Random Thoughts
With the site in a state of suspense I've been thinking of a few ideas to simplify the experience and branch out to a new site that will act as an "add-on." The general concept is a service that will allow users to take advantage of the OtakuElite anime and character databases and search features while simplifying the interface. 
Generally you'll search anime and give a "heart" if you love it and then be able to select a comment. Such as, "Love!" "Hate!" "WTF did I just watch?!" 
The truth is I will never be able to devote as much as I used to into the site since I now have a full eventful life with my fiance as our hopes to one day start a family. I've always been giving greater focus to my career outside the site as I try to use all of the knowledge I've obtained in the last 10 years towards a fulfilling career. 
But who knows, maybe OtakuElite will become a major part of my life again. For now I want to try to savage what I can while allowing the site to run in it's current state. If the new site is successful I may think of expanding the existing site if we're able to establish a sufficient user base.
For the old group. Just want you to know you're still in my thoughts and hope everything is going well. ^.^ Will never forget the times we had and the fun streaming and the games we played with NeNe. The last event was amazing. Love making the event graphics and database systems. 
As for myself? Recently got engaged to the love of my life. We've been living together for almost a year and he's seriously the best thing to ever happen to me. Have a cute little cat I adopted and drives my fiance crazy at times when she begs him for attention. lol Was promoted at work a while back. 
If anyone stumbles upon this and has .Net and SQL experience and is interested and taking on the site just message me and we'll talk. I'm not interested in making money on the site. So if I feel you have a good earnest genuine heart and are willing to put the work in I have no problem in letting you have a try at running the site and even one day transferring ownership over.
Anyway for now I'm off. Night!
