Today is the Official Launch date of the new K33N Gaming Community website! The project: "K33N Revive 2.0" got the name from what K33N used to be back in 2007. Background of K33N: Back in 2007, K33N was known as K33N Clan. 'K33N Clan' was a Xbox 360 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 exclusive competitive gaming clan until numbers grew. Once K33N grew in size and had a bigger variety of gamers, K33N Clan branched out to PC and hosted Minecraft and Teamspeak 2 servers. As time went on, K33N Clan slowly lost it's members due to majority of the group being younger and life priorities happening. Fast Forward to now (Late 2016): A few "founders" (Original K33N Clan 07' members) Scj312, and myself got thinking what if we revived and brought back the k33n clan with a new name! After holding a 3 day poll on social media, the winning votes picked out as you can tell by now, K33N Gaming Community as the new branded name. Our first site was a simple wordpress site that lacked content. With our Revive project and revamp of the webste we wanted brand new, modern and slick, simple and clean, and of course K33N colors. After about 2 months of planning, designing and drawing wireframes, we built the brand new site that you now see here today! K33N Gaming's New Website - Release Notes Some of the key things/features we implemented that are brand new here at K33N include: A brand new Logo with added FavIcon which is also Mobile Icon friendly Brand new custom design/layout (by HoldenRiot), and functionality/implementation (by Scj312) using Invision Power Board.
