Default The latest info on VGVids

Well, I think I'll let out a few more details of the site:
  • The site will accept user-submitted content in various formats, primarily videos, but audio, pictures, and text will be allowed as well. Unlike most image boards, you can only submit your own content. We will be hosting everything. There will be no hotlinking YouTube videos.
  • All content will be moderated before it is posted for quality control.
  • The site will initially not host any kinds of Let's Plays, original web series, comics, remixes, fan-fiction, or news. Whether or not any of these types of features are implemented in the future will be up for debate later on. Reviews, however, will be allowed.
  • Any commercial video game is acceptable. Not sure on mobile apps yet.
  • This site will be disconnected from Victory Road. It will have its own accounts and login system.
  • VGV will not be a social network or have community features beyond comments and obvious content submission.
  • The primary scope of the site will remain under wraps for a little while longer. I will say that, while sites that do accept the same type of content exist, I can't really find any dedicated gaming sites that allow anything beyond text. Some fan sites have owner-submitted content, but it's out of user control.
  • Originally, this site was going to be Mario Minus World, and I wanted to make it 9 years ago, but until last year, I had no idea how to make it.

Will "Typical Night In the VR Chatbox" make a return under a new name? Stay tuned to find out.



I'm excited, Cat. This will be great for us 'cause the videos will always be there and easy to access.

VGV is unrelated to the chat.

I was talking about a series of videos I did on Youtube back in the day of everyone chatting in the chatbox.

I've just realized that you used thread 10,000 to announce info on VGV. More strategic than I thought.

Nah, it's not going to be a Reddit clone.

When you say reviews are available, can that include TV shows based on video games? Because I'm looking into making episode-by-episode reviews of just that.

I believe it's about time to reveal the official name: VGVids.

So, yes, it did stand for "Video Game Videos/Vids," but that's not the actual name. Some of you may have already figured it out by being sneaky, but I must thank you for being a good sport and not spoiling it for everyone else.

As for progress, it's coming along nicely. The beta testing should open in July, and the public opening should be in August.

So it isn't really called VGV? That was a decoy, a case of tomfoolery?

But let me rephrase,this is a YouTube for video games. So instead of having to go to YouTube and brush through videos to find a good video on the video game we can come here. Also will this accept... Spriting videos? It is sorta video games because you use video game sprites. (I'm talk tutorials and such).

Not quite. Everything will be moderated for quality. It's going to focus more on factual stuff like glitches than on fan stuff like sprites and hacks. At least, that's how it will start.

I know of an A.I. exploit in Pokemon Puzzle League. Perhaps I can get it on video somehow for this.

I'm quite excited for this. The fact that this community can bring original content, that will be displayed as a gallery is just nice and unique. I'm looking forward to this.
