I think you guys could get a connected experience between content and the wiki if you guys made the "View the Wiki" button bigger. There are lot of times where i want to find out release date and history of a game through the QL. Just a suggestions!

I haven't watched the video yet, I saw the news on my RSS feed and so i came here to ask questions. I don't know if they've been answered in the video yet. If so, just ignore this post.

  • When you guys say the editorial team of GB is moving to GS, will Vinny move too? To be blunt, GB to me is Jeff, Vinny and Dave. I love you all but the back bone of GB for me is you three.
  • Did you come to them or did they come to you? If they came to you and wished to purchase the sites, did you feel like a badass that after they fired you all from GS 2-3 years ago now they want you back?
  • When you you guys say that the engineering team is going to develop more sites with the same philosophies, does that mean Giant Bomb is no longer part of that philosophy? Will the engineering team still be acquired by GS parent co.? Will they work on the GB sites or will the GS engineers work on it?
  • Will we still see QL, Giant Bombcasts, RPG, LOLs and TNT?
  • Was this the plan from the beginning? Were you all looking to sell the sites after they became popular?
  • Are Tested and Giant Bomb still part of the same family after the mergers? Or will they be separate, i know Will never really liked Ryan, but i loved how the two sites did things together.
  • After the merger will you become more transparent with what Whiskey Media really was? Was it profitable? If it were, you wouldn't need to merge. What were initial and end goals and what were some of the real complications with running an independent site?
  • I know things change, but what happened to the goal to develop an independent voice? Wasn't that the goal from the beginning with Giant Bomb?
  • How much Influence will GS parent co. have on GB? With Whiskey Media the business and the editorial team was said to be separate. How will this change?
  • Will you now call Giant Bomb, The New Giant Bomb?

The one thing I appreciate, respect and admire about any site, tech, company and people is their transparency. Transparency is the best gift you can give members of the community. It breeds trust, it helps us understand motives and above all it helps us get past changes. I bet the most popular videos and podcasts were the ones where you guys took us through the process. I hope in the next couple of days, you'll do the same.

Thanks Dave for reading this. If you got this far.

If you live in Australia there's a company (TPG) here that sells $17 a month deals. $500 worth of calls and 1.5GB of data. No Contract. They're with Optus in case you want to check their coverage. Some contracts are good. Some are bad. I do recommend you buy your phone out right though.

@Village_Guy: Is it really pornographic though? I guess it does say Cartoon Porn at the end. I thought it was just raunchy starcraft/warcraft parody.

@ToastMan: I sorta agree with you, but then i remember that time Jeff played that school girl game where he shot love hearts. It was in one of the Live Shows. That cracked me up.
