After several months of development (June 2015 – January 2016), it’s finally here. I present to you the new Duel 95 Professional website!
The new website is fully compatible with mobiles, tablets, printers (now printable) and of course computer web browsers at multiple resolutions. The website is fully compliant with the W3C standards of HTML5 and CSS3. I’ve even put in a sitemap like in our Office Live website from 2008 to keep the site organised.
All the content is guaranteed to be up-to-date (excluding content from our ‘Classic‘ section) where the site is designed to be dynamically updated. You can watch us live in the Broadcasting section and additionally learn about our content.
I hope you all enjoy the new website. Now that this project is finally over, I can move back into our Broadcasting projects.
I am also happy to announce that this site now uses 256-bit SSL encryption (HTTPS) for a majority of data connections now. SSL encrypts the data sent between the web server and the users, making it very difficult for devices in-between to intercept. The encryption is also valid in our project sites and online store, so you can now shop with confidence knowing your information is secure.
I’d just like to wish you all a Happy New Year! Looking back we had some good moments on YouTube and Twitch with a series of Gmod videos, Glorious GameCube, 2DS video capture, Pokémon and even Minecraft made a comeback with the Prismarine Realms server.
Let’s make this year even better. Hopefully bringing new approaches to video creation which means quality over quantity, it may take time but I will find a way to make it happen!
Just a quick update to let you know I’ve updated the online webstore. There are some new categories to browse through and am no longer advertising items we don’t sell, well almost (we’ll get there eventually). Some new products as well, mostly out of stock for the moment but will arrive if there is any demand.
An online item also went on sale for $4.99, the Prismarine Realms Private Reserve. As part of the 1.1 server update, we’re introducing a private world for a small group of like-minded creative players who can collaborate freely with each other to make great works. The money goes towards funding the server and keeping it online, it also prevents the general public from ruining your talented works. The sale ends on 10/01/2015 as part of our first month 1.8 beta promotion.
So we finally have an updated News and Updates system that doesn’t require manually editing HTML files, although the initial duel95.com had Tumblr. and Twitter feeds, so updating news will be much easier with support for collaboration. This also includes the release of a new weekly technology podcast which will be available shortly. I will note that there have actually been various unannounced updates made on the site since 24/02/13, so the website is still active but will become much more active this year in comparison.
