Hello dark mode, my old friend.
For the last several months behind the scenes, we’ve been working on a brand new website. When I started with UploadVR back in December, my main goal was to update the site. Both for our readers, and for the team on the backend. Our website was a bit of a nightmare: a search bar bigger than the state of Texas, viewing it on mobile was quite the ordeal, and creating a post was like cracking a safe in a James Bond movie.
Things had to change.
Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been working closely with our web developers at Saritasa to create a solution that works for everyone. With each stage of the development cycle, I worked with everyone on our staff individually to get feedback. We can’t always make everyone happy, but we did our best.
One thing you’ll notice is that the new website is on dark mode by default. Dark mode is all the rage, and if I could have every single app in existence utilize it, I would. Now, not everyone likes it, so to accommodate those who prefer light mode, we’ve given you the ability to switch. Or if you want to go back and forth, you can do that, too.
Renovating the site was a big obstacle to get through. Now that it’s done, we can focus more on our new initiatives, such as communicating with the community through our Discord, streaming more frequently, and bringing you more original content, like our E3VR Showcase.
With any new product comes hours of beta testing. While we all put in as much time as we could during the craziness of E3, we probably missed a few things. If you find something that makes your experience anything less than enjoyable, please let us know by sending us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Keep in mind some of our older articles may reflect old formatting and not look perfect on the new site. If you could also include what platform (desktop/mobile/tablet) and browser you’re using, that would be a huge help.
Welcome to the new UploadVR. We hope you like it as much as we do.
