Hello. Welcome to Gameology 2.0 (beta).
The site you see before you represents a major upgrade to Gameology.org. We're still running things with Drupal, but it's a much more advanced Drupal (6.x) than the ancient (4.6) software we were running (unpatched) at the old site. This new site should be much more stable, and much easier to use.
One major difference is that non-users can now become users simply by creating an account. This account will let you post comments (though you can still post comments anonymously) and submit CFPs, Events and Links for moderation.
Beyond that, though, not much is really different. The organization is improved (hopefully), and there are a small number of entirely new features (Twitter integration, for example). But my goal in rolling out this upgrade was to focus on stability and keeping things working. I'm eager to radically re-think the whole gameology.org project, but that can wait -- now that this new site is in place, reorganizing it into something different will be much easier.
Anyway, the site you see before you is still in beta mode, meaning that things will change. Again, the point of upgrading everything and importing all of our custom 4.6-friendly content into contributed modules for 6.x means that shifting, adding, subtracting, are all going to be much easier to implement.
To that end, feel free to use the site as you see fit. Create blog entries, bibliography entries, comments, whatever you have access to. You may find there are some differences in workflow, but I think they're easy to figure out. If not, let me know.
Finally, please let me know if anything doesn't work like you expect it to. There are several things I know about that I haven't had time to tweak yet, and I really haven't done cross-browser testing for the design (if you're using IE, then, you may see some odd layout). Still, if you see a problem anywhere, don't assume I know about it. Let me know either in a comment on this blog entry or in an email.
You can also let me know if there's some feature you think I need to add. With the slick new Drupal 6 framework, we have a ton of flexibility.
At any rate, have fun, and let me know what you think of the new site!
