1  Non-Gaming / Forum and Site Feedback / Re: Why do Forums seem disconnected from main site? on: February 18, 2017, 11:07:43 PM
It's a huge effort, and there are a few huge efforts that have to happen before it can get done. For instance this forum software needs to GO, and that's a HUGE thing to push it over to something new. We know exactly what we want to do, but time, money, and life have all gotten in the way for some time.

It WILL get done eventually. Dammit.

And to correct the record, the focus of the site has ALWAYS been about providing news, reviews, etc. It has been FAR more than just a financial burden for some time (if anything, the forums have been more of a financial burden than the front page for the better part of the last decade). From the staff's point of view, we love the forum and the community here, but our focus is on the rest of the site. At this point we probably interact more with the communities on Facebook and Twitter. <shrug>

It is very likely that the changes we have in mind may not find favor with some of the original GG/CG folks from way back. I remember when we rebranded to Gaming Trend some forum-goers still had us pegged as a console only site and turned their nose up at the notion of us expanding our coverage (or at least turned their nose up at talking PC games in these forums).

The bottom line is, we will keep on doing what we're doing, and we still want more integration into the forums and eventually that will happen. In the meantime, we'd love it if you guys read our work and talked about it, but no matter how hard it is now or how easy we try to make it, that's still up to all of you smile

I read good things from fans, a certain amount of "meh" from mainstream critics. So maybe Marvel movies are becoming more like DC's?  icon_smile And various handwringing over "whitewashing" and giving Asian cast members thin supporting roles etc.

I'm strangely -- get it? STRANGELY? -- smirk  retard disinterested, just never read the comics.

I'm sure I'll get around to seeing it some time but you probably don't have to worry about me running out opening night or seeing it 3 times in 3 days.  Bring your own! Maybe those days are over for me. I loved Star Trek Beyond but never really felt any impetus to run back and see it again. Maybe ticket prices finally turned that part of my brain off.

Uh, 91% at Rotten Tomatoes is "meh"?

Saw it last night- it's now my favorite Marvel Movie to date. Not even CLOSE to being like a DC movie.

I backed both of their Kickstarter Ghostbusters board games, and they have been one of the best, communicative and rewarding companies I've had to deal with on Kickstarter. The Ghostbusters game is really well done and what I received was considerably beefed up from the eventual retail version. When they launched the GB 2 board game kickstarter, they sent bonus figs to the backers of the original game. I backed the Walking Dead game but had to pull out because I just don't have the funds today Tongue I pretty much would back anything they do- they are solid.

This forum doesn't need a redesign, it needs to be taken out to the shed and shot in the head. We are starting the process of migrating off of the server we're on and changing out the software- baby steps.

One thing I keep wondering about this new movie, what was the point of the blood line/blood bag thing? Not having a blood line didn't seem to affect the war-boy. If having a blood bag is important, why would you strap them to the front of your car?

War-boys basically need regular blood transfusions. When the initial war party went out, Nux needed a fresh transfusion while the other ones were still fairly fresh. Instead of being left behind he strapped his 'blood-bag' (Max) to the front of his car. Multi-tasking lives on in the post-apocalyptic future.

Wow, what a horrible movie. Way too Hollywood. Corny, painful script. At least the Road Warrior was fun action, this was drawn out silliness.

The bolded statement makes ZERO sense to me. This movie was so NOT Hollywood I can't even imagine why you thought it was.

Don't bother with the "My goal is" statement no one who is hiring cares what your goal is they care what you can do for them.

I strongly disagree with this, at least in my experience. They might not care about the goal itself but showing some level of ambition or desire for growth is crucial.

Same, but I lose my free HBO in another year. Isn't HBO $20/month on cable? If so, I wonder if they will lower cable prices so they can compete with set top boxes.

I'm paying $19.99 a month to Comcast for it.  I'll be switching as soon as I watch the first episode of Game of Thrones on the new service and verify it's not crap.

You can verify it right now- AppleTV has had HBO Go for a while

I apologize.  Perhaps it shows how partisan I already am but I didn't see anything particularly political about the clip. 

I don't think we're at the point where a mention of the president (much less a video featuring him) isn't inherently political. Hell, talking about his wife and kids is fair game in the political arena these days.

All I can say is this- we've got new forum software lined up for the beginning of the year. Tagging is one if it's features. If we try to install a plugin for this software, it is far more likely than not that those tags would not survive a forum migration.

I'm aware of it. Its on my list, but not sure when it'll get fixed. I've looked into it a couple of times a while back but no easy answer came out of it, leaving me to thing that some serious restructuring of the nav bar would be what it takes to fix it.

I've put it off until I can look at the front page and make it responsive instead of just applying a band-aid

I've been slowly remembering his great performances all day today. I definitely took him for granted these last few years, what with the more disappointing and, in my opinion, pandering mainstream stuff like Mrs. Doubtfire, Patch Adams, and especially the Night at the Museum dreck. The recent Louis guest appearance really hits you in the gut, considering the last dialogue between him and CK. Yes, this one hurts. It hurts deep. frown

Yeah, but likely only for this weekend, and the Turtles opening weekend doesn't look like it's going to break any records
