What is this garbage

This topic is locked from further discussion.

Some birdbrain thought it would be a good idea to merge the PC technical forum with PC game discussion, just so people can pollute a once decent forum with "WILL THIS $1500 RIG PLAY THE NEXT SH*TTY MODERN TACTICOOL SHOOTER ON MAX SETTINGS??" Oh and how fitting are the two stickies which serve no purpose other than to propagate the PC hardware circle-jerk, sure to impress all the ladies out there! Sure it existed on the old forum, but at least it was mostly confined in the PC hardware section. But apparently creating a mess of a forum consisting of technical support, to peripheral discussion, and actual *games* is an improvement. You're sure to get more traffic from a PC hardware section then the pathetic mobile discussion forum.

Apparently there is a computer hardware forum, but it isn't included on the main page?

So you want me to build you a gaming rig or what?! XD

it's just one of the many reasons that this forum has died a death. combining the pc hardware and gaming forums is just the tip of the iceberg of bad decisions from the site redesign

Frankly I don't think the higher ups at Gamespot care at all.

Many of us have been complaining about this since the change months ago.

It doesn't look like it's going to change :(.

I miss audio/video too.

The site change is not for the better thats for sure. I could make a list a mile long of features I miss from the old forums....

(Well maybe not a mile, but it would be atleast a page.) :P

So where did everyone go to? IGN forums? What's the alternate to classic GS forums?

High five, way to do your job dude! Care to start banning spammers to at least make this hell hole less hell and just a hole? (I mean just cause its a hole doesn't mean it has to be dirty).

considering the low populations, merging the two forums is the only thing keeping this forum alive.

Dunno if you pay attention to this part of the board, but I make sure it's clean. I can't be here 24/7 as I'm a volunteer and I do have things to do outside of this site.
What you can do when you see spam go unnoticed is to flag the post, or PM me with a link to it and i'll take care of it. I won't notice everything, but
if you or anyone else could do the same (if it goes unnoticed for awhile) that would be a great help. :) Though I seriously don't advise posts like the one I deleted though.

I suggest asking about this in the bugs and feed back part of the site :)
