The Current State and Future Plan of the Nexuiz Ninjaz

heart The Current State and Future Plan of the Nexuiz Ninjaz
I wanted to make a note on the current state of and future plan for the Nexuiz Ninjaz, before I get to the state of [url=]Nexuiz (GPL)[/url], which we've recently found out had it's name sold by Lee Vermeulen [url=]without anything being mentioned to the community[/url] or the bulk of development team.

The Nexuiz Ninjaz were founded on the belief that all things could be seen as an art or discipline that can be mastered and refined. We came together to build strength in our community by sharing ideas in areas we'd believed to have currently mastered, such as movement techniques, weapon strategies, flag capture methods, server managemen, map mapping, graphic design, web applications, music, sounds, videos or anything you can imagine relating to the GPL game Nexuiz that tickled our spirits.

This community has been seen through many glasses and met with many attitudes through-out our lifetime. We've lived through different eras of Nexuiz and tried many things.

Recently, interest in "staff" has been dwindling and that decline in interest also hurt the quality of the site and we (mostly me) let things get out of hand. Particularly with the forums (spam bots) but also with the maps and servers, which I've neglected.

As some of you know, I have been working for a company for the past 8 months or so and that workload has been pretty consuming at times. I do a lot of what I've been doing for years. Building, configuring, programming and networking computers/devices together. Doing that all day it can be hard to do the same thing when I get home. However, as an investor in myself and in this community, I do plan to rejuvenate the website(s)/community by reapplying the skills I've been fine-tuning at work to here.

Making sure of this are some of the ninjaz, you'll likely see hopping around on some of the [url=]best Nexuiz servers for CTF[/url] and [url=]best Nexuiz servers for DM[/url], mookow, PC Lizard and Dokujisan, who have been been [url=]greasing the wheels of dojo_v2 development[/url].

As for future of the website, I think I want to re-evaluate our needs and re-design the way I go about integrating services into it. I feel like in some ways, it caused more frustration than ease. Please reply here or PM me about usability issues and what you'd like to see improved.
Inspire your neighbor, they'll inspire you back.
