VGA Site Update Charity Addition 13/12/10

I thought it was time to update you about the changes we’ve done around here. Not much has changed cosmetically, but the Hall of Fame section has finally broken down by year, so with 2010 finished we’ve collected all the auctions and put them all in one place. This way things are kept nice and tidy!

Some of you probably saw that the  “Recent Comments” has been disabled in the side navbar. I figured there’s no need for it, and it makes the site load a little faster(less download time for gravatar pics). Also in the side navbar, I’ve added a “Charity” section. Some of you may be familiar with Child’s Play, and may not, so I am hoping that this can bring awareness. If you click on the Child’s Play banner you will be directed to their site. If you are interested in making a small donation all the information is there. They even have a wish list from Children’s Hospitals so you get to see what are the hot items. A lot of the items on the wish list is not more than $15, just thought I’d throw it out there.

That’s all the news for this month. Have a great night and remember…….play responsibly 😉

    Nice work, it takes a lot of time to do that for sure.

    Just my opinion, please bring back the recent comments sidebar! I really liked to be able to see if you guys have responded to some of my comments, but now I have to scroll through all the posts to see if it has any new comments. Before, I just looked at the sidebar, saw a new comment, then clicked on it and it was very simple and fast! But I understand if it costs you more bandwidth or something (I have no idea how internet sites work BTW, or how much they cost, etc. etc.)

    I temporarily added the recent comment version that I previously had on this site until I find something better :).

    Okay, cool! What do you think would be better? Maybe a separate bar or link to recent discussions/comments? Although, I really like it the way it is. But if one day you get more hits & comments on the site, it would probably be time for the sidebar to go because of an overload of new comments. But the way it is now, is perfect for me!

    Nice gravatar! I was debating which MGS character to use, and all signs pointed to the original PS1 title screen depiction of Solid Snake.

    Currently, the recent comments is only programmed to enter the 5 recent comments. So there will only be 5 comments at a given time :). So there won’t ever be an overflow. But adding the recent comments is helpful and saves time scrolling back through the pages. Thanks for the suggestion!

    It’s funny because I thought the same too.
