Unions are finally back.

#1 Edited by TAMKFan (32704 posts) -

It's about time, isn't it? I'm glad to see SCU again. Now hopefully, we can get some activity here again. How has everyone been since the unions have been on a two month hiatus? Will you stick around now that the unions are at least back?

Nope, there's no motivation to even bring me here anymore, the changes don't help and now being off this site for a while was the best thing to happen for me, it's for the best to stop being here soon and live a life without this site starting in 2014. You know something is wrong with this site when not even "unions"(I don't call them unions, just "unions") can save it, ROFL.

not even unions either they are "union boards" now. though "saving" gamespot with them will not happen instantly. it will take a lot of time.

Awesome :) Still, many users have left already and the remaining ones aren't really happy with Gamespot either :(

Good stuff! Though to be honest I think it's too far gone for it to get the same level of activity it once had. I don't know if mega and Toph still come on the site for instance, but I don't think they do.

I have an idea for increasing activity. help support this thread.

It's about time! :D I missed you guys!

Although my activity decreased a bit in the past 2 months, I was still around. Nothing can make me leave this site. :P

By the time it's "saved" I would had forgotten about this site anyways, lol.

#14 Posted by leon2365 (13050 posts) -

This goes to show that GS Staff will eventually get to all the problems.

#21 Posted by TAMKFan (32704 posts) -

Wow, now I can finally enter this thread. I kept getting errors when I tried it before. But yeah, unions were gone for too long, which may hurt the activity here, but at least they are just back now.

Kind of a shame after so many years were put into this place what happened. Still, the fact that it was one of the few boards to remain is nice. Unions were an amazing website feature that truly made gamespot unique, but forums are not what generates income for CBS or gamespot.

@julian_jr: my union was pretty much dead after the change. I kept that thing alive for 8 years

Was this the first time you heard about the new site?

I'd wish they'd bring the actual unions back.

#32 Posted by TAMKFan (32704 posts) -

Same here. Maybe they will sometime. I don't see it happening anytime soon though.

i seriously doubt that is going to happen

#34 Posted by TAMKFan (32704 posts) -

The unions as they are now needs more promotion or something. I don't think everyone still knows they're back.
