Happy 2018 everyone! The start of the New Year has been a busy time around here, but we're laying the groundwork for some really awesome things in the future. And of course, with today being February 1st, E3 2018 is only a little over five months away.
We recently upgraded our hosting solution to allow for dynamic allocation of computational resources. This will ensure that we are well prepared for any kind of traffic the website might encounter. (Here’s looking at you, E3.) You can find additional information here.
Mod Team Update:
As our community continues to grow (recently exceeding 35,000 active members!) new moderators are needed to respond to the ever changing landscape. In accordance, we have bolstered our team with five new moderators who we are pleased to introduce now. Please welcome:
We're very excited about the variety of perspectives that these outstanding individuals will bring to the team. As a reminder, you can always find a complete and updated staff roster here.
Earlier this month we introduced advertisements as well as a paid ad removal subscription service. We're blown away by the strength of your support and have been working hard to ensure that the quality of the ads meet the high standards that you deserve. If you wish to support the site but don't want to view ads, Era Clear ad removal is available for $3.99/month or $39.99/year.
We're absolutely delighted by how ResetEra's first annual GOTY awards turned out. We'd like to thank once again the team who sacrificed their time and energy to put this project together, as well as all of you in the community who voted and made your voices heard. You can see the results here. We've also heard your suggestions regarding the system, and it is our intention to innovate and improve next year.
As a notice going forward, while we allowed stickies for generally any "thing of the year" this year, after discussion among the team and feedback from the public, we will be cancelling that policy. The number of stickies very quickly got out of hand.
New Game Releases:
Here are the notable game releases for January. You can find their OTs below.
- Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition
- Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth
- Lost Sphear
- Dragon Ball FighterZ
- Monster Hunter: World
- Dissidia Final Fantasy NT
Due in part to the number of stickies that had been piling up, the Community Spotlight program was temporarily placed on hold in January. With those voting threads ending, we will be resuming the Community Spotlight program in February.
Thread of the Month:
What would happen if you tried to load ResetEra from a Dreamcast browser? Apparently, an epic journey and over 650 posts that may or may not have crashed the site along the way. Check out our thread of the month: Can't access ResetEra from Sega Dreamcast...
