    Hi chaps,

    Would any of you guys be interested in us creating a gaming content aggregator site (i.e. N4G/newsnow style) for all the Eurogamer run/partnered sites? We're at the point where we're working with lots of different of sites producing a helluva lot of content and wondered whether having a central jump-off point would be useful (or not)...

    If so, what kind of features would you like to see/not see on it?

    Cheers,

    Rupert

    I'd use it. A good central source for everything rather than having to visit several websites is always good.

    I actually just use the links at the bottom of the forum, otherwise I'd have to leave the forum page and clearly that would never happen!

    Hi rauper

    I'd say yes but then again I occasionally just use the links (to Gi.biz, VG247, RPS) at the bottom of every forum page. So it's not essential for me at least.

    I would quite like that I generally have about about 8 pages open on my iPhone at once I guess that would help

    I'd say yes but I'm never quite sure what the difference between an an aggregator and a crocodile is?

    Another yes from me. I never visit other gaming sites anyway. They're too scary!

    That does seem like it would be handy in work, and having an alligator in there must be mandatory

    I'm actually more interested in alligators than aggregators.

    I don't mind walking it

    I would prefer less content and greater quality instead of a site aggregating a lot of information that is of no interest or is nothing more than gossip.

    I thought vg247 was your aggregator-site?

    That's more of a quick-fire news blog, Shirley?

    yeah, VG247 doesn't announce every time EG or RPS have posted a new article

    Any alligator site should also update like a live blog! Refreshing webpages is so 2010!
