PostSubject: Community website?   Mon Apr 11, 2011 2:38 pm

Iron and me have thought about this for quite a while now, and now it's time to make the dreams reality.

Basically, before the SWD Community server first came into being, Iron and me thought of one mega community for the demo which would gather all players of all clans. This community, which would likely take the form of a website with forums, would gather pretty much everything demo related into one place.


What we thought of doing originally was this:

- 1 section for clan wars. Contains all known demo wars since 2003 or so. Mix wars and fun wars are not included here. In that section there is also a place which you can ask for live wars vs other demo clans.

- 1 ''tutorial'' section. Basically this section contains explicit and easy to follow tutorials on game play strategies, information about the game (weapons, vehicles, etc), instruction on how to set up a server, and, of course, modding tutorials of all kinds. I can work on this for most of the content.

- A third section named ''Media''. Basically it contains all demo movies (montages, frag highlights movies, cup highlights vids, mod highlights vids) on an integrated video player on the site (not linked on YouTube), in a section named precisely ''Videos''. There are also two other sections; one named ''Screenshots'' (contains pictures of all kinds, but mostly wars, PCWs, mods, cups, etc), and a third one called ''Banners and logos'' (fan made material, pretty self-explanatory).

- A fourth section called ''Downloads''. Contains all demo mods (client-side and server-side), programs and utilites (such as Anticheat.exe), with pictures for each downloads, a brief description, how to install and download mirrors to choose from

- A fifth section called ''Demo Ladder''. In there all cups, tournaments, and events in general are organized by all demo clan leaders. All of the leaders have equal power and must help organizing events when they are voted. Clan war, mix war, fun war and private clan war protocols (how they are done) are also included.

- A sixth section which I dubbed ''The Clan Area''. Basically a place for clans to advertise for their clans, recruit, ask for wars vs other clans... Could be a special area in the forums.

- A seventh section with an accesible in-game menu so players can browse through Internet servers directly without going in-game.

- An eigth section (reserved to clan leaders) where all evidence against hackers is kept (screenshots and videos). Not accessible to regular members.

- A ninth section displaying all the members of the community, and information about it.


Now, the only problem here I think would be financial limitations. We are going to have to start with a free domain name first, then maybe switch to a real one once we see that the community kicks off to a good start. I will ask Rensa if he can assemble the site once I found a good enough looking template.

Iron, don't put money into it BEFORE knowing how successful the community turns out to be, because you will have wasted all your money. Let's find a free domain first and see what happens.
