    Gaming Website (Just a raise of hands)

    The reason I say just a raise of hands is because I wanna start one, and really hope to make it somewhere this time, depending on the time I can contribute myself. I wanna know that I may have a backing to help me.





    Forum/Website Name: Not named yet...



    Role(s/Services needed) required: Co-Admin, Mods, content writers, Gfx Team, the whole sha-bang ... this is basically a need for staff to get the site started, and moving before really going into seeking members.. Co-Admins would follow under content writers as well...



    Paid or not: Not Paid, however, if we get a good following of members, and we can offer premium items, we can then offer them the ability to donate, and also maybe put in subscriptions which allows the member access to the quality stuff (like Videos, Images, etc, from games, that may not have been seen by anyone yet.)



    Method of Contact: You can contact me here either through this topic, or through my pm... it's better just to do it here for now saying that you would be interested...



    Other details: Now, that I have your attention I wanna make it clear, that the site will be very professionally ran... no kiddies acting out, no stupid weird looking templates, but rather more sleek looks... I really wanted to do this, and I have ideas... we can start small so yeah our look may look noobish for now, but as the site progresses, and I get money, I will put my money into making the site worth visiting.



    I will be returning to college, so I will def need an admin who can run a site while I am away if I get backed up in homework.. but I will be put into work at a hospital so I will spending time there, but I will also be spending time on the site. I just need a team willing to work if I am not around.



    This may sound weird cause what's the point in running a site if the admin himself doesn't even show up, and this will not be the case... I will show up, but I won't be doing it every day once August Rolls around..



    Anyways, just post if ya are interested, with the time you can contribute, so that I can get a good look. I won't even be mad if no one posts here, as I would then just have to find another site willing to help lol. Anyways I brought it here first since this site is apart of me. I spent alot of countless hours working on the site before leaving, and have returned.. I trust alot of people here, so I know I will hopefully find the people I need.





    --Also if you wish to ask any questions feel free right here, I will explain the background of how the site will work through a pm to you though... So if you asked me how the gaming site would be, I will send ya a pm..



    All other questions can be answered here I think, depending on the question lol.

    hmm, I think this is interesting. I'd like to give it a try.

    I'm always interested in creating a forum not only a forum, but a unique and a professional forum, but searching for team members and great topic/theme is a bit hard for me.

    if you'll let me to, maybe I'll apply as co-admin or moderators. I might not too familiar of games anymore right now, but I can help you with other things, but I'll help as much as I could. I'll probably get busy soon too, university gonna start, but this idea sounds interesting to me and I'll do my best to manage my time so I can still come there and help out with few things.



    as for questions..

    what kind of games are you planning to based your forum on? all platforms? or only to special, specific games?



    aside that.. I think I don't have any question now. just contact me if there's anything new. ^__^

    Re: Gaming Website (Just a raise of hands)

    Yeah it won't be focused on just one game, as I seen that was less of a gaming site and more of a fan-site.



    This will take alot of time, that I hope to start working on soon, and maybe working on through my college time. I think I should be able to find the time. It's going to require a team, and if only means two people right now that is fine, but the site will def need people willing to write, or atleast find content to post about..



    It's weird to explain especially since my thoughts are to bundled up right now.



    The main idea is giving gamers,clans a place to visit, and interact together, and talk about games, their own clans, and what not.. a place to chill and learn if needed.



    It won't be really a gaming gaming clan like IGN,GameSpot, or what not but the same premise. Games,Clans, Clan based events that clans themselves run, and we actually post about it on the site.. The site would have teams that go around the clans on the current site and ask them about their clans, and any events the clans maybe holding so that clans that actually play the same game could also join in on the fun.. like a clan advertising site, with all the fixins. Places to rent servers, website hosting, and what not.



    Just have to figure it all out so that it makes much more sense, then running in with guns a blazing lol. Sorry for the long response but it's needed for this thing.



    Actually right now that I have someone slightly interested I have already wrote down staff duties and names, along with some names (Only 2) but they can always be fixed.. I am going to install a mybb forums on one of my hosts so that I could work on it for later date.

    ah, I see.

    well, yeah, from your descriptions, it sounds like we're going to need a lot of work to build the site. but that's just the risk we must take if we want to make a professional forum; a big forum can't be built in just a blink of an eye.

    and building such community sounds fun. I wish you good luck. and as I said before, just contact me if you need any help, I'd do all I can to help you. ^^

    and I have replied your PM, haha~ XD

    no problem, man. and yeah, I don't mean to make it sounds so heavy and scary by saying "professional", of course we couldn't be to strict, although we do need to be strict in some points later on. ^^" but since you want to do this not only for fun but for real forum, I kinda understand it as "professional", hehe~ X3

    Yeah, nothing to big, I mean there wouldn't be an arcade, but at the same time I wanna be able to provide some sort of incentive for them to even visit...



    I also want to make sure it's fun... hopefully I can get some others interested in helping so I can get a bigger base.

    Would your site be like: http://www.gamezone.com/ , or can you show a site how it will look like ? So I can get a picture.



    I like your idea Macster it could work out and have alot of success. But it also could not work out, it all depends on the team, time, and other factors.

    @Hermes - I will consider it, also do you have a place I can check out your work. The stuff I would need won't be nothing major simply because I won't need it lol... just some icons, banner(s), and what not.





    @Master:



    neither of both, let me get an idea for you on what I was looking for, but may not find one simply because alot of them lose track of their goals.



    This would be like something I was talking about, however I actually was a support mod there, but the staff was slow at the time, and I lost all track after I couldn't get on here.



    http://www.gamersconnect.net/



    The basis of of the name is awesome, however they really don't focus on all games in general but more of just counter strike... that's not the purpose I am looking for, I am looking for a more of a general discussion for clans and gamers alike... a place where they can chill out, and take a step away from the games and their clans, and just relax and talk with gamers just like them about games they love, don't love etc...



    Like I said, it will take time and hard work to make sure it is running right and that the goals are still the same goals from day one to day 2 to day 300, simply making sure we offer a site where it's not about just one game, it's about all the games being playing by gamers, and clans.



    Once I get a foundation going I can work more on setting up how it works lol.
