Locked: VGChartz needs a totally new forum

Forums - Website Topics - VGChartz needs a totally new forum

VGC looks great to me, even on mobile. The only bad thing are the ads and they can be easily avoided installing adblock. If they made this site look like gaf I would quit right away lmao

It's a good forum, it should stay this way. The forum buddy is a nice feature and I like the design.

Gaf had a good layout, until they changed it last week trying to copy resetera, now it looks like total shit.



Best forum I ever used was GameTrailers back in the vBulletin days (before the database errors and redesign). Had all the nice tracking and sorting features, groups and blogs, good BBCode support, and a nice readable color scheme and layout. This forum takes some getting used to and certainly has room for improvement but isn't bad once you get the hang of it and has some nice if obtuse features (apart from the instability).

Of course it was started - and as a Supporter, you should be seeing that new version of the forum right now...???

Looks are highly configurable. The problem is that this forum's platform is ancient and probably something custom, which makes it a pain to work with. I've been talking for years that instead of trying to fix the mess we should just move to a modern and standardized forum platform. Makes everything a lot smoother and easier.

The problem is now that migrating will be a pain if you want to keep all of the features, specifically the GameDB. Though I'd have no problem with starting completely from scratch in a new forum.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

I do,  but I do not know if others have. Hence my confusion on him saying we need a new forum.
