VG247 – Welcome to our second year and your new site!

Monday, 2 February 2009 18:46 GMT By Patrick Garratt

vg247-logo-new

Happy birthday to us. VG247, “Britain’s leading videogaming news site,” according to the press release we just put out, is one year old. We launched on February 1, 2008, and had a fantastic first year.

To celebrate, we’ve done some stuff.

First things first. Our biggest anniversary news is that we’ve hired a full-time American journalist. Stephany Nunneley joins us today as our Associate Editor, US. We’re very excited by Steph coming on board, and believe her joining the staff will make a big difference to both the depth and daily time-span of our content. She was previously a news editor on Ziff Davis’s Gaming Today and a contributor to 1UP.

Secondly, we’ve redesigned the whole site and rebranded it as VG247, as you’ve probably noticed. We’re known web-wide as VG247 and the new URL’s more succinct. Immediacy ‘r’ us. The videogaming247.com address now forwards to the new domain.

As part of the relaunch, we’ve added a bunch of new stuff to make the VG247 “experience” more rounded. Here’s what’s changed:

  • New design – Martin’s done himself proud with the site’s new look. He also designed the original VG247, but decided to drop his famed rounded box corners for year two. We don’t question. He gets really angry.
  • We’ve added a forum – See. We listened. The “board” experiment didn’t really work, so we’ve added a “proper” forum for you. It’s what Shatner would have wanted. Go and use it. Remember, as with the comments threads, there’s no moderation and no one gets banned. We will remove spam – if you want to advertise on the site, look at this – and we’ll delete posts if we receive specific legal threats. But that’s it. We want you to live the hippy internet dream.
  • There’s a forum box on the homepage – This worked well for the comments threads, so we’ve added a recent activity box for the forum on the main editorial page. Keeps you nice and updated, isn’t it.
  • New “hot” features – Any stories we tag as hot will now get a “hot” headline in the news feed. We know it can be difficult keeping up with the news, so hopefully this’ll make skimming a little easier.
  • DigestThe Digest button on the top left gives you every headline from the last day. Again, this should make keeping up with things easier for you.
  • Social bookmarking stuff – Mart’s added a new share box at the bottom of every article that should include every social bookmarking link you’ll ever need. We hope.
  • We’ve dropped the “tag cloud” – No one liked it. No one used it. It’s been eliminated. We’ve added some links at the bottom of the page templates, but that should be it for “links” in boxes for now.
  • Staff page – As Christina Aguilera once said, we are beautiful in every single way. Here’s the proof.

That’s it for now. We sincerely hope you like the new look, and please bear in mind this is all work in progress; expect plenty more refinement as we go along. Thanks for reading, and here’s to year two!

    We’ll have a fiddle with the comments box, geki. It’s not working quite as it should atm. Something lost in translation a little, there.

    I must admit to preferring the old Latest Comments Page, but the rest is spiffy and lovely.

    Very, very nice job.

    Only thing I can complain about is that there appears to be a (VERY small) scroll bar at the bottom of the screen on 1924 x 768 resolutions. Take 10 or so pixels in length on any box should fix that easy enough.

    Really?! Would you mind sending me a shot of that? If possible, then please email to martin [at] eurogamer [dot] net. Ta!

    Well, congrats all – it looks mighty fine. Apart from those boxes around the comments. I don’t like those.

    And your ugly mugs on the staff page. But there’s nothing you can do about those, really. :-D

    Congratulations on the remake! Of all the remade sites I’ve seen this year, this is the nicest without a doubt. And I’ve got to hand it to the writers. During the first year this site has existed you’ve always been objective, and may actually call yourselves journalists! That’s a rare thing in the world of gamesites and blogs.

    Anyways, keep up the good work in 09 and beyond! And thanks to Pat for taking the initiative to make it all happen.

    Nice rework. Well done! My one and only gripe is that the Titles of the news in Latest Comments don’t stand out as much.

    #105 6 years ago
  106. Blerk

    I agree with Tonka, it is harder to make that panel out.

    Can’t we edit comments any more? And where’s the full ‘latest comments’ page gone?

    #106 6 years ago
  107. Patrick Garratt

    There’s a latest comments page on the top nav bar, but it’s broken at the moment. It’s on the list. Mart’s going to look at inline editing today.

    Which ones Blerk on the staff page? I thought he writes too?!

    #113 6 years ago
  114. Blerk

    I only write caustic comments. Sadly there is neither fame nor fortune to be made in this line of work.

    #114 6 years ago

    Ah ah, that makes more sense Blerk, I thought maybe I’d been alien abducted or something.

    Well, I can’t guarantee that you haven’t. Is your bum sore?

    The comments have always had boxes around them Blerk, you mentalist.

  119. dirigiblebill

    Check out them greys. Niiiiiice.

    Congrats Pat, Mike, Nathan, Stephany and Martin on a great first year.

    #119 6 years ago
  120. Blerk

    I… er.. what? :-?

    I don’t remember them ever looking like this.

    Is it the numbers that are new, then? Maybe that’s why the boxes suddenly look odd.

    #120 6 years ago
  121. mart

    It’s the numbers yeah.

    #121 6 years ago
  122. Blerk

    In that case I retract my previous gripe. And will log a new ‘I don’t like the numbers’ one. :-D

  125. Tonka

    I would personally (IMHO) prefere if the powers that be decided, in their infinite wisdom, that the Title of a news thread should precede who wrote the comment in the Latest Comments box.

    Please.

    #125 6 years ago
  126. mart

    The numbers are staying. It makes sense because of the paged comments. They don’t make quite enough sense yet though, since they start at 1 at the top of each new page, but I think we can fix that.

    #126 6 years ago
  127. Mike

    Can you change the logo, the sidebars, the format, and the comments completely?

    Just to see what it would be like, like?

    #127 6 years ago
  128. Blerk

    It wouldn’t be so bad if the numbers were inside the box rather than outside. I think.

    Actually, I like how the forum differentiates different posts with the alternating colours. That looks much neater and more modern than the “box around the text”.

    Can you change Mike for a hot lady?

    #128 6 years ago
  129. mart

    The comments are staying as they are, and you’re going to have to get over it :)

    #129 6 years ago
  130. Blerk

    What about Mike?

    #130 6 years ago
  131. mart

    I’ll see what I can do about Mike.

    #131 6 years ago
  132. Blerk

    Excellent!

    Hey Pat, did you get the email I sent to you last night?

    Too many comments to check if this has been mentioned already….

    Great redesign, but do you know that it no longer works properly with the PS3 browser?

    #137 6 years ago
  138. Michael O'Connor

    “Great redesign, but do you know that it no longer works properly with the PS3 browser?”

    Yes, they know. They’re not planning to fix it as far as I know.

    As a webmaster myself of numerous websites, I can tell you that traffic from internet enabled consoles makes up, on average, less than 1% of most sites traffic.
