Hello There, Guest!  LoginRegister
Welcome to the former forums for DidYouKnowGaming?! In March of 2013, VGFacts was launched and this community was merged into the new forums there. These forums were originally taken offline at that time but I brought them back as an archive while transferring sites to the new server. Registrations and all interaction (posting, editing, moderation, etc.) are disabled but everything can still be read. If you're interested in joining the community, head on over to https://www.vgfacts.com/forums/ and join there but I've always thought it was important to preserve a site's roots so these forums will forever be available in this read-only state. Enjoy!

Limiting the redirect pages
It would be cool if the redirect pages that come up after voting or posting or w/e were limited, like completely skipping those pages. They take a while to redirect you and sometimes I don't see a link to continue on. What do yall think?

RE: Limiting the redirect pages
The purpose of those redirects are the following:

1.- Give the user the option of retuning to the thread he was in, or skipping that and going back to the forum where the thread is in. You don't always want to go back to the same thread after voting or posting.
2.- In the future, it will help alleviate database server loads when there are a lot more users coming and going from the forums.

RE: Limiting the redirect pages
While they are irritating, they are greatly required. Since I run the server this forum is hosted on, I'd suggest that these pages are never turned off.
