Yogscast.com, previously The Yogiverse, is the Yogscast main website hosted on http://www.yogscast.com. It contains access to most Yogscast videos that were uploaded onto YouTube, and occasionally housed early episodes of various series. It also provides links to the Yogscast Store, social media and a general history on the Yogscast and its origins.
The website was originally created on August 30, 2010. It was created by Pat "Peva" Woodward. He created the website by himself because he was "upset that the Yogscast didn't have a community site". The site wasn't made the official Yogscast Community site until around February 2, where Peva soon after became the Yogscast Community Manager. The Website had then expanded to include Forums, Merchandise Shop, Livestream capabilities, and an ill fated YogChan, all of which was created by Peva with the help of other admins (namely Dyneslott, Tinman and MintyMinute) as well as members of the community.
In November 2012, the website was starting to crumble, displaying errors caused by PHP and an expired security certificate. The launch of the new Beta website fixed these issues.
Currently, the Yogscast use the Maker Studios format for websites. It is connected to Maker.TV and allows better video discovery capabilities, including search and playlists.
The Yogiverse forums were initially moved in February 20, 2011 from the main website to a separate website dedicated completely towards the forum. These new forums had new features and a generally better appearance and improved performance.
A third iteration of the Forums appeared later, where the majority of pages used Drupal - Opensource CMS instead of vBulletin.
On February 5, 2015, it was announced that the forums would be closing down due to technical reasons. It was also said that they would look for an alternative, and that an alternative was the Yogscast subreddit. However, two unofficial Forums have been set up since the closure for the benefit of the community. The current popularised forums are:
