Haha :) ! You did put my quote in your sig. You might want to remove the "You" from "you should be the change you want to see in the world" though.

Maybe people will stop asking about your spelling (or lack of) now

As Perfection 2.0 went so well i decided that it's time to make Perfection True3.
I hope that this will be ready for november.

For the new people who don't know, Perfection # is when Origin raises it's standards to a new level.


The bulk of this will be for the front page:
* New Layout - I'm thinking orange and white ;)2
* New Forum Skin - To match the site and output.
* Output - A new distrabution center for creative things produced by the network (for things without a site).
* Creative Show - The end of summer show.


For Projects:
* Released Mods - It would be great to have Defcon and Reloaded released together (with the below) for max advertising.
* Compertition Ladders - With the money from Google mods can hold compertition ladders for people to win money with.
* Loads New Hosted - Not realy perfection, but more would be nice.
* Ads - Hosted Projects which use over 2gig of bandwidth will require ads. This means there is effectivly 'unlimited bandwidth'.


Network Sites:
* Ads - All network sites will have Google ads to fund network projects.
* Central - Could all hosted projects please give Central exclucive interviews, reviews and previews of your mods.
* Project-Link - Will be closing.


Remote plans:
* Domains - Domain names for all finished projects and project#.game-mods.net for all others.
* New uber modding site.


When all this comes together it will be great :)

I would like everyone to add an idea or comment to this topic. If only to show that you support it. The more intresting things we can add to this at once, the better for advertising.

Daz, Currently no projects are using over 2gig of bandwidth, so none have to use ads.


MagicGangsta, The interviews are for Command & Conquer Central, so it would look odd having and with you ;)2

Okay.
I'm assuming they'll be the Google ads that can go in a nice corner or side of the page and not horrible pop up ones.

(trying to ask questions to save other people doign so)

EDIT: can i suggest Detail needs a spell checker?  :p


For possibly the thousandth time, Detail is dyslexic. I'm thinking you should put that in your sig, D :rolo: :) .

Sounds good to me. Maybe you should put Reloaded on the main forum, and give it sub forums like Defcon has. That way everything will be right there.

As for Defcon's completion, it should be almost 100% ready to go once we get new buildings. I was considering asking The Finest Hour team if they'd like to do a a little trade for them to do buildings for us.... I can model or skin, and Technobreakit can make excellent cameos (I should probably check with him before I start selling his skills though). But I'm not sure we'd need this deal yet. Just so its on the table I figured I'd mention it.

*Clicks + on MagicGangsta*
:)


MagicGangsta, the ads are page specific. If you look at http://forums.origin...p?showtopic=875 which is juts a load of HL2 links, Google Ad has placed a 'buy HL2 for amazon' ad. If a page has enough specific words (like "Horror", "Survival", "Evil") it will get an ad for it.

I'm not sure why there are so many "Exchange Tools" ads though :so:


Daz, Google is possable the most trussted thing on the internet, so thay don't have pop-ups. There are 4 sizes: Banner (like forum), Skyscraper (front page and OM), Box (4 wide ads in a line down) and Wide (like banner, but with 4 instead of 2, also a little bit taller).


Agile, Move Reloaded has not been an option since the boards where split. I'm trying to keep this 'solid rock' look for Origin.

Perfection True3 is planned for the start of november, so you have 3 weeks to polish Defcon.

Seeings as how the e-mail seemed a bit nasty about posting here, I might as well do that, even though Detail already knows about my ongoing shhhneeky :) discussions with Defcon and Finest Hour and such.

Well, when it comes to writing an expository essay about counter-insurgent tactics, I'm of the old school. First you tell them how you're going to kill them. Then you kill them. Then you tell them how you just killed them.

When Defcon will be released? I have quriosity... :rolo:
My mod could be finished at the end of october (if I haven't problems :) )

About the rest of things of the list, only I can say that is a nice "list" of upgrades :)

C&C:Reloaded -> 5 different armies: GDI, Nod, Allies, Soviets & Yuri... & converted TS Terrain!!

Defcon's release depends on a lot of things. Mainly the buildings and polishing of code, but if nothing goes extremely wrong it'll be out in November, I can rush and spend hours on the computer daily if I need to though

I'll do Ini's if you need, and the cooperation with Finest Hour should help.

Network Sites:
* Ads - All network sites will have Google ads to fund network projects.

I think this is kind of stupid to be honest.. I got hosted here because I HATE HATE HAAATTEEEE ads and they throw off my site. If this is the case I will go back to my own webspace, Sorry but ads are the evil of the net, its up there with spam.

You're not a network site, you're a project. Just don't get too popular...

Ads are needed to support the network. Detail is running this out of his pocket, you can't excpect him to just lose money all the time.

yeah, you don't need the ads, unless you use more than 2gb of bandwidth per month. Most of the hosted sites are doing this, as a way to support the hosting that we get here.

oy, I have no Idea where this google ad would fit on my site, unless they came out with a special google bar for the bottom of my page (like the origin bar, but erm... on the bottom)

i've been working on the content of the site right now, so I won't be able to do interviews just yet. And I've also been extremely busy, being 14 and not getting home til 6 (then having to do homework - damn those honors classes) and not being "allowed" on-line til about 8, it makes it kinda hard. However football season is almost over so I should be able to test mods much easier now (and much more through)

Hmm all the changes your planning on doing are okay, but I think origin network looks and is pretty damn good already.

But if you reckon they'll make the site even better, then lets do it. :)

But i agree on the interview thing, cus theres nothing worse than downloading a mod and not really knowing much about it, esecially if you got a crap 56k.

GaintSura, These ads will pay for your HLZero 24/7 mulit-player server ;)2


Ultimar235, Perfection 2.0 made the Origin you see now. Perfection True3 will do the same thing, but with mod quility :)

I'd like to have the ads anyway on the Project Hawk site. As quiet as it is you never know if it might make a tiny bit more cash for this place.
Detail, can you supply some help in suggesting where the ads could go to least throw of the layout and how i'd code a box for 'em.
