VGS PWA & new Ranks system

Hey all, just wanted to share that we've completed some routine maintenance on the site. 

This included a security patch, as well as some new features. 

First off if you're on mobile (phone etc) you might notice a little popup that says you can add VGS to your home screen. This is a PWA version of the site and is really just a container which you can launch, as it says, from your home screen. It can actually be pretty handy if you're a very regular user on VGS, as it becomes app-like in how it runs, and will be separate from your usual browser tab system. Of course this is all entirely optional and you can just click the little "x" if you don't want it. 

Further, the latest forum software update came with a new ranking system which we're going to be rolling out. It's similar to the existing badges we have in place now, but more closely tied to your actual forum activity, posting, following content, sharing, likes, etc.. It's pretty robust and I'm excited to dig into it to see what we can do with it. 

As ever, thanks to all of you for being here, and especially to the subscribers whose support pays for the site. You're directly impacting our ability to keep the site alive and updated for the future!

Thanks for the update, Gloves!  Will there be a separate post explaining the new Rep system, or whatever that specifically is?  Anyway, it sound cool to me!  I love badges and fake internet points! 😄

Yeah once it's full rolled out there'll be an explanation of how it works.

I was about to come complain about  member ranking being gone but I see this is part of the "plan".  I look forward to seeing this new improvement.  I do think posting is not the best way to track and promote people to engage more in the community.

So now I have 6379 posts for nothing?! 😂

When I have 5,000+ post I'll be sure to complain to Gloves that post is the best way to measure engagement in the community 😏

Exactly! How else am I supposed to qualify as a social media influencer and content creator if my post count is meaningless? 😂

Holyshit.....I thought you had a cat as your avatar.  I COMPLETELY didn't see that you still have your old avatar

 

OK so you need ideas, we use @CasualCartas slave art labor again.....You want something that is more uniform looking or it changes looks/theme with each rank
