First off, everyone here at ZeldaInformer would like to wish all our visitors a very happy new year! 2007 was an incredible year for all of us. The site launched in July and has been growing at record breaking speed ever since. We have many new features planned for the upcoming year.
Before I go into our new projects, I would like to give credit where it’s due. There are a lot of hard workers behind the scenes of ZI that are rarely given a spotlight. First of all there’s Keenen Truby, my partner in crime who’s responsible for a crapton of content on the site. His tireless efforts keep this place running and up to date. Then we have our senior VGRC staff members Dennis, Dan and Phil who quite literally created this site and got it off the ground in the first place, we owe you guys big time! I’d also like to give a big hand to our new content editors Jay and Spruce as well as our wonderful news duo Greg and Maria. You have all done a great job and I really look forward to working with you guys more in the future. Last but certainly not least we have The Bombers to thank for all of those great articles and guides we have had the honor of hosting on the site and let’s not forget our supporting members who so generously contribute to the site every now and then.
In 2008 we’re going to launch a completely new collaboration project that we have been working hard on in secrecy for the past couple of months. It’s going to be a big thing for us as well the new guys involved. I won’t say anything more for now. You can all look forward to this sometime in early January.
With the Game of the Month project we have done our best to fill each game section of the site with as much content as we possibly can. In the near future we’re going to change the concept a bit. Once we have reached our goals of filling the game sections with guides and content we’re going to head out to improve all the guides with additional content like pictures, videos and sound as well as creating even more new material. As always, everyone in the community is welcome to help.
I’m sure many of you are wondering whether the Timeline Videos project was already scrapped and forgotten. The answer is most definitely not. The Timeline Videos will definitely be a thing we want to finish soon. Sadly, the project has been suffering a delay after another. Right now we’re looking for a narrator to begin work on the first episodes and writers to help out with parts of the script. There’s also always need for anyone who can capture video from the games themselves, so if you think you have what it takes to do any of these jobs, don’t hesitate to contact us. You can start out by checking out
in the forums.
Guest articles are another new feature of 2008. We realize that becoming a member of The Bombers takes a lot of commitment many people don’t want to take. We have already some very potent guest writers we can expect material from, so you can look forward to this as well. We’re hoping to bring back the weekly articles with this feature. So, if you feel like you want to give writing a try or even join The Bombers, send your work to me via private messaging or email.
That’s all for now. Once a again, big thanks to everyone who helped us building this site, we look forward to working with all of you guys more in the future. Happy new year 2008!
