Ads keep us online. Without them, we wouldn't exist. We don't have
paywalls or sell mods - we never will. But every month we have large bills
and running ads is our only way to cover them. Please consider unblocking us. Thank you from GameBanana <3
A big area that needed improvement was the portfolio, which hadn't changed much since we launched. The portfolio now behaves more like a full-featured portfolio system that you would expect to find on Artstation or Deviantart - you can provide captions, descriptions and also "like" individual portfolio works. You can even toggle which portfolio works appear in the 9 special slots on your profile.
The next step will be to add commenting and folders and possibly re-ordering. We hope you like this update - it's another step toward making Checkpoint a powerful, useful platform for creators.
In other news, we have officially left the Alpha phase and are entering the Beta phase. This is more of a symbolic milestone for us, but we have proven most of the goals we specified in the Alpha, and hope to have a more refined and viable platform by the end of the Beta, which will be a longer period of development.
If you're a skilled modder and haven't signed up get, be sure to check the site out. You don't have to sell commissions, you can still do mod requests for free - that part is completely up to each creator.
