Switch = portable so you can hide in another room. Plus you can play once everyone has gone to bed and all the chores are done.

Not happy about the unsolicited emails. Prior warning would have been appreciated. Does this mean that Armageddon will be paying to keep the servers open, potentially the front page stories? Or is it that they’re picking at a carcass?

Wait for real news before casting judgement on why they have the DB.

Could be:
- $$ money to run the servers etc
- Acquisition on terms to keep forums living

- other

- b*tchfest reasons.

People just want the news before the unwanted email. Seems fair, seems like its been pretty quite around here from the guys running the site and its just causing worry and fustration with the members!

I've had a good look through the Terms of Use when creating a new account and can see nothing about the right to share email information with a third party.


"Any personal information can be collected and can be used by NZGamer.com and directly associated parties of NZGamer.com LTD"

Also;

"By entering competitions on NZGamer, or registering to use features of the website, you consent to receiving emails from NZGamer.com."

The Armageddon partnership would allow Armageddon to send you emails.

I'd consider it a stretch that  Armageddon would are an 'associated party'. As a regular user of the site I haven't seen any clear association of any type. 

 

Regardless, a heads up email or statement or post or something would have been better than the complete silence from anyone associated with NZGR and finding out third hand through their 'associates'

A simple post about what’s happening could do wonders. They could make a sticky topic if they cared too.

Someone could always just email or PM Ron, I doubt he follows what is going on on the forums.

As a regular you would then have seen the competitions in the past to win passes and the coverage they have done the events. Let's not forget the times when NZG actually has a presence at the events.

Also by Armageddon doing this and annoying it it can mean more people come here. More people on site means better chances of.it surviving.

Does that mean they are also associated with E3 etc because NZGR cover those events? Or Sony because they give away PSN codes and games? Most news sites, magazine, newspapers these days identify where something is an advertorial or paid for marketing article rather than 'news' to avoid being considered misleading.

I tried contacting the NZGamer team using the "get in touch" button but I don't think my message got sent because it appears the captcha widget is broken :/

 

Any official word would be better than leaving us in the dark....

The article Buckchoi linked says Armageddon have made a partnership with NZGamer, that makes them an associated third party and falls within their Privacy Policy.

I'm sure once there is official word we will hear about it. But nagging and rushing them won't help. They know our love for this place and are doing what they can. Time is all they can ask from us and will give word when they can.

It's been almost 2 months now since their last communication.

 

That is hardly rushing them.

 

They have sold our email details and who knows what else to Armageddon without even giving us the respect of telling us it was happening.

 

I think a little nagging is appropriate.

 

I may be very cynical but the longer the silence goes on the more it looks like a total douche move to cash in what they can from the community we have built for them.

Dear Ron, I wrote you, but you still ain't callin'
I left my cell, my pager and my home phone at the bottom
I sent two letters back in autumn
You must not've got 'em
There probably was a problem at the post office or somethin'
Sometimes I scribble addresses too sloppy when I jot 'em
But anyways, f*** it, what's been up, man?
How's your forum?

How's your forum?

 

Dear, Kicks, I meant to write you sooner, but I just been busy
You said the forums popping now, but some users are in a tizzy?
Look, I'm really flattered you would call your account that
And here's a gold membership for ZombieRawkMachine
I bumped up his points cap
I'm sorry I didn't see your post earlier, I must've missed you
Don't think I did that s**t intentionally just to diss you
But what's this s**t you said about you rip off Em too? I say that s**t just clowning, dawg
Come on, how f******d up is you?
You got some issues, Kicks, I think you need some counselin'
To help your @ss playing Hitman
When your posts get voted down some
And what's this sh*t about emails spammed from armageddon?
That type of s**t'll get me in legal trouble
I really think you and the other posters need each other
Or maybe you just need to treat them better
I hope you get to read this reply
I just hope it reaches you in time
Before you delete your account, I think that you'll be doing just fine
If you relax a little, I'm glad NZG inspires you
But Kicks, whats with the temper?
Try to understand that I do want you as a member
I just don't want you to do some crazy s**t; I seen this one s**t on the frontpage a couple weeks ago that made me sick
Some dude was trolling and posted this rap directed at me
And had other posters reading
And they were askin where I'd been
And in the thread they found a post
But they didn't say who wrote the tune
Come to think about it, his name was... it was you, damn
