Default Weekly roundups

Here is the first one!

Please take a look and share your thoughts on the format, contents, whatever.

It took me hours - a lot longer than it should have, mainly due to wrestling with Wordpress. The visual editor seems to run under the twisted concept of "what you see is what you won't get". But now the first one is up, it shouldn't take so long. People, keep sharing whatever interesting articles you find and making threads about Final Fantasy and you'll be contributing to future roundups

This looks great, Flint. I love that you include the links to the discussions of each topic on the forums. I'm really loving all of the new front page stuff, and I really can't wait to see more. The weekly round-up was a great idea to keep things active on the front page.

May be useful for the next roundup:

New XIV: A Realm Reborn Trailer (cool song)
YouTube Video


Kotaku moan about something, as usual.

Yasumi Matsuno (dev for Vagrant Story and FF Tactics) Leaves Level-5.

I also notice you didn't mention the recent quote regarding Type-0? Was there a particular reason for this?

^ Huh, didn't see your post

Thanks, I was already planning to include a story about XIV shutting down and XIV:RR launching, and I can add that.

I saw that, but I wasn't sure it was significant enough to make the roundup. It's an opinion piece, and as you said, it's just moaning.

Prince Lex wrote: Yasumi Matsuno (dev for Vagrant Story and FF Tactics) Leaves Level-5.
Not a huge story, but I'll include it if I don't have enough material otherwise.

What quote was that? I didn't see one. I did see this, however, which only broke today.

Everyone, feel free to share any interesting things you've seen over the past week! I'll be posting the next roundup tomorrow evening. And thanks for all your positive comments

This week's roundup might have to wait a while. I was planning to do it during my train journey this evening, but the internet on board is dial-up slow, so it's too much hassle. It will be done this weekend though.

Excellent poast; suddenly, it turns out we have a shitton more stuff to do for the front page than just the main articles. I do particularly like you linking people to the forums for various reasons.

The next roundup is up, but something very weird is going on with the featured image. It has replaced the entire banner. Or maybe it's because I am at work and using an old version of Internet Explorer. Fangu, what's up?

That's weird and shouldn't happen, unless you replaced the image (it's somewhere in the WP-content folder / as an upload iirc) somehow.
