The State of TA Part 4

By Cee Jay, 7 years ago
During one of many long waits in the Call of Duty 3 lobby…

Call of Duty 3 is such an unappreciated game, the multiplayer is so much better than COD 4 and in my opinion requires more skill, I might write an article about it one day. I wonder what the weather is going to be like tomorrow, I hope the missus makes me a good packed lunch in case it rains. Football's on TV tomorrow, hope it's a good game. Are all these Red Bulls keeping me awake or is the vodka balancing it out?

Well seems as though a match still hadn’t started angry

How can I best serve the loyal users of TA.com?

Obviously I’m strongly considering banning Badly Worn Toy as that would go down well with users, but no, I’m not choosing the easy option. “What would the users want most?” I’m repeatedly asking myself, I’ve read the Site Wishlist Forum thrice, came up with up two revolutionary new ideas, then BOOM, like a no scope from a Kar-98k it hit me.

Now that the madness of the moderation applications are over, I present you with a new State of TA article (For those uses who missed the last article The State Of TA Part 3 ), enjoy.

One of the aims of the staff restructure was reducing the workload the Administrators as well as introducing new blood and new ideas to the team. Whilst I can’t say an awful lot about new changes while the restructure is still ongoing, I’m confident that changes were necessary and as user numbers increase we have the team to take us forward, already I have been impressed by the new moderators and newshounds.

A lot has happened in the last 5 months, most pleasing for me is the gaming sessions which have come along way since I created a simple Google Calendar and is now one of the most used features on the site. If any users out there still haven’t tried it, give a whirl, it is an excellent resource for getting those hard to get achievements and best of all because we have such a great community it’s usually fun, unless you are boosting Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements of course cry

Finally a match, so thanks for….Arse “Host connection not available” moving on.

The duo of gamer goals and comments, help make this site the homepage for the Xbox 360 owner and also allow users to mock me when I inevitably fail all my goals. PlayStation 3 owners however have been homeless on the Tinterweb, having to make do with google.com, though no longer as we now have a sister site www.TrueTrophies.com . Though it’s still in early Beta testing TA (aka TT) is hopeful he can have it up and running for those new festive PS3 owners. For the time being the two sites we be completely separate and owners of both consoles we be required to sign up for both, but maybe, perhaps, sometime down the line you might be able to track your “TrueGamer” score.

As you’ve all probably noticed I’ve been creating site polls, I will be continuing to do these until I get bored or Aerodynamo cries and I hand them over to the news team smile If you have anything you’d like to vote for TrueAchievements Polls Forum is the place for you.

We are also now tracking over 2 billion TA points of which over 50k are down to me alone...

Because I’m just waiting for everyone to green up now, I think it’s time I moved on to what’s happening in the community. I’ve been spending more time in the chat room and less on the forums so I recommend this TA QUOTES: The Best (and worst) of TA CHAT by MortyDice it contains some of the best chat and forum lines and is generally a good read. Also Which 360 character would you most like to have sex with? is now over a year old and no one has mentioned Sheva from RE 5 yet, madness!!!

Finished and just in time too, as a match has finally started, only 20,000 points to go!

Thanks for reading,
