Wait, so the game database is going to be from scratch again?

I don't mind too much about post count being reset but will this forum be archived? or will we just no longer have access to old posts at all.

nm the above, already answered.

And what's with the Columbian domain?

Gamewise.com is currently owned by an expensive seller, who's sitting on the domain just for the chance to sell it. While we could and may still buy it someday, .co is an effective and up-and-coming domain. We are comitted to the name because we love it, and weren't willing to pick a crappy website name just to have an "m" at the end of our domain. 

Ah, similar situation as with the vgcharts.org > vgchartz.com change... doesn't bother me btw I was just wondering why.

I think you have already answered this. But where will I have to be to continue current threads? Darths Prediction thread, Arcturus Sony thread, My Nintendo news thread, Wrestling thread, etc.

They will stay here? Also if the categories are removed here for lets say movies, will those topics, threads, etc be transfered over to gamewise at least?

If this has already been answered then nevermind. Thanks!

All threads you have on gamrConnect will stay here on VGChartz. If/when we chop down the amount of forums, threads in categories like "movies" will go to something along the lines of "general discussion" or "off-topic." 



Thanks for the reply! That is good to know.

Not sure what other people think, but I really like the forums format here. It is when you go to other sites that things get congested and over crowded. I guess neogaf is the one to go off of, but even that site it is hard to find what you are looking for. That is just my two cents, this site really has one of the easiest and better organized and better looking forums around. Just not much traffic.

What do you think? I am sure you guys have checked out other sites in your planning stage.

Well certain environments definitely benefit from that kind of forum variety, but I don't think VGChartz is one of them. This is especially true now that VGC is just sales and not news/reviews anymore. For Gamewise which is made for detailed discussion on games it makes more sense to have that kind of variety.

OH, I agree on that. I am just saying the format in general. How the forums look. The color, hot topics, latest topics, my topics, etc. It just all looks organized. Or maybe that is because I am not new to the site and I just know where everything is.

So vgchartz will have more of a gaf forum feel to it. Gamewise is just there to ..enjoy your self and have multiple topics.

 

I still like to see sales, but I guess we could always just make a vgchartz sales thread on gamewise! :P Lol, it will happen.

Oh man I can't wait! And now I can finally just create a new account called Yo John117. No more lowercase for me!

:P I thought they were transfering accounts.

 

I guess since nothing is really transfering, you could just start up a new one. :)

 

 

 

 

Edit*

 

It will be so wierd to have a blank forum. I assume there will be a welcome thread already up when it is finally opened to us all. It will be like joining vgchartz when it first opened up.

Hmm splitting the community doesnt seem wise to me at this point. I feel like one of the forums/websites communities will be affected badly by this. I will try my best to be active on both, but in the long term it just doesnt seem feasible to be an active forum member on two forums. Eventually people are going to choose one, and when the majority chooses one the other will suffer.

I wish you guys all the best though and I will do my part and participate as much as i can :)

We understand that the entirity of the community will not end up on both sites, but we're hoping by opening things up and making both sites less insular we'll end up with much more active (and larger) communities on both sites than we have on this one now. This community is a basis, but we definitely want it to grow, and not stay stagnant.
