Hello and welcome to my thread on my new forums page, VoxGrid!
What is VoxGrid?
VoxGrid is a general discussion forums page. The name is made of 2 parts. Vox meaning voice in Latin and Grid representing a network. There are 5 sections *:
Gamer Lounge: Gamers and gaming enthusiasts can post here. I have included dedicated sections to some popular games and areas.
Technology Zone: There are dedicated categories within here for technology, from Coding to forum software and more,
Film Studio: This can range from Movies to TV but I’ve included a video-editing section too and some more
Arts Room: Ranging from GFX to Music to Art
Knowledge section: I’ve divided this up into interests/knowledge and a study section.
*In the future, I will make more categories and overtime, I will add more dedicated categories within each section depending on the feedback I recieve.
How do I join?
It’s very simple! Just go to VoxGrid’s URL and go to the top right or click the announcement’s hyperlink. From there, you are prompted to a registration process that should take 1 minute. And after activating your account, you are a registered member on VoxGrid!
How many members and posts are there on VoxGrid?
At the moment, there are 50 members with 17 threads and 32 posts. I think these are decent considering I only launched this website last week and with an active giveaway going on at the moment (which any registered member is eligible for), I expect activity to be a bit higher and maybe after posting this thread to also increase members and posts. I have and will continue to be posting regularly on the page in a hope to spark up some discussion too.
What forum software does VoxGrid use?
We use MyBB, a free open-source software. I love this software and considering I don’t have the money to spend on more advanced ones like Xenforo or VBulletin, it’s so great that there is software that I can use for free to build up my site. Who knows, maybe in the future if I do get funds/donations, I may move to another software. But for now, I am very happy with MyBB, the support they provide and the vast amount of resources available. Everything I used on my website was free (except webhosting). The only cost was my time which I am more than happy to use towards making a page that all my members can enjoy.
What features do VoxGrid have?
We have a vast amount of categories and forums for you to discuss in. You can pretty much talk about anything on there and there is room to expand in the future. I am going to make my YouTube Banner templates available to download on my site for FREE to all registered members (I will showcase the templates on my YouTube channel _B_ and the link to that is above). This is to give VoxGrid members a template to use for their YouTube channels to boost it a bit with some channel art which will really help the look of the channel! We also have an awards system. Users can gain these through various ways such as through being a staff member, winning a giveaway, reaching a milestone (like 100 posts or 50 reputation) or just randomly lol. I will be creating more awards as time goes by. I’ve even included a live cryptocurrency widget on the side. We also use a groups promotion system that is based on the amounts of posts that you have created. When you reach a certain amount of posts, you will get a new rank, each one with more perks.
As mentioned above, we currently have a giveaway going on for the most active member. The winner will receive £10, an award which will be displayed on your profile and postbit and a “special rank” which allows perks such as custom profile background (shown on postbit too), gif avatars, custom profile music, the ability to change your user title and to change the style of your username. We hope to include more features as time goes by when more members start to join!

This would be much appreciated and I would be so thankful for that. if you really like my website and want to show that, please consider leaving a donation on my site here (Paypal only). These will really help with the web hosting costs and the amount of development and time I have put in towards creating a website that I hope is of high quality. Please remember that any amount of donation is much appreciated and that you do not have to donate to access my website. Joining VoxGrid is completely FREE!
Please remember to leave some feedback and suggestions. I will take the time to read and respond to all feedback and suggestions that I get left as this helps me greatly in establishing a way forward and a plan on what to do next. If you can, you could also join my Discord server or add me on Discord (BDON33#0691) where I will be more active and open to response. VoxGrid is a work in progress still and yes it still needs a bit of tweaking and fixing in places. I will posts any major updates on my announcements page on VoxGrid, my Discord server, emails and will keep this thread active and edit it at times if anything changes or if there is any news for VoxGrid.
I hope to see some of you guys on VoxGrid and will keep my presence on Forum Promotion active too.
Thank you, take care and stay safe!
