Digg! Digg damn you!

32x32-digg-guyThank you to all the people who are voting for us on Digg, but we need more votes. Within 24hrs, we’ve had nearly 2,000 downloads, but less than fifty Diggs, that means only one in forty is voting. It’s even less on Reddit and SlashDot! As I write this, Robert is in tears and threatening to do evil things to kittens and puppies.

The more votes we get on Digg/Reddit/Slashdot, the more exposure we can get for Full Circle magazine. The more exposure we get, the more new readers, and possibly converts, we get. So come on people, vote! VOTE!

So, no excuses, here’s the links:

PREVIEW: Full Circle Magazine, HTML Edition

Many thanks and kudos to Robin Catling who put together this Full Circle Magazine HTML preview.

The HTML edition should work in all major browsers (Firefox/Gecko-based, Konqueror/WebKit-based) and will most likely work in IE7, but we aren’t making any guarantees.

The preview is of Issue 12, so come take a look!

Bye bye podcast

Unfortunately, due to real life intervention, Matthew no longer has the time to devote to the Full Circle Podcast, so the podcast is now discontinued.

Things continue on, as ever, with the magazine and #13 is going through it’s second round of proof-reading, for release on Friday 30th May.

Also, Rob will be changing the look of the site soon with a nice, uncluttered, white theme.

We wish Matthew all the best with his real-life stuff.

As I always like to say: ‘real-life… it’s highly over-rated’ :)

Full Circle Gameathon!

So here’s the plan:

  • I post Ronnie’s idea and take all the credit for it :D
  • You guys come up with a selection of free and open source online games that we could play.
  • After a week or so, or after we have enough ideas, I’ll post again (on our forum) with a poll so we can vote for a game.
  • Once we have decided on a game, we’ll find a victim kind person to host a Full Circle tournament, then come up with some rules.
  • We’ll set up a leaderboard, and we can compete for the title of “Full Circle Gamer of the Month” (or a better title if you can come up with one).
  • The person that is leading at the time of the magazines release will be crowned with the monthly title we decide on.
  • At the end of the year, the person that has won the most months will get “Full Circle Gamer of the Year”!

We may also rotate the game each month, or every couple of months, depending on how it goes. If we do this we’ll create a new poll so a new Game can be decided on.

Put your game idea on this post here on our forum… 

Let the games BEGIN!  :D
