Why we have a donation button on our site (Updated)

This is just a small explanation of why we are taking donations on are site.

Just so everyone that comes to our clan site understands why we our asking for donations on our site I wanted to take a minute to tell everyone. The main reason is that the four main leaders and all of our members of the clan are regular people just like everyone else out there, yes some of us do have jobs but still cannot always afford to go out and buy the coolest new game thats out at the time. We all do have families and some of us do even have kids to care for.

So for all the members of the clan and anyone else that reads this if you care to support a cool new Social Clan or for us to be able to play all the newest Games, Map Packs, or other Add-Ons with everyone, Please take a second and just donate Anything you can to help the development of the site and for all of the members of the clan. But mainly to just help fund the development of the clan and its future as a hole, so that we can continue to grow bigger and bigger.


The process of launching the official site

This blog post explains the process of what it took to make the site and what I went through to get it launched.

A few months back in 2010 I
DMaster started developing the web site. To make the entire site I have used an application for the Mac called “Rapid Weaver” from Real Mac Software. Plus a few plug-ins from other developers and help from some other applications on the mac like “Taco HTML Editor”, “Transmit”, and “ImageWell” ect.

In the beginning of developing the site I started using a pretty cool theme that used
Ajax that I purchased for the site and loved it but sadly the theme started giving me some problems and I was not getting any help from the developer of the theme to fix the problems, so I had to hunt for a new one witch that alone took awhile to do because I wanted to find just the right theme that worked the best for how I wanted the site to look.

So after finding the new theme I immediately started working on the site again and from there on the site really began to come together. Until a few months later I ran into my next and my biggest issue with trying to understand and get the secured pages on the
leaders page to work. I ended up going back and forth in e-mails with the developers of the plug-in I am using for it and after a few weeks I finally got it to work.

Besides a few problems along the way I really did learn some new things about what it takes to develop a web site and had allot of fun while making it to. While it might not look like there is much on the site it still does take awhile to do everything and just doing a small thing can take longer then you would think it does.

Now after reading all that I hope everyone that has been waiting patiently for the official site to launch can understand just a little bit of what I went through to get to where the site is today.
