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.

Display Name History is back

After a very long wait, the Display Name history is back! I had to manually edit a third party plugin to work with our theme, but it works! When you're visiting someone's profile, you'll see the "Display Name History" box on the bottom left of their profile, below recent visitors.

Changes to warning system and more!

A couple weeks ago we asked you guys to provide feedback on the forum and the way things were going. Thanks to everyone who sent your feedback. We read them over and talked as a team about the changes we want to make going forward. A suggestion we saw multiple times was that the tour section was a bit unwieldy. We all agreed, and decided to move past tour dates from the RevRad tour into their own subforum. That way when you visit the tour section, you're greeted by the next show that's comi

Changing your display name

The mod team has decided to allow members to change their display name once per year. You can now change your username in your settings without having to PM an admin to do it. This option is open to all members, but please remember you can only change it once. Be sure to pick something you're going to be happy with for a long time, and be sure you don't make any typos. Let us know if you have any questions or problems. If you see a member ask how to change their name, be sure to let them

Ham Pascale has been promoted to GDA Staff!

I'm excited to announce that Ham Pascale has been promoted to GDA Staff! They'll be joining us along side Andres, Lone, Todd, Matt, and I to keep the tour section on GDA updated and as detailed as possible. Anyone who is active in the download forum knows how skilled they are at finding new information for old shows, so please help me in welcoming them to the team. Welcome Ham! Can't wait for all the amazing work you'll do.

Online Status, Topic Stats, and Preview Post

Lone and I worked on enabling three new features tonight.   Online Status We've added little indicators next to a users name that shows whether or not the user is online or not. You'll now see a green lightning bolt if someone is around, a grey icon if they're offline. (The default was a circle, we liked the lightning bolt because it reminded us of Warning)            Topic Stats We found a plugin for one of the most requested things missing since the last upgra

Matt (monkeyman) has been repromoted to media mod!

For those of you who don't know, Matt (monkeyman) was one of the original media mods before he left in 2010 and I took over. Ever since the download section had been redone, he's been working along side me to help get everything uploaded. Because he has such a amazing collection and knowledge on the downloads, as well as spending his time, we have decided to repromote him to media mod. Matt is 22 years old, currently a uni student and reigns from down under as well as me. I really can't

Forum will be offline Monday for upgrades

I have to upgrade the forum software, so I'll be doing that tomorrow. The forum will be offline starting at 1pm EST for 1-3 hours depending on how much work needs to be done. You guys can follow the forum on twitter @GDCforum for progress during the update. As some of you noticed, I did the change in the middle of the night. There will be some errors until I have a chance to make one more upgrade, but it'll have to wait till tomorrow.

New "Contact Methods" & Changed Profiles

We've decided to make a few changes to profiles and contact methods to make more sense. When you view a profile you will now see four categories. The first is "About Me" which will have whatever you've decided to write about yourself. Under that you will see "Community Stats" which has your member group, active posts, profile views and member title. Then you will "Personal Information" which has your name, gender, location, age and birthday. Lastly is "Contact Information", which has now be

Video & Audio and Pictures removed from Other Artists

Due to the inactivity of Video & Audio and Picture forums in Other Artists, we have decided to go ahead and remove both subforums. Both forums only have a few topics that are fairly active as well as they have not been looked after in many years causing it to be a complete mess with duplicate threads and threads that aren't suppose to be there. From this day forward, if you wish to request/post in audio, video, or pictures from an artist, you can do so in their respective thread in O
