TESA Where Are You Headed?
Well I've been away for a bit, a busy life as Father, worker and all around stuff keeps me from places I would rather much be. TESA has been a place I drop in to on occasion to see what's up and to learn from . I have always appreciated the mod tutorials, they have helped me a great deal in my mod endeavors. I returned recently to find that TESA has changed a great deal, features on the front page that were once present are gone and although I can see the efforts at streamlining the site I can also see the empty space that were once filled with what I considered inviting and eye catching features. I miss the music player, that one aspect made the site enjoyable for me.
Let me add I am a webmaster of over 16 years and over the last 10 have developed that talent mostly for myself but I use it to help others. I was the backend server maintenance assistant for MyMiddleEarth for a couple of years and have worked with some incredible webmasters.
What I'm getting at is I love sites like this as I can see what people are thinking and doing with their artistic talents and as a huge fan of TES and a gamer of many years TESA has been a great resource for me. Because of my experience with MME and watching how the site at one point had a clear direction and watching that direction become muddy and then seeing the site fall apart because of the lack of clarity, because of a change in leadership that took it in a direction that inevitably brought it's demise due to the lack of clear direction. I am reluctant to support or step in and help in sites like this anymore.
I have to say though that I am an annual supporter of NEXUS and have been for a couple of years, but because of recent events there with the release of an update that killed my Skyrim game as well as 3 other games that were moddded with it I am disillusioned with devs.
At this point I am willing to turn to TESA and ask what is your plan for direction? TESA where are you headed? TESA what do you wish to accomplish by next year? If the answers to these questions are clear and positive, I will be more than happy to support you, I will take the step from free user to offering my help in what ever small but consistant way possible. As a webmaster I can see the efforts being made to maintain your site, as a gamer I can appreciate the information and sharing I see here, as a mod creator I appreciate the tutorials and information shared by incredibly gifted people. So there you have it, that is my status. I await and will watch and listen. Thanks for what you 've given me and thanks for your efforts.
