We're just a bit over 72 hours into the public launch of MMOPulse and so far we've gotten amazing feedback and support from all corners of the MMORPG community. Here is my report on all that has happened with our website in that time and the changes made in lieu of your feedback.
Before we get started, I want to give special thanks to the following people/groups for significantly helping MMOPulse during our site's first three days.
Fevir - sharing MMOPulse to his community
En Masse Entertainment - first giveaway on the site (Closers)
Pai, X ツ, Samael, Dausu, Sun - high quality MMO character submissions
X ツ - large amount of feedback
Thank you to all of our readers and those that gave feedback!

Oddly enough, a common question we’ve received is “why does the site not have any ads? How are you making any revenue?” Simply put, we don’t need them at the moment to keep everything running smoothly, so we don’t have them. I know how annoying ads can be, so MMOPulse will likely stay that way for a while unless our audience rate demands a better hosting service. I do hope that our site gains enough traction that we will eventually need ads to support costs of improving hosting plans, premium plugins and security. However, when we do bring ads to the site, they will always be minimal and never intrusive.
There have been concerns regarding little difference between MMO sections and MMORPG section. There will be clear differences when more games have been added.
