VJ Army is dead or alive

I'm going to keep the emo to a minimum, but:

The promotion I received at work has increased my work output during the day by about three fold. This has unfortunately been taking a toll and it's been difficult to find motivation to want to dig into the code and the database when I get home. Even when I had vacation I was trying to get out of the house and get some down time that didn't feel like work, and unfortunately, my brain treats coding as work. (Because, well, it is.)

It's no excuse, though - I've been disgusted with myself over the age of some of the cases left open in Under Construction. Stuff like 10 month old BPM corrections, or the 18-month-old "why is there no separate entry for sense [a]". So, for those of you sitting there wondering what the fuck - I'm sorry. The site deserves more attention, and I intend to put at least one hour a week into maintenance. I can't promise a lot of new development, but I've also asked Rura to de-mothball the SVN repository so 4.0 work can proceed again, albeit slowly.

Many, many, many thanks to Aaron "rmz" Ramsey for doing a bang-up job of keeping things in line while I've been MIA.

Speaking of which: happy fourth (JESUS CHRIST) birthday to VJ Army. January 26th, 2004 was the first formal day of its existence. Since then:

- 3,422 users have registered.
- 679 song entries are listed in the database against twelve styles.
- Nearly 700,000 scores are registered in the database, for an average of over 200 scores per user.
- Over 10,000 expert scores are registered in the database.

I'd like to (once again) thank Paul Kehrer for his generosity and help, for without him we would've had to shut down ages ago. If anyone needs web hosting, keep it in the family.

I think everyone understands. It's not like VJA is somehow actually suffering; sure there are little discrepancies in various DP notecounts here and there but it's all very minor stuff.

That said, your announcement is great news. :V

edit Oh and congrats on your promotion.

sucks to hear that dude, thank you for keeping up the website though.

hey do you think it would be cool if I could buy some server space from your relative?

you know, as an extended thank you.

*edit*

no I'm not looking for a hook up, not bad prices though.

god damn I might have to jump on that.

It's okay Remy. Things like that happen. I haven't had much time for IIDX or to be around here lately either, so I actually haven't noticed these things you've missed out on doing.

And because I know you can always stand to hear this more, I'm glad for the things you have done for the site, and that things are always in working order around here. Do what you need to do when you need to, the last thing we want is you getting burned out on things and giving up.

It's cool, there's a lot of glitches here and there but for the most part it's functional so I'm good. I just wish that &mode=akp still existed!

Also why does this forum have no fast reply option v.gif

I think it's to stop spam bots from going nuts on the top forum on the webpage.

Anyway, thanks again for everything Remy. I've been following and active in VJ Army since you made it public, and it's still my favorite place to visit for Bemani stuff. Thanks to you and to those who help you keep this place running!

I'd like to thank Remy as well, for making a site that, for many,would essentially keep the fire of a addiction hobby still going. You rock! And like the rest of the posters said, don't worry too much about the unfinished projects of the site. You know your priorities better than anyone else.

Hey, no problem. It's been running fine as is, I still use the site a lot along with everyone else. Congrats on your promotion and best wishes for your career - real life trumps the internet any day.

(If you need any extra coding help, let me know. I used to work with PHP and MySQL a bit and I have a lot of free time at work)

I think all of the responses from us in here give you a sign how much we all appreciate what you've already set up, and that how understanding we are that yes you have your own life and must live it too. Honestly we're probably all grateful that you helped set up and build this current community of Bemani fans...as we know of very few no other place that has such an accepting community....save the inside joke here and there.

Ah, that famous 0 BPM ... rolleyes.gif

Don't worry, I understand that real-life stuff prevails over the Internet stuff (at least this should be for all of us). Nevertheless, thanks for coming back here, and congrats for catching up with all the remaining reported bugs. You deserve a aaa.gif for that laugh.gif

I would not have kept playing IIDX to this day had it not been for vjarmy. Thanks immensely for all you've done and continue to do Remy. I know what it is like to not want to even think about code after a work day.

Happy 4th VJA!
