Do you use other forums?

Recommended Posts

GTA Forums are the only forums I use, and that made me decide to ask if other people use other forums or are you only using GTAF?

 

Another reason I ask is because I am quite interested in learning of other forums I may decide to use. smile.gif

Just this one for me. I've signed up for a few forums over the years for specific games or subjects, but i never even used the accounts.

Like i said before in another topic, the pace here is great. Active enough to keep you occupied and able to track all your posts and replies. One of the biggest credits to the forum is the fact that the boards aren't spammed with advertizements, I've seen forums who end up with advertizing banners running through the middle of a topic, it does not make for pleasant viewing. Same with the sig size, other forums have signatures sizes that are so huge you can only fit about 2 replies on each page, its mental.

 

This forum just makes sense to me, everything seems to be done right. I like the fact the karma system was removed, i like the idea of official gangs, i like the awards idea. And more importantly, i think the community and staff here are great.

 

Only one suggestion i would ever have, is maybe getting an official member title for some milestones, for example getting a little icon under your avatar when you hit your 1 year joined, 3 years, 5 years ETC. Just to show your loyalty to the board and the fact you've stuck around. That way, its not something people can easily achieve like a post count icon.

I used to visit World of Gothic, which is part of the German World of Players forum-network. The English section of WoG closed down in May due to inactivity, and since I don't know German I had to leave. I didn't do much there; I helped some people with the games, and rarely took part in some off-topic discussions.

 

As of now, this is the only forum I regularly visit. Though I sometimes visit World of Risen (which has an English section), to view; to see if there have been any major announcements from the company.

 

EDIT: In fact, looking there now, four more posts on this forum, and I'll have taken over the the amount of posts I have on that forum (1,010).

Based on my first posts on this very forum it should be easy to determine whether I've been a member on another board before or not. Yeah, GTAF is the only forum I'm part of. I don't know, there's something different about this place and there isn't a better forum out there in my opinion. This place has a great community feel to it; I don't know if I'll bother signing up for another forum unless I'm banned here or something.

everything you said about the forum is probably exactly what brings me back, and you're ideas for milestones to show loyalty to the forum sounds like a great Idea, why don't you suggest it?

Everything you said here is perfect, the community has a great level of activity, you can have a discussion without being lost in the crowd, you can recognize the same members around, but not so little that every topic dies quickly.

The staff are all fair as well, you can have a bit of arguing and a little name calling with being warned, and you can be off topic a bit and it doesn't usually matter, and the mods are all very reasonable, and it's funny watching them f*ck with other members at times haha.

It's also nice and easy to navigate, easy on the eyes as well like you said with a simple design and with plenty of skins.

 

I have used other forums, but this is the best, other forums I either let my account die, or rarely visit.

The Nexus Forum occasionally, MWO Mercs, RS246, Motorgeek, The Register, the British Hillclimb and Sprint Association and Speedhunters. I used to spend a lot of time on Pistonheads but it went downhill for a bit. I might re-register.

I used to be on a forum called Tanki Online forum which had in comparison to GTAForums is incredibly sh*t. At that time I was a bit of a retard so I went about trolling with other people's account but the mods didn't really know it was me, I don't really visit it any more though.

 

GTAForums is the longest forum I've been on, can't believe it's nearly a year since I first registered.

I signed up for somethingawful to read the LP section, I don't post there though. I bought the archives too, but those never get used. confused.gif Also back when I first got into emulation and romhacking I used The Pokemon Community Forums because they have (one of?) the best Pokemon romhacking sections out there. Members there are responsible for hundreds of tools, documents, and games related to Pokemon romhacking. I left because the community unironically wrote "^_^" a lot, and you had to be an established member for anyone to take you seriously. I also lurk two or three other forums that aren't worth mentioning because they're either dying or almost completely abandoned. confused.gif

I've been on quite a few, though at the moment it's just this and the redlynx forums (i.e. Trials evo and Trials fusion). Love me some Trials...

 

Larger places like reddit just have lower quality - especially reddit tounge.gif

The Something Awful Forums. Costs $10 to join. Upgrades include $15 for platinum (gives you access to searching, allows you to report people, and allows PMs), $10 to change your avatar & title ($5 and you can change someone else's avatar & title to whatever you want), $10 for archives of the forums, and $5 for ad-free posting.

 

Now, obviously you don't have to pay to read the forums; only to create an account. However, the forums are censored and missing some sub-forums unless you register. I was on the fence about paying to post in a forum, but honestly, it was one of the best decisions I've made. If anyone remembers Cojawfee, he is a prominent poster there as well. I've been a member there since '05.

 

There's also a lot of fame that came from SA. Things like Slender Man came from there. So did the force-closing of all those pedophile sub-reddits from Reddit. The forums made it on Anderson Cooper 360 with that.

Yes, Neogaf and sportbooksreview forum.

 

On Gaf I´m allowed to say c*nt and f*ck off you little pussy and not be warned. On sportbooksreview forum I can post tits without have a f*cking reminder or a f*cking verbal warning. And GTAf... it´s hard to say, well, trolling Rockstar games is one of my favorite hobbies, it could be the reason why I'm here.
