Today it's 8 years since we launched the first incarnation of the QuakeWorld.nu website, and what better way to celebrate, than by launching a brand new version of the site.
As it seems a lot of people aren't gonna read the full post, here is a quick recap.Go here to request a new password.
The main site has been somewhat in development hell for the past 4 years, mainly because I've been busy doing coverage and helping out organizing leagues and tournaments. It also seemed like too big a task to rewrite the site, and noone felt like continuing with the old source.
However, now it's here! After 4 years of planning, it might not seems as much, but more features are underway. We just felt that we wanted to launch as soon as we had everything we had on the old site working.
The goal of the new website is to be both an archive of quake history, while also being able to generate activity in the current scene, we should soon be able to add a tournament system, demo section and an option for running occasional events.
Apart from that, the new site is designed to let everyone contribute content to it, hopefully this will keep me from having to gather/pack/publish content after events.
The new site is not completely without new features, some of the new features include:
- Server browser
- Photo gallery
- Video section
- Redone Configs section (with compare)
- IRC Webchat (Happy now Mushi?)
The user profiles have also gotten quite an overhaul, and it's now possible to upload pictures showcasing your play/spec setup and your quake place.
There is one issue tho, as the login and user system have been rewritten from scratch, all users need to request a new password, this is done by going here
.If you don't have access to the email you registered with anymore, contact me on IRC (#quakeworld). PLEASE DO NOT CREATE A NEW PROFILE!
To follow the further development of the website, visit my first ever blog post
, if you want to report bugs, please do it there as well, but keep the feature requests to a minimum, as my todo is already fairly long.
I hope you will enjoy using the new site!
