Don;t worry about the new TOU guys. I don't think you guys are in any danger of getting banned from that.Just follow the current TOU.I think only the really terrible users and maybe mitu(:P) will have to worry about this new tou.

I have reported people that have clearly trolled my, yet i have been told to report only what i think is offensive... So obviously they think i just report guys for fun...

this will be a SHORT public beta if they are launching the new site in October. unless they really meant to say "we will launch the public beta in mid to early October."
#254 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69555 posts) -
Nah, i think the beta will be over by then

[QUOTE="harry_james_pot"]Well, don't lose hope yet guys. Obviously I can't say anything about what's happening in the beta, but things are constantly changing. It won't look like that at the end. We're all making sure to give them feedback on all the things that needs changing. :)PiscesChick93

Okie dokie, thanks for your feedback Harry :)

If for some reason it ended up looking even worse than GB, just know I did what I can. :P

The facebook stuff seems stupid to me 

What facebook stuff?
#256 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69555 posts) -
Instead of having Fuse, having some sort of Facebook app to your profile

Nobody has said anything about any Facebook apps. It's just that instead of having 2 separate profiles (which is ridiculous, and why I never use Fuse), some Fuse features will be integrated with your profile, like the feed.
#259 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
3 to 4 weeks to go.

I'll know it's not your fault that's for sure as I know you hate the GB forum look too :P

It looks more like a comment section than a forum, if you ask me.

Yeah I said the same thing a while back when I saw the GB forums. 

#264 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
they should at least keep the forums looking the way they look now.
#265 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69555 posts) -

i am sure they won't 

#266 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
indeed.
#267 Posted by TAMKFan (32717 posts) -
If you ask me, they should go back to this design for unions on all boards.
#268 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
they should just keep the unions and leave them alone. but then again, "we cant have nice things."
#269 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69555 posts) -

Hell i would love them to just go back to the original design of 05 to be honest 

#270 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
October is nearly here. day 3 of HHN was awesome. next up is 10/6 for day 4 of 10.

I remember that design, as I was already a user on GS at that time. Honestly, I would rather they not go back to that.
#272 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
nothing we can do unfortunately.
#273 Posted by TAMKFan (32717 posts) -
The final design just needs to be different enough from Giant Bomb.
#274 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
all we can do now is wait.

Just 2 weeks or so left now. It's a shame how unions have died down more ever since the announcement.
#277 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
that's most likely due to people moving to other sites.
#278 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69555 posts) -
that and people being seriously PO by the announcment
#279 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
which leads to people leaving for other sites, and just not posting as much either.
#280 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69555 posts) -

yeah i bet people over at IGN/Detructoid/GiantBomb have gotten new users 

#281 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
most likely.
#282 Posted by The_Last_Ride (69555 posts) -
From my point of view it looks like Gamespot managment only want click bait to get most money everywhere on the site, instead of listening to the users
#283 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
its all about money in the end. not customers.

I just got a PM from GS about my unions and instructions to get them transferred. Even though they're dead, I plan to get them transferred.
#287 Posted by Noteldnep (20165 posts) -
I already did what GS told us to do in that PM and sentn out the last telegram for my main union, so I'm really not worried about coming on here anymore. Farewell and it was a blast chatting with you all.
#288 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

later dude. have a good life, and survive.

as for the PM, I got one as well.

You're really leaving? :o Goodbye.. :(
#291 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

easy come, easy go.

#292 Posted by Noteldnep (20165 posts) -
Well I was reading the posts about how most people are POd and that is why activity has been down. That is the truth for sure. And I was kind of in a bad mood earlier, I might still make some more posts before the redesign hits. I do want to keep in contact with you guys.
#293 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -
well in that case, maybe its time to start another SCU elsewhere, such as zeta boards.

Got accepted in the beta today:

i09SxW7LF23as.png

ibtBIAeyVfksfW.png

You have to click on community to access forums

Most forum pages on this Gamespot aren't in the new one like Off Topic After Hours and such

They removed a lot of the user settings from this Gamespot

There's a Karma system and I hope it doesn't get abused:

"Try to make a thread in the new forum and see what happens. Something about a forum karma system where people can vote to ban people (and then a mod confirms or something).

  • Flagged content gains +1 karma point for the submitter and the accused. If the moderator accepts the accusor's position, their karma is reset.
  • Once a user hits +10 karma they are banned from posting.
  • Karma automatically degrades -1 karma each night."

No quick quote or quick reply

Quotes are on the side of the post for some reason, it's like looking at 2 different posts in one 1 post

It takes some getting used to the forum layout due to the design, doesn't flow as well as this Gamespot

Looks too much like GB, lol

Those are my light impressions, and no, I certainly won't be really active here anymore if anyone wonders.
