Okay, we understand. I'm sorry to hear that you will be discontinuing blogs. But you gotta do what you gotta do to make this as fast as possible. We need Neowin to be the fastest. Not the slowest. I don't like slow. Slow is as slow as a turtle trying to walk across land. :D But make sure when you upgrade, you keep all the themes like Pegasus, Darkside, Green, Midnight as well as Pro. :) Those are all the themes that we can switch between. And trust me, all of them look very good.

Do you mean the forums or the blogs?

Sorry, should have specified, meant the forum as a whole. I tried to search for a changelog between versions however, i came up empty handed.

Good decision, hopefully that will speed Neowin up a bit! ;)

They will go down in Neowin history :p


lol in more ways than one

We do, and there's nothing to report atm because we won't start adding hacks and a skin to it until it's final. Subs will get a test drive shortly before launch, but that probably won't be before January.


OMG He mentioned 'hacks' Someone report him to a moderator quick :p

I sorta used the blog here but it's something I can easily continue off-site if I wanted to.

In fact if I wrote things people actually wanted to read I'd probably design my own. But it's just the amount of effort required building it. :rofl:

I always thought IP.Blogs was a useless addon to IP.Board, and a horrible way to implement a blogging system of any kind.

Good riddance and good decision. :D


Couldn't agree more.

I'm damn glad I never invested any effort into that thing.

Also, how do you download the content and say... the comments etc?
I know probably anyone who used the feature is going to be able to just print to pdf all those sites, but I assume it'd be nice to know that other features, that won't get dropped but can use some data download-capability (*COUGH* PMs *cough*), could use a pack + download feature.

Well all the content belongs to Neowin, so I guess they can do what they want with it. It'd be a goodwill gesture if anything to allow people to download the content, but I don't want anything I've put on there saved. :laugh:

Why not just have a Blog forum, which only the subscribers have write access?
