About Us

What is GamingSmart?

GamingSmart is a US based site which provides gaming related content – such as gaming tools, guides, and studies. We specifically specialize in sensitivity converters, eDPI calculators, informational guides, as well as product guides.

Our primary mission at GamingSmart is to help visitors improve their gaming skills. Whether that’s through our sensitivity tools, our gaming guides, or even our studies & data; we simply hope to give people what they’re in need of so that they can ultimately be a better player and or have a better gaming experience.

Aside from our primary goal of helping gamers improve, we do also hope to entertain and or educate people through our exclusive studies that we conduct.

How we started

GamingSmart was originally created back in the middle of 2019. At the time, the sole focus of the site was to be about showcasing the settings & setups of Esports pros. Back then, the site also went by a different name, “FortSettings”. After some time, we realized that specific area of expertise wasn’t really our strong suit, so we decided to transition the site to have a new purpose. This new purpose would be to help people player better through sensitivity tools (such as converters & calculators) as well as informative guides & studies. Along with this new purpose came a new name, “GamingSmart”. The idea behind the name GamingSmart is that by coming to our site and using our useful content, you are literally “gaming smarter” than you otherwise would.

The reason behind the big change over, as previously mentioned, was because we didn’t find providing settings & setups to be our forte. However we did find a new niche that was not only interesting to us, but lacking in content. This niche would be the gaming tools, guides, and studies niche. After a lot of contemplation, we decided to finally transition the site over to being what it is now.

Who we are

As of right now, the team at GamingSmart consists of just a few people, yet the majority of the site is run by only one person:

Hi, that’s me, Manning Taylor. I’m the owner and founder of GamingSmart. I’m also an avid gamer, and that’s pretty much why I started this site in the first place – because it is based around something I enjoy.

I’ve been playing competitive and shooter games for over a decade now, and have well over 10,000+ hours in them. I’ve also always been quite tech savvy, so starting a website wasn’t too difficult of a task to do.

I basically created this website from scratch, and I still mange it fully till this day. In the early days of the site, it was only getting a dozen or two views per day. Since then, I have scaled this website into a legitimate business which pulls millions of visitors per year.

Almost everything you see on the site is created and managed by me. There are only a few other people that help out with writing, data gathering, ideas, etc.

Despite GamingSmart being a small operation, the combined gaming experience that we have is extensive. For example: I’m an ex-competitive player in both Counter-Strike and Overwatch, and have countless hours in overall gaming play-time. So I guess you can say that I have a fair bit of knowledge when it comes to the topic of gaming.

As a fellow gamer, I generally know what other gamers want in terms of content. I know that sensitivity tools should be simple and easy to use, and that guides should get straight to the point. That type of thought process is applied into everything I do and create on here, and that’s why I believe this site is so great compared to the competition.

Looking forward

Our main goal for the upcoming years is to keep expanding and improving our site as best as possible. We want to help as many gamers as we can by providing the best sensitivity calculators, gaming guides, and gaming studies. We have grown so much since 2019, and we don’t plan on stopping that growth any time soon.
