@navyguy21: Blamme the twats that funded and redesigned GS. All the legit posters just decided to either move on to Gaf, Skype or just moved the fvck on.
It was such a rash ass decision.
You realise that the new site design had to make sacrifices right? while in many ways its worse, it now fits across all devices.
Though the designers seem to have failed to take into account the little features that made things easier.... but the old site was information overload, very dated looking and was not responsive web design in the slightest.
I cant speak for Tonitorsi, but i dont have an issue with the site as a whole. I mean there are minor complaints, but it is similar to other sites and is better with media. It will evolve over time im sure (like being able to see which threads ive viewed and how many new posts, etc)
I think the biggest change that affected long-time posters was the rule changes that favored trolls and alt accounts. It drowns out legit discussions and threads. Im on this site about a third as much as i used to because there is very little actual discussions going on and more crap flinging and blind fanboyism.
How do you compete with that. I rarely create threads because i know they will be ruined by trolls.
Site overhaul is the least of the problems here
