An FG Update in Isolation - What did we say we'd do again?

Recommended Posts

Admin

Its been a while since I did an FG update. So bear with (with who? where is he! I can't see it!? ffs, Lee)

 

I'm sure everyone's days are blending into one these days. 2020 has been one of those years for the history books and we could've said that in March, let alone December which is still just over 5 months away. Isolation has been a double-edged sword in some respect; its been great to see so many chances to spend more time with your immediate family at home but what comes with permanent home comforts is the lethargic lack of routine, loneliness, depression, anxiety which we've also seen impact so many of us. I imagine you all can relate to some degree?

 

For a week or two I've wanted to write something but I've hesitated because I know I have to be ready to 'Walk the Walk' not just 'Talk the Talk' when I really want to make the most of this place for everyone and makes sense to pick up the things we've talked about over the past few years. Who knows if i'm ready, but i'm willing to give it my best shot and there's no better time to dust ourselves off in the midst of some soul searching in isolation. It'd be ace to start creating some of that Legacy i talked about in the article I did back in January.

 

I think the best way to keep everyone in the loop is being open and letting you know a few pressing items I want to see progress with over the coming weeks and months - and I would love to get as many of you involved which I'm working on ways to get to that. Please keep reading!

 

  • Merchandise Shop - this requires me to purchase and install a whole new section for FG which i'm hoping you'll all enjoy
  • FG Points/Gamerscore - A way to have a meaningful way that gives everyone here an added bonus for being around FG where possible
    • Creating new sections
      • New entire page spaces for games - we can make as many as we'd like providing we can maintain support
      • New homepage - to remind everyone of everything we do. We aren't just a Forum any more, we are far more awesome than that
    • Expanding existing areas
      • Guides & Tips section - the fairly new section needs some love and there's some amazing people here that do great info tips for you all that can easily get lost
    • Re-engaging with old FGers - life's too short to miss everyone and its great seeing so many faces come back, lets do things to get other ones back too. For me its the case of, Why Not, you have nothing to lose seeing old faces and friends.
    • Open our doors to new FGers - we should make more people aware of what we do best - they can have a home here and we can all help them in whatever problems they have. The PPR section just shows how much we have all done to help each other and long may that continue.
    • Regular gaming nights schedule - to help people to keep themselves free, get involved and most importantly make sure the right game is updated and downloaded!
    • Finding more ways to help others
      • Picking up and driving some real charity fundraisers starting with charity streams
      • Try to get a regular pattern on sending out Feel Good Fund parcels to caring FGers

     

    I'd hope you all agree whilst there's more we can always find to do, most importantly this is a ton to look forward to as a group/family.

     

    Other posts to follow but if you have any burning thoughts please shout up below - a poll will go alongside this post to ask absolutely anyone here if they want to get involved in any specific stuff in the coming weeks and months.

     

    Thank you for the last few months everyone; here's to having a better second half to 2020 for all of us 👊😎

    Started to make some progress with a few of these ideas but I've been hampered by my internet being nuked since last week which is frustrating to say the least. Hopefully it'll be back up at some point this week and I can give more meaningful updates for all of you.
