Site updates: Sept 2013 tag:hypeup.net,2013:index.php/theforum/viewthread/.62 2013-09-09T03:22:34Z 0 Random Hey people, just an update on the site for those who are interested.

We’ve recently changed our format to features only, meaning we’re not covering all the news just the stuff that’s big and we’re spending more time working on original content. We’re attending TGS as press (Buri and I) again this year and we’ll be doing a lot of hands on features, podcasts and video stuff in a few weeks.

Seeing as the comments have basically died out on articles, we’re getting killed with registration spam, and not a single new (valid) member has joined the site in 2013, I’ve moved back to Disqus for comments. It drives traffic through their network, and will probably result in more commenting than we have now. Walled online communities are dead, and they aren’t coming back. We have to adjust to the times and make the site more accessible with minimal effort to make any progress on building a community. Some people didn’t care for this decision last time I made it, but frankly there’s not enough members here that are active regularly for me to care that much. I’ve put an enormous amount of time into building this site, and I’m just going to continue experimenting with different formats and features until something works out well, rather than just letting it rot until I lose interest.

That’s pretty much it. happy

The Dark Knight Rises Leaked Trailer tag:hypeup.net,2011:index.php/theforum/viewthread/.42 2011-12-20T04:13:35Z 0 Random http://kotaku.com/5869296/watch-the-dark-knight-rises—full-trailer-now

Pretty stoked for this movie, next summer seems a long way away. I really hope it can live up to the hype and expectations, but I have a lot of faith in Nolan.

13 years!  This is basically SG right? tag:hypeup.net,2013:index.php/theforum/viewthread/.46 2013-01-07T14:45:30Z 2013-01-07T14:46:01Z smeared ink Today (Jan 6) is my 13 year anniversary of joining Square Gamer.  Since SG does not appear to exist(??) for me to spam, I’ll spam about it here!  Free love for all!

See you in 13 years.

EDIT: Please note that I am in a timezone where this post is correct.

Hype Up 3.0! tag:hypeup.net,2013:index.php/theforum/viewthread/.56 2013-03-29T02:59:06Z 2013-03-29T03:13:34Z Random Hey guys, we’re launching another new version of the site today. It’ll be a little buggy here and there, I’m aware of most of the stuff and will be fixing it over the next few days. If you notice anything extremely broken let me know. The forum will be particularly ugly for a few days, but I’ll get it sorted as quick as possible.

The main focus for this version of the site was to make it completely responsive to browser size, be it desktop or mobile. The entire site is now capable of shrinking down to as small as your iphone screen without losing any content or functionality. I think you’ll find it to be a much better experience, particularly on mobile and tablet. You’ll notice this mostly on the news/game pages for now, but I’ll be converting more areas over. It’s a lot easier for me to do it with the site live.

So, there ya go.

Testing New Comment System This Week tag:hypeup.net,2013:index.php/theforum/viewthread/.48 2013-01-29T13:33:47Z 0 Random Just a note, we’ll be testing using the Disqus comment system this week to encourage more commenting from non-members. This system allows you to sign up to comment using a Disqus account (widely used for commenting on blogs), your twitter, facebook or google+ account. While you wont be able to comment using your Hype Up account, I’m hoping this gets more discussion going by eliminating the need to sign up. Please feel free to leave any feedback here. Based on how it works out we may or may not continue to use it.

We’ll be importing previous comments into the new system also.

The Re-Introduce Yourself Thread tag:hypeup.net,2011:index.php/theforum/viewthread/.12 2011-09-01T08:59:50Z 0 Random Ok so if you came here from Square Gamer and changed your handle, give your old handle, and something about yourself, or something. If you’re new, then introduce yourself.

I’m Random, Grey Fox from SG AKA Shaun and I’m running this site.
