Oh, the times they are indeed a changin’.
This weekend is a pretty big deal for everyone at No High Scores. This is the weekend everything gets ported over to WordPress. Yes, we’re leaving the days of Drupal behind us and moving on to something a trifle more user friendly.
What does this mean?
If all goes according to plan it will mean:
- Better tablet/phone browsing
- User avatars
- Significantly less spam as well as legit posts flagged as spam (although I’m still curiously interested in buying handbags and boots..)
- A completely new design for your viewing pleasure
- A quick method for us to post screenshot galleries
And that’s off the top of my head. I’m sure there’s more. But if all goes well come Monday (or maybe Sunday) you should see the new No High Scores live and ready.
Thanks for all of your support — without a reader base we’re just sort of talking to ourselves and I do that enough as is.

Hooray! Congratulations, and best wishes for many years of NHS to come! In my short time here, I’ve already learned a lot about what I like (and don’t like) in game design, and the NHS team’s features and reviews are a big part of that. You do great work, plain and simple, and I thank you. I’m on board for the ride, wherever it goes.
I think you guys are really going to like the new frames-based Web site. We’ve got a bright green banner with the No High Scores logo in flashing red Times New Roman. You guys like retro, right?
Comic Sans…all the time.
You guys going to put up a nice “Under Construction” animated gif up while you migrate?
I highly reccomend using Disqus plug in for your article commenting. It allows people to log in with their facebook, twitter, yahoo or open id. Has full moderation, white lists, black list and other features such as seeing mentions on twitter.
I have it implemented on my WP site and if you have any questions you can give me a shout.
Please make sure that you add music that nobody can turn off!
Looking forward to the changes. I’ve been having issues with the site on my phone, so I’ll be glad to be able to get my NHS fix on the go.
Ooh, ooh! And set every single video to autoplay!
I saw some articles without the author’s name. All I found was NHS Admin-somethin-somethin.
Are you guys gonna credit/byline the stories?
Yep, the old articles…maybe not. But we’ll be adding authors to the front page shortly.
(Look a sidenote!)
On a sidenote I’m digging the background and the old-school game logo you got rockin’ up at top. Now throw in a few more swears in your written pieces, show some leg – yeah, yeah that’s it – and you got yourself success boy.
