    I would look at that forum. i'm all about discovering new games, i keep a folder full of bookmards especially for upcoming games so i don't forget about them.

    and i've never seen any spam post deleted since i've been here.

    Well that'd be mainly because when when it's done fully there's no trace.

    I have no powers for creating new forums I'm afraid, so you can't base any assumption of a decision on if I post in a thread or not. I do try and pass on threads and suggestions to those that do and the mag staff, and I know they do indeed read the forums.

    This guy's got the right of it. They only post where they think they'll get the most views, so giving them their own forum to be ignored in won't do us any good because they'll just post in the more frequented parts. It'd be like expecting the gay community to stick to their usual clubs on a gay pride parade day.
