Jeez, thanks! I’m doing what I can and Tom is kind enough to let me basically have carte blanche to report on the stories I find interesting. Obviously, we could just go the full Reddit route and just aggregate everything, but we really like to focus on just a few stories a day.
Plus one. Whether you present the gaming news straight up or you editorialize a bit, it’s usually funny, cogent and interesting. It’s so much better than that year when the front page wasn’t updated at all, not even the Royal Tenenbaums banner ad.
Agreed. One question, if i have an account in the forums can i comment on the front page? I just ask as i had a weird experience with RPS where my forum account didn’t work for comments on their front page articles. Maybe this is normal even?
Zak, the comments section on the front page uses Disqus. This forum uses vBulletin. They aren’t at all connected. However, note that you don’t have to register to comment on Disqus. You can just comment as a guest. Registering makes it easier, of course, but folks are also welcome to chime in anonymously. As you’ll see in some of the comments for the reviews. :)
And it goes without saying that I, too, think Nick is doing a hell of a job. I’ve always appreciated his contribution to the forum, and I’m grateful that he’s lending it to the front page as well.
And as I’ve learned, one advantage to the easy registration for Disqus is that you can get email notification if there’s a reply to your comment (if you so desire) so you don’t have to keep checking it at the site.
