And more importantly give game/mod developers a place to share their work and grow their fanbase - without being dependent on press/editors gatekeeping the important news sites. If you have any ideas or suggestions, hit me up I am always available to talk with the community.

Just backed this on kickstarter... is there any reason you link to your demo on a crappy filesharing site instead of here?

We have been disconnected for over 2 years now - so the features will be very different.

If we could monetize without ads, I'd turn off ads instantly - so I need to figure that one out. The site costs a lot to run because we do over 2000mbps of bandwidth!

There were minor changes to the CSS and the way the system parses the HTML you write.

If you include a <p> tag it will not do any processing on it, as this matches the code the new editor provides. But if there is none it will process it.

The new editor is truely WYSIWYG so if you edit within it, it should exactly mirror what you see in your news post. If there are bugs however please point them out and I will fix them as there have been a number of tweaks I have had to make

Awesome, very cool. At this stage it might be too late to get it together for E3 - but we'd happily feature any video you make here and should chat around MOTY time!

Sorry I should clarify that a trailer or announcement is what we are after. The mod can already be released or upcoming it needn't be a secret.

And agreed that a montage would be amazing... hard to pull together!

I really enjoy your writing style, I was serious about you doing guest pieces for the site ;)

As to your post, it's funny because paid mods have been on the table for a while. Valve has been doing it in their own games, and Epic have stated the next Unreal Tournament will be funded by user-made mods Moddb.com (oddly missed throughout this discussion).

I think however the key point you state is the lack of competition everywhere in the digital world. In the good old days business had to be local, so no game shop owned the world, tons of places printed your photos and anyone could come along and compete. But in the digital world I don't want to join a network unless my friends are on it and they have all the content I desire. I don't want to change phone because I loose all my apps and sync'd information. It basically becomes impossible to compete since nothing is localised and one company has an insane amount of power and influence. While these companies strive to do well by their customers there will be times where this power is abused or directed wrongly. We've kind brought this on ourselves by refusing to give others a go and I cannot see that changing anytime soon
