Forums Re-organized (again)

We've re-organized the forum once again. This change creates a new "Interests" category and moves Clubs back to the main page as part of that new category, puts Brink and Musicians under a new 'Creativity' subforum, and moves Movies, TV, Books and "Other Artists" into a new subforum called "Entertainment".    We've also decided to remove Shenanigans. We didn't feel that most topics were used often and didn't really feel like they were adding much at this point. So we've taken two of the most pop

GDC will be offline overnight

We need to move GDC over to a new server. I had planned on moving it over on August 12th, but with the announcement of the new single decided it needs to happen sooner. I'm looking to move it over tonight. I'll have to turn the site Offline while the transfer is happening. Once complete, it'll take an additional 1-12 hours for the site to come back online for everyone (basically however long it takes for the domain to point over to the new server).  I'm expecting to bring the site offline a

Help out GDC

It's been a while since we've asked for financial help from you guys. While August was a great month for ad revenue, we won't see any of that money till at least October and November. In the meantime, we have our server bills coming up (we haven't had to pay anything for a few months now because our old host got bought by another company and they forced us to switched servers, so they gave us a couple months of free hosting during the summer).  If you can help please click the Donate button

Help us raise $150 for server maintenance

As you guys know we've been having some serious issues with the server lately. Last week we had to hire a professional server administrator take a look to see what was going on. It ended up costing us $150 to have him optimize the server and try to figure out why we've been having so many issues. It was definitely worth the cost, but $150 is a lot considering we already pay nearly $200/month just to keep the forum online. So I thought I'd ask the community for help. If you can donate a few bu

Help us pay the forum license costs

Our license renewal is up for the forum, blogs and chat room. All together they cost $100 to renew. I'm hoping those of you who can might help us pay for this license renewal to keep everything online (the chat is already offline because of this). Any small amount will make it easier for us to pay it. You donate securely via PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account you can use a regular debit/credit card and PayPal will process it. EDIT: We've reached the $100 goal we needed. T

We want your (anonymous) feedback.

The mod team is interested in hearing your feedback about GDC and the mod team. We want you guys to be completely honest and up-front with us, so we're taking this survey anonymously here http://gda.polldaddy.com/s/gdc2013 There are only 3 questions. Please be constructive with any criticism you have. The entire team will be reading these over to see how we can improve GDC and improve how we run the forum. Thanks!

When do mods close threads?

The mod team has often closed threads based on our individual judgments, basically "if we don't think it should be open, we can close it." We decided that this left way too much room for disagreement between the mod team about what should and shouldn't be closed. We've agreed to all follow the below criteria for closing a thread and we want to make sure you guys know when we will. #1: Duplicate thread: Another similar thread already exists and is moderately active. #2: Spam thread: We a

Help GDC with a donation

Hey guys, I'm looking to raise about $500 for both GDA and GDC to help with some expenses and to do some new stuff. The most important thing is just covering a few miscellaneous costs that seem a little out of reach since Green Day went in to hibernation and traffic is down. But I'd also like to use a bit of that money for some contest prizes and a couple new themes for GDC, a Christmas-y one for next month and hopefully a new mobile theme.

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

Introducing the Musicians' Lounge!

We would like to introduce our new forum The Musicians' Lounge. This is where the musicians and lyricists of GDC can come to discuss their music and/or lyrics. The main forum (Musicians' Lounge) is used to ask and discuss general musicianship while the subforums are used to post personal work. For more details, check out this thread. Special shout out to Tom (Not Anyone.) for organizing this awesome new forum. We hope you enjoy using the forum and checking out the amazing work of your fellow

New RevRad theme for GDC

Lone, Bum, and I worked on a new Dark theme for GDC to more closely follow the red, black, and white theme of Revolution Radio. Also, YAY RED AND BLACK AGAIN. This feels more like home. Having wondering flashbacks to the American Idiot era.    So that's about it. Same exact theme as before, just changed out the red with blue, updated the logo, got some sweet new backgrounds.
