The original Playstation forums!

7 replies 7 views Edited Mar 28, 2011

I figure some people here would find this interesting.

..Due to the trouble I have navigating this site, this was the best looking place to post this, so move it if it's not.

This is the boardsus.playstation.com site in 2002.

I thought it was kinda neat to see the difference between now and then.

My computer won't show me the image... Oh well. I think I've seen some images of it before, and they were some of the best looking forums I've ever seen... Or maybe I'm thinking of the how they were around 08, 09 (they were kind of similar, right?). I don't know, but whatever, if Sony would make these forums look as close to the older versions as possible (using Jive of course), this place might become active again.

This was the most visited forum for me before the change. Now I barely come in because of how much they changed the navigation. Was it really necessary?

after 2 updates and lots of $$$$, sony is not going back. this board used to have thousands of active posters.. it now averages around 400 on a daily basis.

I agree they ruined this forum it used to be so much easier to navigate on here back when it was black and red with colored names. I used to be on here all the time and my post count has barely moved since they changed this site. I actually just clicked on here today to see how it is and I dont like it wish they would change it back to something similar like the old forum.Whoever is in charge change it backkk everyone left because of this change

yeah they need to change it back definitely.... this place used to be so much fun, now it's just a melting pot for immature kids yelling at each other all day long....

PLUS: I can't even log in here using my PS3 (kinda dumb, since it's a forum partly for this console...), or my iPhone (which would be nice so I can come here when I am not on my computer)...

then again, I don't think the first priority of these forums is the user-friendliness, anymore...

The forums were at it's best before they got rid of the PlayStation®Underground in December of 2008. It all started going downhill from there.
