Things definitely have that professional polish, the forums look really nice. I haven't had a chance to go through the website aside from the day it was first opened, but from what I recall it all looks great.

Awesome job guys, look forward to future content. Has there been any behind the scene design changes to the website that will enable future features such as tutorials, code/design samples, and what not? I get the feeling we're just seeing the tip of the iceberg and I'm curious what the next steps are for the site.

Again, great work. My only constructive criticism would be the 'Last topic' thing that has been mentioned numerous times. I know they're at the bottom, but it feels disjointed and silly that one should have to ignore the entire forum just to see that topic listing. So here's hoping that can/may be fixed.

Dear god, they actually ported ES to a piece of celery!

Behind the scenes we've migrated to Joomla which will allow us to post and manage content much more efficiently than the we could on the old site.

The tip of the iceberg indeed, my friend. Working on new content as we speak. ;)

Speaking of new content, what's happening with the one-video-a-month plan? ;)

Well considering that two of our friends and team members have recently decided to go their own way, the one video a month goal may not hold. James and Jarrod are no longer working on the project, by their own accord. Nevertheless, videos have always and will continue to be recorded and uploaded at Falco's discretion, so if he feels like releasing something every month then so be it. The website, however, is under my control and you will most certainly be seeing updates on that front. If you don't, post here telling me to get my priorities straight and stop doing schoolwork in favor of ES progress. :lol:

That's sad to hear. Well, good look for them (and for you too). Hope to hear from you guys soon.

By the way, do you use your g+ account? The last post was in April!

No, I created it to check it out and haven't used it since. I don't recall ever posting anything.

I'm not sure if we're talking about the Team G+ Page or Dandy's personal account here...

Team. Not that I'm a regular g+ user, it's just that I stumbled upon it a couple of days ago. Then I saw there is a button on the top right corner of the forum site.

Save the praises for the actual content. We hope to earn some of it starting this weekend. It's finally time to make quite a bit of the top secret private development shit public...

Yaaay! I looked forward to that almost even more than the new episodes. I've waited for a long, long time.

Oh God, I'm happy now!
