[The site is now live at http://cosmicwar.net/ -icy]


cosmicwar.pa is not available yet. The .pa extension in general is not in effect yet, and 101domain doesn't seem to be able to give me a date for when it will be available. Maybe by the end of the year. I've ordered it, but apparently there is no guarantee that I will actually get it. So I bought cosmicwar.net to use until then, which is only $10 a year.

What should I do about the .pa domain? I say I ask them for the money back and I send it back to you. Then we wait until .pa goes live, and we grab it again. It's not like anyone's going to grab such an expensive domain just to troll us.

Unless anyone has an objection, this is what I am going to do.

The next thing you can do is help me choose a RockeTheme WordPress theme:

http://www.rockettheme.com/wordpress/themes

Note that the newer ones (higher up the page), are also the most modern ones feature-wise (i.e they work well with smartphone browsers, etc.), and the best supported in their help forum. So the higher up the page your favorite theme is, the better.

From looking at just the most recent I like the demo for Hadron:

Though looking at the features in general the modern ones all appear very flexible. Feeling a little spoiled for choice.

Yep, RocketTheme definitely gives you more choices than you can hope to use. That's one of the reasons I am looking forward to spinning off my interests into several sites: so I can get to use more templates lol.

However, the newest templates always have a ton of cool features that the older ones lack, so unless an older template is aesthetically amazing (like e.g. Insomnia 3.0's Nebulae), it's best to confine your search to the latest models.

And with that in mind I am loving Citadel:

The video header is very impressive, and this is the only site I am planning to make in which it could be used non-gratuitously.

The domain works now, though there's only a placeholder message for now:

http://cosmicwar.net

And I have decided on the Remnant template:

http://www.rockettheme.com/wordpress/themes/remnant

The dark styling will be more appropriate for PA than Citadel's white one, I feel, and it supports video too if we end up needing it. Another big plus is that the default layout is much closer to what I have in mind than Citadel's, so less work will be needed to customize it, which is a big plus for me right now.

All I am doing now is waiting for RocketTheme to help me reclaim my account, because it is connected to an email account I no longer use nor have access to. As long as they get back to me today, the site should be up and running with placeholder text this evening.

Unique website visitors:

The "2" is for today, which just started. Sunday saw an explosion of traffic, for some reason. And the site's still not even linked from Insomnia's frontpage (and won't be until it's finished).

Things are looking good.

Saturday was the busiest day ever for cosmicwar.net. We also had a great Clan War with the 4-tier mod, and we are making lots of plans for the future. Things are looking good!
