New Forum Changes are live

If you noticed a lot of the forum posts are showing as updated its because of a large round of purging and migrating.  This is the second round of merges that I've done to try and consolidate topics, but this time around I've added the tracking feature you guys have for games into every forum post.  I'll go over what that means after I explain what forums we changed.

Removing Tournaments and Adding Games

So if you take a look at the top nav bar, I've decided to do away with tournaments.  After looking at the landscape of 2o2p now compared to where it was 6 years ago, the idea of having tournaments within the site probably doesn't make a lot of sense anymore.  Most people play online against people outside of 2o2p. While I've always loved the idea of member tournaments the loss of custom games in most new releases doesn't make the idea very compelling.

2old2play Catastrophic Server Failure

Last night one of the hard drives that housed our database had a Catastrophic failure.  By complete luck I was able to recover from an weekly back-up that I had earlier this week.  I was until about 5am trying to get everything back to normal again.  I'm still not quite sure how far or bad the corruptions spread. For now I know that it knocked out the database completely as well as our email systems.

Few More Fixes and an update

Things have been generally smooth here on the new site.  I've just updated a few more things with the side bar.  Added side bar auto follow as you scroll, added in auto comment posting, changes some text around, put in a new sidebar block and style for blogs, and added an indicator for when a new blog is posted.

Some more Forum Pruning

To keep things tightly compact and spur more discussion around the site, we're going to start cutting even more fat around the forums in terms of how we split the discussion boards.  If you guys remember in V2 we had forums split by platform. This meant PS3 people talking about Call of Duty did so in a different forum than Xbox players.  It made finding relevant topics a nightmare and gave off the impression that there was nothing to talk about.

Fantastic Outlook on Gaming

Jesse Schell, Puzzle Clubhouse Creator and CEO of Schell Games gives his keynote speech at the 2013 D.I.C.E. SUMMIT. Titled "The Secret Mechanisms".

This is totally worth the 20min length (especially when he talks about demos) and really shows that some industry people understand gamers.  There is hope.
