Look Up in September
(9/12/2000) V Planet readies for it's
first birthday but it's QQN who sends us a present! All that and why breaking
up with Darklegends.com is hard to do are on this month's Site Report.
V Planet is the first site to be dissected for the Future Software
Site Awards since responsibility of the site reviews was passed to QQN.
While there's a gigantic spotlight right
now looming over the 2000 QB Expo this month, there's actually a lot of
site activity going on throughout the QB community.
Just a month since QQN announced
it's "QB news updates daily" policy and they've surprised us at V Planet
again! It turns out that QBasic/Quickbasic News webmaster Magus
has reviewed V Planet on their site, making V Planet the first QBasic site
to be reviewed since QQN took over Future Software's Site Reviews.
Also, V Planet took home the "Worth a Glance Award" for receiving
a total site score of 77 out of 100.
Because Future Software and QQN are both
related to the Worth a Glance award, we digitally altered the "Worth a
Glance" plaque. Note the digital alteration on the plaque so that QBasic/QuickBasic
News gets credit for writing the site review for V Planet.
For months now we've heard about Tsugumo's
vision of a QB discussion board designed to bring all the QB programmers
back together, and when he finally launched this new discussion board he
called it the Game Developer's Refuge. Designed as a more conservative
Discussion board, the GDR is monitored for any obscenities or name-calling.
Also, it's just a great discussion board to visit if you're a QB programmer
who needs help or you just want to hear what some of the leading QBRPG
developers are up to.
Pete's QBasic Site is currently
under a massive reconstruction project, primarily the massive link and
reviews page a fresh, new look. The new design features a black background
with a green and orange trim, with an appearance that suggests that Pete's
QBasic Site will update often during the school year.
Also, for all you QB Expo fans who
just can't get enough of the tour guide Cyber Chick, a new build
of the game has just been made by Cyber Chick creator Wisdomdude for
all you platform fans to enjoy.
In a surprise move for the QB News site,
Abyssware Studios webmaster Community signed up our very own editor
to help submit news bits for Abyssware Studios. The move may sound a little
striking at first, but this isn't the first time another QB webmaster signed
up for Abyssware. Future Software webmaster Jorden Chamid has also
been known to occasionally drop in QB articles in Abyssware Studios every
now and then.
While QBShire will not use the privilege
of being able to post Abyssware Studios articles to promote titles from
V Planet's in-house coding group V Games, new articles will be posted
in Abyssware Studios by QBShire involving the 2000 QB Expo,
as well as the upcoming 2001 QB Gaming Gold Awards.
As the QB Portal symbolizes the
Quickbasic portion of Dark Legends Software, it's appropriate that
Dark Legends Software is removed from our Affiliate list. It's a shame
too; ever since Dark Legend's first days in the QB business, their site
was one of V Planet's favorites. But the good news is that the QB Portal
is being passed to Shadowcorps.com. If the webmaster appointed to
the QB Portal can maintain the same level of quality that AlienQB was able
to do with his turn at the helm, then we'll be more than happy to link
with the new QB Portal when it is finally released.
