Image Upoader & Photo Album = New Features!
I put together a suite of new features for uploading, managing and viewing pictures. It's available to all users and can be found in the Developer Center.
We've had a Photo Album that was created years ago but it was outdated and using the old site code and format. I made sure to include all features in the previous photo album and I also made sure to migrate all of the photos to the new system.
Before I go over the available features, I wanted to quickly point out that the images and albums can be embedded to any page that your a staff or admin of (forums that you moderate, your threads, your profile, etc). To do this, go to the page you want to add an Image or Album to and at the top of that page click the 'Add Content' at the top of the page and from the '
All displayed images not only show title, user, date and thumbnail but they'll also show image view count and number of comments. It makes browsing through 100s of images far more enjoyable.
There's a lot of options available for sorting through images. You can order the images based on Name, Size, View Count, Date, etc. You can filter the images based on Type and Category You can do a text search which returns all images with matching titles and keywords
Image Uploader / Editor
You can upload images as large as 500 KB and all uploaded images will have a small thumbnail generated. The uploaded image page will provide you with image specs and also HTML and Forum codes that you can copy for easy pasting.
There are a few options available when uploading and editing:
-Image Type lets you choose where the image will be used on the site
-Image Category lets you add your very own category which will help you and others filter through images
-Image Privacy lets you choose who can view your image. Public means it'll appear in the search results, Unlisted means it'll not appear in the search results (can only be viewed with direct link) and Private means that only you can view it (or anyone you add as an Admin to your image page)
-Unique lets you specify whether this is something created by you or not
-Keywords (only available after uploading) let you add keywords to your image that makes your image appear when that specified keyword is used in the search engine
The image pages let users leave comments on images and also offers additional details of the image such as how many people have seen the image, how many unique users, the last user to view it, upload date, the last time the details of the page were
This simply displays all of the albums created by users and also offers a few filter and search functions.
Album Creator / Editor
Anyone can create their own album but you can only add images that you uploaded (or are admin of) to the album you created. The albums have a few options available that work the same as the Image Uploader / Editor, which include Category and Privacy. It also has an option which lets you choose the order the images get displayed in.
Work on Albums Together
After you've created an album, you can make someone an staff/admin of the album so that they can also add their uploaded images to your album. To make someone a staff/admin of your album, click the 'Edit Page' link at the top of the page and add their name into the 'Add Mod' section.
Here's an example of an album page:

Join the Summer Netplay Tournament = Signup Extended to July 20th

Join the Summer Netplay Tournament = 2 Days Left to Sign Up
This more than likely will be the very last netplay tournament that I can host due to Flash being discontinued (the RGR Plugin requires flash). I'm hoping to have 1 last netplay tournament.
The scheduling in this tournament is very flexible and can work around just about any schedule. Users have control over which games they play each week.
To join, or for more information, go here:

Summer 2020 Netplay Tournament: Teams = Sign Up to Win 300K Viz or $300 Steam Games
This competition will involve 2 player teams facing off against other 2 player teams. I haven't been able to host this competition in a few years now due to lack of interest. Since this might be the last netplay tournament, I'm really hoping we get enough users involved.
Results of previous years:
Summer 2017: Triple Trouble Win
Summer 2016: Vizzéteers Win
Summer 2015: Vizzéteers Win
Summer 2014: Retro Renegades Win
Summer 2013: Kogarasumaru Win
This tournament will last for 6-10 weeks, 4-6 of those weeks being regular weeks and the last 2-4 of those weeks being playoff weeks (all depends on how many users sign up). The 8 teams with the most points will enter the playoffs.
If you have a tight schedule or don't know how your availability is, don't worry, you'll be able to schedule a day and time for your matchup each week. You can also get a backup player on your team who can fill in for whenever you can't make it to a match (or you can sign up as a backup player). You, your team and your opponents each week will come up with a day and time that works for all of you to do your weekly matchup. In other words, it's a very flexible tournament.
You must enter as a team, so find someone who is willing to be your teammate and let me know what your team name is but if you can't find a teammate, just let me know that you're interested in joining but don't have a partner and I'll find someone for you. Your team may contain a 3rd user, a user who will basically be one of your backups in case one of you can't participate in a matchup in any given week or someone who can fill in if one of the main players of the team is bad at a game that gets picked. The 3rd backup player isn't required but is suggested if you can find someone willing to take on that role. If you can't find a teammate, just let me know that you're interested but don't have a team and I'll add you to the list of users looking for a teammate.
Be careful on who you choose as a teammate. If your teammate doesn't show up for a matchup, then it's you against 2. If your teammate gets banned from the competition or drops out, then you have to play the entire tournament alone unless you can find someone to
NOTE: You don't need the PlayStation item to join PlayStation netplay sessions. Also, the games of this tournament will be available to everyone while the tournament is active.
The games that this tournament will include (some of these might change):
-Bomberman '94 (TG)
-Wit's (NES) *
-Super Spike V'Ball (NES)
-Final Match Tennis (TG)
-Motoroader (TGCD) ?
-Micro Machines 2 - Turbo Tournament

