TheRedbelt.com

I reserved a new domain name for my blog. www.theRedbelt.com
After some thought, I decided that getting a .com domain is significantly better than getting an unknown country extension (like .cc or .tv). Thanks to Ammar for his suggestion.

I don't think gaming news will be a great idea, competition will kill your site, since you don't have direct access to news sources and the gaming scene sucks in Bahrain ;)

Well mohammed,
Not gaming "News" as much as opinions and insights. You know, gaming is an industry like any other, read what I wrote before to have an idea.
Besides, because the gaming scene here "Sucks" is more of a reason to start writing about it. Wouldn't gamers here need a focal point? a club? a website with local perspective? Just a thought.
The question is, would you, mohammed issa, be interested in this?

suggestion? dude, it wasn't a suggestion. i'm expecting a sort of commission or something.

Redbelt said...

OK Ammar.
the actual balance of this transaction was -$6.99 (seeing as I paid this).
I'll be generous and give you a 10% commission. That will be -$0.699 which is around Two hundred & Fifty fils.
I expect you to pay me in no longer than a week's time.
Regards,

It'll be great, but it'll need effort and dedication.
You can host or schedule deathmatches, start gaming servers...
Good luck, I'm looking forward :)

my services rendered are worth so much more.

Hosting matches or acting as a club in anyway needs first the gathering of gamers here. I don't think the "build it and they will come" approach would work. So I am basically probing this community, but to be frank, they do not seem very active at all.

heres a quote for you to think about: "build it and they shall come"

I'm talking out of experience here.
I did, but they didn't.

People in Bahrain are so stuck at the bottom rungs of Maslo's Pyramid.
