Site Updates and Reactivating our Feeble Attempts at a Forum

First a few quickies:

– New WordPress theme in the works – I want a cleaner look, bigger fonts.
– Last month we gave 12.5bil in kickbacks for May. I already paid 3.5bil in kickbacks for April but I am far from finished so please be patient.
– No more carrier raffles, we’ll put on a PLEX lottery instead.
– We are now offering the current EN24 GTC advertisement spot to three interested entities. email [email protected] for details. (3.5bil each at this size) *Rules apply*

EveNews24 Reach

We have managed to consistently serve 1.8 million webpages to 160,000 unique computers every month since the year started. While this might sound impressive, we are far from over. We’ll keep pushing our blogger and * LIVE * initiative as we also try to come up with new ideas to complement your Eve Online experience. Big thanks to the staff, the syndicated bloggers, tipsters, collaborators, readers and commenters who have always been willing to make this project grow.

100,000 genuine comments!

– This is amazing, a land mark has been reached as we enforce anti-spam moderation. We are giving a PLEX to the registered Intense Debate/Wordpress user who has posted the most comments as a result of this.

Mobile Theme

– The only reason we haven’t been able to offer mobile theme support is because of the agressive caching implemented on Eve News24. So I am setting up a new server (m.evenews24.com) and throughout the week I will setup a proper site mirror with a different domain.

Last month we got over 90,000 page requests from mobile devices. This is a priority for us.

The CarebearNation – Write a guide: Earn ISK

– The CarebearNation is almost a go. We hope for it to be a beacon for new players to complement their EVE Online experience. We’ll be paying 100mil for each “useful” guide and insight written toward new and old players alike.

We are deeply interested in letting players share their personal EVE Online experience. We got some really good bloggers on board for this one. The aforementioned guides will be offered free to our readers, their authors will earn a bit of ISK-cash, and the EVE Online player retention will benefit from this greatly.

Interested? email – [email protected]

Forums

We have been running the forums as a beta for a while as I learned the inner working of the board. I even poured TEST’s reddit into it and nothing really broke.

So what’s next?

I am pushing for a sandbox type of forum, player driven – a interesting little experiment if you will.

Some rules:

– Regular Moderators are barred from viewing any poster’s IP address.
– No forum Divas – Rep circle jerking will be dealt with with fire.
– Cleaner look for the time being, no flashy backgrounds.
– I am leaving anonymous posting on. As a result any offenders – as in posting child porn/extreme gore/personal attacks will have their subnet banned and IP published.

Feel free to come on by at:

If you wish to be part of the community management, shoot me an email and let’s have a talk.

      I can't totally agree with this, as there is some obvious bias from time to time in the regular articles(I expect it in battle reports, but not reports by the staff). I will say this issue is being addressed by adding people from more than one side to the staff.

      However, I have been a fairly regular reader and commenter for over a year now for a reason. It is the only regularly updated news site that actually has news worth reading, even if you have to take it with a grain of salt.

      Keep it up guys, the black marks on your record will clear up more and more as time goes on, and you will end up as a reliable, unbiased(or usefully biased) as a professional news site.

    It's "I am" not "am". Sorry to say this, but it's really annoying.

      The Spanish version of the conjunction "I'm" is "soy" (first person version of "am"). It is common for people to try to carry phrases and lingo from their primary language into other languages they might speak. For instance, I made the mistake of saying "its burning up in here" in Spanish once "se esta ardiente aqui" to a friend… which was not taken the way it was intended.

      It's always messy when you use a cyno exploit and lit a cyno from inside a pos and drop triage carriers 2 nyxes and an avatar onto us…
