Google Friend Connect

This morning I added a Google Friend Connect gadget to the site. I had to fiddle around with the theme a bit, but in the end it turned out pretty nice. So, what is Google Friend Connect?

Google Friend Connect allows site visitors to log into the member using an existing account (Google, Yahoo, AIM or Open ID). Then you can invite other people to join you at the site, see other visitor’s profiles and additional gadgets allow more interaction between the visitors of a site. It reminds me a bit of Yahoo’s MyBlogLog, a feature you probably have seen on some of the blogs here on the network.

Michael Wolf is a German games designer and enthusiast best known for his English language role-playing games blog, Stargazer's World, and for creating the free rules-light medieval fantasy adventure game Warrior, Rogue & Mage. He has also worked as an English translator on the German-language Dungeonslayers role-playing game and was part of its editorial team. In addition to his work on Warrior, Rogue & Mage and Dungeonslayers, he has created several self-published games and also performed layout services and published other independent role-playing games such as A Wanderer's Romance, Badass, and the Wyrm System derivative Resolute, Adventurer & Genius, all released through his imprint Stargazer Games. Professionally, he works as a video technician and information technologies specialist. Stargazer's World was started by Michael in August 2008.

  1. I was running IE7 and the site bombs out on the Google Friend app. I can see everything but the Friend Connect stuff before a message box says it cannot load the site.
