2019 Vizzed Awards - Happy 15 Year Anniversary

I’m going to start this out by letting everyone know that I’m still working on the 15 Year Anniversary Video but it’s a little behind. It should be up within a week though, and I’ll make a separate announcement for it. You can get a sneak peak of what to expect here (the video will be based on the events listed on that).

After a lot of bold and controversial decisions made at the end of 2018 involving a complete staff restructure, 2019 started out really strong. It slowed down a bit but I think that was just a temporary phase and I believe the site is on track to start growing again. 2018 was the rock bottom for the site and 2019 was the beginning of the gradual incline that follows.

2019 was also a really busy year as far as development goes. I said I would dedicate 2019 to working on features that benefit the forum and its community and that’s exactly what I did. I spent very little time working on the Retro Game Room and mainly focused on fixing, finishing and expanding things on the forum. The biggest project of course was Rebuilding the Entire Post System, which I think makes the forum worthy of a Vizzed Board 2.0 status? I also completely rebuilt the Private Message System from the ground up. Both of those projects were some of the biggest projects I’ve tackled in years but they weren’t the only forum related things I worked on.

I restructured the Log System which made the site more secure and faster, made a ton of different cosmetic updates (for example, Input Fields), developed a ‘Vizzed GO’ game as an April Fools prank that caught on and was kept, finally added a Post Quoting feature, made a New Memberlist page, made a New Active Users page, and so much more.

I did work on the Retro Game Room and Video Game Room a little though. I upgraded the version of RetroArch that we use countless times. I rebuilt the Game Editor to make the lives of the staff easier, I completely revamped the way Screenshots are handled and displayed, fixed the Game Streamers page, etc.

And then to some, the biggest thing that happened in 2019 was the Vizzed Minecraft Server Revival!

One of my more favorite features that I made was the Site Statistics page. It lets you see just about any type of statistic on the site with an endless amount of filters. All of the stats for the awards below were generated from that page (in previous years, I had to execute queries in the database) so be sure to click the ‘Source’ links to see those results in action.

Another big thing that happened in 2019: My Bomberman ’94 Tournament streak was finally broke by Foxyman1113! I had been the reigning champion for 5 years. Again, congrats Foxyman1113, it was nice to finally have that streak broken and it was well earned

Expect to see less features in 2020 compared to previous years but more involvement in the actual community. In 2020 I’ll be spending far less time doing development work on the site and far more time just being part of the community, which will include more posting, hosting more events, more streams with the members of the site, more PM reading, more Notification reading, and just more involvement with the community and staff in general.

You can find all of the awards and additional information here:

15 Years of Vizzed Board Timeline = Submit Your Video/Audio

I'm putting together a YouTube video for the Vizzed Channel which will show the evolution of this site and its community in the form of a timeline. The timeline will list all of the significant events (in order) and will show various statistics. It will also list the different users who have been staff and users who have had an impact on the site in some way.

The video will probably be around 10 minutes long. Throughout the video, I'd like for clips of Vizzed users to play so this is where you guys can help out.


Submit Your Video/Audio
I wanted to have the involvement of Vizzed users in this video.

Qualified users can send me an audio or video clip in the following ways:
1. Email it to me at
Content hidden from guests! Register or Login to view it.

2. Upload it to YouTube (as unlisted) for me to download
3. Upload it somewhere on the internet

You qualify if any of the following apply to you:
1. You've been a member for 5 or more years
2. You have more than 1000 posts (or 100,000 post words)

The Video/Audio Clip should:
-Be no more than 15-25 seconds long

Suggest Vizzed Events for the YouTube Timeline

As mentioned in this thread, I'm planning on putting together a timeline video of Vizzed.

I'm putting together a timeline feature which I'll be using to help "render" the timeline video and also to have a platform where I and others can submit events. You can see the timeline I'm putting together here: Vizzed History Timeline.

Staff has the power to add events to it. I can also give users the power to add events to it if others are interested in helping out. At the moment you can only add events, I haven't got around to adding the option for editing and removing events. Also note that the date of the events have to be in timestamp format (for the time being) so you can use a website like this to find the timestamp of a date.

What Events Should Be Added?
Feel free to suggest events that should be added. While the timeline will contain a few non Vizzed events (such as game systems and popular video game releases), all suggestions should be Vizzed related. Events can be something on Vizzed that happened which had a huge impact on the site or its community, when certain features got added, it can be various milestones, etc.

Post your suggestions here:

Vizzed.co Minecraft Server is Back Online!

It was down for a few years but the Vizzed.co Minecraft Server is finally back online (and working great)! Well technically it's been up for a few weeks now but a lot of that time was used to install necessary plugins, maintenance, migrate old data, and prepare it for its grand opening!

Anyone with the Java version of Minecraft can join using this as the IP address:
Vizzed.co


I've created an entire directory on Vizzed dedicated to our Minecraft server. It contains plenty of resources, information about every user, world and claim, and so much more. I've also got huge plans to continue expanding it with features so that the site and our minecraft are more integrated with each other. Anyways, the Vizzed Minecraft "site" can be found here:
https://www.vizzed.com/minecraft/


Be sure to take a look at the rules thread before using our server to avoid getting yourself banned. You can find the rules here:
https://www.vizzed.com/boards/thread.php?id=102259


I do a weekly Twitch Stream on Mondays at 1 PM central time where the staff and I discuss the server, our plans with it, any current events and more. If you're interested in it, check it out here:
https://www.twitch.tv/davideo7/
(be sure to follow my channel to get notifications)


For more additional information about the server, or if you have any questions, comments or feedback, go here:

Weekly Vizzed.co Minecraft Streams on Mondays @ 1 PM (CST)

Every Monday from 1 PM until 2 PM (central time zone) the Vizzed.co Minecraft Server staff and I will be doing a weekly meeting where we talk about the server, discuss our plans and allow users in the Twitch chat to give us feedback. It'll also involve a lot of general MC discussion and an opportunity to show off the server, the users of the server, and their creations.

The stream will be taking place on my Twitch Channel here:
https://www.twitch.tv/davideo7/
(be sure to follow my channel to get notifications)

The time and day of the week for our weekly meeting will more than likely change in a month. We'll make any adjustments needed for this so that it can involve as many users as possible.

2019 Spring Bomberman Tournament = Final Matchup at 2:00 PM Central Time on Thursday, 7/25/2019
The final matchup of the Bomberman '94 Tournament ends on July 25th with the final matchup taking place at 2:00 PM central time. The tournament started at the beginning of April and began with 25 of some of the best Bomberman players. It is now down to 5 players; here are those players and their overall rank (which will determine their player order):
P1. Davideo7
P2. Foxyman1113
P3. ruanito
P4. Barathemos
P5. brandon101101


Here's how the final matchup will work. At the end of each round, the user (or users if there is a tie for last) with the lowest trophy count will be eliminated. We keep doing this until only 1 user stands, which will be our winner. If you miss the stream, I'll be uploading the video to my personal YouTube account here:
https://www.youtube.com/user/davideo7/videos

The matchup will be live streamed on my Twitch Channel here:
//www.twitch.tv/davideo7
(be sure to 'Follow' my channel so you don't forget)

The final matchup will last anywhere between 45 minutes and 90 minutes. Here are the results and uploaded streams of all the previous years:
