I have been working on a site for an all-adventure community. This site is mainly for finding downloads and archiving great software and all software in general related to Adventure Games. But its biggest feature is the social aspect of it and the development aspect of it. The site is a great portal for finding resources that will help in your game development and a great resource for finding the latest news and stuff. The site is a work in progress. But I need your help. I need you to check out the site and tell me what you think of it, what you would like to see/ what improvements I need to make and what would have you all keep coming to the site as a main Adventure resource site.

For now let me tell you the main features it has:

General site features:
You can translate the site into several languages.
You can bookmark the site to Google, yahoo, twitter, etc...
You can search the site.
Awards and Hall of Fame. HOF coming soon.

Social features:

Profile/Profile Searching:

You can see your awards.
You can add what games your working on.
You can put in contact info.
You can tell us what your 10 favorite games are.
You can specify what skills you have and to what degree you can use them.
You can specify what languages you speak.
You can upload personal files.
You can have a user gallery showcasing your art work or art and images in general.
You can have a personal guest book for yourself.


AND THERE WILL BE MORE AS I GO.

A note about "Project Starter/Personal Projects". This is a great tool. You can create a project (Game, or Engine or whatever, as long as its adventure related). You can add users and give them permissions and access levels. Your project can have news and task assignments and a calendar. You also have a private forum just for your project members and more. Everything stays private or public depending on your settings. You can also upload your files. I feel that this is a great way to get Teams working and organized on projects.

What I will need from you:
I need input and suggestions. If I can have board moderators and even site administrators, that would help immensely. If you have resources, games, tutorials, artwork... ANYTHING that you can upload to the site, that would help content-wise. Bug-testing would also be a big help. Eventually Donations for server costs would be helpful as well. If you want to host specific sites for specific projects, such as RON or anything, that would also help with content and visitors. Also promote the site where you can.


Future items:
Shop
Hall of Fame
Adventure Top Sites
Anything you can think of.

Thanks all for listening and for your help. The site is http://www.adventurestockpile.com .
