Seems like a lot of stuff is getting cut. I can understand some of the dead game forums being allowed to die but I'd personally prefer it if popular third-party game forums still existed.

As an example, I'm talking about starhawk which is almost undoubtedly my favorite game however gaming with friends is always more fun and how will I find those interested without this section?

What do you guys think about removal and closure of the Home section?


It would totally clean up the forums for sure. Smiley Tongue

It's a great question regarding your example of Starhawk. I mentioned in the OP that we'd have dedicated threads for specific games. And we'll make sure those threads are very easy to find. However, it will take some time to build threads for many big games that are out there, but we'll be looking to the community to help make those dedicated threads for titles as they come. 

 

More on this later, but I think you'll get a feel of how this will work when we go live and the changes are made by end of next week.

Will these be smooth adjustments or will it be difficult to access the PlayStation Forums between the 21st and 23rd of January?

Let's leave the Home section where it is.  If Home threads started popping up in General or OT, it would be far beyond clutter, and then you would have no choice but to see Home-based discussion.

 

If you don't like Home, stay away from the Home forums and the program itself.  There's no need to take it away for others.

Some people thought the home forums were getting closed down. Well, they were wrong. Smiley LOL

 

Seriously though, nice changes, I'm looking forward to better moderation on these forums, especially during the weekends.

I'm looking forward to the positive changes made to the forums, and I would love the concept of returning colored ranks for Welcoming Committes, PlayStation MVPs, and members who won contests and using custom made avatars as long as they meet the forum rules.

Oh dear!

 

I knew some of these changes were coming, the Moderation one has concerned me for some time now, just now I saw some apparent 'moderation' on a post that in my view didn't need it, looks as though it's likely to get worse.

 

One word of advice, take a screen-shot of your post count, just in case!
