Are you that desperate to get an update post in before everyone else that you resort to posting about forum maintenance?
Just wondering, since the SEGA forums are not just PSU related, they're for several other games SEGA has as well, so it shouldn't even be in the PSU section in my opinion.

Imagine if they had to make an actual and meaningful update to something, it'd take a whole week. :P

How does it take that long to upgrade vBulletin and add a couple styles?

Oh right.


EDIT: Oh, and taking bets that it still looks absolutely terrible and generic. Though that's more the fault of vBulletin than SEGA.

You can already see a few changes, there's Sonic's friends!

I'm just seeing a generic vBulletin page. Admittedly, a newer generic vBulletin page, since this one has at least one bar that isn't simply a flat color.

EDIT: Now I'm getting the Sonic one. Refresh, and then suddenly Alpha Protocol? I guess they're just testing out the themes.

2X EDIT COMBO: Oh hey, the style chooser in the bottom left works. Hopefully they leave that enabled, since I'm betting almost all of their styles will be eye-stabbing abominations. Still wondering why they would pay so much any money for such shitty, bloated, ugly forum software.

IT KEEPS HAPPENING: Well, style chooser's gone now. What a surprise.

I still have the combo box, but all the themes are ugly.

And now it's back again.

Yeah, the least ugly one is the default vBulletin one, but it suffers from being painfully generic and full-width.

So they don't have to spend the money on actually advertising their games

Of course. Now it all makes sense.

Oh, and it's back up. And it looks like shit. They even changed the tolerable vBulletin default to an eye-searingly white generic SEGA theme. And my little javascript doo-dads are all gone, so I can't minimize parts of the bloated GUI that I don't give a shit about.


And the icons, oh Gog the icons. Huge topic icons. Bleeeeeeeck.

At least they got one thing right. Post details are no longer on top of the post with INCHES of blank, wasted space.

Space wasted on the SEGA forums:

Yeah they clearly got this right.

Yet somehow it is still less wasted space than previously.

All the forums have the same skin.

Are they planning on re-giving unique skins for each game forum (Ex: Sonic the Hedgehog, Phantasy Star Universe, etc.)?

I believe that's the plan.

Hopefully it won't suck or slow down scrolling like every other skin.

Your face? Yes.


Why can't they just use the style they had before moving to vBulletin, seriously.

You mean the one that was simple, straightforward, and easy both to read and navigate?

It's pretty obvious why.
