Super ONM x ScreenGurus - New Partnership

It's Super ONM's two year anniversary, and as part of our celebrations I am very pleased to announce our newest affiliation with ScreenGurus. More than simply being listed amongst our friends, our hope is to develop and grow a long lasting partnership between our two sites, offering more great content and providing our community with a fantastic outlet for its skill and creativity. Look out for more information about the partnership and how you can get involved coming shortly!

Established in June 2016, ScreenGurus is a media website based in the UK that focuses on delivering our opinion on all things media.

We originally began as a blog called ThreeCount.co.uk in September 2015 – focusing largely on television and film news. This expanded quickly however and in January 2016 we launched ScreenCritics.co.uk. ScreenCritics was a phenomenal success and in its four months of existence, drew an audience of over 120,000 viewers from over 20 different countries. The website was featured on numerous media outlets, such as IGN, Business Insider and the BBC. The decision was made in June 2016 to refocus the website for all audiences – removing the UK focus and granting the website a renewed sense of direction – this is where ScreenGurus was born.

ScreenGurus aims to grow into a media outlet that people respect. You may not agree with us, the opinions posted or the decisions we make; but the website is ours and we answer to no organisation. Our opinions aren’t bought nor are influenced by the need for financial gain.

We explore all aspects of the movie industry, video games, television and the wrestling industry.
-- Shaun, ScreenGurus Founder
Why we like ScreenGurus: ScreenGurus already has ties to SONM, being founded and run by ex-ONM moderator Shaun2k5. It's no surprise then that a lot of ScreenGurus content focuses on interests shared with the SONM community, most notably with videogames (including of course Nintendo) but also with a love for TV and wrestling - something you can find fans of in SONM's off topic subforums. With such a crossover in interests, personal ties and complimentary content (ScreenGurus has no dedicated forum, while SONM puts out no news and reviews of our own), a partnership between our sites seems like a perfect marriage. With intentions of not just being good friends but also working together and providing a platform for the SONM community to write reviews and opinion pieces, ScreenGurus looks set to become an important part of SONM's extended family!

One of the key things to come out of this will be giving everyone on SONM a platform to showcase their work. We've been going since July and we've grown fairly rapidly in that time (We get around ~2k views a day) so there's plenty of room for people to get their work out there and get it seen.

A lot like how on the old ONM website there was a Nintendo website as well as a community; this will kind of work in similar strokes. Except where there Future held the reigns; SONM will remain independent and ScreenGurus likewise. If it works it works, if it doesn't we part and things go back to how they were. It's like we're sharing a hedge between two neighbors.

We'll be helping to publicize your video content as well as publishing articles that people from SONM want to write. In time we'll also be offering review codes back to you guys and if things work out that will get bigger and bigger. We'll also be linking to SONM from our site - so by default you become our community.

If you fancy trying your luck, then check out our thread over in the writing section!

I'd love to do an anime bit, but we have to focus our resources to the things we can do well. If it can be done well then possibly.
