I have to admit, the forums have not been a major focus of mine while running this site. And it shows...I rarely post on the forums, they aren't designed particularly well, and because of these two factors, the forums don't get used too often.
I had an idea to make the forums something I would use much more often, much easier to use, and hopefully bring in new members to our community, but it would mean shutting down this current version of the forum....I had the idea to redirect these forums to our Steam group here: NextGenWalkthroughs on Steam.
Steam is introducing a lot of new Community features, which is what inspired this idea.
*Much faster and responsive
*More focused discussion (I think there may be too many sub forums on WGG)
*If this Steam group got very large, it would be a great way to promote this site's content and our YouTube channel
*Lose all the old forums threads
*Requires users to make another account/install steam
I'm completely spitballing ideas here. I'd love to hear your thoughts and opinions if you've been a regular forum visitor.
