I wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas

I'm a little late at posting this (I usually do this on the 23rd).



7 Days of Vizzed Christmas
You'll all be rewarded a nice Christmas gift when you come to the site on Christmas (server time). Additionally, you'll be rewarded a random amount of Viz for each day that you come to Vizzed from the 25th until the end of the year, the '7 Days of Vizzed Christmas'. Be sure to visit the site each day to claim your random Viz gift!



Christmas Games in the Retro Game Room
The Retro Game Room has 40+ Christmas games. You can find them all here:
//www.vizzed.com/playonlinegames/index.php?sort=best&search=Christmas&searchBy=theme



Christmas Video Game Music Stream
I'll be streaming Christmas / Wintery themed video game music 24 hours a day from tonight until Christmas is over. You can find the stream here:

Christmas Video Game Music
I put together a big playlist of Christmas themed and Winter themed video game music:

2021 Vizzed Awards - Happy 17 Year Anniversary

2021 has been a decent year for Vizzed as far as traffic goes. Vizzed has had a 20% traffic increase in the past year.


And even though my activity dropped in the final months of 2021 on the site (due to me getting an IT job), I managed to fix quite a few bugs and issues throughout the site and even update some features and add a few others. And most importantly, I got through a majority of my Private Messages.

Some of the fixes and updates:
-Completely Revamped the Video Game Music Room
-Resurrecting the Vizzed YouTube Channel
-20 – 50% Site Speed Boost
-Tons of new Features and Stats for Many Pages

Additional fixes and updates included Fixing NES Games, RetroArch HTML5 Emulator Enhancements including New Options, Help Center Updated, SEO Optimization of Site Pages (demonstration of how much it helped here), and so much more.

Vizzed also saw a semi-discontinuation of the RGR Plugin due to Flash being discontinued in all major browsers. I had started a fundraiser to help fund an update of the RGR Plugin that doesn’t support flash; that fundraiser exceeded expectations, showing that there was still a huge amount of supportive members on this site still. This updated version of the RGR Plugin is still pending since it has been difficult to find a qualified developer. Now I said Semi-discontinuation because the games in the Retro Game Room can still be played with the RGR Plugin using these instructions.

Something else that happened in 2021, which was an unexpected surprise, was the resurgence of the Vizzed.co Minecraft Server. Somehow the MC Server saw periods of high activity throughout the year, almost matching the prime days of the MC server. HUGE thanks to the MC Staff for helping take care of the increase MC traffic.

So I’ve been MIA in the past 4 months due to my IT job, as mentioned already. However, I’m slowly getting back more free time as the high demand of my job slowly decreases. I’ve been averaging 50 hours a week at my job, sometimes a little over 60 hours a week, but I’m slowly taking that down to around 45 hours a week.

I’m hoping to make 2022 the year of tournaments, events, competitions, etc. I’ll be streaming again with users and also putting together community based YouTube videos. Maybe we’ll see the return of past events, we’ll definitely see the return of real prizes, and if all goes well, we’ll get plenty of participation.

Feel free to join in on our voice chat on the Vizzed Official Discord Server in the #minecraft-server channel.


How the Tournament Works
The user to successfully navigate to the end of the Maze, wins!


Prizes
1st Place = US $25 (claim via PayPal or Gift Card)
2nd Place = 30,000 Viz (or 3 Raffle Tickets)

The site went down last night (about 12 hours ago) but I didn't know about it until this morning (few hours ago). I was unable to access anything so I had Hostgator manually reboot it for me. Still not sure why it went down but I'll keep everyone updated if there is an underlying issue, which I don't think is the case.

I Got an IT Job = Less Time Developing on Vizzed

The factory I've been working at for the past nearly 5 years recently opened up a couple of IT positions and I got one, and I start this week. I had only ever planned on being at this place for a year since that's how long I thought it'd take for the site to pick back up enough for me to generate a full time income from the site again. That of course never happened and 4+ years later I'm still at the same place. More recently I was doing some job searching and considering just pursuing a career that wasn't Vizzed and not long after this place opened up those 2 IT positions, which is something I was hoping they'd do for as long as I've been there.

