Any comments on how this will work, Ian?

There's actually an Internet "standard" for how this stuff is done. It's on Larry's plate at the moment, but I'm pretty sure it would look like:

Your friend Freakenstein has achieved a new high score in In3structotank. Can you beat it?

Way to go Freakenstein! I'll try to beat that later... =P

This will look nicely and makes for good and quick navigation, excellent!
Let's hope Larry can 'devour' it well... ;)

But I haven't played it yet :(

Sounds good! If there are guys with my favorite games with good highscores, it will motivate me a bit to try and beat it.

ROFL That sad face did the trick... =P

Problem is probably all those glitches accurring on the games throughout the website... :(
I've made a comment about it in the S&S section sticky, hope they get it solved quickly! :)

More motivation = more gameplay!
And that is what we need on a gaming website! =)

That is.... if and when they repare the glitches! =P

Slacker.

As I said, there's a forming Internet "standard" for how those kinds of things are written/formed/displayed/linked, etc., and Larry's working on it right now. It'll be pretty neat once we figure out all the nouns, verbs, actors, etc., that the documentation talks about.

Slacker.

Biology Major. Chemistry Minor. That is enough information right there :(

I dunno if the type of programming you guys are doing is the same as mine, but strings like this typically involve variables, where the variables can contain links to a specific area, so you would have something like "Your friend," + FRIEND2 + ", has achieved a new highscore in" + GAME1544 + ". Can you beat it?"

Totally java speak, but that's how they would do it. Sounds like a pretty interesting project though!

Yes, it's similar to that, but we also have variables for "Your friend" and "has achieved" and "a new high score in" etc... all depending on the type of message we're building.

I absolutely agree with the idea of Followers, and I love how I will be in control of almost everything around my future userpage on AG3. About the groups, they don't necessarily need to be called guilds, maybe just groups ; why called guilds? I mean, Guilds and groups aren't the same thing.
But I have one minor suggestion, what if we could comment on achievements other people get like..

Your friend Freakenstein has achieved a new high score in In3structotank. Can you beat it?

Hey dude! nice work on that achievement! I'll see if I can beat you :)

Way to go Freakenstein, you've done a good job there.

And so on..
What do you think? this suggestion goes with the general achievement suggestion.
