Website Updates and News
 Survived another "Festive" day... Hoorah!

There have been some updates, so I suggest attention to them is a good thing.

The DS9 Alpha Channel set got an update. It has gone from about 50 images to 175. I included one more color, the enlisted, warrant and cadet ranks so the gold naval ranks for 5 dept. color should be complete.

A Special Ops. set was made for "James" and has been posted on the site for all to view / be jealous of / appreciate / etc. It's close to 1100 images in size, so it is a reasonably large download (In Kuro-RPG terms).

Additional fanmail has been included. Otherwise, see ya until the next update!

 Cupid Arrows? Are they made from real Cupids?

Being one of those cutesy-wootsy days I cannot stand, I once again post my favourite flash movie to commemorate the day... The one that even Newgrounds kicked off... mwah ha ha ha.

I have been sick the last few days, so I have not done much in the way of work, bug fixes, etc. We'll see what the future holds.

The link to the flash movie was taken down so that it does not plan for the potential of months on end. For those who missed it, you can check out Shadow Warrior Luke's section under the Guest Flash. (Look to the right side of the screen for the button)

 Need... Anime... Substance... Survival... X_x

One minor addition to the site: There was a series of unofficial requests made about the 2800-series set, so it was expanded upon to include a silver variation of the rank pips. This could be doubled for either the Intelligence Ops. or the Provisional ranks I heard about. To those parties interested, you could try them out and see if you like them.
 Always stuff to do in these virtual woods... minus the trees... or paper mills... or bugs-- No wait... There are ALWAYS bugs... >_< Anyone got bug spray?

All the old Forum ranks have been posted in the Misc. section. There are 8 sets in total.

Finally got around to adding the Fanmail section on the website.

My last rank image count (Not including Guest Ranks) stands at 27,674

 Happy Belated Birthday to myself. So, I am sitting here drinking this icky yucky clear-green stuff and I am thinking to myself "Just who in their right mind would actually buy this? It tastes awful!" Luckily, there is lots of lemonade to help kill the taste!

Battlestar Galactica ranks got an overhaul. I posted a Revised set which makes good use of alpha channels. Like the old set, they are available with collars, and as pips-only.

I finished revising Shadow Warrior Luke's guest section again. Now it includes an old comic project he started on a while ago.

Additional referrences to the now non-existent forums has been removed from more pages.

 It's supposed to be bedtime, not site time.

The forums have been removed from Kuro-RPG leaving just the website available. I left my contact information options available should someone need to try to contact me. Thanks to Shawn for putting so much recent effort into trying to stabilize the forum, but unfortunately it's impossible to revive a dead community. If the forums come back, it won't be for a very long time, to say the least.
 Okay, so I am a Jerk and have sunk the site to a new low... And I care why?
Posted by Kuro-chan - January 15th, 2008
I have changed the content of the information page. I have mentioned before on the page that I am not taking requests, but I am going to make this even more clear on the information page as I have removed any comments made in the "Link to Me" information as well.

I have started to add Shadow Warrior Luke's work onto the site. I put on his Valentine's Special on some time ago, but I added in some of his other work to the site as well.

 Umm... Where exactly have I been?

Sometimes I am not even sure myself, but I tried to get at least one update here this year.

In short though, it's been a busy few months for me, and my relative "want" to work on this site has been very low with about three or four times I have considered just closing the forum or both the forum and site, especially with some of the nasty emails I have been getting as to why the special test with the DS9 set I did some time ago was not finished. To sum it up, it's tough work and I have to customize every single rank with that to try and make it work... it's rather discouraging, especially when people bug and nag and threatened and flame and other stuff. (I'm talking about 50 emails, if you can believe it, and only very few of them were polite). This is not some high-paying job here, folks! IF I choose to work on anything, it is done on MY free time. I pay for the site out of either MY pocket of with the few donations that generously come in.

To complicate matters, work has been an absolute hell the last three months, with my boss threatening me, screaming at me, yelling at me, playing the complete "Ignore Me" routine, threatening me with suspension and a ton of other crap from both boss and other people I am stuck working around... To think of the level of incompetence, it's practically unbelieveable. I am not sure if she will read this, but a special thank you to my co-worker Theresa. You really have no idea how big a help you have been. You have helped keep me relatively sane and grateful that at least someone there can give a damn about me, or else I probably would have quit, tried something stupid and either been in the hospital or dead. Again, thank you.

I did post a new rankset on the site. It's a small set of Dominion ranks for Jem'Hadar units. It can found in the Trek Rank section.

Anything else, well I may or may not be around. I should be getting around to emails eventually. Ja na

 Alright, something different!

I have completed a test for a run of DS9 ranks using alpha channels. Essentially, this set will be able to work with any background color, wether it is black, grey, blue, white or maybe even plaid... Feedback on plaid might be a good idea. The test is available on the ranks page. (Situated with the other DS9 sets)
 I REEEEALLY need to update the front page once in a while...
Posted by Kuro-chan - September 19th, 2007
Okay, the site is revised, and it looks very very purple. In addition, there were a few minor changes to the page layouts, mostly with the update archives and the rank pages. A couple tiny ranksets were added on, and lots and lots of side buttons were added on.

Also, please don't forget to update your links to the site. I still see some sites still using the old link with the (.com) ending, instead of the (.net) ending... It leads to a dead link, even though it's under my name, I can't get it and I won't be able to touch it until it expires next April... grr...
