Guild Website

#1 Posted by selfconfessedcynic (2496 posts) -

Hey guys!

In the guild thread (page 21), posted his cool submission for what a guild website would be like if we ran one. Both myself and have had a look at it and we both think it's a cool idea to have one place to quickly reference what the guild is up to, who's in it and so on.

So now I'm turning it to you guys to see what you think and, in your opinion, what the positives and negatives would be if we use it. We have our own ideas on the matter, but I would love to get more opinions and won't colour yours with my own.

So. Some points to think on would be;

  • What are your gut reactions?
  • If we had a guild website, would you use it?
  • What would you add or subtract from what is there?
  • What would you like to see on the front page? (the rules are placeholder)

Feel free to make an account and poke around a bit.

Amazing work! Almost feels like a professional guild :P

Sounds like a great idea, if there's a forums it means members can post without feeling bad about spamming GB forums = P

Seems like you guys are on top of everything, LF sounds like it'll be good guild.

@WinterSnowblind: @JustKamToo:

Hey, thanks for the thoughts and great to see that you like it. Pretty much all the work on there should be attributed to

Looks nice, but I don't really want to register for another forum.

@zyn: Understood.

I won't say anything one way or another, but at the moment the site itself doesn't have a forums and the link on the left panel actually takes you here.

You would, however, have to sign up to shivtr in order to join the site's guild list (as far as I understand). This is done relatively seamlessly when you hit the join guild button.

Ah, that's great. Only reason why I don't want to post on another forum is that I mainly go to Giant Bomb, so I could/would miss out on guild stuff.

@zyn: The forum on the site is disabled, and this is still would be the forum. Its just easier to organize rosters, calenders, events ,and it lets us reference a single common link.
