The staff has been discussing this event for quite a while. We had originally planned this to take place earlier but the delayed Please login or register to view this link. announcement led us to delay the announcement of this event.
We've always said that the members are what make up ShadyGamer. The community on ShadyGamer is what keeps ShadyGamer ahead of everyone else. The community in essence becomes the heart of ShadyGamer. The community members then becoming a vital part to the success of ShadyGamer. We decided it was only fair that the community itself decides the future of ShadyGamer. With this event you have the chance to shape ShadyGamer the way you want it to look. The forum structure is what makes sure members and guests can get to the thread that they are looking for. Therefore the forum structure is a very vital part of user direction.
The event is a little complicated, but we made sure that any member of the community could participate in the event easily. This event consists of you revamping part of the forum structure (ie A section) or the whole forum structure. You can re-structure one section, for example the Entertainment / Downloads section. You can also re-structure the whole forum list from top to bottom. Do what you will with it, if we find it creative we will either use your whole structure or parts of it. Whatever we do use from your creative designs, full credit will be given.
Some things we are interested in seeing and some suggestions to start you off.
We have various other suggestions and things we'd like to see, but we have purposely avoided from revealing them. This event is suppose to be for you to have "no limits." By listing what we want to see, we are limiting you from your imagination and creativity. The suggestions above are things that we find would be a little interesting. But this whole event is made for you to show us something that we haven't thought about before, something unique, something creative, something that's reasonable.
