TalonMan!

You were the best. I loved the site back when you around, and we could tell you about every little bug or glitch and it'd get fixed.

A simpler time. =')

It's great to see RocketPig adn BengaBenga around as well.

Who?

Dtewi. He was an annoying 11 year old kid with a blatant crush on Zexen.

Indeed and still want Zexen even though  he just found a boyfriend, but sadly the poor child can't learn that Zexen has barely enough heart to love one person, let alone another even more so someone like dtewi. Ah this feels like old times...good times.



Former something....

I think makingmusic and machina have a very good and maybe it's one of the more subtle things that's been missing - and believe me, this is NOT me tooting my own horn! If you know me, I'm as self-depricating as they come...  :)

Back before this current version of VGChartz (the blue/white and the first black one) - the site was built BY the forums. Every feature that was added came from the voices of these forums, and most of which were done as I was reading the forums! If there was a suggestion I liked, I banged it out - if a bug came in, I jumped on it. But mostly, I enjoyed just building this stuff to see the reactions from you all - if you guys were happy and liked something, I was thrilled!! I was just looking back at some of my old posts - when I added forum polls, and the game forums, and of course the VGC-IM - GREAT STUFF!!! People were really happy when these types of features rolled out, and I was happy to bring them out!

With this current black/green itteration, Brett brought in a consultant to help out - AND BEFORE ANYBODY SAYS ANYTHING, THIS WAS NOT A BAD THING!!!! He absolutely NEEDED a dedicated coder to get the things done that he wanted. There was no way I could invest the same amount of time a paid consultant could - I have my OTHER job I'm getting paid for, afterall! And with kids and life and all that goes with that, there was no way I could rebuild from the ground up. The downside to that though, is a paid consultant is NOT the same as being 'one of the guys' that hangs around on this site and (at least in his OWN mind) has a finger on the pulse of the community. Most of the time, I knew what you guys wanted before you asked - a consultant, on the otherhand, isn't going to punch a single key unless you give him exact specifications as to which keys you want him to punch. And that's where I think some of the 'spark' might have gotten lost.

 

Anyway, I'm probably giving myself way too much credit here! LOL!! But I do like to think that I had a big part in making this place great back then and believe me, I have EVERY FAITH IN THE WORLD that as long as Brett is actively re-imagining this site, there WILL be good things on the horizon.

Be scared if he ever loses interest - he's a 'one of a kind' guy...  :)

 



Montana, you are remarkably good at this.

Work one more miracle and bring back Darth, if you could.

He hasn't been on PSN for a long time. If I recall correctly, he never did have Steam.

I had darth on PSN, but I aint been on a PS3 for about 5 Months.

Upsetting.



@Talon, imo all Brett needs to do is launch the old blue and white VGC and we're good to go. Still the best VGC ever.

Also where are FishyJoe, DKII, The Source, naznatips, nintendo_fanboy, RolStoppable, twesterm...



Wasn't Darth's excuse that he has to study all the time?

FishyJoe and DKII have gone missing a long time ago. The Source is mostly working on sales articles for the site and only posts every now and then in the forums. Same for naznatips, only that he works on gamrReview, not sales. nintendo_fanboy has recently shown up to tell me about 2D sections in Metroid: Other M that do not exist. twesterm is a moderator again, although less active lately.

I am pretty much always here, except when a moderator decides to ban me. I really don't know why you were asking for me, I didn't leave the site at any point, even though there were the occasional weeks when I hardly posted at all.

By the way, I hold the VGC record of getting banned by as many different moderators as possible. Ten. If extended to bans and warnings, the number of different moderators is twelve. I have a lot of fans around here.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
