Yeah, content to empty space ratio is pretty lopsided. On the upside, short posts remind me of a guy whose head is 90% chin.

I'd forgotten there actually was a main page. A idea when the redesign will kick off?

Well, there's been communication to Shane about updating to an interface that integrates messageboard functions with front page functions. VB has functions that work this way. Shane has stated that he would like to cooperate in this regard, but he is pressed for time so it would be a while off.


At the moment, I need to get around to finishing graphical redesign concepts. I had most of a consensus with a particular style, among the mods, and it needs a little bump in the right direction to fit, IMO.

The logical solution would be everyone returning their gifts.

You know, like people do in real life.

We could put some of the stats like thanked posts and points in a JavaScript pull-out menu, and keep only the essentials visible at all times.

That would involve modifying the code for VB, and probably isn't going to happen.

True story: My browser assigns VGF the same web icon as IMDb.

Right now it's blank, but in the past VGF has had the same icon as GameFAQs, Pitchfork, Last.fm, and Amazon.

So, um...

When will the site overhaul take place? Or is it already underway?

We have to wait for an upgrade to the forum software before we finalise pretty much anything else, since we may need to put it into specific formats, etc. This will all take time (and money).
Nonsense, I have not yet begun to defile myself.

Waiting for the update.

But seriously, I'm interested in hearing about how things are going. Has any major progress been made?

I agree with Val here on hearing on how the site is coming along. Any new features and such?
