MSX Center officially launched

After some impressive scene efforts, among which even some MSXdev entries, the nice MSX-related surprises just keep popping up this year. A fresh site has just been officially launched that will dig deep into the ins and outs of our favourite home computer platform, under the just as concise as aptly chosen monicker "MSX Center".
Quite some tweaking and testing has been done in advance to make MSX Center a just as educational as it is in-depth experience that will surely enhance our appreciation of MSX and everything that comes with the territory.
MSX Center will offer MSX fans around the world things like reports on new developments and educational tutorials, as well as the opportunity to discuss matters with fellow enthusiasts, besides multi language support. The full purpose and mission of MSX Center is comprehensively explained right here.

I just can't say or write the word "monicker" anymore without thinking about this scene from Beauty Shop: ;)

Monika!
A standard like MSX needs many supporters, and it´s time to get a more attention in the scene. Nice initiative!
Of course it´s confusing to spread news and knowledge over more pages, but like MSX.PICS do for images, MSX center will find its niche. I hope they get a good start!

I hope so, too. MSX news, media or articles were never the monopoly of one particular site, nor should it be.
There luckily are others too (just as most countries have more than one newspaper), like the more Spanish language-based and awesome MSXBlog (please mind the automatic music player), and many other sites that report on retro news and/or MSX in particular.
By the way, did you just say what I thought you said? ;)

John: "Quite some tweaking and testing" and then the link is msxdev.org. I assume you meant some progress page/post on msx-center?

@ syn: Yup. Momma always warned me that doing 10 things at the same time when you're tired isn't a good idea. Wink Thanks for pointing it out. Couldn't remember the original link I intended there, but I replaced it with one dealing with the same relevant topic.

@ hamlet, Hey, it's the monicker. All the MSX sites, they're all mah n... I mean, monickers. Wink

Must be the same explanation MRC has to give when a news submitter asks when his article/upload is going to be published. Private life goes on as well. MRC is a team of 11 people who have the ability to publish. If I am correct MSX Center is only maintained by one person.
If "when will my news get published?" is already a frequently asked question at MRC I can imagine a one person site suffers the flow more.

I might be wrong, but it seems plausible.

Quite plausible indeed, but just a tad ehm... well... Just read the "So, why another MSX computer site" section here: https://www.msx-center.com/news/8/welcome-to-msx-center

As an MRC admin I try to stay positively neutral in this matter. Although, I do urge him to "hire" volunteers in order to not (have) become what he accuses MRC of to be.

And it's actually a shame. It was really off to a good start with some interesting & good looking stuff...
Ah well, there's always msx.org and msxblog.es Smile

There's not only articles on the site... But indeed, looks like it is a year ago that content was posted.

As Meits remarked, it seems almost impossible for an individual to keep such a venture alive.
Everyone who knows this situation will agree with me:

You know the solution, the way there is hard work.
