Ragna Blogging Competition

I was going through the fansite entrees just a few minutes ago when a great idea hit me. A lot of people were complaining that it took too much effort and time to build a fansite for Hugel. I agree with them 100%, since you'll have to learn how to do HTML and even get creative people to lay-out your site and make original art. It is simply too overwhelming for your average pinoy gamer.

Well, I'm not a web developer or creative genius but I'm maintaining a fansite of sorts using this blog. And that's when it suddenly dawned on me.

It's so friggin easy to make a blog. All you have to do is to sign-up at blogger, ro-diary, wordpress, and God knows what else. For content - you can easily pick out RO videos in YOUTUBE and comment. You can tell what happened during siege and even make pot shots at Level-up for not doing a good job (I pray that this doesn't happen as much though LOL). You can be vocal about issues like botting, hack-delete, and other censored topics in the message boards.

I'm happy to say that the RO Team is currently working on the mechanics for the first ever Ragna Blogger Competition! We're going to ask everyone to start their own online journals about their RO life and we will give prizes to those who make excellent work! All valid entries will also be posted at the Level-up community website section.

Mechanics and other details will be posted in the official RO site soon.

Cheers!

P.S.

To non-bloggers out there, you might want to start learning how. You can start by making an account at http://www.blogger.com. Just let me know via YM or leave a comment on this post if you've made one and I'll gladly add you to my link list. Be sure to include the URL.

Nice, RO is really becoming a better place to play in. With all this new happenings all we need is one nice advertisement.

Gar.. it's funny I was about to make a Flyff Online Journal before. I had my online blog for a year and decided to make a separate one for Flyff. The idea fell like a noob in the broken bridge of Flaris.

I already have a blog... But I don't usually blog about RO. Can I just use that one? :D

Btw you're coming up with good ideas for the community here. :) Glad to see RO's being taken care of, and that you're making things more transparent for us. :)

Carlo "Wauks" Ople said...

Sure, just make the blog and give me the URLs so I can include you in my list :)

Mike Abundo said...

Great idea! You can maximize the quality and promotional value of entries by making them follow Scoble's criteria for a blog.

Carlo "Wauks" Ople said...

Those are great tips! Thanks Mike.

hi Waukeen,

i have long wanted to create a blog primarily for RO, but never really got to doing it... until now...

when i read your post, i got the impression that you were talking about me [ok, not really ABOUT me, but you get the idea... hehehe] so, i immediately created one...

you can see my still-no-good blog over at http://www.haravata.com/ragnarok...

i am also inviting other people to be contributors, so if anyone wants to, all they need to do is register and they're off!!

/heh

ChrisH said...

hello, again...

do you by chance know where i can get the complete list and images of the RO smileys??

thanks,

Hi guys!

I'll update my links later. We're also finalizing the mechanics so you'll probably see it posted soon.

Thanks!

Is this things still in? I don't really have that super high-level character but if it's a blogger's competition, I could sure make one there, but could we use a forwarding url? with the .tk extension or the like?
