Welcome to BLUMAN.net! This is still a work in progress but definitely a step up from the last version which was far from dynamic. I've decided to follow a generic layout that resembles Bootstrap, without using Bootstrap or any other content delivery network. The page's various layouts all depend on the device you're using, screen width and occasionally the visible theme will change according to the time of day or during a particular season/event in the year.
I've been roped into graphics and development for as long as I can remember. Starting out with creating custom Bebo skins in MS Paint and personalising Piczo pages, I stumbled across code development when I was still in primary school playing games like Runescape and Habbo. I knew how to properly configure forums and create basic pages when I was around 10 years old or younger, however as I got older I slowed down with it. Although I'm aware I don't know as much as any other person would who's been doing it for the same amount of time or less, I'm happy with what I know about so far and don't have any plans to get into it full time.

All the content and graphics you can see here and elsewhere are created solely by me, with the exception of a few obvious things (css backgrounds in different themes), which have been sourced from Google. Each page expands and collapses accordingly and I've added thumbnails to most of the projects I could fish out or still have lingering around. The graphics section utilises PHP scripts which populates images from a directory, which means I don't have to keep track of updating them!
I vaguely remember reviving the project sometime around 2010 but by then the fanbase was long gone. I've searched the internet for as much information as I could find and luckily enough there are archives of the project, both in it's Piczo state and custom Webs layout.
NOTE: Not everything will be viewable or interactive.
The community had a decent enough launch and I was originally brought along as a Game Admin and Faction Management. I implemented a realistic military theme to the server, yet tried to tie it in with the real-life aspects as much as possible. Around December 2012 I was inducted into Management and assigned as the Head of Web Development and Graphics Design. During my tenure I brought a unique feel to the forums and opened many possibilities with user interaction such as custom vBulletin PHP variables. The majority of the graphics, themes and designs seen around LGG was purely my own and I implemented one of the first user control panels to merge in-game stats, staff and faction abilities all in one integration.
Sometime in mid-2013 a very trusted administrator removed mine, Loco's and Shields' powers and literally performed a coup d'etat on the community. To this day, we're not sure who was really helping them or why but I do know one thing - the server didn't last more than two months. Afterwards, I returned to NGG and more or less forgot LGG even existed.
Everything will be built up from the ground and will be the first time I properly work on an advanced user system which will, in turn, include staff ranks and cool features such as personal banners and images when commenting or interacting with other users.
