The usual "lose weight, work harder", but one big one is that I really want to achieve is to actively start writing about games. I'm coming to the end of my degree and I need to find something to focus my creative energy on. Videogaming is probably my biggest hobby and I'd have a lot to say on it. Maybe I'll blow some dust off the old blog and start actively updating it again with a gaming-centric focus.

I've been thinking about this for a while, but would anyone else e interested in putting together, separate from the forum, a GNAMER website? We could just put things like reviews and opinion pieces and maybe the music weeks on there. It might inky get read by the same people who come onto here, but it would look nice and act like a little portfolio for all of us. Plus, it would mean I can keep dinosaurpoems to just poetry.

I think that'd be a great idea. I know nothing about constructing a website though - my blog is hosted through blogspot.

I'd probably just use something similar to the Squarespace thang I gots right now, but if anyone more intelligent wants to take a punt that'd be cool.

I like the idea, but as you can tell by this place: my website-designing skills are behind that of a monkey with a set of GameCube bongos.

(Likewise: if anyone was capable of tarting this place up a bit, I don't think anyone would object to the offer)

I think only you can do that, Stu: remember all the fuss with the CSS?Laughing

Another non-website designer who can get behind this. Question: would this be separate news to the forum, like the Article Comments on CVG-as-was, or just a public repository for our best typing?

There wouldn't be much point us writing news articles or anything like that which is gonna be the same as all the big sites. And if we give it comments it would just get confusing going between there and the forum. I'd say just keep it to major writes.

Yup, can completely get behind that. Maybe it would inspire a few more chappies of the Forum Fiction too? (Hey, a chap can dream...)

Aye, that sounds like a grand idea. An independent, not-for-profit, fan-made games site, featuring the grand folk of GNamer? Where do I sign?

Not-for-profit? Shocked

@Balla: The CSS incident: :affraid:

Good luck with this, Drunka! I'm intrigued to see how it spins out. Smile

We'll post whatever we feel like writing. Don't write because you feel like you need to fill a gap, but if you play something and want to share how you feel or if you have a thought you want to explore, write it down.

But why wouldn't I just post here if I'm playing monster hunter 4 for instance, why wouldn't I just go in that thread and post there.

Mate did you even read the thread?
We just want to write stuff about games and leave it somewhere it looks good and people can read it. If you just have a bit to say about a game you'd still put it in the thread but if you'd written a whole article you might want to put it somewhere you can show it off a little easier.

Okay that makes more sense like my very long bit on pier solar in the eShop thread. Also I guess you could link stuff to it like the release thread or the podcast.

The podcast is a definite yes, and I might copy stuff like my roboshoots article onto there.

Would there be a place for fiction? I've had a vague plan to write a little Pokémon story for two years now...

I love the sound of my own writing. Let me know when I'm to write an editorial on "why Dark Souls is just a rip-off of Labyrinth on the BBC Micro".

This site is going to be as random as this one often is, it seems. Laughing
