As Owen mentioned a few blog
entries ago, we've been
doing a little spring cleaning here at Dungeonaday.com--sprucing things up
around the site, speeding up development of some projects (like the increased frequency
of whole-level PDF compilations), and kicking off whole new ones (like the All
Genius Pass membership options). One ongoing modification that will not be
obvious to subscribers, but is an important change for the site, centers around
the material that non-subscribers can see when they visit the site.
Much of the that work will center around updating
the information on the static pages that describe the site and its content--the
sorts of things that help new visitors understand what is going on here and why
they might want to be part of the fun. The text on those pages, for the most
part, has not been substantially altered since Dungeonaday.com opened its doors
two years ago ... and a lot has changed since then.
On top of that updating, though, we're also going to
be increasing the amount of material that non-members can see and sample. As
we're approaching 500 encounter areas worth of adventure, there now is enough
of an archive that we can manage give a free taste to visitors without
diminishing what a new member would get after paying the subscription fee.
The first thing being brought out from behind the
"pay wall" is this blog. Beginning now, most of the blog posts will be viewable
by non-members who care enough to stop by and check out what we're talking
about. There may occasionally be blog posts that we want to reserve for members
only, but they will likely be few and relatively far between.
So, let's all wave a warm welcome to the curious
eyes that are scrolling over this column for the first time. Hopefully, a good
number of you will decide to become members and enjoy the full range of
benefits ... and we can get to know you better in the Dungeonaday.com forums.
