Community Blogs Update: Redesign in progress


As you can see, we're doing quite a bit of work to our community blogs. We didn't plan to break the blogs but our new home page software just kind of ate everything in its path, so now we're going to make the whole site *and I mean every single feature and page* available on all of your devices, instead of trying to support the 3 old gimpy but sturdy versions we had before. 

I'm terribly sorry it's taken more than a week to get this all bug-free, but we're working daily to get there.

Some long-requested features like full-page animated magazine layouts and cloning the body of Andy Dixon are all well underway but before all that we're trying to get the basics right:

Known bugs we're working on right now:

Fapping currently only works at the bottom of the actual article

Cblog Manage all post screen is missing CSS

User header photos and backgrounds are not embedding (they'll be back)

Downvoting doesn't work. Downvoting?

The tagging cblogs (podcasts etc) isn't available (it will be back in a more open-ended way)

No way to sort cblogs right now or view them by tag

RSS Feeds are down


- It takes a lot to make a stew

About Niero Gonzalezone of us since 9:58 PM on 03.16.2006

I keep Destructoid weird. Also I'm a playable character in Retro City Rampage, look:

(along with the whole 2009 Dtoid Editorial team)

Sometimes I have a villainous mustache

My dog CoCo checks all my work for bugs:

I live in Japan sometimes.

Sometimes I do volunteer stuff between gigs:

My advice to people who want to work in videogames is to just start doing the work, even if you do it incredibly poorly at first, until it just happens.

You want to be a writer?

Write daily. Eventually, you become a writer. Don't overthink it, that's all there is to it.

Live your dream! You only have one ticket, you may as well go for it. When I founded this site in 2006 everybody told me there were already too many gaming websites and it would never happen for me. I ended up selling the site to Enthusiast Gaming and now I help run the biggest gaming convention in Toronto, and continue to work on this site, which reaches millions a month. Basically fuck whatever people think - work hard everyday and don't take no for an answer.

The most important lesson I learned as an adult is that everybody's faking it at their job - and faking it better than everyone else is who gets the job. Also, be nice.
