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

11 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!

That boy who sent a comment for you was banned for the violation?
What is the violation, and why posting violation isn't good for that webpage?

Excuse me Mr.INtense sir, but I have a friend here that had wanted me to post something for ya:

Dear admin.

I'm Soulstormfan. I just want to say that I'm really sorry for what happened in the past. I grew up, and now Im 21. I realized all my mistakes and want to ask you for you guys to give me a second chance. I promise that it will never ever happen again. Just please, give me a second chance to be one of your amazing site fans. I miss all of my friends and modwatching. If there is any drop left for me in your glass of mercy I'm asking you to recover my old account. Moddb.com . All I want is this last chance. That is all. Please have a heart.

-Soulstormfan

I found a problem that when I upload anything, says upload complete and filling all required things and clicking Save file, a message appears in the red box above Edit addon title and says: The file you uploaded could not be found, please try again. I tried 60 times to upload and the problem isn't fixed. Also tried in 1 week and it also didn't fixed. Any helps?
