Wikia is falling out of favour here at HQ. The site is not particularly attractive on a web browser, and when using a mobile device visitors are bombarded with adverts. Advert bombardment is not really in tune with the whole ethos of the Armadaverse — no, we're more about missiles.
The benefit of Wikia is that it's a free, open Wiki platform. It makes it very easy to maintain a large database of information which is cross-linked. The information could be replicated on this very site, in the Universe section, but that will be time-consuming and laborious.
So the question falls to you, the community: stick or twist?
It's a first for the Armadaverse: a reader survey!
This blog post is extra special: it's one which you can use to outline your response to the current Armada Wars books — and the forthcoming episode, The Ravening Deep — without all the pesky nonsense which goes with writing comments.
Basically, because we can.
The survey won't collect any information about you; it only sends the selected options and any text you type in. Read on to give your answers!
In the same week that Mashable reported on the failure of Google+ and predicted its quiet demise, the "Armada Wars Official" page was verified and given a custom URL.
The question of course is... what to do with it.
Does anyone out there really use Google+ for following (and interacting with) brands? Leave a comment if you have strong feelings one way or the other.
As part of this major upgrade to a standalone web site, there is now an email newsletter signup page (under 'About' in the main menu), suited to people who don't obsessively follow blogs, sites, Facebook and Twitter.
Unless something extraordinary happens in the Armadaverse (e.g. film rights being optioned), newsletters will be occasional (probably one a month, at most). They will contain actual news, not a bunch of ad copy, and will not plague your inbox.
