Bug Fixes 28th November 2018
This is probably the biggest push (after our release) that we have achieved on Story-Bat! I think everybody has earned their presents this year. =]
You can find detailed pictures about this bug report on our Discord Server!
General bugs / Desktop View
- “edited” to “Edited” (only SP) because it looks better,
- changed “Favorited” into “Favourited” because British English rules, and
- changed “steps” into “Steps” so it looks better for a title.
Story-Spotlight & Reminder for the Raffle
Apocalypse Town - Zombies!
With "Failed test subjects" released yesterday, "Apocalpyse Town - Zombies" has created its 11th Story-Block!
You can find out all about our running raffle in this post: https://storybat.com/node/130
Only a little bit more than a week left to participate! :-]
How to create a story on Story-Bat
I did it, mum! Longest tutorial video so far:
I hope this video gives you a good overview on how to create a new story on Story-Bat yourself.
Tutorial about our Story-Modes
The newest tutorial video is up!
In it, I talk about the Story-Modes we currently have. It is a good insight into one of the capabilities of Story-Bat.
You are welcome to share this video to show off our "Choose-Your-Own-Adventure"-Mode. ;-)
Our next video will be about creating a new story on the site. I have heard feedback from some people who were unsure as to how to correctly fill out a new Story-Page. You can look forward to that video next week!
I champion you all to tweet, post or in general talk about https://www.storybat.com/ using the #storybat hashtag on any of your social-media sites.
At the end of November, every Facebook-, Twitter- and Youtube-follower as well as active people in our Discord will enter a raffle to win some steam keys to Metro 2033, Strata, SUPERHOT and lots of other games!
So fly and good luck to you all!
Progress on Ad revenue
I want to thank those that have clicked on the ads on our homepage.
(Hint: You find them on some pages at the bottom of the right sidebar)
I already made 0.50 CHF in the last month and am probably going to receive about CHF 4.- for this month. This sounds like nothing or that I am mocking it but I am dead serious!
When I say every little bit counts then I mean it! Until we find people that are willing to support Story-Bat directly, those ad revenues help finance the server costs.
Even just those 50 cents mean that I have to pay 50 cents less out of my own pocket for the servers.
I wanted to make sure you know that your actions do have an impact!
Thanks again and happy writing~
Facebook Fanpage set up
In another push to get the word of Story-Bat out, we have created a Facebook-Fanpage:
If you are roaming FB or know people there who might be interested, please forward them this page.
Advertisements on Story-Bat
Some of you have already noticed that Google ads are being displayed on some pages:
These ads are always on the same bottom spot in the right sidebar, see also the following picture:
Ads will never show up on other spaces and we will never try to trick you into clicking on one.
The reason I have implemented ads here is that with realising this dream of mine I also generate costs. The site will be free to use for everyone but creating and managing a website doesn't go by ones wallet unnoticed. There are fees for hosting the site and mail-servers. Keeping the website up-to-date and maintaining it also occupies a lot of time. And I plan to do lots of improvements to the site with new functionality. For all of this, funds are needed.
Unfortunately, the "Support-Us"-page hasn’t seen…
