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 begin with. To make it easier and put things all back in one place, everything is back together.

I'm considering adding a 'News' tag that we can use in the Green Day Chat for those who would prefer a simple place to see all the latest Green Day News topic. Vote in the poll above if you'd prefer we have that or just keep it as is now.

It looks like the merge might have caused some followed topics to show like there's new content again. You might have to go into those topics and read the last page or unfollow them so they get removed from the right "My Followed Topics' box.

This makes sense given the current nature of the forum. I imagine you might have to split it all up again if and when Green Day starts doing anything remotely interesting, though :P

That was suggested by other mods. I'm not so sure. I think we used to function pretty well when it's merged. I think one of the problems we have on GDC is that we can over-organize ourselves and things get lost and dying. For as many active members as we have the forum shouldn't feel so quiet.

What about Shenanigans?

AKA The Picture Thread Forum

Off-Topic: for threads like Random Thoughts, Angry/Happy/Sad Thread, Secrets Thread, other bullshit

Opinions & Current Events: for debates and related bullshit

The news tags might be helpful. Makes things a bit easier to navigate. How long has it been separate? I stopped posting in the Green Day sections long before then :P

When did you split the two? I can't seem to remember a time when they weren't separate (I say with less than 2 years under my belt :P )

Good question. I thought it was much more recent, but I can't find anything specific about it. It was after 21CB I believe, but I really don't know.

It would have been good to leave Random Green Day Thoughts pinned at the very least.

i could have sworn you guys just made green day news it's own forum like a year ago?

I thought so too. As I mentioned in the blog I really thought we did it not that long ago when we tried the GDA/GDC comments experiment. That wasn't more than 2 years ago. But I couldn't find anything.

The merging totally screwed up my followed topics list. :( Now every topic is either really old or when I click it brings me to the very beginning of the topic. It's driving me a bit crazy.

Wow it doesn't seem like it was that long ago to me but I suppose it was. Can't have been that long before that though.

This is what happens when Liam comes back to the team.

I've been back on the team for like 3 weeks :P Also I was actually against this idea, I wanted it to stay the same.

I like this change, I use the live bookmark a lot, and the popular news topics were never listed on that. At least this way I can see the most popular topics from both forums when I am at work, without having to log in or switch between the two.

I know I'm weird but it's really disturbing when your usual [virtual] landmarks change. (yes I'm annoying..)

Now that you did so, rename them to News and Chat.

It was always just called Green Day Chat before. I think that's OK, because "chat" can encompass lots of different things, opinions, questions, essays, debates, references etc, and news can be another one of them. Just as General Chat includes news and other topics, Green Day Chat can include Green Day news and other Green Day topics.

Finally! Great decision.

Now if you merge Green Day and General back together, all will be well in the world again :P

Great! I couldn't see the point on why some things were in Green Day Chat instead of News.

Sorry, I don't understand. Because I don't see any Green Day News subforum... :/

Yeah we've got rid of the Green Day News subforum, and moved all the topics from it to Green Day Chat. So all the news topics and "chat" topics are mixed together in one place now.
