Smile Launched www.משחקים.com (Games in Hebrew).

Hello,

Today I launched www.משחקים.com www.xn--cebemb0ck.com (Games in Hebrew).

Would love to hear any comments you have.

Adapting the script to Hebrew and content translation took much longer than what I had expected.

Daily updates are adding translated content to the site.

Thanks!

Looks great! Fantastic Job! Are you going to put the word out in Israel or just use the existing type in traffic.

Re: Launched www.משחקים.com (Games in Hebrew).

Thank you all for your kind comments!

Before I "put the word out" in Israel I would like to finish the translation, a job that doesn't seem to end.

I'm aware of the reloading of the flash header and the sound. I could cancel the sound it makes… is it really annoying?

Re: Launched www.משחקים.com (Games in Hebrew).

I had my sound turned of when i visited. :p

But my opinion is any sound that i have not opted to start is annoying. Definitely if it repeats etc.

Re: Launched www.משחקים.com (Games in Hebrew).

I have to disagree with the sound options. I think that part of a gamers experience is with the sound. Gamers tend to love bells and whistles on a webpage.
I think a simple sound off / on option might be a good
I would try and add a forum of some sort to this page. This will keep the user coming back plus attract friends.
Just a thought.

Hi lipps,

The flash menu loads each time a page is loaded or reloaded. Do you think I should keep it as is?

“Gamers tend to love bells and whistles” I agree with that, that’s why I selected this template.

Thanks!

Re: Launched www.משחקים.com (Games in Hebrew).

My thought is yes and I may take some flack on this but it gives a reference as to where one is at and provides a way to return to the home page. I could see the sound getting bothersome but the simple on off would allow for the user to decie if they want to have sound or not.

Take a look at pogo.com one of the biggest game sites on the net. You may get more ideas from them.

Yes ads and cellular content (ringtones cellular games download etc). I’ll add the ads once traffic builds up.

Re: Launched www.משחקים.com (Games in Hebrew).

Great job Dave!

Also I'm probably not very observant usually, but that's the first time I've noticed a RTL language site logo being displayed like com.משחקים
.

It works, but extremely awkward for me. I've mentioned this before with RTL. Still... it works .

Re: Launched www.משחקים.com (Games in Hebrew).

The dot right to the “com” looks awkward for us, but for native speakers of Hebrew and Arabic it looks fine. Hopefully in year from now the “com” would be aliased to “קום”.

Re: Launched www.משחקים.com (Games in Hebrew).

Very nice site.
I think that the logo should show משחקים.com (.com on the right)
בהצלחה
