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. 


Don't worry dangerous, they already heard objections to closing ones like starhawk months ago, I'm there for us.  That being said I dont think our traffic level will justify it staying :smileysad:.

 

I bet we can get a "Starhawk" label though, right Mochuuu?

Feedback? i know a lot of these things won't happen but might as well suggest then

 

Custom colored ranks=Bring back ranks with special colors like when people won contest etc.Having custom colors makes the MVP's stand out more a lot of people were not happy with that change.I think the reason why the MVP's were confused as moderators was because their name color was almost the same.If they bring back custom colored ranks just make the MVP's a specific color and not similar to the one's our moderators or community managers and have an exclusive color for all special ranks if they don't want a lot of confusion.

 

Custom avatars=Seriously the EU forums have custom avatars why cannot we have then here as well?

 

More signature space=The amount of signature space we have here is very limited that i have to resize my signature.More signature space would be nice.


Feeling any Dejavu mochuuu?     :smileytongue:

 

I wish we could get the color name ranks back for event rewards too.

Who is the communist that decides what is clean or not? what about M- rated games? Do we have to pander to children who's parents have no interest in their growing deadbeat child? Will there be forums where cursing is allowed or do we have to keep circumventing? What about low ping and aimbots- isn't banning them more important then thought control? Don't get angry- just being real.

What ever helps keep the conversation civil and interesting. Change effects people, but if it is easy, I don't see much differing after implementation.

 

While I never really ventured into the game specific sections, I'll look forward to a RPG game thread.

The Sony Moderation staff will decide what they wish to have and to not have on their privately owned internet forum.  

Its not a communist place at all, hence the private ownership and rules that accompany said private ownership :smileywink:.

Why oh Why? Look at all the sections that you have all ready closed. You drive people away by doing this. Honestly you guys had a Dragon Age forum but you closed that. Now I find myself going to the Bioware forums to discuss anything Dragon Age or Mass Effect. You guys closed the Tomb Raider boards, so now if I want to discuss Tomb Raider I go over there. I swear to you if you close the God of War forums, I will leave! I will not be part of a forum that does nothing but take everything away from these forums!

When sony first mentioned labels I ran off to another forum that uses them to see how it worked.  I prefer the section/subsection setup myself but the tags did allow you to pull threads to the top for the topics you wanted.....provided a poster used the proper ones.
