Status Update: May 2020

Published 2020-05-18 on Cara's Blog - Permalink

I figured I’d take a leaf out of other people’s books and start doing monthly status updates (if I remember to do them). For the first month, I’ll be talking about Campmaster Constantine, Discord Scout Council, and this site.

Campmaster Constantine

This month has seen a lot of changes, from PostgreSQL to task scheduling. I’m currently in the process of adding server mute functionality based off of the task scheduler I wrote (found here). Also upcoming are reminders and timed bans. If you have any suggestions for what I can do with this, feel free to drop a note in my public inbox (found in the sidebar).

I’m also working on a secret for the Campmaster, that’s coming up, so stay tuned!

Discord Scout Council

I’ve recently joined the Discord Scout Council as the representative for Camp Quarantine, and as the Tech Team lead. I’m currently working on maintaining their bot and creating their website. I’m excited to be working with them, and I’m looking forward to creating their website and bot.

This site recently went through yet another revamp. This time, it’s using a theme written by Tristan Partin. I’m planning on reworking the theme a bit, but this works for now. I also added an about page to the site.

As the Campmaster grows, I’m planning on creating documentation for it here.
