Who Is GaelicGaming?!

We are a community of primarily Irish League of Legends gamers, which began as a simple but popular facebook group "This is Irish League of Legends. However, as the numbers on the group increased, it was evident that a facebook group would no longer suffice for such a large population. The community requires streaming & lessons support, a forum, a team and a website to adapt to this incline of new members.

As a result, Cormac Haydon also known as comedic youtuber "FatUglyAutist" created GaelicGaming.com to facilitate for these needs.

 

What We Need & What You Get

The mission is to create a high-class website so that it will be able to sustain itself in the future. Therefore I wish to invest an initial budget of €1000. I, Cormac Haydon have already funded €300 of this. At the moment all that I currently own, is the domain. To complete the website, I will be going to an experienced third party for web and graphic design, but other costs such as server costs and IndieGoGo fees are included. The final result will be a high quality website, forum, along with gaming and communication servers.

 

Questions & Answers

We appreciate all feedback, and are happy to answer your questions in regards to our goals.

 

 I can read what the project wants to get, forums and a website. But what is it actually offering? What is the goal here. I can make a sub-reddit in minutes ( this facebook group has its own subreddit) I can make a forum in ten minutes, and across Facebook or Google + there is the options of having a group. What is this project aiming to achieve?

The administration team has agreed that the group no longer suffices as good enough for the sheer volume of posts and traffic we get in the group. It has become difficult to moderate, as we haven't enough room to showcase our important topics. Therefore we agreed that a forum would improve this. However as interest in providing lessons, streaming, tournaments and potentially an Irish team has arisen, we found that a forum alone wouldn't cut it either. We wish to make the website attractive so that it can soak up some of the traffic from here, and to make it appealing to post on, unlike the subreddit where there was little to no benefit in posting.

 

 I'm wondering what do you see this site being and providing in lets say, six months after launch?

What you can expect in 6 months is an established website, similar in design to http://clgaming.net/ but providing:

  • Gaming Articles from Irish writers
  • Promotion of Irish streamers
  • An area that provides lessons from Ireland's best players
  • Promotion of LoL conventions and tournaments within Ireland
  • Development of an Irish eSports team
  • A forum for everyone.

While I believe that the main goal of the website is to provide and benefit for the Irish community, the forum will be open to anyone interested in our community.
