As some of you know, we have a 'VF Sponsored cults' feature where we select 15 of the most active cults each month and give them special features / privileges, such as more chances to earn VF points and custom layout designs. There's been some recent drama / complaints about a particular cult that lost their sponsored status due to spam complaints.
Just to be clear - the 'VF sponsored cults' has always been an experimental extra bonus feature for VF, it's not a standard feature of the site and not something that we owe to any cult. We do try to provide the best customer service possible and our members always come first, but there are some features which are simply experimental and not part of our standard service.
As always we are indeed working on a number of ways to improve VF and some ideas are simply in testing phase.
We continue to try new ideas / experiments to improve the site and we appreciate everyone's support and feedback.
Several Bands / headliners including Marilyn Manson and Combichrist have reported news of the cancellation, although no official statement has been released yet. Combichrist reports: "We received notice this morning that the Alt-Fest Festival in Kettering, UK booked for the weekend of August 15-17, has been cancelled," they wrote. "As of now the organizers of the event haven't made an official announcement but unless there is a massive cabal afoot, we will believe the word we received from our agency. So we are sad to report to you that we won't be appearing in the UK this Summer..."
We've got a bunch of friends who were planning on going and they're wondering what is up but some of our band sources have confirmed that it is cancelled. This looks like it was going to be an awesome festival so we hope for the best!
For those of you that like to use emoji icons on your mobile phone, emojis will now show up on the VF site as well!
Emoji icons are basically emotes that people use on their iphones / android devices etc.
This was surprisingly hard to setup so hope you guys enjoy it! =)
