Just a few updates, I have made loads of small, some quite big edits to the template and style of some areas. Iv made the whole top header section merged into one for quick and easy navigation for users Big Grin

If you know about our gaming servers, we have changed the counter strike source mini games server for a 24/7 Garrys Mod build server. Loads of fun, come and join at any time!

I really want to start some competitions and events, prizes will most likely be a game bought for the winner, which will have to be chose from the Steam Store, which I will purchase and give to your account as a gift. I have tried competitions before giving away battlefield heroes gear and battlefund codes which I had collected over time from my magazine subscriptions. No one entered, hopefully more people can sign up to make it worth while Big Grin

The ufrag server 20% off voucher also still stands, and in the next few weeks, maybe months I want to implement a VIP Membership to the community, here you will receive loads of new permissions and features over the forums, plus VIP membership on our game servers!

[Hope me updating my forum showcase thread is ok, I guess its better than making a new thread right?]

Just a few updates. Its been fairly quiet the past few months, There has been some, but not a lot of site downtime, due to my web host having problems, which were solved very quickly, and then, my hosts servers were updated/moved and improved.

The next thing is we currently have no game servers. My previous sponsor has sadly had to close down, although the website is still up, the have stopped the game servers and control panel. I have been sending out application forms to other companies and I think I have been successful getting a new sponsor who are going to finalise things with me sometime this week as they are going though major server updates and improvements too.

Next, about 3 or 4 months ago, my web host had to close down, and my friend managed to host Community Gamer for a few months, and then when my host came back, both my friend and my host helped me move back and get up and running, which I thanked them for. However, although being back, there is no radio hosting as of yet, but it is being worked on, and I hope to be up sometime this week, or by the end of the month. *Crosses fingers*

As for the website, I have still been making changes and improves day by day, trying to provide as much gaming news as I possibly can. The RSS feed poster plugin has came in handy providing external blog snippets and news for members to read. I think I may need to get some of my mates to help me post gaming news. It is becoming a bit much to post them myself. Plus I can admit, my typing and content skills are not top notch.

As for activity on the site, I am still having to be constantly advertising and asking for people to help me spread the word. I have been very busy at college, where a few weeks ago passed my final assessment rig, where by now I have a diploma and NVQ lvl2 Qualification for site carpentry. So now, I am looking for jobs and sending out cover letters like confetti.

Maybe an odd combination for someone running a gaming community? I think so too but hey! Its what I enjoy doing :]


So anyway, if you like gaming, tech, or just somewhere to chat, sign up to http://www.cgamer.co.uk and join in. Game servers will hopefully be up soon, and I will be finally setting up the cGamer VIP Membership where you get more forum permissions, game server membership and more! This will be a paid thing, but I am going to start doing loads of competitions giving away memberships and even games if I can find the funds. I just need to see more forum activity!

The forum seems to be great and it looks extremely professional with your theme. It is very good to see that at least some admins don't leave everything as default and they try to customize it. The theme didn't give me the "deja vu" feeling and I think I haven't seen this before. (I have seen many mybb power forums because they are promoted on my forum)

The community dosen't seem to be very active, you need to boost the activity by making contests, giving awards (use LaBrocca's award system), try everything to make them addicted.

The problem is that there are too many gaming forums and 99% of them don't offer anything special, stay off the crowd and make some cool features because these will attract you users.

I'm not a gamer (because I don't have time for games) so I will won't join but I hope you success with your forum.

Thank you for a very honest and productive review of my forums! Big Grin

I do know there is little activity at the moment. I am finally on the way to getting an internet radio station BACK online. We also now have two game servers by our new sponsor http://www.lazeryattack.com and one of the servers I am going to be recruiting admins. I have also finished setting up packages to 'sponsor' in a sence clans, groups or teams so they can make their own website. Full cpanel 11 access and more!

As for my theme, In the footer believe it or not, it is a theme called Silent Wave which you can find HERE. I have just spent a huge amount of time editing and adding features. I also completely remade all the table TD repeat images. The theme looks nothing like the original, but I leave the creators copyright in there because I did not start off from scratch, even though I have probably changed every theme template Tongue

As for anyone who does enjoy gaming, sign up! Big Grin

Thanks again for your comments Nagyma! +Rep to you ;D

Maybe, I forgot to say however, I need to set up an application form, there will only be a few questions to answer, and you will obviously have to sign up to the forums, be in the cGamer steam group and post in the forums Big Grin

I will try get an app form up tonight, if not at the weekend.
