I wonder how the people giving negative about the design feel about GiantBomb.

Their website has shit navigation and layout also.

This is the perfect example on how NOT to do a forum besides the PSN forums.

Have there been any changes to post counts? Are posts that were made at unions/ user created boards still part of our total number of posts?

Kind of weird that the icons for moderators/staff are displayed all alone on the right hand side of a post.

That does take a little getting used to. I'm still trying to learn all the ins-and-outs of everything else as well.

@judog1: post counts are maybe a few months behind, that would explain why I'm missing about 6k. But more than half of my post count comes from unions, so I'd only have like 60k if they took the count away because of unions.

Well that explains it, I guess it's still better than having post counts reset...

I'll be back in a week then. The fact no one can really change their images makes this really freaking confusing to look at for the moment.

I see a positive review of Pokemon X and Y were given. That's pretty cool.

Site is slow and glitchy now, but that is expected.

For the most part, i love the changes.

Just hate the font, the way you quote now, and no sigs.

Also, is the no gif thing true?

Well so far this is seems like a big step back, especially when it comes to posting, beginner sites have better formats lol

@2ndWonder: Yeah, I should have over 37000 posts myself. Hopefully, they'll be able to fix that.

for those of you that may not know it, under your settings, and right above the ugly new picture, there is a setting that asks if you want to see sigs in forums or not. click the one that says "show signatures in forums" and then click the save button at the bottom of the page. problem solved.

How do some people have avatars? I can't press the change option without it resetting the page.

They were probably part of the Beta and switched it there. The rest of the uncool people will have to wait most likely :P

Yeah, it's been a while, I stopped in out of the blue the other night and saw all this hoopla over the new site, and figured I'd come check it out and see what it's all about.

You post total is the amount you had when the closed beta started, anything you posted after that did not count towards your total.

The new site is finally able to be surfed as www.gamespot.com. Good

There are definitely some bugs to be fixed.
