Closing the door on 2009

Posted by Christophor Rick (TheSuperGuido), 334 days ago Dec 31, 1969 19:00

2009 has been a crazy year here at Gamers Daily News. A summer sabbatical for yours truly ended and then resulted in a change of management and ownership here. Traffic has continued to grow steadily month over month showing us that there is value in what we are doing and that we have justification to continue.

Writers have come and gone, games have been played and reviewed and as much news as we could cover has been provided for the gamers of the world without corporate hype or fanatical bias but still incorporating our own thoughts. Does that make us a news agency or a blog? With 100,000 people a month, who cares what we are labeled. All we know is that we're growing.

Growth means pain and we have had that in spades this year. Over the last few weeks we have had server problems and those will soon be remedied as well. Simply put, GDN has grown beyond the capacity of our current hosting setup. So we are working to build a superior environment for the site that will allow us to grow through 2010 and beyond. An environment that will be robust, will provide you with the information you need in a more timely manner and allow us to expand our offerings.

Tonight we will switch to a different server hopefully and that will alleviate some problems until we can construct the infrastructure for the next year of GDN's expansion. That will mean faster pages and more stability. So if you encounter some problems overnight, that will be why.

We'll most likely not post any news or articles tomorrow or the day after. Heck we want to party like it's 20-0-9 as well and we can't possibly do that and write now can we?

So until next week rolls around, I would personally like to wish you all a Happy New Year and I hope that it will be brighter than the previous and that we all grow and reach that which we aspire to be.

As for us, we will continue to strive to be the premier independent video game news agency.

Happy New Year. Keep on Gaming!

Things will be a bit slow for the next day or so as we transfer everything over to the new host and await the DNS change. We will attempt to publish everything we can as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your understanding during this trying time. We hope to put it behind us soon and move forward.
