Hey everyone, I just figured I would post a quick message about how things are going here at the friendspot. First of all if you registered to for the forums but your account was not activated, it is now (sorry about that!) Long story short we were getting destroyed with spam – and the only activity on the forum were spam accounts, so I was regulating them but got a bit behind in actually allowing real accounts in. Speaking about the forums things have been a bit slow there, stop over and post it up a bit! It is no secret that one of the main reasons this site used to be a bit more active is the features that have unfortunately gone away – but the original intent of the site still remains – a place for friends to hang out and make new friends. In fact the podcast exists entirely because it was always an idea I had, and also something new we could bring to the site.
Speaking of the podcast – Ymiris, Antediluvia and I were just discussing it – we all still think its fun to do and plan on doing another show soon – hopefully you guys think it’s worth giving it a listen. I personally have been pretty impressed with the number of listeners – especially when you look at the number of hits the actual site gets, so clearly we are getting some traffic from just itunes directly that aren’t joining the site – at least not yet!
In other site news – I am still looking for people who want to post news stories and/or reviews on the site – I just can’t keep the site up to date with news and reviewing games. I used to keep up better but lately with the coding I have been doing at 360voice and gamerdna, hanging out with the family, a bit of my own blogging, and if there is any time left actually PLAYING games…. I just cannot do it alone. If we weren’t doing the podcast I might have a bit more time to try and keep the news flowing – but why give away one feature to have another, hopefully we can have both. Maybe if we can keep the news and game opinions flowing we can keep the lifeblood flowing. There were quite a few of you in the past that wanted to do one or many of these things but we haven’t really gotten anything flowing yet – so the invitation still stands for those of you that really want to forge a place in the interwebs as a writer or “staff” member of a site, or those that just really want to help out and keep the site alive.No comments
