There's still things that need to be fixed and those things will be fixed soon but most of the site should work fine.

Here's briefly 5 of the biggest reasons for the updates:
1. Better Search Engine Rankings (means more traffic)
2. Cleaner page urls
3. Possibly fixed cookie issues with google chrome
4. Vizzed.com index is no longer a redirect
5. Opens the door for 2 features which will be available soon (and also future features)


There are some things that don't work, below is a list of things I know about, if you find a problem with the site that just came up since the maintenance that isn't on the list, please post it in this thread.

Known things needing fixing:
-C64 games
-Apple II games
-Atari 2600 Games
-Lesser known sub pages
-Downloads page
-Arcade
-Retro Toon Room
-RGR Screenshot retrieval page
-Some links on game pages don't work such as link to make a review and the links to threads
-Left side of posts where user stats are doesn't work
-When trying to play games from profile, links don't work
-Hovering over 'Play Game' currently doesn't show the tip popup
-RGR Screenshots of review threads not showing
-Logging Out Doesn't work



Below are details on the changes that have been made

Cleaner site directories and better SEO:
The current and future "big" features of the site no longer rest within the "vizzedboard" directory.
So instead of
vizzed.com/vizzedboard/retro
the new url to the rgr games is
vizzed.com/playonlinegames
This is good for many reasons but the biggest reason is that the url contains better keywords and more keywords which greatly increases search engine ranking

Cookie issue in google chrome possibly fixed:
I'm pretty sure the cookie issue that some people have been having in google chrome has been fixed.  The issue was where the user would log in and appear signed in but as soon as they entered the retro game room, they were no longer signed in.

All old pages redirect properly to new pages:
If you go to an old page, you don't have to worry, the page will redirect you to the page in the new directory.  Also, images will stay up because the old vizzedboard image directories will remain up.

A ton of other stuff that most of you wont notice but a lot of it was necessary for some future features and for the future of vizzed.

Awesome stuff, David. I noticed a few changes with the chat bar too, though I dunno if it was your doing or anything.

Thanks again for your work. It's the time and effort you put into the site that keeps it running so nicely. x3

I am very much looking forward to the coming feature. I am willing to help if I can. Also I already see a difference with the cleaner urls. Props to you David the most awesome site owner I've ever known, and I'm not just saying that. You really take feedback into consideration.

It does seem much nicer. The game profile pages need some work though.

I don't know if it's just me but I noticed on the left column the post count, EXP, and Vizz amounts are not showing up, broken link, or none existent-like. I'm asuming it has to do with the changes/ maintenance.

When I click to see a thread for one of the retro games I get a 404 not found error.  I have checked many threads for different games and it's always the same 404 not found error.

Is this due to the maintenance?

Maybe I never noticed them before, but there are buttons like "Announcements," "Single Player Games," "Translate," and "Chatrooms" on there. I dunno if those are your doing or not though.

Oh, the pictures for the games you own are all missing, and last time I tried, you couldn't get to it by clicking the "Click here to view the games you own" link on the RGR homepage. I think they all lead to 404s too. Not sure on that last part.
EDIT: Never mind. I don't know what was up earlier.

I have a few things I want to say in improving vizzed.  You do not have to do this but I just wanted to just say it so I do not have to keep waiting.

- Vizzed can have a forum that involves Food and Beverages with sub forums about breakfast, drinks, etc.
- Vizzed can have a word count when posting or making a thread.
- Vizzed can have a way of saying that you have posted in this thread before.
- A mod can have the ability to remove a post that is an accidental duplicate.

I just wanted to let you know about that.  I hope that the things you are trying to fix will be fixed soon.

Maybe it's just my connection, but there are no pictures in the Toon Room. Is this a sign that you're taking it away or just an accident?

Is the RGR screenshot page still under maintenance? Because I can't see any of the screens that I've taken for any of the RGR games.

The RGR reviews used to show screenshots of the game at the top of the page. It only shows the box description there now. I'm not sure if that was intentional or if it was a result of the maintenance.

It's not that important, but just pointing it out.

Umm something really weird happened when I got on at the front of the day today. I could not see any of the words. They were all there but they were blended into the background. I have no idea why that happened but it did. I have not had the problem again though.

Thanks for all the new fixes!
