Forums - General Discussion - A Simple Step In Reviving VGChartz

Banned users always just make alt-accounts anyway. Not really sure we'd see as much of an uptick in conversation and activity. The issue of traffic has much more to do with a decline in parity of the console wars, the fact that this site originated pre-facebook, instagram, etc, and the reliance of modern websites on mobile, which this site lacks almost completely. Good luck if you ever get logged out on your mobile device. It's almost impossible to log back in because of the wonky interface.

It's not pre-Facebook (which actually originated in '04 :P), but your point remains.

In all seriousness though. This site needs to become mobile-friendly. It's 2019 and users expect a good experience when browsing on their phones and tablets. I know creating a mobile version or making the site responsive can mean a lot of work for the staff but as is the potential of the site is severly limited.

Another suggestion (yes, I'm being serious here) is for VGChartz to have it's own podcast and stream on Youtube or Twitch.



I wouldn't mind unbanning some users. Not sure how other mods feel.



What about that guy with the chun li avatar? He was a pain but he was fun lol

He requested a perma-ban. Even though they're not granted by and large any more, he must have made a good case. I think he's among the least likely to return, assuming this unbanning scenario plays out to any degree.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Can someone explain to me how this place is dying? Is the owner shutting it down or is just in a lul of activity?

The latter. Although it's not so much a lull, that would suggest it's only temporary, rather it's been a steady decline for quite awhile now and seems unlikely to change in the near future.

There might be a console war and ya never know, they might be able to grt access to digital sales...ya it's fucked, ain't it.

The socialist, virgin. VGPolygot, no? I'm positive he had an alt account after his banning under a female name.

I am not against it either. Of course we would need to weigh up the pros/cons of each user who was banned on an individual basis... Because some users certainly do not deserve to be back.
