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

20 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!

Dear mod-db members.

Master Intense and his loyal fellowship clearly want to improve this web-site. It's obvious this site is primarily dedicated to mods and games, so we as a/the community should promote and support the mod-db staff, mods and games.

So, if you're a hard-core player or a casual gamer, try to promote this site and its creative members. You should definitely mention this astonishing social network on other sites. You've been here for a while, you joined for free and you enjoy numerous entertaining mod-db features, so now the time has come, for you, to make sure this web-site will get better and that it will stay here as long as possible. Tell your friends about this site in reality and via internet. Your efforts will be greatly appreciated by the community.

This site deserves to be number 1 as a social network and the gaming site. It's the ultimate destination for all people. This site offers a neat interface and everyone has the possibility to create something here- whether it be a fan-club, mod or anything else. I would promote kinky matters, but I cannot. :D So, be the change you wish to see in the world... make this site the change you want to see in the world. Thank you for your attention.

Cheers - Youtube.com :D

It only takes a few moments from mod teams to promote this website for all the great features it has. So make it a goal to promote the website in all of your release promo videos. Also only host it on this website for even more support.
