There's some interesting story about GameStop from Kotaku.

If that is being truth that's no good. But GameStop is a bit far from my reach.

Steam replaced "Greenlight" with "Steam Direct". Previously community could vote, now devs must pay to be presented in the catalog.

Warner Cable
will be explaining, there's [url=That's like with lost of Google Latitude]lawsuit[/url] that they were deliberately slowing the connection speed. Obviously, the reason were money. (Like in previous two.)

First ten look very believable from my personal experience.

So, at some unlucky countries, like mine, the hour was stolen and it's now Summer Time. I sure hope that this idiocy will stop once. :(

I was staying in hotel and skipped my breakfast because of that lost hour! Hungry Sunday... :disagree:

We still make it to the 22th. We are surely too optimistic or too conformist.

Thinking on moving to New Zealand in a few years, if everything goes ok.

Why New Zealand? It's because of similar weather?

A bit, yes. I sympathized with the place as I read about it, in spite of earthquake hazard at some places. I basically know English, the country is not a crowded one, it's friendly with Brazilians.

So, why is the link to the forum from teh main site just another small text in the Main area?

If you want people to actually come from there to here you should really give it it's own Big Text Header, whoever you are that's in charge nowadays.

There are planned changes in menu (design & struc.), although having on main page just BIG title "Forums", sounds to me like gig. overkill.

It doesn't have to be bigger then the rest, but it should be it's own category.

Like: Main, Forums, Community, Latest Topics;

Hmm, that would mean menu with submenu.

ATM is prepped>

News | Walkthroughs | Downloads | Maps | Forums | Contact Us

I will give it a thought, for Community that would be nifty. Latest topics are already in left column down and in that size they cannot be positioned anywhere in the header.

I enabled top menu for members, let see and comment!

@Galaad
Themes will be revisited globally but I'm waiting for forum upgrade, as current one and a new ones are not compatible. If you say that I should overlook them now I will do. As I use chSilver and don't remember exactly the others look. However I consider chSilver by Robenhagen as the best ;)

Well you're Admin so I guess you chose which you prefer as default/logged out, but IMO it looks like some Ubuntu forum. Also maybe I am too used to the CH colors of the old... I cannot adapt!

What are you exactly changing, Pol? I'm fluffy, I should have a say on that. HOHO
