Announcing comment badges! (And a few other changes)

Posted on March 21, 2011

You may have noticed a few changes to the comment section. One of the biggest things is that we’ve turned off comment nesting. Nesting is handy to easily see who’s replying to whom, but with the kind of passionate debate we get here, comments eventually end up scrunched to the right and hard to read. You can still reply to comments, and when you do, there will be a little “reply to John Smith” link at the bottom of your comment. We hope this will make things easier to read.

We’ve also added badges on comments. Right now, the bulk of you will have the controller badge. Staff members have our lovely Doris, and friends of the site have sammiches. Trolls, on the other hand, will be marked as such, and we’ve grayed out their comment text. You can still read it if you want, but we wanted to reduce their impact on the site. These badges will be handed out at our discretion; please don’t try to ask for them for yourselves or for others.

We’re still exploring what we can do with the badge system, so stay tuned for future awesome. If you have any questions about the comment system, we’ve helpfully provided a discussion area right below!

Do you have a pricelist?

Our submitter took this picture a long time ago and unfortunately didn’t capture the gamertag. It’s too bad, maybe someone else could have taken them up on the offer.

Good game!

Posted on March 20, 2011

When confronted with good sportsmanship, fermunda chzz38 reciprocates by providing sincere advice and offers of future mentoring.

I got this series of messages after sending a message to this kid saying “good game!”.

I replied, “Haha, you’re so cool, dude,” and he replied with the second message.

I sarcastically replied that I was a “12-year old boy, obviously, because girls don’t play video games.” I’m pretty sure he thought I was serious.

I Guess He Thinks I’m Sexy?

furbswad isn’t at all discreet about his intentions. Too bad he didn’t read the book “How NOT to be a creeper 101″.

FightingNote wasn’t happy about his friend request being ignored. At all.
