Editing and Tagging Games

If you have submitted a game for Hydra, you now have the ability to edit it. Head to the Run a Larp page, and select your game from the Games submitted menu (you must be logged in to see this).  Or, if your game has been approved, you can edit it from the game's detail page.

Genres can now be added to your games as tags. Tags are separated with spaces - a new tag will be created for each word. If you wish to use multi word tags, use the underscore_format. The underscores will be replaced with spaces in the game detail view. Feel free to tag with any genre you think will be useful for hydra attendees to filter by (see the Games page).

Games have just started to go up. Head over to the Games section and take a look. If you are interested in running a game at hydra, either submit a game, or get in touch.

If you are running a game at Hydra and have teasers or photos you would like to share, get in touch -  we can put them in the slider above. Likewise, if you have any photos that you don't mind sharing from past Hydras, it would be good to hear from you.

New Website

You may have noticed the site looks a little different.  Its now running on Silverstripe. This should make the website much easier to maintain in the long run, and gives those entering content much more control. It hasn't been smoke tested yet, so please do report any bugs you encounter. I hope there is nothing too major, and we can iron them out over time.  

Because of the requirements of Silverstripe, we have also changed our hosting (and thus, our domain name).  We are now hosted with Digital Ocean
