Website Revamps and Contests
posted by Syrsly on 03/30/2012

I have decided to run more contests, but I am doing them a bit differently now. Instead of having people sign up for contests via forms, I am requiring users to participate in discussions within the forums. Our first contest to be run this way is allowing you to win Nexuiz by talking about it.

I am not upgrading the site to Drupal 7 any time soon. It would take way too much effort to convert everything to the new framework. GetLives is just too complex to simply upgrade it. I have way too much custom code in modules and in the theme and even in the system files. The site just isn't going to benefit enough for an upgrade to be worth the effort.

However, I am going to improve the layout soon. I have some ideas for it, and I think the changes will be very noticeable.

Guess it is a good thing I canceled the Nexuiz contest:
