New Video Gaming Forum!

Discussion in 'Gaming Discussion' started by MrCjTheFish, Mar 14, 2012.

  1. Greetings! This post is to announce the opening of a brand new forum. I had previously used the Everything else marketing place to help drum up some staff for the site, and we, (sorta) decided on a name.

    Anyway, about the forum. It is a forum dedicated to gaming, Pc, console, browser-based, whatever! We also are hoping that we can become a large roleplaying forum, as we have a section for that as well.

    Literally the forum just started today, so we have no members, and no posts. If you are interested in working on the forum, either as moderator or Admin, drop me a private message.

    Maybe in the future, if the forum grows to a reasonable size, @cpvrcpvr could do a partnership or something with us.

    The URL is
    http://video-gaming-forum.com/

    Help us out and join and make a few posts!

    Your banner/button can be located here for an entire month or year, please see our advertising on virtualpetlist thread for more information.

  2. I'm curious, why start a video-gaming forum? There are tons out there...for fun? For eventual profit? (though I have a hard time imagining such a forum ever doing such). But what the heck...*plans on posting random threads like crazy*

    EDIT: Awww...there aren't that many forums as I thought there would be. I only have a DS...
    And I find it unfair that you're giving a specific forum to just one series when it supposed to be for all kinds of games. D: Maybe you can group games to genres instead so that some boards won't look so empty?
     
  3. I registered, sounds fun! I love video games.
     
  4. Signing up - but I'm afraid you won't see me much in the first three sub-forums in the Games section. XD Oh well.
     
  5. bah. ive joined =)

    EDIT - Im not posting much. the website is VERY slow <_<

  6. Ya, that's a hard forum to run. There's so many competitors in that niche alone, but if you work hard, its possible to get big. Good luck with this @MrCjTheFishMrCjTheFish It'll be a tough road ahead.

    Starting it for fun really, hoping to have it go big.
    As for your concerns about lack of forums, well, keep I mind, the site just launched last night. I am open to suggestions/Reformatting the forum, and if you would like to play a role in this, please contact me via PM on the forum.

    @VermillionVermillion
    Awesome possum thanks!

    @vanillaeclairvanillaeclair
    Are you a handheld device gamer?

    @Don RelentlessDon Relentless
    Interesting. The site should be rather quick

    ---

    General notice- I am open to all suggestions on the forums, just hit me up via PM. The site is FOR all games, and ALL devices. While it may not reflect it at this time, please have some patience while I continue sorting things out.

    The sites ready to go, as it has the major gaming consoles and games, however, just a few final touches need to be made, and those with suggestions should contact me.

    There should be no problem with load times, it loads fast for me, and a few other people i've had test it.
    And if your interested in becoming staff, do please drop me a PM as well.

    By all games, I also mean Browser-based, MMO's etc.
    Still looking to find a better way to structure things

  8. Sort of - but I use the PC mostly as well.

    Ahh, I noticed you changed the Games section. :D That makes me happy.
     
  9. Hey, cool. You actually did change the boards in to genres. :D
    I'll start posting some stuff tomorrow. I have to sleep now.
     
  10. It looks pretty good thus far I must say.
     
  11. A little question: have I been verified already? Seems like I can't post in the forums yet...username's Kyrie. :D
     
  12. @HikaruHikaru
    Did you do the email thing where you check it and click the link? If not, or if so, and you are having trouble, let me know and I will manually verify you, as obviously you are not a bot...or are you? jkjk

  13. Well if there was an e-mail, I wouldn't be having this problem. /shot (which means that I didn't receive anything of the sort)
    I think it would be easier to manually verify me. XD
     
  14. Aw... you know. I browsed your forum a bit, I thought it would be fun, as I own many systems (Xbox360, Playstation3, Wii, DS, GBA, GBC, GC, Sega Genesis) as well as play PC games. But then you get a comment like...

    And that's an instant turn away for me. Especially as it's coming from the owner of the forum. I mean, seriously? Not very friendly.
     
  15. Are you not aware of the rivalry between owners of each console? I would assume that you would much rather have someone honest running the forum, then someone who is going to blatantly lie and sugar coat things. Not only did you forget to leave out the winky face, (Which is a clear indicator of a playful tone), but you left out the other half of my post
    As a gaming forum owner, I its not a big deal to me as to what console you play on. The community is a place for us to unite. Share our opinions, and network. As I stated before, would you rather have an admin thats going to lie to your face or give you HIS honest opinion on a console?

    I see nothing wrong with what I did, just having a bit of fun. Next time, if you have something like this to address with me, please contact me by other means, as opposed to making a public spectacle of it.

    If you are a gamer yourself, you should be aware of this huge rivalry between console owners. If not, just go to any trailer for a new game coming out, and look at the comments. Its a raging war.

    Previously, in my old gaming forum, we even had a console wars section, where people could respectfully battle it out as to which consoles better! People loved it! By saying "PLAYSTATION SUCKS!!!" its not an insult to the person, or a reflection of that person. Its a persons opinion. As opposed to saying "THE PS3 is garbage, blahblahblah" I choose to simply state that it was not my most preferred console.

    If you were offended by this post, I am deeply apologetic. If you have already made up your mind to stay away from the forum, then ultimately that is your choice, and there is nothing I can do about it. I would be honored to have you join up.

    If you wish to see this post remove, please let me know, as I will gladly remove it, whether you decide to sign up or not.



    @HikaruHikaru Okay your good now, the email must have gone to your spam or something.
