This might be of interest to you, gaming-history-nerds
 
I've built a website that I'm quite proud of, honestly, but feel that is not getting enough exposure.
The site in question is retro-gaming-culture.info.
I know that DOS-related sites are a bit neglected, the reason for that is that I rarely surf sites related to old dos games; more often than not, sega and nintendo consoles - tough most of my childhood I had played mostly on a PC.
So, any suggestion, guys? A lot is going on here in this forum so I guess I will get some feedback, and hopefully, some links! If you feel like, do add them through the button on the right side of my site.

not bad, i like how quickly you submit a link. but aren't you afraid of bots?

Not necessarily, as I try to cover a broader range of topics - not only reviews and downloads, actually, mostly other kinds of sites.

After submitting the link is sent to me and then I decide whether it ends up on the site or not. A few bots have tried but I don't have a pharmaceutical category for their submissions ;)

Nice, maybe a bit more of graphics wouldn't hurt, just to make it more appealing. Usually those kind of sites have rates, a place for comments, a way to sort links using preferences (last updated, number of games...). Just my 2 cents.

Thank you for listing AB, have you planned to create a picture for affiliates?
We could add it to our main page once ready. :)

I've just added a page to my site with the info and banner to be linked to. Thanks a lot!

I wanted to do things a bit easier for myself and a bit differently. That's why I have so many different kinds of sites - which due to their differences could be impossible to coherently rate. Right now I'm thinking about where my site is heading, I'm not sure how to expand next. But I will be spicing things up graphically a bit in the future.

Not yeet, I will get back to you once I have those two set up. Thanks a lot for the offer. I will PM you in the nearest future.

Check our main page :OK:
It's big but fits into the table very well, except for the white vertical space that ruins the layout, can you remove it from the pic or prepare another version?
Example: the Underdogs one, it's 120px X 60px, not 120px X 120px.

I didn't notice, it is like that cause it was prepared for another site. I've cut off the transparent bars but kept the width - if that's okay. Here is the new url http://retro-gaming-culture.info/baner_12573.png

Thanks a lot again!

It's perfect now :)

Didn't notice this link:
http://www.oldskool.org
Jim Leonard's website

Surprised mobygames isn't there... you think it's so obvious it doesn't need a link?
