    A little project of mine

    I've just finished my A-Levels (last Friday actually). I have decided to take a gap year before I go to university. So I thought I would complete a little project during my gap year: a gaming platform/social network. I will be coding it using Python & Flask. Everything will be custom coded by myself, only the actually HTML and CSS is not mine (I bought a basic template). Just thought I would share a few screenshots of the site while I am working on it. Feel free to share your thoughts and if you have any feedback.

    Hi there,

    Well done with the site. I really like how the design fits with everything, it looks very professional. I also love the phrase "Some unexpected zombies are attacking us...", it's so hilarious. It will be a good challenge to add all the news, cheats etc so I wish to you the best of luck.

    This looks fantastic. I think Minds has a lot of large images in its design, though figuring out a layout can't be an easy task. I like the game banners in the first screenshot. Perhaps they could be "featured games", but on the whole I'm not sure how you'll go about condensing the hundreds (thousands on PC) of games into a more visual platform, unless you want to aim it towards casual gamers who just tend to play the more popular AAA titles.

    I recall past attempts at making gaming a more social platform. I'm pretty sure Raptr tried to do this years ago but when I look at it now it's seemingly changed its approach. A forum of sorts is a must. Also, gamers prefer a more anonymous experience than any other entertainment fan. Perhaps you could have forums for different gaming platforms (maybe ones for sub-genres like indie) and then for each game have something similar to Steam's Community Hub. What Steam lacks is a true social experience, like posting images and videos in a feed for instance.

    Anyhow, they were just a few thoughts of mine. Good luck with it all.

    Edit: I now notice the forum link at the top! Very well then.

    Thank you for the kind words. The zombie text page is our maintenance page, glad you like it, I wanted to try and make it a little funny . Regarding the games on the homepage, those are just featured games that will be randomly selected from the database based on recent popularity. It will always only be 3 games at max, anymore and it would just be ugly on the homepage personally. What I'm trying to do is to create a platform for everything gaming and not go down the social network path too much. Social networks have been dying a bit recently and it's extremely difficult to enter that market nowadays. I'll post some more screenshots soon for you guys

    Just wanted to show you guys the new and updated Elite Players page. The Elite Players program is for users that donate to the site. It's perfect for Twitch streamers who may want their content to be featured on the website at the top of search results. Also wanted to let everyone know that I've had to custom code and develop the forum for the site as it was difficult to connect an external forum software database with my website database. I'm looking at hopefully opening the website to the public sometime around the end of September so full steam ahead for me .

    Coding a forum from scratch, eh? Nice progress. I think the rewards are very reasonable for $15/year.

    My only option unfortunately. My only other option is to have a forum hosted at for example forum.domain.com but it would have to have a seperate database because I can't seem to connect myBB with my site database. I don't want to do that because it may become annoying for people to have to login/register twice for the same site and may decide against joining the forum. It shouldn't be too difficult, I've already setup the forums and last poster information stuff. It will be a basic forum, nothing too fancy of course.

    Thanks

    You sure there aren't any options? http://phpdave.com/MyBBIntegrator/
    This site used to run on MyBB before I switched to vBulletin, but it also had a main WordPress site. Can't remember if it was integrated. I totally agree though. If there's no way at all to do it I wouldn't force people to register twice either. Ever considered hiring a MyBB developer? Some do extensions like this cheap.

    I'll have to look into it, I did post a thread over at the MyBB Community Forums and they did come up with a solution related to a PHP file. Problem is as I am coding with Python, it needs a special host to run it. Right now we are with PythonAnywhere and they do not support PHP files. That would mean the forum would have to be on a different host which might complicate things. I'll have to create a thread over there and see if anyone can do some development work. Definately not going to force people to register twice, it would make it way too annoying
