2019 New Year Update

Join our Discord server to chat about VGM and seek assistance from our experts on album submissions, artist credits, and all sorts of obscure trivia. For those who prefer our regular IRC channel, we've set up a bot to bridge the two rooms so everyone can still talk to each other. Or not, it's your call.

We've also split out our database to a separate server with its own dedicated resources. Expect much improved stability from now on.

Happy new year, and huge thanks to all our community members and contributors!

Server migration heads-up

posted by Gigablah Oct 25, 2018 05:02 PM (3 comments)
Our hosting provider ServInt was acquired by Leaseweb earlier this year, and they're currently migrating customers to new infrastructure. Our server is undergoing this process, so there may be some downtime within the next few days. (Don't worry, the database and assets are replicated.)

We're back

One of the database tables (forum related) crashed and needed to be repaired. Apologies for the downtime.

Automatic HTTPS redirection

posted by Gigablah Jan 21, 2018 07:42 AM (6 comments)
After testing HTTPS support for a couple of months, we've gone ahead and made it the default. Visitors will now be automatically redirected to the HTTPS site.

Some users may have issues with HTTPS, especially those who are still on older browsers or operating systems. Therefore we've implemented a fallback, accessible through the Preferences panel (the gear icon on the top right). Under the new "HTTPS Redirection" section, click on "Disabled".

As usual, add your feedback and bug reports to this thread!

Making VGMdb more secure: HTTPS support

posted by Gigablah Oct 14, 2017 04:51 PM (15 comments)
VGMdb is now available for browsing through a private, encrypted connection at !

With over half of Internet traffic now secured through SSL/TLS, and browsers starting to hold non-secure sites accountable, implementing HTTPS protection is now a necessity.

During the initial phase you may run into bad redirects to the non-https site or mixed content warnings; please report them so we can get it fixed. Once it's verified that everything is working well, we can turn on HSTS and enforce secure browsing by default.
