What should we all be doing w/ StarcraftLive? Honestly myself and Grunt I believe too simply do not have the time to keep the site up to date w/ news. For those that have not posted news, it is quite a time consuming job that often requires an hour or two of committment each day. If you don't get news posted that soon, you might as well not have posted it at all.

Yet give up on the site we must not. But a new direction take it will. What direction that be, decide is up to you.

Give you your ideas, your thoughts, your suggestions (and your tired and poor and weak).

A couple thoughts tossed around are a sort of faux newspaper/satire for the Starcraft Universe and some sort of site driven by user content (though give that the game is not released, there is not much of that right now).

Satire definately. Humor goes a long long way. That's what drew me to war3 rather than other warcraft fansites.

War3.com was funny? I must have missed that.

Funny that they hosted my site for a while though, in it's later days.

faux newspaper/satire seems the way to go.

Then we can make stuff up.

Sorry guys, but this is the only way it's gonna survive; you've seen what the internet's like nowdays.

(Jim ran his fingers over her slimy zergy breasts...)

I back the satire idea in seriousness, though.

Not really, but they occassionally reported something funny whereas shit like warcraftiii.net was too busy acting like they're professionals.

I once wrote a news article for War3.com where I 'interviewed' an Orc peon or something like that about his working conditions. Uh, I also had one where Blizzard announced that Papa Smurf was going to be a mercenary hero. Someone else wrote one about gummy bears joining the Burning Legion. I dunno... we had fun.

See, I spend three hours every time, so each time I realise I might as well not post it at all.
