[QUOTE="Omar, post: 6378807]when there are hundreds of channels 10 folds better than the one PSU made, there's no reason to keep making it.
again, the only way i believe we could be unique is if we didn't just try to replicate others (which we did), instead be more community oriented. maybe talk about the design corner? why the $#@! not? talk about what changes are coming or what's going on with PSU. there are tons of idea. instead we decided to do regular news...BORING.
EDIT: same with the podcast, i'm sure it's ok, but why should i listen to it when the people in it aren't personable? i don't know you, why should i care about your podcast? OH HEY, here's an idea! Why don't you promote your podcast in the game-related forums? hell, even post it in the off-topic, make an official thread and keep us coming back to it.
no, no one is going to a dedicated section just to see if there's anything new.[/QUOTE]
PSU lacks that personality awareness from the cotent team unfortunately. We have tried for years to enthuse the writing team to be more involved in the community but because they didn't come from it, they don't really care about it. That's harsh to say but the proof is in the actions...or inaction.
The idea of the writing section was to help develop interested community members into writers who would then start contributing to the main page. As they were first and foremost members of the community, there would be a lot more interest from this side to the news page. I know that such people would probably never write for the main page, but it would be so crazy and cool to see articles by personalities like Lethal, F34R, Omar and other long time members. The only way that content team will intergrate with the forums is by some mandate by Steven (which will never happen lol) or by nurturing, training and promoting the community to the front page team.
There is a lot of potential for this site...with PS4#s streaming ability and things like Playroom AR studio, we could really build up a cool culture here at PSU of being our own voice and building up a gaming community that games together. discusses together and shares together. It's still a dream I have and won't let it go...have just had stuff to take care of IRL.
