For a minute I thought that I was banned from the general discussion forum. Missed it at first. Looks great now!

It'll take a little while to get used to, but it's 100x more organized.

I love you, Creech.

Maybe the "General Off Topic Discussion Boards" should link you to General Off Topic instead of the hub of other forums?

It took about ten seconds to get used to. Looks great!

The only thing I wonder about is if General Entertainment needs to exist at all anymore, it doesn't seem to have too much activity.

Valid point. I put all the other Off Topic boards under General Off Topic and renamed it.

I dropped it to the bottom, and at first glance you are correct, not a lot of activity. I suppose I could go through and move the most recent 100 threads or so to the main off topic forum and delete the rest? Nobody's post count will be affected since it is all off topic anyway. Comments?

Welp. Off-topic is going to be quiet for a few days since people won't know where to find it.

Are you able to put bulletin announcements at the tippity-top of the forum header in vBulletin? You know, a box above the UserCP-FAQ-etc bar for announcements. Then link to this thread?

Alright cool.

I'd leave it the way it is now. Both personal preference and it's nice to be able to go to one spot that's centralized around one discussion.

Me too. I don't really mind change all that much, but this is pretty confusing. Some stuff is obvious, but overall I'm somewhat lost here. I'll reserve judgement on the new layout for now...

It's for sure more organized. It will take me some time to get used to though.

Yep but like any construction, just need to find my way to the bar through a detour.

I like it. There are some things that I couldn't sometimes find before (like Community Gaming) that are now easy to find. My only small problem with it is that we don't get to see as many last posts since the Discussion Board has been lumped together. Most of my posts in the XB1 forum are from when I see a thread there with an interesting title.

Domain name

Couldn't you technically just keep the current domain name but have another one like Xboxoneachievements.org be a redirectory? Or viceverca or something? That way, either way people will end up in the same place ;o

We actually 10 or so addresses that redirect to xbox360achievements.org currently, so it is safe to say we will do something like that with the new URL as well.

I was so confused about the organization at first, but I like it. Everything is way better organized now.
