  GameFront Product Update - FileFront News
  Posted by: n0e on 05-13-2011 @ 18:07 - Source: Break Media Gaming Editor

Greetings GameFront staff, volunteers, and users.

This is Mark Burnham, the Break Media gaming editor. I run GameFront these days, and have since we acquired the site ("FileFront" then) a year ago. I just wanted to give everyone an update on where we're at with bugs, and where we're headed in the future. It's been too long since I've been in the forums to chat with everyone, I know that. I plan to lurk in here more in the future. Anyway, onward!

If you're frustrated because there are still stupid bugs on the Network Sites, like pictures not working:
Boy, you and me both. It pains me to see core functionality not...functioning, and especially for so long. Understand, when these things go wrong, I know about them almost immediately. Every bug that exists anywhere on the site, I probably know about it, have it on a prioritized list, and am working with the developers on a timeline to fix it. We're on it, and as soon as I can provide a clearer indication of when these issues will be eradicated, I will. I spoke with the developers today about this actually, so hopefully I'll have a better answer for you soon.

If you're wondering where the network sites are going in the future, when they will be overhauled, etc.
First, let me state the obvious, something that's obvious to anyone who has worked on the Network Sites as a volunteer or staff: the Network Sites are OLD! They're old, rickety mansions of content. They're full of beautiful things, but they're also just very brittle. When the developers touch them--even to fix something--something else breaks. It's face-palm inducing, to be sure. This has been a development challenge, and it's why we have not yet overhauled them. It's NOT because we don't love the Network Sites, cherish the community there, or want them to be better. It's because we're trying to figure out the best path. This is why other GameFront projects have been taken care of first.

One idea we've thought about that has some logic to it:
a). Leave the old network sites where they are (and fix all bugs, of course). B). Create a new template for future Network Sites, within Wordpress. So new Network Sites (for say, RAGE, Portal 2 or Skyrim) would have a clean, fresh new look, powered by Wordpress--and the old Network Sites would stay where they are. Just a thought.

If you're wondering what else is on the horizon for GameFront:
Lots of very good things related files! We want to make the experience with dowloading, uploading and share files better. For instance, there is no way currently to "browse" for files in the main GameFront file database. You don't have filters that let you drill down into a "Most Popular Mods" list, or anything. We're very aware of things like that, and we have ideas to make the site better. We're on it.

Anyway, this is running a bit long so I'll end it by also just saying if you guys have ideas or feedback for us, hit us at:


We're committed to building the site into the most kick-a$$ destination for PC gaming files, as well as a source for great editorial (news, reviews, walkthroughs, opinion). We've only been in the editorial game for about a year, so we're still dialing in our focus and content there. We'd love to hear what you guys would like to see more/less of there, as well.

Thanks everyone. Have a good weekend!
