VinXperience is an unofficial fansite that was established in 2000 under the name of Pitch Black World. Originally, this site was a Pitch Black-themed fansite, devoted to the movie, its director and leading man. Barely a half year later, in the summer of 2001, Pitch Black World shifted its focus from the movie Pitch Black and became a news-centered Vin Diesel fansite. As Vin’s popularity and career escalated, the site itself underwent several changes and improvements, becoming a more general fansite, with images, fanfics, fan art and a busy message board. After several changes in hosts, affiliates and urls, VX is now available under http://www.vinxperience.net.
These days, VinXperience registers an average of 3,000 hits a month and the old site had well over 2.6 million visits by the end of 2009. The attached message board, re-launched in December, 2009, has more than 2200 registered members and counting.
Since October 2011, the Diesel Driven Image Gallery – or Vin Diesel Gallery, with thousands of Vin images, movie stills and article scans, is part of VinXperience.
After completing her degree in 2006, previous site owner Kriszta has passed the site management on to Janine to focus on both her real life and career. Today, the site is managed by a team of administrators: Bitten, Northern Lights, Silsin and MAVDementia, while Janine meanwhile retired as well.
Over the years VX has received mentions in the mainstream press, such as in USA Today and various other online movie sites. Vin himself acknowledged the site in 2005 at the German premiere of The Pacifier in Munich, Germany.
