Forums, we have them: November edition

6:00 PM on 11.01.2009 // Technophile

[Forums, we have them is a monthly recap of all that's gone down in the forums the previous month.]

Here we are again for another edition of FWHT. We had a busy month in the Forums. I've added some new Forum sections, we've got new badges (for a current total of 31, that's all of them in the header pic) and I also have access to the wonderfully industrious community at, which means I've got new toys to play with. Memes were started and cataloged. It's been a heck of a month!

We've got quite a few people over there in the Forums, it's been so busy! Did you know The Bar thread is over 1000 PAGES now? Yeah, GamesAreArt got the first post of page 1000. It's actually at page 1117 as I write this. I know there is a lot more of you that haven't come over and checked us out. For those of you who haven't been over to the Forums yet, find out what you've been missing after the jump.

Let's start with the badges. We've added quite a few this month:

Cblog recapper badge - This one is for those dedicated and hard working cblog recappers that every day work their butts off collecting all the community blogs for easy reading. I think it goes without saying that this badge was long overdue.

Art Attack badge - This one is for those Destructoid community members that have been showcased on Art Attack posts on the front page. Credit goes to Ckarasu and Agent MOO for suggesting it.

Listener Question badge - Now, not only do you get a sweet swag bag for getting your question answered on a Destructoid Podcast, but you also get this cool badge. The art for this badge was done by Necro B.A.B.S.

Double Down badge - Did you double down? Did you document it in pictures or video? Then you get this badge. What's Doubling Down? Take a look here. Credit goes to our very own Topher Cantler who suggested the badge and started all the shenanigans.

If you want a complete and updated run down of all the badges here is the list

Next up, I added a bunch of new sections to the forums.

The Hey Ash, Whatcha Playing and Once Upon a Pixel forums are now together!

Rev Rants and The Videogame Show what I've done both have their own forums now for discussing the latest episodes!

I also added a section for the Unofficial Destructoid Community Podcasts. Failcast, Drunkcast and any other community podcasts can post there to let people know about new episodes, discuss episodes and basically just be awesome. If you have a new community podcast starting up, go ahead and post a new thread there and let people know what your show is about!


Earlier in the month I put out the call to help us out with the Dtoid Meme thread and holy crap did you guys knock it out of the park. Check the first post for an epic list of Dtoid memes both past and present. Thank you!

I also want to thank you guys for voting and discussing Forum skins like I asked last month. You've given me a very clear picture of which themes are being used and which ones could use some improvement. Please keep discussing and suggestion in that thread because it's very helpful feedback for me.

Lastly, I wanted to talk about and how awesome that is. is a community centered around customizing VBulletin forums. Suffice to say, these guys are real good at it and have made the software do some amazing things. I'm always over there looking for helpful hints or new mods to make the Forums as sw33t as possible. So far, I've added an auto resize for picture embeds, code for breadcrumbs at the bottom of the thread (finally) and the ability to directly embed Gametrailers videos. So I strongly suggest that if you see something awesome over there or just think of on your own let me know! and I'll try to find/install a mod for it.

This was a long one this month so...

As always, if you lurk, sign up and post. If you've never been, come check us out. If you post all the time, then keep it up! My private messages are always open and you can send me anything from questions, new banners or just bounce some ideas off me. Don't be shy!

See you next month!

Does anyone know if Advent of Indies is happening this year? I looked it up today and didn't find any updates on their Twitter since January.

I brought that cake I made into work and it disappeared fast. Maybe if I lose my job I can just make a living selling cakes on the end of my street.

My review-in-progress of Just Cause 3: Explosions - good. Grappling hook - good. Flying - good. Driving - an abomination. 8/10.

Well, ugh, this is awkward. A year ago I wrote a cblog about cool indie games coming in 2015, and not a single one of them has been released :/

I was happy to have never spoiled myself the final boss of Splatoon's campaign. That was one of the best boss fights ever and I absolutely love the credits track. So relaxing. [youtube][/youtube]

Today's kids will never know the struggle of putting an encyclopedia on top of an NES Max to auto-buy 99 potions before heading into Terra Cavern

Sometimes, on more dreary days, I make a smiley face with sliced-pickle eyes and bacon grin in my lunch-burger. It fills me up all the same, but I feel a warm sense of accomplishment, achievement and satisfaction on top of it.

When I was a lad, I loved this game something fierce. [img][/img] Anyone else ever play the tie in Small Soldiers games? Maybe it's nostalgia, but I remember them being not too bad.

Finally got my surface pro 3. Holy shit I love this little guy. And Windows 10 is better than I thought.
Putting more effort into iOS game review than African American history book report. This is not what Dr. King died for. Or maybe he did, I wouldn't know because I'm not doing the book report. Wha-hey!!
