Hey VOers and welcome to VSS!
The staff here are sad to see such a historic website leave the community but we're here for you and accept new users with open arms!
VSS is part of the VSio series of sites created by the Dynamivox team. We aim to create as many useful services for the community as possible.
An Introduction in what VSS is:
VSS is a social site created to join all the micro-communities together under one roof.
When we first started the site was an experiment called "VocalSocial" which was very much a Facebook clone. Later on it was rebranded to VocalSynth.Space and we began to take as many suggestions as we could from test users. The site went through a handful of iterations based on those suggestions before arriving as it is now. From a Facebook clone, to a social hub, to a special kind of community forum.
How to browse VSS:
VSS is categorized into "tags" and subtags. Rather than having to search a maze of locations to post your content, tags make it easy to find your place!
For example, if you want to post a Vocaloid cover you can select the "Synthesis>Vocaloid" tag and add in the "Covers" subtag. Subtags can be added to any primary tag and can be browsed in conjunction with or on it's own.
If you have any questions be sure to add the "Questions" subtag! This transforms your thread into a QA where a best answer can be selected.
Even now, with how long this project has been going on, we are still looking at suggestions! Just recently we revamped the theme in order to make the site a lot easier to browse and added some new tags.
As a thanks to all the new users who are coming in, we are working to archive the VO website so all the old threads can still be looked at!
Feel free to drop suggestions here and our staff with get right on it!
