But that's the sign of a useful website!

Are there any websites dedicated to videogame writing?

I'm sure there are (if it exists, you can find it on the Internet) but I don't know of any.

Gamasutra is the only one that comes to mind. It has blogs on all aspects of video game creation: http://www.gamasutra.com/. I am not sure how useful it is though.
Play more STO Foundry! (You can thank me later.)

i wanted to ask about explosion triggers in my mission, but the ugc site seems to be down.

I needed to know how to make the explosion happen AFTER the last required action in my interior bridge map. I've found the explosions in the list but I can't figure out how to trigger them :/

Keep them invisible until you either reach a marker or when a dialog is finished .

Something like that, yes. Try to play a bit with it on an empty map using either triggers or dialogs. This way you can experiment a bit with this type of fx.
