The Evolution of VinXperience
« on: Wed, Sep 29, 2010, 01:08 PM »
Greetings Dear VXers!

We’ve got some exciting news. As most of you already know, VX is a unique place on the internet. We’ve got the best members and an outstanding staff. We always have the latest news and the best pictures, and we do it all without gossip, drama or flames. And we’ve been doing it for a long time -- did you know that some members of the staff have been involved in the Vin fandom for more than10 years? The fact is, we’ve had a lot of experience running web sites and message boards. With that in mind, we’ve decided to expand our horizons -- we’re going to open a brand new web site!


This new web site will be called MovieXperience and will focus on three major subjects: Sam Worthington, Zachary Quinto and Jensen Ackles. We’ll also offer coverage of a number of other celebrities and prominent people in the entertainment industry, such as Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker, El Rico, Zoe Saldana, Tricia Helfer and more. The URL for the new site is www.MovieXperience.net. We’re still getting the place in shape, but we hope all of you will stop by for a visit!

As a dedicated Vin Diesel fan, you’re probably wondering what this means for VX? Honestly, not much. You won’t see any change at the VX web site, Facebook page or MySpace pages. You’ll still receive all the latest Vin news and pics on the site, through the news feed, and of course, here at the message board. We are still dedicated to maintaining the top Vin Diesel fansite on the web, and that is not going to change.

The difference that you will see is expanded content here at the message board. We’ll open new sections corresponding to the new web site, including new celebrities and entertainment news. That means VX will benefit from new members, new topics, more pictures, more fanfic -- and fresh inspiration for us all.

We hope you’ll join the fun in these new sections, and help us welcome any new members that find their way here. If you’d rather focus your time on Vin alone, you have the option of closing any new sections that you’re not interested in; simply click the “minus” sign at the right side of the section header.

 


We also hope you’ll enjoy our new MovieXperience board skin, but of course you also may continue to use a VinXperience skin with Vin’s picture at the top. Feel free to experiment with the different skins, because there are several nice ones to choose from. You can check out the different skins in your profile; if you need help with this, check out this thread in the Administration section.

   

Some of you might be wondering about how we will finance this new venture. We want to assure you that the money earmarked for VX will only be spent on VX expenses. The Admins will pay for the new web site’s start-up costs. We don’t anticipate any new expenses with the expanded message board, but if there are any surprise costs, we’ll pay for it ourselves. As soon as we’re up and running, we’ll probably have a fund drive to help with future expenses, but any money that has already been donated to VX will be spent solely in the support of VX.

The new site will feature an RSS Feed, so be sure to sign up to get the latest MovieXperience news delivered to your mail inbox or your feed reader, and look for us on Facebook. And, as always, please let us know if you have any suggestions for the new place. We’re still finding our way through the new content, so now is the time to speak up -- do you have a favorite actor or movie or director? If so, let us know so we can include them in our expanded coverage. You may contact any of us, any time, with questions or concerns.

Thanks for being part of VinXperience. We hope you will come along with us for an all new Xperience at MovieXperience.net!

I like it, nice growth!

If I click in and get "redirected", is there a convenient way to get back?


I went all the way back, got lost, closed out & went back in again. 
there has to be a simpler way, right?

Click right onto the link and chose 'open in new tab' or 'open in new window'. Unfortunately I didn't manage to change the redirect link to open in a new window by itself...

There's actually a link on those sites that leads you back to the forum, but it's hidden quite well.  Always takes me like forever to find it when I happen to be on either VinXperience or MovieXperience... :devil1

At VX you'll find the link on top in the navigation menue under 'links' as well as at the right side - the red button under 'VinXperience sites' called' VinXperience board'.
At MX it's the second link in the navigation menue called 'The Xperience Message Board'.
All of those are displayed at each page you'll open ;)

Told you it was difficult to find... :wicked  Why hide it under "links", where it is not even the first link, but the last one?  Why not put it directly on top?  Next to the other buttons? :think

Because up till earlier tonight we didn't have the technical possibility to add a redirect link to the menue on top of the site. Even now I'm not sure if it will work with a top level page. therefore we added the link button.

eta: it works

thank you, everybody!

The right-click, open-in-new-tab works for me!

(I tried leaving a trail of breadcrumbs to find my way back, but someone ate 'em.)

Say Good Bye to our sister website MovieXperience!
Due to time restraints, the VinXperience Team decided to retire the MovieXperience website
and to continue this feature of VinXperience at Facebook only.
Stay connected and enjoy all the things besides Vin Diesel at
