How the fuck are we on #5?

Post by cube_b3 » Tue Aug 03, 2010 2:37 pm

We have this link on the main page:

http://top100.sega-dc.de/

Now we are on #5, DC-Talk a site that launched like only a few years ago and was half dead when it launched, and is almost all dead now is a spot above us. They don't even cover all the news, and their most rescent post it taken from us.

Stop being lazy and vote for us!

Heh, I forgot all about top sites. I remember them being the big thing back in the late 90's, early 2000. But now I haven't thought about a top site in like 8 years.

That top 100 thing is Maturion's doing. He's the one that put the link there and set up the whole site.

They have warez link hosting. That's why I'm no longer a member there, because encouraging use of the Dreamcast system for warez as they become rarer is sacrilege. Also... this is why a site that couldn't help a newbie DC coder figure out what 'source code' has a higher ranking...

Don't forget they put up links to images of RedSpotGames games only days after they released them. :repuke:

How about...
- An entrance page with a hit counter
- Dreamcast swirls that follow your cursor
- An animated Sonic watermark that hovers over every page in the bottom right corner
- A scrolling banner gif with the latest news on it
- Everything in Comic Sans

That only serves to remind me that the gloriously tacky Geocities is gone and not even the shittiest MySpace layouts can come close to how awesomely terrible it was.

And also I'll never learn about the Bolcheck family ever again. :(

Myspace is just as good as the best Geocities sites at making the browser crash, though.
