Persona 3 Section Additions

星期二, 七月 31st, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

I updated the Persona 3 portion of the site today. The Overview section now has three additional subsections which cover the battle system, school life components and Velvet Room concepts. These are all based upon the English version of the game and provide a general review of how each of these aspects of the game work. I figured separating the section would make it far easier to digest and expand in the future.

Expect more updates during the remainder of the week.

Update: The link issue for the Battle System / Dungeons section has been fixed.

Site Updates

星期六, 七月 7th, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

Just to let you know: I’m updating the sections of this site that still do not work properly. There’s been some dead links and empty sections for a while. I’ve not been happy about it, but being busy hurts. These will be taken care of this weekend, mostly today. Please bear with us during this process, as it’s possible things may not work as they should.

Thanks for your understanding.

Site Updates: Downtime Ending

星期天, 七月 1st, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

I wanted to address some of the “downtime” this site has had recently. Obviously it’s been accessible, but it’s not been updated as often as I would have liked.

This is being rectified by a couple of things:

  1. Restructuring of the staff. My current main assistant, Traci, will see her role in the site increase. In addition, there are finally some others interested in helping with updates to the site. I expect that this will play the biggest part in keeping the site well maintained as, frankly, it’s quite hard to do by yourself.
  2. Other web site commitments I’ve been involved with are essentially over. Digital Devil Database, currently, is the only “hobby” project I am involved with and therefore will receive a lot more of my attention.
  3. My actual job is relaxing some and will seemingly remain as such for most of the year. Good news.

Essentially this site will again become the priority it was for me in earlier this year when the switch to the new version was first becoming apparent. The last of the game sections that have not been moved over fully will be finished thanks to the newfound help, older game sections will begin to be expanded and new game sections will be made. This also means things people have contacted me about will finally be addressed (such as potential spoiler information in the Nocturne section, to name one). In addition, the Demonary (which has been in full working condition for a while now) will definitely be opened very soon due to a nice editions to my personal library that will speed up the process of adding information to it significantly.

I am very proud of this site and have every intention of keeping it running. My very sincere hope is that this is the last entry of its type you will read here for a very significant amount of time. I cannot foresee anything affecting this, particularly due to my computer (the main source of recent issues) has been completely rebuilt and is running wonderfully.

I thank you for your patience thus far and, as always, for continuing to visit.

Site Update: Motherboard Woes

星期一, 五月 21st, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

Some bad news to report. Major updates of this site are going to be put off a bit longer than anticipated due to some unavoidable computer issues. Every thing should be back to normal within a week. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Site Update: Hosting and 404 Errors

星期四, 五月 17th, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

Just a quick update to address a few lingering issues.

  1. Some of you may have noticed that the site has been down quite often over the past few weeks. I brought this up to my host and have been moved to a different server. Since then, I’ve not personally witnessed any issues. Let’s hope it stays that way.
  2. The site still has quite a few missing sections, which in turn bring you to a 404 Error page. I’ve been working on gettin this under control and am on track to have at least a few of these finished by this weekend. I’m not very happy about this whole issue, but it’s being dealt with as much as possible.

Thanks for your patience with these matters. The worst of it is over, thankfully.

Site Update: Lightbox Plus Nixed for Slimbox

星期一, 五月 7th, 2007 by Tony at www.digitaldevildb.com

I received an e-mail today from Alex informing me that Lightbox 2.0 might be better to use than Lightbox Plus for the site. I think this was somewhere in the back of my mind; I was uncomfortable with Lightbox Plus (let’s face it, image resizing by a browser isn’t exactly going to result in quality output). and Alex’s e-mail kind of just snapped something in my mind that made me realize the best course of action was to drop it entirely.

As I went to find Lightbox 2.x (which, incidentally, was actually installed here briefly before making way for Lightbox Plus), I stumbled upon a different version known as Slimbox. It did the same thing, but its file size was substantially lower. This isn’t important so much for my bandwidth as much as it’s important for the stability, processing consumption and speed of the site for the users. I figured it was worthwhile to use it instead. I feel that it runs noticeably more quickly.

So, in a round-about way, thanks to Alex for finalizing my opinion :). You can still check out our About Lightbox/Slimbox page for more information. It’s been updated to reflect the change and contains some information that you might find useful.

In addition, if anyone has any suggestions for things they’d like to see on the site, feel free to contact us. Personally, I’m open to anything that will improve Digital Devil Database in any way.

Thanks!

Fredric Paul’s article touched off a discussion with some colleagues of mine, who agreed that Google abuses has become careless thanks to its “monopoly” with AdSense by (among other things) callously dropping AdSense participants for alleged click fraud without a reasonable appeals policy. A request for an explanation fell on deaf ears, and my colleague was left with the impression that Google “would have been more likely to work with me,” if it weren’t in such a strong position.
