Feedback wanted on General Gaming discussion area!
« on: January 17, 2005, 12:26:59 PM »

Gang,

I was originally thinking that maybe we could get by without a General Discussion area.  We'd certainly like to avoid having too many areas.

However, lately, I keep coming up with too many scenarios that don't fit well in a specific area.  Examples

PSP versus DS debate
(general) online etiquette
Types of gamers
Business/Industry (example:  EA NFL exclusive)

So at this point we are definitely leaning towards opening a general discussion area (possibly integrating the 'other gaming' area).  But we value the input of the members here.

So I'd like to open up this thread to any member feedback regarding the creation of a General Game Discussion area, along with any other thoughts on the structure of the areas here at TehBias.com.  Please let us know what you think.

Due to the extremely hot news regarding EA/ESPN, I went ahead and made the change so I could post the news in an appropriate area.  But the current structure is not permanent, and your feedback is still welcomed.

Although some stuff might get overlooked with to many areas, I like having a General Discussion area.  This forum isn't overwhelmingly huge yet, so all topics are easily accessed.  I'm liking it so far.

I also like the idea of the general gaming discussion forum.  For example, I was just thinking of posting something asking people's opinions on upcoming Baseball games.  It would be nice to do this in a general area, even though I will be getting whichever one I buy for the Xbox.  Since most of the games will be available on the big 3 consoles, it will give everyone an opportunity to discuss the general merits and possible flaws regardless of platform.

One thing I would recommend is a link to teh podcast from the main page.  Maybe add those little flag buttons of the different places you can DL it from.

I知 new to the site and really have a tough time figuring out who will be on what night with what game and what time.  I only have like 2 games to go online with so Im not sure how much what game applies.  But is there a way to tell who will be playing what game at a given night and time.   Maybe a headline or a sticky with a sign up sheet.  Im new so maybe im missing something, but when I come on and try to figure it out I go through a post and get lost;  a couple of games get mentioned and who may or may not be there.  If there could be some way to filter the data and see perhaps that:
GRAW 9pm est.
Giotto Yes
Appel maybe 11pm

Hey Giotto,

We池e not usually that specific around here.  Occasionally, especially when a new game releases, we値l have a specific night we値l all try to get together and play.  Usually we just meet up online and go with the flow.  Take last night, we wound up playing GRAW for a bit and then moved to Burnout. 

It would probably be easiest for you if you threw a few invites out to the members here and then you can see when we池e on and what we池e playing.  And also, if you would like to play something specific and you have a time you can play, start a thread and I知 sure we値l let you know if we値l be around then. :)

Check the Online Game Scheduling section.  Lots of times someone will post when they want to play something specific.   Looking forward to our next Madden encounter. :)

Thanks for the reminder about fixing the clocks this weekend in the Newsbox; however, I couldn't help but notice that the clock here at TB is still an hour behind.  ;)
