It's been quite some time since we lasted updated you all. I have been extremely busy and simply don't have the time nor energy to keep the site properly updated with code fixes and new features. I sincerely apologize for that. That said let me fill you in on what's going on.
Presently we've had very little time to do any real work on the site. What few volunteers we do have, have been working hard to process the massive amount of game requests we receive. Unfortunately as you've likely noticed we've fallen quite behind with handling them. Nonetheless we're continuing to leave the request forum open and we will handle them as best we can. If anyone is interested in joining our team please check out our jobs page!
We've recently updated the template on the site, and to be honest, we're not 100% in love with it. It was a rushed job and a poor one at that. For that we greatly apologize. If everyone has some patience we have already picked out a new template and would like to have the site updated to use it by December 31, 2015. I know this might seem like a while, and 2 months is a bit away, however given the time constraints we aleady have that is what we can commit to at this time. I think you're all going to like the new layout, and t's look and feel It should be a lot more mobile friendly as well!
A final word, I thank you all for checking out and using MyVideoGameList.com, if I could make it a full time job I really would. The community has been incredibly supportive, we've had some fantastic ideas from members and I've been able to meet some really wonderful people. I'd like to take a minute and thank all those who have volunteered and to those who have stuck with us. I'd like to make a specific shout out to nagizuma who has been with us for quite a long time now and has done an awesome job knocking out many many game requests. I'd also like to thank morgan who has worked countless hours developing the code which runs the website. I am so thankful I have been given the opportunity to create this community and bring together all sorts of gamers. We have 2 more months left in the year, and we'll be working hard to add more games into the database, bring to you a new layout and hopefully a new feature or two!
Thank you.Written by jimmyb on October 25, 2015 @ 6:54 pm
Yes because people have been wanting games for months. Should have done that months ago.
There is no way I will complain about the job you and everyone else does on this site. If it's strictly voluntary then I'm honestly amazed at how much content is on this site as it is. I wish I could be of service in helping to add games, but I honestly don't know the first thing about coding. or web design.
BroRocker, you don't need to know anything about coding or web design in order to help out with adding games. You just need to know how to proofread.
Thank you, Jimmy! I hope I can be here for even a longer time lol :D
Could you consider crowd-sourcing the games? If something like 10 actual real users vouch for a game, you can just put it up there.
Really loving this site! Hope there will be a possible Android/IOS MyVideoGameList app, which will be extremely helpful.
Honestly just put up an announcement and tell people you want them to add games for you, you can even learn them if needed.
Thanks for the awesome job! As a hobby this is more than awesome :D
Being a person with a certain rank who is able to approve/respond to game requests here is such a fun thing to do. I would complete several pages a day, haha. Regarding the topic at hand, I've been here for a while, adding, removing, trying to help people on the chat etc,etc. aaand you people are evolving (in a good way obviously) so keep up the good work and game on ^^
