2018 Vizzed Awards - Happy 14 Year Anniversary

Alright, where do I begin. It's been the roughest year for Vizzed and its community. The site's traffic hasn't been this low since 2010 and the posting hasn't been this low since 2007. There has been a lot of division on the forum and the site has been missing its leader. Not only has 2018 been a low point for the site, it has also been the roughest year I've ever experienced in my personal life. Having to deal with things in my life that I never thought I'd ever have to go through and then having to battle some horrible nights of severe depression in its purest form. But 2018 is almost over and 2019 is almost here. Vizzed has its leader back and I'm optimistic for 2019. The site has already begun picking up over the past few weeks and the forum has been revived and rejuvenated as of a few days ago.

Despite the negativity of 2018, the site did receive a lot of much needed enhancements and features that I've been promising for many years. I finally created a Theme Creator which gives users the ability to create and share their own themes to use on Vizzed and I'm also going to be doing seasonal competitions where users can create a theme for a competition with the reward of having it used on the site for a short duration (like the current Christmas Theme Competition). I Fixed Most of the RGR Games, Upgraded RetroArch, and rebuilt the Netplay Sessions page. I purchased an SSL certificate so that the Vizzed.com URL is now HTTPS. I created a Requests Page to help organize and prioritize what needs to be done. I even added around 1000 video game soundtracks (totaling nearly 20,000 songs) to the Video Game Music Room.

Besides adding new stuff, I also did a lot of enhancing to what we currently have. Pages that I completely rebuilt from the ground up and migrated to the new site code include: Netplay Sessions, Show Posts and Announcements. And I'm hoping to get the remaining outdated site pages migrated before the year ends. I also fixed a lot of stuff which include: Reply to Post Summoning, Various Cosmetic Issues, Smilies and many other little things here and there.

I had promised a new direction for Vizzed and more involvement with the community earlier in the year but that was soon derailed by certain life events but I believe I'm back on track at making these changes happen. In 2019, I'll be investing more of my time into the community and will be prioritizing features that benefit the forum. I'm also going to work on making the site more customizable and even offer opportunities for qualified users to help out with the site and various site pages.

I've done something radical. I've demoted all of the moderators. Clean start. Rebuilding the team from the ground up. There have been too many complaints about the moderators over the years and it has resulted into a lot of members leaving, resulting into a massive drop in activity. It's time to let the community help choose who gets to have the power to be above them. Letting the Moderators choose who becomes a Moderator opens the doors for corruption and abuse of power.

I have 10 Local Moderator positions available. All you have to do is reply to the below thread with an application explaining why you think you deserve to be a Local Moderator and how you plan to make this a better place. Make it convincing and be honest, because the entire community will be involved with voting on who gets promoted.

2 Global Moderators will be chosen from the 10 Local Moderators. Voting for this will begin after the 10 Local Moderators have been promoted but this time those 10 Local Moderators will vote on who is most deserving of Global Mod. No one will be made an admin for the time being, I'll let time determine who is worthy of the admin position and at some point have an election for those 2 spots.

The Local Moderator applications will be available until December 5th and voting will last about a week (these times may change depending on participation). If you have any questions at all, let me know in this thread:
https://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=101022

All demoted staff members are eligible to apply for this and most likely have a great shot at getting the same position back. This mass demotion isn't targeting anyone, I just find it easier to revive Vizzed if I first start with reviving the staff (the team responsible for helping me make this happen) since a forum's success is often determined by the staff.

To apply, please submit your applications to this thread:

I'm giving you all an opportunity to make a Christmas theme for Vizzed which will be used for an entire week on the entire site!

Using the new Theme Creator feature, make the best possible Christmas theme that you can. Once this competition ends, users will all vote on what they think is the best Christmas theme and the theme that gets the most votes will be used as the default theme on the site during the '7 Days of Vizzed Christmas' which is from December 25th - 31st. In case of a tie breaker, the tied themes will split the time.

You can find the Theme Creator here:
https://www.vizzed.com/u/theme.php

If your theme gets selected, you'll lose the option to edit the theme and your theme will permanently be a featured theme on the site that users are able to use forever. When you have your theme ready, reply to this thread with a link to your theme:
https://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=101019

On Wednesday, 11/28/2018, from 4-8 PM (central time zone) we'll all be listening to and rating the songs from the Nintendo 3DS Music Competition. Shortly before each song finishes, I'll give users a link to where they can rate each song and the song submitters get points for any rating above a 3 (out of 5).

