Odds and Ends

The emotes page has been tidied up to hopefully be easier to use. I replaced the combo box, which tended to get clunky if you had alot of items, with radio buttons and included who gave you each item. Just check the one you want and click emote.

Also, a year-round bingo game is in process and hopefully will be released within the next week or so.
A friendly shout out that only about 1/3 of the yearly costs for Cafe Random are covered currently. If you are able to afford a paid membership or just want to donate, it would be greatly appreciated. If you can’t do either, please spread the word about the site on other sites and platforms to help us get more members.
I found a cheaper hosting plan, that hopefully won’t slow down the site too much, and will be switching over in November to help with costs as well.
We hope to launch our dungeones and dragons adventure soon, so if you’d like to participate, please contact me or post on the forum.
I’ll be putting up another post soon asking for ideas on new games and features to code for the site. So be on the lookout for that.
That’s it for now!
Cheers!

SpringCleaning

You’ll notice some content changes on the site. I’ve consolidated the log-in and main pages to be more guest-friendly. I’ve also unhidden the grande links, though if you click, you still aren’t able to actually access them. This was some spring tidying up, in hopes that guests can view more of what Cafe Random has to offer before forcing them to make an account. It also will hopefully get some Breve members to see the Grande features and encourage them to upgrade, as we’re only 4% covered for costs this year so far. I can’t remember if I posted what I consider costs in a previous post, but I only include actual hosting and domain charges. It doesn’t include any of the time I put into the website or any of the costs incurred during the initial site setup. I’d also like to hire on coders to help with things like improving chat accessibility, but I need to cover the base costs first. Anyway, I hope the site is more enticing now and as always, let me know any bugs you encounter. Merry almost springmas!

Merry December

Merry December everyone! A special advent calendar is up for this month, enjoy! I also trimmed down the forums a bit so they’re hopefully easier to navigate.

Hosting costs come up in December. I plan to modify the donation structure so $5 gets you a month Grande, $10 gets you three months and $30 gets you a year, as we were pretty low on memberships over this opening year. Please, if you enjoy the site, consider helping out, any little bit helps and if you can’t donate, you can also help by just spreading the word about the site and helping grow our member base.
As always please let me kno any bugs you find or ideas on further improvements. Thanks and merry winter!

Sounds are finally here

There are now sounds for all games. You can toggle sounds on/off via your control panel under edit profile. Default is set to off. If you have an idea for a sound that would go perfectly with an existing game please feel free to send the mp3 file via the contact admin email and I’ll happily consider it. Happy gaming!

New Grande Game

Thanks to my Grande members for supporting the site and being

patient with exclusive perks and features as Café Random gets off it’s feet. I
finally got around to coding another Grande only game, which I had a lot of fun
with. Hope you all enjoy!
