Has everyone sodded off to the GU forums then? I mean, this place was quiet enough to begin with, now it's practically dead.

Also, not a single new article for months now, even though Hairy said (iirc) that he was still accepting new stuff. Everyone just given up then? :(

GU has a terrible forum, methinks everyone's just gone to EG.

I think people are just busy with the real world at the minute.

The GU forum isn't the nicest to use.

Speaking of the real world, I really should be starting my Journalism coursework. First of all, I need to contact the IFA. >_>

I did join GU, but haven't been there. Haven't gone back to EG either.

I'm still around, GU has a horrible forum setup and I can't live with the black background on sites that are focused on the writing.

I just haven't had much 'worth' saying recently and I should be busy with assignments.

My missus has gone back to work after a year off on maternity leave, so I've been a bit busy.

I still pop in here daily but it is quieter recently. I login to the GU forums now and then but it 's not the nicest layout to use which puts me off . I just haven't had anything worth writing about either or i'd send stuff in. I spend most of my time on EG and checking if anything's going on here.

Yeah, it has gone a bit dormant recently. This is the only forum I visit anymore, I just don't have the time for others. I hope this place picks up a bit again though.

Anyone seen peej by the way?

Someone asked on EG the other day and the thoughts as far as i remember were either he's on holiday or his missus is expecting a baby soon.

I think. :)

I can imagine impending fatherhood being rather time consuming.

So where do other people go, if it's not GU, which is too dark for me at the moment. And EG, not something I want to change back to wholly.

I wonder how Hairy is getting on over at GU.

It is a shame, just when it looked like this forum (and website) was finally clicking into gear. I've only had a brief look at GU, saw some of the regs there but I really couldn't be bothered to sign up to another forum. Plus it's a bit hideous, as you've all said. ;)

Nice to know that people haven't abandoned this place though. No reason why it can't still thrive, particularly with the web address change. Is Hairy even around now? I'm hoping that we see more on the article front too, if possible - I haven't tried writing anything myself as I didn't think there would be any point!

I've resorted to lurking at EG and reading videogaming247 when I'm allowed access to gaming sites.

Hey guys, I'm as gutted as you are about this place turning into a bit of a deadzone. Kay is correct in remembering that I said the site is still open to new submissions and that very much still stands, I just haven't actually bloody had any!

If anyone wants to add to the site regularly then they are very much welcome and if they email me at hairyarse at gmail.com I'll give them CMS access.

As for this forum, I'm always still around though don't get time to post much and I'm also still paying to keep this going. I do still have big plans for the site though god knows when I'll find the time to implement them. I've just been so busy with the new job.

/waves at Harry

Peej is doing fine by the way guys, he's writing with me for Totally (totally360.com, totallyps3.com and totallywii.com, he's mainly doing 360, I'm mainly doing the other two) amongst other things. We do have a forum on there if you wanted to drop by and say hi, unfortunately it's a forum for each site at the moment, but they're working on getting it to be one site for all of the consoles (which is much more sensible) and therefore one forum.

I'll let him know tonight that some of you were asking after him though, if he hasn't already seen this thread (I'm sure he still comes here).

Shame the forum has gone a bit quieter, I just assumed most people had moved off to other places. Good to see I'm not the only one that's been here but not really having a lot to say. I've been so busy recently writing for a number of sites (threespeech asked me to write an article for them this week, which was great fun), that it's left little time free for posting on a forum, here or anywhere else.

I'm still kicking about. Writing for GU (when they can be bothered to publish my frickin' reviews! :) and for the Totally network. Despite fatherhood I've been using my paternity leave well, and playing a metric fucktonne of games while my little girl snoozes her head off all day (and stays awake all night).

Good to know this place is still alive (cue cake) and that a few of you still come here to escape the maelstrom of EG

Haven't posted here much for a while and I'm mostly lurking on EG, though posting a little most days.

Mainly due to stuff sucking a bit right now. My girl was one of the things going well for me but now we've hit problems, uni is also utter shite!

Still here. Still love all of you guys. I do check GU probably slightly more regularly than here (and EG maybe just as often, but for much shorter periods thanks to ditching the main forum. I highly recommend it, although I can possibly still see the appeal if you mainly post during work hours), now, in a sort of vicious cycle of "this place is less busy, so I post less, which adds some part to this place getting less busy", but the main thing is that having just started up new jobs I was a) damn busy (NCAA tourney, NHL and NBA seasons coming to a head, MLB starting, getting into the swing of things with GU) and b) short of liquid funds for a few weeks and hence hadn't been playing any new games. ^_^ Also working nights for the first time ever, so have been taking some time to adjust to my new schedule.

So I might be posting more, again, now, but hopefully far less bloggy than this one.

Great stuff.

And I know I'm a bit late but I haven't really said congratulations to Peej... so yeah, if you're reading this, congratulations! Good to see you're still finding time to play games and write stuff.

I still visit here every day. I've never been much of a prolific poster so you'd never be aware of my presence ;-)

I still read the EG forum purely for the entertainment value; never bothered with GU though.

We will all have to stop lurking and start posting :-)

I always thought this place was much (and I realise in saying this that my manliness might be called into question)cosier and relaxed than any other forum I know.
