I wonder how the people giving negative about the design feel about GiantBomb.

#6 Edited by SUD123456 (4324 posts) -

Laugh or cry. Not sure which is the better choice.

It's gonna take me awhile to get used to the new forums. So far I hate it...

Their website has shit navigation and layout also.

This is the perfect example on how NOT to do a forum besides the PSN forums.

Have there been any changes to post counts? Are posts that were made at unions/ user created boards still part of our total number of posts?

#14 Edited by leon2365 (13045 posts) -

many things that still don't work.

'Sup?

Kind of weird that the icons for moderators/staff are displayed all alone on the right hand side of a post.

#17 Posted by Soniczero1993 (35067 posts) -

Well this is....not that great.

#18 Edited by Sweetbackhair (1926 posts) -


This will take some time to get used to.

That does take a little getting used to. I'm still trying to learn all the ins-and-outs of everything else as well.

@judog1: post counts are maybe a few months behind, that would explain why I'm missing about 6k. But more than half of my post count comes from unions, so I'd only have like 60k if they took the count away because of unions.

#21 Edited by leon2365 (13045 posts) -

cant even change any pictures.

Well that explains it, I guess it's still better than having post counts reset...

#23 Posted by Cloud_765 (111386 posts) -

What in the... Okay then... So this is the new design...

#24 Posted by KiIIyou (27076 posts) -

Who is everybody?! :O

#25 Edited by jimkabrhel (15416 posts) -

Well, I guess it's time to start posting here until the glitches get worked out and I can edit my stacks and add pictures.

#26 Edited by leon2365 (13045 posts) -

it needs another week to be somewhat operational.

#27 Posted by Cloud_765 (111386 posts) -

I'll be back in a week then. The fact no one can really change their images makes this really freaking confusing to look at for the moment.

I see a positive review of Pokemon X and Y were given. That's pretty cool.

Argh! God Damn it...............Well, Judas, t'was fun while it lasted......................

In other news, this place is slow as hell.......................

#29 Posted by leon2365 (13045 posts) -

the amount of users that left will be staggering.

#30 Posted by N-REAL (2436 posts) -

Took me 3 attempts to login.....I´m an old guy and like gamespot old fashioned style.

#32 Edited by navyguy21 (12682 posts) -

Site is slow and glitchy now, but that is expected.

For the most part, i love the changes.

Just hate the font, the way you quote now, and no sigs.

Also, is the no gif thing true?

#33 Posted by double_decker (145750 posts) -

Well so far this is seems like a big step back, especially when it comes to posting, beginner sites have better formats lol

#34 Edited by TAMKFan (32680 posts) -

@2ndWonder: Yeah, I should have over 37000 posts myself. Hopefully, they'll be able to fix that.

#35 Posted by Nintendo_Man (19626 posts) -

I am still alive, they will never get me off Gamespot. :P

#36 Edited by leon2365 (13045 posts) -

for those of you that may not know it, under your settings, and right above the ugly new picture, there is a setting that asks if you want to see sigs in forums or not. click the one that says "show signatures in forums" and then click the save button at the bottom of the page. problem solved.

#37 Posted by Chrome- (1660 posts) -

I don't know who anyone is anymore...

#38 Posted by double_decker (145750 posts) -

o.O Was there a chance the change was life threatening for you then?

#39 Posted by certifieddata (46046 posts) -

How do some people have avatars? I can't press the change option without it resetting the page.

#40 Edited by harry_james_pot (10064 posts) -

Hello, new RC! :D

#41 Edited by leon2365 (13045 posts) -

most likely, they were in the beta and got more attention than everyone else.

They were probably part of the Beta and switched it there. The rest of the uncool people will have to wait most likely :P

Hello, new RC! :D

Hello there pot_Harry :)

#43 Edited by harry_james_pot (10064 posts) -

Two questions.. Why am I missing about 400 posts, and where is everyones avatars and sigs?

Hello there! I haven't seen you here since forever! :D

Yeah, it's been a while, I stopped in out of the blue the other night and saw all this hoopla over the new site, and figured I'd come check it out and see what it's all about.

#48 Edited by Nintendo_Man (19626 posts) -

You post total is the amount you had when the closed beta started, anything you posted after that did not count towards your total.

#49 Posted by ninjastar (9484 posts) -

This place makes me sad. :(

#50 Edited by BranKetra (47361 posts) -

The new site is finally able to be surfed as www.gamespot.com. Good

There are definitely some bugs to be fixed.
