Hey guys, Phinn again. Just want to keep you all up to date with what we’re doing with the site. As you may know, over the last week we did not post the Pro Podcast, or any articles. With Worlds we did not have a chance to record the podcast. As for the articles, I wanted to try out doing some matches instead. However, it seems like you guys don’t care for the matches a whole lot. To make up for the lack of content, we will be uploading three articles this week instead of two. The podcast will also go up on Wednesday as it normally does. Normally an article would go up today (Tuesday), however we are going to be posting pieces later in the week instead.
We are also bringing in some new writers in the coming weeks. Russell Laparre and Jeremy Jallen will have articles up in this next month, and will most likely be regular writers. Kenny Wisdom also may become a weekly writer, putting up should pieces frequently.
We are running low on merchandise at the moment. We still have about six mats left, but we are out of all shirts aside from XL. More shirts will be purchased in about two weeks, with a new design. The main problem people had with the shirt is the fact that there is nothing on the back. We’re going to change that, and put some sort of design on the back.
The Podcast is running strong but seems to not be getting a ton of views; around 1/4th of the views that the articles get. But we aren’t stopping the Podcast. I personally enjoy hosting and recording it. If there is any way we can improve the podcast, please let us know in the comments. We are planning to make it into a simple audio file, like a normal podcast is. This will also give you guys the option to download it and listen on the go. Not sure when this will be available. I’m estimating in two or three weeks, but it could happen sooner.
Videos don’t seem to be getting a ton of views either, however I think I can make them better. I plan on getting some different commentators to talk over the matches, and there will be a better camera angle in the future.
Many people have been telling me how they can’t get to the site. This is because we are now have an SSL certificate, which changes our web address. The new address is https://cutortap.com/. Note the “S”. This is simply a part of being a new secure site. You can always just google search cutortap and find the site that way as well.
Thanks for bearing with us guys! The site is still new, and there are only two people working on it. We appreciate all of the support from you all, and are continuing to do our best to improve the site.
