Christmas Music Stream ON Wednesday from 4-7 PM (CST)

On Wednesday, 12/19/2018, from 4-7 PM (central time zone) we'll all be listening to and rating the songs from the Christmas 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:

Let's Welcome the New Moderator Team

The new team of moderators have been hired. If you didn't get hired, please don't feel bad or left out. There were so many amazing choices to choose from and so the voters really had to find a way to narrow it down. I'm happy and comfortable with the team selected and we even had a surprise 11th pick added to the team that the moderators themselves voted in. Anyways, if you weren't voted in, there will more than likely be users stepping down for various reasons and their spots will most likely be filled quickly. I also plan to do something similar with the Site Staff soon so please reapply for that if any of you are at all interested

Here's our new team of Moderators :

zanderlex :
Zlinqx :
supernerd117 :
Lexatom :
Light Knight :
m0ssb3rg935 :
Furret :
ZeroTails :
Minuano :
Boured :

The team and I will do our best to bring this forum back to the level of activity and excitement it once had. And we need more than just the moderators to accomplish this goal, we need the contribution of the entire community so with that said, let's all work together to revive this cyber family

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.

New Generation of Mods Begins - Apply Now!

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:

Competition: Create A Christmas Theme for Vizzed.com!

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

Competition Ends and Voting Begins
