Attention! Attention! READ ALL ABOUT IT! Site Rebranding Underway!
We present to you the new face of the old Video Games Underground__________ G U N ___________
Gaming Underground Network [Click here to Like our new Facebook page]What you should know:A. We've earned the domain name, not by paying for it, but for being an exceptional community!
Forumotion provided it as a gift!
B. We've rebranded ourselves from the VGU title because of a sum of circumstances beyond our control.
The spirit and the purpose of this community will remain the same!
C. This is a positive change because we will flourish anew under a fresh banner,
with lessons learned and experience gained under the old one.
D. Instead of "VGUnians", you will henceforth be known as:
GUNners GUNslingers and/or simply GUNs
E. We have a ton of improvements to the site
all of which will enhance your modding and networking experience!
Those improvements are:1. Overhauled Chatbox
with the following features:
- auto login with a toggle feature (on or off)
- new message sounds, highly customizable, with toggle
- archives open in new tab
- visual notifications for new messages
(the tab's title will change repeatedly)
Thanks to Forumotion's devs for the features, and @Drusvak
's excellent scripting skills for merging and optimizing the settings,
as well as making them user-customizable and toggle-able 2. Automatic word counter
in every post.
This will not allow users to make a post
unless they've used a minimum number of words (4).3. Auto-Private Message
for members when their post gets edited.
This way, when a staff member fixes their post after breaking a rule, or warns them about something, they won't say "oh I didn't know" anymore, because they'll be notified of it in their inbox. Also, staff won't be able to sneak-edit anyone's posts without them knowing about it (not that it ever happened
)4. Category Toggle
- so that you can minimize an entire forum category from the main page5. GTA sections are Merged
into a GTA franchise category http://www.gunetwork.org/c11-grand-theft-auto6. Borderlands subforum
has been created underneath More Video Games category:http://www.gunetwork.org/f61-borderlands7. Fan Fiction subforum
has been created inside Fallout Discussionhttp://www.gunetwork.org/f5-fan-fic-role-play8. A disclaimer
for the trading subforum (Gamer's Market
) has been created and stickifiedhttp://www.gunetwork.org/t4460-gunetwork-trading-disclaimer9. Graphical Enhancements
: The background image will be changed to a rotation of 3 seamless patterns. Color theme will remain largely the same, but other graphical improvements will be added in a short while. Some of the banners will be edited to include the new name of the site. All of the old ones will be discarded, but new submissions are expected starting now!http://www.gunetwork.org/t4461-official-gunetwork-graphical-enhancement10. Message Draft Functionality
so that you can save your progress while typing a post or message.11. Scroll Up button
on every page, so you can quickly zoom back to the top of the page.12. Added more smilies
, including: 13. More to Come!
All these changes will take a while to be implemented, and there might be some errors connecting. But fear not, the site will not go down. After about 3 days of processing, all the old links and old topics will safely redirect to the new domain.
Thank you for being part of modding history!

Urgh! I've just realised. Being 'Gunners' makes us all Arsenal supporters.

Not going to lie when I first opened a tab for the site to see GUN and all the other changes I wasn't sure if something happened to my bookmarks.
Anyhow really great to see our community grow and I can't wait to see what happens next.
So till next, I'll see you fellow GUNners around the forum. Cheers.

Holy Site Rebranding Batman!
I'm really impressed and proud of where the community has come from. Not gonna lie, when I first came here after the original VGU shutdown the place was dead and I thought "Well, I guess that the end of that."
Very happy to say that I've been proven wrong and I'm proud to be a member of the community.
