If you look closely (closer now) you'll notice we have a new forum setup. Rather than spread topics over 3 forums (The Dollhouse, General Discussion, and Games Games Games) we've decided it's easier for everyone involved to check one forum for everything. This forum will encompass introductions, general topics, and game discussions. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

people didn't use the other forums enough to warrant keeping them. **shrug**

New Forums= Welcome to the suck

01-03-2006, 06:26 PM
Well, atleast it makes the main forum area more uniform and systematic...the system being that it seperates the different Frag Doll groups. this makes me wonder, will there be any more teams to add to the family? Maybe FD Korea or Japan? Maybe FD Brazil? Hmm?

01-03-2006, 06:27 PM
Good idea. Change is good. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Hey I like it, so there's just Dollhouse and UK Dollhouse. Makes sense http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

There will be a FDFR, but i don't know if they'll be using the ubi.com forums because of the language barrier.

01-03-2006, 06:51 PM
Isn't this what the initial FD forum setup was?

Jinx FD
01-03-2006, 06:52 PM
yes. then lots of people posted so we expanded. now lots of people don't post so we condensed.

01-03-2006, 06:53 PM
The only thing I don't really like about it is the number of sticky posts at the top now but I can definitely live with it.

01-03-2006, 07:12 PM
Oh god does this ever feel weird. It's like back in the old days. I remember, when it used to be this way.

actually, i agree with that....a couple of those stickys don't really even belong where there at, at least not anymore.

Don't mind me though....I just work here...uhhh I mean hang out here.

the "old days" only had a single forum. maybe it was just called general discussion instead.

01-03-2006, 07:29 PM
Yes the old days... Some things were cooler back then and others bad.

So far this is just kinda...well...ummm...poor... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-indifferent.gif

01-03-2006, 07:31 PM
Yeah, to me there was alot of kool threads still. Now you have to goto page 3 just to find them http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Ok I'm done whining....

01-03-2006, 07:59 PM
Just get used to this. Fortunately for me I only started posting here recently so I won't have to get used to anything..

I rock..

01-03-2006, 08:09 PM

There was a reason though, why they divided the areas in the first place. Which leads me to believe they did this to make things look more active again. Probably because, things have been so dead over the last few months.

01-03-2006, 08:10 PM
I have my thoughts on that to magiz....

*sits in reservation*

01-03-2006, 08:16 PM
I really like this. It helps eliminate redundancy in threads(only 1 thread on Animal Crossing DS! Yay!) and maybe helps the obscure games I'm interested in get a bit more attention.

01-03-2006, 09:19 PM
I have mixed feelings on this, but that's life for you.

On the positive side, less thread redundancy. On the negative side, now I have to trudge through topics I don't care about. I'm optimistic but ambivilant. Good and bad. We'll see how I feel as time passes.

01-03-2006, 09:56 PM
This is great because you dont have to check three freakin sections, which isnt as bad as some forums that have like 20.

01-03-2006, 10:37 PM
Hehe, I feel your pain Magius =)

It's the cr@p. It's so much easier when it's organized. Now it's like afjlr3wf@E4Laf

that is the most ridiculous thing i have ever heard. I DEMAND SOME ORGANIZATION PLEASE. Everything being in one forum is absolutly ridiculous and i thought we all agreed about that when we did creat different sections. Seriously, put them back and create new areas while ur at it please hehe.

I think we should have:
Introduce Yourself
Graphics Showcase
and different Platforms

at the time we agreed on more forums there were more people posting. there is no need for 2 extraneous forums that got 50 posts per week, let alone 5+ extraneous forums that no one will ever visit.

01-04-2006, 10:29 AM
It will change once summer is upon us. Most of us have lives, work and people to tend to as well Jinx dear http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

our highest level of activity is when people are at work.

Desk Jobs and paperwork are always a bore. Gotta keep yourself awake someway Lol! (Besides thowing paperballs in the waste bin.)

01-04-2006, 10:55 AM
It does feel a bit cramped, but I think that's mostly due to all the sticky topics at the top. Half the page is taken up by them.

Having a seperate forum with all the blog discussions, announcements, rules, etc might be a good idea. Adjust the rules so that only the Fragdolls can create topics but others can still reply and you're golden. =)

That way the blog discussions are easier to find and things aren't so cramped with stickies. =)

It's sad I would laugh at this, but it's totally something I would say.

01-04-2006, 03:47 PM
I like the new set-up. 3 forums, only one of which was primarily used was kinda overkill. Ya'all should back up Jinx on this, she is the one that puts the lion effort in on keeping these forums a nice place to visit.

01-04-2006, 03:59 PM
I did find that when there wasn't enough time to check all three forums, i'd always go to the general discussion one. Also I don't think I visited the games section more than once a month...

I do not come here often enough anymore to really have a say- I do like Valk's suggestion but I realize that with the low level of posting it may be a bit infeasible. I always like art showcase forums http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I like the new forums. Instead of having to visit three different forums to see that there are no good threads worth posting in, now I only have to visit one.
