Guild Hosting System Goes Live!
Posted Tuesday, September 30 2008 @11:02 PM
After 8 months of development, the GameStreet Guild Hosting Systemis finally ready for prime time! Its been a long long road to get to this day, and we here at GameStreet are proud to unveil our pride and joy.
A lot of thought and planning went into the design of our guild hosting system, especially our guild designer, and I think you will see it when you setup and manage a guild for the first time. We set out to build the most flexible and customizable guild system on the planet, and I think we hit the mark. The guild designer allows anyone with no knowledge of web design to setup their guild and make it look any way they like with little effort. That coupled with tight integration with the rest of GameStreet’s features make it a useful and powerful social and organizational tool.
To dive into what the guild system is, visit our Guild Features Page and browse through the available features, hosting plans and widgets. And never fear, we have another dozen or so widgets on the way very shortly including a DKP Tracker, Guild Bank, and Polls just to name a few. You can see the whole list of widgets in development at the bottom of the widgets tab. As for our themes, we have a few available to choose from, and many more coming soon based on today’s most popular games.
So, what are you waiting for? Create Your Guild Now, or Browse Our Existing Guilds and see what they have done with their sites! You may be surprised how creative some guilds can get!
Feel free to drop us a line and give us your thoughts and suggestions in our Guild Hosting Forums or Contact Us Directly. We are always looking for ideas to improve our features and services.

Guild System Open Beta Invitation
Posted Monday, September 8 2008 @12:31 AM
Guild Hosting Beta Test Invitation
GameStreet would like to invite you and your guild to the open beta test of our new guild hosting system. If you are interested in trying out the system and helping us work out the kinks, please follow the link below to our test environment.
Our beta testing environment is an exact copy of our live website as of September 7th, so any changes you have made to your profiles, characters, or guilds will show up here as well. This also means that you can play around with all the features without affecting anything on the live site. There a a couple things that you will need to keep in mind while testing:
- Guild Sub-Domains and Custom Domains will not work in the testing environment even if you choose them while adding a new guild.
- Upgrading a current guild to premium and/or adding features is not supported yet.
- If you enter a credit card to purchase a premium guild account or upgrades, it WILL NOT be charged in the test environment.
- Automated guild event reminders are not enabled in the testing environment.
Our current catalog of guild themes is very limited at this point. We will be adding many themes over the beta testing cycle throughout this week for many of the top games you play (WoW, Everquest II, GuildWars, Warhammer Online, and about a dozen or so more). Your current guild page will be setup with the GameStreet default theme until you change it in the guild designer.
Where To Start
After you login the first time to the testing environment, your guild (or guilds) will appear in the “guilds” dropdown at the very top of the site. You can also get to each of your guilds through your “My Account” page under the “My Guilds” left-side navigation section. The home page of your guild site will have instructions on how to get started with editing your guild site and using the guild designer.
For an overview and list of available widgets you can view the guild features page at http://staging.gamestreet.net/guildfeatures.aspx. To browse other guilds on the site, you can view them all on the guilds page at http://staging.gamestreet.net/guilds.aspx
After Beta Testing
Unfortunately after the beta test is over we do not have a way to carry over any changes to your guild that were made in the testing environment to the live site. Make note of changes you made to your guild site during testing that you want to re-create once the guild system goes live.
Give Us Your Feedback
If you find any kind if issues anywhere on your guild site or any page of GameStreet, please let us know through the contact us page at http://staging.gamestreet.net/contact.aspx. If you have any suggestions on how to improve our guild hosting system, or features you would like to have added, please forward them to us through the contact page.

The long awaited GameStreet guild hosting system is scheduled to launch on August 24th. Over the next couple of weeks more information will be made available such as a complete features list, available widgets, and pricing chart (for paid accounts). The base guild system is of course free of charge and points can be spent by members to buy upgrades for your guild site.

Around 24 widgets will be available for use on your guild site, and many more will be coming shortly after launch. Here is a quick look at the guild page designer and some of its features:

you can now signup your guild on GameStreet and it will show up in GameStreet Talk under the “Guild Channels” section. You can invite member to the guild and manage security all from the guild management page on GameStreet. From that point you can add channels in GameStreet Talk and specify which guild members can use them. All guild channels are visible to all guild members, regardless whether they are in your contact list.
Invite To Channel
Added “Invite to Channel” option in the right-click menu on your contacts list. If you are connected to your own channel, you can click this option to invite the selected contact to that channel.
Updated Channels Look
Revamped channels list with new visual styles and hover tips on all guilds, contact and channels.
New Right-Click Menus
Added right-click menus to almost all items in the channels list. Many new options include adding channels, add and manage guilds, expand and collapse sections, and view profile, send IM and email options on all contacts and users in channels.
Improved performance and reliablity
Major changes were done under the hood to improve your overall experience. Also added an error feedback mechanism to better report problems with the software during the beta process.
Download the update and try out all the new features. Feel free to give us your feedback and suggestions on the GameStreet Talk forums. We have many new features in the works such as custom tabs for rss feeds and game news, custom announcements which all users within a channel will hear when entering/leaving channels, and group chat rooms.

GameStreet Talk Update v1.0.16 with Guild Channels
Posted Wednesday, October 3 2007 @11:25 AM
Just to give everyone a heads up on whats going on here at GameStreet, the new guild channels functionality in GST is almost ready for prime time. We are putting the finishing touches on the update and expect to release it within the next 10 days. We are currently testing most of the new features as well as regression testing to make sure everything else works as well.
The new guild functionality is just the tip of the iceberg in regards to all the things that have changed in this update. We have made quite a few changes under the hood to improve performance, reliability and help us better troubleshoot problems in the future. We will be performing some internal testing over the next week to polish the update as best we can before its released. If any members are interested in helping us with the internal test, please contact us for instructions how to get involved.
** Windows Vista Users **
Many Vista users have experienced many issues and some have not been able to get GST to work at all. We have been doing what we can to fix the many issues with vista, but some issues are still outstanding. This update will include better functionality to help us troubleshoot the outstanding issues since we have been unable to reproduce them in our internal testing. Once we are able to better understand the issues users are experiencing, we will be able to quickly release patches to fix them. We sincerely apologize to any users who have had to endure these issue. But, things like this are expected to pop up during the beta process and we need your help to report them and work with us to get them fixed. Many thanks to any of you who have already contributed to this process in the past.
Keep your eyes opened. More information and screenshots coming soon!
