Well, it's one shinier isn't it? ... Okay, why don't you just make five a bit more shiny and then that would be the most shiny? ... Because these go to six.
Hi there! My first blog on the entire *GG-domain. It seemed like a good idea to use the VideoGameGeek News for my 'Gazettes'. So, without further delay, what's New on VGG from the admin point of view? :

Barad_the_dwarf became admin
thread
Jan joined our admin team, to focus on community events. He already had solid ideas before he became admin, now he's starting those up!

Hall of Fame updated
Hall of Fame
The list of Ultimate VGG Uploader microbadge owners is still 12 long. Most remarkable item: Forbidding took over first place! And drove Ncik to second. On average these Ultimate uploaders amassed 39 points since last calculation, with frumpish leading with +214,5 points since last time.

Fire OS added as new platform
thread
Since Amazon has announced the release of a few titles which will only run on Fire OS, this new platform has been added. The platform is meant for games on the Fire Phone and Kindle Fire range of tablets.

Amazon ratings added
The rating which Amazon uses in its app store are added to our list of rating:
Amazon - All Ages
Amazon - Guidance Suggested
Amazon - Mature
Amazon - Adult

MOBA added as genre
Genres
Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA), also known as action real-time strategy (ARTS) has been added to our Genres.

Review - play rules changed
Monthly VGG Review Contest Subscription Thread
VGG featured reviews post
Lastly, about written reviews of video games submitted to VGG: VGG has the monthly Review Contest. The rules of that contest have been changed per 1/1/2015: the theme is no longer mandatory, but optional for extra geekgold. Meaning everyone can now participate with any review(s) written in the current month.
Secondly, we now have a fixed post in the announcement section, specifically for featured reviews. The winner of last month's contest winner is listed. And if a review is about a game which was released in the last 12 months, that review will also be listed for a month.

That's it! For now cool
