Hi I was wondering maybe you could sorta adopt a blog approach to the
website, for additional freec ontent, here’s how it would work.
As you know the more you post in a forum, the greater your posting
tally. As your tally increases, your title increases. Well how about if
you contribute enough information on the forum and reach a certain tally
then you get a programming blog here. Basically this can be your
everyday code snippets, to your reflections on programming/games/
computer related events for that day. It could also be used to gain
feedback on your articles so that you can improve them before they get
posted on the devmaster website.
This is just an idea and I expect there maybe some work involved but
this in my opinion would allow
[a] Free content for devmaster
An incentive for users tobecome interactive on the forums thus
increasing activity on devmaster
[c] An increase in article content
and lastly if you can poach any devs say working on commercial projects
(although not directly commenting about these as such), then that’d give
an interesting viewpoint.

the only problem is when to judge someone worthy of a blog. It can’t be
post count only. The decision of apex perhaps?
Do you mean something similar to Code Snippets? That’s a good idea…but
why not use the forums for feedback and suggestions? That is, you can
post it here, and then when it’s ready, it can be moved to the main page
as a formal article.
Or do you mean, you’d like a seperate place to do all that?
Well basically a seperate place, just to spice things up. Think of it as
sort of having your own hosted website on devmaster. Oviously it would
be massively restricted as to what you can post/upload. But at least it
gives something different to the websites out there. I won’t be nasty,
but rather straight to the point. Devmaster is fighting in rather a
niche area especially ssince
www.gametutorials.com is around, devmaster must
provide some originality and, my idea is a way too sort of give that. I
do whole hearlty agree with the issue of spamming, maybe the person has
to reach a certain number of posts AND have contributed a certain number
PS I work as a programmer for a large utility company in the UK and the
emailer disclaimer is HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGGGGGGGGGGGGGE
PSS I was introduced to Mr Absinth last night, aaaarg
Arse there’s like these big saucer shaped ships just hovering over my
PS can I get a custom title since I er, sort of contribute, and I will
seriously try to provide an article by this weekend, I’m currently
rebuilding all of my default OGL files (keyboard, mousr, init, etc bla
blah mr Absinth|)
