    The problem is the psu forum section is seperate from everything else. You go to ps3 games and bam all the games stuff you need from everywhere. go to psu section. Just stuff posted by psu.

    Yeah, gotta get what Tut and I explained put into place properly. Like he said, we talked about this a couple years ago at best, and it was basically ignored. The new bot was put into place instead and it doesn't jive really well with the forums.

    I don't get how that is a "problem" so to speak.

    It is a place to capture and summarize the PSU news and content all in one, OR, let it get muddled and lost in the other sections.

    That is my view. Who knows, it might work out better your way, but that is up to the content team since they will be doing the posting.

    Just an fyi - we turned the bot off this morning and the writers have been instructed to post original content in their respective forums to get the community engaged.

    Honestly, guys, we need you all to be PSU soldiers. This business of the homepage and forums being enemies, or completely foreign absolutely has to end today. Work with me, guys. Rob and I talk about this stuff all the time and we are genuinely trying to get this thing working. Do you want forum threads on the homepage? Do you want the homepage to serve as the hub (so to speak) for the community?

    We're going to try to hide that PSU.com forum for now and get original content inside the forums where it belongs. But we need your help moving forward. Spread the word about our original content. If you noticed, we are responsive if you guys don't like something. We are experimenting to try to get this thing moving, so we're all about working with you to make your site bigger and better.

    The thing is you need to compel me to go there. And I have no reason to. If we could choose to hide/show entire sections of the forum it would be the first one to go for me. I prefer my stuff all in one place. Yeah some things get lost but I get 99% of what i need. I get most of my gaming news from reddit now because bits pop up on my home page.


    EDIT: just remembered you can minimise sections.

    I am not trying to stir anything up, but I do think the home page posts news late. Many times I see the news posted by members well before it reaches the home page. Sometimes hours later, and sometimes days later.

    This is a great first step. One question though. What if a member posts the same story before you guys? Will you simply post the PSU article in the thread? Should we have multiple threads? Should the staff merge the threads and put the PSU article in the OP?

    Merging is fine, if you guys are into that. It'll probably take some time for us to get used to the process, but it would be great to have the PSU as the OP article.

    That's the problem though. I'm not sure how to put a new post as the OP. I'll look into it, or maybe someone can help me out.

    So I'm guessing we would just have to edit the OP and put the PSU article in there, as well as making a new post and letting everyone know the PSU article has been added.

    We cannot insert a post before others. Each post, like each thread, has a numerical designation. We can't override that. Best we can do is make a new thread with the PSU stuff as OP, then copy the other posts into that thread with a merge.

    Or if a PSU one already exists, do a merge with the PSU one as the parent forum

    What about adding tags to your articles and make those news post automatically in the forums? That way, we don't have to find a way to share other news from other sites and post them here.

    Say, you tag an article with the Vita tag and that article is automatically posted in the Vita section. Is that even feasible?

    From my experience as PSU.com's newest writer, we absolutely work our asses off bringing you guys coverage as early and as exclusive as possible.

    Take my Borderlands 2 coverage that went live this morning. Acquiring that information was an exhausting three day trip that left me up running on fumes at 4 AM typing my impressions and news posts.

    For all that work, much of which is brand-new "scoop" information that went live as soon as the embargo lifted, we're getting s*** for hits on aggregate sites like N4G, and even on our own page. It's depressing at best, and disheartening at worst.

    I'm not gonna go back and link to all of them, but I can say from firsthand experience that a great deal of my news posts in the last few weeks have been the first of their kind from a site our size.

    The problem with visibility, networking, and mutual support is why we're coming to you, the community, for help. We want to build the best possible site for you, but if current trends continue, that may well become very very difficult.

    My immense thanks goes out to forum members and PSU readers who already do a great deal to support our work and share it with others. You know who you are, and your readership is more of a blessing than you know.

    While the title would change to what we want, the OP will still be the member's OP. So I guess we'll just have to live with the PSU article not being in the OP for those cases.

    Unless the staff edits it in, which would be a little messy, but it's the only solution I can think of.

    Macrumors let's the original person posting about the subject keep the thread but it's moved to their news section in the forum. Their article on the subject is then posted in the thread. Most of the time, obviously, they are first to post about it and the bot create the thread though. If somebody makes a thread on that news after the news thread has been designated they merge them more often than not. This is ideal in my world.
    Other opinions are available.

    So not to make things too completely messy... but we're even toying with the idea of making this whole process work in reverse. What i mean here is forum posts that are popular, tagged, or something along those lines (still figuring it out) will also get posted to the homepage as an article. That means if we have a really great debate going on in the forums, it will be on the homepage, or even those of you that like posting breaking news can get that info on the homepage.

    The way I see it, and please speak up if this puts you off, the homepage should almost serve as the "hub" for PSU--forums and content. Picture coming to PSU.com, landing on the homepage, seeing the absolute newest news on the web, the most popular user discussions of the day, the most popular games of the day featured with latest screens and videos, and the most popular/newest user-generated and staff-created content all in one accessible place.

    I know right now this sounds complicated, and it definitely is, but I think this is likely the direction we should take the homepage.

    1. I never read the front page I go directly to the forum
    2. In the past the forum post in the news section that "links" to the article is always incomplete
    3. It never directly links to the article
    4. Using the comments sction to discuss is counter productive its why there exists a discussion forum
    5. Logging into the forum doesnt log in to the front page and passwords are not remembered

    I've always thought of this place as place to chill and talk about games and all. Most of the head news I see in the forums side I didn't find interesting because it was automated and showed half of the article. I admit I'm part of the people who post threads and link em to other sites because you didn't report on it or you posted it late. Just my 2 cents in this
