I've started a mobile version of the site, accessible at

http://m.thevgpress.com

Currently it just displays today's news, but I'm working on the best way to scrolling days, and incorporating the rest of the site.

I have no way of testing it, but that's cool.

Good point.  I hadn't noticed that was still up there.

Suggestion:
Consider adding the number of articles posted (under the user avatar and comments posted). It may encourage people to post more articles, or at the very least observe who is giving back to the community.

Excellent idea because that's one I actually hadn't thought of.  I also plan on a points system for users, so that would fit in well.

If it's not a hassle, is it possible to sticky the podcast threads? Would make it easier to find...

You better be grateful.  Those two clicks were a real bother.

Nice. Yeah gamers like scores, so it all works.

The plan is to create a daily/weekly/all-time high scores and leaderboards with points for pretty much everything, weighted on significance (a review is worth more than a forum post is worth more than a topic view).  One of those things on the long list of uncompleted features LOL

^i think that will work well. I'm already trolling the net to find good news to post since I saw my low low article post.

Suggestions implemented should be worth extra points. J/k

I like this new feature. It's interesting that Iga has posted more news than GG, but GG has posted waaaaaaay more comments than anyone else here. No wonder people think this is a Nintendo fan site! LOL Nyaa

I'm trying to get into a rhythm with more consistent updates, and I'll be moving any announcements of changes here from now on.

I have updated the user pages to include the users' pages to include their most recent (if any) blog post.  I plan on following that up with more improvements in the near future, so any feedback would be appreciated.

I think that the user leveling idea that you have is very important in encouraging registrations and increasing site stickiness.

Do you have anything concrete on it yet?

I'm literally working on it right now.

Is there a way to add the amazon video game deal of the day to the vgpress store?

I'll take another look at integrating it directly, but I didn't find the option when I looked before.

However, any prices with Amazon Deal of the Day can still be purchased through the store by using the search box to find the product.  It should come up and listed at the deal price.

User ranks have been added to the site.  More presentational and statistical elements will be on their way, but for now you can at least see your site rank to the left.  This is based on your all-time VG Press score, and your rank is relative to the users (I am presently ranked 6th, i.e. the sixth highest scoring user on the site).
