- Point B: The fact.

 

 

There is no fact since we clearly have a division of opinion here. You should expect YoYo to apologize, it's the professional thing to do. If there is this much complaining over a trivial date setback, imagine what would happen if someone from YoYo wasted time being defiant. That'd give you something real to moan about.

I agree.   And YoYo Games has apologized.  Twice, at least.   Shaun is their representative here on the GMC.  And he's been very honest about the mistakes they've made.  Any further complaining about this just makes us all look petty. 

 

Surely, there's something more interesting to discuss at this point.

I'm sorry, I entirely forgot how facts work. I completely forgot that I can disagree with whatever information I am presented with and have it become an opinion.

I disagree that YoYoGames is a company, I say that it is a lampshade. Because we do not agree, YoYoGames being a company is no longer a fact. In fact, (irony), if we can all agree that YoYoGames is a lampshade, then it becomes a fact. Because that's how facts apparently work now.

You are now redefining what a fact is in an effort to defend YoYoGames from a minor fault that they have already admitted to and apologized for (apparently twice). You can probably imagine why that is both a pointless and an insane argument to put forward.

Edit:
I'm not even complaining about YYG anymore, at all. They're good. Once again, I have to point out that I'm complaining about this kind of blind defence of YYG. Even most Beilebers fall short of trying to redefine what a fact is in order to defend their messiah.

why cant yoyo start of 'GMC upgrade FAQ' thread? a place that they post FAQ's relating to what has been asked up till now, as well as allowing people to post questions that will be answered in a more moderated environment as to not pollute the topic, this one can be a public chat thread in which people can be serious or silly, with the other being a place devoted to the details of such a thing

 

just my two cents of course, regardless =)

In other words, a new topic that summarizes this topic?  Like a Reader's Digest condensed version?

 

Yeah... we need that.  <_<

wait, is this topic about the GMC upgrade?

Nah, even the mods got bored of talking about the upgrade.
 

Any further complaining about this just makes us all look petty.

Besides, seeing how YYG has not yet released any real information about what we are being upgraded to, there isn't much to really discuss regarding the upgrade. Just wild speculation and wish lists.

I think that is a good way to summarize.

 

I'm pretty happy with YYG too, they did a mistake, that's all. All of we make tons of mistakes. There isn't too much drama about it

 

Well, I'm waiting to see the new Community forums :P

 

Regards~

I think there's a lot of arguing here that's just focused around people's stances, differences of opinion and semantics and not really much about the forum upgrade itself any more. I feel like most questions have been answered as well as they can be at this stage and therefore it's left people with not much to do other than speculate and argue. I'm going to close this topic for now and probably put up a new one when I have more information to share. If anyone has questions about the update I'm available in a billion places from twitter (@shaunspalding) to email (shaun.spalding@yoyogames.com) to PMs on this board and so on. 

 

I really don't like closing topics in general, but I don't feel like there's much of importance that needs to be contributed here right now.

 

Again, I apologize for the sloppiness with how the schedule and plan has been presented from our end, but despite these frustrations I am still super excited about this upgrade. Xenforo has heaps of potential and lets us do so many things better. I'm confident you'll agree when you see it all in action =)

 

Stay tuned!
