Are you leaving the TTG forums? Tell us where you're going so we can stick together.

edited September 2013 in General Chat

I love you guys. Marsden, Alcoremortis, Coolsome, der_ketzer, Vainamoinen, Fawful, Dashing, and everybody else of the regulars here whose names don't come immediately to my mind as I type this.

I want to make sure that if we jump ship here, we for the most part land in the same place. So, if you really are permanently ditching this place for Double Fine or ScummVM or Mixnmojo or something, let us all know so we can stick together and keep in touch.

  • Jenni and Flesk are already at the Double Fine forums. I've just joined them in a rather finely worded introductory thread COUGHhttp://www.doublefine.com/forums/viewthread/10150/COUGH, so feel free to come along and say Hi.

  • I honestly see no point in leaving. Yes the layout is different but I think after a bit, i can get used to it. The old forums seemed to be down more and more and its good to finally see the downtime problem fixed. My main problems is that the forums can get a little confusing thanks to the new layout and the new avatar system.

  • I won't be leaving, but I'm at all of those places. I'm Jenni at Double Fine and Mixnmojo/Lucasforums and JenniBee at the ScummVM forums. So, if all of y'all decide to go to one of those places, I'm there too. :)

  • Me , Bioshock , TeamKennyAlways , Cany , I Waste My Time and Ben Paul are at Proboards . Ben made a Walking Dead Game Forum there . But I won't quit this forum .

  • Don't see a point in leaving. I am starting to not like the new layout, but I can get used to it. I may join double fine later though if it winds up that way too many people left over there though.

  • I don't think I'll be posting a lot now, since my state of mind is being compromised by, no offense, a very messy forum layout. It all is just too condensed, and not very well outlined at all.

    Anyway, I'm not leaving, but if you want to find me, I'm also at the TV Tropes forums. Maybe occasionally at the VG Resource, but not as often as I used to, mostly considering I've outgrown that place.

  • I've technically got an account on DoubleFine, but I haven't really posted much with it in forever. Alcoremortis there as well, though. Can't even remember my password.

    I'll give these new forums two weeks to a month, I think, to see if it becomes more rational. If I still can't stand it by the end of that time, there's probably very little that will make me change my mind. And then I'll move.

  • I am not leaving fully, I am just going to be using Ben's forum to post my fan fic and other things, so I am still here somewhat.

  • I won't leave here either, but I would like to have a look at that forum. Link?

    How do you actually post on the Double Fine forums (there is no obvious way to post or am I just dumb)?
    Edit:Oh I can't comment for up to 24 hours maybe I will have second thoughts in that time...

  • I'm not jumping ship (not right now, at least), but I'm going to start taking an interest in the Double Fine boards.

  • What is Double Fine anyway, I know it is a forum but beyond that?

  • edited September 2013

    Telltale tried fixing something that wasn't broken - fuck that noise...

    I won't be posting here unless they change the layout back.

    EDIT: I've migrated to Ben's forum.

  • It really is a mass exodus of everyone, I never thought I would ever see that.

  • Fanbase Holocaust.

  • 'Tis the rapture.

    Every man for themselves.

  • Double Fine is a video game developer. Because their CEO is an old Point and Click Adventure Game designer, there's a lot of overlap in the fanbases of Old Telltale and Double Fine.

    Since you're from the AAA console-focused general gaming culture, you'd neither understand nor be interested. This place will likely be fine for your type.

  • I'm going to stay for now. See how many of the old guard stick. I am, however, refusing to use the reply function to keep shit linear. I will just quote.

  • hey look a threaded discussion

    Suck it sideways!

  • "Rather Dashing: hey look a threaded discussion"

    Suck it sideways!

    o no wat am i doing

  • He's having the fuck with me.

    Incidentally, I learn talking of the Yakov Smirnoff.

    I speak good now.

    People using these broken discussion boards will not follow your etiquette. The concept of linear discussions will fall apart around you regardless of your adherence.

    THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN DO

  • Well then I can just annoy the shit out of them by not participating.
    While I'm here anyway. I like a fair amount of you and I don't really want to leave, but I don't really want to go to the DF forum either. So if everyone leaves, then fuck it.

  • I'm pretty set on leaving when I've made my din and Telltale hasn't changed a damn thing because they really don't care, and why should they? Direct purchases from the website must be an insanely tiny minority that they don't have to give a shit about anymore.

    But no, I'm not really a Double Fine fan and frankly I'm annoyed enough by the LucasArts Elitism in portions of the Adventure Game Community, I have no reason to make it worse by migrating to Double Fine. I'll have to find a new community more relevant to my interests that simply won't include many of you people.

  • Sorry to hear that, where ever you go I am sure will be a better place because of it.

  • It was broken. The site had all kinds of problems and needed to be replaced. That said, this is a step backwards. This site has been even more broken so far and is not the best design. Why they would invest the time and money into building their own forum software when they could've bought a license for something that works better is beyond me.

  • I second that. Everywhere's better with a bit of Dashing.

  • I'm still waiting for my account to allow me to post on the Double Fine forums as I do like Double Fine and a lot of the best people from these forums seem to be going there...

    When I can post over there I will but I'm not sure if I'm leaving permanently just yet...

  • I think I'll slowly fade out from here and migrate over to DF. I mean, pretty much everyone I get on with is over there already. Just wish I could post!

    Given I have nowhere to jump ship right now, I'm destined to become Billy no-mates on this bloated beige slug of a forum. FML.

  • But no, I'm not really a Double Fine fan and frankly I'm annoyed enough by the LucasArts Elitism in portions of the Adventure Game Community, I have no reason to make it worse by migrating to Double Fine.

    DISREGARD THAT, TOTALLY AT DOUBLE FINE.

  • Johro in response to Mr. D: o no wat am i doing

    Seriously, even smack talk doesn't work threaded.

    That's exactly what I was wondering.

    Who are some members of the web team who post here? I would like to hear their responses to the feedback being posted here.

  • I didn't know how to post either. I was going to ask in this thread, but I don't have to now

    Guru's post over on the DoubleFine forums should help explain it a little to those who are completely in the dark as to what happened. I've got a post explaining things as well, but his is more specific.
