Greetings nerdites! Your friend­ly neigh­bor­hood EiC and web admin here with a small site update.

My aren’t we grow­ing well? That is the what the stats tell us at least. Week on week growth is what we show, and we are not even in our final form! It’s astound­ing for a small setup like ours — and hum­bling.

We can’t prop­er­ly express how excit­ed we are that we are received so well. We are focus­ing on cov­er­ing gam­ing and the geek sphere in a slight­ly dif­fer­ent way than most sites, and you have shown us there is an audi­ence there for it! There is a mar­ket for thought­ful analy­sis, there is a mar­ket for the­se view­points that haven’t been a focus of the main­stream gam­ing press. There is a mar­ket for a site that doesn’t treat its audi­ence like a com­mod­i­ty to be served up to the high­est bid­der.

With my unend­ing pas­ta spillage because of you fine folks cov­ered, let’s get you all up to speed on a cou­ple of hap­pen­ings over here at SuperNerdLand.


Just recent­ly we were approached by Liam Crowter, who is the mind and body of Liam and Powergamer have a very sim­i­lar ide­ol­o­gy behind the cre­ation of their site as we did with SuperNerdLand. To cre­ate a stan­dards dri­ven alter­na­tives to the cur­rent gam­ing press; To make sites that will treat their audi­ence with respect and will eschew the tra­di­tion­al mon­e­ti­za­tion method of squeez­ing audi­ence eye­balls for max­i­mum CPMs and con­ver­sions. You can read more of our view on that from our last site update. is in the state of evolv­ing, though. And that is where we — and some oth­er sites — come in. is look­ing to grow into some­thing more of a con­tent aggre­ga­tor, as well as build up a com­mu­ni­ty around it all. You can find out more from their announce­ment on the mat­ters here.

As such, they reached out to sites that adhere to sim­i­lar ideas on stan­dards and com­mu­ni­ty appre­ci­a­tion. Sites like and our­selves (com­mence blush­ing) to start pulling con­tent from once Powergamer makes the switch to their new form lat­er this year.

After dis­cussing it with the crew, we are more than hap­py to throw our hat into the prover­bial ring!

So what does this mean for SuperNerdLand? Well, real­ly it’s a pure ben­e­fit to us. At least as we see it. is built with very sim­i­lar stan­dards to our own, so we are proud to team up with them. This con­tent part­ner­ship in no way gives any edi­to­ri­al con­trol over us by Powergamer, nor us over them.

What this con­tent part­ner­ship means is: sites that agree to part­ner with Liam and Powergamer will have some of their con­tent aggre­gat­ed on their site, along with oth­er sites. This is won­der­ful to us, since we are not ad-based. Our focus is on qual­i­ty con­tent, and that con­tent being able to reach as many will­ing eyes as pos­si­ble. To us, so long as some­one is view­ing, com­ment­ing on, and appre­ci­at­ing the con­tent… it doesn’t mat­ter to us whether it was viewed on our side of the fence or another’s.

What does this mean for Well you would have to read up on their state­ments here, and talk with Liam about specifics, but they are essen­tial­ly just build­ing a sta­ble of qual­i­ty con­tent cre­ators to be able to pull con­tent from to aggre­gate for the com­mu­ni­ty at large.

Right now, every­thing is still in the build­ing and plan­ning phas­es. You will see a new sec­tion on our side­bar start­ing today, though, which has a link to and announces them as a “Content Partner.” This was the only caveat Liam gave for the aggre­ga­tion agree­ment, and some­thing we would have want­ed to do any­way. So it cer­tain­ly works out for the both of us going for­ward.

Until then, I do urge you to go check out if you do not already! As he says, he doesn’t have the time to update every­day but the con­tent he has cer­tain­ly has a focus on qual­i­ty over quan­ti­ty.

They are final­ly com­ing!

Smaller bit of pon­tif­i­cat­ing on this aspect. I just want to announce where they stand.

Due to being busy doing work that actu­al­ly pays my bills (every­one is a vol­un­teer here at SuperNerdLand), and cer­tain events like E3 and hol­i­days that occurred, our com­mu­ni­ty fea­tures launch got a bit delayed. They are not for­got­ten though!

The back­bone for the com­mu­ni­ty fea­tures is already estab­lished. In fact, all  the func­tions are there now! It is just a mat­ter of final­iz­ing some fea­tures, get­ting it themed and look­ing nice, and test­ing that are left. So expect forums, user pro­files, groups, mes­sag­ing, user blogs and more very soon!

We are going to be test­ing the­se fea­tures inter­nal­ly this week, and next week we shall grab a few audi­ence mem­bers to beta the fea­tures a bit. The plan is to have every­thing up and run­ning for folks by July 17th! We are so excit­ed. You have no idea.

That wraps up our cur­rent hap­pen­ings, besides our con­stant pur­suit to craft qual­i­ty con­tent for you all. As always, I want to give my most heart­felt thank you to our audi­ence. We could sit here all day and rant, pon­tif­i­cate, and ana­lyze the indus­try to our hearts con­tent. Without our audi­ence, we are noth­ing. We may make the con­tent, but you are SuperNerdLand. – 1280-7202-1024x576.jpg – 1280-7202-150x150.jpgJosh BraySite NewsSite NewsGreetings nerdites!
