When I heard there were going to be new forums (And a new site), I actually cringed as I had already lived through the disaster at the PlayStation.com forums in December.
The day of the switch, there were posting errors all over the place, people getting lost, and just plain giving up. There was loads of really negative feedback everywhere. Traffic dropped signicantly, and to think years ago, the place used to have so much traffic, people had a hard time keeping up.
I would like to say, really nice job FUNi. You did a great job with this transition (A way better job than SCEA.), and I would like to thank you for that.
