This is horrible, where are our freaking unions? We were promised that they would carry over. You managed to do ALL other boards that you currently have and still can't carry over unions?

and on top of that, there are still some boards that aren't on the main list.

Two months in and I still do not see a point in enduring the 'new' Gamespot's many glaring flaws. Almost all of the functionality and community features that compelled me to stick with the site over the years are either marginalized, broken, or completely gone.

I remember a certain staff member stating unions would be here sometime during the first quarter of 2014. There has been no update to that timeframe since then which I am aware of.

a certain staff member on our end as well said that as far as they knew, they were ready to go. so why would we have to wait that long? very interesting if you ask me.

What do you mean by "on our end?"

^He refers to the mod made main topic for union discussion here.

over a month ago they were supposedly ready given a comment that "they should have gone live yesterday", but here we are after 2 months and still nothing.

I think the last I heard was it wouldn't be happening before the PS4 launch (happened) and that it was also unlikely to be before the XB1 launch (also happened).

Next milestone is this talk of Q1 2014? Way to move the goal post, boys.

I meant that in another thread where the rest of us were involved, a staff member mentioned that they were essentially ready. though since then, there hasn't been another word related to unions.

I understand now. Do you have an idea about which specific thread that was stated within?

This thread. I don't think the administrator actually said this publicly, he just passed down information.

As far as I know they're ready to go. Big changes have to wait until after the PS4 launch. Its a good possibility that the new Unions will go live next week, though the XBox launch could also delay new changes. We'll see...

they are back now.

#16 Posted by leon2365 (13038 posts) -

but, problems are still there. cant make new topics, or cant post either. now we wait for that to be fixed. hopefully soon.

#17 Posted by TAMKFan (32639 posts) -

Yes, you can. You do get an error for doing it, but the posts should still go through. I was just posting in a union.

#18 Posted by leon2365 (13038 posts) -

indeed they do. though having that error appearing every time will definitely confuse people.

Found TUGOWU. I'm used to errors.
