Forums - Website Topics - Vgchartz tools not working

It seems the items in the Tools tab on this site, namely "Hardware by Date" and "Hardware Year-on-Year" are not working. Anyone else noticing this? I can't get it to come up on PC or mobile.

One thing that works like a swiss watch on this site are the ads. Never fails to work the ads

I temporarily disabled ads for this site. I don't feel too bad because I browse on my phone a lot and don't have them disabled there.

But yeah, very aggressive ads on this site. It reminds me of the first website I created that I put ads on. I got a little out of control and eventually realized that the income from ads is so low anyways that it wasn't worth making my site look like crap. I'm no expert, but I can't imagine that the ads bring in much more than a few hundred dollars a month.

We are in the middle of switching the site from HTTP to HTTPS to make the website more secure and to improve the SEO to help the site appear higher in Google searches. That is the reason for the Tools breaking. There is a lot to go through for those working on it, so it might be a little while before they are working again.

Ad revenue is the main source of income for the site. It is the site owner, ioi, who controls how many ads are placed on the site. If it was up to the rest of the staff we would get rid of the auto playing video ads and make other changes to the ads, so they are less obtrusive. VGC Supporters do help the writing team a bit and we all appreciate everyone who is a paid Supporter. But as a I said most of our income comes from ad revenue.

This should be working now...



It was working on and off for me, too. It's up now, like TalonMan said.

My problem is that, for quite some time now, I've been unable to click on a system's name on the little bar underneath the charts, because a previous update cause them and the little timeline slider to overlap. You used to be able to click on a system's name to toggle its sales line on and off in the chart, but I can't do that anymore. The time slider is itself buggy, as it doesn't zoom in accurately. What you see in the slider isn't what you get on the chart.

Same problems for me, both on Chrome and Opera.
