Don't forget you need to edit the 'jump to' box at the bottom of the forum!

I know Where is/How to is supposed to cover this, but currently the only real discussion of games that happens there is the medal thread, which right now is just over 12,000 posts.

This has been on my mind for a long time too... The fact that we have popular forums that aren't talking about anything on the site... I don't want to get too trigger happy but I'll be keeping it in mind as we move forward!

I'm sad to see him go. :c

Dan is still around he's just buried under Game 3 and trying to claw his way out.

NeuroSky's headphone sensor has so much potential for greatness. However, it has so much potential for it to not only fall flat on its face, but through the floor as well. Of course, that's my contribution on that part. Otherwise, I like the dump and the forum upgrades are needed.


I'm not impressed with the way things are going here.

My only gripe is that the Where is/How to? forum is right at the bottom of the BBS page, it should be nearish the top so new users can see it straight away.

So I'll have wait longer?

The BIG NEWS today is that liljim has revamped a bunch of stuff on the forum back-end, allowing us to finally re-organize the forum listing and add some new forums!

I'm not a flash artist so I have no use for it yet

The Writing Forum is a lead-in to the inevitable Writing Portal and finally provides a gathering spot for all the writers on NG!

Writing Portal!!

NG will be going through some major evolutions this year and this helps lay the groundwork!

Horray!!

And remember that multi-stage launch that started with Dumping Grounds? Well it's still coming... And it doesn't involve CHAT so SORRY.

WHAT!?!!??!?!?!?!?!?

BTW, be sure to pick up this Physeter Poster by Wolfenheim!

Hang on, I'll buy it later

Can't wait for all the new stuff coming up it should really help with communicating. Also listened to the 4 brave champions song (it was epic), but the other castle crashers song by hextails was alright(lyrics were good).

P.S I'm guessing the winter flash off results are coming later, and NOOO EDITT BUUTTTOOONNN!!!!!! >:(

I know a few people have mentioned this, but I can't agree with it more. The Wi/Ht? forum is so important for helping new users out that if they don't see it straight away some are likely to not notice it's even there leading to more Wi/Ht? style questions ending up in the General forum.

This is pretty delicious. As aforementioned, the drop-down nagivation bar requires maintenance and a forum for the purpose of talking about existent flashes should be drawn up. Also MS PAINT FORUM. The many fans and artists of MS Paint have waited for many years now for the chance to express their creativity and goatawful drawing skillz. In addition, a literature forum as well. Thank you, Tom Fulp, for your funderful updates to the site.

I had a feeling we were going to get new forums after the mods buzzing about 17, 18 and 19. The new forums are great but nothing for me to post in. I still think they're good for the site, though. Now I wonder what's the next thing to be launched on this site.

Wi/Ht? listed at the second bottom makes me sad. :P

Horray for the dumping grounds. The celebration is 2 fold: it can help to replace the function of alphas - which has been missed since its decay, and it will make it so that people don't submit things with "Test" or "wip" to the flash portal. That last one has gotten really annoying lately.
