New column is up ...

Another week, another Crispy Gamer column. The latest "News in Review" is up ... here's a link to it:

The News in Review

Just like last week, things aren't going quite like they're supposed to. For starters, the column is once again in the News section, as opposed to the actual Features/Columns section. What this means is as soon as the new news stories pop up this evening/tomorrow, the column will get buried under the deluge of news bites. Second, they still haven't found a way to fix the character limit for the news stories. While this really doesn't affect actual news bites, it DOES affect the feature length column. So, the column was apparently split into two news stories ... a solution akin to putting a Band-Aid on a sucking chest wound. But hey, at least it works and it's up.

Oh ... for the record, the last line isn't a typo. After losing a third of the column last week to technical issues, I couldn't resist the play on words. If you get the joke ... great. If not, ah well ...

Now comes the time for me to ask a favor of you guys. Go check out the column and make sure to let me know what you think. Let Crispy know what you think too. If you feel so inclined, sign up for an account on Crispy (if you haven't already), and join up with the Crispy Gamer Development Group to tell them you want to see more. It's also a great place to throw in your own suggestions on how to make the site better.Right now, I could definitely use a little extra support. If the column stays buried in the News section and doesn't get too many hits, it may not be around much longer. Right now we're in the "testing the waters" phase, and I need Crispy to know you guys wanna take a dip in that pool.

Okay, that's enough for now. Feel free to let me know what you think of the news recaps, as well as any suggestions for what you'd like to see from me in the future at Crispy (or anywhere else).

End of line ...
