Well, I'm sorry to say, Joker, this is something of a backwards April Fools! We REALLY ARE working towards making new things for VGF. :D

At this stage, our first focus is a graphical update for the forums and site, then we'll get right into figuring out exactly what content we want. Ideas so far have mostly played off our original name: Video Gamers First. We want to keep the community at for forefront for articles, stories, Let's Play videos, game music remixes and originals, and fanart.

Feel free to add in your own ideas for consideration! Bacon is, of course, a definite. ;)

I think I possess a fairly decent basic understanding of the english language. If you have need for user generated content, I can be assistance if you desire.

Well, the extent will obviously vary from person to person, but I believe the general idea is that we'll all pitch in however we can and want to, with the aim of revitalizing the site.

The forumula goes:

More People coming in here = nice people + Good content.

with that we might get some idiots but i have a formula for that too:

Bad people +(Administrators + Ironboots) * How hard you can swing those boots = VGF - Bad people

I've been doing a few articles on my blog actually, if you care to ever take a look.

It's not too much, but I can probably do a couple things if I'm willing. Especially since I have a sizable knowledge of video game info. I can probably do things like my personal opinion on upcoming games, or just do Top 10s on stupid things and do Character of the Months or something like that. ;)

Really, what I'm trying to say is that I'm ready to put my services up for the site.

Except Luigiman and Hayfever. Your sigs are alright.

I propose a new VGF slogan to go with the site overhaul.

I thought we already had a slogan?

And remember, "We put the grammar and everything."

I'm excited to see that the main site is going to get some new content. Sounds great!

My one suggestion is to improve the layout a bit. It could use some contrast because as it stands, it looks like a sea of blue.
