You all are making me feel old! :) I still lurk from time to time and do really miss the old days. Wish I had more time to still contribute.

News / Re: UPDATE - HTTPS / SSL Now Active
« on: December 01, 2016, 09:09:16 am »
Obviously security is a good for any website, but is there any particular reason you chose to use SSL certificates? It doesn't seem terribly common outside of sites that deal with confidential data or financial transactions.

Even tho VGC doesn't hold any financial information, it still transmits user account data, passwords, etc. It's quickly becoming the standard to use SSL on any site that has user accounts. In fact, in the very near future Chrome will warn users that a site is insecure if they are on a login screen that isn't https.

Woot woot! Welcome to the family!

Oh and if no one told you, the new guy has to bring donuts for the staff lounge every Monday.

FYI - I just fixed an offending query that was taking upwards of 20 seconds to load item pages. The site should be noticeably faster now.

Thanks for everything! VGcollect was the collection tracker I was looking for but didn't exist just a few years back. I am so grateful you created and made it what it is.

My pleasure! That's exactly why I started it. I couldn't find a tracker I was happy with, so I made one. :)

News / UPDATE - The long over-due update
« on: November 05, 2015, 08:38:01 pm »
Hello all,

It's been a looooong time without any sort of updates from me - and well that isn't a good thing. VGCollect has been my baby for years but over the past 12 months it's been ever more apparent that I no longer have the time to properly support the site the way it deserves. As most of you know I work a full time development job and recently (well it's been nearly 2 years now) started another side business that is growing month over month. That leaves me with little free time. I used to hit the forums daily, work on the site weekly and have a constant stream of updates. Nowadays I've almost avoided the site because I felt guilty for basically abandoning it. If it wasn't for our amazing group of staff members and our AMAZING community, the site would have surely faded away. You guys have made this site what it is today - something we all take great pride in.

That all being said, a few things are going to change here. Some of you may have noticed a new name in the forums lately. That name being Jason. Jason is a former coworker who was by my side a few years back during the early years of VGC. He is a very passionate collector and almost more importantly, a very passionate web developer. He will be taking over my role around here. He has had his hands on the VGC codebase and is already planning the first round of updates. More importantly, he is making progress on the mobile front.

I'm not going away, nor are any of our staff members. Most new users probably won't even notice since I've been inactive for months but I can assure you that this is for the best. I've been holding VGC down and it's time to humbly back off. I'm actually kinda excited to step back off and become a "normal" user again. Maybe I'll finally get my collection fully updated. :)

tl;dr Matt is stepping aside and Jason is taking and it's for the best.


MegaDoomer - I just activated your original account. Sorry for the trouble!

The chart uses a Google API that sometimes acts up. Sorry for the scare!

I just updated your account back to public to see if that helps. I'm not aware of any bug in the system that would lock you out.

Could you go here:

and then attempt to log back in. If that doesn't work please send me an email at

woot! Congrats on the house. Bought one a few years back and know how excited, nervous, emotional, awesome, shitty it can be.

I'm going to look into this and clean up the add / edit form. The system should reject any images if they are too big to handle.

I'm using advanced search and I'm searching for Amiibo and setting the category to interactive figures [NA]. When I get the list back, it shows there are 3 pages, but it won't actually change to the two pages when I click them. Anyone else getting this issue?

This link should take you to what I was seeing.

Interesting! I'll look into this issue tonight.

Hope this is fixed soon, kinda annoying not being able to see if it's in my collection or not when I search for a game.  :-\

Wait. What issue are you having? The only issue I'm aware of is some visual stuff with the mobile view now. Let me know and I'll look into it asap.
