General PSA: What I've Been Doing

Hey guys, what's happening? Hope your memorial day is going well.

So as you may know, PSX Extreme recently came under new management, with me (Ty “Sidular” Harvey) being the new owner. I’ve been kind of silent for the past 30 days or so, and wanted to give you guys an update on what I’ve been doing, and how I believe it’ll benefit PSXE moving forward. Apologies in advance if the formatting is poor.

 

  1. The PSX Extreme forums are being maintained again. I recently moved them to a new server, and opted to use new and modern forum software. This should make things far easier to moderate.
    If you used the forums in the past, don’t worry. All of your account information is the same. You should be able to login using your old credentials, and find all of your old posts dating back to 2003.

  2. I’ve been trying to familiarize myself with the site infrastructure and backend, which considering that this site is coded in a language far before my time, I’ve been having some issues learning its code. Right now I’m still studying things, and trying to see what does what by essentially going in and changing values to break the site. Because you know, breaking things is the best way to figure out how things work.

  3. I’m trying to bring new contributors on board, and have several talented people lined up already. Expect some articles from them in the near future.
    3.a. I don’t expect for the site to be back up to its original activity until the end of the year.

 

I’m also hoping to be able to cover some esport stuff in the future. I’m kind of a part of the Team Fortress 2 esport scene, so I personally love that side of gaming. Do you guys want to see player interviews or general coverage of esports on PSXE? Heck, maybe we could even host our own small tournaments every once in a while for PlayStation games. It’s up to you guys though.

 
Anyway, that's basically it for now. This was just a general PSA about what I've been doing. Hope to be able to give you all more information soon, and see PSXE really thrive in the gaming media world like it used to a few years back. 
 
Also, I love Team Fortress 2. Strongly believe that it's one of the best esport games around, potentially one of the best games around in general. If you've never played this game before, I highly recommend giving it a download. It's a Steam (PC) game, and is totally free to play. There are also a ton of handy tutorials on YouTube to get you started, including some from ArraySeven. So yeah, check it out, and have fun.

I've never considered myself to be a good enough gamer in any game to be included in an eSports environment, but if we can make something a little more local, count me in! Although the only multiplayer game I play is Rainbow 6 Siege; although I'm not a fan of FPSs, I love Siege.

Also, your taking over is much appreciated. I'd hate to see this site die.
