I am sure, and hope, most of you are aware of our Xmas caption competition we announced a few weeks back giving everybody the chance to win some nice Arma Steam games donated by Nicholas.
We have already recieved a few hundred submissions and are enjoying them all very much.

However, as we promised earlier we will be giving away some more games!
Yes, you are reading it right! We are giving away even more games than the 3 Arma packages you can win already.
Jeza has been so kind to donate three additional games for us to give away!.

These games will be given away in a way we will decide after the Xmas caption competition has closed (26 december 2013 23:59:59). We might pick some random winners or we might choose the winners specifically, it all depends on what you, the community, send us.
Now for the prizes:
  1. FarCry 3
  2. Bioshock Infinite
  3. Dishonored

So, if you think you might be bored during the holidays and feel like getting a chance to win one of our nice games make sure to post your entry in the Armaholic Xmas caption competition thread.


And remember, the above games are additional prizes next to the ones we are already giving away:
  1. Arma X: Aniversary Edition
  2. Arma 2 complete collection
  3. Arma 3 Digital Deluxe Edition


What do you have to do?
    Use one or more of the images we provide below and add some caption to it. Thats all!
    The caption could be anything, just let your fantasy flow and submit your entry in this thread.


Rules:
  • You have until 26 december 2013 23:59:59 to submit your entry.
  • Anyone can submit as many entries as he/she wants.
  • Normal forum rules apply.
  • After the competition has closed we (Armaholic staff) will choose 3 winners. Armaholic staff and Armaholic team member are excluded from entering the competition!
  • Winners are simply choosen on the caption added, if we like the added caption best you will be one of the winners.
  • We will announce the winners as soon as possible after the closing of the competition and you will recieve your Steam gift code from Nicholas.

Important! Important!
Some of you submitted edited images and that is not allowed. Except for text you should not modify the images as that makes the competition unfair.
Everyone uses the same images and you can only edit them to add text to it!

As most of you will probably know soon the Arma 3 beta will be released (june 25 2013). The beta is the next step towards the full release of the Arma 3 game.
With this release of Arma 3 things seem to be going to change for the entire community.
Steam is nowadays required to be able to play the game. As a first step the Steam WorkShop will be introduced to be able to share your missions with the rest of the community and ultimately BI will probably move any community made content to the Steam WorkShop (still not confirmed but lets not hide our head in the sand).

All this might have an impact on Armaholic and what we will mean to the community in the future.
Right now all we can say is that we do not care so much about the whole discussion what this would mean for Armaholic.com as we can not influence any decision anyway and also lack any such wish.
In our opinion time will tell and if the community proves Armaholic has become absolete we will draw our own conclusion and move on to a different gaming community where our services are still appreciated by that community and the developer.

Of course it is also possible all these changes will have a positive impact on our website! While it becomes really easy to install custom content to your game it might make the Arma community grow as the game gets more accesible to even those who have troubles installing any custom content.
And of course if the community grows and shows our website is still an appreciated source for all Arma related news we won't go anywhere.

So, now on to as to why this newsitem was written.
We have not been sitting on our hands the past few months, in fact we have already done a lot of work on the new Armaholic website which we hope to be able to release before the full Arma 3 release.
We have hired people to make new plugins/modules which will improve your experience on our website and we are working on a completely new Armaholic website which will be ready for the future and hopefully give all of you a better browsing experience.
With this new website come many features and improved features this current website lacks.
In order to recieve proper feedback right now we are not going to share what it is we have in store except one thing which has been bugging us for a long time:
    Control your own content!
    The new website will allow authors to edit their own pages when needed. This means authors are in full control over their own content. We can even allow groups to have access to specific pages so members of larger projects can all apply changes to the pages. Of course access to those pages is only given to those who need it and groups can decide for themselves with whom they share the login details.
    Of course our staff always has full control of all changes which are applied so if needed we can roll back to previous versions of the pages and fix other issues.
    People are able to add their own mirrors or, if wanted, they can have their own hosting space on our server.

So, now it is your turn!
We would like to hear from all of you which features you would like to see on Armaholic which will improve your experience on our website.
Really, anything you can think of which could improve our website is welcome!

Do you have any thoughts, have some cool ideas, know some features other sites have and would love to see that here too? Than make sure to post your suggestions in this thread:
