Happy 2022, Gunslingers!

As we gallop into another year of providing a casual community for older gamers, please read & recheck this topic to get updates, global announcements, and significant changes that occur to & within our community during the year of 2022. You can get caught up with updates that occurred last year (2021) here: https://www.gunslingergaming.com/saloon ... =15&t=2220

We are starting things off on the right hoof (yes, I am rolling deep with this motif) with these initial new features to Gunslinger Gaming:
  • Young Guns - As older gamers, many of us have children. We now provide a venue for our children to game with the children of fellow GS* members. The gaming contacts are curated by the parents so get the play date organized by clicking HERE! Technically, this is more of a rebooted feature instead of a new one, but @gobi42 put a lot of work into getting it launched again.
  • Shellslingers - While the100.io site is a excellent resource for organizing games with others on several platforms, it utterly lacks any Nintendo support. We took matters in our own hands. Our Shellslingers.com domain name now routes Nintendo gamers to LFG (looking for games) and creation sharing (Super Mario Maker 2, Game Garage, etc) tool site created & administered by Gunslinger Gaming! If you are a fellow Nintendo Switch player, sign up for the services of Shellslingers.com!
Both new venues are featured on the Forum Index for easy access. Also, look out for Gunslinger Gaming Awards 2021 coming soon!

UPDATE 2-21-2022

StageSling.com - To consolidate Nintendo related efforts, the already existing project, StageSling.com, is replacing the role of the Shellslingers domain for all of us wishing to share/promote all our creations authored in Nintendo exclusives like Super Mario Maker 2, Game Garage, Super Smash Bros Ultimate, & more. All verified registrations will receive "Shellslingers" membership status so you & others can freely promote your creations, which will automatically be shared on StageSling's Twitter account. If you haven't already done so, be sure to follow https://twitter.com/SlingStage to get updates & notifications!

Shellslingers.com will return to forwarding people to the main GunslingerGaming site. The process is still pending, so don't be alarmed if you get an error when first trying. The Shellslingers Twitter account & Instagram accounts will remain active for GS members who wish to curate their social media GS news to exclusively Nintendo themed.

Update - April 24th, 2022.

Forum Improvements! I've rolled some tweaks to the GS* Forum experience, & they are explained below:
updateref.PNG
Notifications System - The entire Gunslinger membership or specific User Groups (ie: Game Master Lists) can receive a notification alert at the top right corner of their screen (when logged into your forum account) any a big announcement regarding our community is made. The feature is being tested with this announcement, in fact!

Manage your Browser Cookies - You should receive a cookie management notifications at the bottom right of your screen. You can toggle on and off browser cookies used by our forum. To be very clear, Gunslingers has no interest in gathering user data & certainly wouldn't sell that data (we are maintain the GS* community, non profit), but members having control over cookies is important.

Annual Star - A version of the Annual Star has returned to the forum experience after being left behind when we rebooted the forums. The color & number featured in the star icon, which you will see displayed under the avatar of all registered members, changes the number of years a person has been a member of this reboot forum. Now, we have MANY members that pre-exist the forum reboot, & you can see that badge of distinction under their avatars as well. If you don't have a badge like "Founder" or "Old School Gunslinger" but you were a registered Gunslinger back on our old forum, please send me a private message!

Recent Posts Preview - If you have visited the Index of our forums recently, you may have already noticed this addition. A slideshow of the most recent forum posts has been added to the top of the Index view of the forums. You can more quickly view these featured posts by click on the slideshow. It will display the main images in these posts in the slideshow, so feel free it embed images into your posts when appropriate!

*Removed the Recent Topics Slideshow at the top of the Forum Index because it looks tacky.

There are a few minor forum updates:

Hundreds of Smilies have been added as local options when posting here in the GS Forums. Next time you post around these parts, be sure to choose....wildly? :banana-wrench:

More Avatar Options. For those of you who don't want to be bothered seeking out & uploading an image as your avatar here in the forums, multiple avatar categories have been installed. You can choose Profile in your User Control Panel and choose from our local gallery of images. Of course you can still opt not to have any avatar or to upload your own selection as you see fit.

7/10/2022:

Two new pages have been added to the Gunslinger Gaming Forums:
  1. Live Streams of Featured GS*Members - A gallery of all the approved live streams is now available. The most active streamers will be at the top. Want to get included? Just let me know! Visit our Discord channel for notifications whenever they are actively streaming.
  2. Play Classics in the Gunslinger Arcade - We used to have a flash-based arcade back on the old site. Flash is out (thank goodness), but playing retro games right in your browser is still possible. Try it out! We will add 'new' titles routinely.
Both these new forum pages are found using the "Quick Links" menu found at the top-left of your screen.

Have fun!
