GameBanana in 2021

A Blog Post for GameBanana

Over the holidays I took some time to reflect on GameBanana and how it has really stood the test of time and continues to chug along and adapt to changes in the gaming world with the amazing support and dedication of our contributors, moderators, game managers and admins. While our fortunes are mostly at the whim of what the modding scene decides to do and where to do it, we have been fortunate to maintain our veteran modders and attract new modders as new games are added here.

As many of you may have noticed, I didn't put as much time into GameBanana in 2020, deciding to focus on Checkpoint to see if I could get it off the ground. I'm happy to say that Checkpoint has reached a level of usefulness and is growing, and inexplicably, so is GameBanana, despite a degree of neglect on my part - I owe this entirely to our dedicated members and moderators who have continued to breath life into our site.

To renew my commitment to GameBanana, which I have run (under various names) for just shy of two decades now, I want you all to know that I have started laying the ground work for a massive modernization of our platform, and a new development approach where I won't be a roadblock as the only developer involved. Stay tuned for more details :)

    In case GB will receive massive UI changes, i hope there will be some kind support for themes and/or a "legacy" interface, though i'm no savvy programmer so i've no idea if that kind of implementation would work...

    Oh and as always - thanks for keeping the site alive, it means a lot to me.

    Well, You know what Gamebanana has been doing well for me, I wanna thank you for helping with gamebanana for these 20 years, you've done alot and I really appreciate and respect that, I've only joined a couple months ago and I'm trying to be better, I used to be more shy and nervous after some bad times on another public site, I stayed away from people but after I joined a stream I actually felt more better, I feel much more better here on gamebanana and almost anywhere now, so I hope you have a good 2021 man.
