Thanks, this forums did get somewhat squashed when everything became 5 main topics, it's good to clean the house sometimes Smiley Wink!

 

oh, btw...

What about that PS4 sticky... kidding Smiley Wink!

 

 


Well; we're going to continue to 'squish' as evidenced by the archiving of several boards. so expect conversations to become a lot more centralized into one major PlayStation Gaming board. 

 

However, for our big 1st party titles like Uncharted, God of War, The Last of Us, Sound Shapes, etc; those will continue to have their own seperate boards. It makes sense that we, as PlayStation provide good community spots for our 1st party stuff. For the rest of the gaming discussions, we'd love to centralize those into one awesome area. This will happen over time, so expect more 'squishing'! but I think you'll find it'll make the community a more vibrant place to be. 


Question: PlayStation Home thread. that is all.

I can understand locking thread topics. BUT I totally disagree with removal from the archives. Perhaps they should be consolidated under a single new banner such as "historical"

Oh jeez. This is going to be awful. These guys aren't just getting rid of forums, they are getting rid of individual communities within these forums. Just look at the MGS forum for example, a tight knit group of users that have been here for years, they want to talk with other people that are knowledgeable about the series. They aren't going to want to wade through a bunch of other stuff to get to MGS discussions. I imagine it will be the same for users of a lot of the other sections that are being cut.

 

This is just going to turn people off from coming here. Smiley Mad


thats what grinds my gears the most.

its like they are tearing down individual appartment buildings and making everyone live in one giant house together.

 

and its not just that im upset about the removal of the MGS forum, i also genuinly think merging everything together is a bad idea.

it will create chaos with topics about a bunch of different subjects all cluttered into one forum. topics will get burried under other topics and they will be remade over and over also.

cant wait when the General forum gets flooded with topics about games coming out soon that used to have their own forums. MGS5, Kingdom Hearts 3, Dark Souls 2 and such.

Sad to see Guitar Hero and Rock Band boards closing as I used to live in those boards. But it's the right thing to do since those games are dead anyway.

 

Closing the Madden board is a shock since a new one comes out next week. This is probably gonna lead to Sports General being spammed with Online Franchise requests.

 

Closing the Fallout, Dragon Age, Metal Gear Solid (!), Mass Effect and Resident Evil boards are even more of a shock. Especially the MGS board. Looks like I have to clean out my bookmarks again.

 

The rest either aren't suprising or should have been archived a long time ago.

Yes and they're both completely useless and unrelated to playstation gaming.


 

(i read again. you mean PlayStation General and PlayStation Home AND Off-Topic is useless...since they both (not Home) are the part of the Main forums)

 

but if there going to remove it then mostly Home Users, MVP (Most MVP are very active) and Developers (mostly there as well) would get mad over that...

 

but since PS Home is a 'virtual 3D social gaming platform' then it can be unrelated to Gaming. but WHY IS IT UNDER "GAMES"

LOL

 

but still. i perfer moving PS Home forum board to something else than just "Games" (and no merging)

Wait, the LBP and Ratchet and Clank forums were re-merged with the main forums? I don't remember that being announced.
