So I understand archiving boards for old games nobody talks about anymore, but why would you archive "series" boards for franchises that are getting new entries soon (eg. Dark Souls, Dragon Age, MGS, et al)?? Just so you can then re-create new ones when those games come out?


I asked the same question, and here was his response.

Can't wait for the UI changes.


Because we'd rather people share their Kingdom Hearts / Dragon Age / etc, thoughts on PlayStation General. 

 

PlayStation General is by far, the most trafficked spot on PS Community. So if you've got something you want to share about those games, make a thread on it here! That way it'll be seen by waaayyyyyy more people and have a more vibrant discussion. Otherwise, it will be tucked away where not many would see it. 

 

Although that would ensure that only people who really really like the series find that board, it's still buried. We want good conversations to live where the rest of the community is; so that there's more substance and more community discovery, etc, 

 

hope that makes sense.

I don't get it..  Smiley Frustrated


I'll simply add a link to my thread in my signature, so people can easily find the info.

 

Example for linking a thread in my Sig:

 

Click me to find out about getting into KZ: M Beta.

 

That way my post won't get lost on page 5, as people will see a link in my sig every time I post.

What, what will happen to that list of forums listed? I'm confused!

 

And will this affect the All Stars forums in any bad way? It's still very active!
