Make the site simplier

Post by abyss »

I think when you click on a game in the all games menu it should give a direct link to the game.

The thing is that the site already has NO pop-ups and the advertisement is kept to a minimum level. If emmzee would do as you say he'd probably loose a lot of the money addvertising brings(which btw I don't think it's much).
And come on... How hard is it to just click again to download the game? :rolleyes:

Yeah,right.
I was.
But i didn't ask obvious questions.

Some time before there was an thread Death Rally.

Here:
http://www.dosgames.com/forum/viewtopic ... eath+rally

You see how much n00bs being posting to give them the full game despite being told dozen time that the game is being sold?
Thanks god wally closed the thread.
So you don't have to tell me about n00bs asking or anything related to n00bs. :rolleyes:

Hehe you are all noobs since you're talking about something you know shit of.

I don't know much about dosgames.com but emmzee once told me that not only the content of his website was oldskool, but also the coding. It would take him a lot of time to put everything in a database or to recode the site with all the html coded pages.

Oh and by the way Larry, if emmzee changes it it would give him more revenues since there are more pages. A lot of websites on the internet are pop-up free so I don't think that makes dosgames.com a one of its kind, and imho the advertisements aren't kept to a minimum..

But it's still less advertisement than ANY other download-old-games site I've visited :laugh:

Also I know about the trouble with the games database but this only backs up all I've said that it is better to remain as is, without changes! :thumbsup:
