve their Weasyl experience. In order to do this, communication is key. So please, if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions regarding Weasyl, be sure to contact us through our Twitter, Tumblr, forums, or our support e-mail at email@example.com. Also if you have questions for our Development Team, please follow them at their new Twitter account @WeasylDev.
We’re also still taking submissions to be featured on Weasyl announcements. If you’d like us feature your work, all you have to do is draw a picture of our mascot, Wesley, and submit it to your Weasyl gallery, tagging “Weasyl” and “Wesley.” With your permission, we’ll use that image in a future update as well as crediting you and linking viewers to your Weasyl page.
Thank you for your continued support of Weasyl. We look forward to hearing from you!
Today we’re excited to announce a brand new feature for Weasyl that will surely turn a few heads at this year’s Anthrocon.
Our devs have created a conbadge creation tool which allows users of Weasyl to make a custom conbadge for themselves, complete with their name and avatar. What makes these badges extra special is that they also come with a QR Code which, when scanned with a mobile device, will allow someone else to pull up your profile on Weasyl immediately. Show off your gallery to friends and fans instantly with the Weasyl Conbadger!
You can make yours today by following this link: http://projects.weasyl.com/conbadger/
We’re also pleased to announce that some of our staff will be attending this year’s Anthrocon. Among them are Aden, Fay V, Term, Morphology, MushiMagicSuits, and AdventureCat. They will all be wearing a Weasyl Conbager badge, so if you see one of them, be sure to say hello! They will also be passing out these exclusive Official Weasyl buttons designed by Fiz, so be sure that you get your hands on one while supplies last!
That’s all for now. To all of our users attending the con, we hope you will have a great time and we will be looking forward to seeing you there!
As you know, Weasyl is always hard at work improving our site. Our techs are working hard to implement new features and polish old ones. We’d like to update you on these changes.
First, a big thanks to everyone who contributed to our IndieGogo campaign. We wouldn’t have gotten off the ground without you. Those users who donated to the Weasyl team during that campaign are now immortalized: https://www.weasyl.com/thanks. Again, thank you for your faith in us as well as your continued support.
Many of you have responded positively to our PSAs regarding how to report issues such as harassment and art theft, and we really appreciate your warm reception and commitment to help the Weasyl community!
Some users have approached us wondering how exactly we handle those reports once we receive them, and we’re here to give you a brief idea of what goes into addressing most of them.
