Checking in & some guide for the site!
First let me say, how happy I’m to see that so many of you are rejoining the site! Seeing so many ppl are still interested in my work just feels good. So let me welcome everyone again to the new AgeArts!
As you might notice, I continued to build the site in the background in the past week. With so many works in the background, the most noticeable ones for you must be the Gallery, Shop, and Commission page updates. Let’s take a look at each of them one-by-one:
Since there was always some problem with the old Gallery page I just decided to rebuild the whole system altogether. It took some time, of course, deleting downloading, and then uploading all the comics back. It was a mess in the backend trust me! Thankfully this new theme the site uses has a great slider option that I could use to show the newly upload albums in a nice way. I wouldn’t say the best but it gets the job done! I tried what would be the best to show the albums but making it loading all the comics at once is always troubling. So far if you would like to filter from all the comics you need to scroll down to the bottom of the page to load all the albums. Then you can filter or search properly!
Some comics may show up badly or the pages are in the wrong order or even with a different comic! Just comment under the problematic comic and I’ll correct the mistake!
Unfortunately with the reupload, we lost all of the comments and critics of what you wrote in the past 5 years. 🙁 Because of that, I would like to ask each and every one of you! Let’s fire up the site a little bit and make some activity! Please, if you are in the mood write some comments and reviews under your most loves or hated comics! 🙂
The Store AKA Premium Comics:
The Store had the same problem as the Gallery. All the comments and reviews were lost so those had to be re-do again in the future! The structure of the store is the same, you can find all the comics that – in my opinion – stood the test of time. I decided to not upload some old ones I wouldn’t want you to pay for them or I think it doesn’t belong here anymore. Do not worry, new ones are coming this year! 🙂 That’s for sure! Since there aren’t “many” they all show up in one place and I couldn’t put a filter on this page so you have to check each comic individually if you want to see what changes it has! I might update this page as time goes on!
Yes, as you can see, commissions are finally OPEN again! I feel I have some time to create some private art for you guys! So from today, you can reach out and ask for your own commission! I made a page where you can find the most important Infos about the hows and whens. In time I’ll update this page with more necessary information because I’m sure you guys will have questions about stuff that doesn’t come clean from this page.
If you know what you want, you can fill out the form on the Contact page and I’ll email you back as soon as I can! Bear in mind that the contact page might have some issues so I MIGHT not get your emails so I’m not responding to your e-mail in 3 days, send me another mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or reach me on discord! bela04 #8396
