So, it's been another handful of months since I have been busy with human interaction, filling out an endless amount of job applications and just passing exams earlier on this month. And since I had the free time I really wanted to see GS and how the community has grown, and boy was I blown away by the new interface by god this site looks pretty good. Design wise it got a total upgrade! But, but the fact remains two major flaws appeared during my excitement of logging back in the first 3-5 minutes adding games to my new found playing list. One major problem is that most comments from blogs I created in the past are erased unfortunately in the people's activity section and I can't seem to find not even one blog post, OR maybe the lack of blogs have skyrocketed into an all time low for so it seems that way. If that is the case then I'll just be posting in forums and trying new things on the site such as reviews and just talking about video games I purchased this year. For now it's almost 11:30 in Florida, yes I wound up in Florida again but I will digress and leave it up to time and faith to figure out why I am here. But I will leave with this I am staying for a while no more constant disappearances. Small gaps in weeks sure or maybe a month because of studying but outside of that nothing just more post, so i bid you adieu my fellow gamespoters and keep on gaming!
I know that you didn't intend it so, but the phrase "skyrocketed into an all time low" entertains me - I am reminded of a certain MS Painted Adventure story. :P
Anyway, yeah, I have noticed that a lot of users that had been active in the past few years are posting a lot less, if they are posting at all. Plenty of infiltration by Facebook users too.
I wish that I could care more about this state of affairs though. In the last few years, even before the change, I had been treating GameSpot as more of a source of amusement than anything else.
I'm sad to say that in your absence GS has taken a massive downward turn. Half the community has left and seemingly all the forums and comments sections have devolved into System Wars. The blogging thing in particular has become an issue since there's no dedicated feed for blogs, meaning unless somebody sees your blog in their feed right away then they won't notice it and won't comment.
@Katzenbalger Wow that's a real punch in the gut for a large percentage of good blogs & bloggers gone out the window. Thanks for the infor Katz. Let's just hope GS fix this problem & also thank you for stopping by and commenting yourself! Cheers man!
