Hello everyone! A lot has been happening lately and I wanted to take a moment to give you all a quick update about some things that have been happening behind the scenes (Spoiler: It’s a lot). This is going to be a long one, so settle in and let’s catch up! ProjectKorra (Core) Our talented Development team is putting some final touches on the upcoming ProjectKorra (Core) v1.8.5 build. We’ve been working around the clock to fix as many bugs as possible for this one so that we can work on getting new features out. You should expect a release in the coming days. There’s not too much to report here, but some news is better than no news. The Official ProjectKorra Server Perhaps the area that has seen the MOST movement in the last week has been development on the ProjectKorra Server. We are finishing up our planning documents as we speak and are moving toward a server open scheduled for August 4th, 2017. More information on this will leak out in due time, so stay tuned over the next couple of weeks to find out more information! Here’s what you need to know now: The server will be PvP and survival based, with arenas available to test Bending. The new map is beautiful and you’re all going to love it. Screenshots coming soon! We’re hiring! ProjectKorra is expanding rather quickly and we are looking for new staff members. As always, we are looking for Developers, but I wanted to announce some new positions available now: Digital Team: We are looking for graphic designers, texture pack creators, copy editors (for the Wiki), skin creators, video producers, social media managers, and more! Moderators: We are hiring both forum and server moderators. Builders: We are looking for highly skilled builders to join the ProjectKorra Build Team as we ramp up production on the official server. Developers: Applications are open for Junior Developers and regular Developers dependent on your skillset. Become a part of a fast growing team — apply today!

What happened with the redesign, downtime, and more info We revamped our entire online presence this past weekend and had some unexpected downtime follow it. This was due to some inefficient scripts running on the new website and forum that was driving up CPU usage and crashing the web server. We’ve moved to a new web host, got some crazy deals, and are up and running again. We are seeing an uptick in traffic, downloads, and the redesign did everything that it was supposed to. That said, we’re currently playing around with different forum themes, as the current lacks some features that we all miss from old themes. Expect to see some changes to it in the next week or two. Operation Documentation We are currently in the process of redoing most of the project’s documentation. This starts, of course, with redesigning the Wiki and then ensuring that all information is both easy to find and up to date. We are far behind on this and hope to catch up soon. Unfortunately, that’s all I can announce for now. We do have some more announcements coming down the line in the very near future. It’s worth getting excited for!
