From the very start we had a clear vision of who we were trying to benefit: gamers, gaming website owners and game makers. We strongly believe that without gaming websites there is not a growing gaming market. We also strongly believe many aggregation websites benefit for themselves at the cost of the content provider. Our goal is to create a scenario where both the aggregation website and the website owner benefit mutually.

-Submit Content Quickly & Easily – We have the fastest and most advanced content submitter. This is great for website owners submitting content manually since it saves time and reaches a wider audience. We also allow website owners to submit content without prior approval, however submissions will be subject to “quality control.”

-Auto Submit/Collect Content – Website owners can get approved for auto aggregation of their site's content. This means we will create a custom bot that will be built around each individual website with options the owner has control over. It will automatically go to the website and collect the data storing and displaying it in the proper categories and sub-categories. This will save lots of time versus submitting the content by hand each and every time. 
-Auto Collect And Display Options - We know the more you do the less time you have for things like submitting your content. Websites approved for auto collect will have options such as:
Amount of content to collect
How often to collect
How long to keep the content
Tweets, the content with @ on the site's Twitter
Options to show selected content as featured or suggested by the website your account is for.
Other options that cannot be determined before full launch. If you have suggestions please email us. 

-Visual Voting Display - An up/down vote button similar to Facebook, Twitter and others. This will allow on-site users help off-site content do better on our network which helps the website owner and their network both in profit and in growth. It is possible to even give points for users viewing a page to help it grow on our site but this will depend on the level of funding we achieve.
-Processed and Raw Statistical Data – Access to this data will help game websites provide better service to gamers by being more in touch with their audience while they are growing. Websites need to know what new games are trending in order to keep pace with current tastes in the gaming community. This data will be available in a way that is easy to understand and use.

-Your Social Network Links - We will Display social networking follow/like links on all single page posts to help promote both social networking for both websites and mobile apps. 

-Profit Sharing Option - This is by far one of the biggest and best features for gaming websites. This option allows for the content creators to make profit from content shared on our network. This will help both small and large websites get what is fair.

 We want to level the playing field and give new games and indie game makers a platform to help distribute and publicize their games. Approved game creator accounts (anyone that is verified) have "creator" status that allows them to add content without prior approval and live in real time. 

-Add ANY game FREE of cost.
-Ability to add to and change “about game” settings on the category main page such as release dates and platforms.

-Create contests based on games helping promote games/content.

-Alert Feature to allow notices to be sent to game website owners selected or gamers.

-Statistics to show information about games and categories.

-Add any type of content for the game. 
-Discovery feature allows gamers to find NEW or upcoming games they might like.

-Suggested games based on a learning algorithm that chooses games that a gamer might be interested in. 

-Add games/platforms or type of gaming content to get the best and highest quality content

We are trying to make the best gaming network for gamers gaming sites and game makers.  Please help us and donate today. you can also email us at the bottom. It cost a lot to create this software website app and all the amount of severs and resources that will be needed to crawl 100+ sites and offer all the above features for all the members will take a lot of time and hardware resources.

What we will use the money for:

65% For Software Programming
35% For Hardware like severs
15% For other experiences 

We have spent some of our own money to build this and need your help to fund the completion. 65% of all the money raised will go directly back into the site and mobile app for programmers cost. The other 35% will go to other costs of building the software such as hardware and software along with costs of graphic work and license fees. To offer all the futures and functions to lots of people this requires a LOT of hardware and a ton of programming time. To do all that we have said here will take a lot of time and a ton of sever resources to crawl and offer all these with a user friendly site without ads every where features. 

We know that if you are a gamer we can make a way better gaming experience for you!

Please Help and Donate today!

Risks and challenges

Many gamers play video games but never use gaming sites for a number of reason. Many gaming websites are having a harder time staying alive because networks like reddit are making massive profits off the gaming websites. The risk of not doing this project means gamers will have a bad user experience while the content creators get less and less from the content they created.

As with any medium to large scale project there will always be some challenges that threaten the production of the time table. One of the most important aspects of development is to properly account for what needs to be done how to do it and how long it will take.

It should take us 4-6months to complete this project. In that time there will be time when the app and site are in beta mode, so please provide all the feedback you can at this stage. If things go smooth we should have it ready for public use 4 months after the funding is complete.

As we continue to grow and develop, we will be sure to keep you updated on the progress and activities of the movement. Thank again for your support and contact us anytime at therealsteveogameo@gmail.com !. We would love to hear from you!
