    This place is dead these days. I only really log on in the hope that something has changed.

    I think more than anything we are in need of a new generation. The forums have been in a steady decline since 2007. It is rock bottom at the moment.

    New gen and forum refresh = new users and more posting.

    Just saying, something has to happen.
    i'm confused.

    Cuguy has done a hell of a lot for the forums

    granted as Community Manager he should be more active, but he ain't no robot... if he needs a little time for real world matters then he should be given it. More to the point, im sure he would surrender the position if he felt he could no longer provide for the community.

    What good would it do to promote someone else to take Cuguy's place when the person he's supposed to keep in contact with hasn't logged into the site for several weeks now? And what makes you think anyone will just be handed the position of community manager without working their way up the ranks first?

    And you're kidding with Rad - not that he's a bad guy or anything - but he's mentioned countless times that he's posting from his PS3 browser and can't really get anything to work so what would he be able to do?

    F34R, correct me if I'm wrong, never actually reached admin status so the same would apply to him.

    It's nothing personal but a coup d'état is ridiculous. Even if Cuguy suddenly dropped off the face of the planet, there are others, like Ixion, who could take his place as community manager. And even then, you would still need Mr. Bishop around to relay these ideas back and forth with.
    I now post on my awesome and amazing IE browser on my 360 and everything works. But Silver was actually just messing around anyway. And I agree that person needs to work up through the ranks before they earn something like that.

    Thanks...if you don't know that i'm never serious by now then somethings wrong.


    Remember that i'm going to die is the best way I know to avoid trap of thinking you have something to lose, you're already naked, there's no reason not to follow your heart.

    F34R being given joint CM role still gets Ghost's Seal of Approval, regardless of how far he worked up the ladder back in the day.

    What an honor!.

    I say elect, Silver_Knight as CM. He'd set this place straight!.. To hell!.

    But seriously this place has been doing worse and worse. I blame the technical issues these forums are getting.

    what the hell!?

    the $#@! do you guys do here to claim this forum is so bad? i come here to read peoples opinions; to see views different from my own. And once in a while, have a laugh. to that end this forum serves its purpose and more. we have an amazing DS section, photography section, multiplatform section etc few forums on the web provide so much!

    by definition this place is a place of discussion, if there is fault it should lie with its members first and foremost!

    as for bugs, lol don't make me laugh. i use these forums just fine.

    p.s, [A disclaimer as is needed on PSU] don't take this as me saying this site is perfection reincarnate. it has its issues, but it serves its purpose as a forum.
    my issues lie with the main site primarily.

    This place has a unique community and the potential to be a more dynamic and interesting place than just a place to share opinions (and by the way I fully agree with what you're saying). I think that's why people are wanting change.

    I dont think that having a secound head of the forum will fix most issues, however it would be still better than only having one.

    I never said that. I know Cuguy has done an enormous amount of good for the forums. But whats the harm of having two CMs?

    balance.

    if you want to have more than one CM the most logical number is 3. imbalance at the top is even worse than a sporadic visiting single CM. 3 CM's would be a bit much.
    both CM's would need to 'ok' decisions, or even worse they would start undermining each other.

    but as i say, Coma stepped down. im sure Cuguy would step down too if he felt the need.

    besides, isn't this why we have the admins?

    Cuguy is the best this place has had, and will remain the best. He has just been busy lately. But he listens more than any ADMIN ever. He is good to go. No replacement or addition needed.

    I know some of the back story, but the past is not important, what is important is the present and the future! We need someone else to help fill in the gaps while Cuguy attends to the real life issues and F34R is easily the best candidate. Whatever happened back then needs to be left back then and we need to move forward.

    Coma didn't step down. He was forced down, and rage quit because of it. He was forced down because Cuguy did not like having to get the okay from him to do stuff.

    Balance can sometimes disrupt the peace.

    Concerning Cuguy absence. His personal problems last for 4 months already. I dont think that personal problems cant get solved in a such big time period.

    To be honest, I think things are stale right now because the PS3 is stale. There is damn near nothing to talk about. That is what forums are for. The members make the threads, and the members discuss. That is what a forum is for.

    You guys are crazy if you think adding some sub forums or changing a few things around is going to boost this forum back to what it was a few years ago. Want the forum to bounce back? Release the PS4.

    The main problem of the forum is not its activity. Its the activity of a certain and important member. The technical aspects of the forum is the main big problem, not the forums activity as its decent and will only grow further.
