60+ members. Not bad.

I've done plenty of updates. Including caching the site, so it now runs much faster.

If anyone knows me, then they know I'm constantly into different projects. I've learned what works on the internet, and what doesn't. I have also created some social networks in the past.

My idea.. build a social network themed to abandonware, and freeware. Members can post what games they are playing, where to download, etc. On the freeware side, developers could register and interact with our members (which already happens on Reloaded.org)

And unlike AB and AR.. I wouldn't overload the site with obnoxious advertisements. Though if Abovo/Studentis wanted to work with me, I'd think it over.

Even though I just started college, I want to do SOMETHING. Plus I want to setup a few painless Google ads to make a little cash. But main reason for this: I see how the internet is evolving. Forums are great, but social networks with forums allow for more flexibility, and a better social experience.

This would NOT replace AB or AR. We will NOT host game reviews. Instead, our games section would link to AB, and AR. Instead.. we are just about the community.

I'm looking for thoughts, and partners on this. I'll need logos, name suggestions, and other things like that. It's sort of.. building a social network by abandonware & freeware fans, for abandonware & freeware fans.

So tell me what you think. Nay or yay? I have nothing to lose except freetime.
I haven't read much of what has transpired so far so pardon me. I do have some ideas for a logo you could use; a picture that captures the spirit of those who play abandoned games--and I feel that a good logo for this would be Guybrush sword fighting LeCuck . I don't know about you but I feel that it captures the adventurous, daring spirit of those who play abandoned games in a society consumed with "modern" noxious, horrid-looking 3D games.

What do you all think?

EDIT: Here are the options I've come up with so far for a background for the bar at the top of the website...

A. http://files.g4tv.com/ImageDb3/24108...y-island-2.jpg


B. http://bulk.destructoid.com/ul/11359...hting-468x.jpg

Without, of course, the green-lettered insults.

If you want I can add the project under our AB Network , or do you prefer to wait for a non-beta version?

Sorry for the late reply, that would be FANTASTIC Dave. Thank you

In fact.. we're now out of beta in 5..4..3..2..1..


Announcement:

After a few months of abandonment, Retrolife has been overhauled. We're now out of beta, and running version 1.0!

On the inside, RL has been upgraded to a more stable version of Elgg. Less errors and bugs.

On the outside, presenting the much improved (and very sleek) homepage. The theme all around the site has been overhauled, sporting new darker colors, faster menus, and a new shoutbox style with speech bubbles.

More updates on the way

http://retrolife.isgreat.org/rl/
http://retrolife.tk/

I have a big announcement planned in the coming weeks.. RL is about to jump from being just a social network.. to much more. Stay tuned.

You mustn't say that there are less bugs now, you just say that there are exciting new features, and you don't say a word about its ever having bugs. :P

Thanks Dave That link is perfect, since it redirects no matter where I host the site.

Announcement:

Hello everyone. Retrolife has been shutdown. I'm currently in the process of launching a new forum, that will be a general forum. For all gamers, movie fans, roleplayers, and more. It will be a fork of Reloaded, and Reloaded's main roleplay will be continuing on the new forum.

Retrolife will live on in the form of Freeware and Abandonware subforums on the new site.

For now, the Retrolife domain links nowhere, but soon it will redirect to the new site.

Hope to see you on the new forum, it launches soon!
