Hello everyone. I wanted to post some news about the status of the forums. The forums are now ready for use as well as the site functions. Some spots are still being worked on but everything else should be working. Its rather simple as to how to get started. All you have to do is create an account and you are done. This account is for both the website and the forums. Quite simple. There will be more updates coming shortly with the forums and the few things left on the site that needs fixing. That is all of the news for today. Have a good day!Write comment (1 Comment)
Happy New Year everyone!
I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year and to explain some goals that we have for Life as a Gamer this year.
Our goals this year are quite simple really. I will be splitting this up into two sections. The Website section and the Community section. There may be a few goals that are for both but they are important. So, onto our goals for 2014.
Our goals for the Website portion is as follows:
- I first want us to have more consistent articles for each month. What this means is more content for everyone to read/watch for there enjoyment and for research purposes for games.
- Some of the other features we have on the website are for both sections, including the community section. These features are the stream page and forums. What I want to accomplish is to have more people active on the forums, this doesn't mean like 100 people i merely just want more activity in general. I also want more streaming to happen for the website, this will be covered more in the community goals section.
There really isn't a whole lot for the website goals mainly because all of it is part of the community section as well. It seems small, but its rather simple for us.
Our goals for the Community portion is as follows:
- For the community that we have, I want to be able to have more weekly events. This will happen more so, because my work schedule is now in its part time scheduling that was mentioned a long time ago. This means that I will be around more often to make sure these events are planned and active. It will be slow for awhile but that is okay. I want our community to grow and have more people playing similar games with us each week.
- For all of these events, I want to also stream them as much as possible. This will be streamed to twitch and onto our website. This is to help show how much fun we have and what we all do on a weekly basis for events.
- The forums is a place where we can gather around and post about anything really. Post about your favorite screenshots, or talk about future games. My hope is to bring people to the website so we can talk about other topics that we don't talk about on a daily basis. Or show ideas about what we would love to see in future games and speculate how those ideas could work. Its over all just a place to have some fun and talk with others about any topic.
Our goals are pretty simple this year and are quite doable. I hope everyone takes some time out to create an account and enjoy all of the features we have so far. There will be some updating around the website to make it more streamlined and more feature packed. I also hope you all like the layout and features we have to offer. If there is anything you would like to suggest for the website or anything in general, you can do that over at the forums under the suggestion section.
Again, we want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and hope the best for everyone. Enjoy today!Write comment (1 Comment)
I wanted to post about the current state of the updates on our website.
- The Forums page has been updated to what will be the page we use to access the forums.
- The Stream page has been added and updated to show two tabs of streams that we will regularly stream on.
- The Old forums are in maintenance mode so that we can move everyone to the new system.
- The About Us page is currently unavailable while I update this to look much better in the format.
The New forums are open! What does this mean?
This means that anyone, who hasn't already, needs to create a login for the site itself. This will allow you access to the forums. This means that we now have a system for a single login for the entire site. Neat!
This also means that all of the old content is currently not on the forums. That's okay. We get to start over and create better content.
So that about raps this up. The new site is looking much better. If you do have any suggestions, you can post those in the forums about the website. I will continue to update everything to best of my knowledge and will make this site look great!Write comment (0 Comments)
