GameGeex - How to turn into a dominant force in the Video Game Blogging Scene Managing Editor and Site Developer Arthur "Arturis" Orneck hits the Pause button in order to take a moment to thank and instruct all you snazzy Reader-type peoples.

Greetings, dear reader! Thank you for taking a moment out of your busy day to read this humble yet unusual post here on I interrupt our normal stream of video game news because I wanted to let you know how you (yes, you!) can help GameGeex grow and thrive. While we are a young site (it’s been just over a month since launch), we are already experiencing an impressive amount of success, and this can only continue with your help. No, I won’t be asking you for money (though generous donations in unmarked bills never hurt) but instead what I ask of you is participation. What can you do to help GameGeex become a force to be reckoned with? How can you help it stand side by side with the big sites out there? It’s as easy as following four simple steps.

The first, and most obvious, step in the process is visiting the site. If you are reading this, the odds are you’ve gotten this part down pat. Congratulations! But the question is, how often will you return? Our growth is measured in such obscure analytical mumbo-jumbo as "page views" and "ad impressions" and such, so each time you return to the site you contribute to it in a substantial way. Just pretend that every time you open, you are handing someone a free puppy of whatever breed you love most. Doesn’t it feel great to hand out nonexistent puppies? You don’t even have to worry about cleaning up after them or feeding them or anything. How can you beat that?

Secondly, make sure you register by clicking on the [register] link in the upper corner, assuming you haven’t done so already. Once you are registered and signed in, you will be able to post comments and join in the other fun features that are coming to the site just as quickly as I can develop them. Don’t worry; we aren’t reselling your personal information, nor are we asking for anything more sensitive than a username and password. The only reason we require registration for commenting is to keep a lid on random spamming or solicitation in the comments. This means that every comment has accountability, as opposed to other systems that allow anonymous guest posting. It’s a proven fact that internet anonymity can lead to rude and unsavory things, so we are doing what we can to discourage that kind of behavior right from the start. But of course, this doesn’t really apply to you - I can tell you are one of the good ones. And I’m sure you hang around with good folk. Speaking of which, that leads us right into the next step…

…which is spreading the word! The more people who stop by GameGeex and register, the more quickly the site will grow, and the larger the site is the more time I can set aside for developing it to create better and cooler features.  As more features are added, more people will sign up, and the whole process will continue to snowball, and you get to be part of the core of that snowball. I know that sounds a little cold and uncomfortable, so maybe that wasn’t the best analogy. But what I am trying to say is, when they site has grown to be a huge player in the video game blogging scene, you will be able to proudly claim that you’ve been there from the beginning, handing out virtual imaginary puppies to the masses!

Finally, and most importantly, make sure you are having fun. Really, that is the biggest rule around this site. We don’t want the writers posting about anything they aren’t excited about, because we know that will come through in the energy of what they write. In the same way, we want our readers to be enjoying themselves as well, commenting, discussing, debating and all around being the video game geeks that we all are proud to be.

Thank you for taking the time to read this tangential diversion from our regular gaming news and opinion pieces. If you take nothing else away from this post, we here at GameGeex are thankful for your readership. We quite truly could not be doing this without you.

I refuse to register until you start including kittens in your descriptions.

Some of us like cats, Arturis.

......Wow. Apparently when you hit that little "Submit Commet" button up there multiple times, it posts once for each click of the mouse.

Who knew?

I'm actually having that same problem lol.

But anyways, I've already recommended everyone I knew this month and they all came to see!

@MyEvilDucky - I apologize, Im still working the kinks out of the system. I've gone ahead and cleaned out the duplicate comments, and I will modify the comment system to prevent it from happening soon.

Thank you for responding, though! I'll take the auto-dupes as a sign of enthusiasm ^_^
