    Seeking two partners for online gaming project

    *Mod Request, I am sorry if this post is in the wrong section - If you need to move it - feel free to do so*

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Julian and I am 23 from New Jersey. I am seeking two individuals to start a project online around the gaming scene.

    If you are a gamer, specifically PC or XBOX, than this message would be especially interesting to you. I am looking for serious people though around 18+ though.

    Now, I know without a business plan it is hard to find good people but my focus here is to find some good people with similar goals and interests to myself. Obviously, a good amount of money is a primary factory in any project, however, depending on skills I can not afford to pay someone that may just take the money and leave, especially early in the project.

    I am trying to start a project, a form of a gaming community. Not no boring, dull, crappy common community that you see everywhere that targets one game. But a community that can bring many different gamers together for a specific purpose. My ideas, incorporate Achievement Hunter Type videos with a mix of red vs blue and using my pro tip videos in counter strike that are flying around the internet if you are a counter strike player, you seen it.

    We had a forum for just Counter Strike that made it to the top 150k websites but we had a problem with the guy managing the site, who disappeared(Some think he was arrested). Regardless of that, I am trying to get this project bigger than what is was before. We had an IP Boards forum, that had both free and paid people subscribing to it for different benefits.

    I have connections to many gaming companies such as Alienware or Maingear as well as Professional Gamers in MLG, WCG, and CGS(when it was alive).

    The money aspect of things, was hopefully going to be collected through things like adsense on the website and on my youtube videos, as well as any donations and if do the paid members idea to help fund the project and give yourself something for your dedication. Also every now and than can get things from the companies above for giveaways or if hardware is required, they are iffy on random hardware for people that may just leave that helped with the project so its a trust/dedication thing for that.


    Constructive Criticism is appreciated. I do understand that because I cannot offer any straight payment options that it will be hard to find good people to partner on this project with me. But anyone that has the same dedication, patience, and motivation as myself will notice a benefit very soon. Plus, this can be start of something big and very fun to do.

    NOTE: I have access to many servers and domains. The company I work for is a networking company. I have access to countless servers to use for this project so domain and hosting is covered. I also have a reseller account to get any website domain for free so there is no issue there.

    I AM VERY SERIOUS ABOUT THIS PROJECT AND CAN GET IN MORE DETAIL. I DO NOT WANT TO WASTE ANY TIME WITH PEOPLE THAT ARE IMMATURE AND SNEAKY. TRUST IS A HUGE THING, ESPECIALLY FROM EXPERIENCE PLAYING ON TOP LEVELS OF COMPETITIVE GAMING. Please be respectful and considerate and I can promise this will go well.

    What I am looking for:

    Webmaster


    A person that knows how to create websites and/or get a site up and running. (I provide the services) I have ideas on things for the site but do not know how much experience and time and skill it takes to get it working. Features like, point systems on a forum, for example, per post that can be used to collect prizes and hardware that I have. The kind of code for the site to know does not matter but I hope it is something that can be very easily changed to accommodate new features. I am sure down the line when a stable income is coming in, we can use a database feature or something. WE DO NOT NEED TO MAKE A SITE FROM SCRATCH, I CAN BUY TEMPLATES, however if it is easier and it can be done, we can discuss that.

    Video Editor

    Although I know not to look here for this type of person but who knows what we may run across. This person must know how to edit videos together from footage that I have to get. Nothing amazing but the quality has to look perfect. HD h264 type quality so there is no static on youtube. These videos will also be on the site. Programs old video makers used were Sony Vegas and After Effects. (Photoshop but not necessary)

    -- I have a lot of support from 30-50 gamers that would be active on the site, however most of them are 14-20. The older ones do not have any experience to help with the site or videos but would be helping with advertising and such. Dedicated gamers they are, haha.

    If your interested you can reply back.

    www.youtube.com/thereallegacy for examples of videos that will help bring traffic.

    Found a video editor and web programmer -- anyone else interested, feel free to chat with me live. Just reading the post above may give the wrong idea. Easier to talk and get an idea directly.

    Our focus right now is a forum than site once I can get 2 more companies to put some money into the project.

    *Game servers may come up as a result as well, so if your a gamer that may be a plus*

    Hey Legacy I am VERY interested in this idea. I have worked at GamingAhead.com for about 5 years as a General Manager and PS3 Platform Admin (It's a gaming website). I have a lot of knowledge in gaming and friends that would help out/visit the site a lot. I don't know a lot about coding but I am very good at doing busy work and running ladders and the whole nine yards. If your interested feel free to PM me or just post on here again and I will check it out.

    Please be of appropriate age and not lie about positioning. Contracts are written up for sponsors and the like and any lying will cost the whole project. Thank You.

    I can't edit the main post anymore but Video Editor was found. Thank you for all the posts on that particular position. Webmaster is the only one left. We use IPboards as our forums right now.

    www.envision-gaming.net is the URL -- subject to change. I started this up myself but REALLY need a good coder to take control. We can discuss payment as well, but just like many companies that have became big, trust is never there if money is the lead motivation factor.

    Do you have any specific examples of how money compromised trust between principals in a start-up that made it big?

    I tend to think that a agreement between total strangers, such as what you're looking for, needs something like money to enforce trust between the strangers. If this is a proper business venture then money is the primary objective. The moment a business doesn't concern itself with making money, that business dooms itself to failure.

    You have a good point, but I feel you took it out of context. I understand people are strangers when looking for help online when no one in person has the knowledge AND desire at the same time to work on similar interests.

    Google for example was started up with an idea of two people together but they knew each other. Blizzard started up with three individuals with same idea and goal with a game company. Youtube was three people that worked together at PayPal.

    Though, in each scenario one guy knew coding for a site but had the same interest as the others (and recruited appropriate staff). Money soon followed I am sure with each putting their own into the project.

    Money can be discussed in terms of this project since it is becoming hard to find anyone with similar interests that are not kids lying about information. Good thing about this is mostly everything is already started and moving along just really need to fix up the bugs.

    I am putting all my time outside of my full time job into this so it is not like it is not serious with a few others that are working with video editing and photo design. Only spot that is not filled is the website portion.

    I hope to find a very serious person as well to put in any amount of time or even maybe help if they do not want too. One of the most honest in the gaming community for those that follow. Just looking for someone 20+ due to experience and age. I can even meet in person if necessary.

    And I also dint mean MONEY MAKING from the project itself as a motivational factor, I meant someone just looking for a quick job to make money and leave when they get a chance too. Those are the people that are hard to trust. That is why I am seeking someone with same interest but also want to make money as a job in the future.

    Well my personal skills is just using my name in the gaming communities and popularity on youtube to get people interested. www.youtube.com/thereallegacy

    I merged with another community that had everything here listed and after a few months of things working really well, someone sabotaged the site and servers and basically split the community. Time and effort wasted trying to get it back up where it was but this project idea is over with. Couple of thousand came in monthly but to have to pay a little bit to every person and still pay some costs to sponsored servers, just wasnt working.

    However, I am now trying a new project separate idea all together and partnered with a c++ coder on making a 2d mmorpg game, hopefully get it on steam is the goal and from there, sky is the limit. Trying to get another coder to help the first one now.

    Mod can close this thread, I will create a new post for the game seeking a coder or if someone that is interested and reading this, send me a message.
