Hey guys! So we've decided to rewrite the entire VF code from the ground up. The current code has been getting old and we want it to be more modern. This will be completed around February but we want your input while we work on it.
What this means:
Newer / modern interface, using newer web technologies.
Easier to use and navigate.
Simplified, more intuitive features.
Combining certain features / sections.
Removing certain features / sections (atleast for the first version of the rewrite)
This is going to be a big change, so we are asking our members to be involved and take a brief survey to help us make decisions for the VF rewrite, all questions are optional.
1) what do you like best about VF?
2) how can we improve VF?
3) what features do you use mostly on VF? (messaging others, checking friend updates, pictures, cults, etc)
4) what features / sections of VF do you use the least?
5) what purpose do you use VF for? (meeting new people, talking to your VF friends, talking to your IRL friends, chatting in cults, etc)
6) what are your views on html in profiles, and profile customization? would you prefer full html text editing or an easier way to edit your profile using templates and visual interfaces?
1) what do you like best about VF? Message boards, their simple layout is great and they're well run. The international diversity is great. 2) how can we improve VF? Find ways to increase traffic to the boards, they need to be better and more clearly linked to as I think most people don't know they exist. 3) what features do you use mostly on VF? (messaging others, checking friend updates, pictures, cults, etc) Message board 4) what features / sections of VF do you use the least? Cults 5) what purpose do you use VF for? (meeting new people, talking to your VF friends, talking to your IRL friends, chatting in cults, etc) Talking to vf friends and meeting new people 6) what are your views on html in profiles, and profile customization? would you prefer full html text editing or an easier way to edit your profile using templates and visual interfaces? Is there a reason we can't have both? My personal preference would be html
1) what do you like best about VF?The cults and the personal customization 2) how can we improve VF?Undo the rounded borders around icons, they aren't beneficial in any way and they mess up borders on icons And like I've mentioned like 4 other times, fixing the images, most of the time photos and icons won't load and there's just broken images. 3) what features do you use mostly on VF? (messaging others, checking friend updates, pictures, cults, etc)• Cults• Journals• Messaging others4) what features / sections of VF do you use the least?• Messageboards• Music• Chatrooms• Instant Messenger• Events• Classifieds5) what purpose do you use VF for? (meeting new people, talking to your VF friends, talking to your IRL friends, chatting in cults, etc)Talking to vf friends and chatting in cults6) what are your views on html in profiles, and profile customization? would you prefer full html text editing or an easier way to edit your profile using templates and visual interfaces?Even though I myself do not currently know how to code profile and cult/forum layouts, I do enjoy being able to request from design cult/forums, friends and the VFDesignTeam and don't really have any complaints about the set up we currently have.
I just wanna preemptively bitch about all the ui changes that will meet most of the things we request but still be violently resisted by literally everyone who requested them because different This sucks give us a classic mode jet
1) what do you like best about VF?- Cults- Almost universal openness/accessibility to all things - dramatically different from standard social networks with heaps of privacy/contact settings/friends-only centric bullshi- Drama2) how can we improve VF? - Zewe for admin- Current team admin needs to chill the fuck out. Been good lately but that's likely because it's been slow and dead, but squelching drama absolutely kills the place. People may bitch about it, but drama is the lifeblood of VF.- Zewe for admin- Gif support in gallery/top gifs section- Searchable tags for journals and pictures- Improved desktop-like moderation settings in cults. Give us fucking tickboxes on our phones man they don't take up much space.- Ability to copy image and page URLs from the app- GET RID OF ROLEPLAY CULTS3) what features do you use mostly on VF? (messaging others, checking friend updates, pictures, cults, etc)- Cults- Inbox/journals- Boards I guess4) what features / sections of VF do you use the least?- Flashchat is like the smelly special ed table in the cafeteria. Get rid of it and ban everyone who uses it.5) what purpose do you use VF for? (meeting new people, talking to your VF friends, talking to your IRL friends, chatting in cults, etc)- Feeling better about myself by browsing random profiles and realizing no matter what happens it'll never be anywhere near that bad6) what are your views on html in profiles, and profile customization? would you prefer full html text editing or an easier way to edit your profile using templates and visual interfaces?- Profiles are fine as is. Maybe add the blank template to free accounts, but please don't change profiles. It's not broken and not lacking in any way.
1) that it's not facebook, the concept.2) move away from flash, so android users can access media like music player etc ?3) messaging, bands, pictures, cults, 4) chat room, instant messaging, events..I used to use vf a lot for events but it's now neglected which is a shame, vf should be the heart of alt events, it's not hard to keep it updated.5) Meeting new friends and chatting6) I think you let the side down by removing the html/css info and examples , so what if there was no body to keep it updated, the basics don't change they just get forgotten
Lately I've been feeling like I'm missing something. Like I'm looking for something, but I just can't figure out what it is. It's something beyond ennui that I am having the hardest time even putting into words.
I'll feel like I want to listen to music! But then nothing sounds like what I want to listen to. Or just the thought of sound then seems unappealing. The same thing will happen with a show, or manga, or anything really. Nothing sounds right, but I have this sort of WANT. I crave something.
Maybe I'm just searching for a thrill. A little bit of hunger satisfaction.
But with WHAT?
Actually in astrology there is something that can help. I used to make bracelets with the gems for astro signs. It might sound nuts but there are certain gems for certain signs that can help you feel more grounded. Just a thought. I'm a gemini that was supposed to be a taurus. Can you blame me for not wanting to come into the world on time though? *laughs* Well I tend to gravitate towards Jade and my birthstone...they keep me centered.

So yeah. I made my journal about my parents in a car accident in October. My dad has been recovering great. He is able to walk around on a walker now. It makes me sad though because he can not go into the living room, where mom mom's ashes are currently. It even hurts me going into that room.
But yeah, he is recovering great and will be making a full recovery. He should be walking on his own two feet by the new year.
Let me tell you something about pits....
There are different types of pits that give you different feelings
1.You feel that your Pit is full of emotion so you:
a. bottle it upp until you burst
b. let all your emotions out
either way, you will end up emptying your pit of emotion and it will turn into your next type of pit.
2. You feel empty like all your insides just got ripped out and all that is left is a hollow corpse so you:
a. float about in your ghostly empty corpse state and wallow in your emptiness
b. try to fill your pit with unhealthy habits
c. try to fill your pit with healthy habits
if you choose a:
you will never change
if you choose b:
you will go in the dark path that leads you in a spiraling down fall into your pit
if you choose c:
you will develop habits that will make your pit full and make your life feel fulfilled
now here is the question I ask you:
What is your pit? (and more importantly) WHAT WILL YOU DO ABOUT IT?

Woke up in a good mood today, feeling amazing. I know I've said this already but wow how much difference it is to not feel like shit from coffee lol.
I'm not sure how other people drink it so much and still are stable. Maybe my mind and body is just different...Yeah I bet that's what it is.
Anyway, I haven't had breakfast yet, just sipping on some good quality tea that Vasa_Pixie bought me yesterday. It's pretty good, I feel so elegant
I'm just chillin doing some work today. If I can get a lot done before 5:00PM, I'm gonna try to go to the hair salon for UNDERWORLD tonight!
Man we haven't been to an Underworld event in forever. Should be fun and nice to just relax and have some drinks with friends.
Anyway, I'll be around and keep you updated VF. Hit me up!
PS: I totally was killing it at DJ practice last night! Just gotta keep updating my music library and practice harder. I can do this!
There are probably only a handful of people here that remember it. I will never understand why it was delinked from the main page. Maybe because it was hosted on a 3rd party service? Who knows. I really wish Jet would bring the IRC back.
