We could send our tale of trying to keep the community intact to any of the major gaming news sites and generate some hate for Future at the same time.

Jupiter is in your sun sign this week, making it pretty crowded in there, what with Jupiter being the largest of the planets and all.

I was actually thinking the same thing. Surely after a while some will start leaving and others will post less as the novelty wears off.


We just need to uncover the next 'Limbo of the Lost'.

Or appear on the Gadget Show.

We'll turn up in Xbox World's XBW WWW section in the letters page, right Pell? RIGHT?!

That's 29,000 something readers right there.

Had a variety of usernames on GR, most based around the name 'Pan'.

Here, I'm just Pan.

Into ethics, philosophy, politics, revolution, music and debate with Eight.



Don't forget me now Pan !

I have also had a variety of usernames, however I would prefer not to disclose :D

Computers, politics, photography and (of course) a nice bit of religious debate does it for me.

Do it, then. Please. Write to your favourite magazine, websites, wherever - and put the word out, send the link. You have as much right to do it as any other member of the forum and we'll all be grateful for your efforts. I know that a few other forumites are making real efforts to get the word out via other means, so every time someone else gets proactive about this, it just helps the odds of attracting more interest to GRcade...

Obviously advertising in any of Future's magazines wouldn't be allowed.

Evenin' all.

I'm another long time lurker hoping to become more involved in the argum.....discussions. Looking forward to it!

Also, while I'm at it, I'd just like to offer an enormous 'well done' to those of you who managed to get this place up and running so quickly! Phenomenal stuff, and deserving of the success it's clearly going to be. Kudos!

I called off his players' names as they came marching up the steps behind him....All nice guys. They'll finish last. Nice guys. Finish last.

A few letters are being wrote - lots of emails to various gaming blogs/sites have already been sent.
I am also considering sending a Batman Forever Joker type letter to Future Publishing lol

I used to browse GR, posted on there very occasionally as CrushedLikeFruit, never really made an effort to get stuck in there though, hopefully will do here.

Even though this is my first post here, i've been on the old GR for quite some time, with nearly 3000 posts. So, hello to all the new recruits, and welcome. It's safer here.

Hello,

Ive posted about 10 times in 5 years on the GR boards, thats quite a bit of lurking i guess. Ill try and post a bit more on here.

I havent really posted on a forum since the demise of Gamufi which must have been a fair while now...

Good work on the new site.
