Anook Beta 1.4 online!

Hey everybody,

we have uploaded a new update for Anook this morning! The majority of our development time was needed to further improve our infrastructure to handle the increased traffic and new sign ups, but there are still some really cool additions to the site.

We have worked a lot on the feed, which now loads new content as you scroll down, aggregates similar stories like "new followers", can be sorted by ratings in games and loads comments and attached links way faster. Large screenshots can now be expanded to view in full detail.

We also spent some time overhauling our email templates, so why not send some messages, follow new people or invites friends to check out the new design -- Oh and inviting your friends will now also give you a little Anook supporter batch next to your name on your profile, which you can see here: @Koilie, @YOUNGBAE or @GosuNudge.

Thank you for all your suggestions, we tried to get as much done as possible. Please don't be discourage if your feature idea is not in yet - it may already be ready in the next weeks ;)

If you encounter any bugs, please tell us in the forums or via private message!

See you on Anook,


Anook Beta Version 1.3.2 online!

Hey guys,

we have just updated the website with some bug fixes and visual improvements. Nothing big this time, but I still wanted to take the time to thank everyone for your feedback and suggestions. I think Anook is coming along great and that's because of you beeing a part of this community!

From now on we will keep track of sign up referrals from email invites and badges - we are not really sure what to do with it yet, but we want to give credit where credit is due and will come up with something cool. So go ahead invite everyone you know to join Anook and make this site even better.

See you on Anook,


Anook Beta Version 1.3.1 online!

Hey guys,

we have just uploaded another small update for Anook.

You can now change your email notification settings in your account and we introduce our new and shiny profile badges, which you can add to external websites and forums! We want to add more customization options for the badges in the future, but for now you can choose between three different layouts:

The basic version:

Basic Version

The small game fame version:

Badge Version 1

And ofc my favorite, the big game fame version:

Badge Version 2

You can find all embed codes here.

We are very happy about every badge you share with the world and would love to see some case studies... so add your badge to your Twitch profile or guild forum and share the link in the comments!!

As always, thanks for your support!!!

Anook Beta Version 1.3 online!

Hey everyone,

the new beta update for Anook is now live. This version introduces the base implementation of our fame ranking, a new gaming identity for Team Fortress 2, nook improvements as well as tons of small updates.

Creating game relevant content on Anook now generates fame for the contributor. The amount of fame you gain is depending on your contribution's reach and impact. You can check out other authors' game fame on their picture in the feed or have a look at the fame log for any game. Fame decreases over time, so you have to be an active member of the community to stay on top.

We also started working on further nook improvements. Admins can now upload their own banner and customize the nooks sidebar widgets and remove unused apps like forum, wall or blog. The new app system allows us to add new features super fast in the future, so you are going to see a lot of new stuff coming to your nooks soon.

Blog posts can now be tagged and there is a cool blog post widget for your nook's sidebar. 

And don't forget to add your Team Fortress 2 gaming indetity.

We will continue to improve this build with small updates in the following days, but we couldn't wait any longer to give you guys a first look of update 1.3. We already have plans for really cool fame badges to show off your swag on other websites.

Thank you all for your support!
