Well, the plan was for the site renovation to be finished right now. Everything has conspired to slow the process down, including Will and me, so we’re neither surprised nor particularly bothered by the renovation NOT being finished, but we are scrambling to get it done.
The thing is, once we started the renovation, we also started getting ambitious. Oh, let’s really go all in on Hunter Black merch! Oh, let’s present the pages at 2.5x the size of the old ones! Oh, let’s redo our links in the fanciest way possible! Oh, let’s do something with out fan art!
No one wants to do this again any time soon, so we’re trying to get every upgrade that we can think of going. And don’t get me wrong, while the site will definitely be new and improved, it’s not suddenly going to become super advanced. Certainly, some of our delays have been expressly about preserving an easy reading experience, and some of the stuff that has yet to be done is that stuff, the “let’s not forget that this is about reading a comic” stuff.
Hopefully, it won’t be more than another week, but we’ll see. Like I said a few weeks ago, we’re getting an AMAZING deal on our web development, so we’re not complaining about how long things take. It’s not going to be much longer.
