OMGN Goes to the Movies!

Aug. 7, 2011; Channels: OMGN; By OMGN Staff

OMGN Goes to the Movies! It's that time of the year again folks! No, it's not Christmas. It's the time when we here at OMGN blow up the site and start to do something totally different. OK, it's not quite that drastic, but we are indeed adding something different. We're adding coverage of another industry that many of us find almost as entertaining as video games -- movies! OMGN has always focused on at least a small segment of the video games industry. We...

Facebook Login Integrated

Jun. 24, 2011; Channels: OMGN; By OMGN Staff

Facebook Login Integrated There are so many websites out there vying for registrations that many people choose not to register with some websites because they don't want to have to remember yet another username and password. Some just don't want the hassle of registering and confirming their email address, while others just don't want to have multiple accounts across the web. Well, late June 21, we decided to do something about that here at OMGN. You can now login to...

OMGN Status Launched

May. 26, 2011; Channels: OMGN; By OMGN Staff

OMGN Status Launched We're proud to announce that early May 25 we launched our new Status page. Our Status page houses some metrics about how OMGN is doing. We've recently been making many performance upgrades to the website, so we wanted to give our readers a better idea of how the website responds to their requests and what our uptime is. Additionally, we wanted to start publishing some metrics on our visits and page views. While we'd always like them to be higher...

Get Paid To Blog!

May. 2, 2011; Channels: OMGN; By OMGN Staff

Get Paid To Blog! Back in December we started a revenue sharing program for our writers and editors. This system has turned out to be a good idea for us, and we've now built an administration module to better administer this. You read about this new module in Robert F. Ludwick's personal blog post about today's site release. With the release of this module, we're now extending our revenue sharing program to all bloggers here at OMGN! Even if you're not a staff...

Site Issue: Android Phones

Mar. 6, 2011; Channels: OMGN; By OMGN Staff

Site Issue: Android Phones We are currently investigating a known problem with the standard Android browser and the menu link in the header of our site. The menu currently does not appear, and you are unable to scroll the page any more after clicking the button. We are unable to diagnose the issue properly due to the Site Developer and President Robert Ludwick's lack of an Android device; however, we endeavor to patch the website as soon as possible. We are working on...

Dec. 17, 2010; Channels: OMGN; By OMGN Staff

Get Paid to Write & Edit Starting today, OMGN writers and editors will get paid for their efforts. Up until now, all contributors to OMGN were considered voluntary and did not make a single cent for their efforts.

OMGN Forum Launched

Jul. 21, 2010; Channels: OMGN; By OMGN Staff

OMGN Forum Launched The old OMGN had a forum installed for our users to, well, use. The old Forum was actually the basis for membership on the site. We simply tacked on an internal hook to the Forum's user management system to enable extended user functionality across the entire website. Obviously we haven't had a similar Forum since our relaunch over a month ago. We felt it was in our best interest to have a custom forum for the new OMGN for a variety of...

OMGN Relaunched!

Jun. 5, 2010; Channels: OMGN; By OMGN Staff

OMGN Relaunched! OMGN first launched in October 2002 as "Online Multiplayer Gaming Network (OMGN)." Back then, we focused on online multiplayer games because, let's face it, nearly 8 years ago, online gaming wasn't nearly as robust as it is now. Back then, Xbox Live still had a month to go before it launched to the public. PC gaming was about the only viable online medium, as the Sega Dreamcast had already been shut down. We primarily catered to browser-based...
