    A question for tonight's SOTG...

    I know you were asked about forums last time, and mentioned how the wall is more dynamic. True, it is more dynamic, but I think that comes at the cost of giving the community a shorter attention span. As a result of posts getting pushed off fairly quickly, we end up seeing some discussions repeat (such as the Everdrive one), and others that may take more time never really get going. Couldn't we have both due to their significantly different nature in the types of discussion they promote?

    Wondering if we could get an update on the tournament system. Not looking for dates or projections on completion, but more some specific tasks you need from the community for testing purposes (types of tournaments, extremes that need testing, various functions, etc...)

    I think the return of a general forum as a pilot would be a cool idea, for the reasons Gibgirl cites above.

    Also, what is the future of TG Editorial as part of the TG ecosystem? I noticed a decrease in articles being pushed out, with some days where there isn't any new content. News cycles can be slow of course but comparing to late August 2018 the average looked to be 4 - 5 articles compared to 1 - 2 articles currently.

    I agree with there being a need for forums. Ask the staff what they think as well. There have been many staff posts that ask us to "post your concerns in this thread regarding blah, blah, blah." I bet they got very few responses due to the post being here today and gone tomorrow. In fact, I once posted in one of their threads "here today, gone tomorrow" and it was. Along with my post. My post got deleted. Nobody responded because nobody saw it. It fell off the front page of blogs.

    My biggest complaint about no forums has been solved with the wiki, so I'm not super passionate about demanding forums return, however, i do have a slight preference for their return. So although it something i'm not willing to really argue about I will say i agree with the above comments.

    That does remind me of another question... we have the wiki, but it really feels like this side area that's there but not that useful. Can we get the wiki further integrated into the main TG site, make it feel like a relevant repository for information, guides for users, and the like? I would guess some of this at least can be done fairly easily, and the key is just the desire on the TG side to add the links to the right pages.

    Yeah, it would seem like adding a link to the wiki in places like the Help and Tutorial pages could go a long way to making it feel more integrated (and also easier to find if the Help and Tutorial page leaves one with additional questions)

    I'd like to get links to the guides we have already to the right places - the new user guide and the add new track guide - so that people are made aware of them when they're most useful. A submission guide could be good in the future, too.

    Beyond that, I think it'd be useful to have thinks like every game leaderboard automatically link to a wiki page for that game in some consistent format, and we can start building those as needed. That's the next level of integration, and would mean a bit more engineering work.

    every track now has a thread attached to it. I definitley think we should be very careful not to clutter that thread up, and so far people have been responsible. Using that thread just to point to the wiki is probably a good use of it.

    I was imagining something more integrated than just that, as I don't think we need/want a page per track. Just one per game. Put it in the leaderboard page game header, something like this:

    I need to push State of the Galaxies to 8pm tonight. I’ve been (and still am) at the hospital helping a loved one with post surgery recuperation.

    Will keep you posted if anything changes.

    Postpone it to a later date if needed, or wanted to.

    Agreed. Please don't worry about doing state of the galaxies versus being there for someone in a situation like this.

    I hope she recovers quickly!! Please send her our best wishes. Cancel tonight's show, take your time with her. She is way way way more important than answering our endless questions about getting a forum back.
