    We’ve heard your concerns about the lack of activity on Virtual Market, as promised - we’re still here and ready for the next chapter in our journey.

    What happened?
    I’ve been trying to lead a more healthy lifestyle this year, which has led to me spending less time in front of the screen and all my projects suffering as a result of this.

    Given that I don’t see this changing in the near future, I’ve been on the lookout for somebody appropriate to take over community management duties so that this doesn’t have any more impact on the site.

    Virtual Market has not and will not be sold, I’m just looking for the best option to keep this awesome community going.

    If you want to see what I’ve been up to, you’re more than welcome to follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat.​

    Who’s doing this then?
    Community management duties will now be handled by PhewoPhewo - welcome!

    PhewoPhewo introduced me to Virtual Market when it was owned by AveryAvery - so he’s been there from day 1 and we have some history working together so it seems the perfect fit.​

    Who is that?
    I don’t feel qualified to answer this question, so I’ll let PhewoPhewo take over:

    "My name is Tony and I’m joining the VM team as Community Manager, over the next few weeks I will be:
    • Hosting some great events for the whole community.
    • On the lookout for people to join our team and help to shape the future of VM.
    • Working on some new branding for VM as we slowly switch to XF2.
    • Going through suggestions and working with VerringerVerringer to implement them.
    I’m a UI/UX designer by trade and have been designing for around 3 years.

    I love doing work for the community so if you need anything made, feel free to start a conversation with me on the forums!

    If you have any questions or concerns about me or VM, feel free to contact me."​

    Going forward…
    We are now almost able to move to XenForo 2 and are very much planning to do so, Phewo will have an announcement soon about this so make sure you have notifications on for our Twitter :thumbs-up:

    There’s lots of great stuff being planned out at the moment so there’s lots to look forward to.

    In terms of activity, I have faith in Phewo’s ability to get VM running smoothly again and hope that you will stick with us to see our journey.

    See you guys around :wave:

    I hope this will actually bring back users, I like the site, but the lack of users is what makes me not use it as much

    Yeah, we'll be doing as much as we can do to keep the site active from now on.

    If everyone were to help creating discussion threads and a friend or two, we should be doing great again in no time! We'd also be super appreciative of your help :open-smile: :heart:

    Very new to Virtual-Market, but I hope it regains the activity it once had.
