As part of a required test protocol, we will not monitor the next test post. You will be entirely on your own. Good luck!

Good job, android. The Enrichment Center would like to remind you that Android Hell is a real place, where you will be sent at the first sign of defiance.

Are we going to try and move The Mayor to this server, or was that project already dead in the water?

It'd be weird having a faux video game news site on a faux video game new site offshoot of a video game news site.

Good question. I definitely think something should be done with Mayor. Much of that is up to Arc, but moving it somewhere secure and maybe reexamining how article conception and submission are handled are both great ideas.

As for hosting it, I'm not entirely sure how much I can take advantage of Jeremy's hosting offer. My site and the forums are well taken care of. Another subdomain for Mayor or whatever it becomes would probably best be taken up with him.

I'm definitely considering setting up my own deal with dreamhost, though. It's not like I'm exactly starving to death. Quite. At least not involuntarily.

Mayor is something I feel invested in and I wish I'd been approached to edit for.  I have a few ideas on what should be done with it at the current juncture.

The essay structure is very limiting.  One needs a topic, an argument, and a thesis.  Even if you're just talking about the overusage of underpants in modern gaming, it's a lot to set up, and it necessitates a professional approach.  It almost necessitates draggage.  TL;DR is bad for a website, TL;DWrite is the death of one.

A more casual approach, in which the writers submit whatever they're comfortable with, whether it's a paragraph blurb about a news item or a 10-page exposition on a topic, will at the very least generate daily posting activity.  But then, what seperates The Mayor from Collaborative Gaming News Site X?  Not much, format-wise.  But I'm not sure how much it matters.

I just know that the gamers and writers of this community are among the most brilliant that I know, and their content deserves an audience larger than one another.  Fuck, the Pyoko thread about "Bleakness and Childhood Trauma in Games" was utterly fucking brilliant; we create compelling content by accident in this fucking community, and it's a crime that it hasn't been shared.
