We definitely need to overhaul the catalogue. I think a large chunk of the games are MIA.

I've offered to host Viral Games on my website and while not many of you have visited, it would allow me to run Viral Games much more efficiently. Now, if Fream or the VG community just doesn't want me running it that is fine too but sooner or later this is going to have to move to a new home. I could literally have this up in the forums in a day or two. It would however require users to create accounts and all that jazz.

Some ideas I have thought about would be to expand Viral Games and/or rename it to include other games. I personally have a bunch I would be able to offer the program. I think there also needs to be a purge of sorts and just figure out exactly how many games we've lost and what is technically still in the system. It's a lot of work but I'm willing to do it.. we just need to either move it to ZTZ or to my small gaming community. Either way, it's time.

If we move this to my site I'd like some help with managing it. If we move it to ZTZ I'm hoping the admins there would be able to give me access to continue managing this.

Any input from anyone? (if anyone actually reads this anymore) :)


Yeah, I know originally you, spankynspronkle, mattism and I all volunteered to help with the Viral Games over on Z2Z. I just messaged Fream and he said he is still willing to set it up on the Z2Z Forum. The best way to get him is through the discord app. He's on almost all day.

Several might be in buffs' possession. Last September, he posted in Checking In, "received Kez's big box o'games.." As far as I can tell, these haven't been publicly catalogued. I imagine they are mostly the games marked as Storage under Kez's row of the tracking sheet, but maybe there are some errors.

I'll see if I can get some clarification on which games were received.

You should definitely touch base with Kez. He did a massive clean up in 2014 (hence the sheets name) as there were similar issues of games that were missing or worse, people with VG's that are no longer active on the site or responsive to requests for them to send the games back.

Viral Games is moving!

Postby kbeau73 » Wed Jun 28, 2017 2:18 pm

Viral Games is going to be moving to another site. I've been thinking about where it should go and I've decided I will be hosting it at Casual Gaming Community. We had talked about moving it to Zed To Zed but I've decided against it for a couple of reasons. Nothing personal and I know a lot of previous users still frequent that site but seeing as I will be the one running it, I'd like to have access to do whatever it is I need to do and when I need to do it. This is one of my biggest pet peeves about it being currently on this site. My site has been up for a couple of years now and it's been smaller but we like it there.

Feel free to check it out at http://casualgaming.forumotion.com. Once you log in and create an account, I will go ahead and give you access to the Viral Games sections. Please be patient as the Viral Games will be under construction for a little while. Mattism and spankynspronkle have offered to help so I'm hoping their offers still stand.

Some items we're going to be working on...

- updating the viral games catalogs
- attempting to retrieve games from inactive users
- potentially expanding the catalog of games to include other games
- we will be creating a new spreadsheet without tiers (most likely will be aplabetical)
- identifying users that haven't logged in but might still want to be in the program
- a private message will be sent to all of those that have participated in VG to give the new site and also attempt game retrieval.

As this is a community and I'm only taking the helm, if you have comments, suggestions or complaints... feel free to bring them to me, spankynspronkle & Mattism should they want to assist.

Personally I'm excited because I'll be able to move messages and such which will allow me to keep the forums a lot cleaner.

Any input is appreciated and looking forward to getting this thing going.

Thanks to all of you that are keeping this community alive.

Just going to say I am disappointed in this. You had people willing to help run it on ZtZ. With a lot of the community visiting that site it is the better place for VG. I believe moving it to your site is a mistake.

Thanks so much for the offer, it's definitely appreciated but it's easier for me to manage (access wise and such) from CGC.

I really do appreciate you and Spaceman offering.

Your opinion has been noted. I have people that are willing to help it on my site. Maybe more people do visit there but really, what does that have to do with anything? Most viral users log in, post their VG message and go. Very few are active parts of the forums so what's it matter if they log into my site or ZtZ? You've made yourself clear and I respect that. I'm sorry you are disappointed but I can't and won't try to please everyone. My main function is to keep VG running and the easiest / least time consuming way to do that was to host it on CGC.

Please let me know if you are planning on still being a part of the community or not. If not, I can send you an address to send the games back when you've finsihed with them.
