A year ago this month, the ARGN site was launched. What started as a makeshift forum to cover when Yahoo Groups went down has become the premiere network of independent Alternate Reality Gaming sites. Combined with affiliates Unfiction, Cloudmakers, DeadDrop, ARG Planet and Martha’s Boarding House, ARGN sites have a combined membership of almost 10,000 people from around the globe!
It’s hard to believe it’s been a year already. After beginning by providing player forums for Search4E, ARGN’s forums went on to grow and survive a shill controversy, huge traffic from being featured on the Push Nevada site, and even a Denial of Service attack (we must be doing something right!). Since June of 2002, ARGN has received over 22 million hits.
Over the last year, ARGN has hosted PM chats, interviewed folks behind the gaming scenes, and has been featured in numerous publications, such as the New York Times and Slashdot.
So it’s been quite a busy year, thanks to all of you. And the best is yet to come! We have some very cool things planned for this next year, things you definitely won’t want to miss, so stay tuned!
Thanks a lot, everyone! Here’s to another great year
