After taking a look at the image server, we're considering taking a new approach to ClanHeart.
As we're in the design stages right now I can't reveal too much information, but the general goal is to ensure there's a sufficient amount of on-site content to keep players entertained.
As a consequence of these changes, you may notice certain areas of the website become inaccessible while we work on various aspects of the game. It's also possible that you may lose your characters as we set up a new character creation process.
I'll post more information soon!

Image Server Rework
Hi again everyone!
Just a quick update today - we're looking at reworking the image server entirely. This should take 4 - 6 weeks, but should ultimately provide a more stable long-term solution. We may be able to establish a demo version of this new system earlier than that, but delays are possible. The new tech will also have some new markings added to it as well.
The time-based events (excluding guild rewards) have all been enabled. Unfortunately, some players (like myself!) may be stuck updating their clans - we're investigating a way to terminate this process early to we can continue testing.
Following the image server issues, we'll be looking at general game-play balance as well as a potential rework on the combat system.
Thanks everyone for checking in!

As some of you may have noticed, some previously broken features are now functional. We're working on time-based events - most of which are now active, but we need to do some research/information gathering on certain aspects before we can progress further - I'll have a forum post set up shortly in ClanHeart Discussion if you'd like to check it out and contribute if you're able!
The Clan Update process is tied into these time-based events, however, there's an image server issue that needs to be resolved before updating your clan is possible.
More details in the thread!

It's go time!
The image server is up and functional. We're still working through some issues with it, and it's still a temporary solution, however, this means we're able to begin testing.
I've created a couple discussion threads regarding some on-site features and the alpha/beta plans in the ClanHeart discussion forums - we'll make sure to be transparent with what we're doing and detail our plans ahead of time so you can comment on and influence them as development continues.
Please note that the reports section of the site isn't working currently - please contact a staff member directly with any issues you might run into during testing!
We'll have further updates for you soon!

Apologies for delays!
We're still alive!
The image server has been updated, however, the set-up process is a bit more complicated. The original coder has been contacted for assistance with the process, though relaying messages with them at this stage can take time.
This is largely due to the programming language used for ClanHeart.
We may need to look at alternatives, and can't provide an ETA at this stage.
Thanks to everyone for their patience! We'll have news regarding the alpha once the image server problems have been resolved.

Just posting quickly to let you know where we're at. We had some issues with the old image server, and while looking at alternatives an opportunity came up which we intend to utilize.
We plan to move ClanHeart's image server to an existing image server once it becomes vacant. The logistics of that transfer are still being sorted out on their end, so we simply need to wait it out at this stage.
While there's no specific ETA on when this process will occur, it should be fairly soon.

Image Server Delays
Hi again everyone!
Just quickly stopping by to let you know that we're experiencing some delays with the image server. We're looking at an alternative method of getting it online, but we don't have an expected time as of yet.
We have managed to gain access to social media accounts for Clanheart, and expect to have some previews of the new markings posted in a little over a week.
Apologies for the delays, and thanks for your patience!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me directly.

As some of you may have noticed, the forums and shoutbox have been cleared - this was intentional, and we’re looking to clean things up before starting fresh with the project.
Unfortunately, while we have experience in the industry we’re all new to Clanheart, so it may take us a bit of time to get back on track!
Our priority right now is restoring the Image Server so we can continue testing. We’ll make sure to be completely transparent with updates regarding Clanheart. If you have questions, please ask them in the Questions and Answers forum.
The current target date for the image server is early January.
The current team consists of:
Ris - Public Relations and Site Administration.
Syzygy - Head of Community, Support and Site Administration.
Alore - Developer and Marking Artist.
We’ll have some previews of the new markings for you soon as well!
