DigitalEro is looking to start the new year with a bang as we take to the blogosphere in a groundbreaking Web2.0 attempt at viral marketing and multimedia synergy! Just kidding. ;)
But it's true, we're on Tumblr
now! We'll be posting site updates and downtime warnings before they happen and feature your work! Follow us, like, subscribe and submit your own stuff!
But wait, there is more! We are looking to launch our own file host exclusively for our members within the next month. This way, we hope to provide you guys with a reliable place to upload your images, animations, models and maps. For now we're looking to open it up slowly to see if we will be able to maintain a sustainable usage of bandwidth. Only admins have access, but...
...Here's the deal! We'll enable upload access for 20 random followers who send us their Digitalero username through Twitter
. 10 invites for Twitter users, 10 for Tumblr users. To enter via Twitter, follow our account and @mention us in a tweet.(we'll contact you via DM if you've won) To enter via Tumblr, follow us and use the Ask a Question feature to ask us for an invite. Be sure to include your DigitalEro username.
Model mega packs
Lastly we're looking to share big packs of all SFM models available on DigitalEro as a single download. The infrastructure for this undertaking is in place. Right now, all we need is people to help us curate this pack. Models, maps, particles, textures and scripts need to be tested before they get added to the pack and model authors need to be contacted for permission. Do you use Garry's mod or XPS/XNAlara and feel left out? Don't worry. We want to make packs for you as well! If you think you'd be able to help us make this happen, you can send me a private message
with A: the pack you'd like to help curate (SFM, GMod) and B: an explanation why you think you're the right guy/gal for the job. If you're a map/model author and want your content included in the pack, shoot me a PM as well, so we can work stuff out. :)
The staff wishes everyone the best for the new year! We're very excited about what 2014 will bring and can't wait to see what content you guys will make! Good luck and have fun! :D
