Sweet. I guess that the spin-off of the mod team yearly swimsuit calendar for the admin/writers is finally coming to fruition.

I'm not a very active user. But this is the only website that I still write in the forums for.
I like this place, I feel that the premise of the site make it attractive for people with analytical minds, which in turn make for more interesting posts to read.

Yup, and that doesn’t even include lots of behind-the-scene changes we’ve already implemented!



                                                                                                                                                           

While I do miss the sheer traffic and spectacle of the old days, I sure don't miss the rampant trolling and bickering. Overall, vgchartz has undergone a vast transformation since I joined. The internet is still full of morons, but the style of the moderation and the overall ambiance of this place has evolved into something that works properly and doesn't really attract these, which is a first as far as forums go (in my experience). I would rather have better discussions than lots of discussions - if I had to choose.
We're not dead, which in itself is a fantastic achievement, most sites, and forums that lived past a decade are owned and run by huge corporate entities or companies or are simply tiny niche things for followers of specific games, books, or other phenomena. It's amazing we're still around, and I'm always happy when I see other veterans posting, I feel like I really know these people despite never having met them in real life.



The downfall of this site were certain ban happy mods and the constant complaining from ninty fans. The removal of the sales graphs and charts.
For me personally what killed the forum aspect was the "official" Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft threads that lump all the discussions and news together. Threads get closed because what you want to talk about has already ever so slightly been mentioned in the official threads amongst another 100 topics running simultaneously. It's a cluster F.
Just my 2 pence.



Nobody's perfect. I aint nobody!!!

Bold isn't true at all...

In fact in my entire history of being on this site I've never seen a thread locked because it was discussed in a Nation thread, Lol.

A lot of stuff discussed in Nation threads have dozens of comments in the Articles created on the same subject too. Users are clearly discussing the stuff in Articles still and not threads because nobody makes threads on the subject matters to begin with, Lol.

People have to actually make the threads first, one time it was Curl soloing all the thread creation, I made a lot of threads recently, it shouldn't be down to just a few people though, we've all got to chip in, there was a time where all 3 Nation threads were massively more popular than they are today and the forums were also thriving overall.

I used to make threads all the time and stopped for the very reason that they kept getting closed because those topics were "Already being discussed".
