Hello! I'm Kevin. It's Nice To Meet You!

By Kevin on Oct 12 2011 11:25 PM
Some of us have been together online, since the inception of NintendoNerds, for around four whole years. In case you guys haven't noticed, our community is slowly shifting toward a more well-rounded sanctuary. By well-rounded, we're not just a "forums" community any more or a "Flash" arcade. We've have much more to offer than just that:

Gallery - where members can add, manage, and create their very own image galleries

Video System - where members can add, manage, and create their own videos

Community Forums - although never been one of our strong points, many of us are still together and enjoy posting when we can

Battle Arena - Members will be able to kick each others butts in a simple, easy-to-use battle environment. You'll gain levels by getting experience, Coins (gold) and also be able to purchase items, weapons, and other cool things. Oh, we'll have battle contests, too!

and, of course...

...a brand new site, that's only going to get better in time. Ah, yes...the "site." Yeah, I've been talking about this for quite some time now and it's finally taking shape. Little by little, hour by hour, and day by day it's becoming more and more what I've always envisioned.

The "site," effective immediately, will be my primary appointed place of duty. I still reload the forums page throughout the day, but not nearly as often as I do for the pages on the site. For the past few weeks, I've been working my tail off to get us a functional site that will host all of our gaming information needs. That might sound a bit broad because, well, it just is. Once I finally get all the sections in order and tailored to my liking, it's game on for content. Members will be able to submit their own news, their own reviews, their own cheats, and their own whatever else I think of after that.

The forums, as we know it, will no longer host things like news, reviews, cheats or any other type of large categorized section for gaming information. Hosting things like that within topics are a thing of the past. It's cheap, unappealing, and hard as hell to find stuff. There are many different applications out there now that allow admins to implement this type of thing into their communities; seamlessly and fully-integrated. All this might sound like a lot of extra stuff, even overkill but I can assure you it'll flourish in time and you won't be disappointed with the outcome.

You might be asking yourself "what's the point? I can just go to another website and find information." While this is true, our site will eventually become bigger, better, and offer more features than many other sites out there.

Oh yeah, the title of this topic...right? I've been known as NintendoNerds for a long time now but I always thought it was odd to have the same user name as the site. This isn't just my site, it's all of ours. From now on, my user name will be "Kevin" but you're more than welcome to call me whatever you want.

If anyone has any questions please feel free to ask.

Does this mean I get to be an admin?

I think its a security thing some people like to use screen names rather then there real names and stuff incase a bad person finds out about you and steals info or hacks your computer.

Uhh...what?
um I was just guessing why people don't use there real names on forums. :tomato:
I guess I just don't understand what relevance your other comment had, to the topic at hand.
I was refering to the fact that you changed your name to Kevin your real name im assuming?? after being NintendoNerds your screen name for so long. Uh I guess if im getting you confused Ill just shut up on the matter.

Yeah, that's my real name. So...you're saying that, by using my real name, it's posing a security issue?
Well I for one will remain count. :D

Some people think that by posting their real names online that it opens them up for scams. I personally dont see the big deal in it but I have been count for so long that it is just my name online. I even use it for my video games now. My Zelda game all refer to me as count.

I do the same thing, usually on my second way through and I do not want to erase my first save.
