    Did any of you notify Bill about any career/employment updates throughout the years? It's not unusual for writers to have multiple outlets where they share their work. 
    True but why wouldn't they tap into an already established community and let them know they have a sister site?

    I'm not worried about this site or anything but in the past they did announce other sister sites, such as the one that was based around fps games for example.
    Correct me if I'm wrong but I kinda remember seeing the links for RTSguru etc.., before they really said anything about it. That said, Bill's response makes sense, soft launch, get the kinks worked out, then advertise away. 
    Exactly! We also wanted a backlog of content, both of the news variety and feature article variety too. :)

    Oh was it RTS? i thought it was about FPS games? In any case I actually saw the announcement here. But I couldn't say if it was up and running for a while before they announced it.

    An official announcement will come next week, and Ben is working on having a post feed from GameSpace here, and there having one from MMORPG.com.

    Woops... if I could I'd put the cat back in the bag but it'd probably end up like this:

    They had a couple of those secondary guru sites, FPS and RTS I'm not sure if there were others.

    Yes, it's us. No, you didn't miss an announcement. We soft launched. Didn't really want too many people seeing the bugs, but most are fine now.

    An official announcement will come next week, and Ben is working on having a post feed from GameSpace here, and there having one from MMORPG.com.

    This site isn't going anywhere. Not for a long long time. But we are taking your suggestion, and slowly moving non MMO content off here to there. 

    So yep. It's us. And yes, it's awesome. And no, it's not the new MMORPG. However, we like it so much, that if Ben ever has time to figure out how to migrate us there, we just might use a similar setup for the new MMORPG. :)

    So please, bookmark it, use it, comment. Make reviews, send us ideas, email me or DM me here if you want to write (it's all volunteer - as there's zero income there yet).

    We'd be glad to have you there. 
    I'm not crazy about the layout. It's way too busy and unorganized. Also feels like there's too many choices and I don't know where to click.

    Those were them. They sadly didn't pan out. We own RPG Guru too, but will probably leave it alone for a while.

    Looks like someone is trying to be more like Massively.

    Also explains why they gave up on efforts to upgrade this site.

    1.) How?

    2.) Nope. Just don't have another fortune lying around to pay for it, so it's all on Ben.

    Are you telling me that you paid someone to upgrade the site twice and they didn't give you your money back when they failed? They didn't complete the job, so shouldn't they either refund you in full or you know, actually succeed?

    @BillMurphy Kudos! I'm digging GameSpace, I like it!

    Question: Do I need to register or can I log in with my MMORPG credentials?

    I had to create a new account. I tried my mmorpg username/password and it didn't work. If you have a wordpress account linked to your email it will import your default Gravatar. If you don't want that then make changes.
    Thank you, Thank you =)

    I like it that way, things I don't normally gravitate toward may catch my eye and introduce me to something I would have otherwise missed. They have features to sort your desired tastes though. If you click All games, there is a huge filter option as well.
    Yep, you can customize what you see really easy with the drop down NAv.

    Nice!!! Good choice going with Wordpress. Much nicer to work with than most other tools. Forums are broken, though, I was trying to find a Star Citizen thread, but couldn't :awesome:

    Agreed I wanted to post some sort of obnoxious "FIRST!" post on the forums last night but they didn't appear to be up yet.
