Really enjoying the q&a sessions and the fact giveaways are international now, though I haven't been able to get on the news page for a few days.

It has definitely improved, the whole site is more active and there is so much more happening. I find myself going on the website a lot more often than I ever used to. Also, thanks for making the competitions open to people outside the US.

I am impressed with how much the Idiot Nation has improved, love that competions are now international, and that they are so frequent. The Tshirt for renewal is pretty cool, but what i would really like is some form of RSS feed, live bookmark or reliiable notifications. I often find out about new News topics and competitions through the GDC, rather than the GD site, which is a bit odd, don't you think? I would definitely visist the site more often if I knew there was something new there to see, rahter than randomly checking it out if and when I remembered.

It is so much better in the last few months. The recent interviews and competitions that have been open to everyone have been great, even thought I haven't managed to win one yet. I'll be renewing soon enough so I hope the good work continues :)

Still not free :/

It doesn't need to be. That would defeat the purpose

I seem tor remember there was no notification it was running out - I had to trawl though my email to find out when I joined.

Contests are international, the list of promises on the sign up page is truthful and accurate, there's LOADS of cool interviews and contests going on, and it even looks good - I'm really happy with it! I'm really impressed with all the improvements that have been made, all the stuff on there now along with the usual ticket presales mean it's well worth the money now.

The only suggestion I have is that the free gift (that you have to pay postage for) you get for renewing should be optional. Personally I'd rather have the option of just paying $20 and not getting a gift than be forced to pay an extra $8 for a gift I don't want. I think it'd be pretty easy to add the option in and it wouldn't cost them anything (in fact it would save them money since they'd be providing less free gifts), so I don't see why not. So yeah a "$20 to renew" or "$28 to renew and get a gift" option would be good.

Thank you. Even though Ola was joking there are people seriously complaining about it. "What can't you guys do what Paramore did????????? Make it free for EVERYONEEE!!!!!!" Then what's the point? The pre-sales wouldn't be pre-sales, the contests wouldn't be exclusive, ect. It's basically like having two websites. It's a very, very stupid idea.

/rantover

But anyway, I'm loving what you guys are doing with IC so far!
