    We are a blizzard gaming forum, nobody is going to post if we have one section for diablo. We need to make it into multiple more specific sections..

    Common chris, you call yourself an admin?

    And the reason im not a mod isn't because i shared my password.. i was a global mod again after i did that. It's because you guys don't trust me, but i don't want to be a mod anyway.

    We will be expanding the actual gaming forums. It's just that I'm not sure if we should merge some of the really close-related subforums so we don't have so many.

    What do you think?

    Asking people in a "trolling" way: "Why the fuck is my CT not showing" like you were a desperate lunatic IS considered a "bullshit topic". I told you that I was able to see your CT, the only thing was you must have either 1) IE didn't pick it up, 2) Imageshack was down. You didn't have to make a thread about it, and if you did - you should have asked in a calm and effective manner saying something like:

    Then, people would have probably replied and Renzo wouldn't have bashed you for a harmless warning.

    I only removed the first one because it made some sense, and had a point.

    Honestly, the way you type is often the cause that got you in trouble many times. So think about what and how you are writing before you hit that Submit button.

    We have that now though...

    We are also not really a Blizzard Gaming forum anymore. It was pretty much decided over the years via adding new sections and shit. Because we feared that Blizzard wasn't getting that popular anymore. Now I think the reason we are called "Battle"forums is because we actually fight amongst each other and act like a soap opera each and every day.

    And I only wanted to mass-merge the Console Gaming section.

    And besides, about half of the Blizzard stuff can be merged into "one". Like General Discussion and Strategies can become one. UMS needs a seperate section. And Replays can either join the merge, or stay itself. Maybe I should have explained THAT part better.

    Why is news and announcements at the very bottom of this site?

    Yeah, BF Community should be higher up in the hierarchy.

    I can probably see how to change that.

    Edit: I moved the BF Community to slot 2 on the Forum Jump.

    All you ever do now is come here, go to the asylum, post like everything around here is a joke, and expect people to believe you. Then when people tell you otherwise, you don't believe them and you pass on something that makes that person look stupid, in an attempt to hide your own petty ignorance. It is getting dumb and nobody in staff really wants to listen to you.

    This is also great coming from the guy who should still be permabanned for posting porn, had extremely crappy Wc3 discussions (over a measly staff), and one member of a larger picture who has "IDontgiveafuckitis".

    If you don't like the way BF is operating, then provide something extremely useful like Jimbo here has, shut up and don't speak about things you don't know, or leave and don't come back.

    Sorry chris, changed back to how it was.

    The reason Introductions is at the top and announcements are at the bottom is because if you think about it logically, that's exactly how it should work. Guests visiting BF for the first time could care less about the announcements - the first thing we want them to do after they register, is introduce themselves. The announcements are at the bottom so regular members know exactly where to look.

    Owner of Escalatemedia.com taught me that like 2 years ago.

    New users couldn't care less. Not could care less. Not that hard to understand why saying 'could care less' when speaking about something that they don't care about makes people sound like idiots. And it's not just you, theres dozens of times I've seen people do it on this site.

    Also, the whole design and layout is godaweful in it's current state. Whoever took over as project manager needs some serious headwork if they think have it look like this is so good. It was FINE how it was before you guys started messing with it, because theres a half inch bufferzone on both the top and bottom of the forum name under the 40 main forums we have now. There's sub forums for a reason, and when you had the Diablo / SC / WC sections all lumped into 1 general "Blizzard Games" section, it looked infinitely times better than it does now.

    I could argue that. Forum Introductions do come first, yes. But you can put site news after that and start the real discussions like other boards and shit.

    Because site news should take precendence over everything when it comes to existing members.

    I don't understand why they can't be in the same section. They both could fall under "General," and News/Announcements could be at the very top with Introductions under it. Problem solved, crisis averted.

    He just thinks that introductions supercede Announcements. This is because another guy seemed to do it that way, and it worked out.

    I don't think it really matters. But often news/announcemnts should be somewhere near the top, before all the real discussion threads.

    Lol, nothing like memorabilia to remember the old seasons of a great show.

    Keyword is WAS.

    I tried, but Authoritah Admin here changed it back based on his beliefs ;).
