    More consoles & systems
    Hello everyone! Today, you may or may not have noticed one of the (other) outcomes of the recent staff meeting we've had last Saturday: seeing as the Other Systems Discussions category was becoming more and more active, we thought a bit of reorganization wouldn't hurt!


    [​IMG]

    Introducing...These new forums will hopefully be helpful to those of us who don't only own Nintendo consoles/handhelds! Also remember that we're open to suggestions, so if there's anything you'd like to suggest regarding our board organization, please feel free to start a topic in the Site Suggestions & help forum.

    I've been hoping the "Other" forums would be expanded.

    But GBAtemp is meant to advocate Nintendo only :(

    it would be a little too boring to not have other consoles as most gamers these days have more than one console.

    You may also have noticed some new icons in the "last discussions" box on the portal.
    Might take a little time to get used to them, but it's worth it. Now you know at once which topics come from the testing area and those that come from the off-topic forum for example.

    Yeah but some of us need "OMFG HAWT GRAFIX" every now and again so a lot of people own the 360 as well as a Nintendo console. And I guess some people own a PS3. [​IMG]

    this is great, but maybe you should add a sub forum to the gfx forum about requests? (then again the current topics work great too i guess)

    One of them was the head of Sony, but I can't remember the other guy's name... I think he traded it in... [​IMG]
    But seriously, organization is good.

    I guess I had better thank you all on behalf of no_name_trowa_barton.

    Hopefully it will cut down on the amount of threads I open only to discover they are for a system I have no real access to.

    That's good, because all those other consoles are just as important as the Wii and DS, and the number of people that own one is increasing by the minute, which justifies the good decision.

    Very nice! [​IMG]

    hmm, I guess that's because birthday topics are posted in there and that's what -in my opinion- portrays best the purpose of this forum...
    but of course if you think it's a bad idea, feel free to come up with a new, better one [​IMG]

    I asked about that a while back too. It's been buggin me, because you get "Category 6" or some other number when you mouseover the icons.
