Welcome to our first Monthly Newsletter!
In these newsletters each month, we will tell you about new features on the site, as well as giving you dates for E-Fed events, and general news etc. Just to start, I would like to say welcome to all members - new and old alike
First item on the agenda is, obviously, going to be the start of the second DXX Site, DXX: The Rebirth.
For those of you who didn't know, D-Generation XX was originally a different site which grew nice and fast, but was in trouble for having some media to download on there. Just in case, I set up a sequel site, DXX: The Rebirth, and I was originally only going to let people know about it IF DXX was deleted. As it happened, just about all of the original members came over and launched DXX 2 anyway, and so this is now the main DXX site. The original site is still there, but it's a ghost town now. Check it out at tnawweecw.proboards105.com/index.cgi if you would like to take a look anyway.
DXX: The Rebirth is now only 28 days old and we are already approaching 3,000 posts and have, at the time of writing this, 43 members. Congrtulations to everyone for their efforts and contributions - they all help to make this site a nice place for people to come and relax and share their views.
Currently in the E-Fed, we have one weekly show, RAW is WAR, which takes place on a Monday night. We have 20 members in the E-Fed - 9 faces and 11 heels. All in all, it's a nicely balanced E-Fed so far with some great roleplaying from everybody - kudos to you for that one!
Our first E-Fed PPV, Unforgiven, will take place this Sunday - 24th September 2006. All I ask is that everyone carries on doing some nice roleplaying and Ill get the matches written up, and the show should be up sometime Sunday night. Ill send a mass PM letting you know when it has been published.
Congratulations to our first batch of E-Fed Champions: CM Punk won the WWE Title in our second week, ICP took the Tag Team Gold, but GAWD was the site's first champion, winning the Intercontinental Title in it's first week. All 3 titles will be defended at Unforgiven, so best of luck to the challengers and champions in those matches.
The E-Fed is growing nicely, and so there will be some expansion to it sometime in the not too distant future. Once we get a few more people signed up to it, we may well launch a second brand, or just offer a second weekly, voluntary show (this idea was submitted by Assassin - nice work ).
I spent a few hours the other day adding some new features to the site, and Ill let you know about them now.
Previously, the Information Centre was the same for everyone - it was the site's center. Now, if you go into your profile, you can select which Info Center you would like displaying on the main page - more should hopefully come soon. This way, everyone can make DXX look as good as possible in their opinion.
Also, you can now select whether to display the News Fader or not. Again, previously the option wasn't there, but I've added the option in everyone's profiles to turn it off for them - again, that way if people don't like it, they can simply not have it displayed for them.
More skins will come soon - I'm aware that the choice of skins on here has been somewhat limited, and I will strive over the next week or two to get lots more options available to you guys. I'm toying with the possibility of offering the original DXX skin as an alternative, but I'm not sure if I can really do that.
I'm hoping to add a few more features in the next little while.
Congratulations to the site's new staff team - Assassin and GAWD were staff on the original DXX, so welcome back to them. Also, Rey Mysterio was promoted to the staff of this site after a nice performance on the original site too - so welcome aboard to Rey. I'm confident these guys are the guys for the job right now, and they have all been of a great help to me over the last 4 weeks on this site - I couldn't have managed without them, so thanks for that guys!
The Graphics section has taken off much more than I was expecting - it is the third most successful area on the site. Pretty impressive I think!
The Graphics battles launched last week, and what I think we will do is keep records of past competition's winners, and every 3 months enter them into a quarterly graphics Winner's battle. In December, I will submit all the winner's into a Graphic Of The Year Battle, and there will be some sort of prize involved for the winner.
All in all, thanks to everyone for some outstanding Graphics so far on here - we already have an outside reputation for having a superb graphics section. T-Mac, Kennedy, Assassin, Sandman - I hope to be half as good as you guys someday! Thanks for all the input on there
Member of the Month
As this is the first month of the site, September's Member of the Month hasn't been nominated yet - I'll credit them in next month's newsletter though! Each month, the Member of the Month gets an automatic title shot at an E-Fed title of their choice. If they are already a champion, they can choose to go for another belt. Also, a +10 karma prize is in store for the MOTM too. As before, if the winner is already a champion, they can choose to go for another title and still get +10 (like everyone), or they can double their karma prize and don't go for a belt.
I think that about does it for this month's Newsletter! Copies of this will be e-mailed as well as placed on the site. To check out the Newsletter area, log into the site or click here. Please feel free to leave feedback!
Take care, hope everyone is well!
