So, I have the idea of merging that idea with the SONM network idea, and came up with a new one which, I think, is much better. So, instead of having everyone play a game, one user could record themselves playing a game, then upload it to youtube for others to view, LP style. That way, it has the same effect of being a community feeling, but it would be much more organised and streamlined...

Thoughts?
I brought this up a few weeks back funny enough: http://www.sonm.uk/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=538

ONM Daily was a cool concept that could easily be integrated into a format that fits around this new forum and front page. It doesn’t even have to be vlogs or let’s plays anymore, the front page and general “SONM Network” could be used to promote community game dates, movie nights or even twitch streams. Heck, I’ve seen a fair share of users with YouTube links in there sigs. I am sure many of them wouldn’t mind a platform to share what they produce or have an additional channel to experiment on with a different audience.

Of course, this all depends on who is willing to make stuff and how consistent they can be.

I have an idea, not sure how useful it would be.

Add a "Shoutbox". It's just a small chat box that people can use to talk in without the need for an actual topic. It allows for faster communication I guess. I've seen it used on forums before and it's worked pretty well.

Doesn't the Chatango or IRC serve the same function? Or HDYFRN?
Thank you.

They get very little usage in the reality of most websites. They're not a fully fledged chat and they're not a topic, they sit in some middle ground where they do nothing particularly well, if there were a desire for that then setting up an IRC channel or chatango would probably be the better route to take but even then there's not really much point considering people would make their own or join a pre-existing one if they wanted something like that.

The only place in the forum I could see that idea work is in sports to discuss live broadcasts.

More news! In the very near future, all things going well, we'll be announcing our first major affiliation, which we hope (and I have every reason to believe) will be of great mutual benefit to both sites. You'll have to wait until the announcement to see who it is, so stay tuned and look out for that!

Elsewhere, we are making progress on SONM Network. We're still in the development phase for this area of expansion, with lots still to decide and do and plenty that could change, but it's looking pretty exciting so far! Expect to hear more about that in the future.

And of course, while we have been working on the above expansions for SONM we have still been updating our new front page (which had an update today), which is still barely a couple of weeks old, and there has been a steady level of activity being maintained across the boards!

Looking forward to seeing our first major affiliation. Though speaking of which, have there been any updates on NONM? It doesn't look like any progress has been made with the site.

I've attempted email communication (apparently it's how all the kids talk nowadays) but had no reply, and the site hasn't changed at all since it was first linked here. Our new affiliate link will be replacing NONM, as at the moment it's mostly acting as a placeholder so that the 'Our Friends' section isn't empty. Of course if something does happen with it we can always return to the idea of affiliation in the future, but at the current time dropping the link makes the most sense - it's not helping them when the website is empty anyway!

With our first major affiliation a few days ago, and the launch of SONM Network tonight, that completes the beginnings of the first trilogy of major expansions for Super ONM! Of course we would still love any feedback and further ideas from everyone, but now we will put our efforts into establishing and growing our current expansions. Please do check them all out (:

Not sure if i'm missing it, but remember the ONM forums had a Mock Cover thread? What if we have something similar with the SONM logo?

Thank you.

A mock logo thread would just be an open art thread that anyone can do really, as it is their have been several "Make a logo" type threads for seasons and releases and stuff so that's kind of an ongoing thing that's already set up

As Jenova says, we have already held a couple of banner competitions (the current banners across the three themes are a result of the last one!) so we sort of do that already. And while it's not a 'cover' per se, if you suggest a front page article you can provide the artwork too and see your design up on the site ;)

I don't think I was clear with what I said, apologies.

I meant instead of using the old ONM logo, we use the SONM logo for the mock cover, or something fitting for it etc if you get what I mean.

So as if it was a mock cover, just with the onm logo replaced with a substitute sonm logo. There used to be a Mock cover thread on the onm forums, id assume this version would belong to the arts section as already mentioned?

It would belong to the arts section, but that's just a thread for someone to make, that's not really something for "The Future of SONM" it'd just be a regular arts thread where people would make mock covers.

When do we get our twitch emotes.

Also a live streamer list.
Also people should stream.

I attempted a live-stream show in the past when I did a ONM wrestling themed show. LightSamus got butt hurt and banned it.

Can we get a button for embedding YouTube videos? It gets tiresome having to constantly type out the tags by hand, I don't think it would be too hard right? So we can just highlight the link and click a button and it will put the YouTube tags in for us? Something like that would be awesome and a huge time saver.
