Hey guys, just letting you know about some changes to the site that are now in effect.
First of all, I have redone the Member Section. Now membership will only have a place in the Forum, it will not carry over to the main site. I did not like the way WordPress handled members, so I decided I would not use it as a means of registering users anymore.
The old Forum, which used the BBPress Platform was getting really spammy (Over 4,000 Spam User accounts, and hundreds of spam posts). BBPress was nice because I could integrate it with WordPress, so that I could share users between the Forum and the GamerGlitch Main Site. I will miss this integration between the Forum and Main Site, however the new Forum is running on MyBB which is a lot better and more wholesome Forum Platform than BBPress. Many important features which were not present in BBPress (the Old Forum) such as Private Messaging and a Friends List are readily available in MyBB.
Unfortunately one result of removing the membership feature of the main site, and getting rid of the old Forum is that all the current accounts were lost. This means is you had an account at GamerGlitch.com in the past, it has been erased. You will have to register for a new account to log into the Forum.
Also, since there will be no membership feature for the main site, when you comment on posts you will have to do so with a Name/ Email Combination instead of using a username (for those of you who used to have accounts, if you didn’t have an account commenting will remain the same).
One more change to GamerGlitch.com is that we are now only displaying 15 Posts at a time Per Page. We use to have it so that when you visited a Category page, Call of Duty: Black Ops Glitches, for example, It would display the Most Recent Glitches, and then every single Black Ops Glitch in Alphabetical order below that. We found out that because in some sections we have over 100 glitches, it was causing a huge load on our server. This resulted in pages loading slow, and in our Host Temporarily taking GamerGlitch Down because of CPU Over-usage. Limiting each Category to 15 Posts, and Dividing the Posts between multiple pages Per Category will speed up GamerGlitch and keep the site from being Taken Down by out Host for Server Overloads.
We set it so that there are 15 Posts displayed Per Page, however, we are looking for Out Users’ Opinion on this Matter. For this reason we have created a Poll Here: Post Per Page Poll.
