PostSubject: VGM Revival! The return of Sonic!   Sat Apr 14, 2012 2:53 pm

Hey, guys me again. This routine is getting a little monotonous, don't you agree? Razz Anyways, I've e-mail'd everyone in hopes they'll return to this site. I'm looking for a mod or two, and hopefully I can appoint someone to Admin status.

First off I'd like to thank a few members for their contribution to this site:
Mario
Kirby
Kia
Ellis
All of you four were admins at one point, and you all helped improve the site in your own way. You were the first four who registered on this site, and hopefully you will all find your way back.

Next, I'd like to thank the five members who tried their best to keep this site alive in these recent times, and for that I can't thank them enough.
Mega Man (I cannot thank you enough for your commitment to this site, VGM would be long gone if not for you)
Sora
Fawful
Protoman
Bass

Again, thank you all for staying on for so long. Hopefully, I'll see you five around the forums.

Not much else to say here, but I'll quote myself from Mega Man's topic:

I've had a lot of great times on this site. I haven't always been consistent with my care for this site, but Mario helped alleviate that for me. How time flies... It's been four and a half years since I created this site. I was only in 8th grade when I did Razz . Over the years my interest in this site has unfortunately dwindled, and I got swept up with other aspects of my life. For that I apologize, I should have had more foresight and appointed another admin. Although, Mega Man did a remarkable job keeping this site alive as the sole Moderator left, (for which I cannot thank you enough). I never completely forgot about this site though. In the past two years of absence, I've checked in now in then (not logging in mind you) to see if VGM was doing all right. The topics were consistent and so was the roleplay (although not as nearly as plentiful as VGM's heyday) so I never bothered doing anything. But I have not checked in on this site in a long time, and since my last visit, this site has all but died. I created this site October 1st, 2007. Now over four years later, after being revived several times and seeing hundreds of members, this site faces extinction. I thank you all for your passion and interest in this site. Hopefully, with my return all of us-new and old members-can bring this site back from the dead. (What's one more time, huh?) I've e-mail'd you all and I hope you all get my message and return to this site. If I could hope for one thing, it would to bring this site back to where it was when it was in it's prime. These past four years on VideoGameMaddness have made my life a lot more fun, and hopefully they've done the same for you. This may be our final farewell, but it doesn't have to be. But that's all up to you.


If you'd like to comment on this announcement, feel free to do so. And don't be shy to ask anything either. I owe everyone a lot for not keeping this site up to date.

When I got that email saying you were back, I freaked out. I left this site like a year ago, and I'm ready to continue! Smile

P. S.: If you want to make someone a moderator, I recommend my brother, CW (Fawful). He loves the site so much.

P. S. S.: My Video Game Tastes have changed, so if I can, can I change my character?

I am very glad this site is revived and back up again. It's my first forum site, and it is just...awesome. Now that it's back, I hope to go on it even more then I did before. VGM RULES!

Well, that's three of us! If nobody else joins, us three can handle it. But since you sent those emails, there should be more people on their way

I bet Mega Man will come back, and I hope Mario comes back. I sent an email to him in 2011 asking for him to help us revive the site, since I knew his email from the site I made that he joined:

Thanks a lot for coming back you two its nice to see the both of you! At least some people check their e-mail. Razz

Hopefully between the three of us we can attract older members to come back on. I know Mario personally so maybe I can convince him to start posting again..

I'm probably going to wait until more members start coming on before I start taking Moderator applications. But expect to see those up in the near-ish future.

And yes, yes you can change your character Toon Link. Smile

It's good to see all of you again! I wonder how many times we've revived this site now? It's hard to keep track at this point.

If I knew people were trying to revive the site I would have been back sooner, but I'm guilty of never checking my e-mail... Razz

I can't wait to see everyone back online and topics being replied to consistently throughout VGM. I'm willing to do my part to help keep things flowing smoothly.

Well, that explains why you didn't email back. Anyway, good to see you back.

I've been hanging around. I've just been dealing with a lot of things in real life. I doubt I'm coming back, though. Just thought I'd let you know I'm not dead.

Even if you don't come back, it's still great to see you again! I can't remember the last time we were on at the same time. Razz

Hey, nice to see you again, Ellis. Even if you're not going to be active, stop by every now and then, yeah? We can catch up. Razz It's always nice to see a familiar face Very Happy

PostSubject: Re: VGM Revival! The return of Sonic!   Mon Apr 16, 2012 4:54 pm

So I had an idea. Why don't we try to make a huge story arc and try to finish it? It would span all kinds of different places in VGM, and... yeah. We don't have to, and we might already have one started with Survive (Day 1). But if you think this sounds cool, say so.

I love the idea. I've always wanted VGM to have some sort of major story arc/series of topics that all of the members on the site could be involved with and enjoy, but I don't think we'd be able to have a major event right now due to lack of active members.
I'd love to in the future, but we should wait for at least a few more members to become active so that they can enjoy the experience as well. The story would be too straight forward if we were the only four people posting in it.

Yeah, I'd have to agree with Mario at the moment. Great concept, unfortunate timing. If we could just get around 3 more members I'd be glad to start it up. But when we do the story arc, we should plan it out before doing it. Ya know, have a vague outline of what we want to do before we go ahead and do it. The last time we did a major story arc it kinda got de-railed from conflicting stories between posters. Razz

Well, if Mega Man reads the e-mail Sonic sent then he probably would return to the site. I just wish there was a better way of getting into contact with him quickly.

Kirby was on the site since day one, so she may be interested in returning as well. But it's been a long time, and I can't make any promises without contacting her about it.

Bass may also want to return, but he may be too preoccupied with WCC to go on another forum site.

I'd love for everyone to return, I really miss talking to everybody, I just hope they're more reliable with keeping up to date with their e-mails then me. Razz

So, I was in the car, and an idea dawned on me. Would it be alright if I did something like... do some kind of timeline to show what happened in the VGM universe?

Example
*Sample Topic*
*Short Summary*
l
v
*Sample Topic*
*Short Topic*
ETC.

Well, that would be cool, but I think Sonic/Mario should help do that.


P.S. I was thinking of doing the story arc too.

All the users on the site can contribute ideas to the story arc topics. But I think actually managing and creating it should be left for Sonic and Moderators to handle.

For the timeline I would love to see your ideas. I'd like to be involved in the process as well to help manage it.

Since we probably shouldn't be posting so much in the announcements section I made a topic where we can all give our input towards ideas for a story arc topic: VGM Story Arc?
