Some Opening Day Glitches... But comments are working (we think)

September 25, 2006 -

Okay, we are open for business at the new GamePolitics.

It has been a hectic day here, spent dealing with a number of glitches and we're far from done. But at least we seem to be up and running and still managed to scoop the rest of the game press on the New Mexico nonsense lawsuit.

Specifically, I can't figure out why people weren't able to comment, but I've opened the restrictions that required commenters to be logged in, since logging in seemed to be the issue. So please test out commenting...

Also need to add more of the GP content listed on the sidebar... that's on the way.

Nice Layout Dennis :).

Though I have to agree with some of the others, I am going through withdrawls without my daily dose of the Fourms. I mean how can I use my superpower and link everyone to stories on CNN if there is no fourms?

For every second they are down Jack will file another lawsuite :)

What's a RSS feed?

Whooo! I'm supposed to be paying attention to class right now!

lol, I am supposed to be working right now! Woooooo!

Is that why I haven't been able to access anything but the LJ feed for the last week or so?

Qoute function,plese

Hopefully this gets through okay. Yesterday I had a bit of trouble. I'm ready to hop on...Alley Oop *jumps*!

Awesome new site Dennis.

I much prefer this to having the comments on an alternate board, though I understand that it was necessary for awhile to reduce trolling.

Hope all goes well and the bugs work themselves out!

I like the old site layout better much better in fact, this site well the comments box is too restricted (now a short phrase that used to took half a line now takes 2), the text is kind small and you can't reply to comments. Are all these things temporary?

Hello world!

So, no more screening, right?

Day Two and things seem to be improving. Glad most of you are liking.

Sorry, Father Time - this is the new world order for GP...

We've added a plug-in that lets you Digg /Slashdot / Del.ic.ious any post just before you comment.

Also added a crappy two-click Home link, best I can do for now. Amazing no Wordpress hacker has created that yet, the need is so obvious.

What about the new forums?

GP
it is rather annoying but in time you will learn to tweak it a bit more,hopefully sooner than later.

can't wait to be disappointed with the forums :P


oy I need to start trying to find that silver lining in life...but it keeps burning me 0-o well...that and sun light LOL

Though I do prefer to have this pop up in my LJ friends page, I've dropped your feed into my RSS folder anyway. For anybody that wants to keep the LJ integration, I've created a syndication feed for the GP.com RSS feed at gamepoliticsrss.

yay comments back. but as others have said, I'm going to miss the nesting.

Though one question. Is the site supposed to be this narrow or is there a a problem with my browser? Comments are only showing as about 60 characters across taking up only about a 3rd of the screen width making the entire site difficult to read.

hooray new site!

looks fancy.

I agree with jythie about the lack of used space on the page. All this white space seems like a waste. Overall, the site does look more professional. I only hope that this white space issue is resolved soon.

--shroomofinsanity--:

Actually, I would say it looks less professional, or at least a differnt profession. It looks like the type of site that links to a newspaper and tracks comments to various newspaper articles and such. Which granted might be the right imagry for gamepolitics, to me it seems like trying to emulate hack jobs from companies trying to update their image on the 'blogosphere' or some such.

(also if I recall correctly, exessive whitespace was a marketing/design fad that rears it's head now and then, so perhaps the software simply defaults to that philosphy, or newspapers tend to, who knows)

I don't remember ever getting the "needs validation" message here, and as far as I know, the first time I posted here was today.

MaskedPixelanteNevermind. Turns out when they said "the patch is now live", they meant "it's still in beta".12/19/2014 - 5:07pm

E. Zachary KnightIf you are downloading a copy in order to bypass the DRM, then you are legally in the wrong. Ethically, if you bought the game, it doesn't matter where you download it in the future.12/19/2014 - 12:06pm
InfophileEZK: Certainly better that way, though not foolproof. Makes me think though: does it count as piracy if you download a game you already paid for, just not from the place you paid for it at? Ethically, I'd say no, but legally, probably yes.12/19/2014 - 11:20am
ZippyDSMleeAnd I still spent 200$ in the last month on steam/GOG stuff sales get me nearly every time ><12/19/2014 - 10:55am

MaskedPixelantehttp://www.joystiq.com/2014/12/19/marvel-vs-capcom-origins-leaving-online-storefronts-soon/ Speaking of "last chance to buy", Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is getting delisted from all major storefronts. Behold the wonders of the all digital future.12/19/2014 - 9:59am
MaskedPixelanteSeriously, the so-called "Last Chance" sale was up to 80% off, while this one time only return sale goes for a flat 85% off with a 90% off upgrade if you buy the whole catalogue.12/19/2014 - 9:37am
E. Zachary KnightInfophile, Tha is why I buy only DRM-free games.12/19/2014 - 9:37am
MaskedPixelanteNordic is back on GOG for one weekend only. And at 85% off no less, which is kind of a slap in the face to people who paid more during the "NORDIC IS LEAVING FOREVER BUY NOW OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE" sale, but whatever...12/19/2014 - 9:28am
InfophileRe PHX's link: This is one of the reasons the digital revolution isn't all it's cracked up to be. There's also the flip side where Sony can block access to games you've bought if they ban your account for unrelated reasons. All power is theirs.12/19/2014 - 8:52am

Papa MidnightAh, so it was downtime. I've been seeing post appear in my RSS feed, but I was unable to access GamePolitics today across several ISPs.12/18/2014 - 6:06pm
