It's a bit unorganized. Is it just like this because it's "beta" or was this intentional from the start?

#2 Posted by 11samype (70 posts) -

It's a beta, things can and probably will change.

#3 Posted by sdodd02 (722 posts) -

it may be changed, but it's pretty well organized, it's just there is one board where everything shows up.  There is a board for everything.

#4 Posted by banksrob (1126 posts) -

yea as long as people post the right topics in the right places

I've already had a private conversation with another memebr and I've said that this stuff is crazily messy!
You can post something then refresh the page and it's already hit the 2nd page!
This must have at least 20 posts a minute at peak times!

#6 Posted by WorldsFastestShrimpPeeler (458 posts) -

I like it now, took some time to get used to, but it turned out alright.
Plus like samype said, It's the beta, so there probably will be some changes.

I actually don't mind the forum set-up...it reminds me of 1UP, but there is still order because every game/system/etc has its own board. So there is an individual board for everything, but the most current (or popular) posts just end up in the initial forum section.

#8 Posted by cann3dheat (227 posts) -

It's day 2, beta and everyone's flooding the forums with random excitement.

Give it a week. All shall be normal.

ReTarDedFisHy loves this forum setup...
Confused face :S

That's not messy. The boards are just moving fast.
#11 Posted by dillonator (145 posts) -

I personally really like the way the forums are done.

And there is order...it just takes some outside the box thinking and actually subject material posting.  It's no more just ala carte posting.  If you want to talk about XBox 360, you need to go to the XBox 360.

Things almost always change after betas that's what they're for

#13 Posted by Why_So_Serious (803 posts) -

Its a beta. And for the beta it is well-organized. Soon we will get mods and the forums might change a little as we move out of the beta stages and move to the real site. Most likely though we will see the same setup for the boards/forums.

#14 Posted by Schizoid (1064 posts) -

An index with a listing of all of the forums would be nicer.

#15 Posted by dartagnan (71 posts) -

People are posting enormous amounts to boost their post-count, I'm hoping It'll die down in a week or two.

True but to me this sin't really a good thing. Nothing the guys can do about tit though. Hopefully as the other guy said it will calm down in a few days.
#17 Posted by Demyx (3237 posts) -

I'm sure things will change for the better. It probably is pretty crowded also

#18 Posted by Dr_Feelgood38 (1550 posts) -

I like the forums so far. There's always something to talk about and there are a lot of great random and funny topics. I'm fine with the layout too. Doesn't bother me.

#19 Edited by Jensonb (1743 posts) -

I like the way the forums are. If you want to talk about something in particular, you just go to its page or, if you're just in a social mood, you hit up the main page and there's a bunch of active topics to participate in.

#20 Posted by Killuminati (93 posts) -

Who are you guys kidding? The way these forums are setup they suck. It's very hard to find specific boards. I hope they clean this up a bit we need a index. If they don't I may just stick to Gamespot even though they are ridiculously strict. Gamespot's forums are so much easier to navigate that's why they are so popular.

My seething hatred of Gamespot aside, I have to (kind of) agree. I'd like a more stream-lined forum index. I don't hate the current layout, mind you, I'm just not terribly fond of it.
#22 Posted by PinkElephant (112 posts) -

I kind of like how it's set up. You have really specific boards, but every post has a chance because of the "Newest Topics" section.

#23 Posted by Hans16 (46 posts) -

Newest Topics should go... its way to messy and no one seems to know what board they post to when they click topics in there.

other than that it seems ok

#24 Posted by Sentry (4197 posts) -

The forums are good, its just that there are a lot of duplicate threads and whatnot. That can be solved with mods and a report button.

yeah the duplicates are annoying

#26 Posted by Soulless (143 posts) -

It's very likely that it will change in some way.  It's the beta after all.

That being said, it's pretty good the way it is, so it's not likely it's gonna change much.

#27 Posted by unworthyBOZO (201 posts) -

it will probably change

#28 Posted by ExoM7 (173 posts) -

I kinda dig the general forum area. I don't like that the views are listed before the posts. I'll get used to it, but it just doesn't look right. >_>

#29 Posted by MasterSplinter (636 posts) -

I don't think people realize that literally every game in the database has its own thread. That is why the forums are cluttered with General Discussion threads. I think they will address the issue at some point, probably during the podcast.

#30 Posted by ChaosTony (102 posts) -

It's very non-traditional, but I like it.  It's nice to see a smattering of topics about just about anything.

#31 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

I hope the forums stay like this, to be honest, I love the layout.

#32 Posted by khit (150 posts) -

It's pretty hard to navigate for me.

#33 Posted by TheSuperPickle (9 posts) -

(1st post yaaay) I can deal with it, but I do hope for something different.

#34 Posted by Schadenfreude (206 posts) -

I just want the spam cut back and specifically, the thread dedicated to spam to go away. :) I think things will only go up from there!

#35 Posted by tmontana1004 (376 posts) -

It's a decent start, but things have to change. We should make a thread proposing new ideas.

#36 Posted by DarkLegend (1387 posts) -

You can keep your hopes up.
