Status Update - 24 May 2015


#1

It's been a very busy week for the Sponge Team, so this announcement will be very brief so that we can get back to work!

Greetings from the SpongeDocs News Desk.

We have new staff members!
Ardent contributors @Saladoc and @boformer have been promoted, recognising their outstanding contributions and collaborations. This includes membership of the Docs group on GitHub, and access to the amazing PR preview system created by @gratimax .

Docs Development
There are also many new API pages, and they continue to expand and update. Commands, Text, Blocks, Dependency Injection are well rounded, and there is more on the way. Work continues around the clock and around the globe to refine the SpongeDocs. Bring us more of whatever you have, issues, contributions or proof-reading penguins. Help is always appreciated.

Minecraft Forge Docs
Forge have recently started their own Read-the-Docs project.
In the spirit of collegiality, we invite our contributors who feel both informed and inclined to help them with their documentation on GitHub, or just read and learn.

Thank you for reading SpongeDocs, Play Safe Out There.

Sponsorships/Donations

Since we invited organisations to submit sponsorship offers, we’ve received an excellent response!
We are still in the process of reviewing all of our offers and assessing our overall plans, we will respond to everyone once we have decided upon our best course of action.

As always, you can donate to us via our Patreon, everything you can give helps us a great deal;
