Gamer Seeking Gamer Profile “How To”: Online Gamer Profile (adding Servers, Factions, and Characters)!It’s time for another installment of our informative looks at one of our profiles! Today, it will be the Online Gamer Profile. Specifically, we’re going to look at adding a Server, Faction, and Characters to your profile. This will be particularly helpful for our MMO gamers. The following step by step guild will explain the areas indicated in the accompanying picture:Step 1: Add a Server. Many online games have different servers that players play on. Here is where you can indicate the server you are active on and the information pertaining to that server. You may list information for 3 different servers for each game title!Right now, we do not have the servers listed for you (as that would be A LOT of work for just one guy to get done). So, just type in the name of the server in the box, making sure you spell it exactly as it appears in the game server list.Step 2: Add a Faction. Most MMOs have different (and frequently enemy) factions in the game. Here is where you can indicate which faction you play on the selected server. You may list information for 3 different factions for each server, in the event that you play more than one faction (where allowed). For games that don’t have factions but you want to list characters for, just put “No Faction” here.Right now, we do not have the factions listed for you (as that would be A LOT of work for just one guy to get done). So, just type in the name of the faction you play for, making sure you spell it exactly as it appears in the game.Step 3: Add a Character. This is where you can enter information for up to 10 characters you play for each faction you play on a particular server. Note that you may list the same faction more than once if you have more than 10 characters for that faction.You can list the following (optional) information for each character:- Name: The character’s name.- Race: The character’s race.- Class(es): The character’s class or classes.- Level: The character’s current level or levels.- Seeking a Guild: Designate whether each character is looking to join a guild or not!- Character Build: Paste a link to show your character’s current build on one of the many wonderful sites out there!Step 4: Add More & Review Info! This is fairly self explanatory. Once you are happy with the information you’ve entered, save the profile.Here is a sample of a filled out Online Gamer Profile if you want to see what they look like once completed:http://www.gamerseekinggamer.com/profile/live/og/266I hope this helps you create informative, full profiles so you can find the gamer or guild you’re looking for!

Rainy Day Gaming | Gamer Seeking Gamer

Here is my latest post on the Gamer Seeking Gamer blog…

I never really realized how powerful an impact gaming has made on my life. It has influenced, indirectly, more than I could imagine.

This weekend, we got some unseasonably wet weather. It felt more like autumn than summer. Rain clouds came marching in over the mountains to the west led by a cool breeze unique to rain storms, inspiring my creativity. It is my absolute favorite type of weather and to get some in the middle of June is utterly astonishing.

During these days I have also been feeling sick due to allergies, a cold, or both. Having this much down time during this kind of weather has allowed me to soak it in and enjoy it. As I did, my mind began wondering why, exactly, do I love this type of weather so much. The answer, I was shocked to conclude, is gaming.

You see, when I was growing up I played a lot of Dungeons & Dragons, both the basic boxed sets and the Advanced variety. I also ran around outside a lot and played tag, baseball, football, and a variety of other games that involved running, jumping, and getting dirty. Sometimes, during those beautiful summer days it was hard to decide what we (myself, my brothers, and my cousins mostly) would do. So, when we played D&D, it was with distractions and breaks to run around outside, making the experience unfocused and uninspired.

When it was raining outside, though…. (Read More)

Gamer Seeking Gamer Profile “How To”: Table Top Gamer ProfileHello and welcome, gamers, to part three of our continuing series of posts detailing your available profiles, what they can do, and how to best use them. Today, we will be looking at the Table Top Gamer profile when listing a table top-role playing game. Specifically, the user edit portion of the profile. This is what you will see (as a member) when you are setting up or editing your profile for a table top role-playing game (such as Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder).Below are descriptions for the keyed areas in the accompanying image:1. Basic Information. This section is shared among all of the games you list for your Table Top Gamer Profile. Here, your Age Bracket is automatically filled in based on your date of birth from your Membership Information page. Also, your location including city, state, country, and Zip Code are listed (but NEVER your actual street address). The Profile Status section allows you to select the visibility of your profile, setting it to be searchable, public (but not searchable), or private (not visible at all). Finally, there is a drop down option for you to select how far you are willing to drive in order to play your listed games.2. Game Details. Here is where you provide details that are specific to each game you list. Many of these options will be the same regardless of game type, but there are some essential differences. Here, we are going to focus on listing a table top role-playing game (Dungeons & Dragons).—-Game Type: Here is where you select the type of game you would like to list. “Table Top Role Playing Games” is chosen in this example.—-Game Name: A drop down list will populate with titles for the game type selected. Here, we have selected Dungeons & Dragons. Note that there is a space below this box so you can fill in a game title that is not on our list, with some directions to along with it. Properly listing a game title is essential in maximizing your chance of being found by searchers.—-Editions or Versions: Here you can list a specific version or edition of a game if you are looking to play such. It is free-form text and you should read the information below the box to help maximize your chance of being found.—-Campaign Worlds or Settings: Another opportunity to convey exactly the type of game you would like to play. Many RPGs have different settings, whether it is a different world or a different era in time; this is where you can specify your preferences.—-Experience: How long you’ve played the game.—-Availability: A listing of the days and times you are normally available to play the listed game. Just click the times of the day you are interested in. It can be a lot of clicking and we are looking into ways that you can import the settings from one game into others. For now, you need to select these for each game you list to help inform searchers when you’re available to play.—-Preferred Playstyles: Here you can list your preferred type of game environment. Do you like hack and slash dungeon delves with little story or are you more of a story driven and role-playing type player? Check mark your preferences here to help get you into the right game for you.—-Game Specific Notes: A free-text area for you to offer details and preferences about each individual game you list. This can help searches really get to know what type of a player you are and help you find players and games that suit you the best.3. Add Another Game: Click this button to add another game to your profile. Each profile may have up to 10 games listed.4. Cancel/Save: Self explanatory buttons that you click on in order to cancel the changes you’ve made or to save them. You MUST click “Save” before the changes will appear on your visible profile!I hope this information helps you to create a full, well thought out profile so that similar type players can find you and get you into their game! As always, any comments, questions, or suggestions are welcomed.

