Introducing The Spotlight

Postby Rachael » Thu Mar 28, 2019 3:10 pm

As you may have noticed, certain people on the forum have a different color in their name, and suddenly a new subforum has appeared. Additionally, a new section has appeared on the ZDoom main page.

Well - leodoom85 and m8f now lead a new team called The Spotlight! This team is meant to showcase mods created by the community and give reviews of them. Anyone can be a part of the team, but the leadership selected for the team was purposely non-staff members (thereby to reduce bias).

Any mod can appear in the spotlight - good or bad - and writers will give an honest review (and a critique) about the things they think could use improvement.

If you're looking for new mods to play, check this out every once in a while!

This is super-cool; thanks for setting this up! :D

It's been a while since i looked at the website's source code, but IIRC the Blog and News sections use the same base template/class/thingy and just point to a forum to pull data from. That means it's probably trivial to set up a "Spotlight" tab on the front page that shows stuff from the new forum. Might be a nice n' easy way to do a form of that mod-showcase idea we talked about way back when.

Updated the post to highlight the new zdoom.org section dedicated to this.

Don't be afraid to reply to topics in the Spotlight section. It would be nice to see some community feedback with specific mods.
