Blogs have now been added to GameHandout. If you wish to transfer your reviews over to the blog feel free to.

As always, your insight is always welcome, we're going to go into a trail process, if y'all don't like the blog after a month, and rather keep the review section of the forum we will remove the blog and keep things how they are, if you like the blog we will remove the review section. So if you have reviews in the review section I highly suggest you transfer everything over to the blog now if you'd like to keep everything.

Make sure to vote, and let us know how you like the blogs.

I love the idea! It makes it look so much easier to blog a review then post a review, why?
Well, you can view parts of the review and you can continue reading the review on the blog whilst on the forum reviews, you have to hover over the title to view it.
It's just so much cleaner and nicer, the fact that you can continuously scroll down without pressing "Next >" or "1","2","3" you get the point.
Oh and also, the fact that you can view specific tags is amazing!

Burn them.
Don't, I likes them <3 XD

Also: "Review in forums are better, remove the blog"
Even if we all were to decide the reviews on the forum were better, what if we still want the blog for ranting/boasting-related reasons? XD Such as how that last gaming session sucked or rocked, or etc that wouldn't quite work forum wise?

I'm off to try the blog~ :love: (does it work with the GH$ script, btw?)

As of now, I don't think we have to worry about the blog going anywhere. People seem to like them :D So I won't delete it.

No, it does not work with GH$ sadly.

Aww, guess we can't have it all. :p Thanks for re-adding the blogs though! <3 I like the looks so far~
[DOUBLEPOST=1437934065,1437933018][/DOUBLEPOST]@Xyphien How do we edit (and delete) individual entries? I can't seem to spot a way.

I think I have that disabled, I was confused if the settings meant to delete your own, or everyones posts DX I'll fix this in a second.

*Edit* try it now :D

It looks a little interesting but also kinda confusing because I see this blog system for the first time :D But I'll try to get used to this and I think I may write something very soon.. I've got something specific I'd like to share with you and find out what you think about it :)

This may sound like a stupid question, but are we ok to use them as a blog if we wish - or would you prefer them just to be used for reviews and the like?

You can practically post anything in there - your thoughts, reviews, make it a diary... Or at least it says so when you open "My blog" :)

NO! Limitations are key to a successful forum! You're not allowed to post ANYTHING BUT REVIEWS!!!

JK @iXanon like @IceGolem said you can post anything as long as it's in the rules. So, no nudity, sex stories, etc. lol. Keep it PG13+ XD

@Xyphien while the review section is still up, should we cross-post our reviews or post just on the blogs?
I'd cross-post because I'm unsure what I'm going to do with the forum reviews yet honestly. IDK if I'm going to just move it to the trash, or keep it up. That way you can still make some forum money for writing reviews.

Sounds like a plan, thanks! :)

Heh, just thought I'd check - I didn't know if you had some kind of plan in mind like completely changing the Blogs into a Review Portal.

No nudity or sex stories from me, as if I'd share so cheaply.. You'd have to at least buy me a beer first! ;)
