I haven't been here in awhile, and after taking a look around, it looks about the same as it has been. It's gotten so boring here on GS (particularly OT, which is what this will mostly be about). I still think, and continue to say, that ever since the last redesign, everything (in my opinion) has been going downhill. Thread quality is slowly disintegrating, lots of the cool and interesting people left (save for a small few), and lots of memes get banned. Now, I can understand why they'd ban memes, because they pop up all the time and they are annoying, but at the same time, it's what made this place fun and why I went here. I'd crack up everytime someone posted the O RLY? owl or try to summon Captain Planet, or touch someone's shoulder while doing a barrel roll, and I even enjoyed the occassional account suicides to see who'd get creative with it, but now all we have are repetitive relationship/politic/religious/music threads.
About the only thing I ever come here for anymore are for gaming news, which is about all this site is good for anymore, but I've gotten to the point where I've stopped with reviews as well, what the **** are the multiples of .5 for? What influenced that decision? What was wrong with saying "this game gets an 8.3" or "this game gets a 7.8" or something like that? I enjoy it when they were more specific with the review system, because it let me know exactly what I was going to, or not going to get. Not like that matters much though, I don't play video games much anymore.
Basically though, I've pretty much stopped coming here, and what do I do instead? I'm probably chatting with my real friends, playing guitar for countless hours a day, or if I am on a forum, I've started going to Ultimate-Guitar.com. They have an OT board called The Pit, which I must say, I get quite a few more laughs on, and they are much looser about some of the rules. Plus, being more into music than video games, I learn a lot there on Ultimate-Guitar.com
Simply put, if you were wondering where I was and why I wasn't here like I was over a year ago, you now know. :)
