First Blog

Posted by mesenberg on April 22, 2005, 11 p.m.

This is my first official blog at this cool new site. I plan on updating this regularly.

News on my current project:

Captan Shock is my current project which I am planning to release to the gmc and here in a few days after the beta testers finish doing what they do best.

After this project has been released I plan on working on an rpg that I started recently, there just arn't enough gm made rpg's, too many platformers.

"I plan on updating this regularly."

Sweeeeeet. XD

Anyway, there is a forum…Sort of. It's full of spam though, and it's phpBB. Sooo, I don't really want to show that one to the public. (You can get the link to it from <a href="http://www.64digits.com/users/index.php?userid=jakex" target="_blank">JakeX</a>'s blog.)

I never really thought about making a forum for this site. I always just sort of thought of each user page as a topic, and the commetns a reply.

Right now, with a small community, it'll seem like you need a forum, but if the site gets big, you won't really need a forum. The only thing that a forum can give, that a user page can't, is advertising. Like on the GMC. People mostly just use that for advertising.

Eventualy, if the 64D community gets big, the advertisment will be through word of mouth, rather than topics.

The website toplist isn't too bad an idea though. If we get enough users with websites, I might make that a feature. (Right now it'd look stupid, since there's not that many users with websites on here yet.)

And lastly, the banner ads are a good idea. However, when you see a brand new GM site, and the first thing you see are ads, what are your first thoughts? Probably something like "Pfft, this site just wants money", or something like that. And it'll drive new members away.

Once we get a lot of members, and the site gets known enough, that people will be told to come here by their friends, rather than some advertisment, THEN we can impliment banner ads.

However, that probably won't be for a while.

Thanks for the inquiry. It's the first one we've gotten since the site opened. =P

P.s. I left you a comment, rather than sending you an e-mail, 'cause you say you'll be active here. And I <b>personaly</b> think that it's anoying to get e-mails, and that it's far more convenient to simply read comments on your blog.

Hope you enjoy your stay here. ^_^

Cool, an RPG. There are definitely not enough of those. If I were motivated I might make an RPG.

Well, thanks for your comments firestorm.

And charlo, the motivation would be because it has a high chance of getting attinsion since they're popular.
