PostWelcome GNamer, GRcade's newest affiliate!
by OrangeRakoon » Tue Jun 19, 2018 7:00 pm

Since the (hopefully seen as successful) merge of Super ONM into GRcade we have been looking into expanding GRcade's affiliates. It's with great pleasure that we can announce the first as GNamer!

Image

In a similar fashion to GRcade (and SONM), GNamer arose from the ashes of the UK famous Nintendo Gamer. In its last days it was a website managed solely by Chris Scullion; before that, it was an unofficial Nintendo magazine (dare we say the unofficial magazine?), known variously as NGamer, NGC, N64, and Super Play.

It was know for its quirky humour, interminable (yet funny) footnotes, odd scores (Doki Doki Majo Shinpan famously got "NO / 100"), and "words everywhere", among others. The penultimate editor was one Matthew Castle, also of Official Nintendo Magazine fame.

As for the forum, it's very much a product of the magazine(s). Compared to the thriving Metropolis of GRcade, GNamer is more of a quiet village, but the community is incredibly dedicated and tightly knit.

GNamer boasts a selection of emoticons, including Pac-Man, Captain Falcon, and a guy beating a dead horse. The forum tagline changes every day, based on user suggestions, usually involving horrible puns. There is also an irregular GNamer podcast in which the GNamer regulars talk all sorts of endearing nonsense, so check it out!


GNamer was already an affiliate with SONM along with GRcade, so on a personal note I'm happy to have that relationship live on over here. It is our hope that GRcade will continue to add to its list of friends with other communities and websites that share similar histories, so if you have any suggestions for places to check out and potentially approach, please do let us know!

As a way of celebrating our newest affiliation, and to drive cross-community interaction, you'll see two twin threads created on both forums. On GRcade you'll see "If you could add one character to Super Smash Bros", and on GNamer you'll find "If you could add one stage to Super Smash Bros". If that interests you, take a look and get to know our new friends!

We're really pleased to have GNamer as an affiliate! OrangeRakoon really spearheaded this, so thanks OR from all of us.

When we set up our first affiliate scheme with SONM I think it worked really well, with both communities taking the time to visit & get to know each other. I know GRcadians will be just as welcoming again now, and to new friends from GNamer, thanks for coming!

P.S. Affiliate banner in our links bar incoming, give me a moment...!

Howdy folks - I'm one of the admins from over on GNamer. OrangeRakoon approached us initially for SONM and when he suggested an affiliation for GRcade, it made perfect sense.

Please feel free to check out the forum - we're quite a small forum compared to GRcade, but we're dead keen to meet as many of you both from spending time over here and from you guys perhaps doing the same over on GNamer.

Thanks for having us and I'm very much looking forward to getting to know you all and chatting about some games and of course, some stuff. :D

Hello, GNamer folks!

It's great to see that GRcade and GNamer have teamed up in this way. I'm not familiar with your forum but I shall take a look to find out more :-).

I feel certain that GNamer must be home to TONS of Wii U fans (4lyfe) so please join in the chat in our dedicated and definitely-not-dead Wii U (Club U) thread. Of course, we have a Switch thread for folk looking to play Wii U ports, too :toot: .

Ha, I myself didn't own a Wii U myself so I'm afraid I can't contribute much there. I'm pretty much the only person from GNamer who didn't have a Wii U though, so I'm sure in time there'll be some chat headed your way from ourselves!

Just a heads up for any guys trying to register - we had a bit of a security issue with spam accounts a while ago resulting in us having to manually activate new users for a while. Drop me a PM on here if I've missed the email about a new user and I'll activate you - I'll try and get that feature disabled in the meantime with this affiliation.

Thanks for the warm welcome from all so far. :)

Welcome GNamer’s.

We’ll be nice at first, but as SONM can tell you, we will assimilate you and destroy your entire identities. It’s what we do. :toot:

It's an Italian gn-, like gnocchi.

I've always gone for "gee namer" as the name for the forum, but hey, there's no hard and fast rule for how you say it - you do you. :)

The SONM members have arrived, bearing a peace offering from their weak and fearful moderators.
