Raising a little money for upgrade costs

Now that the dust is starting to settle with the upgrade, I'd like to ask for your help in covering some of the costs.  In total the upgrade cost around $150 more than we usually spend on GDC - here's a breakdown of the costs: New theme: $55 Paid Plugins: $46 Mega Account re-activated for downloads: $15 There were some other fees, but since it was my own fuck-up I'm not asking for any help with that. If you help out with more than $5 you'll be put into a special group to disable all GDC ads for

New "Interests" subforum for Clubs, Your Art/Music, and more

We've decided to re-organize a little bit on GDC. As many know, I strongly dislike having a long list of subforums on the index. i think it gets confusing and a bit daunting.  I've always felt the "Community" and "General" subforums were a little mixed. @Amanda gave me the idea of having an "Interests" subforum to put related content together and I really liked that. So we've created a new subforum "Interests" to put all that stuff together, and removed the "General" category. Shenanigans was mo

GDC has been upgraded to 4.0!

Hey everyone, welcome back to GDC. Sorry if you guys felt lost or worried that we'd never come back online. The upgrade finally went through - and this blog is to list a few of the major changes. First off, everything posted after July 18th is lost (PM's, posts, statues, etc.). This is because the failed upgrade Andres attempted last weekend was causing some problems when we tried again, so he had to restore the database to an earlier state and in doing so, lost the most recent data. None-the-le

"On The Road" forum is back and revamped!

As a lot of you noticed the "On The Road" tour forum went missing about a month ago. The reason for this is because we wanted to set it up to be more consistent and actually sorted correctly. From now on each tour will have it's own subforum. In there the shows will be sorted by date from oldest show to the newest show. To help keep consistency, each show will be labelled the same way "Year/Month/Day - Festival name (if applicable), Venue, City, State (for US cities), Country" You'll als

Merging creative subforums together

This idea was proposed by John in this blog, where we talked about what to do with the Musicians subforum, and I'm actually pretty interested in it and would like some feedback from the community. A problem that we have with the creative subforums is that they just simply aren't used much. A handful of people use each section (Brink, Musicians, and Words I Might Have Ate before it was tossed away). I just don't like having subforums that only a small group of people use, that doesn't make se

What to do with "Musicians' Lounge"?

Musicians Lounge just simply isn't working the way we hoped. I'm fairly certain that we're going to just get rid of it all together. It didn't work as "The Underground" when it was called that, and it's not working now. Even when GDC is active, it's still under-utilized and kinda feels like we're just pushing people off to a subforum that's hardly read for the sake of putting it there. Right now there's only a few people that use it regularly. So - let's talk about alternatives. I'm open to

Change in Warning Policy (again)

We have decided to adjust how the warning system works. We are increasing the length each warning lasts to accommodate for the days your account is suspended. We're also lowering the amount of warnings you can get before you're banned. Here is a breakdown of how long suspensions will last with each warning point: 1 warning point: 24 hour suspension. 2 warning points: 48 hour suspension. 3 warning points: 72 hour suspension. 4 warning points: Account will be automatically banned.

Liam has been promoted to admin

It's actually real, it finally happened. Liam sent me enough nudes to finally give him the promotion to admin. Starting today he'll be helping run this place and manage the team. He also re-joined the GDA news team recently and will helping run things over there as well. So begins the process of him slowly kicking me off the team. Congrats Liam! I'm really excited to finally have you help run things instead of just bitching at me for not doing stuff.

Help us pay for the GDC forum license

We have to pay $50 to renew our licence (every 6 months) with Invision. This pays for the forums, blogs, and chat. It's also totally understandable that not everyone can afford to help the sites and that's perfectly fine. Being an active member here is already very appreciated and all we really expect of our members. But if you have $5 and feel like giving us hand, that's appreciated too. UPDATE: We reached the $50 goal. Thanks to everyone who helped! You can help out through PayPal by cl

Green Day News & Chat have been merged

We decided to merge the Green Day News & Green Day Chat subforums. We had originally split them up because we planned on tying GDC and GDA together so we wanted a place to store all the individual stories that we were putting on GDA. We also felt when things were very active it kinda made sense to have everything split up. But I've never been a huge fan of having things too organized, where similar conversations can go in two different places depending on why the topic was made there to begi

Halloween Theme!

We've installed an over-the-top Halloween theme for those of you needing a little more to get you into the holiday spirit. Anyone can switch to it now by clicking "Change Theme" on the bottom left of the forum. We'll make it the default theme on the 31st. And probably take it away from you guys some time after that.
