Well, I'm a 30+ professional, in the IT field, with plenty of internet, web, and programming experience under my belt. I'm the "douchebag" who coded several thousand lines for a custom php/mysql-based centralized friend-code database that i0n actually wanted to fold into WiiChat (before he vanished... him and I exchanged a number of emails on the topic).vgchartz just seems like a lot of fanboys and children, although there are some intelligent people it doesn't gimme that community feel I'm looking for.
I take my projects seriously and put a lot of effort into them. Currently the forum is subsidized through my other forms of income... so there's no advertising (for now... if it gets big I might have to try some so that I can upgrade it to a bigger server, but those who are bothered by it will just use adblock anyhow. That is well into the future though).
I don't see the forum as a source of income. In fact, I spent almost $200 advertising it over the course of this year (not money well-spent, I might add). I do it because I love computers, I love the internet, and I love the Wii (and Nintendo). I do it because I'm not satisfied with the other options out there. And I do it because I like managing online systems... which goes back to a BBS I ran back in the early 1990s (Fidonet and all!).
Nice to meet you.

Its certainly more dead than before....thats a given.
Whether its "dead" is a different story.
Its nowhere near as busy as it was about a month or so before the crash.
The "Thinking Thread" used to go through multiple pages per day, now it goes through one page a week...
"If I had a dollar bill for everytime I was wrong, I'd be a self-made millionaire and I wouldn't be singing..."
I find WiiChat not dead or is it that I wasn't here when it was active.
it just seems like some important people or well known people are active
My Friend Codes.... You got to ask me for them...
