Are we being abused?

Yes. 37 66.07%
No, but my opinion doesn't matter. 19 33.93%

I thought it was about time that somebody would just come out with it already and considering the rest of you are seemingly cowards, I had to do it. So, you are very welcome for that. 

Anyhow, the topic here is quite obvious from the title. Though, if you are a tad slow, I'll explain it to you in deeper detail. Us VGChartians (this is our official demographic term, by the way) have been abused since approximately the start of 2012. Many of the veteran members are very keen on this as they have personally seen the downfall of this site. However, In order to spell it out for you, I'll give you the problems in a nice list:

1. We had our precious Game DB taken away from us. This was the first domino in the long line of 'em. Taking away the DB automatically made the sales part of this site not as nice as it was. Also, the DB Admins were out of their job. A cruel thing, I must say.

2. We've been stuck with this form of VGC for awhile now. A couple months of this neon green and black layout was enough, but a couple years? Come on, that's just inhumane.

3. Constant bugs are popping up and no one seems to care. Just recently we had a huge problem with the homepage of this site loading as slow as frozen molasses thawing and then rolling down the empire state building, when it's usually just as slow as molasses rolling down a medium sized rock. I've got to say, VGC really outdid itself with this one.

No, that's not all, but trust me, you wouldn't want to sit here for a couple days reading that list. Anywho, fellow members of VGC, what say you? Do you think something needs to be done about all these problems? Do you think ioi needs to visit us peasants more than once a year? I certainly do. I know I personally have a love like for this site and I'd hate to see it in shambles for much longer.

The badge system is annoying, either fix it or get rid of it all together.

ioi called pezus delusional, so all is forgiven.

Your reading skills really impress me, Rol. 

Anyhow, there's others/things he must take care of. All is not forgiven yet.

Well, isn't this like the direct result of everyone using adblock?

When was the last time this site had a major update? A lot of things need to be fixed.

Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Just look at the look in ioi's eyes. He is clearly an evil genius that is plotting something very big!

How would that be? I would say one of the major problems of this site is the catalyst to everyone using AdBlock here.

lol like I have a choice. Last time I tried visiting without AdBlock the site straight up wouldnt work

I think of VGC more as competitive asynchronous multiplayer than as cooperative multiplayer.  You should understand.

Though I do miss being able to add new games.

Adblock exist because of sites like this one.
