It’s with great pleasure that I announce the imminent launch of the new Armchair Arcade Website, which will happen automatically on Friday, October 24, 2014. This is our third (and hopefully final) major site redesign since our inception in 2003. While the two previous incarnations of the Armchair Arcade Website (including this one) will still remain accessible, this new site is where all new content will exclusively reside going forward.
While your existing RSS feeds and other pointers will still continue to work, there will be no new content from this site. Luckily, the new Website makes it easy to establish the connections of your choice.
Despite originally planning for a more flashy Website, the whole point of Armchair Arcade was always to make the creation and development of new content easy for the team, with minimal administrative hassle. Unfortunately, the previous sites - including this one - never achieved that goal. After more than a decade, this new site finally does, and, as such, we’ve kept extraneous “flash” to a minimum. Of course, we do plan on adding features over time, but it will never again be at the expense of easily creating new content. Further, it will be far easier for our fans to create a new user account and comment on any of our content, making Armchair Arcade more interactive than ever.
This new site represents a new era for Armchair Arcade and one that I’m proud to be a part of. Hopefully you feel the same. So once again, welcome, and once the new site is live, be sure to subscribe to our updates via the email form on our Website, your RSS reader of choice, or the various social networks where we have a presence. As always, we’ll leave the light on for you.
Let er rip! :)
Will we be automatically redirected? Or will you post a link here once launched?
Going to armchairarcade.com or any variation thereof will automatically take you there, yes. But not until Friday.
