We're announcing a change to the ggFTW game news section and how we cross-post news. First things first, we've turned off the forum news posting robot. The forum copy of the game news has never worked quite right (think images and videos) and also damages the user experience on ggFTW by duplicating content. It also fragments discussion as members can either reply to the forum post or the original article with neither system being aware of the other's discussion thread. No worries, we'll have a sidebar widget coming soon to still expose the latest game news.
Second, we're ending the days of copypasta press releases. Game news posts on ggFTW will now be summarizations of the important points mixed with our own take on the news combined with that dry sarcasm you've come to expect from our team. This will help ggFTW by increasing the amount of unique content we publish as well as give you your daily dose of NoeJeko & team humor. Of course, we'll still publish relevant screenshots and videos along with the news posts for your enjoyment. We're also pulling updates and news from more sources now so hopefully you can find something useful.
Site (ggFTW) news (like this) will still cross-post (I wanted to use one more parenthetical statement in this sentence).
