Need some feedback, please...



Which forums do you frequent on VGF?

Are there forums you never even check on VGF?

If you could "close" three forums at VGF for "inactivity/dislike/other reason", which three would they be and why?

Do you like the achievements and awards?

When was the last time you used (or read) the "Blogs"?

When was the last time you checked "New Posts"?

When was the last time you checked "Who's Online"?

When was the last time you subscribed to a thread?

When was the last time you played a game in the Arcade?

Misc. and Mind Games.

Relationships, Venting, and everything below it.

Mafia HQ: Personal Hatred.
Polls: Redundant: all the polls created can be appropriately placed in another forum.
Anime and Cartoons: Redundant: Should be merged with the TV forum.

Don't Care; achievements overall are worthless.

At least 8 months ago.

Just recently. It's how I found this topic.

Not often.

A few times before, but now if I was interested in a certain topic, I'd keep track of it manually.

A long time ago. Didn't know the arcade still existed in the new board format until you mentioned it. Even then, I'm not interested in it now.


... VGF getting a little too fat?

The ones that show up when I hit "new Posts"

Sports and Fitness, politics, Mafia

I don't see a need to remove any forums

They are ok, I'd like them better if they actually did something though.
Heroine of the Dragon wrote:When was the last time you used (or read) the "Blogs"?
I checked them yesterday, I also checked the social groups. Both of these need some sort of button like "New Posts" on the main forum page. I'm not used to multiple "tabs"

I don't know how to check this with the new setup.

Which forums do you frequent on VGF?
...I'm not sure? All?

Are there forums you never even check on VGF?
Again, I'm not sure?


If you could "close" three forums at VGF for "inactivity/dislike/other reason", which three would they be and why?

Meme Forum, because that place has both run its course and was just a breeding ground for bad jokes.

That's about it for me, really. If I had to nitpick, with the utter lack of topics on such, you could probably put Sony and Microsoft into General Gaming, and I doubt we'd miss much.


Do you like the achievements and awards?
Eh. They're alright. I could go either way with them.

When was the last time you used (or read) the "Blogs"?
About a week ago. I tend to use it very frequently, actually.

When was the last time you checked "New Posts"?
Five seconds ago.

When was the last time you checked "Who's Online"?
I haven't since the redesign. I might do it more now that I realize it.

When was the last time you subscribed to a thread?
Never.

When was the last time you played a game in the Arcade?
Last time was... uh... a year or so back.

And yes Marshmellows. :3

Which forums do you frequent on VGF?
I don't check forums, I check the New Posts list.

If you could "close" three forums at VGF for "inactivity/dislike/other reason", which three would they be and why?
l337, probably. It's completely dead and has been for years. That's all I can think of.

Do you like the achievements and awards?
No - I think they are a noisy distraction and chew up screen space.

When was the last time you used (or read) the "Blogs"?
I don't read the blogs.

When was the last time you checked "New Posts"?
I check this one multiple times every day. It's how I get to all the content.

When was the last time you checked "Who's Online"?
The last Mafia game.

When was the last time you subscribed to a thread?
I subscribe automatically every time I reply.

When was the last time you played a game in the Arcade?

Years ago.

The ones that have new posts.

The ones that don't have new posts.

If you could "close" three forums at VGF for "inactivity/dislike/other reason", which three would they be and why?
I probably wouldn't.

No. In fact, I feel like they just take up space.

When was the last time you used (or read) the "Blogs"?
I wrote in mine occasionally a few years ago.

When was the last time you checked "New Posts"?
That's actually how I navigate the forums, unless there's a specific thread I want to check that hasn't gotten new posts.

When was the last time you checked "Who's Online"?
A few days ago.

When was the last time you subscribed to a thread?
Mmm... never?

When was the last time you played a game in the Arcade?

Which forums do you frequent on VGF?

Mainly just the Misc., but Nintendo, PS, Xbox forums I check out to. Plus current events.

Mafia, Politics (I usually hate politics), and some of the older forums. (Gunjin)

If you could "close" three forums at VGF for "inactivity/dislike/other reason", which three would they be and why?

Memes, and possibly, possibly, Mindless Link.Do you like the achievements and awards?

When was the last time you used (or read) the "Blogs"?

I still check them every few days for new ones.

When was the last time you checked "New Posts"?

I remember I used to navigate by looking to see if that new post symbol was bright to navigate, but I only use the new posts now.

Last time I was online.

When was the last time you subscribed to a thread?

Uhhh....

When was the last time you played a game in the Arcade?

A few weeks ago, actually. I just realized I still have the Donkey Kong record I set when I was 11.
