I like the idea of having a section with links to blogs that people here run.

LB I didn't have anything specific in mind just a general question but I'll PM you if I have a more specific question.

Any chance you could give us a general idea of the content you are looking for?

Blast off!

First article is live.

Folks, don't thank me. While I was in here feeding the animals, Brant was busy either beating the code monkeys or pretending to be a code monkey.

He deserves the credit for the front page.

As for blame? See Jarhead.

Sweet! 


However, I'm torn over whether to read the article or not.  I'm already sorely tempted to get Shogun 2 as it is...

Just a quick note for y'all... 

We've got ads on the main site.  We're already running this on a bit of a shoestring and we're still very much in start-up mode, so as you can guess, the ads are pretty important to the overall health of the site.

Please check out some of our advertisers and see what they've got to offer.  They're all hard-working folks who design great games and deserve a slice of your attention.  You'll see some more stuff slowly added to the rotation over the next few weeks, so keep an eye our for cool stuff popping up all along the way.

Brant,
The adds are not showing for me yet. Are they on the main forum page or the home page? Also, with content on the home
page we definitely need a link back from each section. The easiest way for that, as another person mentioned, would be for
the Grogheads logo in the upper left to redirect to the home page instead of the forum main page. We already have a link
from each subforum in the menu row.

We don't have any ads running the forums yet. One step at a time :)

I wasn't seeing the homepage adds either this morning. Now the CK2 add is visible on the right side.

Edit: The top add is showing as well. Condition Green!

If you don't mind me asking do you guys get revenue per click on the adds or what.
