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 1amMIDNIGHT 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!
As a relative newcomer to these forums I've been pleasantly surprised how generally welcoming it is. If anything it was the major contributor in me helping VThornheart out in his quest to attend PAX this year by working on his video entry for Bioware's Minion competition.
In recognition of this I have decided to make a badge that can be hung from the PAX pass you'll be getting at the event. I've already made one for the people that are coming to the event from foreign climes and seeing the reaction that has got from those that do reside in the US and not wanting to have them feel left out I am now working on a similar badge for them also.
The pics of what I have created thus far can be seen by clicking on the spoiler buttons below:
Anyone who frequents these forums is eligable to get one of these badges. I will however have a limited supply of them so they will be handed out on a first come - first serve basis.
Thoughts and suggestions for improving what I have so far come up with would be appreciated.
