ran this event and made some stats for us:

* We added over 600 games into the VGG database in a two week span.
* That is 1.8 % off the entire VGG database.
* Over 2000 geekgold was made by the users by adding these games.
* Due to the event we also handed out 1467 extra geekgold bonuses.
* 3 users submitted their first game ever into our database.
* 12 users got the third threshold and added at least 31 games.

Keep an eye out, there will be a second game submissions event later this year.

VGG Admin Gazette - News update Apr '16

Did you visit my www.kobudovenlo.nl? It has game info

Time for another update from me! With more admins posting news updates, I have less to cover. So thank you for that!

Business/Construction theme
We've expanded the Business theme to Business/Construction to include the place city/town building games in.
There still might be a number of games with currently only theme "Other" which now should be labelled "Business/Construction". I trust my fellow VGGeeks to find and correct those!

Hall of Fame updated
page: Hall of Fame
I recalculated the list of Ultimate VGG Uploader microbadge owners. HUGES CHANGES
First off, a great applause for Forbidding. In the last months since my previous update, Forbidding added another 1000.9 points widening the gap to the #2 to a stunning 1460 points! 1000.9 points in a few months! That's enough to get you in the Hall of Fame, when you start at zero!
Frumpish also did great, increasing a place in the ranking and becoming the new #2, by adding 247.75 to his score.
Andrewhodkinson managed to rise 3 places, becoming the new #4, by adding 206.75.
LostDice added another 26.25 but had to give up a place, due to andrewhodkinson's run. Now at #6
Sirjeyhmis added 86.45 points, enough to rise 2 spots, to #7
These were all the HOFamers which increased in score more than 25 points.

kidsplinter and jgoyes now have new company: Bryce is now also a Herculean microbadge holder. Which one of these three will enter the Hall of Fame first? Or will we be surprised by a newcomer, suddenly amassing 1000 points, like Forbidding just did?...

We were pointed in this thread to the fact that the Visual Novel needed some cleaning up. So after some discussion it was decided to add a new genre to the VGG Genre database: Walking Simulator.

Over 50 games already got added to this genre, for example: Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Gone Home, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Journey (2012), The Stanley Parable, ... and many more.

Since it's almost 2016 I'm looking forward and advertising a bit about the new plans. If you like, join us.

The 2016 Videogame Challenge

First of all, we are having another gaming challenge in 2016. Like this year the goal is to play games, 'beat' them and collect gaming hours. New this year is that we added an extra microbadge for more casual gamers. The first reward tier is now put on beat at least 5 games and get at least 50 hours played. To join, just add an item to the geeklist. General chatter, microbadge claiming, questions, ... can be posted here: The 2016 Videogame Challenge!.

The 2016 Pillar of the Community

The pillar of the community is getting an overhaul in 2016. It's not necessary to participate in 12 events this year but we are going to give points for contributing to the site. More information can be found here: The 2016 Pillar of the Community Badge.

The 2016 VGG community gaming goals

This one is still being set up as we speak. We are planning to do 6 community gaming goals. 6 goals that we need everyone's help with. We are still looking for input and volunteers to help out along the way to achieve these 6 goals.

For the last of the The 12 events of VGG the aim is to bring joy to VGG, users: SilvaShado and ngwilliam ha a great idea. They started up a Video Game Advent Challenge.

It's a similar idea from that on BGG that gets people to play people every day from the 1st of december up until christmas! The idea is to play a videogame at least 1 hour a day. It doesn't matter what game as long as you are having fun. Plus they gave an option, in which you should try to play specific games.

Check it out and join this great initiative! Just add an item to the geeklist:

VGG October 2015 report

Okay a tad latter then usual, busy busy busy but i also wanted to make the announcement for the VGG Christmas Card & Secret Santa exchange and that got priority for me. But here we are with the VGG October 2015 flashback!

Let's start of with the monthly review contest. Last month the optional theme was: "Eponymous - Review a game whose hero features in the title of the game. E.g. Duke Nukem Forever, Alan Wake, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA". We had 7 entries and voting is on it's way. you still have until saturday 7th to vote. Video Game Geek Review Contest - October 2015

Well since most users around here also like boardgames (apparantly there is some obscure site called Boardgamegeek around on the internet) and it's october, which means tons and tons of new boardgames being released at SPIEL ESSEN I decided to have the 12 events for october to feature 'Digital Boardgames'. This resulted in: VGG Event: Digital Boardgames 07.10 - 16.10, with 26 users earning this months special microbadge: mb.

I was doubting to go with either the boardgames or another big event in october: Halloween. I decided to go with boardgames but also ran a side event (last one had been in june). With these side events users can get bonus points for missing other events. So Halloween was it's theme: Halloween (12 events side event) and we had 2 users writing something for it.

Even more Halloween fun during VGG's Second Annual Halloween Avatar Dress up! We had so much fun last year that we organised this again. 103 users joined us and changed their avatar for the holidays. They all were thanked with a nice microbadge: mb. There were 14 more participants then in the first edition in 2014. Thanks to a lot of generous VGG'ers we also got some prize support and 20 videogames were distributed as prizes between all the contestants! Thanks for joining and an even bigger thanks to the prize givers.

I mentioned them already but sign ups for the 2015 VideoGameGeek Secret Santa and 2015 VideoGameGeek Christmas Card Exchange are running, you still have a few days to join. Don't forget to sign in with the exchange link (it's not enough if you just post in the thread).

And in addition to the other gaming platforms we are also looking out for people to share their UPlay member information so you can all play together on Uplay as well! Who else is on Uplay? Just want to add you as a friend on there!.
