You may have noticed that the site has had a slight re-design, and it has. At the top of the screen, there is now a menu showing all of the different categories that I hope to write in, and it’s mainly reviews. So, before I roll out too many of them, let’s just get one thing straight:
I don’t give a score.
You may be wondering why. I don’t think in some cases a score can be applied, and even when it is, it’s a biased review. The score indicates what a number of reviewers feel about the product, and doesn’t have any real indication of quality. To get a decent score, either in stars or percentages or fractions, you would need to judge several reviews of the same item. I play and enjoy some of the stranger items in life, and I feel more people should enjoy what they like, regardless of how someone else views it out of ten.
Point number two – my time is pretty limited, and I’m not able to write reviews about everything released. This site is meant to be dedicated to my building games, after all For the foreseeable future I will only be reviewing items that I think are worthy of note. So why am I reviewing things? Because there are links on posts that go back to Amazon, and if you shop through there, my projects and this site will benefit, and it won’t cost you an extra penny. So, if I think it’s cool, I’ll be telling you why and where to find it.
There are sites that sell ad-space on the side – I don’t want to do this. I think it looks ugly to have a number of ads on every page, and it distracts from the content. If I’m going to write all of this stuff, I’d rather my readers (that’s you) didn’t see some random ads popping up. If I visited a site and even one pop-up appears, my usual instinct is to get off the page. So, if you would like to support the site, I will supply a little link at the bottom of any reviews I write that will go direct to that item on Amazon, or you can click on the affiliate tab at the top to browse yourself.
I don’t want to keep talking about it – I just feel like I should let the net know how I stand on everything, and how I want this site run.
One more thing – feedback! I’m pretty new to all of this, so I appreciate any feedback you can provide. I love positive comments, and negative comments are also welcome, but please be constructive with your criticism – if you don’t like it, let me know why.
