Hello everyone, hope all is going well with everyone. :) Hopefully in time a lot of the forum features we liked are added back once the transition is more fully completed.

It could be a lot worse

Indeed, and has been in the past :P

True, but I can't exactly say I love what they did with the place lol But I'm hoping once it gets more complete some of the basic features that made navigation easier for the site are added back.

I was the leader of a union board here at GS before they trashed it all. Well, I created a new one. If you like shooters and are a warrior (all platforms and shooter gamers welcome), come to the new Warrior Clan board at http://warriorclan.shivtr.com We have game forums, an event calendar, videos, picture galleries, free game links (for Xbox live members) and game news. Come by and join in on the fun. I'd love to see you there.

The lack of the "replied" icon, and the first unread post buttons is literally giving me a headache. :( Also, it's impossible to find blogs now..

I'm only posting in OT atm. If I started posting anywhere else, I simply won't be able to keep track of anything. Especially with the useless post history.

Ha, stalker! :P That was just an emoticon I found somewhere that I liked. This may not be the greatest creation from paint, but it's different than the default one :P

Yes. I liked the lithium one besides the loading bar (though I think that was because they may not have paid enough to not have that bar)

Hi there!

I'm really not liking the new signature size, my Sam & Max one was slightly too big. I guess I'll just have to make a new one.

"would you like to leave this page?" comes up every time I click away from a thread without replying.

Funderful!

Indeed, time will tell, until then we has Roll Call, alcohol and video games. :) (Which Happens to be my plans for today :P)

WTH? They merged the PC games, PC hardware, and Audio/Video forums together? Who came up with this? 0__o

#179 Posted by RimacBugatti (1170 posts) -

My biggest complaint is the coloring or lack there of. Kind of depressing at the moment.

If I had to guess I'd say because those boards by themselves weren't overly active and probably boring as hell to look after, besides PC Games which was probably steady, so they probably combined them all to create a more active forum overall and make it easier to look after as well.

No idea. PC games and hardware I would have been fine if those two merged, but audio/video is different from those

No, you can't merge the hardware and games forums together! Those are entirely different things, and they were both very active boards.

Most of the discussion on the hardware forums are just questions or problems that users want to fix, and there's usually a big amount of those threads everyday. If you combine this with the games forums, those will be the only thing visible, and actual game discussions will get lost. It's such a ridiculous move...

I say give it sometime then, they might be made into separate boards. There is still a lot of things that have to be done, so those could change.

Evidently someone without your understanding of the boards was given the ability to do the impossible then, probably best to just stay patient, see how things go, maybe they aren't done adding boards or after a while they will see it's not a good fit and add a new one. It's always something to keep suggesting in the Feedback forum.

Hmm I was wondering why I was the only one who had set theirs up.

I know, right. lol This is the only thread with even the slightest activity.

I like the changes if only for the fact that in the future I will get to act all elitist towards people who weren't around before the change.

@Pirate700: well at least the site is loading much quicker today compared to yesterday.
