I think I realise now what

I think I'm only realising now what the new format is about, and I'm not too sure if I prefer it. It is akin to having the start of a thread heavily moderated.

I'm keeping an open mind of course, and the forum is still there. This is also in keeping with the original vision of AA being article led too I suppose.

At the Old AA Site

Quiet is an understatement...it was kind of scary over there...almost like a deserted town...

Blog Rules

When do you think you'll have the rules for submitting Blogs ready for us to see?

Forums and Blogs

Well, admittedly, things were quiet over there anyway. They're still there though and fully accessible via the Armchair Arcade Classic link on top. If you don't like blogs, then definitely utilize our forums here. Hopefully each will play a good role in the new AA.

Nice to see that Matt is

Nice to see that Matt is back. I will say I prefer an online discussion forum to blogging myself. It's a shame that the old forum could not be reused here some way.

Blogs

Got it. No blogs just yet.

Will stick to the Forums for now.

Cheers

Blogs

New blog posts do go into moderation first. We haven't established guidelines yet to handle user-submitted blog posts yet, but I'm guessing we will limit them to current news items and such pertinent to games (especially retro) and computing. Perhaps you'd like to submit a review of one of the games you're playing?

Also--don't forget, there are forums here. Just click on the "Forums" button! This would be a great place to chat with the rest of the board members about general topics.

Submitting Blogs

Tried to submit a blog and not if it worked or not. Are you holding them for review first or should they be visible once they are initially submitted or posted?

Do you see "my account" on

Do you see "my account" on the left hand menu? That should get you all the settings you'll need.

Also, we're trying to downplay the forums and keep discussions to the blogs. You should have your own blogs as well. Great content can get promoted to the front page. In any case, the forums are there as an option. And yes, we'll add more forum categories if they're warranted. Hopefully the shift in paradigm though will get everyone more into the blog mentality than a forum one, but we'll see how things go.
