Logo Artist: Studios Zen
NEM is a new e-gaming community with a strong focus on competition / media. Carnage came to me with an ambitious project, and I am glad he had so much energy for this! It is awesome when the site owner really wants something different / unique for themselves (I love the challenge).
NEM utilizes the twitch api, enjin api, youtube api, various module harvests and my custom data center (custom site json trees).
Here are my personal favourite features:
The Home page gallery
As seen in the main header image of this post, there is a pretty custom gallery(code less). This gallery is built from the bootstrap carousel, manipulated with jquery and made simple via the data center.
The news page
The news page uses the enjin api, whereas the home page is just a module harvest. We are using pagination from the api to dictate how many articles are displayed per page. Just like the home page, we show a quick view video button for posts with videos, while not losing the link functionality of the thumbnails.
Forum API Features
The forum was in fact heavily styled / manipulated, but the coolest feature is the use of the enjin api. Now, these features only display if you are logged in, but it is still very cool. If a streamer is online, you can get your stream popup right in the forums (checks every minute). You can also view the gt of the said user...which is pretty convenient for those clans having difficulty connecting due to enjin id ≠ gt.
I can write an essay on the features put into this site, but you really gotta check it out for yourself...or join their community!
