Thanks a lot Dave! Both for the extension and the hard work that's clearly been put in (and is being put in) on the new site.

Can't we just do away with the subscription thing, altogether?

Posted by MmmSkyscraper

Thank you based Dave and engineers.

Thanks for the update and the subscription extension, Dave! Loving the new site and can't wait for Roku app to be back up. Keep up the great work.

The new site looks great, who wouldn't expect a few bumps on the road? Incredible job done by the engineering team, the transition was almost seamless for me. You guys rock.

Thanks, Dave! This wasn't necessary, but I appreciate it very much. The new site looks awesome.

I remember when I used to bitch about stuff all the time. I should find something to bitch about. How about, give me my forum stats back or some shit like that. No, that's old hat. I'll find something. One Day!

You guys exceed my highest expectations when it comes to being a paid subscriber. Thanks for all the hard work and the site is looking awesome. Keep up the good work!

But... watching you scramble is half the fun, Dave.

Seriously, thanks for the new site, thanks for the hard work from all, and thanks for the extra two weeks on my sub. Not that I would have complained anyway, but it's nice that you're offering.

And yes, please play more Blade Runner and record it, then post that recording here on your new website so that I can watch you play Blade Runner.

Good on ya, guys.

@snide- your staff rulez.

(that's how you spell that right?)


Anywhere else and maybe I'd feel like complaining, but with you guys, I know it's not due to a lack of care or hard work.

Keep on, keeping on Snide, the end is almost in site...(HAHA get it?!)

You really don't have to duders, I haven't experienced any problems :)

You really didn't have to do this, but it's amazing that you did it anyway! Downtime was expected, of course - I wasn't really bothered by it beyond the small thought of "oh, right - new site on the way" Love the new look, by the way.

Also seconding (or more like two-hundreding) the call for more Blade Runner.

Wish I lived in Usa. Would have bought Dave a beer at a local pub.

Posted by AssInAss

I didn't experience any problems, but it's great you're aware of it and being so forthright about it.

I can't wait for the blades to start running again.

Thanks Dave, and love what you guys have done with the new site.

Edited by Sharpshooter

Your not a team of prognosticators, Dave. Your a team of website designers and builders and bloody good ones at that. Considering the fact that you guys rebuilt the site from the ground up, we kinda expected a few hiccups along the way. Great work Dave. You and the team deserve a rest after that.

We can renew early whenever the BLLSL T-shirts come around right? Gotta get that $15 discount.

New site looks great. You can keep my 2 weeks though. I think by this point the whole GB team has earned 2 weeks worth of trust, maybe more. Now take some vaca time.

This is so kind! Thank you all for your hard work. The new site looks great.

No complaints! You guys are awesome!

Is anyone still experiencing inbox problems? When they new site launched I all of a sudden had 17 unread messages and whenever I try to go to my inbox I just get a white screen.

Posted by FancyMonkey

You didn't have to do that, but it's appreciated!
So thanks and keep up the good work!

Posted by Archr5

Adding my voice to the choir.

New site is awesome, well worth the downtime.

Posted by shodan2020

I appreciate the extension. Thanks guys, your hard work is noted and I love the new layout and look of the site! I can't wait until we get Blade Runner taken care of too! :)

Posted by MrNood1e

Totally not necessary, but thank you. The new site is fantastic. Keep up the good work, guys!

Posted by PimblyCharles

Is anyone that's using a Windows Phone (WP8 in my case) having issues getting videos to play on the new site? I can't get them to play at all.

Also, thanks for the extra 2 weeks!

Surprised! Have to say I noticed little disruption to my usual Giantbomb viewing (which is daily, and a lot). However I'm grateful for the kind gift Dave. Loving the new site.

Posted by mrsmiley

A true gentleman. Big props to Dave and the rest of the team! When the site is up, it's awesome! :P

Posted by Reisz

You're all class Dave. Thanks and thanks.

It was a shit show of a launch, but totally worth it. Site looks amazing - really great job.

Giant Bomb might just be my favorite internet thing.

Posted by TwistedHicov

This is why GiantBomb is so amazing, because you guys care and appreciate your fans. Thanks Dave for all of your hard work. Keep up the great work GiantBomb.

I didn't pay! ~ I'm on the save all money plan. Mm..

Posted by developerjoe

I don't even care if there were/are issues. I know you guys care about your site and the community and are doing the best you can. I gladly shell out my cash to support this even when I can't access it (which I can now because you are excellent.)

Super Cool, thanks
