I have to say, I like Lackadaisical's design, and I love how he translated it to the wiki. I'd like to see how you translate it to the main site and a blog, if one comes about. But you pretty much got my sentiment in one, it's cleaner, it's smooth and you can differentiate between parts without usin...

but people might want their own blogs for other things. They can make those blogs wherever they choose. The idea isn't to aggregate news, it's to be the bearer of news. A blog.armagetronad.net needs to be one blog, solely focused on arma: the project in the way people use it. That said, I wouldn't ...

I wouldn't mind at all if we hosted armagetron player/developer blogs. I'd even post from time to time. Or better yet, if we hosted a feed, and people who wanted to have arma blogs could just have them wherever they want, and we'd keep a feed to all of them. I was thinking more like one blog, multi...

And by ever, I mean the time I've browsed the master list since 21. October, 2007.
It's more of a shrunkland game... Coincidentally, I stopped playing around that time.

Actually, one promo video idea that I've had jangling around in my noggin is using roulette and some regular players. Basically, put us all on a teamspeak server, and we roulette while jawing about whatever is going on. The idea is just a casual kind of video, that shows something somewhat interesti...

I created a Youtube profile, ArmagetronAdvanced. PM me for the passwd.

They won't let me modify it much for 48 hours, which seems like a foolish rule.

I tried to get ArmagetronAD, but some fool registered it last year and put up a bunch of Dark Knight and Iron Man vids. Srsly, some ppl. :)

@2020: I see what Concord is doing over there at playfortress, and I think it's pretty great. All the same, Fortress isn't the be all-end all of Armagetron, and I'd personally rather see one blog for the project and community at large. Free-for-all is still the most popular game mode in Armagetron. ...

And since we're looking to make one super-condensed video now instead of a tutorial series, I challenge any of you to write the copy for it. If you can come up with 60 (± 10) seconds of copy that says everything a brand new player needs to know to: I thought it looked like we were leaning to a tut ...

A Modest Proposal...

You have to expect from a title like that, nothing is going to be modest about it. Anyway, I've been thinking about Arma lately, and the site in particular. Right now, the Arma site is borderline derelict, and rarely updated, with good reason. Frankly, guru3 and the other devs have more than enough ...

A common platform, which can easily be taken and used on other sites. Something people are already comfortable with. It just makes more sense than hosting it here.

I have to say, 2020, I'm not exactly sure what you want to do with Prezi. Have any tuts embedded into the Prezi presentation, and then force people to go through that? I say simpler is better, and people are already very comfortable with simple youtube videos. Why route them through yet another tech...

I feel like video tutorials should somehow be part of armagetronad.net (is there enough bandwidth?). Maybe a "tutorials" link on the main page can go to a youtube channel temporarily. There's no need to reinvent the wheel. A youtube channel with videos there, and an embedded youtube player on armag...
