XNA Society (link) launched Saturday night so it is extremely new. We already have 8 members beside me and 1 article submitted by a member. This site has been in development for somewhere around 3 months and I have been working extremely hard over the last couple of weeks to get it done. The purpose of this site is to have central place for developers to post articles, tutorials, and samples based upon the XNA framework in order to help other developers and aspiring gamers. Once you have registered for an account, you will be granted access to submit your very own content and rate others as well. Good luck and thanks for joining! http://www.xnasociety.com

The website does look neat indeed. I tried to register but the link to register did not work for me.

The only other XNA site where you can upload your own articles that I can think of is Ziggyware, which I go to all the time. I figured it wouldn't hurt to have two sites instead of one. The only thing that bothers me about Ziggyware is that they only get like 0-3 posts on average in the forums a day.

How would you then make your site more interesting? Ziggyware has been there for some time now... Would the new site be able to get more average daily posts?

I'm not trying to compete with Ziggyware, only provide another source of information. Once we get more members (a lot more members), I would love to be getting between 20-50 posts in the forum daily but it's too early to tell if that would happen. I honestly don't know why the forum at Ziggyware is so slow, especially since they are so popular.

Submitting content to Ziggyware is typically done through e-mail with attachments including all the images and project files, but on XNA Society, you fill out a form on the website. You can use the form to upload up to 10 images, a project icon, and your project files. No e-mailing required.

On XNA Society, the categories in which you submit content are more diverse. There are 12 different categories which can be used to find content easier using the search. Most articles on Ziggyware go to one category called "XNA Tutorials and XNA Tools".

One interesting thing about XNA Society is that your Xbox Gamertag (if provided) is displayed in the forum and also in all of the content that you submit. This could provide more friends for your Xbox profile who share your XNA interest and then you'll be able to play some games or do other stuff together.