The place I work at is in town and I've been working weekend shifts this entire time. This allowed me to focus on Vizzed during the weekend and also allowed me to be at home with my kids while they're home schooled or out of school during summer break (I'll be sending them back to public school most likely though). I've got a lot of anxiety in general and driving into an over populated city, which is where all the jobs are nearby (Twin Cities to be exact), just wasn't something I wanted to do so it's awesome that I'll be able to finally be utilized where I work.

The reason they finally opened up IT positions was because a company bought out the company I work for and so the IT guys from the company that previous owned us left and now the new company needs a new team. It's a Taiwanese company and our place makes circuit boards and this is their first factory in the US. They basically want a fresh start on everything and this gives me the opportunity to bring to life all of the ideas and visions I had for the place (those ideas being shot down in the past due to me not having a title worthy to do such tasks). I'll basically be in charge of everything software related. It's going to offer me a lot of opportunity to not only utilize and keep fresh the skills I have but also allow me to further develop those skills.

Anyways, here's how this affects Vizzed. I'll be working more hours than before and I'll also be working primarily during the week. I haven't had weekends off with my family in almost 5 years so I'm excited to have that with them. Because of this, I'll be doing very little development during the weekend and I'll be doing very little development during the week. They're going to allow me to have a very flexible schedule so I'm going to try and have it so that I have 1 day off during the week with that day being the day I work on Vizzed, which will hopefully be Mondays.

In other words, I'll be spending and investing less time on the site. Earlier in the year I was averaging around 25-30 hours on the site, lately I've been investing on average of 20 hours. Now I'll probably be investing 10 hours into the site so I have to make that time count (some weeks might be more). Thankfully I have an awesome staff so they'll definitely save me a lot of time which will help me focus on things that only I can take care of. If the site ever picks back up again, and enough to generate a full time income, I would for sure quit my job and focus primary on Vizzed again but until that happens, I'll have to just deal with spending 10+ hours on the site a week.

There are 2 positives that come out of this at least.

I'll be obtaining skills potentially beneficial to the site which might give me an opportunity to do things on the site or for the site that I wasn't capable of before (you know, maybe I'll develop the skills to make my own RGR Plugin or to be able to work on the current).

The other positive (kind of 2 actually) is that I'll be making more money at my job and this means I'll have a budget to host competitions again with cash prizes (not as big of a budget as in the past but a budget none the less). I eventually stopped hosting competitions due to the lack of participation and the lack of participation was a combination of less traffic on the site (and therefore less interest) and no longer having the budget for cash prizes. So I'll definitely be hosting competitions more often. Having a budget again also means I can invest money into various scripts for the site and also hire people to work on various things.

Since I've been doing SEO lately, it caused a surge in bot traffic. That bot traffic overwhelmed my logging system which caused some pages of the site and some features to just not work. It took me a while to fix because it took me a while to figure out why parts of the site were suddenly not working. My previous announcement is also related to this same issue.

I'm not sure why it happened but the site's server had an update which caused many pages with errors to not load. Unfortunately there were a lot of pages affected by this, which included:
-All RGR Plugin games (in the popup window)
-PlayStation game pages
-Rom Hack game pages

These are all fixed now. If any other pages stopped working over the past few days, please let me know ASAP in the following thread and I'll get to work right away on fixing them:

I'm planning on doing a Video Game Trivia series on the Vizzed YouTube Channel where I have a series of games (10 for now, but the rest of the videos will probably have 25) that you have to figure out. The answers will be in the captions but not right away. I will be revealing the answers a few days after each video comes out. Some videos will have cash prizes for the first person to get all of the games named correctly (or the person to get the most named correctly when the answered are revealed). I'm hoping to do at least 1 video a week.

Here's our first video:
