What ho all! Welcome to our first-ever site news post.
The purpose of the site news post is to keep our readers apprised of some behind-the-scenes aspects of Lusipurr.com. Some of the information may already have been related in passing during the Megaphones Ahoy! Podcast, whereas other news items might be completely new to our readers. We at Lusipurr.com hope that the site news post will educate and inform our readers. Please use the comments to let us know what you think of the following proposals:
- We are considering adding a PayPal ‘Donate’ link to the sidebar at right. Because Lusipurr.com does not use advertising of any sort, all of the operating costs of the site (~$200-250 US per annum) come from staff donations. To help offset the burden on the staff–who already work for free–we would like to give charitable readers the option to throw away their money quickly and easily. What do you think of this plan?
- Lusipurr.com has formed a professional TF2 team to play in the ETF2L, and there is a monthly open TF2 night for casual, fun play. Everyone loves multiplayer games without monthly fees! That said, would you be interested in once-monthly, casual play of one of the free-play Blizzard titles (Diablo II, Starcraft II, or Warcraft III) during a TF2 off week?
- The site is considering streamlining and professionalising content, including forming a press department responsible for creating and maintaining industry contacts with developers, publishers, and other news outlets. We are also considering creating a review rating system. What are your thoughts on these potential directions for the site?
As always, we appreciate any and all feedback that we receive. Your comments will shape the direction of the site. After all, without our readers, there is no site at all!
