    I wanted the same message for my website was the purpose of my question :). I figured it was some script.
     
  3. The website could be better considering that the website is worth 30 M according to https://www.worthofweb.com/website-value/gbatemp.net/ . 30M honestly seems lolz. but a different website puts it at around 300k http://gbatemp.net.websiteoutlook.com/ which I think is much more realistic. This website has to do a minimum of 6-12 thousand USD a month on AD revenue alone.

    It's pretty easy to setup and customize.

    you know what, let's settle for a middle ground here, 30 M + 300 K / 2 = 15,150,000
    anyone wanna offer $15.15M for the site kthx

    As for site revenue you are faaar far from the truth. FYI we're around 6M page views/month, and "only" 3M ad impressions. Since there are 1 to 3 ads per page that means a huge number of users are using ad blockers. 3M impressions will never get you anywhere near 6K/month

    Those estimations are rubbish. People like to think that owning a website like this is like having a money-making machine. It's not easy to understand the amount of work it takes just to get this far.
    PS: @Costello I wrote and looked for you several times on chat mate to discuss about the website (don't know if you remember), never had any luck besides the first times. Hope you are doing well.

    Cool Games section. Looks like another GBATemp Xenforo wonder addon.

    To make the Games section "come alive" I'd drive traffic to it by having an associated discussion thread (I already know about the cool chat thing).
    In terms of driving traffic to a location .... if you dont appear in "What's new" you are nothing !

    As new games are released, considering having one of the first threads associated to the game content item

    I was impressed that the search function did get a hit for the Game entry item.

    Great job as usual.

    Does this function as a multi-user wiki like thing where people with the right permissions can update items ?

    In regards to the discussion thread, the shoutbox integration is a much cleaner solution vs having separate threads for the thousands and thousands of different games. Nobody really uses them anyways, so I don't see anyone using threads either.

    In regards to additions, the database is taken straight from https://www.igdb.com/ as noted in the announcement thread for the feature. All information provided in the game center is taken directly from IGDB, nobody on the Temp edits them. IGDB does allow user submissions and edits, which are moderated and verified by admins before being posted so if you wanted to change some piece of information you would have to do so via their own site.

    Quite possible.

    Thread traffic often comes from What's New (ie. https://gbatemp.net/new/ ) and the games items do not appear in there. Replies to threads keeps threads in What's new ... which keeps traffic going and threads going.

    If the GBAtemp content item of IGDB information allowed multi-user editing that could help keep the content up to date which would make them more useful. The idea would be that each item would be the main repository for the topic.

    Regardless. The feat of pulling the data from that site and displaying it in Xenforo is just another GBATemp digital marvel.

    Are you guys still on Xenforo 1.x ?

    Cool. Thanks for the information :)

    obviously it hasn't reached its final form yet :)
    there are plans to improve the game center and better integrate it to the site, but it's a long and complicated process
    it's been on hold for a while now but works will resume eventually.

    the screenshot you posted is from a game that should be marked "mature", so there should be a warning asking if you're 18+
    it'll only ask you once though, not every time you browse a mature game. It stores the setting in your browser cookies like every other site

    Seems like with so many customizations migration to 2.x would be a challenge.

    I was an admin of another site that was using xenforo, so I looked around a bit at the admin cp. it looked more complicated than vbulletin, at least at first glance. :)

    Everything about Xenforo is better.

    Except maybe the permission system is a bit more complicated.
