So, back with a new News overview, as seen through my VGG admin glasses...
VGG Community Geeklist
geeklist: VGG: Building a better community!
VGG now has a community geeklist to introduce yourself and get to know other VGG users.
VGG new forum: Multiplayer
Since VGG has a community which does a lot of gaming together online, we've introduced the Multiplayer forum to make it easier to find people and set up games.
VGG twitter account
Thanks to Barad_the_dwarf VGG now has an active (revived) twitter account! Become a follower and claim that microbadge!
Image policy changed
thread: VGG image policy changed. Upped to 24 screenshots limit
We've made a numer of changes to VGG Image Policy. More to come, but for now most notably we've upped the screenshot limit from 12 to 24 and we're accepting press kit images.
Canceled and Unlicensed games
Due to recent experiences we've changed the policy of not taking pics for unreleased games to "Please only submit images if you own a copy or have legal access to this item." - yes, that does happen, apparently. We also felt we should allow pics of unlicensed games. We don't make judgment calls. We merely acknowledge their existence.
DRM gone from "Create Videogame" form
As this field was barely used and did not add any value to the user experience (in sort of info which people want to look up) we decided to hide that field and no longer use it.
Hall of Fame updated
page: Hall of Fame
I recalculated the list of Ultimate VGG Uploader microbadge owners. The only change in ranks was LostDice (now 5th) overtaking celiborn. Most active was Forbidding, rising another 233.6 points since January.
thread: GeekMod v2
Not so new (Feb) but new since last Gazette, so still mentioning this one. It's been tweaked since on several issues and bugs and I believe most already got used to it.
That's all newsflashes I could think of. Till next!
