Mylocal gaming group, G3, has been on the go for over 10 years now, and they have entrusted me with getting our name out there so that people can come along and get on board with the fun.
I started a board on the ivision free service about 10 months ago, and whilst its been used its never been as popular as I would have liked, never quite gaining the traction it should have, with less than 50% of the membership using it.
I have started building a fully fledged site in PHP, leveraging several existing technologies, but its going to be end of february/march before that is ready for prime time. Im kinda rusty with these sort of things :).
Moving to a paid-for host and URL should be the bump that is needed for G3, pushing us over that next hill in terms of membership.
Our email will also be an @ g3gamers address, meaning gmail cant just arbitrarily delete our account again.
Join us on the forums here, fellow bloggers are especially invited, even if you will never get to g3 in person.
