Website Relaunch, Upgrades, and Content Delays

t ono construction

Over the past few months, some of our readers may have noticed delays and the decrease in the number of articles and updates.

The-O Network’s website has been around for almost 8 years now and the accumulated clutter from the very first version of the website is causing a myriad of issues including making article creation difficult. As an organization, we have expanded beyond the bounds of what our current web structure will allow us to work with. We have made various upgrades and updates to it but it is now time to retire it. I am happy to announce we have been working on a new website over the past few weeks and we plan to hopefully launch it soon!

This puts us in an odd situation where we have a large number of content left over from the recent conventions while the bulk of the staff is frantically working to prepare for migration. The website’s content focus has changed over the years and we approached organizing our contents in different ways. With the new website, we are creating a uniform method of organizing our content along with revamping the backend and fronted administration. This means we would be able to support reader submissions. We are also expanding our content the depth of our content coverage with various staff members being assigned as content leads. In the end, this means more frequent and relevant updates and more interactions from our readers.

I want to personally thank all our readers for following us all these years and your patience with us. I know a lot of people were very excited with our guests we brought to Anime Expo 2015 and I can tell you we have a lot more surprises for everyone. Stay tuned!


The-O Network Turns 6!


As unusual as it may appear, April 1 is The-O Network's birthday! 

We started as a small blog by a group of friends and it wasn't until 2007 that we officially registered the domain t-ono.net. The project was only intended to last for 2 years, but we were overwhelmed by the positive reponses we received from readers and industry members alike.

We've buckled down this year, and we finally have some of the means and resources to start implementing all the awesome ideas we've come up with over the years and we're very excited to share them with you.

On behalf of everyone here at The-O Network, thank you to everyone for your patience and continued support! 


The-O Network Migrations

I'm sure some of you have noticed we've gotten a new look! We've scaled back on some of the bulk from our previous version and we've also moved on to a new platform. It has been a huge undertaking in moving everything!

As a note, several services and links may be unavailable during the migration process and we will be hammering out bugs as quickly as we can.

It will probably take a couple weeks for us to finish applying the final tweeks and bug fixes, but don't worry, we will continue to provide updates and new exclusive content during this period!

We apologize for the inconvience, but it will be well worth it!


Website Bug Updates (Fixed)

Noted earlier this week in the blogs, we are currently experiencing some severe network degradations due to conflicts appearing after a substantial upgrade. We have identified and isolated some of the problems and will be patching them over the weekend. Due to computer problems with one of our administrators, it will take longer than expected to complete the fixes.

Affected sections of the site include but not limited to: RSS feed down, Forum - Access error, Community - Profile information missing, profile type error, Gallery - image sizing, Videos - missing videos, Search - URLs formatted incorrectly.

Please let us know in the comments if you find any other bugs. We apologize for the inconvenience.

UPDATE: Majority of the problems that have been reported are fixed. In addition, videos are now properly scaled to the correct dimensions.


The-O Network YouTube Channel

Check out the new The-O Network YouTube channel! So far, we have gameplay clips from Capcom's games at Comic Con 2010, like Okamiden, and a special message to her fans from May'n! We'll continually update the channel with any content, such as videos from conventions or gameplay videos. Stay tuned for more and subscribe!

RSS Feeds Online Again

We recently discovered that our RSS Feeds has been down for the last couple of weeks. Users were not able to view any past or latest posts. The problem was due to a bug during a routine maintenance of the site. The problem has been identified and corrected, we apologize for the inconvenience.

You can also subscribe to our new twitter or facebook page to keep up to date on the latest news and developments.
