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!
-Petie

Tried it again on Chrome and Fox. It was not that.
When I clicked the "I Agree" on http://www.vgfacts.com/forums/member.php
it just redirected me to the same page.

Hmm, I'm going to ask Petie to come and look at this (as I have absolutely no idea). Hopefully he/she can fix it for everyone.

RE: IMPORTANT!!!!
Hey everyone. Sorry for the confusion with registrations. The issue was that I added a script to keep people from accidentally double-clicking submit buttons. Doing so evidently broke the registration though so I updated the script to ignore the registration button and it seems to work fine now. Again, my apologies for the mix-up and please let me know if you run into any more issues.

We are merging the forums of DYKG and VGFacts. Moderators will keep their positions.

I'll give you the same answer I gave on VGFacts:

Quote:Because this site [VGFacts] was custom written to integrate into the MyBB forum software for user accounts and for that to work, the site and the forum have to be in the same place.

Thank you very much your highness. (in an endearing way, not sarcastic)

I agree. This place is nice and all, but I think for what they actually want to do, the new forums are best. Plus, it seems like we have such a small community on this site. I would LOVE to see this become a bigger community. And it might be way easier to promote the other site than it is this one.

RE: IMPORTANT!!!!
Heh, gonna miss this old guy, we've had some great times though. When I look back in about 3 or so years, when we have a community rivalling some of the best froums, and the moderation team has banned more than they have posted (except Seriously Though, that guy is going to have more than 4x his original post count on the new site), we can make a thread to reminise about the old forum, and then tell all the newfags that they're new, and will never experience the glory of the original DYKG forum.

I've still got a question though, Quite a lot of people, including myself have contributed a lot to this site, with topics that still haven't been made into DYK's, even though they're filled with a lot of information, like my Dreamcast Facts topic, for example, that has been accepted.

What is going to happen to those threads? Are they going to just disappear, or are they being transferred to the other site, with all the information included?

Also, since the forums and closing down, will this mean the site, along with the DYKG Picture links will go?

It said that the forums are merging into one place. So.. it makes me wonder if all the stuff from here will eventually be over there?
