Hi peeps, We are looking at how we can improve everyone’s experience in the crew and we feel that we have outgrown our current web presence and it just isn’t adequate for our needs anymore.
This current site is a free blog provided by wordpress, which is completely free of charge so we cant complain too about it but it has served its purpose.
I have been considering our options and decided to get a domain (a www.) that we own and host ourselves. This means we will be able to do more cool things for the crew then we can currently, such as:
No ads cramping our style
Can put a stop to crappy companies appearing on our posts
Have a better navigation function on the website
So its easier and quicker to find what you want.
Live user and crew stats integrated into the website*
Crew user data fed into the website via a custom API script , so crew leader boards, 10 top ten lists for this and that, plus user stats on profiles (*=maybe, depending on what the R* will allow us to do)
Integrate a forum into the our website
This will mean posts, notifications, questions will not be lost like they currently do on the R* site and our current blog site. At the mo stuff is buried way too easily.
More structure on the website
To allow us to focus the crew on events, competitions, tournaments with a dedicated homepage has all planned events on.
Higher search engine standing
Which would give us greater coverage on the internet and allow potential new members to find us easier.
Greater customisation and a custom wordpress theme
Which allows us to adjust, modify, update all aspects of the website going forward.
No limit on youtube videos posted on the blog
Currently we can only link in a certain amount of videos which sucks primo style.
No limit on our media uploads
Although we have only used up a small % of our allotted space there is a caped limit, hosting our selves means no limit.
Personal pussi riot email addresses
Another bonus of having no limit on shit allows us to have mailboxes so we can each have an official pussi riot email address like firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com! I think this is real cool and unique but I may have completely misjudged it. Let me know below
What you guys think… is this a good idea?
