The site was easy to hate.  In fact, it still is easy to hate.  It's still not very attractive.  and it is only now starting get get some decent speed to it. 

And the color scheme and boxy nature of it are things only a mother could love.  As a designer, I think it's pretty damn homley.  I'm just looking past it these days.

Yeah I saw that too. While I do agree with some of their criticism, some people take it way overboard.
Like saying typing thing with your elbows is childish, while it is, I've seen those topics 100000 times on Gamespot.

As for moderation, I do think this site needs to be modded but not as harshly as Gamespot.
Getting modded for saying "You're an idiot", is kind of lame when the person was being an irrational tard.
Although calling some an idiot for simply having a different view should be modded.

The problem is the forums.  It's filled with kids swearing and posting porn and the site allows it.  Thus, most people there don't want to post on here.  Look at the threads on here...type your username with your elbow.  Please....do you think topics like that are going to encourage someone to post here?

It's not the site...it's the lack of rules on the forums.  Any site that allows porn to be displayed and doesn't ban the user is asking for trouble.

We don't need a ton of rules, the problem is a bunch of kids coming on here to make threads such as what you said out of boredom or for not knowing better.

the almost inevitable result of no rules will be a 4chan like community of monsters. I'm cool with that though. I like /b/....

oh, and exactly what are gs users saying about gb?

and come on LJ, you and I both know OT on gs has had way more then its fair share of "elbow" idiotic topics

I too went over there when the site was down.

They had a thread claiming that no one cared for Jeff Gerstmann before the Kane & Lynch situation anyway. What a load of rubbish. Jeff and Co made Gamespot what it is today, or what it used to be until they made GiantBomb.

Visual appeal impacts everything in life.  Heavily.  Acting like it doesn't makes you look ridiculous.

To be honest, GameSpot has better forums..

GiantBomb's forums are not that great, especially with the lack of rules. I know they (GB Staff) want the community to govern itself but deep down inside, they knew it would never happen. You can't give freedom to people because they'll just abuse it.

Well, the whole pornography thing has now been barred, swearing is an issue only when it becomes overused, fortunately most of the users here seem to be mature enough not to drop in and out of profanities every other word. The quality of thread topics is occassionally shoddy I will admit, but over time I am sure that things like that will die down.

The only issue with the forums is lack of an easy branching mechanism to find the types of forums you want to go to quickly. 

For example: If I wanted to go quickly to the Nintendo DS forum from here, I don't see an obvious or intuitive way of doing that.   That's a big step down from like...every other forum on the internet.

It's GiantBomb, therefore there is nothing wrong with this site..

You should've known that man.

 Yeah, bullcrap. I have a damn good feeling there's something you aren't telling us.

Also, they are jealous of you guys? What the hell is there to be jealous of? If anything, Giant Bomb should be jealous of the sucess of GameSpot has had, even though Giant Bomb is still relatively new.

But I would REALLY love to know what they are jealous of.

The fact that Gamespot bans people for discussing Giant Bomb and not the other way around is probably a pretty good indication of how things are going to operate here.
