Ahh the weekend. Every time my work week ends, I know two things are coming. First, the forums die. That’s right, when I’m finally free to talk, everyone leaves and has fun elsewhere! Second, we have a Council Update for you. Those of you with eyes may have noticed some changes popping up on the frontpage. There have been quite a few lately.
1) The ‘Rules’ and ‘Downloads’ tabs have been combined so that all rules documents can be found in one spot now.
2) We’ve made a new tab called ‘Formats’ that contains all currently recognized tournament formats. Notice that this tab has been updated with the Council’s decision to move Marvel Evolutions to Golden Age, and all Council suggested bans and erratas.
3) The ‘About This Site’ tab has been modified to include a directory of all Administrators, Moderators, and Council Members. Because some of these are not permanent positions, we figured it would be nice to have an updated listing on the frontpage.
4) We’ve added Vssystemonline.org to the ‘Site Links’ in the right column near the Forum link. We need to make sure that all new players can find this site as quickly as possible.
5) Finally (the thing we’re most excited about), we’ve added a ‘Player Locator’ tab to the frontpage. PLEASE head there now and add your information. This tab will help players find other players and hobby leagues near them. If you play Vs. at a store, please include the store’s information as well. This tab was just added, so there aren’t many people “located” yet. Help us fill the map with pins!
I (scottkthompson) will also use this opportunity to plug the archiving project going on over at Vscorps.wordpress.com. I’ve been going through old Metagame.com articles and copy-and-pasting them over to Vs. Corps. Many of the articles appear to be lost for good, but some of them can be salvaged. If anyone has access to more content that should be saved (including the missing Metagame articles), let me know. Also, if your blog has been left unattended for some time and you want the content added to the archive, I can make that happen. It would be nice to collect all old Vs. content in one location BEFORE Google looses all traces of it. And don’t worry about the terrible paint-created banner at Vs. Corps. Once this project really gets off the ground, we’ll have someone with Photoshop skills create a banner more befitting our archive (KardKrazy, I’m looking your way!).
Let us know what other changes you guys would like to see on this site. As always, our PM boxes are open!
