What’s Cookin’: 11-Dec-11
Author :        Date : 11-Dec-11

Hello all.

Although it may seem quiet on the VGCL front, many changes have occurred over the course of the last few months.  The creative juices are definitely alive and well!

An entire site audit was conducted in October, 2011 to identify areas that required refinement, upgrades or, at times, a complete overhaul.  Based on these results, it was determined that the immediate attention would best be focused on improving existing content to enhance overall consistency in both presentation and quantity of information for a respective console.

This undertaking is ongoing and taking significant time, which is partly due to the custom design of VGCL (it is not a database driven site).  During this process, new features are also being added for every system.

The Games section of each console page is getting a complete facelift to include more screenshots, pictures of the game packaging as well a short text intro highlighting various aspects of available software for the respective system.

Owner’s Manual are now featured (when available) in the Specs section of the console page.  These have been accumulated through the years from various sources (credits provided for known sources).  A dedicated listing for the entire archive is also (in the Articles section).

Currently 85.1% of the objectives identified by the initial audit have been completed, which includes the additional elements listed above.  The target date to knock out the rest of these initiatives is 01-Feb-12.  Upon completion, the following lists activities of focus:

o Add a section to the Credits page to thank \ acknowledge contributors DONE
o Create base page for console – Magnavox O2
o Create base page for console – Nintendo Super Famicom \ SNES
o Create base page for console – Nintendo Virtual Boy
o Create base page for console – Sega CDX
o Create base page for console – Sega Genesis
o Create base page for console – Sega SMS
o Create base page for console – Sony Playstation

o Create base page for proto console – Atari Brain Age
o Create base page for proto console – Konix Multi System
o Fix Articles where comments section prematurely close \ display is off
o Upgrade code to CSS and increase base font size

As you can see, the proverbial VGCL plate is definitely full with new and exciting upgrades, additions and content.  As always, your comments and suggestions are always welcomed.
