Kaya.gs private Supporter blog is launched!

After debating for weeks on the best way to communicate with founders, we decided to make a private blog.

We considered making a forum, or at least a proper section in L19, but we thought that many founders might feel uneasy with a forum. However, if we want to keep a different private channel of communication in the future, a forum will most likely be the most suitable solution.

People given access to this blog are supporters and can be found on the board of fame, or close helpers to the project.

We will pimp up the blog and use it to deliver news that are of special interest to the closest helpers of the project. Eventually, this blog will go public, probably when the server makes an official launch.

So we will be updating the blog regularly to keep everyone posted on our advancements, our obstacles and how we go around them, even pictures and more.

This week we are working very hard, and yesterday, after several hours of polishing, we were able to play a game on Kaya.gs and disconnecting and reconnecting. The current state of the server is interesting :)

It has almost no styling, so all the beauty you can see from the prototype is non-existant. However it already has some exciting functionalities: you can, in the same window you can find/open games, and chat, see a list of videos (currently 2 videos from GoCommentary) without leaving the page. Also the chat has some basic IRC commands. The chat gets bold if your nickname is mentioned in a conversation.

We dont show pictures (only the Kisei has seen the latest) because even though it works, its just not put pretty yet. After that, we might start releasing some images as we work towards the first demo/beta version.
