Here’s the TL;DR version:
- We need to do some repairs. In particular, our existing Australian server is badly in need of updating. That is happening right now, but it will take until Easter 2018 (roughly) [Stop press – that was optimistic. Try July, if we’re lucky …]
- We want to recruit more helpers. Not hard-core programmers, just people who understand how to use the tools like Facebook, Gmail, Dropbox and Discord that we rely on so much.
- Our existing tools can be improved. We already have systems for the registry, canon lore, the roll of arms, scribes, and authorisations – but most of them don’t talk to each other. We will be doing a round of improvements and extensions.
- We might be able to move away from running our own dedicated systems, and start using open-source systems instead. The benefits would be significant if we could do that – but the costs and efforts might be even more significant. So we’re going to look very carefully before we commit ourselves.
