As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around
1am MIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions
. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum
. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

"Heartfelt declaration or um...sarcasm, maybe?"
Yes, if something doesn't work the first time it will never work ever at all forever.
Its annoying because it's shitty user experience.
I agree with both of these statements. It's silly to say you wasted your money because it's not working right away, but it IS a disgustingly lousy user experience which shows a total disregard for the customer.
Personally, I feel that the more useless, one time user accounts I have to create to actually play the game I just paid for, the more I enjoy the game. I can't wait for Grand Theft Auto V so that in addition to Steam I can sign up for Games for Windows Live, Rockstar Social Club, StarDock, Origin, SecuROM Validator, Punkbuster, Valve Anti-Cheat Service, Warden, and Martha Stewart Living.com
Jumping through fucking ridiculous hoops is like a metagame before the actual game, and I can't get enough of it!
