You may have noticed over the last two weeks a couple of things changed. One is the new report card at the end of each review. It’s now clean, minimalist, and professional looking. A simple blue background for the score, white lettering inside a white circle, clean text on the right, and then a piece of art blended into the background of the card. I love it and this is staying permanent probably forever. It took me two weeks to manually edit all report cards for every review on the site and there are well over 1,000 at this point. It’s just me doing this on free time and it takes time editing each card. I won’t EVER be doing this again! As you can imagine, it’s a daunting task. There are now no longer any scores at the top of the page so it’s one cohesive report card at the bottom.
The next thing are the deletion of around 50 articles. These are old outdated products that either no longer exist, can’t be purchased anymore, or are just badly written or maybe a report card was missing and I have no idea what score it had. Some things gone are older mobile game reviews. I looked them up and they no longer exist on Android or Apple and were long deleted by the publishers. There’s really no point in leaving these up as some were 7 years old! Some mobile games would disappear off of one store and stay on another so I adjusted that.
Another thing adjusted are updated console availability for older games. As time goes on more and more games are being re-released as remasters or compilations so I want to add the tags and categories as well as images for the newer system they are on so more people know where to get them at. I also deleted reviews from way back when I first started doing this as a teenager. Those reviews were lower quality and maybe one or two paragraphs each. They weren’t in depth enough and I didn’t like having these terrible reviews just sitting on the site. There were probably 50 of those as well but they were deleted maybe a year ago and I just never mentioned it until now.
I also deleted the scores off of book reviews so sadly, no scores for books anymore. I haven’t had time read a book in years so I don’t even know when the next one would go up. I will probably just use the report card for those and comics if I ever get around to reading and reviewing more. But overall, that’s it! I’ve been doing this for 12 years now and it’s insane how many hits I get a day without any advertising or anything. So, if you’re reading this and you happen to be a long time viewer, thanks for you dedication!
