The last 4 months have been very busy and productive, for us here at Sapphire, and we couldn’t have done it without your support. Your donations make everything we do here at Sapphire possible and we would just like to thank everyone that helps contribute. Whether it’s funding us, trying out our software and services, watching a vodcast, providing feedback, or helping get people to use our products and services.
Around March 1st, we recently surpassed 6,000 Sapphire accounts, with our average daily sign up rate doubling last year’s average. We even saw that since March 1st, we have had 200 accounts that did not have GitGud.io accounts, which shows that many are interested in Tavrn and/or GitGud.TV and that user interest is increasing as we are developing these.
What’s up everyone, it’s been a very busy month for us. We’re working hard and fast now on our projects, especially Tavrn.gg. We’ve made a lot of progress in just the past month, even if we’ve been a little quiet on the blog. That mostly has to do with us talking a lot more on Sapphire Podcasts.
What I’ll be discussing in this blog post:
- Tavrn and it’s development push
- The Sapphire Podcast
- Mixtape servers and resources
- Upcoming revamps
- Sapphire Developer Docs
It’s been a while. So much happened in April, I broke the post into 3 different posts and then just was too overwhelmed to finish them. The summer has brought various fixes to our Accounts SSO (Single Sign On) system. Also a lot of GitGud support issues.
Stuff being discussed in this blog post in order:
- Twitter accounts in jail
- Cloudflare removing us
- Server resource needs
- GitGud sign on issues
- Tavrn.gg testing
- Mixtape’s upcoming update
The end of March is here (and past) already and we’re posting and update post to catch you all up with what’s new and what’s about to happen.
We’re approaching the end of February, and we’ve been fire fighting all throughout this month. We want to give you all an update on what’s been happening.
We’re approaching the end of January, and we’re starting to have fires pop up. I want to detail some of the issues and obstacles we are now currently facing.
It’s been awhile since we communicated, sorry about that! In between the last information post and now, we had a position seeking post that had some insights. It’s December 1st, and I want to update you all on what has happened, what is happening, and some stuff on what will happen.
Status of this position: Closed
We’re looking for development partner to help take our top 30k website (via Alexa) with 45.1 million unique visitors per month to the next level.
Rule of Acquisition #125: You can’t make a deal if you’re dead.
To be a donations based organization. You need to be able to accept donations. So we had to put together a campaign to raise funding.
One of the things that got me interested in Sapphire was Michael’s openness about talking about his infrastructure and how much he was spending to host his services.