This post deals with your private information and how it is (and isn’t) used! 

Gamer Seeking Gamer Profile “How To”: Membership Information!Well met, gamers! This is part two in a continuing series of posts that will detail the profiles and options available to you as a member. Today, I will be covering the “Membership Information”. This section is important because this is where you are trusting us with your personal and private information. I want to clearly demonstrate what is visible, what isn’t, and how the information is used.First of all, I am an adamant supporter of privacy, particularly online. Your information is yours. It isn’t ours to sell, trade, or otherwise make a profit on. The information you provide us is used to help search results, provide us with contact information, and if necessary protect ourselves and our members when issues arise (legal or otherwise). We will fully cooperate with law enforcement to investigate reported criminal activity, for example.So, here is a breakdown of the information we ask for, how it is used, and whether or not it is publicly visible. Again, the numbers below correspond to the numbered items in the accompanying image:1. Your Gamer Name and Gamer Image are your public identity on Gamer Seeking Gamer, much like a forum name and icon. Your Gamer Name is not changeable but your Gamer Image may be changed at any time. Please make sure the content of both are suitable for the general public. It is strongly suggested you not use your own name or image for your own protection, but we will not force a change if you do so. Nudity, violence, hate, and other inappropriate material will be deleted. Please use this resource respectfully.2. Email Address and Password. These items are NOT publicly visible to other users of the site. The email address is used only for us to communicate with you. We won’t spam your mail box, though we may send out an occasional reminder that we’re here for you. Once I activate it again, this is also where we will send membership notifications, such as when you have a new message waiting for you. Naturally, your password is private and will never be displayed.3. Location Information. The purpose of Gamer Seeking Gamer is to bring people together in order to play games. So, your location information is VITAL for accurate search results. The items that are searched (and displayed) are Country, State (or area), City, and Zip Code. Please be certain that these items are accurate or you might be missed by a search! Your Street Address is for Membership Information only and will NEVER be publicly displayed or searchable!4. Membership Type is something that will grow as the site does. Right now, everyone that signs up are “Founders”. This will likely continue until our next site update, but will include at least the first 1,000 members. Founders will have special benefits in the future, but for right now, it’s just bragging rights. Down the road, we may have paid memberships with additional features, partnership memberships, a special “Donor” title, and other types for you to choose from. This information is displayed publicly and when more than one title is available, you will be able to select which one is visible.5. Name and Birth Date. This information is private and never displayed publicly! However, your birthday is used to put you into a general age category for search results. Your actual age or date of birth will not be publicly displayed.6. Type of Gamer. This information is not used for search results or publicly displayed at this time. It was originally to be used to gauge what types of gamers are using the site so we knew what areas to improve or work on. That functionality isn’t working as I had intended, so it’s not really used for anything at this time. However, I’d suggest you still fill it out for when/if we use it in the future. It is completely optional.7. Useful Information. Handy links for you to check out. The terms and conditions of the site and privacy policy are self explanatory. “Safe Meet” is a page with suggestions and cautions about meeting new people. It is strongly suggested you read them before meeting anyone from our site, or any other. They are safety suggestions based on common sense and from my experiences working with law-enforcement at my “day” job.There you have it! Please be sure your information is updated and accurate.

So, if you’re looking for a group, online, or in meat space go check it out. I’m giving it a try to see if I can get a group together in my area.

So… As you might have guessed, I am a huge Led Zeppelin fan.  Recently, they released “Celebration Day”, a 2-CD (plus DVD or Blu Ray video) set that contains the final (?) reunion concert they did at the O2 arena in December of 2007.  For those of us that couldn’t be there, this album was my hope to be able to experience in some small way.
It exceeded my expectations.  The entire show was amazing.  They sounded like the rock-gods they are, throwing down their music like lightning and thunder from the hammer of the gods.
It is well worth picking up and rocking out to.  If this is, indeed, their last show ever, it is a great way to end it.

This is a sample of what I’m working on with Gamer Seeking Gamer.  It is the current version of what a user’s profile page will look like.  There are still a few tweaks coming, but I thought I’d share.  As always, comments and questions are welcome.

Pentatonix is the reigning (and final? I hope not) champion of the Sing Off.  They are amazing and you should check them out.  This is a member of the group, Avi, doing a solo number he wrote.  It is a wonderful piece of music and he is a hidden gem.  Enjoy.

I know, I know… and I still don’t have a personal Facebook page.  However, I can see its benefits for my little website in order to spread the word about it.  So, it’s there.  Please “like” it if you do.  If not, that’s cool too.  Regardless, if you are a gamer of any type of multi-player game, either online or off, please check out Gamer Seeking Gamer!
