RPG Maker Times Companion
(this site) has been beset by problems since it was first conceived, from site deletion at its previous host to a corrupt database to loss of data.
But, after all that’s happened and, indeed, in spite of what’s happened, over the course of developing this blog, it’s still going. The long list of pitfalls along the way have only stiffened my resolve to continue working on it, creating and recreating it, until something prodigious rises from its ashes.
I believe that version 3.1 onwards is that phoenix, rising above the problems along the way and reincarnating into something greater. When the Database for the previous incarnation became so corrupted it was irreparable and unusable (with even the backups not working), the site was brought down completely. Rather than seeing it as a loss, however, I chose to view it as a challenge.
The blog can now be developed properly, taking into account all of the setbacks and mistakes made along the way, and focusing on one portion at a time. When it’s done, all of the RPG Maker materials, projects, resources and scripts/scriptlets I’ve done can finally be consolidated the way I’ve always envisioned it.
And it’ll go from strength to strength from that point on.
