This is a fully fledged forum.  You can toggle the editor both overtop of the editor itself, and change whether it displays by default in your Profile settings.  This post will be updated soon with more information on the new things on the site.

GG Weekly

Primarily the same, but is open to the public and there's no image upload.  Only moderators can delete.

Forum

Obviously, this is the forum.  Currently there is only General Discussion, but this can be expanded at any time.  You can vote up and down posts.  Default user settings hides any posts that are -5 or lower.  Voting up the initial post votes up the topic itself.

There is now an emoticon button on the editor, which was requested a LONG time ago.  The smileys are all custom made by me!

Press Room

This is the podcast.  We need more participation people!

Profile

Be absolutely sure to check out your user page.  It contains all the aggregate content with blogs and so forth.  The dropdown menu is where you can change various settings.  Your user settings now include how many forum posts per page as well as the bury limit for how many votedowns are required to hide a post.

Actions

Whenever you're going to write something, this is the menu from which to do it.  PMs, blogs, reviews, articles are all through here.

Search

The search function is much improved, with full text searches meaning it works just like an actual search engine.

Voting system seems a little weird.

What about article editing? Only moderators can do that? Because in the past there has been a general need to go back and edit things, spelling, grammar, excessive swearing, wrong colour codes, repeated stories etc?

I'm not sure about the full page width display. I use widescreen laptops mostly so it looks a little ungainly on my monitors. A couple of inches of border on each side would be cool. Happy

You should pretty up the place Yo, do a nice banner and maybe hunt down some pics of newsie stories and drape the place in pics of presses, stalls etc. Maybe think about a logo and all that jazz.

Can we get a nice blogs page which displays blogs from all users showing the latest from each user? Maybe have a voting star system so if a blog gets 5 stars we know its worth checking out?

-Ah, that was just an oversight. Editing for all!
-Full-width was planned from the start for widescreen 0_o
-Not sure what you have in mind
-Check your profile page!!

Nice on blogs Yo. Profile page is a little messy. Not sure what can be done to clean it up. Maybe its because I'm on a laptop with the resolution lowered for my bad eyesighted relative.

It needs to be perhaps more empty, more clean, have usernames stand out in different colours or something. Change the font. All I see is oversized Times new roman which is stretched across a 22" widescreen. So it's quite confusing for me to look at.

Because you lack the testicular mass to achieve such an impressive feat, honey badger.