-Tiny Toon Adventures - Wacky Sports Challenge ?
-NBA Jam ?
-Bakukyuu Renpatsu!! Super B-Daman *
-Micro Machines V3
-Crash Team Racing ?
-Crash Bash ?
-Micro Maniacs ?
*Games added to tournament for first time this year
If you know of a good 2 vs 2 game, please recommend it and I'll see about getting it added!
Games with a ? next to them are games that aren't confirmed for this tournament yet.
The games will be grouped together and each week a team can veto a group which means for their matchup that week, no game from that system can be picked. This will allow users to compete who are unable to do netplay for a certain system because they'll be able to simply veto that system each week and never have to worry about playing a game for it.
-You should preferably live in the United States (unless you have had very little lag problems playing netplay with USA users)
-The RGR Plugin must work fine on your computer and netplay should work for at least 3 of the systems mentioned above
-You must be free at least 1 hour every week that this tournament takes place or have a backup player that can fill in for you any week that you're unavailable
-If your on the ban list, you cannot enter. To see who is on the ban list, go here:
1st = 300,000 Viz or $300 Worth of Steam Games (aka 30 Raffle Tickets)
2nd = 180,000 Viz or $180 Worth of Steam Games (aka 18 Raffle Tickets)
3rd = 90,000 Viz or $90 Worth of Steam Games (aka 9 Raffle Tickets)
Click here to see all the games you can choose from if you win.
(teams will share the prize)
Every user of the winning team will get a special trophy item added to their Vizzed Market inventory. Users will be able to display all the trophies they've earned on their profiles (when I'm done remaking them) and they'll also be permanently enshrined on a Hall of Fame page.
If you miss more than 50% of your matches, then you'll be added to the ban list. This rule does not apply to backup players and you wont be affected by this rule if you can get your backup player to fill in for you in a week that you'll miss.
Signup ends and Tournament begins on Monday, July 13th.
If you want to enter, reply to the below thread with your team name, who the leader of the team is and who is on your team. If you don't have a team or can't find one, respond to the below thread saying that you want to form a team with someone and I'll add you to the list of users looking for a teammate.

Summer 2020 - Admin Election - Vote Now!
It's time to elect the 2 users who will be admins of the site in 2020 from July - December. You can vote for 2 Admins. They're listed below, click them to see their application:
Here's how this works
Respond to this thread with up to 2 users you think would do a great job. The more users you choose, the less weight your votes have. So if you feel really strongly about someone, then vote for just 1 user.
Here's what determines the weight of your vote
The weight of a vote depends on the user and how many votes that user makes. Users who have a high rank, been around for a long time, and have a high post count, will have a vote with more weight. This is fair because those users should have a bigger impact on the results since they're more familiar with the community and have a higher reputation compared to someone who just registered with the single purpose of altering the results.
Here's the formula for figuring out the weight of your vote:
User Level * Power Level
And if you have multiple votes, it'd look like this:
(User Level * Power Level) / Vote Count
The User Levels can be viewed from their profile and also next to their posts to the left. A User Level is based on how long a user has been here and how many posts they have.
Here's the numbers that represent each Power Level:
0 = Newbie
1 = Normal
2 = Trusted
3 = Elite
4 = Site Staff
5 = Local Mod
6 = Global Mod
-Can't vote for yourself
-Can't vote for more than 2 people
-Posts with negative ratings will be investigated and potentially ignored
Voting ends on Thursday, July 2nd.
Be sure to submit your votes to this thread:

The final matchup of the Bomberman '94 Tournament ends on June 23rd with the final matchup taking place at 2:00 PM central time.

New Responsive Layout
I've been spending the past few weeks making the site more adaptive so that everyone has the same site experience and features no matter what device they're on. Instead of spending a bunch of time trying to explain how responsive the new layout is, I've made a video to demonstrate it
Things added or
-Site adapts to almost every screen size
-Users on mobile devices now have access to far more content now
-The size of the generated HTML of the pages is a little smaller, allowing for quicker page loads
-Site users less Javascr
-Site can be shrunk down to a width of 250 pixels
-Messages Center takes up less space
-Site reserves more space for showing who is on a page and the users with less posts take up less space
-Vizzed GO box takes up a lot less space now
-Rearranged some ads
-Enhanced the appearances of various elements on the site and with the way some things are displayed
-Some old post layouts have been fixed
-Added a ? icon to the header links which allows you to access links that would sometimes get cut off due to lack of space
-Information and Navigation Columns no longer exceed the vertical height of browsers that aren't very tall (they receive scroll bars instead of being cut off)
-Navigation Column also received scroll bar if there are too many links and the links exceed the height of the Navigation Column (especially good for staff, who have access to a lot of links)
-Fixed an issue with the HTML5 RetroArch emulator where the game fails to load on the first attempt
-Some posts couldn't be editted, this issue is fixed
-For posts that have been edited, the previous post box didn't display what the previous post's contents looked like, this is fixed
