Both Dezoris and I are spending quite a bit of time working on the site.  Right now, we're not posting a TON in either the forums or on the news part of the site, but we're doing a BOATLOAD on the back end.

We're aware that we have to get user registration running, and running RELIABLY, and that we have to re-enable anonymous posts.  So, we're working on that.  We have to get Collections / Trading back online, too.  There's work to be done, for sure.

We're also going to be freshining up our "community extension" sites - YouTube, Frappr, and MySpace.  I'm working with The Video Games Show on getting their feed back up and running (allgames.net, their podcast host, has been having issues), and maybe even seeing if our two forum communities have something in common...  and I'm sure at some point that we'll be looking at my other domains (own about 14).

We're going to try some new stuff, in terms of content, as well - we're going to try to hit on hot topics more, do more previews (hell, SOME previews), have more video stories, and we might even get back into podcasting, who knows.

But additionally, we'd like to hear some feedback - let us know what you'd like to see in a video game community.  We're basically coming at this clean, starting fresh, and are looking to build something that people LIKE and USE.

We'd also love it if you'd tell a friend about the site. 

Thanks.

PS - I'm also having a child.  My wife will probably give birth next week, if what the Doctor is saying turns out (inducing labor).  During this time, it's likely that Dezoris will be running the site.  If I get time before then, I'll queue up some articles, and when possible, I'll participate.

Pssh...."child". There's always some excuse with you, isn't there?

I'd definitely like to see some new blood on these here forums, but I'd like to see some of the 'old blood' too.

Oh, and congrats on the kid, Mr. Larson!

Tell me about it! If I'm the only new blood, this will be a sad, sad situation for all of us =D.
Start telling everyone you know about the relaunch. It's going to require some more tender love and care, but the quality of our content is still up to the community. So the sooner we have good people contributing again, the better of Stage Select will be.

It's my understanding that new user registration will be available by early next week. That's the goal larsoncc and I are working towards, so keep your eyes pealed!

Did someone say "blood" and "new" in the same sentence?
