Welcome to Powergamer!
As you may have noticed, we levelled up! The first version of Powergamer was a simple Wordpress platform focused on news and original content articles. We had an editorial team and grand ideas, but we quickly realised that there are so many other platforms that do this (and do it well), so we altered our concept slightly to focus more on community and game reviews.
This new platform is 100% custom built from scratch, so it allows us much greater flexibility in terms of what we want to achieve in the long term. It also allows us to adapt to our community and improve the platform as we all grow into it together.
We have brand new community guidelines that are worth reading through before posting anything, and if you find any bugs or quirks please tell us in the bug reporting thread. Finally, if you have any questions, suggestions, complaints or feedback don't hesitate to start a thread about it (or just PM one of the admins).
See below for a mission statement and a small FAQ.
