The best Vgchartz was Version 1.0 hands down. i loved the white template in 2008 everything was colourful and everything loaded very fast

I did bring back a "blue" theme - you just have to be a Supporter, in order to use...

I had no idea, when did that come to the Supporter program?!?!

When they relaunched the program a bit at end of last year? Right around that time. I sub'd for a couple months and I love the blue retro theme.

...maybe at some point, I ought to put together a "recap" thread of all the recent changes. I always bump these types of threads to "red" status once a feature is implemented - but if you happen to not be on the site for a day or two, there's a good chance you miss it and have no idea (which apparently happened right here, with the site themes).

The past 6 months have been EXTREMELY busy with updates, so I should probably gather them all up and post a brief reminder about all of the changes.

I think thats a good idea if you want to encourage supporters.

Also, now a supporter!

I'm currently pretty happy with things. I miss the sales estimates, though I know they're not coming back. It would have been nice to just relabel them "physical retail estimates" just to have a rough digital-physical breakdown. I also miss the amount of regional data we had. Maybe that'll improve as we get more data, but even older games that we have official shipments for the totals of have lost their longstanding regional estimates. I miss that data, even if it was probably rough it at least gave me a general sense of which series did well in which regions in which eras of that series (for example, Japan liked early Zelda, USA likes modern Zelda more, everyone loves BotW). God I miss that data. Now all I see is a bunch of "N/A" everywhere. If it was about digital games, then couldn't you have kept the regional data for games before the digital era?

I had a weird thought. If there are a bunch of lurkers, perhaps if you gave them an anonymous way to give feedback, they'd tell you what it would take to get them to come out of lurking and join us? You'd probably get a vocal group of assholes that would use it as an opportunity to troll the mods, but you might get some sincere people that are just shy for some reason? Or it might just be a bunch of banned ex users trash talking you that you'd be able to recognize by the IP. I dunno, just a thought, might be interesting to see what the lurkers are thinking.



This and IGN are my favorite game sites, but in the past 2 weeks VGC has become damn near unusable for my iPhone X. Scrolling up and down a page is extremely slow and takes forever; sometimes, scrolling is not even possible due to a glitch (e.g. the Sekiro 2mil sold thread. I can’t scroll past the OP to see the rest of the comments); and the ads are ridiculous, taking up 1/4 of the screen with no ability to click out of them.

This isn’t mentioning the fact that the site is seriously unsafe. It literally says “Not Secure” at all times next to the URL at the top of the page. This site has given every one of my phones viruses that will take me to a new fake website automatically. And all the history for that page is eliminated/glitched, so I cant just press “back”; I have to just close out the window entirely.

VGC has been glitchy and unsafe for all the years I’ve used it, but now it’s reached a new level.



@TalonMan

Could we get a way to choose what badges show up below our avatars? For some reason I still have the 2 years, and the Mirror Image badges. But shouldn't newer badges like "5 years", show up instead?
