Sounds awesome! I frequent velocity quite a bit now I have almost beaten the record for platformer game lvl.1
I hope you keep the old posts or convert them to blog topics with comments. I think it might be a good move to move away from forums, though. I might be biased since I run a forum but a lot of smaller sites that starts side by side with larger ones tend to not have an high level of activity, so the move to a blog to showcase people projects and such things might help making it stand out. The tag thing is something I wanted to implement on CW but we would still keep the forum system (just that it would work closer to PICO-8 forums rather than a traditional bulletin board, and we would keep the bulletin board system in place as an option for people who don't like the new system).As for the random stranger thing, yeah it's a good move to not go full Omegle, else get ready for massive troll influxes. >.<
SOmething to keep in mind though is that if your blog suddenly becomes very popular due to certain type of video games, then that alone can bring in trolls, so it's up to you to decide how to enforce rules. On Omnimaga when nDoom got featured it brought in a massive influx of spammy or troublesome users from hardcore gaming news sites and eventually we had to instate temporary modified rule enforcement to fend them off (although we would probably not have gotten to do it if certain people who were not involved in the first place got involved and constantly tried to force us to run our site the way they run theirs. The latter was like if they tried using oil to extinguish the fire or to keep it alive while we tried extinguish it.But at first you are probably not gonna get comments much, so it's best to focus on content and showcasing your content elsewhere (like here) to increase traffic.
Do you think you'll have some screenshots early?
You could upload them at img.omnimaga.org unless the new site will take months to be public, in which case it's up to you if you want to create hype too early or not. We can give suggestions on design/layout, though.
