New Front Page

If I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard “Man, we need to get around to turning the front page of Dumpshock into a blog”, I’d have quite a few nickels.

This is kind of temporary; eventually we want to build something with more features and more visual appeal, but I’m sure we all think this is preferable to a white page with some links. Those links, BTW, are over on your right, to all the Dumpshock sites that are currently up, and to the Dumpshock Matrix sites.

In the future we’ll be posting to the front page more often; about site updates, Shadowrun news from FanPro, WizKids, and other sources as relevant, and “Shadowrun in the real world” posts.

Right now, this is still very much “beta”, but we’re working on it…

    Get an anti-spam plugin for WordPress ASAP. I used to get comment-spammed, but haven’t had any problems since installing Spam Stopgap Extreme.

    Comment spamming is the use of unsecured comment pages (like this one) to create hundreds of dummy comments linking back to a website. This fools Google into raising its ranking for the spammer’s website. These dummy comments are typically generated by scripted ‘bots. A good anti-spam plugin makes it hard (if not impossible) for these ‘bots to function. Since installing Stopgap, I haven’t had a single spam comment post to my site.

    Best of luck with WordPress! If you have any questions, please feel free to look me up ;).

    We’ll certainly be adding some robust anti-spamming stuff — now that WordPress 1.5 final is out, we’ll be upgrading to that and then tinkering with plugins and the style sheet and whatnot.

    Poles like that. 🙂
    Privately, I prefere old one (this IMO is too bright).
    But is good that something shacking in DS 🙂

    Splendid! DS back online and in a shiny new format! Ultra cool, guys…

    Question is, though, where do you go from here? I’m seeing expansion, databases, community stuff, the Shadowrun Archive linked in and ultimately, of course, WORLD DOMINATION!

    If I can place a weighted request, it’s re-post the CLUE file archives PLEASE!! I do so miss the stupidity, and it’s difficult to train new Shadowrunners via the humorous.. I mean… tragic… deaths of their comrades at the shallower end of the gene pool.
    I mean, who could forget classic lines like:
    “I wave at the attack chopper”
    “Flames shoot out from behind the rockets hanging on the wing pylons”
    “I give it a thumbs’ up sign!”
