Stepping down + the Future of TrialBot

Postby TurdPile » Tue Jul 06, 2021 4:07 pm

Greetings everyone! A couple announcements that you may (or may not) care about:

First and foremost, if it wasn't noticed already via the forum, I have officially stepped down from everything management-related within TOS and Trial. It's been a long and fulfilling journey over the past 7 years, and serving the TOS community has been a highlight for many of those years. However, it has come to a point in my life where working with you all has started to impact the direction I want to lead to further progress in my life, and had to make the difficult decision to leave one of my greatest passions and focus more striving towards that goal. I'll still be around, just not in the same capacity as before. My sole focus from hereon out is strictly Trial 2.0 and TrialBot related, until the time I can finally say my work for TOS is completed. Anything else that would normally be sent to me, please send to LevinSnakesRise instead: he's been my right-hand man for the greater part of 6 years (if not 7) and is fully capable of picking up the responsibilities.

Second is in regards to the future of TrialBot (Discord, not forum): TrialBot started off as a tiny application on my PC, but has since grown to be a part of over 150+ Discord servers and counting. For better serviceability for the functionality the bot provides, I offloaded the bot onto a dedicated VM to maintain the uptime and resource required for it run smoothly. Over the past year, the popularity of TrialBot has grown tremendously (much more than I anticipated, considering it started simply as a side project necessitated to offset the utilities of the old BlueBot/ToS Bot). As a result of this growth, the monthly costs to host the bot has continued to increase - doubled alone in the last year. So, planned over the last 6 months and implemented within the last 2/3 weeks, I've decided to open up a Patreon and a community server to relate to all things TrialBot. If you value TrialBot at all, please consider donating a few bucks (or just one, anything helps) to assist with the hosting costs to keep it going strong. Link to the Patreon is here: https://www.patreon.com/TurdPile.

Regarding the community server, all news regarding the bot (downtime, issues, support, update notes, etc) will be posted on this server instead. Feel free to join the server here: https://discord.gg/zf4pDabZQP . (Did I mention there's a unique Turdchievement involved?)

On a related note, one of the biggest singular updates to TrialBot will be coming either tonight or early tomorrow; with it, additional features, changes, and of course, the support for Patreon perks (as explained on the website tiers). Over the next few days, I will be fleshing things out in regards to the server, as I'm sure there are things that I forgot and still need to do. But feel free to provide feedback as well, this is still fairly new territory for me.

Thanks everyone for your love and support over the years, it's been a blast <3

All previous contact should instead be redirected to LevinSnakesRise.

If your inquiry doesn't directly have to do with Trial 2.0 or TrialBot, then please refrain from messaging.

Thank you.

Yeah, thanks for putting so much work into the game for free. And thanks for making trial bot.
I still hope one day the game will have private lobbies. They would really help.
Also, please nerf vampire hunters.

Thank you for all of the hard work you’ve put in over all these years! We appreciate you greatly. TOS would not have been the same without you. :) We wish you luck with everything you do in the future!

Hi. I'm Kokichi Ouma Kuro, and you're watching Disney Channel.

It’s too late. The Evoland 2 propaganda has already started.


He/him pronouns are preferred. Trans rights! Also, some people call me Kokichi, Koki, or Kok. You can use those names, too.
