1.0 - "The Migration Update"
Dec 17
CHESZY keeps on growing, especially in 2020, we grew a lot, as of today, 110,608 have been added in 2020 so far. Due to the growth and increasing traffic, our servers didn't fit us anymore, so we had to switch to a new and bigger and shinier server. Moving over 700K files takes time and effort, and everything that can go wrong, did go wrong. Our backup corrupted, so we have to manually upload all the avatars, wich might take a couple of days. As soon as all our avatars are uploaded, we'll resume uploading new content (we have quitte some ready to go). While we where waiting, we decided to redesign CHESZY, improve some current features and prepare a brand new feature. Here's everything that changed, and is new:

New design prefix: 01

New version numbering: year.week.update

Redesigned home, a section with currently popular avatars, new avatars, some other feeds and current series

Smaller thumbnails on all pages, so there's more content to see at once

New default banner for channels

New icons for: Grey's Anatomy, Animaniacs, The Mandalorian and Mickey Mouse

Improved our coding, CHESZY now loads 20% faster

Smaller icons on channels (were 175x175px, are now 100x100px)

Updated all our favicons

Redesigned admin Dashboard

While we're completing the migration, some things might not work, but we're working really hard to make everything work as it's supposed to. We're really sorry for the inconvenience.
