VampireFreaks Mobile App News:

Android: fixes for images / icons which were not displaying properly. added 'remember me' functionality.
VampireFreaks Version 3.0 will be released as a Beta version on December 1st!
This is a complete site rewrite from the ground up that I wrote using newer web technologies and is designed to be easier to use, more modern looking with dynamic page updates, and mobile optimized.
So yeah the reason why we haven't really had any code updates on VF lately is because I've been working on the VF rewrite.
Fair warning that it will be missing a few features at first but the new code is a lot more organized and will be much easier to update and upgrade.
Once the Beta is released we'll ask you guys for input / suggestions on it and I'll continue to fix it up for a month until we switch over to the new code. I know some of you guys are going to hate it because you hate change but I think overall you guys will really like it. The site has been in desperate need of a rewrite and it will be a lot easier to keep the site updated and have better functionality.

dark-freaks Thanks for the explanation on what they mean by Designers. I thought it had to do with code and html and so fourth. I agree they need to be compensated for the work they do on VF. Contract designers I think would be an option? Security seems better as of late and the site hasn't gone done that i'm aware of while checking my sources.

I'm excited to see the changes you make with 3.0. I feel like a good revamp will make large strides for boosting the sites appeal to new audiances and boosting activity. I feel like making a switch to responsive graphic design is going to make a huge difference. One of my biggest peeves currently is that the images and content don't scale to the moniter size, so I often have to scroll to see the whole image or to find the next button on profile images.I know its probably too late to offer my services and that you already have a lot of people to help, but if you need any help getting the site ready I would be glad to assist you. I like this site and I want to see it do well. The only thing I would ask is the right to use the work I do in a design portfolio with proper credit to the site. I have three years of professional graphic design experience; My specialty is pixel art, illustration, logo design and print design, but I also have a basic understanding of SEO and UI. I've done a lot of beta testing through my internships at Seriously INC and Focus Designs. Most of my design isn't up on a portfolio because the rights to the work are retained under the respective graphic design firms, but I can privately message you examples of my work if you would like.Keep me posted if there is anything I can do to make the release of your new site easier.Thank you for all your hard work,Cassandra

the image size will be consistent in the rewrite it will look the same on desktop & mobile. Code is more Mobile & PC friendly and mostly up to date & more streamlined to be easier to update in the future.
Our friends at the Steampunk World's Fair are working on a new project!
These guys know how to party and we always have fun at their events. Check out their Kickstarter for the mind-bending, darkly satirical Steampunk rock opera Absinthe Heroes.

Might I just add that 11/11 is also, y'know, Veteran's day? I know a few folks who - if not in the Goth scene - are certainly gamers and "alternative" and who also served in the military.I kinda feel like that's the direction this should've been aimed in, no bigs.
Thanks to everyone that came out to our Halloween Massacre event!!
We had some pretty awesome costumes! And i had plenty of fun messing with people who couldn't figure out who I was behind the costume.

So it's been back to business-as-usual this week now that Halloween has come and gone. Catching up on work and will be posting the VF Halloween Contest Finalists a bit later today. For now we have the VF Store Post-Halloween Depression Sale!
We hand-picked a few of our favorite items to be at a special discounted price for you guys:
I could do the usual long ass post explaining away how I have been away for a bit and what all I was doing during that time ... but I am pretty sure anyone who cares only cares that I am alive so ... I'M ALIVE! I was actually very amazed when I went to check my friends list and all of my friends said "mutual friend". That really did make me smile. I honestly could not blame someone for removing me because I have to disappear from time to time to focus on real life stuff, but the fact that you all kept me around really did put a smile on my face. Thank you. And i didn't forget any of you either.
As I settle down from everything I have been doing, I will probably be shooting out a lot of personal letters.
On a side note, I can't wait to get home to Europe ...
Best case scenario I will be in a mental health care facilities for the next 7 or more months. Worst case is jail, morgue or just mugged at the shelter. Cops here treat the homeless like crap, assumed guilt rather then innocence. Even though I have no record and never had a ticket filed against me I am intimately aware of what the tip of a their handguns feel like pressed to the back of my head.
Thought about begging my parents (when I'm almost 33 and still am having problems getting my life together) to help me but it doesn't seem like a good idea considering we parted ways in 2008 over a similar thing, asking for help.
I'm on this work 3-4 years, screw it up, live off my savings for 2-3 years and then end up homeless. I vowed when I left the shelter in 2010 I wouldn't go back. I'm smart but I'm failure when it comes to things you need to do to keep your life going. Honestly VF has been one of the only things to keep me going even with the drama, people that forget they made a vf account and occasional troll. It seriously has been a good place for me and has extended the amount of time where I could deal with the stress and anxiety I have before it finally bottoming out so bad I can't help myself.
guessing the idea of internet/gaming addiction may come up in therapy so if i am successful I might not even really be able to come back if I complete a stint that has a positive effect. I just hope they don't turn me into an unfeeling zombie like the last 2 times I was on medication.
Thank you any friends I still have. sorry to anyone I treated poorly. I love VF.
I'm sorry things seem to have gone badly for you. I thought you were living with roommates? I'm glad VF has been good for you, I know how that feels. If you know what meds turned you into a zombie, tell them you'd like to try something different.
