So i went in and changed my cc info to renew my yearly membership and after it had processed it took to the thank you page where there was a link to go back www.giantbomb.com but when i clicked it, it took here. Now is this just a inside thing that i don't get or a intention broken link? Has this happen to anyone else?

...I thought BermanBraun was the company that got the other sites and CBSi got Giantbomb and Comicvine. Weird that it would take you there.

Well it's still weird considering that Giantbomb/Comic Vine has no affiliation with BB

Ha. Weird. That shouldn't happen at all! It should go to the thing where they cheer you.

Looks like you just bought another year of premium Screened content.

@AlisterCat: @Kidavenger: I did go to the cheer page and thats where the link was, i don't why it happened my yearly membership was renewed overnight everything seems to have worked correctly other wise. So i just bought two new tee shirts and all is good, except i will have miss most of the BLLSL this year.

AFAIK: as Giant Bomb is running on an old version of the same platform that is running Tested.com (and Screened), it's likely that this is just a case of someone forgetting to point a link away from BermanBraun - probably something that's needed to be fixed/changed since the split, that may be using a code snippet from Andy and co.

Seems like the most plausible, and less conspirational explanation, at least.

(bring on the tin foil hats!)

What conspiracy is there to be seen in this? They accidentally linked to the company which owns the other half of the business which I can only speculate is sharing code? I can understand the OP for not realizing the business behind the split of Whiskey Media,

I don't and didn't mean to imply anything other than i didn't know what was up with where the link took me.
