The new Video Game Outsiders website, FAQ, & giveaway! (UPDATED!)
Our older site served us well, but sometimes you just have to hit the “muthafuckin’ reboot” button. Aside from the fresh aesthetics, our site is now mobile friendly, organized, and has more potential! I hope to add additional sections and continue to encourage community involvement in the future. One of the things that makes VGO unique to me, is that we aim to incorporate our listeners into each episode – via voicemail, the live chat, tweets, and now – website comments as well!
I have also already started implementing suggestions from you guys. We now have a Discord Voice/Text Server (found under the drop-down chat menu at the top of the page), which can be freely used by everyone! Hop into the voice chat during game nights, to set up community play dates, or just to chat with fellow listeners and new friends. I’ve also created a quick contact form, for those of you who prefer to reach out to us without the use of social media or e-mail. Some of the old favorites, like our ShoutBox have returned with a new look. You can find it next to a new feature, the site media player, where you can hang out, play past episodes, and make real-time comments AS you listen. You know, stuff like “OMG Michelle is a PC snob” or “WTF, did John really just confess his love for a divorced dog?!?”. I have also embedded our live stream directly into the VGO live chat page, however we still encourage you to listen live over on RiotCast.com unless you are having issues with their player.
Please excuse me while I work out all the bugs, and don’t forget to comment below if you have any issues or suggestions. Thank you for checking our new home out, I hope you guys enjoy it!
- You do not have to use your e-mail to comment under posts, but I recommend you do so you can get a photo icon! Use Gravitar to link your e-mail to whatever one you wish to use to comment on our site.
- If you mostly visit our site to use the ShoutBox, and want a simple way to always have it land at that point on the page, simply bookmark the direct jump, here instead of the main URL.
- You do not have to use Twitter or Facebook to sign into the shoutbox, but if you do, you will get a photo icon and link to your profile. I recommend doing so, the service will never post to any feeds. To sign out of a name, press the white hamburger menu in the shoutbox.
- We now have a voice server!
- The ShoutBox works on ios devices, but can act wonky. You may have issues entering your first message, and then, on some resolutions, it can slide around. This is the price you pay for using an apple device. JK. As it stands right now that is something I have no power to fix in the core code, as I can only impact appearance and styling.
- On mobile phones (not tablets) the search bar in the hamburger menu does not work properly.
- On the site media player, even if you are logged in to your mylibsyn premium account, you will still see a lock icon over the bonus pay episodes, don’t worry, they work, just press them and hit play. This is not something I can change and is a feature libsyn wants to show premium episodes vs. free ones. If you are not a subscriber, simply press on any free episode and it will play.
- Adding forums is always an option down the line, but most people seem to have moved on from using them and now prefer comment systems. I was thinking about making a weekly post called “Open Mic” or “Community Spotlight” where people could use that as a forum, essentially to talk about whatever they wanted, or I could pose questions or topics.
- Adding scrolling VGO QUOTES under the shoutbox area. “I like to kill homeless people” -Michelle episode ???
- Comment editing coming soon
