I am the founder of DBolical and creator of ModDB, IndieDB and SlideDB. My aim is to make it easier for gamers to find great games/mods no matter their stage of development. And more importantly give game/mod developers a place to share their work and grow their fanbase - without being dependent on press/editors gatekeeping the important news sites. If you have any ideas or suggestions, hit me up I am always available to talk with the community.

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest Blog: Site simplification

16 comments by INtense! on Aug 31st, 2015

A question for you to ponder. We have begun the slow march towards site simplification, as I believe it is important for us to make our site responsive, mobile friendly and easier to use. 13 years ago when I begun this work these buzzwords didn't exist, and while I generally don't do "buzz" I believe anything that helps us support our community and encourage content to be shared is a good thing. Here are the first few steps I'm contemplating:

  1. Merge videos / images / audio into one gallery system "media" and have videos ordered to the front
  2. Merge news / features / tutorials into one "articles" system
  3. Merge groups / events into groups
  4. Merge addons / downloads / mods into a more connected system (will be complex, still figuring this one out)

This will unify / change a number of URLs. Just wanted to see if you think this is wise or crazy or have suggestions for me, as I start thinking about this process. I'll keep you posted and thanks for the continued support!

Of course, if i follow Bintas theory, ie. the guy pays for the dinners and lunches, then i would feel that i'm entitled to some free food :)

In reply to twelve, i think i may have to work some color into my sig... not sure how i will go about it thou :D

Now to deal with Greg and Matt...

First off, Greg we all know what you think about all day every day (whenever you are not thinking about how good modDB is that is) and well this is confirmed with a little thing by the name of P.C. and some of the emails you have shown me... which I shall keep confidential as you requested :P

matty wrote:it is odd to see Scotty acting like a gentleman. Honestly, what are your motivating factors? Is it sex like Greg suggests? I think not, i think it is merely Greg who has the fascination with sex. Is it free food? Is it so he has fuel to insult us bachelors? We shall never know...

As I have demonstrated and proved with irrefutable evidence above, it is greg with the facinaction... mind you i cannot deny i share something similar :P you see however, young kiddies browse this site, and well i just gotta protect them, by counteracting gregs crap with some of my own just without certain words :confused:

so yeah, i cannot quite understand my arguement there.. oh and what free food is this? i don't eat maccas so that kinda rules out the free food element :(
