About Thankless Grind
So what's up with this site?

Thankless Grind was an idea that formed during countless coffee house conversations on the subject of video games. The creators Ian, Josh and Sam all have full time jobs in fields unrelated to video games, so what we can actually cover will be quite limited. We will never be able to compete with comprehensive news coverage of sites like Joystiq or Kotaku, the fully staffed review departments of gamespot or IG, or the in-depth features writers of Gamasutra. What we can do however is write our opinions on all of the above, and hopefully encourage our users to contribute as well.

What's your site built on?

As main developer of the site, I was adamant that I did not want to use Wordpress. Our eventual plans will stretch wordpress beyond what it's capable of, so I wrote the site software from scratch, albiet with the assistance of the Django Web Framework. - Ian
