Our forums will be riding off into the sunset tomorrow… Here’s the announcement:
Phase out of Community Forums
Effective November 1st the BrokenJoysticks community forums will no longer be active. We appreciate everyone who took the time to sign up and enjoy during this two month trial run. As a staff we learned quite a bit about what goes into fostering and maintaining a successful community. We feel that at this time the amount of moderation required to keep the forums clean of spam outweighs the benefit.
To those dedicated few who have stayed with us, don’t fret. We will be working on a solution to the problem with a better, upgraded message board to launch sometime in 2013. We want to make sure that the Broken Joysticks forums are easy to use, well maintained and not full of Chinese advertisements.
We will keep them archived and hopefully when it is time to roll out the new forums sometime next year as many accounts and messages will be archived there.
