More Steam Contests Planned

I have a small collection of game gifts on my Steam account, and I am saving some of the gifts for contests later in the year. Ultimately, we will have more contests coming, but I do not want to run any more contests until the forum post count is over 9000 1400. We are at 1204 right now, so we are well on our way.

Layout Upgraded

GL has been upgraded to a new layout, and with the extensive remodeling, I have thrown in some extra features and minor changes. Below is a guide to all that is new.

And the winner is...

GL's first contest had a surprisingly disappointing turnout. Sad There were many hit-and-run entries, and most users did not provide a Steam username! There were only three valid entries, so the prize had to go to Kaustos, Knox, or saxoraros.

So the winner is... Knox!

Removal of PlayStation Forum

The PlayStation forum has been deleted. All 3 of its topics have been moved to the main Games forum. I also made a small change to the Contests page to include the entire date range of each contest, not just the month they started.

Review Updates

I'm going through old reviews and updating their scores if I feel I need to. The first review to be changed is our latest one, Two Worlds II, because I discovered many shortcomings in the game. Instead of a 4/5, I gave it a 3/5.

New Section: Contests

I added a new section to the site: Contests.

The first contest to get us started is Win a Random Steam Game Up to $20!

Latest Reviews

I just wanted everyone to know about the new "Latest Reviews" block at the top of the GL Portal and the front page. It will list the 3 newest reviews. Any review without a game cover will get a "cover is missing" image instead.

Site Slowdown

The site has a very slow load time right now. I'm not sure why, and it is very annoying, but it should clear up eventually. Anyway, I want to move to a different server in the next couple months. I am already making a list of possible hosts to move to.

In less than a week, I will have some break time from school, and I plan to use that free time to work on a new Flash game.

Upgrade Achieved!

GL has new features! I took the liberty of adding an achievements subsystem to the profiles. Now, every user has a score, similar to the gamerscore of Xbox Live and Games for Windows Live. You can view any user's score and achievements straight from their profile pages.
