I welcome everyone to our new gaming site, Insert Coin.  Here's a quick briefing on what you can do and find on the site:


Registration and login is to the top-right for quick access.  You'll also see a search box which can be used to search for News, Reviews, Blogs and other Users.


All users are able to write reviews and blogs.  Reviews have the option of using the unique weighted review system, or a generic single-section review system.  All reviews and blogs have a comments section along the right side.


In the Reviews and Blogs sections, you'll find on the left your own blogs (if you're logged in) and to the right, the latest blogs from those on your friends list.  You can add users to your friends list by going to their profile page and clicking the button to add them.  If you do, a private message will be sent to them telling them you've done so.  Your mailbox for PMs is on the far right of the menu bar.


You can upload your avatar from your Profile and choosing to upload a new avatar.


And finally, there's Gamingeek Weekly.  This includes a whole new method of organization for each day's news and a custom pseudo-forum.  Unlike 1up, I actually do have some filtering or HTML for the sake of security.  Currently Youtube videos can't be posted directly, but I'm working on it.


There's still plenty to do, such as fixing up the profile page and PM management, as well as getting RSS feeds going.  This is, though, I think a solid starting ground.


Be sure to voice your opinion on what you like, what you don't, and how to progress.  While I can't make everyone happy, I can certainly try.
