The current ‘Nade – The state of the Website
I took some time and decided to write this post to talk to you about the current state of the website. What’s going on? Is the site dead? Is Engine dead? Is Tarquin busy training elephants? Has Don joined a circus?
None of that is true. As you
might imagine we all have our lives, jobs and families. I’m working two jobs right now, being a Game Designer by day and a Freelance Designer by night. Finding time for Daily’Nade has become almost impossible for me in the last months, but that hasn’t stop me from working for you guys.
I wanted to do a much bigger annoucement than this but, I think I owe you some explanations.
There’s a totally new Daily ‘Nade coming and it’s gonna be awesome.
How awesome the new ‘Nade is?
How much can I teach you about Urban Terror? Sure it’s a deep game, but I have my own way to play and certainly it’s not the only way to play the game or maybe the right way to play the game. That’s why we had guest post, but that wasn’t enough.
That’s why Daily ‘Nade 2.0 is gonna feature user generated content.
You will be able to register to the website, create your articles and submit them. Everybody will be able to read and comment on your articles and also to rate them with a thumbs up / thumbs down method, so that great articles can stand up from the crowd.
Comments will still be registration free and all the current articles will be there too.
So are you leaving the heavy lifting to other people?
Of course not. I will be there to approve all the articles and maintain the website and eventually fix the bugs that will pop up. The website is being completely rewritten so it’s gonna be an all new ‘Nade.
Also the website will become totally ads-free. No more banners, no more publicity.
The aim of the new website is the same of the old website: unite and aggregate all the possible resources about Urban Terror. There are a lot of great players out there who are ready to share their thoughts and tips about Urban Terror. With your help we can grow together and serve as a great help for both the community and the game. Also it will support multiple languages, so that you can post your articles (or translations of existing ones) in every language you want.
Today, Daily ‘Nade still has hundreds of visitors from all around the world, and it is still the best and biggest resource for Urban Terror tips, tricks and tutorials.
It’s all good and stuff but when we’ll be able to see something?
Do you want to see a screenshot? Really? Ok, here we go.
Comment on what you think about the layout and the features. I most certainly forgot something, but it’s gonna be big.
I think that it will take me a month or so to finish the works. Meanwhile I would like to hear from you what you think about the project.
Are you going to contribute with articles to the new website? Tell us in the comments!
It’s the good old ‘Nade, just better.
