System Change: Viewing Your Warning Level

Posted by Gaiiden, in GDNet 03 March 2012 · 1,745 views

I want to make everyone aware of a change we made during a recent review of our moderating procedures and policy. We've enabled the option for users to see their warning level - this will appear as a bar beneath your avatar under each forum post you make and also in your profile page. It appears exactly as the moderators see it and it will only appear...

Just want to make a quick official update about some of the changes and additions you may have noticed we've made to the moderation team over the past few months.

Open Tagging vs. Closed Tagging

When we launched the site upgrade and announced that we had a new tagging system, it was also made clear that this system was closed, which meant that we supplied the tags you all could select from. The primary reasoning behind...

Revised partnership with GPWiki and what it means for GDWiki

Posted by Gaiiden, in GDNet 02 September 2011 · 1,411 views
The GameDev.net Wiki (GDWiki) has not seen a lot of attention from us on staff for a number of reasons, the largest one simply being a lack of resources. This has been the case for quite some months now, even before the switch to the new site. The wiki was originally based off of the Game Programming Wiki...

Content Rating/Reputation System and Call for Site Developers

Posted by Gaiiden, in GDNet 18 July 2011 · 803 views

Firstly, this is not a post describing how we will solve the rating/reputation system. That is still an ongoing process that will require further discussion internally, with the mods and with the general community. We invite you to continue to leave your thoughts/suggestions and responses to the ongoing discussion taking place in...

Over the last two years I have been personally meeting with several people behind various other independently-owned game development websites. Sharing drinks at various conference parties, we've all had many a conversation about ways that we can work together to better serve our audience in mutually beneficial ways. While we here at GameDev.net have...

Article system update

Posted by Gaiiden, in GDNet 27 April 2011 · 591 views

Over the past week and a half I've been spending the majority of my time going through the archives of articles and making sure they are formatted properly, images are included, source files are attached, that sort of thing. For most of the time I'm simply going in article number order, one after another, but I'm also keeping an eye on issues...

Cleaning up the Articles & Resources

Posted by Gaiiden, in GDNet 07 April 2011 · 724 views

This past week I was finally able to start looking into the various problems that exist with our articles after they have been moved over from the old site. One of the main things that has been bugging people is that they aren't quite so easy to find these days. You can no longer run a search on archive.gamedev.net which means you have to rely on the...
