Forum Changes! (UPDATED 4/29, LITHIUM FORUMS GOING DOWN.)   [ Edited ]

We’re very nearly ready to bring some very cool, very useful Community enhancements to light here on GameSpot; they’ve been a long time in the planning, and we think everyone is going to be pleased with them. With these upcoming changes, we’ve finally made the step of bringing our forums in-house. What this means for you all is that soon, you’re going to be seeing some new forums.

Okay, don’t panic! :) Details are as follows:

We’ll be switching the forums over sometime next week--all user stats and accounts are being retained. You won’t have to sign up again, and you’ll keep your current postcount and such. However, at this time, we are unfortunately not going to be able to bring over our massive amounts of forum posts. Your accounts will be unchanged, but the new forums will be a clean posting slate. Along with that, if you have any content currently on the forums that you want to archive for yourself, please take the time to do that this week.

To continue to bring you all the best experience possible, it was both necessary and a great time for us to integrate our forums with our community features and so the rest of the site. In the improvement vein, we’re also going to be merging our own game-specific forums with that of GameFAQs. GameSpot and GameFAQs users will each visit those boards with the interface of their respective sites, with a tag to denote which site they’re posting from. Merging the two communities on the game-specific level allows users from both sites to benefit from a larger, more active group of folks with which to discuss the pros and cons of their favorite games.

Thanks in advance for your patience as we work feverishly to bring you these enhancements, and please pardon any dust that we might raise along the way. There may be some forum downtime just before we bring everything live, and we’ll give advance notice if that’s the case. If you've got any questions or comments, please air them here, and we'll check in with answers and updates.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

UPDATE 4/29: The Lithium forums (these boards, our current boards) are GOING DOWN Monday, May 3rd at 9AM PDT, not to be seen again. Please grab anything you want to save before then.

In addition, our new forums and certain other special user features are currently scheduled to come up sometime the next day (Tuesday, May 4th). We need the day to migrate the user data over to the new boards and tighten everything up. There'll be an announcement on the site on Tuesday when this happens. Until then, just plan on having Monday off from the forums -- line up a good game to play!
