Love you guys!

This on top of a mostly smooth site relaunch? You guys are just awesome. Keep up the fantastic work.

I'm just glad to know RSS feeds will be fixed; that's how I GB

Edited by Bored_Ming

I've seen bugs you people wouldn't believe. 503, login fail and polls on fire off the shoulder of TNT. I watched chat room crashes glitter in the dark on Unprofessional Fridays. All those bugs will be lost in time, like tears in rain.

New site looks awesome. Thanks guys for all the hard work.

Awesome, thanks, Dave!

Thanks for the consideration. This is awesome.

Not at all necessary, but thanks.

Edited by Positrark

Not necessary but still a very nice gesture. Site is looking good with some really cool features. I just said out loud "What kind of sorcery is this?" when a video on a page I had reloaded after closing the page started playing right where I left it. Really useful for someone like me, who usually watches the longer videos in several parts, while never remembering how far I have gotten.

Very nice gesture. Thank you duder, and keep up the good work! :)

I've had problems streaming video on my laptop, and it's a nonstarter on iPad.

Felt like a paying beta-tester, so thank you for taking that hit on your end.

Not all sites would have done it.

Posted by Joker369

Thanks guys. You didn't really need to do that.

Posted by Kosayn

Thanks, loyalty +1.

I can only imagine what building this site is like based on my archaic circa-2004 web design work.

Edited by Undeadpool

I absolutely love the new look, so the wait is clearly worth it.

Posted by laxbro19

Don't sweat it Dave. The new site is well worth the wait and I know of a few sites that would scoff at giving away 2 free weeks of premium status to users. Also I'll keep it on the D.L. about the "Skin Jobs,".

Ya don't owe me anything, ya big palooka. Now get back in that ring and fight the good fight.

Despite the server errors, I'm loving the new site Dave. Excellent job on it and thank you for the sub extension.

Posted by BenderUnit22

Funny enough, I got a 500 on my way here. But no problem, the redesign is great and a bit of downtime and some bugs were to be expected. Can't wait for Blade Runner.

Posted by crovaxpso

Totally unnecessary but appreciated. Congratulations on the new site!

Posted by beast780

Dave you guys are awesome!

Posted by pickassoreborn

Nice surprise - I didn't feel that impacted by what happened, but appreciate it all the same. The new site looks beautiful - Dave, Alexis and all involved have produced a very impressive site design which feels fresh yet still familiar. Lovely stuff.

I'm really liking the site Dave, keep up the good work. I'm sure the community will give you all the time you need to get the bugs ironed out.

Sweet. Thanks guys and keep up the good work!

Keep up the good work, engineers! The new site is looking awesome.

I use the site everyday and I was hardly bothered by the transition issues.

Posted by Branthog

Hey, @snide -- you guys hardly need to do that, as far as I'm concerned. The transition has included some flaws (lots of 404s and 503s still, weird stuff like PMs all being centered, instead of left-justified, etc) -- but that's to be expected.

If you guys have anyone you can think of that especially deserves an annual gift subscription, I'd be glad to send one their way on behalf of you duders.

Despite all my bitching, you guys do a commendable job and continue to really out-due everything else that's out there.

I've seen sea serpents you people wouldn't believe. APIs on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I've seen comments glitter in the dark near the podcast page. All these...moments...will be lost, like, data in beta. Time - to refresh.

Posted by StrikeALight

No Problemo, Dave!

Posted by sloppydisk

That is really nice of you guys! thank you for this unnecessary kindness! Also the site looks great.

Posted by ShadowKnight508

Cheers for all of the hard work that you guys are putting into this wonderful community!

Edited by TadThuggish

Not a big problem for me, but thanks, duder.

Posted by mikey87144

Wasn't that bad of a launch. You guys were pretty good considering everything. Thanks for the gesture though.

Posted by Abendlaender

Seriously Dave, don't worry too much about it. It's super hard to get a site running and you and your team are doing a great job.

Edited by Gamer_152

Good stuff, thanks guys.

Posted by Irishranger

Ok, but I really didn't feel all that put out. Even the roughest times seemed like they didn't last that long. Of course, I was working, spending time with my gf, and generally living life. But, hey, whatever, duders. Keep up the good work!!

Posted by Schnoggi

The new site is looking great, and as always the content is superb.

One of the main reason this site has become my primary source for entertainment and news related to games.

Keep up the excellent work

Posted by NoelVeiga

Oh, wow. I... actually wasn't even close to being on a "want my money back" mood about the transition. Half a day offline and some 500 errors are kinda par for the course on things like these.

...

Not that I won't gladly take two weeks of membership for free, though :)

Edited by GarryDH

I don't post often but just had to say thanks for all you guys' hard work. I didn't feel like any compensation was necessary (I've seen smaller projects go a lot worse!) but the extension is definitely much appreciated.

Posted by peritus

That's an awesome thing to do!

Posted by thekitkatshuffler

This'll be a nice gesture to help make up for the incredibly dodgy video streaming system for the last 6 months and the Christmas sale that anyone who joined a few weeks before missed out on.

THANKS!!

Posted by MAJID

I love you Dave. A true gent.

Edited by vinster345

<p>It's what you should do which makes its great that you're actually doing it. Good luck working through the bugs!</p>

Thanks for all your hard work guys! I love the new site.

Posted by baldgye

The site relaunch has been nothing short of amazing, given how big the site is and how much content you have to deal with it's probally the best relaunch of a site I've ever come across.

So, I feel kinda bad for having the extra two weeks subscription... but thanks to all the guys for making it so painless and still being able to get live content out anyway!

Posted by uhohlovehascometotown

thank you, dave. You guys are really one of a kind and i'm glad that i have you guys. As long as i'm employed, i'll always be a premium member.
