‘Newest games’ added to homepage

newest games homepage

The paradox of creating a new roleplaying game is that people will be less likely to join a new game if there’s no players, meaning you can’t get players until you… have players. 

On OngoingWorlds’ homepage we’ve always shown games that have had a post recently, but this means new games usually go off the homepage quite quickly.

So not any more! Josh has done some coding for us and added a new category to the homepage showing newest games. Josh (formerly of the USS Providence which we’ve blogged about here) is a web developer who wanted to help out, and this is his first big improvement for us.

Newset games will stay showing on the homepage until they’re knocked off by a newer game.
