Gamefilter dot net
"So," I asks myself, "self: does the world need a Metafilter-like site dedicated to gaming?" The answer I got back was "Hell, yeah!" and Gamefilter is the result. It's the newest site in the burgeoning network of MefightClub websites, ripped off from inspired by Metafilter and fitting somewhere in between our more chatty private forum and the more long-form Full Glass Empty Clip group blog. You don't need to be a Mefight Club member to join in; registration is open to all.

So please do come, join up, post some stuff or join the conversations, earn a few achievements and exchange them for cash and prizes†, and if you run across one of the many bugs I've missed, post it to Metatalk Gametheory, and I'll try to fix it.

Thanks as always to mathowie for building the community from which MFC sprang, and the inspiration in particular for this new site. It's not a clone, it's an homage!

† Cash and prizes may not actually exist.

Right now Full Glass Empty Clip is running a contest to win a preorder copy of Portal 2, so there is a hope of prizes, if not cash.

This looks great, and has a lot of potential! I tweeted it for you.

This is good. I am in. Look for the dashing and mysterious John Marston avatar.

Yay! I've been really enjoying it so far but wishing for it to go public so some more bodies could help busy it up a bit. So glad it's launched.

Pretty excited by the concept, thanks for setting it up.

This MeFite OWNS THE .COM and "WILL BE HAPPY TO POINT IT" to your site. MeFi is awesome.

I tried to make an account, but I think I'm too dumb to figure out the BiologicalEntityCheck. No matter what I type in, I get:
"Sorry, please answer the question again"

I don't know the answer. :(

Stavrosthewonderchicken is a chicken, Lady Vader, a wonder chicken.

Oh, so creativity wasn't what it was looking for then. I see.

All set now, thankyouverymuch.

Sorry about that. Maybe I'll make the question/answer pair a little clearer...

Wierd, it looked like activation failed but actually I could login when i tried. (Upon clicking the link for activation from my email, "There was an error activating your account, please try again." (as universe))

Awesome what you've managed to do with Wordpress. See you around on there.