I will be hosting this event on my Twitch channel and I'll be giving away a total of $250 worth of Steam Games in the form of Vizzed Raffle Tickets which can be used to redeem Steam games and other digital games including eShop, Uplay and more. The Raffle Tickets can also be traded into the Vizzed Market for 10,000 Viz each.

The more songs you rate, the higher your chances are of winning a raffle after the stream is over. Each rating you make during the stream is basically another entry in the raffle. There will be over 1000 digital games that winners will be able to pick from. You can see a full list of redeemable games here:

Theme Creator = Create and Change the Site's Look

The Theme Creator lets you create your very own theme. Once you've created the theme, you can apply the theme to either a page that you have admin powers over, or you can apply it to yourself which then gives many pages of the site that custom look. Not only can you create your own theme, but you can also choose from any of the user created themes.

This has been one of the more anticipated features that I promised users years ago. Even though it still has a long way to go, I'm excited to finally launch it . Keep in mind that it'll only affect pages of the site that have been migrated to the new site engine but I plan to get more pages migrated in the near future, especially ones that are commonly used such as the New Reply page, Private Messages, Announcements and Login/Register. Also keep in mind that you can collaborate on a theme with someone by making them an "Admin" of your theme's page which gives them access to making changes to the theme (to make someone an admin of a page that you're an admin of, click the 'Edit Page' link at the top left of the page).

The feature can be found here:
https://www.vizzed.com/u/theme.php

Notable Features
-Create your own customized theme with instant previewing
-Browse user created themes to use as your own theme
-Make your theme available to the public or make it private
-See how many pages and users are using a specific theme

Future Features
-Allow users to buy and sell themes with Viz
-More customization over the look of the site
-Ability to copy "qualified" themes and alter them from there
-Rating system
-Search Features
-Make the theme creator easier to use and more user friendly

Set a Theme as Your Default Theme
To set a theme as your default site theme, click the 'Settings' link at the top left of the page and then scroll down to the 'Theme' section and from there, insert the ID of the theme you want to use.

Set a Theme for a Page
To add a theme to a page, simply click the 'Edit Page' link at the top left of a page that you have admin powers over and there should be a theme section where you can insert the ID of the theme you want to use.

I haven't done this in a while and I had originally planned on doing this every month.

I wanted to give a shout out and thanks to my supporters on Patreon. Their financial support has really helped out a lot. I'm hoping these shout outs give them more recognition among the Vizzed community. If anyone else is interested in supporting this site (there are tons of benefits for doing so), you can help out for as little as US $2 a month here:

In many browsers, the donation page didn't work because the donation methods on the donation page required that it be on a secure site with an SSL certificate using HTTPS but I didn't have one set up at the time so that page has been down for quite a while. It's completely functional now though and can be access here:

Most of the games in the Retro Game Room that have had problems either recently or in the past year have been fixed. This mostly applies to any game that uses the RGR Plugin.

Here's a brief list of what was fixed:
-GBA and N64 (hadn't worked in about a week or more)
-Arcade and MESS systems (same issue as GBA & N64)
-Dreamcast (hasn't worked properly in almost 9 months)
-Saving, Loading and Screenshot taking (had been down 1+ weeks)
-Arcade Clones (the list of available clones for a game hasn't been available in almost 9 months)
-Game Page URLs (not sure for how long but some links to game pages from various sections of the site didn't work properly)
-Google Chrome (a recent Chrome update made it harder to get working, should be better now since it gives you something to click for enabling Flash on Vizzed)
-Lots of other little things

If there are other RGR related problems, let me know right away in the below thread and I'll try and get it fixed as soon as I can (assuming it's not a time consuming fix):

I purchased and setup an SSL Certificate for Vizzed.com and now the entire site automatically transfers you to it. This makes the site more secure but it also greatly improves the site's reputation online and therefore increases the search engine rank since search engines like Google reward a site's ranking if the site is using https.

I had to go through a lot of pages to make sure everything is pointing to the new URL since a lot of pages stopped working because of it. If a page has content (such as images) that aren't using https on a page that is using https, most browsers throw a security warning and some don't even let you view the page. If anyone notices a page on the site that is no longer working, let me know right away in the following thread:
