Boards suggestion

I'd like to propose a new game boards organization:

I have to agree with you. Boards:
  • Released and Upcoming Games
  • Game Talk

The first will aggregate two of the most important type of topics here in TA. An upcoming game news became a released one soon and then another topic in another board is created. That's strange and it seems to break the dynamic I was use to see here.

On the other hand, a Game Talk board for everything else would make topics more flexible and things like price discussion, this or that, missing port, game like that would have a perfect Lounge home.

Please vote!

please please split them !

i could not agree more with this !

i do not want to have to check 2 boards for game information, and one of them is permantly clogged with tons of crap ie imafia codes and best game for 99 cents / long trip / funeral etc

I am quite happy for people to discuss these things but wish i did not have to read it if i dont want too

can i please vote 5 more times

Most of the times codes are attached to a game release (new or updated) so you could easily keep track of them in a board with less topics.

In addition, a promo code board would force more than one topic about the same subject.

I agree with this but I think we should just move OUT NOW threads to a separate Game Talk subforum instead of creating a new one.

There's no reason why you need to duplicate it.

The Released and Upcoming games thread can turn into Game Talk though...

I like how it is now. I can see the Upcoming Games in one section, and then discuss the game once it is released in the other section.

I would rather see a User Review section. It probably wouldn't get much traffic or activity, but it's worth a shot

I like the split as it is now. You have games that are out and you can talk about them there and then there is the upcoming game section that you can learn about new stuff and talk about it there. Simple and easy.

edit: one thing that would be nice is if you stay logged in on the home page as well as the forums.

If at first you don't succeed... you have 2 more lives to get it right!
