    ...This is news worthy? Slow day huh? What with GDC and everything going on, I imagine there's no good news.

    It's a massive change for anyone who actually uses GameFAQ's!

    It's still a terrible website.

    It'll be news worthy once they announce all of the current staff have been fired and replaced with sane people.

    Especially that transperson who will ban you if you refer to their gender incorrectly (assuming they're still there).

    edit: and the current community purged and replaced with sane people too.

    Sheesh, it's 2011 and only now are they actually adding rudimentary forum features.
    What's next, avatars? It's remarkable that they don't even have THAT.

    How about a freakin' EDIT BUTTON?!

    That always pissed me off about GameFAQs. If you want to actually edit your posts, you have to log in to Gamespot.

    Like I'm really going to use PMs or a friends list on GameFAQs. I read, I leave. At least let me correct my mistakes!

    Grrrr.

    Aaactually, they finally added one.
    But you have to be a level 32 user, and you're only allowed 5 edits, within the hour you posted the message.
    So got an important first-post you need to update? TOO BAD.

    I dislike their new style of FAQs with the index and the images and stuff because it takes away from what made it GameFAQs... the text walkthroughs.

    but rydian, it makes the page more presentable and the layout more flexible for users to read through ie. one can select exactly what he wants
    dont they have a text version download? *goes to check*

    That's not Gamefaq's that's the user. It was an option for new faq writers but few have actually gone for it...seems you have bad luck if the stuff you want is in that format by the writers choice.
