Big Dumb Guy

ImageHey folks out there, I'm a bad attempt at a humorously themed This Week on .Org. This week has been thrilling or something, and I am Robot Indiana Jones. I'm a dalek, obviously, because the only other robots available are cybermen and well... you... hear stories...

There are actually two huge pieces of news this week.


Basically, I wanted to take pride in the fact we aren't just a forum staff, but also a team of active web developers, striving to create the best software for your experience here. I have therefore set up an open Private Subforum, called #hbdev, where any website development work will be discussed. You can feel free to chime in with help, opinions, feedback, suggestions, or just general praise. That's what the forum is there for. Think of it as a brainstorming forum.

Along these lines, we have just launched a beta of something we've been working on for a long time:

Resources - Graphics Gallery

This is part of what's become known as "the mainsite" though to be honest I don't want it thought of as such. It is as much a part of the forums as the forums are a part of it, turning HBGames.org into a much more powerful engine to be a part of than just your typical RM forum.

The resource gallery will eventually also house scripts (coming soon). For now, you can host and find graphical resources on there. We need your feedback and suggestions, of course, on how to improve this service.

Five Year Anniversary Contest

Back to general news, and the Five Year Anniversary Contest has drawn to an end. I won't spoil the surprise, the winners are in the thread, which can be found here. The contest was to celebrate five years of us as a community, spanning back to May 2004 when Lord Gradient created the website and forums RMXP.NET. Since then we have always been the prominent member of the RM community. As a thank you, and celebration, some of the staff created this contest - which has huge cash prizes by the way - and well, the results are finally in.


I probably mentioned this last week, but be sure to check out the ezine (viewforum.php?f=202). The old issues from RMXP.NET and RMXP.org have been saved, by Zeriab, DerVVulfmann, and Tana; (thanks guys!) and it's all been arranged in a "directory" of sorts at the top of it's forum.

New Blood

Not many this week, but then it is a week after newyears. A warm welcome to:

New Forum Theme

Aqua In Red has been remade with new images. Basically the old one sucked, sorry about that, I put it down to bad colours on my monitor.

Admittedly I don't pay as much attention to music as I could do, but there have been some cool threads in there this week, such as the .ORG online jam session (viewtopic.php?f=93&t=69203).

Rumbler made some music (viewtopic.php?f=93&t=69259), and er oh, the weekly music workshop thread is cool too! (viewtopic.php?f=93&t=57994)
