Let us know how we're doing and how we can improve

We'd like for you guys to take just a few minutes to fill out this quick 4 question survey about GDC. Let us know how you feel about the forum and give us suggestions on ways we can improve and make the forum better for you. http://gda.polldaddy...iew-summer-2012 The surveys are anonymous so we don't know who submit them - so be honest. This is the best way for us to get some real feedback from you guys without anyone feeling worried or pressured about what they're writing. The admin an

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

"Words I Might Have Ate" being closed in favor of blogs.

After some feedback from you guys and discussions with the team, I have decided to close down the "Words I Might Have Ate" forum once again in favor of the blog system. I know it's been shitty asking you guys to go from platform to platform and to keep moving your work from one place to the other - but ultimately something just was never really working out. Blogs will better serve creative writing where people can post their work and get feedback. I think it serves a better purpose tha

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

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

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

New rule added to Guidelines - Don't share PM's

The mod team has agreed to the following addition to our forum guidelines.    We're making this change because it's been a recurring issue lately. People start arguing with each other, someone takes it to PM (which is the best place for it, instead of a back and forth in a topic or elsewhere in the forum), then someone screenshots that and posts it publicly in hopes to embarrass or ridicule the user. It's not only very unhelpful, it's further escalating an issue that will require the

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

Introducing our three new chat mods

Over the past few months we have been busy promoting some active chat members to help out over on the chat and I thought I'd introduce them to you today.

He also plays in a band called Passive Nation so don't forget to check them out. Our next addition to the team is HolidayContradiction. She joined the team last month (September). Her na

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

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.

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.

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.
