Where do we go from here?

Ganoncrotch said: I'm not suggesting for a moment that the funds are not there to do the job, I'm just saying would you consider in your analogy directly letting the fate of the shop in the customers hands in a big sale event (help... this analogy is falling apart) but I mean if there was an amount quoted for a complete overhaul, would you imagine that figure outside the realms of...

VGPolyglot said: Hmm, would you be willing to allow others to work on the site then? I know that it's a bit difficult to figure out who is suitable for the job and who can be trusted with that power, but I think that there would be at least some people willing to help (of course I could be wrong, but I guess that is an idea). Perhaps. Finding good people is always hard but it is...

Where do we go from here?

Unfortunately, the website scene has changed a lot with the advent of mobile and apps - advertiser rates are down 50-70% from 10 years ago so profitability has been hit hard - hence why you have seen a lot of big sites shut down or have massive cutbacks. I don't intend for the site to go anywhere - as I say it brings in enough to cover the basic costs and leave me with a little bit of profit -...

Where do we go from here?

I always like an analogy. You've owned a corner shop for the last 15 years. It used to do really well but with the advent of Amazon etc it is down a lot from its peak 10 years ago. You've had to move with the times and set up some online stores as well but your little shop still has a soft spot in your heart. You have a really good manager who runs it and a strong local community who shop...

Where do we go from here?

Just came across this thread. To address a few points: I am the creator and owner of the site. I still have overall control and check in from time to time but I also have a number of other projects that I manage so have essentially handed over day to day control to Craig (Machina) who is in charge of VGChartz now. Without him the site simply wouldn't be where it is today. TalonMan is an old...

Charts Announcement

in Website Topics on 25 October 2015

This is great news for everyone involved - not least me! It has been an enormous workload (I hate to use the word burden) to run this site for 10 years. It is my baby so it is hard to let go and pass things on but in Craig and William I have two people that I trust and who are capable of taking VGChartz forward. I will still be on hand to advise and oversee (especially during the holiday season...

Aeolus451 said: Here's a few questions for ya, Brett. 1. What's been keeping you busy enough to get you so far behind with the numbers? I can understand if you don't want to answer this because the answer could be too personal for you to answer but I figured I would ask it because some of us would like to know. 2. What are features do you plan on adding to the site?  3. Would you...

Fei-Hung said:When will mods get paid if ever? What games have you released through your other company? Do you plan on making games for consoles since MS and Sony have made it easier for Indies? Question for mods: Why do you volunteer to graft for free? I get it if it's humanitarian work, but this is far from it. Why do you put up with the grief when it comes to lack of numbers etc?...

Hi Brett, how are you? Once the numbers get up-to-date, will we see weekly updates again? Is it possible to update numbers same time same day every week? I think this would give the numbers a...
