Welcome the ResetEra April 2018 Newsletter. We are now one month away from E3. As such, we've got two big items to cover this month: a major site update and our E3 plans.
New Site Design Incoming
We dropped some small hints about this in our last newsletter, but we're now pleased to officially announce that the forthcoming ResetEra 1.4 update will include a brand new site design of our own creation. Introducing DayEra and NightEra!
Look forward to more details and the full public release of DayEra and NightEra later in the month of May.
This year we'll be doing things as the community is accustomed to. There will be a Conference and Livesteam Schedule Thread pinned a few days before the event kickoff, reiterating the same points listed here:
- Conference threads will be pinned an hour before the conferences and unlocked fifteen minutes before the conference or the pre-show.
- The conference threads should have at most two images, with a countdown clock, a link to at least one livestream, a link to at least one liveblog, and a list of games known and rumored to be shown.
- Creators for each conference thread will be determined over the coming month. Please do not send any PMs asking to be selected for this.
- GIFs within the first 100 posts of each thread will be deleted. We want people to be able to pull up the first page of the thread on their phones without killing their mobile data.
Mod Team Update
Due to long term availability issues, Rowlf has stepped down from the position of Mod Captain but will remain on the team to assist when he can. Stepping up to assume the important responsibilities as Administrator and Mod Captain is Hecht, a tireless worker with enduring dedication to the community. You may have seen him playing this new role already.
We are confident that between our captains Hecht and Selina, the moderation team will continue to enjoy strong leadership.
In this month of April we also added one new moderator to the team, a member well known for his generous giveaways and passion for horror games. Please give a warm welcome to Dusk Golem!
As always you can view the up to date staff roster here.
During the month of April, we had one Q&ERA. It was with Insomniac Games, who discussed Resistance, Ratchet and Clank, Sunset Overdrive, Spyro and more by answering your submitted questions.
In 1994, Insomniac Games was founded by Ted Price in Burbank, California. The company is responsible for critically acclaimed titles such as Ratchet & Clank, Sunset Overdrive, Resistance, Spyro the Dragon, and Song of the Deep. Insomniac is currently working on "Spider-Man" exclusively for PlayStation 4. As an independent company, Insomniac has released titles for all four PlayStation home consoles, as well as Xbox 360 and Xbox One. In 2015, IGN named Insomniac the 20th best video game developer of all time. In 2017, Fortune listed Insomniac as one of the best workplaces among small/medium organizations.
You can read the full Q&Era in its entirety here.
