Almost there! (New server)

Type: Blog post, 2 comments

Dollation.com is back and is up and running on its new server! In celebration, we've decided to consider the site in official beta test phase. (Woo hoo!)

Besides being more reliable, this new server allows us to upload huge pictures and to have the site itself scale them down to a reasonable size. This makes adding pictures to albums and the Dollipedia a lot easier and more fun. 

Server!!!

And what is this?!

Well, yes, it is the handsome JAG, but he is holding in his hands the parts for the new Dollation server! Yes, we are finally going to go beyond the constraints of our current VPS (Virtual Private Server) and have our own, dedicated server. Merry Christmas, Ruby!

These guidelines will become part of the Member Agreement, but I thought I'd share them here first since that document is not yet done.

I have a lot of dolls!

Type: Blog post, 3 comments

I am having a wonderful time adding my dolls to Dollation! When I should be working on the "mechanics" of making the website better (like making those pesky 500 Internal Server Errors go away [Edited to add, they should be gone, yay!]), instead I'm uploading new pictures of my favorite dolls and researching the brands and companies behind them to share in the Dollipedia. Dolls are fun! Sharing dolls is even more fun!

The Trouble with Links

Type: Blog post, 4 comments

Hello, most wonderful testers! I'm very happy to see you taking up the challenge and adding content to Dollation. It's exciting to see new things being added and distracting because I want to follow every link and learn about each new doll that is shared. smiley

Of Pictures and Privacy

Pictures on Dollation.com are problematic for a number of reasons. This blog post is an effort to organize my thoughts around the issues so I can make the right design decisions.

Time to get serious moving over content from Just Magic!

My very first website was Just Magic Dolls which I started in 2002. I knew absolutely nothing about websites, so I got myself a program (Microsoft Frontpage, ewww!) and started typing.

A Challenge for Testers!

Type: Blog post, 6 comments

Hi, Testers! I really appreciate you taking the time to help me get Dollation.com in shape so that it can be opened up to more people. I would really like to have it go on-line before the holidays since many people get interested in dolls around then.

We're on-line!

If you're reading this, you're one of the few who have been given special access to Dollation. (Everyone will get a "Site off-line" message when they visit and only specially-invited people may log in.) At this point we are in "pre-alpha test phase" which means things are actively under development, probably unstable, and will be changing right and left!

Help Wanted

Do you know someone who would be a good alpha tester? We are looking for a few more people who love dolls and would enjoy using Dollation and are willing to give us some feedback. Have your friends contact Ruby and mention why they would like to help test Dollation.
