OMG...everyone read this!!! Unions are going to die!

#101 Posted by super600 (29951 posts) -
I can vouch for this union or another mod that visit's this union can. Maybe get one of the officiers to do it.
#102 Posted by TAMKFan (32702 posts) -
Since Julian rarely stops by anymore, that seems like what will have to be done.
#103 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
zetaboards and shivtr seem to be popular alternatives so far.

Anyone know when the changes will be implemented?xdude85

late september early october

[QUOTE="The_Last_Ride"]What the hell do we do?00-Riddick-00
If I remember correctly you can contact gamespot to ask for them to change the leader if the leader is no longer active/banned.

I think there's a process that needs to be done in order to have a change of leader. But, considering the situation, I don't know if the process will be taken into consideration and just have the change of leader asap. 

Officers that still come around are horgen, 2nd and myself. I saw Racer posting the other days, but I believe he must still be lurking. Lance hasn't come in a while, and jedi was banned now (T.T).

I wonder though, what the Toonami Union did in order to move their union to a private board? It would be interesting if we can get to contact one of the members of their administration and see what they did (If they paid for having the ".com" in their link, process, etc.)

#106 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
union leaders will just be contacted eventually and asked if they want to have their union moved to a public board. since our leader is MIA, it is recommended that one of the officers contact an admin before the update. that is if you want this place turned into a public board.
#107 Posted by TAMKFan (32702 posts) -
I would rather it be turned into a public board than to have it disappear completely. Neither of those is a good idea, but the later is the worse of the two.
#108 Posted by The_Last_Ride (68910 posts) -
So there is this dude saying they have changed their minds about unions somehow because all of the people leaving. I don't know though. I hope they might convert it to a privat board

Who and where have you heard this from?

Who and where have you heard this from?TAMKFan

A guy that's in the actual beta on the new design 

#111 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
well if unions stick around, then i'll stick around as well. even if they don't really get updated.

Whoever is in that beta shouldn't be leaking stuff until they are revealed

If GS had the way to have some people donate money for GS, do you think it could help keep unions alive? Noteldnep has been talking to me about it recently.
#114 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
nope. someone already tried that. they didn't accept the donation.
#115 Posted by lancelot200 (61977 posts) -
I have completely detached myself from forums. GS killing everything that I cared about did not affect me too much. I'll miss the being able to pop up, though.

he didn't leak anything. He's just been talking to the staff 

#117 Posted by TAMKFan (32702 posts) -
Well, let's see what they say in the next Fireside chat.
#118 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
well since there is a mod monitoring this thread, if you'll let me then, I can show you what the new front page looks like so far.

Horgen can do it since he's got credentials. 
#122 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
im not in the beta. it was posted by a supposed giant bomb designer.

Kind of like UCB's? 

#125 Posted by TAMKFan (32702 posts) -
It would be nice if they at the very least convert unions into something like that.

i don't know, but they might turn it into that in the future. We at least know they have heard us 

#127 Posted by mitu123 (153911 posts) -
Well they said UCBs or something like it won't make a return so I don't know about that since they want all the forums mainly in one place.

#129 Posted by mitu123 (153911 posts) -
They don't even want us to create new unions so UCBs seem out of the question at this point.:P

yeah at the moment, but hopefully they will listen 

#131 Posted by Noteldnep (20165 posts) -
In the meantime, I will continue rebuilding my union at its new forum. :P
#132 Posted by The_Last_Ride (68910 posts) -

you could join mine and another union offsite. We are already a few there, you could join us

Watch the first fireside chat video, there was a quick look at the new home page there. It was very blurry, though. :P
#136 Posted by mitu123 (153911 posts) -
The other changes suck too and seem more of a downgrade than anything...

Good idea, as some from here might already be there. I bookmarked your site already.

#138 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

Well, they said we can't post anything whatsoever from the beta, I don't think it's up to the mods.
#140 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
ok. I wont post it then.
#141 Posted by TAMKFan (32702 posts) -
Well, nothing was said about unions in this week's Fireside chat video.

Lol. I figured I might as well clean my mini-profile since I likely won't post as much when the redesign hits. :P

So, it looks like we have about a month left for unions now.
#146 Posted by Noteldnep (20165 posts) -
One month left for the better GameSpot, as well as the best part about the site. These truly are sad times we're heading into.
#147 Posted by The_Last_Ride (68910 posts) -

it feels like we are going in to the great depression or heading to a funeral

It can't be a depression if unions aren't going to come back.
