Yep, NearbyGamers is now just over a year old, and things have been hopping lately.

I'm sure you've noticed the logo at the top of the page. It's the beautiful creation of Victoria Wang and it heralds many new things. This weekend I'm putting the finishing touches on a poster you can print and hang, and I'm also creating banner ads that should start bringing in more traffic soon.

In advance of this anticipated surge of new visitors, I've done a lot of work speeding up the site. Pretty much every page loads 4-10x faster, and the map is especially snappy (no more "scroll, wait, wait, c'mon, there!").

There's a new Forum section on my todo list that's going to be getting a lot of attention. The current forums work OK, but they're a bit too different from the forums websurfers already know... and they're just missing some features. One small addition has been sig lines for the forum. (They're limited to one line of text so the forum doesn't get overwhelmed with giant blinking rotating bold images between every post.)

It's up and looking OK, go to and it should prompt you to log into the app.
