I have been making an effort to update the site on a more regular basis and I just wanted to give a quick explanation on how I am organising things. The site has several Categories, and different information is appearing in each.
- News: announcements like this will appear in news, as will more general “blog” type contents that doesn’t fit into one of the below.
- Podcast: whatever the current name or format of the show may be, it will appear here.
- On Our Radar: things that I have noticed on the interwebs, on forums, in magazines or wherever else gossip is spread. These will be things that I have not really dug into, so cannot review. Press releases / announcements from companies will also appear here – but only those that catch my attention and I think are interesting.
- Competitions: if and when I run another competition, it will fall into this category.
- Reviews: products that I have had time to look into with some depth, to read and / or play will be reviewed here. I will not always play a game before reviewing it, but I will make sure I have a pretty good impression of what it is all about. Sometimes these reviews will be cross-posts from ones I have written on DriveThruRPG, or other places.
If you are just coming to the HBG! frontpage, then you may not notice which category an article is in, and that is fine. Hopefully, though, if you are looking for something specific, this will make it easier. It will also make it clear whether I am mentioning something as newsworthy, as something that has caught my eye, or is something I was excited enough about to review.
A quick note about Affiliate Links: next to some hyperlinks you will see (Affiliate link) noted. At this stage, these are only links to DriveThruRPG / RPGnow, but I might have other affiliates in the future. Basically, if you click that link the place you are taken to recognises that I sent you there, and will give me a very small amount of money if you buy anything. This does not add to the cost of anything you might buy. Any money I make from affiliate links are used to buy more products to review on the show. To be honest, this is probably the easiest way for you to support Here Be Gamers! as you are likely clicking the link anyway, and it doesn’t cost you anything! I have begun making the (Affiliate link) note just for clarity between us all.
Thanks for taking the time for reading through this all.
